In the Hacking engine, instead of using "GUEST", you can LOGIN as "FREEMIND" or "COWBOYCURTIS". The system asks if you would like to hear a message from Morpheus. If you accept, it will tell you to press a number from 1 to 5. There are five messages to hear.
Enter the following commands:
3 digit code "942
To unlock the swordfight, follow these steps. Open the Hacking program from the main menu. Open a file that has the game completed. Note: You must have completed the game first in order for this cheat to work; and the game file you select at the Hacking menu must have the game completed. Type "LOGIN" and press Enter. Type "GUEST" and press Enter. Type "DIR", then a space. DIR should now appear in your command list. Access the B Drive through the "DIR" command. Select TOOLS from the B Drive. It will be locked and will ask you for an access code. The access code consists of 1s and 0s. You must guess the access code, as it is different each time. It is only five digits long. Once you have access to the TOOLS on the B Drive, type all the .EXE files (without the .EXE after them). For example, type "DECODE" then a space. DECODE will now appear in the command list. Repeat this for all other .EXE files in the TOOLS folder in the B Drive. Now, access VIRTUAL on your command list. Type in "FROZENFISH" as the password. An authentication test will start. An image of a Chinese symbol will appear, but it will be scrambled. The image is broken into 9 squares, and each square will have five different choices. You must change all the pieces so that a complete image appears. You have a limited amount of time to do this. Once you guess a correct image, the timer will stop and you will be taken back to the hacking screen. Look at the top of the screen. If it says "Solution: Blue", then the line will be traced and you will have to enter "TRACEKILL" and then press enter as fast as possible or all progress will be lost. Once you enter TRACEKILL, you will have to start back at accessing VIRTUAL on your command list. However, if it says "Solution: Red", then you will hear a message from Neo and get access to the V Drive. Open the V Drive and get all the commands from the TOOLS folder on your command list. Open the ROOTSEARCH program. Now, open the ROOT folder in the B Drive and get the two commands there on your command list. Enter the MAIL command and type "THISISNOTREAL" as the password and type "YES". You will get a list of phone numbers:
Select the DIAL command and dial "001949555010". You should get a message from Persephone. Next dial "0013105550111". You will get you a message from Trinity. She will give you a number. Select PORTKEY and enter the number. She will start to talk to you. Type "NO" to both questions and she will give you a program called CRACK on your command list. Open it, then type "8RAM". It should look like this: "CRACK 8RAM". You now have access to the RAM drive. Go to DIR on your command list and access the RAM drive. A list of folder names will appear. Open the TRINITY folder. Get the Training command on your DIR by typing "TRAINING" then a space. Go to your command list and select TRAINING. On you command list, a file called SWORD.DSK will come up. Select it. It has now uploaded the sword onto you character in the Matrix. Quit the hacking program and select "Save Progress". You can use the sword when you start that game file. It can be used in any stage, but will only a[[ear when fighting enemies by pressing [Punch] + [Kick]. You have to enter it again when you turn off the game. Go to the Hacking program, select that file again, select TRAINING, then SWORD.DSK.
Note: The game must be completed first as both Niobe and Ghost in order to unlock the swordfight.
If you complete the blue combination for the virtual command, it will hack your system. Once you complete the blue version, Neo says that if he can track you, so can they. A countdown from 1000 begins, and your command list freezes. The total countdown takes less than twenty seconds, and when it finishes, all of your commands are gone and you have to start again.
Once you unlock the sword, instead of pressing "[Punch]" + "[Kick]", press "[Action]" when approaching an enemy (as if you were going to disarm them). Instead of doing your disarm move, you will take out the sword and slice them up, killing them instantly.
After you have won the game on a file, complete the process of unlocking the sword. Once done, if you open another file you can use the sword in that file.
To access multi-player mode, follow the steps used to get the sword. However, instead go to the SPARKS folder and have a chat with him. Activate "HANDSHAKE.EXE". When he asks what program you sent him, say "HANDSHAKE". Then, wait until he is done talking. He will then upload Multi-player to you. Access it by going to "Load" and choosing the level just before the first one.
Multi-player mode character selections
When entering multi-player mode, you do not get to choose which character(s) you would like to fight as. Instead, the Matrix selects two pre-set opponents depending on which scenario/background you choose. Note: Much like Morpheus vs. Neo in The Matrix, multi-player mode is essentially a training ground to hone your standard skills. Focus is unavailable for use in the Multiplayer program. You must have two Dual Shock 2 controllers, as the original Dual Shock analog controller does not work. There is no background music to accompany these battles. Below is the list of backgrounds/environments that are used in the single player game itself, and the characters the CPU will select upon choosing a certain background:
The Pit - Player 1: Seraph, Player 2: Ballard
The Ballroom - Player 1: Niobe, Player 2: Ghost
The Bedroom - Player 1: Cujo, Player 2: Vlad
The Atrium - Player 1: Sewing Woman, Player 2: Janitor
The Alley - Player 1: Firebird Man, Player 2: Police Car Man
There are also two other levels which are famous areas from The Matrix film, which can only be found in multi-player mode:
The Dojo - Player 1: Niobe, Player 2: Trinity
The Subway - Player 1: Morpheus, Player 2: Agent Smith
Neo and Morpheus views
Note: The following will not unlock Neo and Morpheus as playable characters, regardless what the messages that appear state. In the Hacking mode, after unlocking the DECODE.EXE program, type "DECODE IAHSZWQLFZC". The following message will appear:
"Valid code found.
