Red Dead Redemption 2 Cheats and Every Code

With these Red Dead Redemption 2 cheats, you can get money, spawn gear and tools, and more. This can make things easier or just more fun.

Whereas GTA 5 cheats can make all kinds of weird and wonderful things happen, the codes here are more limited.

They never leave the realm of reality, except when guns, gold, horses, and other things appear out of nowhere.

That doesn’t mean that these Red Dead Redemption 2 cheat codes won’t change the game a lot. You can change your traits, get money, weapons, clothes, and other gear, and open up the Wild West to your needs right away.

These codes couldn’t be easier to use, either. All you have to do is type in a line you find in Red Dead Redemption 2 newspapers.

You don’t even have to look for them because we’ve put them all here so you can use them quickly and easily.

So, here are all the cheats and codes for Red Dead Redemption 2 that you can use.

Where can you find Red Dead Redemption 2 cheat codes?


Most people who have played Red Dead Redemption 2 have probably used a cheat code without even realizing it. Many are written in odd places, like on ice or on a cabinet in a lonely shack.

But there is one way to find trick codes that will always work: buy newspapers. Head to Valentine, Saint Denis, or Blackwater and buy the New Hanover Gazette, Saint Denis Times, or Blackwater Ledger from a newspaper vendor there.

Some newspapers won’t be available until you’ve passed certain story parts, and some cheats won’t work until you’ve reached a certain level, so to get the most out of the game, you should probably finish the campaign first.

The newspapers don’t cost much, and if you’ve already won the game, you should have a lot of money, so grab as many as you can as soon as you can.

After that, open your satchel, take out a newspaper, turn it over, and zoom in on the bottom of the page.

If the paper has a cheat code, a phrase will be written in a small tagline under one of the stories. This is the phrase you have to put in to get to the cheat code.

How to Enter Red Dead Redemption 2 Cheats?

In Red Dead Redemption 2, you have to be in the game to enter a trick code because you have to go to the SETTINGS.

Be sure to save before you use cheats, because cheats turn off saves and awards. Now that we’re done with that, here’s how to use a trick code in Red Dead Redemption 2:

  • Step 1: Pause the game.
  • Step 2: Select SETTINGS.
  • Step 3: Press TRIANGLE (on PS4) or Y (on Xbox One) on the controller to enter the Cheats menu.
  • Step 4: When in the Cheats menu, press TRIANGLE or Y again to open the text bar.
  • Step 5: Enter the cheat code.

Once you enter a cheat code, you’ll see a message confirming you’ve unlocked the cheat. Turning cheats off will allow you to save and unlock achievements again. You can toggle cheats OFF or ON in the Cheats menu.

How to unlock cheats with newspapers in Red Dead Redemption 2

As mentioned above, there are certain requirements in the form of Newspapers, which are sold at vendors in settlements.

You need to own the corresponding Newspaper in order to unlock the cheat, which is printed at the bottom if you flip it over.

If you try to enter these types of cheats ahead of time, the game will give you an error message saying ‘You do not meet the prerequisites to unlock this cheat’.

There are three types of different newspapers, which will release new editions throughout the story.

You can choose to purchase them from Valentine (New Hanover Gazette), Strawberry (Blackwater Ledger) and Rhodes (Saint Denis Times) as you go, or wait until the end to catch up on the back catalogue.

For some reason there are times where you cannot buy a newspaper from a vendor. If you come across this, we recommend coming back later to try again.

As far as we understand, none are missable, so don’t sweat it if you pass one by.
