1 - About Red Dead Redemption 2 Cheats PS4, Xbox, and PC

These cheats are pretty easy to access in general - you can go on a rampage with infinite ammo and heavy weapon at a moment's notice... however, there is a set of rules that you must take note of.

Red Dead 2 Newspaper Cheat

  • No saves can be created while cheats are turned on.
  • Achievements or Trophies are disabled the moment cheats are turned on.
  • Cheats won't work unless you have bought a newspaper or examined one in-game.

2 - How to activate Cheats?

Head to Saint Denis, Valentine and Blackwater and pick up the Saint Denis Times, New Hanover Gazette and Blackwater Ledger respectively from the newspaper seller in town. Certain newspapers will only be available after you have passed a certain point in the story, and some cheats are actually locked off based on how far you have progressed. Because of this, you might want to finish the main campaign first to get the best experience.

You can also find various cheats in the open world, etched onto the surfaces in the environment as well.


These newspapers are dime a dozen... and if you have already beaten the game you should have plenty of money for them. Pick up all available copies and once you have done that, open your satchel, inspect and flip them over. Zoom to the bottom of the paper - if it has a cheat code, there would be a little tagline under an article contain a phrase. That phrase is what you have to type in to activate the cheat code.
