Note that all of these codes assume that Player 1's controls have been set to 'Keyboard' in the  F5  setup menu and left on the default settings.

Cheat mode

When the game first starts and the SEGA logo appears, quickly hold down Reload (default key G) and press Up (W), Down (S), Left (A), Right (D). A gunshot sound will confirm correct entry. This will unlock all of the content below except 'Gun Select'.

To unlock 'Gun Select' as well, when the Sega logo appears again, hold down Reload (G) and press Down (S), Up (W), Right (D), Left (A), Up (W), Up (W), Left (A), Right (D). A gunshot sound will again confirm entry.

Note that both codes stay unlocked, and you don’t have to input both codes in a single session. Inputting the first code, closing the game then inputting the second code works fine.

This unlocks the following features.

Ranking mode
