The Fastest Gun In The West?

If you want to be the fastest gun in the west, breaking the rules is your quickest way to do it. Red Dead Redemption 2 has a lot going for it, but it’s hardly a perfect game. For one thing, the game’s survival elements can occasionally be downright tedious, requiring the player to keep track of multiple meters monitoring their character’s health, stamina, and dead eye ability. Sometimes these resources can get pretty hard to manage, taking away from the more exciting parts of the game.

You can see how Rockstar came up with all of this — real-life cowboys needed to eat and drink, so Arthur does too — but it’s tedious, and many players would rather not deal with it. Thanks to Rockstar, you don’t need to. The cheat code “You seek more than the world offers” will refill and fortify all of your bars, making them extra strong. The only catch is that you can’t unlock this cheat until Chapter 6, near the end of the campaign. Also, since you can’t save when cheats are on, it’s not a code that will help get you through the main story. But if you’re exploring Red Dead Redemption 2’s post-game content, and you don’t want to worry too much about survival, then use this cheat code.

It’ll let you take your mind off of staying alive. With all of the cattle rustlers, bounty hunters, and ne’er-do-wells in the world, life on the range can be rough. So why not bring a little laughter into your Red Dead experience? By entering the code “Would you be happier as a clown?” you can spawn your very own circus wagon, guaranteed to bring smiles to the faces of men, women, and children all across the frontier.

Okay, maybe that’s overselling it. The circus wagon isn’t much more than a carriage with a cage built in, and it’s not that useful in the game’s main campaign. If you’re looking for a ride that’s a little less flashy, the code “Keep your dreams simple” will spawn a simple one-horse wagon, while a different code, “The best of the old ways” will summon a stagecoach. We still recommend the circus wagon, though. A vehicle like that is simply how the west was fun.

Red Dead Redemption 2’s honor system goes a little something like this: do good deeds and your honor goes up. Act like a villain and your honor goes down. But maybe honorable players want to see what life is like on the other side of the law, and don’t have the stomach to commit such dastardly deeds. Maybe villains want to murder and steal their way across the Wild West, but can’t handle the shame that comes along with it.

If either of those sound like you, these are the cheats you’re looking for. “Virtue unearned is not a virtue,” raises your honor, and can only be unlocked during Chapter 4. “You revel in your disgrace, I see,” however, sets your honor as low as it’ll go, and can be used at any time. And if you get tired of that, then we have some more good news: “Balance. All is balance” resets your honor to a neutral position. Make some poor decisions and want a second chance?
