Note: The Cheat Weapons Crate can also be unlocked with the "All shop items" code.

  • Playground Of Destruction mode

    Successfully complete the game, then verify General Song (the Ace of Spades). Save the game when prompted. Load that saved game to start the game again with all money and support items previously collected.

  • Alternate costumes

    After you have captured or killed the Ace of Diamonds, you will be sent to the northern MASH. There should be a tent by the man who takes you between the north and southern areas. Once you find it, your character will be able to switch costumes.

  • Free ammunition and repairs

    Choose a mission. Park a damaged vehicle in the base where the mission is located, accept the contract, then immediately cancel it. Select "No" at the "Retry" menu. Your vehicle will be repaired with full ammunition at no cost. Additionally, enter a factions building, then exit. You and your vehicle's health will be replenished, and you will have full ammunition.

  • Free Medivac

    To skip out on paying the $10,000 when you warp to the Medivac, save the game. Load the game and you will appear at the Medivac, but not have to pay the $10,000.

  • Free supply drops

    Select the item you want dropped, then throw the smoke grenade. Before the grenade hits the ground, press Select or D-pad Right and select a different supply drop. You will get the original supply drop for free. Note: This works for cars, supplies, and some air strikes. It does not work for laser guided airstrikes.

  • Safe number card capture

    Use the following trick to get a number card captured for the full bounty and avoid losing money from Anti-Air Armor shooting down your vehicle or an enemy tank accidentally killing your target. Do an aerial recon, Get a N.K Scout helicopter and get disguised as a N.K. Fly over the area that the number card is located to do recon on where the Anti-Air Armor, enemy tanks, and APCs are located. Once you noted where they are, you can now execute your plan by taking out the Anti-Air first, then the enemy tanks and APCs. Be careful with rockets -- do not fire too close to the number card. Land in a safe place, take down the number card, and call for extraction.

  • KA-50 attack helicopter

    This is very hard to find helicopter in the game. Get to the part when you can start capturing the Spades. Do Mafia missions until you get to the mission where you must kill the brigade officers. Go the officer northeast of Mafia HQ. Right beside him is the helicopter, flying low or landed. If it is flying, simply use an anti armor rifle and shoot the pilot. This helicopter has one less weapon than the YAH-56 Gunship. It has a 30mm cannon, dumb rockets, and anti tank rockets, and is a lightweight helicopter.

  • YAH-56 Gunship

    The YAH-56 Gunship is the most powerful helicopter in the game; it is armed with rapid-fire 30mm cannon (grenade launcher), anti-air missiles, anti-tank missiles, and dumb-fire rockets. You must have an anti-armor rifle and a RPG or anti tank rocket. Grenades work somewhat, but are not recommended. You cannot use an anti air. Find one flying (try the North Korean Allied MASH, when you complete the second ACE contract you will "unlock" this). Once you are there, find a YAH-56 Gunship with the binoculars. Then, go to it and make sure it is over flat land. Take out your RPG or your anti tank rocket and shoot above it. It will fly down slightly. Then, take out your anti armor rifle and shoot the pilot (located the back seat of the helicopter). If you cannot see him through the glass, shoot under the cockpit. Once he is dead, you will have about $25, 000 depleted and your helicopter should land on the ground safely. Try again if it falls on its side or something else happens. Do not be afraid of the tail rotor. If it is half way in a rock, it does not effect it. Note: This strategy can be used with any helicopter.

    To get the YAH-56 Gunship easier, get a standard sniper rifle and shoot the bottom. If this does not kill the pilot, the chopper will lower somewhat. Walk in front of the chopper, then shoot the front seat and the pilot will die.

    To find a YAH-56 Gunship, go to the second province, then go to the Mafia garage. To the left of the front of the garage is a challenge marked with the "$" symbol. Take the challenge, but instead of flying to the goal, do some recon and learn where all the A.T.A. missile launchers are and destroy them in any way possible. Next, fly to the nuclear power plant. Instead of taking out all the people, fly to the gunship and take it. You now have your own flying tank. Note: If you lose your disguise, North Koreans will get in your gunship, start shooting at you, and force you to blow it up.

  • Faster shooting with the YAH-56 Gunship

    This trick woks with any vehicle that has multiple weapons. While holding R1 to shoot, press R2 rapidly to change weapons. The faster you change weapons, the faster you will shoot.

