    Secret Level

    After you beat D.O.D (Dead On Arrival) you get to go to The Secret Level which you have about 50 or so Dudes coming at you, this level runs in slow mode but you can still use the Super slow as even though is already slow you will definitely need it if you want to win! 1st p/up all the ammo as you go forth then to the right more hard dudes coming your way (more than on the left so is much more fun) pace from side to side and run around the square things as they come from both directions, it's absolutely insane this level but quite a piss weak ending as all it says is WELL DONE so anyway ensure to remember going from side to side is very effective and you really have to use Suuuper Sloooow Mode!!!
    P.S If you keep going towards the other end you'll see a pic of the crew (who made the game I think?) and a bit further the logo spinning and that's it folks enjoy this brutal slaughter it's quite hard

    Floating Shells

    This is more of a fun thing to do than a code. During game play get out a fast firing weapon (perfered) or any gun that shoots. Then shot it rapidly so that the shells are in the air while they are still in the air pause the game and select save. Then either get killed or quit the game. When you select to go back to the point where you saved the game last the shells will be floating in mid air!

    How to Have A Lot of Clips Everywhere

    When u get rid of some bullets u can have a lot of clips on the floor. What u do is that if u see a tv, sink, etc then get rid of bullets, then u go over 2 it, then u reload. Right when u are going to about 2 reload do the action that u want 2 do, then u keep doing it over & over & over until u want 2 quit.

    Beating the game at the end

    This isn't a code. If you are stuck like i was at the end of the game when you are facing the helicopter, then this is what you do. First go outside. Then shoot the wire off of the things that extend out on the corners. You only have to take off two wires. If there isn't a wire, then don't bother shooting at it. Once you have the wires off, shoot with a gun (i used the commando) at the large thing in the middle. Once you shoot it a couple of times, then a cut scene appears and it falls on the helicopter. After that, the game is over.

    Beating the game

    Instead of doing what the guy said before in his way use the sniper rifle to shoot the cords which make the tower in the middle weak and then use the grenade launcher to shoot the tower. Which makes it fall over on the helicopter.You must do this before the helicopter piliot gets to zero on his countdown in which if you don't you wil have to repeat the part of the level again.

    Hidden Room -Part 2 Chapter 2

    On the first crane you come to, the cab door is open. Jump from the top of the door to the top of the cab. Then carefully jump onto the crane arm and walk up it to about the mid point. There are some large crates to the left of the arm. Align your sight with the left side of the crates and, after brandishing a gun, shootdodge forward. Max should land safely on the concrete ledge. On the left end is a room with grenades and some ammo. Be sure to utilize the crate along the ledge when jumping down.

    Make the Cops Mad

    This is not really a code, but it is something fun to do. When your at Lupino's hotel when you walk along the ridge to the room where Max says, "I don't want to know what happened here it was not pretty sight" get all the crap in the room then go walk on the ridge and get a gun (personally I use the Desert Eagle) and shoot the cop car when it comes and the NYPD in the car get so angry that they honk at you!

    Ingram Fun

    This code is mainly for people who want to mess around on the tutorial, But first you need to follow the tutorial up until you pick up a sniper rifle from the second van, get on top of the van and jump to the fan on the wall beside it, from there you can jump to the staircase and go up all of the flights, there you break the window and jump inside, inside you can find an Ingram and lots of ammo, from there, Just have fun with it!

    Gangster Rats

    Ok this is not a cheat but it is really funny. When you are in Rosco Street Station go through the level like you normally would until you get to the old part of the station. There should be a hole in the wall across from where you start throw a grenade in the hole. Then keep going threw the level until you reach the platform were three guys should be. Kill them and go up the ramp and there will be rats on the ground go stand by the brick wall in the center of the room and stay there for a few seconds the rats should pull out guns and start attacking you. And when you kill them they die in slow motion it is very funny.

Max Payne Glitches

  • PC | Submitted by Nasir

    Unlimited Clips (Glitch)

    You can do the glitch with the dual Ingrams and Berettas! Just reload the weapon and as soon as the clips are in the air jump. You'll land and be able to reload once more, this has no advantage whatsoever to the game but it's worth mentioning! Just looks kind of cool having so many clips on the ground.
