Flying Wild Hog and Devolver Digital recently launched the sequel to the reboot of Shadow Warrior onto the Xbox One, PS4 and PC. The game is currently available on PC via Steam and as a DRM-free outing on GOG.com. For gamers who have managed to beat Shadow Warrior 2 and want to try their hand at a few cheats, or for gamers who don’t have the skill to beat the game on the current difficulty setting, there are a few handy cheats available for that situation, too.
There are only two cheats available for the game in the form of infinite ammo and infinite health. There’s a cheat trainer that was put out by Mr. Antifun allowing gamers to boot up the first-person shooter and ensure that they never run out of ammo or never lose health during some of those larger-than-life, epic demon battles across the game’s expansive levels.
Keep in mind that the infinite ammo cheat provided by the trainer does not work across all weapons. Some users noted that the Blades of Zaibatsu continue to consume plasma even with the infinite ammo cheat enabled. Additionally, the chainsaw-katana also continues to consume fuel even when the cheat is on, so that’s something that they may have to fix in future iterations of the trainer.
Nevertheless, Shadow Warrior 2 has been receiving overwhelmingly positive review scores from gamers. There’s a lot of love for the challenge, the weapon selection, the humor and the unadulterated love and attention paid to the gory combat.
Another thing that Flying Wild Hog has received praise for was their lack of DRM in Shadow Warrior 2. According to Eteknix, Flying Wild Hog explained to their gaming audience that adding in DRM and paying a company like Denuvo to lace up their game with those security features only for pirates to crack it and legitimate consumers to be inconvenienced was something they weren’t digging, writing…
“We don’t support piracy, but currently there isn’t a good way to stop it without hurting our customers. Denuvo means we would have to spend money for making a worse version for our legit customers. It’s like this FBI warning screen on legit movies.”
It’s a proper course, no doubt. While a lot of developers may not like leaving their game to the workings of a market without DRM security – sort of like stepping out naked on a runway with a bunch of flashing cameras – the reality is that there are going to be a way more people who are happy seeing a model naked than with clothes on. Same thing applies to video games and DRM.
If you want to get your hands on the cheat trainer for Shadow Warrior 2, you can do so by grabbing the trainer with the two available cheats from over on the Mr. Antifun download thread.
