Hold L hard + R light + Left + Y then
press Start during game play. Your character will speak
to confirm correct code entry. A cheat menu with "Invincibility",
"Level Warp" options will be unlocked.
Play as Drizzt:
Select "New Game" at the main menu, select one of the
three default characters, then hold L + R until
the game completes loading.
The easiest way to play as Drizzt with out completing Extreme
mode, is to complete the Gauntlet level first. Then, return to
the Gauntlet again and use the "Level Warp" cheat. As
Drizzt, warp to any level of your choice and save the game. Note:
You will not be able to load any file containing Drizzt until
Extreme mode is completed. Use any character, the Onyx sword,
and the "Level Warp" and "Invincibility" cheats
to defeat Eldrith under the extreme difficulty setting.
Note: After this code is enabled and you save the game, when you
try to load that game a message will state that you must complete
the game under the extreme difficulty setting to load it.
All feats and spells:
Hold L hard + R light + X + Right
during game play. Your character will speak to confirm correct
code entry. Note: This will reduce your character's statistics.
Control loading screen:
Move the Right Analog-stick and the flames surrounding
"Loading" will also move.
The Gauntlet level:
Successfully complete the game under any difficulty setting.
Successfully complete The Gauntlet level to unlock the extreme
Start with Onyx Sword:
After you have completed the game once and have saved the game
with the Onyx Sword in your possession (for example, with the
human), start a new game with a new character (for example, the
dwarf) and save. Import the human, drop the Onyx Sword and any
other good items, then import the dwarf and pick them up. Note
you can do this with any character and any weapon.
Play as Drizzt:
Successfully complete the game under the extreme difficulty setting.
Alternately, choose to play The Gauntlet. You will start as Drizzt.
Enable the "Invincibility" cheat and complete The Gauntlet
within 15 minutes. .At the end where you face the Onyx Golem,
use the "Level warp" cheat to go to the Tavern. You
can now play the game as Drizzt. Note: You cannot equip any other
sword than the ones he has during The Gauntlet. Import a new character
into the game and give him the Onyx Sword, since Drizzt cannot
If you have not completed the game yet, enable the "Cheat
mode" code, then level warp to the to the bottom (Tower).
Defeat Eldrith, go to the Gauntlet level, then level warp anywhere
Hint: Duplicate items:
Save the game, then drop the items to be duplicated from the inventory
of your current character. Press Start and choose to change
your character. Import your character from the previously saved
game. The game will bring in your character with all items in
inventory at the time of your save, and allow you to collect the
duplicates that are on the ground.
Save the game and use a Recall Potion to return to the Elfsong
Tavern. Drop all your expensive items, then import your saved
player. Pick your items up and sell them. You can do this as many
times as needed, have to save each time before you import again
or you will lose the gold you have made.
Hint: Easy items:
If you have a high level character with many good items that you
would like a new character to have, start a new game with the
new character. Then, load the character with all the items as
the second player. Then, drop the desired items on the floor to
allow the new character to pick them up. Equip everything and
sell off things that are not needed. Then, save the game and restart
the Xbox. Play a new game with a new character and load the other
new character (that has all the items) as the main character.
Hint: Getting good items:
Note: This is best done in the Onyx Tower. Before you open a treasure
chest or search a weapon rack, save the game. Then, open the treasure
chest or search the weapon rack. If you do not like what you get,
reload from the last save and try again. Each time that you try,
you will get a different item.
Hint: Easy money:
This trick can be used at any point in the game. Save the game
near a shop. Drop all your expensive items, then load your saved
character to the same location. After the loading screen, pick
up all your items and sell them. Do this again in the exact same
order. You will get a lot of money.
Use the "Duplicate Items" trick with your most expensive
item or weapon. Keep duplicating it until you cannot hold anymore.
Sell the duplicates and buy the most expensive weapon you can
afford. Duplicate these even more expensive weapons and sell them
back. Keep doing this to build an unlimited amount of gold. It
gets easier when you can afford the more expensive weapons.
