Red Dead Redemption 2: Get Unlimited Ammo, Super Horses & More | Cheat Codes List

Red Dead Redemption 2 is packed with classic, old-school cheat codes. The kind you have to input yourself — and there are tons of them. You can summon circus wagons, make yourself drunk instantly, reward Arthur with a stockpile of guns, or even get unlimited ammo. Some cheats have special requirements, but some of them you can input at any point in the game.

Cheat codes aren’t just random words — they’re found in-game on newspaper. Eagle-eyed players can purchase newspapers from settlement vendors, then search the paper for strange, out-of-place phrases. You can buy your first newspaper in the town of Valentine, and it comes with an unlimited ammo toggle. Not half bad. Here’s all the cheat codes the community has found so far.
