    In the last section of the Tutorial stage,there is a secret room.Across from the Subway Entrance,you can hop up onto a few boxes and then onto a catwalk.Go up the catwalk and jump through the window on the far left (you can easily see the room through it).Inside is a hidden room with four painkillers,an Ingram and some ammo for it.

  2. Secret Room on Docks Level

    On the Docks Level (Part II Chapter II) shortly after you crash the Truck into the Bridge you'll come across a room with two computers,a photo copier and a few shelves in it.In the far right corner across from the shelf,you'll find a switch.Hit it and it'll open up a hidden pannel in the wall that will reveal more shelves that hold ammo for your weapons,grenades and some painkillers.

    Contributed by: ZokeThe2nd 

  3. Armed Rats

    In Part 1 Chapter 2, at the very beginning, throw a grenade (you must cheat to have one) in the hole in the brick wall in front of you. A new objective should appear if you select show objectives : I had declared a war against rats. Now continue the level pass the sewer and then up the stairs. There you will find rats that will shoot at you.

    Contributed by: MonsterManiac 

  4. Secret Room on Parking Garage Level

    Just before you go down the first ramp (your still outside), jump on the barrels to the right of the entrance.Next hop on the small AC jutting out of the wall,then onto the roof.Shoot at the wall to your right until it falls away and go into the room,then drop down the grate into the hidden room.Inside are some supplies,and if you use the radio you can listen to some of the developers talk a bit.

    Contributed by: ZokeThe2nd 

  5. Secret Finale

    Beat the game on ''Dead on Arrival'' with no codes and you will be transfered to the ''Final Battle.'' There you will have to fight at least 20 guys in permanent bullet time. The secret is to kill as many guys in the right corner as you can, then run to the back right corner and ''Quick Save'' it. Then, in that hall you are now in, you will find a little indentation. Hide there and wait for the enemies to come at you and you can kill all them and win! Once you are done, it says, ''Well Done,'' the bullet time stops and then a door opens in the back of the level with a picture of the producers of Max Payne and such. There is also a laser that is forming the ''Rockstar'' sign. I don't know if you can officially ''End'' the level, but if you find a way, post it here please. This ''Bonus'' level is actually pretty fun...try it out!

    Contributed by: Lancorn411 

  6. Dopefish lives!

    The room with the ''Dopefish lives'' poster is in part 1 chapter 7. To get to the room, do the following:

    Go through chapter 7 until you get to the scene where Gognitti runs down the stairs and gets stuck in from of the locked door. Once the cut scene ends, kill enough of the baddies that you can go down the stairs safely (or just do it balls out gung-ho style guns blazing all the way...) Once you get to the bottom, turn around and head beneith the stairs to the door. Open the door, and presto! Dopefish!

  7. Secret Ending Sequence

    Defeat the game on the ''Dead On Arrival'' setting to get a secret ending sequence.

  8. Hidden Room In Hotel

    When you are first going through the hotel level you will eventually come upon a room that is bare except for a pole in the middle that is leaning upwards and some windows on the side. Blow out a window and exit onto the ledege. Crawl along to your rigth until your come to two pieces of wood. Blow out the one that is partially broken and enter the room. There should be a body with a knife through it and Max will say something like ''I didn't even want to know what went on in here.'' On a bookcase by the body there should be some Ammo and Painkillers.

Max Payne Cheats For PC

  1. Secret Area In Max Payne Tutorial

    In the tutorial stage, jump on the van where you got the sniper rifle. Then jump to the square thingy on the wall. From there, jump to the fire escape balcony. Go up 3 floors and destroy the glass window. Wala. A secret room with a new gun.

    I got the hint at the end of the tutorial where it says: ''Or you can continue exploring the rest of the environment...''

    Contributed by: devil 

  2. Extra Difficulty Settings

    If you successfully beat the game on Fugative mode you will unlock two new difficulty settings. ''The New York Minute'' and ''Hard-Boiled''.

    Contributed by: AntiAppel 

  3. Vampire Easter Egg

    On Part I-Chapter 3, there is a door that you can break down (just before the toppling boiler). Go through the door and out a window. After following the bloodstains on the ledge, you'll come to another window to go through after bashing in. Lots of goodies here, and also a body with a stake in its back on the floor with the letters ''BUFF'' drawn next to it in blood -- a little tip of the hat to a famous vampire slayer.

    Contributed by: Phased_5EK 

  4. Thank-You Easter Eggs

    There are (at least?) two parts in the game where Max will thank you for shooting something -- the first is in the bank's vault where the nosy alarms are going off. Shoot the red alarm hanging above the security area. The second is in Lupino's hotel when you enter the elevator and it's playing ''muzak''. Shoot out the speaker in the ceiling to the right after entering.

    Contributed by: Phased_5EK 

  5. Musical Instrument Easter Eggs

    There are several instances where Max will do something when you ''use'' a music-related item. In the Ragna Rock club, you can play a rim-shot on the drums, walk across the guitar to get a twang noise, or use one of the mics to have him say ''Karoke was never my thing.'' Later in the game when in the Punchinelo manor, you can have Max try a few -- unsuccessful! -- times to play the theme to the game on the piano [make sure you have NOT knocked out the lid support before doing this].

    Contributed by: Phased_5EK 

  6. Developer Messages

    On the level where you are confronting B.B. on the parking garage, there is a hidden area where you can get a sniper rifle & ammo. Before going down the first ramp that leads deeper in to the garage, jump on the various objects by the entrance to the lower levels to get on a roof with a small metal-walled building on top. Bash on all the walls with the bat until a panel falls away and then go inside. Once inside, you'll also see a radio you can turn on to hear a rather humourous message from a couple of the game's developers.