You will also hear Morpheus say "You have access." Morpheus and Neo are now viewable in the "view" section of Hacking mode, where you can get the stats and pictures of various characters in the game.
If you type "DECODE DBIUHU7XDTSMZYO", the following message will appear:
"Valid code found.
You will also hear Morpheus say "You have access." Even more characters are now viewable, such as the Merovingian and Bane.
Go into the Hacking option and type "DIR". This will bring up a list (System.exe, Tools.exe, etc.). Under system, login as "GUEST". This will bring up the B directory. Go to tools under B's directory and it will ask for a five digit binary code. Note: This code is random each time. Enter the correct code (such as "11001" or "10011" ) to access more options such as "DECODE.EXE", "PLAY.EXE", and "VIEW.EXE".
The list of possible binary codes is as follows:
Hack into The Matrix
Once you have saved, you can select the Hacking option and begin to work on hacking into The Matrix itself. As the Matrix is quite simply a simulation, its rules are no different to a computer systems. This allows you to not only access all stored files, but you can change the physical laws of the system (as mentioned in the "cheat" descriptions) Laws like gravity can be bent, for a greater time/effect than the limited focusing alone. To take advantage of the Hack System's abilities, you will need to know exactly what to enter following the command prompt (default A Drive standard (A:\)): Enter "DIR" to display directory choices. You can simply type <name of executable> ".EXE" then press Enter. The executable will be opened. It is not the same with .TXT files, as you must type "READ" first before the text file selection is revealed in Command List. Simply type "DIR" then a space followed by B:\ for the contents of the B Drive to be revealed for selection, rather than typing individual filenames. After experiencing the rabbit hole for yourself, the "CHEAT.EXE" is invaluable for those with free minds looking to further enhance skills, and bend the rules of The Matrix. After opening the executable, you will be required to enter specific codes, which will directly alter rules of The Matrix, making it easier for you to utilize your ability to focus the mind, and other aspects. Use it wisely.
For an easy way to unlock cheat mode, at title screen select "Hack". Press any key when instructed. Once the system has loaded, type "DIR". You will eventually see various choices. One of these choices will be "TOOLS". Instead of typing it in, go all the way to the left where your options are "HELP and DIR". Click "DIR", then you will see the same choices on the screen above. Click on "TOOLS". From there you will see more choices "CHEAT.EXE" and so on. Click "CHEAT.EXE" and enter in any the codes.
Also, you do not have to enter "Yes" or "No" for command confirmations. You can simply type [Y] or [N] to save time.
Finding cheat codes
Every highway sign you see in the highway level is a cheat for the game.
Look on the billboards in the game on the freeway.
When the "Unlimited Focus", "Unlimited Health", "Unlimited Ammunition", and "Maximum Firepower" are enabled at the same time, the game places a grenade or bomb immediately where you begin the level (only on some levels). It does not kill you, but will knock you for a loop. For example, on the "Agent On Board" level, you start out besides Axel. If one of those cheats are enabled, the bomb will blow up Axel and you will die, ending the game. You must play this level without cheats in order to complete it. The way to get away from the bomb is run before it explodes.
Enabling cheats can also cause other undesirable effects in the game. For example, when fighting Agent on Board and trying to knock him off the plane, he will carry an MP5 instead of being unarmed.
When using codes such as "Unlimited Health and "Unlimited Ammunition" on the Catching A Plane level, when the last intermission sequence is loading the game may exit.
Using the "Unlimited Ammunition" code on the Water Way level will prevent you from getting the flashlight.
Enabling too many codes in the Airport level may freeze the game at the end. When you get close to the end of the level, a loading screen will appear and turn black. You will have to reset the game to continue.
No cheats can be enabled when attempting to load the mission named "Malachi And Bane 2". The screen will turn black and the game will freeze. If codes are enabled you must reset the game and replay the "Malachi And Bane" mission in order to continue. After the level is completed, you will be able to save.
Agent On Board level: Defeating Agent
When in the tower, and the Agent is shooting at you, quickly run down the left pillar and stand behind it. The helicopter should be at your back. Use your peek and shoot move to your left side. If you use a fast enough gun, you can kill the Agent in about three seconds. If you fail to kill him the first time, keep in mind he moves in this order: left, right, back. Stay behind the pillar and the your peek and shoot and you will not be hit.
Airport level: Take out helicopter
During your battle with the helicopter as Ghost, use the following strategy. Focus Run across the room to where the wall starts to curve. Back up against the wall facing the away from the large glass window. Hold "Auto Aim" and when the SWAT starts to jump down through the window, use your Focus and dispatch them with the least amount of ammunition possible. Go back to where you were against the wall earlier and wait for the helicopter to pass over. When it does, it will shoot the wall. If you are in the correct location, it will not hit you. After you hear the bullets stop, run around the wall and the helicopter will be exposed without any protection. Use your Focus and dump at least a clip into it. Then, return to the wall and repeat the process. It only takes three to four times to take down the helicopter.
