Borderlands Wiki

Cheat Code is a legendary submachine gun manufactured by Hyperion in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel and is exclusive to the Claptastic Voyage DLC.
Cheat Code is obtained from the mission System Shutdown. It can also be occasionally found in a weapon vending machine as an item of the day, and from all suitable loot sources within the DLC.

Special Weapon Effects

Play unfair. – Increased accuracy, recoil reduction rate, and critical hit damage. Reduced magazine size. When in Fight for Your Life/Termination Protocols, the gun has increased fire rate, reload speed and a chance not to consume ammo.

Usage & Description

The Cheat Code is an excellent choice for almost any combat situation, especially when attaining a second wind.


  • The Cheat Code's special effect can become glitched and stop consuming ammo even if the character is not crippled. Getting crippled again, reloading the game, or dying will fix the glitch.
