Finding cheat codes
Every highway sign you see in The Matrix: Reloaded is a cheat for the game,
Enter The Matrix.
Airport level: Take out helicopter
During your battle with the helicopter as Ghost, use the following strategy.
Focus Run across the room to where the wall starts to curve. Back up against the
wall facing the away from the large glass window. Hold Auto Aim and when the
SWAT starts to jump down through the window, use your Focus and dispatch them
with the least amount of ammunition possible. Go back to where you were against
the wall earlier and wait for the helicopter to pass over. When it does, it will
shoot the wall. If you are in the correct location, it will not hit you. After
you hear the bullets stop, run around the wall and the helicopter will be
exposed without any protection. Use your Focus and dump at least a clip into it.
Then, return to the wall and repeat the process. It only takes three to four
times to take down the helicopter.
Playing as Ghost, and after you have just shot off the plane's tire, you will
encounter the agent chopper. Change your weapon from the M95 Sniper Rifle to the
SG - 552. Immediately stand almost as far back as you can go from your current
position, so that you are not too close to where the chopper will appear. The
moment you see it, use Focus and fire at the same time. The chopper should take
major damage, but will leave your health at a minimum of about 20% before
backing off. It will then try to attack you from the right; turn about 90
degrees to your right and get ready to blast it with the remaining ammunition.
Make sure you that you do not stay too far back, because your shots may have
less chance of hitting. You may get killed here if your reflexes are not fast
enough. Also, if you defeat the chopper you may be left with just 1% health, but
this is enough to get you out of there, let you save your game, and continue the
war to save Zion.
An easy way to defeat both helicopters in The Airport is to drop weapons at the
ticket counter just before you meet the first helicopter. Using Ghost, under the
hard difficulty setting, you can hack and view the map for The Airport, which
shows the code PNSRZ10. Use the "DROP" command with that code and get two M240
weapons at the ticket counter just before the first helicopter battle. Using an
M240 takes about eight seconds to kill a helicopter. For the first helicopter,
wait behind a wall for it to turn around after firing, then run out to unload on
it. It should go down before it makes its way to the roof to drop cops through
the window. For the second helicopter, hide behind the columns in the tower and
use the "FOCUS" and "STRAFE" commands to shoot at it and still keep moving
towards the opposite column. It should take about three times if you follow this
method with the M240. The difficult part about using the M240 is remembering not
to waste it in the time between the two helicopter battles.
When using various cheats, including "Unlimited Focus", "Unlimited
Health", "Unlimited Ammunition", and "Maximum Firepower", the game places a
grenade or bomb immediately where you begin the level (only on some levels). It
does not kill you, but will knock you for a loop. For example, on the "Agent On
Board" level, you start out besides Axel. If one of those cheats are enabled,
the bomb will blow up Axel and you will die, ending the game. You must play this
level without cheats in order to complete it. The way to get away from the bomb
is run before it explodes.
To unlock the swordfight, follow these steps. Open the Hacking program from the
main menu. Open a file that has the game completed. Note: You must have
completed the game first in order for this cheat to work; and the game file you
select at the Hacking menu must have the game completed. Type LOGIN and press
Enter. Type GUEST and press Enter. Type DIR, then a space. DIR should now appear
in your command list. Access the B Drive through the DIR command. Select TOOLS
from the B Drive. It will be locked and will ask you for an access code. The
access code consists of 1s and 0s. You must guess the access code, as it is
different each time. It is only five digits long. Once you have access to the
TOOLS on the B Drive, type all the .EXE files (without the .EXE after them). For
example, type DECODE then a space. DECODE will now appear in the command list.
Repeat this for all other .EXE files in the TOOLS folder in the B Drive. Now,
access VIRTUAL on your command list. Type in FROZENFISH as the password. An
authentication test will start. An image of a Chinese symbol will appear, but it
will be scrambled. The image is broken into 9 squares, and each square will have
five different choices. You must change all the pieces so that a complete image
appears. You have a limited amount of time to do this. Once you guess a correct
image, the timer will stop and you will be taken back to the hacking screen.
Look at the top of the screen. If it says "Solution: Blue", then the line will
be traced and you will have to enter TRACEKILL and then press enter as fast as
possible or all progress will be lost. Once you enter TRACEKILL, you will have
to start back at accessing VIRTUAL on your command list. However, if it
says "Solution: Red", then you will hear a message from Neo and get access to
the V Drive. Open the V Drive and get all the commands from the TOOLS folder on
your command list. Open the ROOTSEARCH program. Now, open the ROOT folder in the
B Drive and get the two commands there on your command list. Enter the MAIL
command and type THISISNOTREAL as the password and type YES. You will get a list
of phone numbers:
Select the DIAL command and dial 001949555010. You should get a message from
Persephone. Next dial 0013105550111. You will get you a message from Trinity.