    Contributed by: Phased_5EK 

  7. Secret Room

    Beat the game on the hardest difficulty setting, Dead On Arrival, to unlock a secret room, which loads after the final comic book sequence has finished.

    Contributed by: Hazden 

  8. God Mode, Unlimited Ammo, All Guns

    Make sure you modified your short-cut first on your desktop, or this won't work.

    Press F12 inside the game to bring up the console.

    Type in ''coder'' without the quotes.

    It will give you God Mode, Unlimited Ammo, and All Guns without having to actually type in each of the other codes.

    Contributed by: Liquid Crash 

  9. Access the secret ending

    To view the secret ending of ''Max Payne'', enter this into the devloper console, without quotes:

    ''maxpayne_gamemode->gm_sendendofgamemessages( );''

    Contributed by: mozwazherez 

  10. War of the Rats

    On Part I: Chapter 2, you can cause the rats to war amongst themselves. Use the developer command line cheat and give yourself a grenade (<F12> then ''getgrenade'' in the console) at the start of the level. Toss it in the gap of broken titles after the initial level_start camera panning. This will cause the mission objectives to change to ''I had declared war against the rats''. As you progress through the level, you will come across the two factions of rats -- WITH DESERT EAGLES! Shoot at one of the ceiling lamps that's off at its base to make it fall, causing the start of the war. If your group of rats wins, they will join forces and follow you through the rest of the level. If the other rats win, they'll turn their remaining forces on you.

    Contributed by: Phased_5EK 

  11. Turning off more klaxon sirens

    While in the underground portion of the Cold Steel plant (Project Valhalla labs), you can turn off the annoying klaxons -- the Max Payne way! Any time you hear a siren blaring, look around the ceiling for the loud speakers. They are usually located by a doorway, except in the main control room where they are near the middle of the room's ceiling. Pop a round or two in to them and the god-awful noise will stop in that vicinity.

    Contributed by: Phased_5EK 

  12. Secret Soldier of Fortune 2 Room

    During the chase across the rooftop, inspect the dark window at the back to find a room with ammo and Soldier of Fortune 2: Double Helix posters.

    Contributed by: goldenX87 

  13. Secret room in Asgard Building

    In the second part of the Asgard Building, after picking up the video tape and watching the TV news report about Aesir Corp being a huge monopoly, there is a small, dark room with a table, couch etc. Shoot the small painting to make it fall off and a small white button is revealed. Press this button to make the couch behind you rise. Go down underneath it and use the control panel to open the door. Inside, switch the TV on to hear a funny version of Star Trek (called the Void) and open the cupboard behind the curtain to find, er... something else.

    Contributed by: Crono667 

  14. Bad Ending

    To view the 'bad ending' of Max Payne, just let the helicopter on the final level take off.

    Contributed by: Jeevan 

  15. Secret Room beside Basketball Court

    Near the end of the chase in part 1 chapter 7, when it shows Gognitti trying to get into a door (yelling punching and kicking). Go behind the satelite dish and jump down onto the ledge of the opposite building. From there you can jump down under the emergency stairway beside the basketball court. Funny poster inside ''Dopefish lives!'', molotov cocktails, and other weapons.

    Contributed by: TaX 

  16. Endless Empty Clips

    When reloading a gun like the Double Beretta or Ingram, press jump as soon as the empty clips fall out, and Max will reload his gun again upon landing, producing more empty clips. You can do this an unlimited number of times.

    Contributed by: hel 

  17. Different Character Models

    To set up this code, you will first need to add ''-developerkeys'' (sans quotes) to the end of the shortcut target. It should read something like ''C:\Program Files\Max Payne\maxpayne.exe'' -developerkeys'' if done correctly. Then, during gameplay, press F11, then press Page Up and Page Down to view (and control) the game's various character models.

    Contributed by: Mortal Quietus 

  18. 'All Your Base' easter egg..

    In the training level, look closely at the sign on the TAR CAFE (it's near the Police Mobile Arrest Centre on the street). It says:
    ''World's Best Since 1964
    615 ALL YOUR BASE ARE...''

    Contributed by: Pyro Vesten 

  19. Secret area after completing game.

    If you manage to beat Max Payne on the hardest difficulty setting, after the game ends you will appear in a secret area in which Max is in permanent bullet time. There’s a bunch of jackhammer ammo lying around, some painkillers and a few other things. There are around 20 guards waiting for you. After defeating all of the guards the game says “Well Done” and you’ll be able to access a room with photographs of the development team, a special Remedy logo and some other things.

    Contributed by: Pyro Vesten 

  20. Instantly Unlock All Gameplay Modes

    Go to Start Menu->Run and type in ''regedit''. Press Enter. In the directory tree on the left, Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER->Software->Remedy Entertainment->Max Payne. Click on the ''Game Level'' folder, and some items will appear on the right side of the screen. Right-Click and select New-DWORD Value Double-Click on the entry you just made and set the value to 1. Rename the entries to the following:

    Effect Effect
    hell Dead On Arrival mode
    nightmare Hard-Broiled mode
    timedmode New York Minute mode

    Contributed by: hel 

  21. Console Cheats

    To gain access to the cheats edit the game shortcut so it reads the following:
    ''C:(LOCATION OF GAME)\Maxpayne.exe -developer''

    From within the game, you are then able to bring up the console using the F12 key. With the console on the screen type in the below commands to access the cheats.
