ROTT cheat codes

General Information
Warning: Usage of some of these cheat codes will disable achievements.

However, the level select cheat is required to unlock all achievements, as some levels are warp-only and they can only be accessed through the usage of this menu. Upon loading a warp-only level, an achievement will trigger.

To earn both warp-only achievements, enable cheats, use the level select cheat and browse to the "This Causes an Error!" map.

To verify whether a cheat has disabled achievements, open the console by pressing the tilde key and look for the message "Cheats have been enabled, all achievements will be disabled." on the log.

These will also work in the original ROTT. I have tested each code on Ludicrous Edition and separated those that did not trigger for me when input under the "Removed codes" section. Any codes that were input manually once will be accessible in the game's options menu for later use under "Unlocked cheat codes".

As a reminder, the slash codes such as \EKG MUST be input with the backslash or they will not work. If you have any questions I will be happy to answer them, and all feedback is welcomed.

\FUN seems to mark as working as of now, the game says it unlocks "Rotation."

Ah I see, thanks @Dr. Dro

@Lucas You still take damage but your health never goes below 1, which means you cannot die from being shot or other normal attacks

Say, does anyone know what demigod mode does? Haven't noticed anything different when using it...

@The Comedian I cannot get it to trigger, but I will mark it as "might work"
Qiqi and the Cocogoat ඞ  [author] Aug 10, 2023 @ 8:02am 
It does? I believe the game was patched, they must have fixed it. It wasn't triggering on v1.00. I will give it another try in a bit
The Comedian Aug 10, 2023 @ 4:19am 
hello. \FUN still works. thanks

Alright I have updated the guide and also tested those codes on the original version and they do not work, so they must be ROTT: LE exclusive
