Gladius (2003) Cheats For GameCube

  1. Easy money or equipment.

    Hire a gladiator from a town recruiting station, and then strip him of his equipment and sell it or keep it if it's good, then expel the gladiator.

  2. Undead Legionaire Cash Machine!

    After you get the ability to raise undead legionaires, raise strip and expel them over and over until you have stockpiled enough equipment to make your fortune. In imperia alone if you do this around ten times it's worth at least a 100,000 coins.

  3. Permanently Recruit A Temporary Only

    When in the Recruit area of any League, you can Permanently Recruit any Temporary Recruit by simply selecting them when you do not have enough dinar's to spend. In other words, make sure that you have fewer Dinars than the temporary recruit costs. They will disappear from the list and appear in your school!

  4. Higher Level Recruits

    Enter a town, go straight to the league office, and enter the ''hard mode'' cheat until all of the enemies' levels are at 30, then enter a battle. You can choose to lose or win, but either way if you enter the recruitment office right after then the recruits will all be around level 28. This even works with amateur and semi-pro schools.

  5. Dervish Faith

    In the Southern Expanse got to the desert near the castle at night, you should find a Dervish lying on the ground (Vultures will circle overhead). Go directly north of her and you should see a small white dot, go to it and press A. You should get some fresh water. Talk to the Dervish and she will be revived. She will offer you an item, do NOT accept it and she will teach Valens and Ursula the move Dervish Faith, an innate skill that will make Valens and Ursula immune to bleeding when a Dervish is on the field.

  6. Misc Codes

    Pause the Game at the specified screens. Either durring battle. While at the School(and or your Gladiators Page) screen or at the Office Screen or the Map.
    Note1*Camera Mode controls - Analog-stick, C-Stick, Z, and R to control camera view. Someone may want to try it I never really used it myself.
    A Noise will specify correct code entry.

    Note2* Random Battles On\Off - This code works but I dont think the Random Battles on Code works as pressing A sends you back to the game or whatever you have highlighted. Also saving with it on may be a permenit affect so I would advise you not to use it unless you dont mind never running into Wild Battles.

Gladius (2003) Cheats For Xbox

  1. Unlimited Money

    Location: Imperia Beach, anywhere on the sand.

    Method: During the dawn hours of each day, you can search the beach for items. Simply leave your movement control in neutral (ie: Stopped), and Press A. A Searching box will come up, after a few seconds the results of the search will appear. If you didn't find anything, simply move a few paces and try again. If you did, Select ''Pick it Up''.

    Remember you can only do this during the dawn hours, once morning is over, you can no longer search the beach.

    Once you have your loot, take it to the nearest shop and sell! In one morning, which is a few minutes real time, I made over $100,000.

  2. Unlimited Money for the Sellout

    Ever wonder why YOU have to pay GLADIATORS to join YOUR school? Isn't that a little backwards? If only life were that easy.
    Here is a way to turn that around.

    You will need enough money to recruit one gladiator. After that it pays for itself.

    Recruit a gladiator that uses heavy armor, like a SAMNITE or a CENTURIAN.
    Take all of his gear. The way you do this is by going to the item screen, and selecting *NONE* for the gear. This cannot be done with weapons, so buy a cheap weapon to use as the replacement if you so desire.

    Now sell his gear. Expel him too... he's pretty worthless.

    That being said, only use this dirty trick with gladiators that you KNOW you are not going to recruit to have on your team permanently.
    The reason for this is that the gladiators that you expel from your school will go back into the recruit pool, able to be recruited again.

    I made 250,000 in about 20 minutes. Not a bad deal.

  3. Remove Equipment Limitations

    Well, first alls you have to do is go into your school.
    Pause the game.
    Now enter; Right,down,left,up,left(4),Y(3)
    If done correctly you should hear and sound.
    Don't worry this code works flaullessly. But you have to enter it every time you turn the game off, and the level still matters, so try to buy weapons for you level character.

  4. Recruiting Glitch

    You can only do this when you have LESS than the recruitment cost and the unit is ONLY temporary recruitable. Go to the person you want to recruit and select 'temporary recruit' then select 'don't recruit' This character will join your party forever. Works well if you want to recruit a dervish in imperia.

  2. Easy Money and Equipment.

    Hire a gladiator from the recruiting pool then unequip all of his/her equipment. You can then expel the stripped gladiator from your school and sell/use that equipment. It's cheaper than buying equipmnent from the vendors and you can sell back excess equipment you've obtained this way at a handsome profit because the hire costs are far less than how much the items' values.

    This a great way to make a profit off of the excess of recruits in the recruiting pool and also be able to afford some the more expensive equipment in the game.

  3. Exploiting load times

    Certain skills have absurdly long load times like Skeleton 1 for the Undead Summoner class. In timed matches the clock keeps running while the skill is loading, so you can run the clock down rather easily with a slow loading skill. Summoning a skeleton when you are in control of Hot Spot or King of The Hill is a good way to eat up time. I've used this trick to win multiple KotH and Hot Spot battles where the enemy should have overpowered me. Skeleton 1 can often take over a minute to load and at a point a second you earn 6 points just from summoning another dude. It's a decent trick and probably the only good thing I think of that has to do with some of the brutally long load times.