Playing as Ghost, and after you have just shot off the plane's tire, you will encounter the Agent chopper. Change your weapon from the M95 Sniper Rifle to the SG - 552. Immediately stand almost as far back as you can go from your current position, so that you are not too close to where the chopper will appear. The moment you see it, use Focus and fire at the same time. The chopper should take major damage, but will leave your health at a minimum of about 20% before backing off. It will then try to attack you from the right; turn about 90 degrees to your right and get ready to blast it with the remaining ammunition. Make sure you that you do not stay too far back, because your shots may have less chance of hitting. You may get killed here if your reflexes are not fast enough. Also, if you defeat the chopper you may be left with just 1% health, but this is enough to get you out of there, let you save your game, and continue the war to save Zion.
An easy way to defeat both helicopters in The Airport is to drop weapons at the ticket counter just before you meet the first helicopter. Using Ghost, under the hard difficulty setting, you can hack and view the map for The Airport, which shows the code PNSRZ10. Use the "DROP" command with that code and get two M240 weapons at the ticket counter just before the first helicopter battle. Using an M240 takes about eight seconds to kill a helicopter. For the first helicopter, wait behind a wall for it to turn around after firing, then run out to unload on it. It should go down before it makes its way to the roof to drop cops through the window. For the second helicopter, hide behind the columns in the tower and use the "FOCUS" and "STRAFE" commands to shoot at it and still keep moving towards the opposite column. It should take about three times if you follow this method with the M240. The difficult part about using the M240 is remembering not to waste it in the time between the two helicopter battles.
It is much easier to kill the first helicopter by allowing it to make its first pass. While it passes, prepare an automatic weapon. As soon as the shooting stops, press "Focus", get around the corner, and begin shooting the helicopter. Follow it all the way, You should get about three clips unloaded at the helicopter and will almost always kill it in its first pass. If done correctly, this will allow you to destroy the helicopter without a scratch. Remember to get away from the right side of the window when the helicopter begins to fall or the explosion will kill you.
When you battle the Agent helicopter, quickly use the SSG-552 quickly. When the helicopter appears, shoot it as quickly as possible and he will die. Run down the stairs or you will also die. Note: This does not always work.
This strategy is easy, yet time consuming. Once the mission starts, use Focus and run to the wall opposite to you. Wait for the SWAT members to pop in from the roof. Make sure you have stun grenades and the machine gun. Having flash bangs is also recommended. Kill the SWAT members using Focus to avoid damage and steal their ammunition. To kill them, once they pop in throw a grenade at them, then mow them down with the machine gun. Then, hide behind the fountain and wait for the helicopter to pass. It will be shooting a high powered chain gun. It will soon turn around with its closed side to you and be vulnerable. Use Focus and shoot around the corner of the fountain. Leave one clip for the SWATs. The chopper will pass. Then, run to the wall again. Once again, SWATs will pop in and then you will have to repeat the process
Take out a fast gun such as a MP5. Sidestep and go left and right with your hand on the trigger at all times until it flies up. Do this on all sides until it gets destroyed. It usually requires two sides to take it down.
Enable the "Unlimited health", "Unlimited ammunition", and "Unlimited Focus" codes. After you shoot the tire off of the plane, An Agent will appear and turn into a SWAT member. The Agent will fly up with a helicopter. Tun as far as you can away from the helicopter and hide behind a pillar. Focus run and shoot with you strongest gun then run back behind another pillar. If the helicopter comes around the corner, then run behind a pillar that it cannot shoot you with. When you shoot the helicopter, it should lose life quickly. Keep repeating this.
Listen to the sounds of gunfire and breaking glass until it stops. Get your MP5 and move to the right, where the helicopter is located. Shoot it until it gets to the last window. Then, get a stun grenade and throw it immediately after the helicopter passes the last window to kill the SWAT team. Keep doing this until the helicopter crashes and explodes.
Airport level: Destroy bulletproof glass
When trapped in the room with the bulletproof glass, use one of your grenades. Throw the grenade then run behind the wall. It will destroy the glass.
Answer The Phone level: Engage in early duel with an Agent
Playing as Ghost on the city rooftops, after evading the many gaps and climbing the ladders, the Agent that burst through the door drops down to destroy you. If you choose to hide behind the left wall and attempt to fire off rounds from around the corner at this Agent, he will unsurprisingly dodge every bullet. If you Focus, you should be able to jump over the gap between you and the Agent, and will be able to engage in hand-to-hand combat. However, at this point it is extremely hard to win; so continue to jump across to your left. Fall down into the lower area. Now instead of taking the cop out and running up the stairs, dispatch the cop(s), but wait around long enough to see the Agent. If he fires at you, then Focus and bullet dodge to get close to him. You now have enough space to fully challenge this Agent without being closed in. Battling an Agent is more intense (and difficult) than taking on any groups of police or SWATs, because they can avoid all bullets and have shattering strength. You will have to Focus almost all of the time in order to knock him down, and inevitably you will soon find yourself on the brink of death. Run up the stairs and to the phone if low on health. Note: Although you cannot fully destroy the Agent, you can temporarily defeat one until it moves into another body. This would seem impossible, but there is a way. Going back to the point where you climb up the ladder and the Agent first drops down, instead of waiting for the Agent to land, climb up the ladder. Before you even see the Agent, start running and use your Focus to jump to the platform where the Agent lands. Still holding Focus, move behind his position where he lands. Begin to kick him, and as he is off guard, he is very unlikely to counter. If you kick him enough, you should be able to knock him off the edge of the "platform" and down the gap, causing the Agent to plummet to his death. Thus, you have temporarily defeated an Agent. Note: If you should ever face Agent Smith, you would be wise not to underestimate him, he is the most skilled Agent.
