Cheats allow the player to access a variety of features and resources in the game immediately. However, in Red Dead Redemption, this instant gratification comes at a steep price:
- Using cheats will block Achievements/Trophies, being awarded to players on the PlayStation 3, or Xbox 360.
- Any game saves made after invoking a cheat are forever "tainted" as Cheat-Saves.
- Be careful with game saves, however. If, down the road, the player decides to start accumulating achievements/trophies, he/she should start over with a new game, or restore/load a "clean" game save.
- Or going down the cheat path, keep in mind that RDR game save files can be copied to an external storage device (some games don't allow this).
- Lastly, cheat-saves are easy to identify - the save description begins with a star within parentheses. For instance, this is a Cheat-Save:
How to Enter and Use Cheats Edit
To add new cheats, go to the Options menu and select the "Cheats" option. Then press "Triangle" (PS3) or "Y" (Xbox 360) and type in the cheat phrase (from our handy table below!) Once activated, players cannot obtain Achievements/Trophies even if the cheats are turned off afterwards and will have to load a previous save to do so once more.Some cheats can also be found in the bottom corner of in-game Newspapers or written on the walls of certain structures. Other cheats become available after successfully linking a Xbox Live or PSN account with the Rockstar Social Club (see below).
Note: Cheats ARE NOT case sensitive and they do require the correct commas and punctuation. Also, some cheats may only work for the PS3.
