The big PS5 exclusive of the moment, Returnal, has more than a few secrets within its dangerous world, but some have been locked away deeper. Here’s how to cheat in Returnal.
Returnal on PS5 has some cheats, though they’re not the traditional kind that you unlock by smashing a few buttons on your gamepad. Instead, these are development tools left in the game by the game’s creator, so you’ll need a keyboard connected to your PS5 in order to access the cheats. Here’s how to do it:
- Make sure your keyboard is connected to your PS5
- Drop weapons: hold down Shift, Control, and Alt, then press the numbers 1 through to 0 to drop different weapons. When you die, you’ll be able to respawn with your favourite weapon.
- Ship respawn with all gear and stats: hold down Shift and Ctrl, then press 4 – Do NOT use this after Biome 3 or during Biome 4 as this will essentially reset your game back to Biome 1 with no way to return.
And there you have it, some next-gen cheating. They’re not traditional so they may be patched out of the game in a future update to stop players from exploiting the game, or to protect players from unexpected events – these “cheats” could cause issues with the game, so use them at your own risk.