  • Helicopter winch

    Pick up a fully packed car and take it to the fight for more firepower. The soldier in the turret will shoot on or off the winch at any enemies that he sees. Try using the YAH-56 Gunship and the Mafia Technical (GL) Delivery for this. Additionally, use the winch to pick up some C4. You can now drop it off or throw it anywhere desired, then fly to a save location to detonate it. However, you cannot fly too far away from it.

    Take a powerful helicopter, such as the Allies UH-60. Find any car or object that is metal. Drop down the winch and pick up the car. This might require a few attempts. When you have the car on your magnet, you can drop it on the roof of something and watch it drive off; or go as high as possible, drop the car, and try beating it to the ground.

  • Helicopter on Ace Contracts

    Note: This trick requires a sniper rifle is required. Immediately after you are dropped off, take out your sniper rifle and shoot the pilot of the helicopter that dropped you off. If done at the correct moment, the helicopter will fall with barely any damage done to it. Note: This is easier with the "Infinite health" and "All factions neutral" cheats enabled. If you do not have a sniper rifle, call in for one and shoot the pilot of that helicopter. Successfully complete all the steps and it should work.

  • Ride in helicopter

    You can ride in a helicopter such as a UH 60 or any other helicopter that has guns that you can man. First, get a UH 60 then get about three South Korean ROKA soldiers. These are the only ones that will fly the helicopter. Get them all in the helicopter then fly to some enemies. Get out and get on a gun. Usually one of the soldiers will get in and fly the helicopter. You can now ride and shoot down on the enemies. Note: Once in the air you will not be able to get out unless your helicopter is shot downm or you somehow land and hit the ground. Also, this only works in the North province.

  • Fun with helicopters

    Enable the "Infinite health" code, then purchase a North Korean helicopter or a Mafia Scout helicopter. Then, go to any Allied MASH. Go above the helicopters and repeatedly slam into them until they explode. You will not lose any faction points for the Allies.

  • Fly NK helicopters

    In many parts of the map, NK forces have helicopters stashed without pilots that you can climb into and fly. The hills surrounding the helicopters however, have A.A. tanks that cannot be reached by foot or vehicle. As soon as you try to take off, the helicopters get destroyed. To get around this, fly very low. As soon as you enter the helicopter, you can see the A.A. tanks on your map. Stay low enough to keep out of their range. If the symbol for the A.A. tanks starts flashing, drop the helicopter immediately until the blades stop. Continue this until you either fly off successfully with the helicopter, or you die.

    In the northern province (the second province), go to the city where the Russian Mafia is located. Next to the garage where you can sell cars, there will be a Russian challenge for money (marked by a "$" on the map). Talk to him and he will give you the challenge of dropping NK jeeps into a nuclear power plant. Say "Yes", and you will be teleported up to the top of the building, which now has a NK transport helicopter on it. You can get in and just fly away without doing the challenge. Also, if you want to cancel the challenge there but keep the helicopter, just get in, get out, and get in again. Getting out will cancel the challenge. This is useful, as it is a short drive from the MASH where you start and can be used to pick up NK vehicles (while they are occupied) and drop them where they will not be a problem (especially if they are near a member of the Deck of 52).

  • Flying cars

    Get any helicopter and lower the winch and put it on a car (civilian cars recommended). You can fly it almost anywhere, toss it in the water, or crash it into a building.

  • Destroying tanks

    When you are being shot at by a tank, strafe left and right in front of it, while your anti-tank missile is locking on to the tank. Then, fire until the tank has been destroyed. The tank will not be able to fire at you while you are doing this. However, be careful; when you stop it will get a direct hit on you.

  • Accelerate faster

    While in a car, hold R1 + Square + X to do a burnout and accelerate faster.

  • Drive a flaming vehicle

    Enable the "Infinite health" code and shoot the vehicle until it starts to burn. Jump in and drive off. Alternately, get into the car and drive it into something until its health gets under 20. As soon as this happens, press Select and enable the "Infinite health" code. Note: This trick does not work on helicopters. They will only bounce around on the ground when you try to take off.

  • Double car bomb

    Put a some C4 on the hood of your car, before you do the "Drive a flaming vehicle" trick. Find something to drive your flaming car into (gates, towers, enemies, cars, etc.). Press L1 to jump out of the car while it is moving. Wait until it explodes from the flames, then detonate the C4.

  • Huge explosions

    In the second province, find Sinuiji Harbor. One of the buildings in the far left has seven explosive barrels all stacked. Not too far from them are a lot more explosives. Move as many explosives as desired to the original stack and shoot it to make a huge explosion.

