Cheats, Codes & FAQs

Cowboy Mode

You have to do this trick in Act 1, Chapter 3 "Rolling Thunder" on Insane difficulty. At the start, before the cutscene, there are 3 cowboy hats in the area. Take out your pistol and shoot them. Skip the dialog by pressing the Back button. The first hat is on the side of the building behind and to the right of the rig. The second hat is between the front and back wheels of a tank to the left of the rig. The third had is behind the second large gas tank, next to the tank with the previous hat. If you shoot all three, all characters will be wearing cowboy hats, and you'll see characters (and even some enemies) wearing hats in cutscenes later in the game.
