Red Dead Redemption is All Set to Launch on 17th August But There’s a Catch


Red Dead Redemption, the epic open-world western adventure released by Rockstar Games, has continued to captivate gamers since its initial release. With its remake set to finally launch on Nintendo Switch and Playstation 4 on August 17th, gamers are gearing up for exploring John Marston, our protagonist's journey into the wild west.

Marston's journey is a treacherous one, fraught with perilous encounters, moral dilemmas, and the ever-looming specter of betrayal. So players may find themselves in need of a little break from the ruthless, unforgiving expanse of the American frontier. That's where cheat codes come in handy, making John Marston's journey turn into an even wilder ride.

How to Use Cheats in Red Dead Redemption

  1. Pause the Game: Begin by pausing the game to bring up the Pause Menu.

  2. Access the Options Menu: Within the Pause Menu, scroll down to the "Options" tab.

  3. Select Cheats: From the "Options" tab, select "Cheats."

  4. Read the Warning: On this screen, you'll encounter a text warning notifying you that activating Cheat Codes will disable Trophies and deactivate Autosave.

  5. Input Cheat Code: To input a Cheat Code, Triangle (PlayStation), Y (Xbox), or X (Switch).

  6. Confirmation: If you successfully input the Cheat Code, a congratulatory pop-up will appear to acknowledge your cheat activation.

  7. Toggle Cheats: After entering a Cheat Code, you can easily manage your cheats. Just head back to the Cheats screen in the Pause Menu where you can toggle them on and off according to your preferences.

List of Cheat Codes in Red Dead Redemption

While cheat codes undeniably add an extra layer of excitement and unpredictability to your time in Red Dead Redemption, it's important to understand the trade-offs they entail. By activating these codes, you're effectively opting out of some of the game's structured achievements and progression tracking, as Trophies and Achievements won't be attainable while cheats are in use. They also disable auto saving.

However, these limitations don't make cheats any less enticing. In fact, they can be a blast if you're looking to break free from the constraints of your regular playthrough and indulge in some wild, chaotic fun.