Enable the "Cheat mode" and "Invincibility"
codes and go to The Gauntlet level. Get the Onyx Sword, sell it,
This does not award you too much money, but in the beginning of
the game every coin counts. When you sell arrows, the value is
the same, whether you are selling one arrow or a full set of twenty.
This trick only works if you have a bow, as this is the only way
to break up a set of arrows. If you are using the bow, then sell
the used arrows (those of less than twenty), then immediately
repurchase a set. This trick works best if you have less than
100 arrows, as the vendors only buy the last set of arrows. For
example, if you have 1103 arrows, it would not be worth the time
to go through all your arrows to get to your used set.
Get an item that sells for a lot of gold and save the game. Then,
drop that item and go to change players. Press Y to import
a character. Look at the game you saved and import the player
with the high selling item. Then, import that person and the item
you dropped will be in his inventory and on the ground. Do this
repeatedly for as much gold as needed. Note: This will not work
on extreme mode.
Hint: Easy experience:
Note: You must constantly save your game in order to
do this trick. At any time when you encounter a Boss, immediately
save the game to a new file after defeating them. Press Start
and load the game file that was saved immediately before you fought
the Boss. After the game has loaded, press Start and go
to "Characters". Import the character from the file
that was saved when you defeated the Boss. You will now have a
character with more experience, but will be able to fight the
Boss again which results in lots of experience. Keep doing this
every time you defeat the Boss to gain levels faster.
After you are in to the game a short amount of time, talk to everyone
in the tavern for easy experience. Also check periodically; as
you complete more of the first part, there is more experience
to be gained in the tavern.
Use the "Level warp" cheat to go between Acts. Every
time you go to another Act, all enemies and Bosses will respawn.
Warp to the Throne Room, Ice Cave 3, and the Tower before the
final stage and defeat those Bosses. Repeat this to level up quickly.
When in the crypts and fighting the zombies, you can get double
experience. If there is a zombie with two arms, slash him once
without cutting his arm. Then, kill him by arrows or spells. His
top half will come off and chase after you. Kill it, and you will
get experience as if you killed two zombies.
Once you have unlocked the Extreme mode, create a two player game
on easy difficulty. Then create a two player game on extreme mode
and import the two easy mode characters into it. Use the "Level
warp" and "invulnerability" cheats and go to "towerh".
Head down to the "Black Forge" level and defeat the
Onyx Golem. The character who kills the Golem will become level
32, and the other will become level 26.
Start an extreme difficulty file, then load a first level character
from an easy difficulty game. Have them kill the Onyx Golem, but
do not spend the feat points as they level up to 40. Once the
character has finished leveling up, do the "Super 20th level
character" cheat. The feat points will transfer over, but
the hit points and energy will be at 1000/1000. Your character
should now have max stats and enough feats and magic points to
max out all feats and magic.
Complete The Gauntlet level to unlock extreme mode. Start a new
game under the easy, normal or hard difficulty setting. Do not
import anyone when starting the new game. Save the game to new
saved game slot in the tavern. Exit and start a new game under
the extreme difficulty setting. Choose the game you just saved
for extreme mode to transfer. You should be at level 1 with clothes
and no weapons. Enable the "Cheat mode" code. Select
the "Invincibility" option and warp to "Towerh".
Save the game and enter the Black Forge to the Onyx Golem with
the Onyx Sword. Search the treasure chest and weapon rack for
a weapon to attack the golem with. You cannot get injured with
the invincibility cheat on. Defeat him and you will jump to level
40 with about 870,000 experience points. However, to level 41,
you need to get the 100,000,000 experience points.
Hint: Carry more items:
The game only checks how much you can carry when buying
and picking up items. You can put on Rings Of Strength and an
Amulet Of Strength, pick up man items, then take off the strength
items and put on Rings Of Constitution for more HP or other rings
and amulets to boost other stats. This works well when duplicating
Extra Healing Potions so you can carry a large number of them
through tough areas and to face end Bosses.
Hint: Lighter load:
When you first begin the game, you are dressed with
boots, gloves, and clothes - none of which have any defense value.
Sell them to lighten your load by about 15 lbs. You may look a
little funny without any clothes on, but your defense (Armor Class)
will have remained the same.