Answer The Phone level: Trip Agent
Press "Focus", then [Down] + [Kick] to trip the Agent. Immediately when he gets up, press [Kick] and he will fall off the edge and stay out of your way for awhile.
Answer The Phone level: Weak Agent
It is possible to beat the Agent who comes through the ceiling to death. Enable the "Unlimited health" and "Unlimited Focus" codes and it should work. Note: This takes a very long time.
Answer The Phone: Defeating Agent
When you are running from rooftop to rooftop, you will see an Agent drop down onto another roof across a gap. If you Focus and unload on him while running at him, he will begin dodging your shots. Jump across the gap and over the Agent, firing at him as much as possible. When you are over his head, stop Focusing. You will land behind him and although you will not be shooting at him anymore, he will still be dodging for a few seconds. Use this opportunity to get in a good strong kick or try to knock him into the gap. If you do not get him in the gap on your first try, you should probably quit. If you knock him off the roof, you will see his gun appear on the ground, then quickly shrink into nothingness. You have now defeated the Agent.
This is very difficult to do and may take some time. After you see the first Agent, keep running as usual. When you reach the place where the agent jumps through the wooden roof, shoot at him to keep him occupied (or throw him in Focus mode). Run up the steps quickly and let him follow you. When he runs at you, move out of his way and let him stand near the edge. Run up to him (not in Focus) and try to throw him. Eventually, he will fall off the edge. When he does, stand on the edge on one of the little "bars". When you look down, you will see Agent Smith laying down on the sidewalk with his gun beside him. Note: When you look down there, you will also see regular cops shooting at you.
The Bowels level: Kill Agent
When playing as Niobe and are being chased by the Agent, get to one of the pillars with the gas tanks. Wait for the Agent, then shoot it as he runs by. If timed correctly, it will explode and he will die. You will even be able to see his body. You will, however, see him at the ladder at the end of the level.
When you are running from the Agent, run past the flammable gas tank. Wait for the agent, then shoot the tank. This will kill the Agent. When you get to the ladder at the end of the level (if you are fast enough), you will see a police officer turning into an Agent. While he is shaking, shoot him in the head. This will kill him again for a very long time.
Concourse level: Flash bangs
At the beginning of the level as you go into the first terminal, go forward and two civilians will run out of a door and a policeman runs out of a gate. If you let the policeman get away, he will shut himself behind a gate. Kill him before he does this and a box of five flash bangs will appear. Walk over it to collect them.
Concourse level: Exit terminal
As Niobe, when you first start a woman runs past you. Run directly towards the railing and jump over it. Sparks will tell you to stay out of the lobby unless you want a fight. Fight the cops that enter the lobby then turn and go back to the side of the concourse that you started on. You must stay on the ground floor and run towards the escalators. Turn left when you get to them and do not go up. Continue across to the other side of the concourse and turn left around that corner. Somewhere in front of you or near you should be a man. If you go near him, he will start to run away. Follow him. He will keep looking back at you and will trip. He will run slightly farther, then stop, turn, and walk out the door of the terminal. You can follow him out before the door closes to get outside. You will see the SWAT van parked at the curb, and if you go around to the other side you can pick up an entry shotgun. There is really nothing else useful out there, but you can run around if desired.
Control Tower 2 level: Easy completion
Pull out a sniper rifle quickly after the level loads. Then, put yourself in first person mode. A circle with a cross through it will appear. Next, press "Focus" and wait for the plane to come into your sights. Wait for the front wheel to come into the circle in the middle and shoot. You will need to do this multiple times to shoot the wheel. When you finally get it, you will see the bullet hitting the tire and popping it. You will then have to shoot the helicopter and get out of the tower.
Freeway level: The Matrix Reloaded reference
While playing the level as either Niobe or Ghost, you will pass under many bridges. A few minutes from the start of the level, you will pass under a particular bridge that appears to have a fire blazing on top of it. This is a reference to The Matrix Reloaded, when Morpheus sabotaged the vehicle the Twins were driving in, while on top of that very bridge. What you see in the game is the remaining aftermath.
Hard Line Pursuit level: Kill Agent
At the point where you find a grenade launcher after the telephone gets destroyed, find a cliff where you will get killed if you fall off. Lead an Agent to the cliff. Stand with your back to the cliff. Once the agent is at arms length away, Matrix jump over his head and run a short distance away. Then, turn around and take out the grenade launcher. Aim at his feet and try to blow him off the cliff, which saves ammunition. You can also try kicking him off.