She will give you a number. Select PORTKEY and enter the number. She will start
to talk to you. Type NO to both questions and she will give you a program called
CRACK on your command list. Open it, then type 8RAM. It should look like
this: "CRACK 8RAM". You now have access to the RAM drive. Go to DIR on your
command list and access the RAM drive. A list of folder names will appear. Open
the TRINITY folder. Get the Training command on your DIR by typing TRAINING then
a space. Go to your command list and select TRAINING. On you command list, a
file called SWORD.DSK will come up. Select it. It has now uploaded the sword
onto you character in the Matrix. Quit the hacking program and select "Save
Progress". You can use the sword when you start that game file. It can be used
in any stage, but will only a[[ear when fighting enemies by pressing Punch +
Kick. You have to enter it again when you turn off the game. Go to the Hacking
program, select that file again, select TRAINING, then SWORD.DSK.
Hack into The Matrix
Once you have saved, you can select the Hacking option and begin to work on
hacking into The Matrix itself. As the Matrix is quite simply a simulation, its
rules are no different to a computer systems. This allows you to not only access
all stored files, but you can change the physical laws of the system (as
mentioned in the "cheat" descriptions) Laws like gravity can be bent, for a
greater time/effect than the limited focusing alone. To take advantage of the
Hack System's abilities, you will need to know exactly what to enter following
the command prompt (default A Drive standard (A:\)): Enter DIR to display
directory choices. You can simply type .EXE then press Enter. The executable
will be opened. It is not the same with .TXT files, as you must type READ first
before the text file selection is revealed in Command List. Simply type DIR then
a space followed by B:\ for the contents of the B Drive to be revealed for
selection, rather than typing individual filenames. After experiencing the
rabbit hole for yourself, the "CHEAT.EXE" is invaluable for those with free
minds looking to further enhance skills, and bend the rules of The Matrix. After
opening the executable, you will be required to enter specific codes, which will
directly alter rules of The Matrix, making it easier for you to utilize your
ability to focus the mind, and other aspects. Use it wisely.
For an easy way to unlock cheat mode, at title screen select "Hack". Press any
key when instructed. Once the system has loaded, type DIR. You will eventually
see various choices. One of these choices will be "TOOLS". Instead of typing it
in, go all the way to the left where your options are "HELP and DIR".
Click "DIR", then you will see the same choices on the screen above. Click
on "TOOLS". From there you will see more choices "CHEAT.EXE" and so on.
Click "CHEAT.EXE" and enter in any the codes.
Answer The Phone level: Engage in early duel with an agent
Playing as Ghost on the city rooftops, after evading the many gaps and climbing
the ladders, the agent that burst through the door drops down to destroy you. If
you choose to hide behind the left wall and attempt to fire off rounds from
around the corner at this agent, he will unsurprisingly dodge every bullet. If
you Focus, you should be able to jump over the gap between you and the agent,
and will be able to engage in hand-to-hand combat. However, at this point it is
extremely hard to win; so continue to jump across to your left. Fall down into
the lower area. Now instead of taking the cop out and running up the stairs,
dispatch the cop(s), but wait around long enough to see the agent. If he fires
at you, then Focus and bullet dodge to get close to him. You now have enough
space to fully challenge this agent without being closed in. Battling an agent
is more intense (and difficult) than taking on any groups of police or SWATs,
because they can avoid all bullets, have shattering strength, and cannot be
fully destroyed (except of course by Neo). You will have to Focus almost all of
the time in order to knock him down, and inevitably you will soon find yourself
on the brink of death. Run up the stairs and to the phone if low on health.
Note: Although you cannot fully destroy the agent, you can temporarily defeat
one until it moves into another body. This would seem impossible, but there is a
way. Going back to the point where you climb up the ladder and the agent first
drops down, instead of waiting for the agent to land, climb up the ladder.
Before you even see the agent, start running and use your Focus to jump to the
platform where the agent lands. Still holding Focus, move behind his position
where he lands. Begin to kick him, and as he is off guard, he is very unlikely
to counter. If you kick him enough, you should be able to knock him off the edge
of the "platform" and down the gap, causing the agent to plummet to his death.
Thus, you have temporarily defeated an agent. Note: If you should ever face
Agent Smith, you would be wise not to underestimate him, he is the most skilled
Spark's Training Construct
You start in a hallway full of doors. The doors never end. To find Spark's
Training Construct go to the second red door you see on your right. Walk until
you past the first red door, then you will see another red door Enter it. The
other doors do not open.
Chat with Spark
If you activated the "TRINITY" folder, type HANDSHAKE.EXE and press Enter. You
will see a message from Spark. Type anything and press Enter. He will say that
you sent him a file to download with a trojan virus. He will then say that he
was playing. He will tell you something about you having access to his computer.
Access the "DIR: folder and go to "LOGOS:". Go to your command list and
select "EMP: in what he gave you. He will say that he was just kidding and will
give you a gift in the loading screen. When he is done, you will hear a message
from Neo. He will then say goodbye and shutdown the computer for you.
Defeating Agent Smith
It is possible to take down Agent Smith without a wall kick, even if
temporarily. First, scoot back so he does not throw you, then equip any gun and
fire. At the same time, go into Focus and while he is dodging the bullets you
just fired, run in then punch or kick him until he goes down. Kicks are
recommended because they are more powerful. Then, get out of there while still
using Focus. When you are out of harms way, let off the Focus. Note: Doing this
in cramped spaces such as hallways is not recommended unless absolutely
Approach a Powerade vending machine and press Action near the buttons on the
machine. A Powerade will pop out.
Successfully complete the game under any difficulty setting. The ending sequence