Hint: Move faster :
To move faster, you can jump everywhere instead of
walking. It will make the journey about one and a half times faster.
Hint: Easy targeting with a ranged weapon:
When using a ranged weapon such as a crossbow, press
the C-stick Forward, then rotate it around to aim,
all the time leaving it on its furthest axis.
Hint: Safe stash:
If you drop items in a place populated by friendly
people (in other words, people you are not allowed to attack,
such as in the Elfsong Tavern), some if not all of the items dropped
will be gone if you leave the screen and return later. However,
items left in the company of monsters (such as in the Sewers)
will always be there when you return. Apparently, the monsters
are more trustworthy than the patrons of Baldur's Gate.
Hint: Resurrection in multi-player mode:
If a player dies during multi-player mode, have the
surviving player go the previous save point. Walk in the light
surrounding the save point and they will be brought back. The
character will be resurrected with all items, but at half hit
Hint: Sorcerer supermodel:
Choose the Elven Sorcerer, then talk to the bar owner
and finish. When you are done, go to the menu and remove her clothes
to see her in her underwear.
Hint: Naked Sorceress:
Start a game in easy mode as the Sorceress. Enable
the "Cheat mode" code and activate the "Invincibility"
option. Take off the Sorceress' clothes and play the game as usual.
After you defeat an enemy such as Xantem, Drow Underworld Witch,
Karn, or Eldrith, the camera will move. If the camera comes close
to her, you can see her naked. This is best seen after defeating
the Orb of the Dead.
Hint: Crypt vase combination:
In level 1 of The Crypt, the combination for the vases
are: blue, green, yellow.
Hint: Freeze ghosts:
When you are in the Crypts or Hall Of Remembrance as
Adrianna or Drizzt, use the Ball Of Ice. Wait until a ghost is
next to a wall then shoot it at the wall. The ghost will freeze
and keep going straight without moving.
Hint: Act 2: Easy experience and gold:
After defeating the Drow dark elf in Act 2, talk to
the Dwarf in the cellar. Then, recall to town and immediately
save the game. Talk to the another dwarf other than the one where
you can buy and sell. He will thank you and give you 2000 experience
and 3000 gold. Save this as a new game. Load the old game and
import your character from the new game. Repeat this as many times
Hint: Defeating Eldritch:
As Adriana under the easy difficulty setting, it is
possible to defeat Eldritch with Magic Missile and blocking. Stock
up on Rejuv and Healing potions, which are plentiful. Have a 2:1
ratio of Rejuv to Healing Potions. Set Magic missile and save
at the stairs of Hall Of Remembrance. When you face Eldritch,
keep her just on screen and set shield to block by pressing Z.
After she has sent her sword to attack and it has hit your shield,
fire two rounds of Magic Missile for each attack of Eldritch.
She will stay put, and towards the end will try and attack with
Spears Of The Tower. Stay put and carry on. You will use no more
than two Healing Potions, but will kill her without needing stronger
spells, such as as Lighting which does not work on her.
Hint: Best sword:
The best sword is not the Onyx Blade. It is the Shocking
Burst Adamantine Bastard Sword +3. It does 48-180 damage, as well
as electrical damage.
The Shock Adamantine Great Sword +3 does 56-204 damage. It can
be found in the Onyx Tower in extreme mode. You cannot buy this
The best weapon found so far is the Shocking Burst Adamantine
Great Sword of Defense +5. The damage is 64-212 and can be found
in the Onyx Tower. You cannot buy this weapon.
Hint: Recall back to saved point:
A simple way to transport yourself from any level is
to use the Recall Potion. The manual states that you can use the
Recall spell to warp you to the safety of the tavern, but it does
not mention that if use it a second time from the tavern, it will
warp you back to your last saved point. This can save lots of
time and aggravation, and can be useful to unload items, sell
them off, or load up on upgrades without having to work your way
back to the same level point after you are done.
Hint: Character choices:
Vahn (Human) : High carrying capacity; starts with accuracy and
Adrianna (Elf): High charisma; starts with burning hands; more
