Programmers Cheats

One of my favorite little touches of the game is the confirmation quote you hear when a successful cheat input is registered; it changes based on what stage you’re on.

  • Become Invincible
    While paused, enter: Select, L2, Select, R2, Triangle, Triangle, Triangle, Square. You’ll hear a verbal comment to confirm. Back in game, your armor will possibly drop for one or two more hits, then after that you’re invincible.
  • Cycle Gun Modes
    While paused enter: Select, L2, Select, R2, Select, Select, Select. Unpause and you’ll hear a verbal comment to confirm. Your gun will now raise up to a double shot. Repeat the code and it changes to a triple shot. If you repeat it once more, it returns to the single shot.
  • Level Skip
    While paused enter: Select, L2, Select, R2, Triangle, Triangle, Triangle, Down, Down, Down. Once unpaused, you’ll hear a verbal comment to confirm and the ‘Operation Complete’ sequence will begin.
  • Maximum Armor and Fuel
    While paused enter: Select, L2, Select, R2, Triangle, Triangle, Triangle, Circle. Once unpaused, you’ll hear a verbal comment to confirm. Now both Armor and Fuel will be fully stocked.
  • Maximum Weapons
    While paused enter: Select, L2, Select, R2, L1, L2, R1, R2. Once unpaused, you’ll hear a verbal comment to confirm and you’ll have a bountiful amount of weapons.
  • Perfect / Clean Pause
    Pause the game, then press Select, L2, Select, R2, Down, R1, R2. Once unpaused, pause again and you’ll have a clean view of the paused game. Repeat the code to bring back the Pause Menu. This is fantastic for people looking to do screenshots.
  • Summon Wingman
    While paused enter: Select, L2, Select, R2, Square, Square, Square, Circle. Once unpaused, you’ll hear a verbal comment to confirm. Your wingman will appear in a few seconds to help save the day.
  • Upgrade Current Weapon
    While paused enter: Select, L2, Select, R2, L1, L1, R1, R1. Once unpaused, you’ll hear a verbal comment to confirm. A star will appear next to your currently equipped weapon.
  • Two-Player Mode
    At the Main Screen press and hold Select + R2 on both controllers. A new menu will pop up with 1 Player, Options, and 2 Players Vs. If you choose Options, Player 2 will now have their own controller setting. The map will then show NYC Death Match. Once 2 Players Vs is set, you and a 2nd player will have a one-on-one overhead aerial battle.
