    These cheats are kinda lame. I know you cant save or earn trophies, but the fact that they’re there makes EARNING things less rewarding. Why EARN the money to buy [x] weapon when you can just cheat and buy it. The anticipation of earning something huge is kind of diminished when I know I can cheat and accomplish the same thing–even if it doesn’t save.

    Shouldn’t the first cheat be Invincibility rather than the listed Invisibility…

    A question for anyone, How do you take a wanted person alive, and /or hog tie them? I always have to kill them which is less the bounty?

    You have to do a mission at the McFarlane ranch… they give you a lasso after you finish the horse wrangling mission.

    got to bonnie and you have to do the mission when your lasso a horse then you break them by riding on their back which is so fun first game ever to do that bull riding thing and its always better to play without codes until you finish the game so you get all your pts

    Out of curiosity, does this mean that once a cheat is enabled, you can’t save at all, ever again? Or does this mean, you enable the cheat, then can disable it and save? The former would seem a bit brutal, basically ending your character for good because you can’t save further. Has anyone tried these?

    Well if you can’t save, you wouldn’t be able to overwrite your previous save game… so you would always be able to load where you last saved.

    The cheats barely work. I have tried them and the weapons cheat only gives u like 3 guns where as it should give u all of them as u have the ability to switch weapons instantly. The invincibility randomly turned off when i was in a firefight and since i was going rambo with a knife i died. Basically, the cheats suck.

    basicly the cheat codes are for those that have already finished the game and they want to have some fun, because they don´t have to save the game anymore (since they have already finished the game)…

    if you use the cheats you will not be able to save any further progress, so once you hit that cheat button you better have saved first cuz anything you do there after is all for fun…when you quit the game the last time you saved is where you will start(with cheats off). So if you dont have auto save on make it to a camp and quick save before letting lose or you will have to do what ever you did in the whole session over again. Once i saved and then went on a fun run(killing townies) but forgot to turn off auto-save….as soon as I killed a rabbit(part of a challenge) it auto-saved and I was stuck with the bad deeds….not good…best to have a save file that is a mirror but you can go in and go nuts, just dont overwrite your “real game” good luck

    These cheats are there for wankers who can’t play the game properly. Too shit to play w/o cheats but they still wanna finish the game regardless of achievements or trophies, just like GTA! I personally NEVER use cheats with ANY R* game due to the fact that if you do, you cannot finish the game 100%. Fucking hell, still at work and DREAMING about RDR!!! Cant WAIT to get home with a smoke, cold beer and RDR!!

    If I pay $65 for a game, I should have the OPTION to cheat my way through. I have other obligations and unfortuanately don’t like spending hours on missions that can be completed and equally enjoyed in minutes. It’s personal preference, so don’t make it sound like some kind of gaming ethics law. If u don’t like cheats DON’T TURN EM ON BOZOS!

    We use cheats for one simple reason, it’s FUN!!! So if you are one of those people that thinks cheats are overated then try it out and you will find that it is a lot funer than dying all the time by the predators of the game. Like the other guy said if you don’t like cheats then don’t use them.

    none of the usefull people are comenting or answrering any of your questions. So I hope this clears up all of you confused folk :)

    ——————————————————————————————————————————–

    On red dead redemption these are how to do them;

    Advice on saving: After using any cheats you shouldnt save, because it will save it with all the modes that using cheats activates. What I mean is if you save after using cheats you may never get back to reciving achivments or saving newly unlocked things when your on that save station / save slot. So what I recomend you do is save your game before you use the cheats and then after using the cheats just turn your Xbox/PS3 off, or however you like to quit your game!

    ——————————————————————————————————————————

    The list of cheats and what they do:

    Invisibility – you will not die
    Code to insert: “he gives strength to the weak”

    Infinite Horse Stamina – you will not slow down or be bucked off
    Code to insert : “make hay while the sun shines”

    Infinite Ammo – your ammo will never end
    Code to insert: “abundance is everywhere”

    You have the ~max~ ammo, that wont run out
    Code Phrase – The root of all evil, we thank you!

    Horse will appear
    Code to insert “beasts and man together”

    Unlocks all areas on your map that may be unlocked for you at the moment
    Code to insert “You got yourself a fine pair of eyes”

    You play as the character JACK
    Code to insert “Oh my son, my blessed son”

    Unlocks Gentleman Suit
    Code to insert “Don’t you look fine and dandy”

    Will able you to keep jumping to the hight you want anf walk in air
    Code to insert: “You can’t stop me now”

    Unlocks Sepia Filter (screen has a cartoony brownish kind of effect)
    Code to insert “The old ways is the best ways”

    Second set of weaponary (second half of weapon circle)
    Code to insert “I’m an American. I need guns” (the full stop is necessary)

    Will make you loose your bounty level
    Code to insert: “They Sell Souls Cheap Here”

    Allows you to walk through walls/objects
    Code to insert: “Where is my barrier at”

    Bounty or wanted level will not occour
    Code to insert: “I wish I worked for Uncle Sam”

    Become invisible
    Code to insert: “Now you see me, now you dont” (the comma in necessary)

    ——————————————————————————————————————————

    The best game play settings:

    I recomend you use subtitles becasue for the people who watch the cut-scenes somtimes you cant understand what they are saying.

    Screen brightness = 70 (2 noches up from the normal recomendations)
    contrast = 40 (1 move down from normal recomendations)

    Cursor speed = 70 (2 noches up from the normal recomendations)

    ——————————————————————————————————————————-

    I hope this helped, If you need more help or other game recomendations just contact me on semaj10@live.co.uk – and dont think now you have got my email you can spam me and all that shit becuase this email is my second and I use it for things like this only!

    Thanks ‘ I wouldnt be on this forum again ;p