Hard Line Pursuit level: Ramping taxi
When playing as Ghost, and you get to the end of the level (at the drawbridge) in time to see the bridge go down, look forward. You should see a taxi ramp off the bridge before it lowers all the way.
Jackson In Stream 2 level: Kill Agent
As Niobe, the Agent will start to chase you. The big tank of "Dangerous Gas" you run past can be shot. When the Agent passes it, shoot it. It will explode, and kill the Agent. Note: You may want to enable the "Invisible to enemies" and "Unlimited health" codes.
Play as Niobie and you will start in a room where there is an Agent shooting at you. Ignore the "Don't fight, run'' message. Instead, take out your MPS gun (you can use a pistol). Shoot him and he will dodge the bullets. Get him to dodge all the way to the left or right. At that time, shoot the explosive barrel. It will kill him, and you may pick up his gun.
As Niobe, when Sparks says run, do not fight him (turn on Focus). Run between the two missiles and turn around, then shoot the bio hazard sign. The Agent should fall and lose his gun. Note: Use the shotgun.
After you find tunnel 7R, An agent will chase you. There is a very easy way to kill him. Every so often there will be a tower lit by red lights. On this there are four boxes labeled "Danger: Explosive!". Lure the Agent near one of those boxes, step back, and while in Focus mode, shoot the box in first person mode. This should instantly kill him, and you can take his Desert Eagle.
Monorail level: Playing with "Enemies cannot see you" code
Go to the gate where the two men are pinned down by SWATs. Enter first person mode and pick-off all the SWATs. The two men will say, "We owe you a lot Ghost/Niobe", and the other/your gate will open. You can now complete the mission successfully.
North Point 2 level: Shooting down the helicopter
First when you get into the level, take out your M240. Then, turn to your left until you see the helicopter. Start shooting and follow the helicopter until you see it go down. This is a fast way to complete this part, and is easy to do.
Reactor Core level: Shortcut
At the beginning, turn and run to the top of the stairs on the right. Next, hide your weapon, run in matrix mode, and jump across the gap. If done correctly, you should grab onto the railing on the other side and just go up some flights of stairs to end the level quickly.
Tea House level: Shortcut
When you are at the Tea House, lose the fight and you will go to the end. You will not have to put up with the Agents and will miss about four stages.
Unexpected Arrival level: Layout
When you start the level, kill all the guards. Then, look at the picture on the easel. It shows you the layout of that section of the post office. The red X is you, the green arrow is the fork lift, the green Xs are enemies, and the red O with a line through it is the place with the smoke grenade.
Vertigo level: Shortcut
Proceed through the level as usual until you reach the part where the Agents drop out of the buildings and put you through a wooden floor. Instead of walking or jumping it, do a long Matrix jump over the gap next to it. If you make it the leap, follow the outer boards and do a big jump at the end to the windows. Once in the building, exit at the far window and you will be near the end of the level. By doing this, you will eliminate about 75% of the level.
Vertigo level: Escape from Agents
Choose any character. Starting on the Vertigo level, you will notice that a lot of Agents will be chasing you. If they catch you, they throw you a lot of times. When they seem to be getting a little close to you, turn around and start shooting at them. The bullets will not hit them, but they will keep dodging them, giving you enough time to escape. Use Focus, as it will seem that they are moving a lot slower. Get your gun out, hold "Focus" ( [R] ), while facing the agents, hold [Down], press [B], and shoot. Your player will jump back, and you will go back farther and keep shooting. Note: Enable the "Unlimited Focus" and "Unlimited health" codes.
Vertigo level: Confused Agent
When you first get outside, do a Matrix jump and land on the first bar. Do not move or you will fall off. If you see the Agent, he will be punching nothing. This is a good time too refill health and Focus. Note: The Agent may fire at you.
When you are being chased by a lot of Agent Smith clones, get to the window which first leads you out to the scaffolding and climb out of it. Once on the scaffolding, grab a gun and hide around the corner. Once Agent Smith comes into firing range, fire through the window while hiding round the side so you can dodge if he fires back. After emptying a round on him, he will stop, straighten his tie and jacket, and will not attack you, even if you hurt him.
Vertigo level: Kill Agents
There is only one way you can kill the Agents. Enable the "Maximum firepower" code and take out the grenade launcher. Shoot the Agents three or four times and they should die.
Enable the "Invisibility" code. Wait for an Agent to come outside a skyscraper then knock him down. Note: Swords do not hurt Agents.
