Cheats for Red Dead Redemption 2 have been discovered just days after the game has launched for the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4. The cheats for the game range from getting drunk to unlocking infinite amounts of ammo.
Gamespot has a list of the cheats currently unlocked for Rockstar Games’ Red Dead Redemption 2 for the Xbox One and PS4. You’ll have to access the cheat menu by pressing the start button and going into the “Settings” menu. Proceed to either press Triangle on the PS4’s DualShock or press ‘Y’ on the Xbox One controller to open the cheat menu.
There are two ways to unlock some of the codes, either by putting in the codes into the cheat menus as a password. Alternatively, you can collect the newspapers scattered throughout the game world, which will also allow you to activate the cheats from the cheats menu.
