Cheats for Streets of Rage 2

Hint: Do a lot of damage

  • All platforms
  • code
If you can make the Claw Boss (first appears in round two) block the max secondary special attack (Toward + A, in the standard configuration), you can take a lot of enemy life.

Hint: Axel: Continuous combo

  • All platforms
  • code
Start a normal game with Axel. When you encounter an enemy, press B only once, wait about half a second, then press B again. It takes some practice, but once you get the timing correct, you will be able to kill all enemies and most Bosses with one combo. Note: Some Bosses will attack out of the combo sequence, and other enemies may try to surround you while you attack.

Hint: Max: Slam

  • All platforms
  • code
Play as Max, then try to hold somebody. Press C (the person might fall off) and while you are in the air, immediately press B to do a slam. If you hold the person backwards and do it, it will be more effective because he slams the person on the knee.

Hint: Surviving throws

  • All platforms
  • code
When you are thrown by an enemy, hold Up and hold C (Jump) to land safely. Note: You will not land safely when you are flung off an edge --you will still take damage.

Reveal cheat menu code

  • All platforms
  • code
Successfully complete the game under the hardest difficulty. The game will reveal the cheat code during the last picture of the ending credits.

Hint: Stage 6: Kill one Boss only

  • All platforms
  • code
In stage 6, with the 2 bosses, defeat Souther (the Boss with claws) and Stealth (the other Boss) will die as well.

Cheat mode

  • All platforms
  • code
Highlight the "Options" selection at the main menu, then hold A + B on controller two, then hold any button (but not the D-pad) on controller one. Keep all buttons held until additional options that allow level selection, new difficulty levels (Mania and Very Easy), and increasing number of lives up to nine appear.

Two players as same character

  • All platforms
  • code
Hold Down/Right + B on controller one and Left + A on controller two at the title screen. Press C on controller two while all buttons are held. Select two player mode and choose the same character. Note: Both characters will appear identical.