Spark's Training Construct
Start a new game under who you want to play Spark's Training Construct as Niobe or Ghost. Wait for all the FMV sequences to finish and save your game when prompted by selecting "Yes". Exit back to the main title screen, with the "Load Game", "New Game", "Options", and "Hacking" options. Select "Hacking". Load the saved game that was just saved. When asked to press a key, do so to clean the system. Your should now be at the "A:\" prompt. Type "CHEAT" followed by a space, then "13D2C77F" Your screen should have "A:\CHEAT 13D2C77F" displayed. Press "Enter". A message stating that you have unlocked a bonus level will appear. This actually refers to Spark's Training Construct. Exit hacking by going to "Exit" in the command list and choosing "Y" (for yes) and pressing "Enter". Save your progress by answering "Yes". Go to "Load game" at the main menu. Look for "Spark's Training Construct" and go there. You can also indicated that it should be the game you just saved; load this. The game will bring up levels you completed. Move to the right until "Spark's Training Construct" appears in view and load it. If prompted, insert the next game disc. You should now be in the hallway full of doors after it loads. Move forward and go to the second red door you see on your right. > Open it and you will now be in a gym where training takes place. Go forward until you see buttons on the wall. Press the left button first. Training will begin. Grab all the weapons behind you and blast your enemies.
Once inside the "shooting range," you can participate in a test of skills. Press the red button and get ready. You will start out behind one of the tables and are told that you are caged in and have to fight. SWAT Agents will start running from the back of the room in your area. If they get up to the 10 ft. mark, youwill lose. Turn around, grab all the guns you can, and take them out. If you get more than twenty, it unlocks the other red door in the hallway. This is where you can engage in hand to hand combat with a never-ending supply of SWAT. This a very good opportunity to harness your fighting skills and find new moves.
In the shooting range in Sparks' Training Construct, look at the hanging targets in first person view. Shoot them until your green crosshairs turn red. Do this to all the targets to open up the other training mode in the same room. You will now be able to push the button on the right. In this mode, you try to shoot the floor out from under people walking across platforms. You will fail if they make it to the other side.
You can only open the red doors. In the beginning only one will be open. Press the red button on the far wall and you will appear before a table. Collect the guns behind you and stop the SWAT members before they reach the 10 foot mark. Note: Use the sniper rifle, and if they get too close, try the shotgun. Shoot the floor of the runners, and when the walkers approach the door quickly shoot them or their floors. Then, work your way across the top row. Score above twenty and the next door and the green button will be available. The green button will set you between you between the tables, and unable to move. With your sniper rifle, shoot the floor beneath them. They will earn you a point, but do not let them reach the doors. After twenty points you can unlock the elevator doors near next to the warehouse in the next red door. In here you will find a red and green button. Push the red button to try and kill twenty people. Note: Use the unlimited focus here. The green button will now be accessible. Knock as many people as you can off the platform within three minutes. Note: Kick them off for as long as you can, and when you engage combat mode throw them off the edge.
In the training mode where you have to fire at SWAT team members as they advance, the easiest way to do this is to select a high powered automatic weapon. As soon as you can, backup until your back is against the shelf behind you. Strafe back and forth as you fire, and you will continue to pick up ammunition for your current gun. This will save costly weapon switching time and you will be done quickly.
You will have to pass a challenge that involves throwing off at least twenty people. Turn around and jump off the left corner toward the entrance. Remain there and they will kill themselves.
Chat with Spark
If you activated the "TRINITY" folder, type "HANDSHAKE.EXE" and press Enter. You will see a message from Spark. Type anything and press Enter. He will say that you sent him a file to download with a trojan virus. He will then say that he was playing. He will tell you something about you having access to his computer. Access the "DIR: folder and go to "LOGOS:". Go to your command list and select "EMP: in what he gave you. He will say that he was just kidding and will give you a gift in the loading screen. When he is done, you will hear a message from Neo. He will then say goodbye and shutdown the computer for you.
Niobe walks off building
Successfully complete the game as Ghost, then enable the "Unlimited health" and "Unlimited ammunition" codes. Play the chase levels where many Agent Smiths are chasing you. Get to the point where you get the grenade launcher. Use the grenade launcher to take out the Agent Smiths. This requires about two to three hits from the grenade launcher. Continue until the last part just before the final sequence in the Matrix before you get on the platform and kill the Agent duplicates. Look directly ahead at the top of the balcony. You can see Niobe walking into the mini pillars. If you kill her, you will die even with the "Unlimited health" code. Fire the grenade launcher at her, and she should climb up the fencing and walk off the building completely.
Skip levels with Niobe
When on the first level with Niobe, walk into the men's restroom in the main lobby . You should go to a level called Behind The Scenes and skip you two or three levels.
Defeating Agent Smith
It is possible to take down Agent Smith without a wall kick, even if temporarily. First, scoot back so he does not throw you, then equip any gun and fire. At the same time, go into Focus and while he is dodging the bullets you just fired, run in then punch or kick him until he goes down. Kicks are recommended because they are more powerful. Then, get out of there while still using Focus. When you are out of harms way, let off the Focus. Note: Doing this in cramped spaces such as hallways is not recommended unless absolutely necessary.
When fighting the Agent Smiths, there will be a level where you find a grenade launcher. Stay far back when shooting or you will be caught in the explosion. The Smiths will die with about three shots from the grenade launcher. Be careful -- even when you have unlimited health, you could be blown off the buildings and die. Also, do not get close to the Smiths or they will throw you. When a Smith dies, you will be able to pick up an actual Agent's gun (the .50AE), which can be used in dual handguns. These handguns are the most powerful in the game.
Get a 40 mm grenade launcher. Go into Focus mode and shoot him three or four times. Look again and he will be dead on the floor. You can take his gun if desired. Kill another one to have a double weapons.