    In the first province at Ichon, there are a few sets of nukes underground. Get in a helicopter and shoot a couple of missiles to blow them up and see a huge shockwave. Note: You must first complete the mission where you must blow up the nukes on top of them.

  • Easy money

    Hijack some cars from the North Koreans and line them up so that they are all close together. The bigger they are, the more money you will get. For example, line up a group of Sungri Scouts. Take a C4 charge on the car that is in the middle. Blow it up and a chain reaction will blow up all the cars and give you a major cash boost. You can also steal cars and sell them to the Mafia at their garage by Mafia HQ. Each car is worth a different amount of money.

    Use the "Fly NK helicopters" trick to get a free helicopter from the Russian Mafia by the garage where you can sell cars. Look on the map and there will be a "$" icon just east of the Allied Nation headquarters (not the MASH, where you receive AN missions from). Fly there to find a burning wreck of a AN Hummer. Land so that you can quickly jump back into the helicopter. Walk up the wreck and press Triangle when it says "Examine". It will give you the challenge of moving the wreck over 100 meters in thirty seconds without explosives. Take careful note of the distance that it says. Accept and quickly jump back in the helicopter. Use the winch (or grapple) to latch onto the wreck. Then, fly the wreck so that it is only a few meters past what the distance goal was. Wait for time to run out. The next time you go back, it will ask you to beat your own distance. As long as you stayed close to the distance goal, it will be extremely easy to accomplish this with the helicopter. Repeat the trick to get around $40,000 each time.

  • Saving ammunition

    Do not waste ammunition. Some missions involve blowing up artillery, or just have artillery in the area. Instead of blowing it up, you can kill the man inside and use the artillery yourself. This can save you from running around to each individual artillery cannon, as you can shoot them from a distance.

  • Recommended weapons

    The best weapons in the game are the Anti-Armor Sniper Rifle, Prototype Rifle, Street Sweeper, Pocket Artillery, and Portable Airstrike. For the Prototype Rifle and Anti-Armor Rifle, you must have at least 40 Blueprints. To get the Street Sweeper, Pocket Artillery, and Portable Airstrike, you must successfully complete the game. The Anti-Armor Rifle is a super-powered sniper rifle. The Prototype Rifle is accurate, moderately powerful, has a scope, and has up to 300 shots. The Street Sweeper has up to 6,000 rounds and is as powerful as the MD-530 machine gun. Pocket Artillery is a SMG-sized grenade launcher. The Portable Airstrike is the size of an anti-tank gun and has hundreds of missiles that lock on to all military vehicles.

  • Alarms

    Blow up the alarm. If the enemies sound the alarm, do not run up to the alarm to turn it off. Just blow it up. They already know that you are there.

  • Floating gun

    On your first Mafia mission, when you go into the headquarters and you are about to do the contract, accept it before he is done talking (but not too early). You may have to save the game and repeat this a few times before it works. If you accept the contract at the correct moment, the Boss will wave his gun around; but if you accept it, his arm will not move and only the gun will float.

  • Stuck helicopters and cars

    Do not worry about helicopter glitches. Sometimes your evac helicopter will get stuck in the ground out or diagonal on a tree. Just hit it into place with a melee attack. The same thing works for tipping most cars back onto their wheels.

  • The Godfather reference

    When you do the Mafia mission "Playing The Odds", you will walk into Mafia HQ and hear Sergei and Josef talking. Eventually Sergei will mention Marlon Brando and The Godfather movie.

  • Godzilla reference

    After you capture or kill the Ace Of Hearts (Chul Kang), look at the news briefs scrolling across the bottom of the screen during the news broadcast. It will eventually say "Tokyo, Japan: Scientists investigate huge, mysterious footprints that have appeared along the coasts."

  • Star Wars reference

    After capturing or killing the Ace Of Clubs, pay attention to the scrolling text at the bottom of the newscast. It is easier to see if you have the subtitles turned off. Eventually the text will read "Tipoca City: clones cloned." This refers to Pandemics Star Wars games, Clone Wars, and the Kamino level of Battlefront. Additionally, when you go to the South Korean base to accept the first South Korean mission from Buford, after he explains the mission, you can leave, accept it, or wait. If you wait, Buford will say he has a plane that is as powerful as a "Star Destroyer" in that "space movie". Also, after you capture or verify the Ace of any suit, you will see a news story. Watch the bottom of the screen. The scrolling text will eventually have a Star Wars reference, such as after the Ace of Diamonds "Coriscant, Lawsuit filed over space station's faulty exhaust system".
