Cheats & Guides

Champions of Norrath Cheats For PlayStation 2

  1. Save exploit

    Make sure you have room on your memory card for more than one save. The idea behind the cheat is to import your own character into a map you control. So, if you are after experience fight your way through the game to a boss fight with an easily accessible save point. Fight the boss down to the last hit and then withdraw to the save point. Save the game, this will be the map reference. Now, go ahead and wander back towards the boss and kill him. You gain the xp and loot of the boss fight. Return to the save point and save your game on < Create New Save Game >. This will create a new save that we'll use to import from. Now, exit the game and reload your map reference save (1st save). Once inside your game, hit start and go to Add/Remove Players... Highlight your own character and hit triangle to import a character. Import your character that already has the boss experience into the map reference save you created and you now have the opportunity to kill the boss again (in one blow no less) and regain his xp and loot.

    Alternate exploit
    Utilizing the save method, you can effectively farm cash and items through item duplication. Drop the item on the ground you want duplicated from your map reference save and then import your character. Pick up the item and you now have 2, update your map reference save and then drop both items now. Import your character and pick up both items and you now have 4 of this item. This growth is exponential and over time will amount to insane amounts of cash if your selling, or you can duplicate your favorite weapon to dual wield, or just duplicate augmentations to slot into your armor.

    NOTE: on the alternate exploit it is only necessary to have 1 save spot available.

  2. Quick attacks

    If you have a one handed weapon equiped press the block button and attack button simultaneously to do a very quck strike, use this on a close enemy and you can see the damage rank up.

  3. Instantly go from level 1 to level 19/39/50

    Once you get to the Cloud Giant King in the Tower of Clouds attack him like you would any other time you have fought him, but stop just when he has a sliver of life left.

    Once you have his life down to whatever you consider almost dead, run back to the save point that you found just before you got to the Cloud Giant King. It is very important that you make sure he doesnt follow you back up the path because the game engine doesnt let you save if it thinks that you are still fighting anything and if that happens the cheat is impossible to complete. Once you get back to the save point use a gate scroll. Go to the shop keeper and buy about 20 or 30 exploding potions and gate scroll back. Once you are back drop the potions on the ground. After you have dropped all of your explosion potions save your game, but make sure you save it as a new file so that it doesnt affect your current characters save file and whatever you, dont ever save over this file.

    Next, create the character you want to get to a higher level. It is very important that you start from the character creation screen and not to use a character you have already been playing with because it will ONLY work with a lvl 1 ( 0 exp gained) character. Once you have your new character made, as soon as you gain control of your avatar go directly to the save point and be sure not to kill any orcs. Save your new level 1 character over any save file execpt for the file that is your tower of clouds save.

    After you have successfully saved your new character re-load the 'Tower of Clouds' save file. Once back in that game load in your new level 1 charater into the 'Tower of Clouds' save file, replacing your higher level character.

    With your level 1 character go around and pick up all (or as many as you can) of the explosion potions that you had previously dropped and run down towards the Cloud Giant King. Kill the Cloud Giant King with the potions and you will instantly become level 50 on Champion difficulty, 39 on Corageous, or 19 on Adventurous, with plenty of skill points to distribute.

  4. Raise your attributes to 100 during character creation

    From the main menu, choose "Start New Game," "Normal Game," and "Two Players" (you must have two controllers plugged in for this option to be available). Once in the character creation interface, create Player 1's character as normal, then continue on to Player 2. Player 2 advances to the character attribute configuration screen, where they have 20 points to assign. Without assigning any of the points, have Player 2 press the Circle button until they are asked if they want to back up to Player 1's character creation screens (they will have had to press Circle three times from the attribute configuration screen to get to this prompt). Press X on Player 2's controller to confirm. You are returned to Player 1's name entry screen. Player 1 presses Circle once to back up to their attribute configuration screen, where they now have 20 more points to assign to their attributes, in addition to the 20 they gave themselves the first time through.

    You can repeat the process of going back and forth between Player 1 and Player 2's attribute configuration screens, gaining an additional 20 points for Player 1 each time. Each of the four attributes can go up to 100. However, you must be careful not to use the glitch so many times that you have over 400 points total, because you will not be able to assign the additional points and the game will not let you continue, saying that you have to assign all of your points.

    You can use the process outlined above to raise the stats for up to three characters at a time. Once you have control of your characters in the game proper, you can delete the superfluous non-maxed character from the party by using the Select button menu.

  5. Dual Wield lvl 1

    Start a new game and pick a dark elf. Go through the creation process until you have to enter a name for your character. Enter the name you want and before hitting the enter button hold L1 + L2 + R1 + R2 + L3 + R3 + Triangle and then while holding these down press enter and continue holding them until you get to where you can actually move your character. Make sure you can press the Start button to skip past the next story/movie and go on to playing. Now that your ready go break some fruit baskets or kill some monsters until you get another weapon. Now go into your items screen and in the weapons you have just put that other weapon in your SK other hand. This also works for the barbarian.

  6. Hear the players talk

    Allow the game to idle for over one minute. Your character will say something like "Isn't there something more important to do?".

  7. Death to Elves

    There is a glitch in Act 1. Any npc elf running around, not stationary, can be killed. They give roughly 140-160exp each. You can kill them by selecting the erudite wizard select the spell Shock of Fire and aim it by an elf, make sure it hits something so it will explode next to them. It takes a little time, but shortly they will persih giving exp, and items and a little gold.

  8. Casting time glitch

    When using a spell such as the Barbarian's ancestral call, if you press select right after cast you will go into the inventory then exit out and the spell will be cast without worring about something attacking you during the wait time, works instantly.

  9. Raise character to level 20

    This cheat only works in the North American version of the game. When you enter this code, your player will jump to level 20, have 75,000 gold, and have 999 skill points. The bad thing is, your player will have the same amount of STR, INT, DEX, and STA as when you created him/her. Enter the code in gameplay:

    Effect Effect
    Hold L1 + R2 + Triangle + R3 Level 20, 75,000 gold, 999 skill points