In certain levels you have grenades or grenade launchers. Three launched at far range or one at close range will kill them. If they do not die, pull out a gun. When the auto aim is red, it indicates near death; you can easily take them in hand to hand combat. Sometimes sparking objects are nearby. Knock them into it and will die.
On the level where the Agents chase you up the stairs and onto the rooftops, you can kill them. Before entering the levels, make sure you have enabled the "Unlimited ammunition", "Unlimited health", and "All weapons" codes.. At the beginning of the level, cycle through your weapons and select the grenade launcher. As soon as an Agent runs after you, shoot him three times with the grenade launcher. Wait until the smoke clears and they will be dead.
This trick works best if you are Ghost. In any level that has an Agent and you are or can get to a roof, go up to the Agent. He may kick or punch you back; watch the ledges. Hit him once or twice so that the camera pans to the side. Walk up to him, punch him, then do a Focus Kick (without pressing a direction). The agent will fly back. While he is on the ground press [Punch]x2, "Focus" + [Back] + [Punch]. This will do an uppercut, sending him flying. Once he is in the air, press [Kick] and Ghost will do a flying kick, sending the Agent soaring across the room. If you are on a roof, do this to send him flying over the edge, where he dies on impact.
Enable the "Unlimited ammunition" code and obtain the GP gun (which takes the oxygen out the air). It can kill an Agent.
The first time you face an Agent, run. Towards the end of the pursuit, the Agent drops directly in front of you. Note that there is is a gap in the building between you and him. Focus and make the jump. Then, while he still getting up from the fall, run behind him with your back close to the wall and do a kick off the wall. He will fly into the gap, and get killed.
When fighting Agents, kick continuously at them while they are near a wall. They will soon be laying in the wall.
In levels with multiple Agents, use Invisibility and hit one. It may make him fight his partner.
In the level with the Gp-25 Launcher, go up to an Agent and shoot him. He will try to dodge it, but the smoke kills him. Note: You must be Niobe to see an Agent in this level.
It is possible to kill Agents in either of two ways, using a grenade launcher/thrown grenades, or by hand to hand combat. However, to kill them in hand to hand combat, you need to be on a level with rooftops or windows. This strategy works best with Ghost, since his punch combo involves sending an Agent in air, and you can follow up with a jump kick. In order to get close enough to the Agent to send him in his downward plummet, you need to have the "Unlimited Focus" and "Unlimited Health" codes enabled. The "Swordfight" code also works well for taking on multiple Agents, but is not necessary. First, shoot at the Agent so that he starts dodging the bullets. Then, use your Focus, get into him, and use the back punch combo that uses the two uppercuts. Next, kick at him and repeat until the Agent has fallen to his demise. Throwing works as well, if do are not using the sword
An easy way to kill Agents is to blow them apart with explosive weapons. Enabling the "Unlimited health" code is recommended. Three to four grenades may be needed.
To do this, it is best to use the "Unlimited health", "Unlimited ammunition" , and "Unlimited Focus" codes. Use Focus and try to disarm the Agent. It may take a while, but eventually you should get it. Once the Agent is broken, you can punch and kick him and he will not react. He will just stand there and straighten his tie every once in a while. If you try to shoot him, he still dodges the bullets as normal.
Recover from Agent hit
When an Agent pushes you, you can recover from it. When he pushes you down, hold [L] + [Z] to recover from the fall. Make sure you are not in Focus before he pushes you.
Let him strike first, and stay defensive. After this, lay it on him then back off and repeat.
Defeat SWAT members
Take out any gun, go into Focus mode, then run and jump while shooting. When in Focus, your aim improves and the run and jump will help you dodge bullets.
Allow the game to idle at the main menu. It will eventually play the preview trailer that was used to promote the game through the website.
Alternate ending sequence
As Ghost, when you have to fight the man to see the oracle, you are supposed to lose. After you complete the game, go back and load that level. You can defeat him to get an alternate game ending.
You may have trouble grabbing the flashlightm which is actually a MP5 icon. To get it, take out your MP5 and waste its ammunition so that the gun is no longer in the inventory. The same goes for MP5 pistols. Once this is done, you can pick up the flashlight/MP5. Equip it to turn on the flashlight.
Unlimited ammunition in car
When playing as Ghost on a level where Niobe is driving the car, hold [A] the entire time because you have unlimited ammunition.
Approach a Powerade vending machine and press [Action] near the buttons on the machine. A Powerade will pop out.
In the Nuclear Plant level where you get the UMP, look at the wall just before you go up to the tower to find a Powerade vending machine.
If you have low health and are in trouble, go to a Powerade machine. Press [Action] and a Powerade will pop out of the machine. Run on top of it, and if done correctly it will fill up your health.
Focus Counter/Reversal technique
Opponents such as Agents, Seraph or Smith have a high rate of reversal/counter which can deal large damage. On a high level, this makes offense not the most suitable option, as the more you attack, the greater the window of opportunity for your opponent to counter/reverse. Anticipate a punch or kick, and before it commences you must fully Focus. Take note of the opponent's stance, keeping a view of their hands and feet while still Focused. The precise moment you see the opponent begin to move their hands or feet to strike, press [Action] for a guaranteed reversal. The amount of damage dealt to the opponent here can be rewarding, as reversals are the most time sensitive and must be executed precisely during combat -- a misplaced reversal attempt can leave you vulnerable.
