Enter the following commands:
- DIR LOGOS:
- DIR V:
- DIR RAM:
- Passcode 8ram
- 3 digit code 942
- Passcode THISISNOTREAL
- Passcode FROZENFISH
- DIR V:
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. Note: Click here to view both the red and blue Chinese character puzzle solutions. 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 001-949-555-0101. You should get a message from Persephone. Next dial 001-310-555-0111. 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 appear when fighting enemies by pressing Punch + Kick. If you press Action when approaching an enemy (as if you were going to disarm them). Instead of doing your disarm move, you will take out the sword and slice them up, killing them instantly. Note: You also 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.
Go into the Hacking option and type "DIR". This will bring up a list (System.exe, Tools.exe, etc.). Under system, login as "GUEST". This will bring up the B directory. Go to tools under B's directory and it will ask for a five digit binary code. Note: This code is random each time. Enter the correct code to access more options such as "DECODE.EXE", "PLAY.EXE", and "VIEW.EXE".
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 [name of executable].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.
To access multi-player mode, follow the steps used to get the sword. However, instead go to the SPARKS folder and have a chat with him. Activate "HANDSHAKE.EXE". When he asks what program you sent him, say "HANDSHAKE". Then, wait until he is done talking. He will then upload Multi-player to you. Access it by going to "Load" and choosing the level just before the first one.
When entering multi-player mode, you do not get to choose which character(s) you would like to fight as. Instead, the Matrix selects two pre-set opponents depending on which scenario/background you choose. Note: Much like Morpheus vs. Neo in The Matrix, multi-player mode is essentially a training ground to hone your standard skills. Focus is unavailable for use in the Multi-player program. There is no background music to accompany these battles. Below is the list of backgrounds/environments that are used in the single player game itself, and the characters the CPU will select upon choosing a certain background:
- The Pit - Player 1: Seraph, Player 2: Ballard
- The Ballroom - Player 1: Niobe, Player 2: Ghost
- The Bedroom - Player 1: Cujo, Player 2: Vlad
- The Atrium - Player 1: Sewing Woman, Player 2: Janitor
- The Alley - Player 1: Firebird Man, Player 2: Police Car Man
- The Ballroom - Player 1: Niobe, Player 2: Ghost
There are also two other levels which are famous areas from The Matrix film, which can only be found in multi-player mode:
- The Dojo - Player 1: Niobe, Player 2: Trinity
- The Subway - Player 1: Morpheus, Player 2: Agent Smith
Every highway sign you see in The Matrix: Reloaded is a cheat for the game, Enter The Matrix.
When using various cheats, including "Infinite Health", "Infinite Focus", "Infinite 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.
As Ghost, when you have to fight the man to see the oracle, you are supposed to lose. After you complete the game, go back and load that level. You can defeat him to get an alternate game ending.
Successfully complete the game on any difficulty setting. The ending sequence includes what appears to be a trailer for The Matrix: Revolution, the sequel to The Matrix: Reloaded.
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. Once inside the "shooting range," you can participate in a test of skills. Press the red button and get ready. You will start out behind one of the tables and are told that you are caged in and have to fight. SWAT agents will start running from the back of the room in your area. If they get up to the 10 ft. mark, youwill lose. Turn around, grab all the guns you can, and take them out. If you get more than twenty, it unlocks the other red door in the hallway. This is where you can engage in hand to hand combat with a never-ending supply of SWAT. This a very good opportunity to harness your fighting skills and find new moves.
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.
Get a gun (preferably a machine gun) and switch to first person view. Shoot and you will see that the bullets appear in a perfectly straight line, no matter what the weapon. This is extremely useful and works with any gun.
When you are in a close area, Focus and do a wall run. Then, press Jump and move your character to the other wall. Next, do another wall run then press Jump. You should still be in Matrix mode. If done correctly, you will be able to dodge a lot of bullets.
When doing a wall flip in Matrix mode, press Jump to do a longer flip. Note: You will not be able to fire your weapons while doing this. Be careful, and try not to use it around a lot of enemies.
Press Focus while you are close to a wall. If done correctly, this should make your character run against the wall, then eventually do a cartwheel off it.
Approach a Powerade vending machine and press Action near the buttons on the machine. A Powerade will pop out.
Allow the game to idle at the main menu. It will eventually play the preview trailer that was used to promote the game through the website.
You may have trouble grabbing the flashlightm which is actually a MP5 icon. To get it, take out your MP5 and waste its ammunition so that the gun is no longer in the inventory. The same goes for MP5 pistols. Once this is done, you can pick up the flashlight/MP5. Equip it to turn on the flashlight.
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.
When 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.
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 agent.
Let him strike first, and stay defensive. After this, lay it on him then back off and repeat.
Take out any gun, go into Focus mode, then run and jump while shooting. When in Focus, your aim improves and the run and jump will help you dodge bullets.
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 necessary.
