Cheats for Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2

Glitch: Enter Vans secret area

  • PC
  • code
When in either in Plywood Paradise (the second competition invite) or Philadelphia, enable the "Flight mode" code. In Plywood Paradise, fly slightly left of the starting point towards the fence, then crash into the upper left corner. When upside down, keep holding Y and press Up. You will float through the fence and end up on the other side in the vans secret area.

Glitch: Fall into space

  • PC
  • code
Begin game play on the Skate Heaven level. Go to the place where there are a lot of benches. Grind on one to three of them. Jump off the last one you grinded on. If done correctly, you should fall into space -- it will be like there is a floor there. Note: Use the "Double moon physics" code to get out.

Glitch: Invisible water level

  • PC
  • code
Enable the "Flight mode" code. Go to Philadelphia and hover in the fountain so that you are "swimming" in it. Then, fall into it. Do this again without falling into it. Note: This takes some practice, patience and, luck. When you ride, there will be an invisible water level that you can go in. You will even see water dripping off your character.

Glitch: Trapped in School 2

  • PC
  • code
In the School 2 level, go in the gym where the basketball nets are located. Next to the "Three Points!" gap is a closed blue door. Ollie into the corner and hold Grind to grind through the wall, into the wall, next to the Gonz rail. If you keep grinding, you will hit into the wall and bail. If you Ollie off the wall, you can keep doing spins until you are forced to retry.

Hint: Recommended stat development

  • PC
  • code
Build up stats in the following order, especially for vert skaters: Air, Hangtime, Rail Balance, Speed, Ollie, Switch, Spin, Landing, Manual Balance, and Lip Balance.

Hint: New wipeouts

  • PC
  • code
The following wipeouts were added since the original Tony Hawk's Pro Skater.

Glitch: Half of level missing

  • PC
  • code
Select a level such as New York or Philadelphia and enable the "Flight mode" code. Fly as high as possible and half of the level will turn blue. Go back down and you will not be able to go into that part unless you grind into it. For example, in New York you can go into it using the subway rails.

Hint: Strange Frontflips

  • PC
  • code
Get a skater with the Frontflip. Start skating on a halfpipe/pool and perform the trick before you ollie and hold R + Spin.

Hint: Easy specials

  • PC
  • code
Go into career mode and go to buy tricks. Enter specials and delete where the special is currently under. Then, put it under an easy slot that you will remember. For example, for all three of your free specials, put them under Up, Down and X, Y, or B. You can do this free of charge.

Hint: Special moves

  • PC
  • code
All of the following moves are performed when your character's special meter is flashing yellow:
