  1. Listed bros... You MUST swap and reverse ALL top trigger keys. So if a code says use L2, your really use L1 and so on and so forth. (May 2019)

    1. This has been fixed, everyone please use the combinations as they are listed now. Thanks!

  2. I bought the game on the playstation store and none of the cheats work and im pisssed off! Can someone please explain

    1. Swap the L2 to L1 and R2 to R2 so when doing the cheat you do the opposite of what it says so if a cheat involves L2 you click L1

      1. This has been fixed, everyone please use the combinations as they are listed now. Thanks!