Running on walls
Press "Focus" while you are close to a wall. If done correctly, this should make your character run against the wall, then eventually do a cartwheel off it.
Jump off walls
To jump off a wall, put your guns away, enter Focus and jump toward the wall. When you are about to hit the wall, press [Jump] and you will flip off the wall in the air. If you want to do a bullet jump (the jump that you do in a battle with guns), draw your guns before you get to the wall and press [Jump] at it. Then, shoot away. You cannot shoot while flipping though.
Press [Up] + [Jump] without focus, then immediately press [L] to activate focus. You will jump consistently longer.
When you are in a close area, Focus and do a wall run. Then, press [Jump] and move your character to the other wall. Next, do another wall run then press [Jump]. You should still be in Matrix mode. If done correctly, you will be able to dodge a lot of bullets.
Longer wall flips
When doing a wall flip in Matrix mode, press [Jump] to do a longer flip. Note: You will not be able to fire your weapons while doing this. Be careful, and try not to use it around a lot of enemies.
Get a gun (preferably a machine gun) and switch to first person view. Shoot and you will see that the bullets appear in a perfectly straight line, no matter what the weapon. This is extremely useful and works with any gun.
Pull out your pistol(s) by pressing [Y]. Then, press [A] to hit your enemy with the butt of the gun. Your gun will disappear. While he is dizzy, pull out your pistol(s) again and you will automatically grab his head and shoot him in the stomach.
Press [Punch] + "Weapon Draw" ( [A] + [Y] ) as Ghost to grab an enemy and shoot them in the stomach; or pick them up and throw and shoot them in the air.
When playing as either Ghost or Niobe, hold "Focus" and go up to someone that has a good sized gun (machine gun or sniper rifle). Press [Action] ( [Z] ). This will make them take the weapon from the enemy and do different things (throw them to the ground and shoot them or smack them with their own weapon).
There are three easy ways to instantly kill someone (excluding Bosses, Agents, and Vampires). Disarm someone with a long barreled gun (shotgun, MP5, sniper rifle, etc.). If you grab their gun, and smack them with the butt of it. Try disarming someone from behind, thereby putting them in a sleeper hold. The best way, though, is to have a gun out, and throw ( [Punch] + [Kick] ) someone. You will knock them down, then shoot their head.
If you have two pistols, hold "Focus" and jump when you are in a combat with someone. You will dive forward and start shooting.
Sneak up on someone, and the "Use" icon will appear. When this happens, press "Use". Your character should start strangling the enemy. Immediately press "Focus" to swing them to one side. You will then hear the sound of their neck breaking.
When sneaking up on someone and choking them from behind, tap "Focus" and your character will break your opponent's neck.
Use your gun in hand-to-hand combat
While in hand-to-hand combat at close range, press "Weapon Draw". You will kick your opponent backwards, draw your gun, and fire at him while he is still in the air. This is effective, fun, and looks good. Do this while Focused for added effect.
If two or more weapons are available, press [Left] or [Right]. This should cycle through your weapons.
Successfully complete the game under any difficulty setting. The ending sequence includes what appears to be a trailer for The Matrix Revolution, the sequel to The Matrix Reloaded .
To hear "Going Under" by Evanescence, complete the game. The entire song will be played at the end credits.
Regain health and Focus
Find an area with no enemies. Remain idle and your heath and Focus will rise.
Glitch: Power Plant: Make Niobe disappear
Go on the Power Plant level (Core Control Room 1). Enable the "Unlimited health" code. Shoot the first three snipers. Defeat the SWAT team that appears in the room that you are in. Shoot all of the next group of snipers, except for one. Go to the far right of the window. Perform a forward dodge bullet move (hold [Forward] + [Action] ) and you should end up landing on a pole. Go to the highest point of the pole Hold "Focus" and walk off the right side of the pole. Then, run over to Niobe and shoot the last sniper. Follow Niobe around the brides. Niobe will mysteriously disappear, as well as half the core.
Glitch: Sewer: Stand on nothing
Near the part of the level where you are supposed to answer the phone, take out all the snipers and do a backflip off of the right wall (facing the big fan) of the pillar in the middle, phone story. While falling, press the Analog-stick in the direction of the catwalks. If done correctly, you will land outside of the catwalk, having fallen one story. Look below and you will see nothing. You will not be able to move more than a few steps and never move again. You can only turn, shoot, use Focus (no special moves), fight, and go into first-person view.

Glitch: Carry sword in multi-player mode
Use the following trick to have one of your multi-player characters carry the sword throughout each battle. Get the sword and then go into multi-player mode. Press [Kick] + [Punch] to get the sword out. Defeat your opponent, then when the match restarts you will be holding the sword.
Glitch: Keep sword out in single player mode
Use the following glitch to keep the sword out in single player mode. Use the sword, but at the exact moment get hit with a blast. Try throwing a grenade or flashbang, then use the sword on an enemy.
