One of the most popular games of the year is the new Uncharted 2: Among Thieves. The following game cheats for Uncharted 2: Among Thieves will help you get the most out of your gaming time and unlock many hidden abilities, tools and even an Easter egg or two.

Uncharted 2: Among Thieves is the sequel to Uncharted: Drake's Fortune. It's an action-adventure game that follows the exploits of Nathan Drake as he tries to unravel the mystery behind Marco Polo's doomed trip home. Uncharted 2: Among Thieves is available only for PlayStation 3.

Hints

  • Marco Polo's Rich Legacy: In Chapter Six, find the pool on the hotel roof. If you jump in and swim around Chloe and Nate will play Marco Polo. By participating in this side game, you'll earn $10,000 to spend on bonuses.

  • Run While Crippled: If you Nate gets injured, pick up a propane tank and carry it. You'll be able to run as if you're not injured.

  • The Strange Relic: You can find the Strange Relic (a holdover from Uncharted: Drake's Fortune) in the sewer in Chapter Five.

  • Infinite Enemies: To build up your kill stats per weapon or to earn shooting trophies, don't lose heart. You can earn your stats in Chapter 19.

  • Near the beginning of Chapter 19: The Siege, there is a sloping alley that leads to a courtyard. Head down the alley, but watch out — there is a machine gun uphill that is shooting at you. Make your way to the building nearest the cliff on your right and climb up to the right of the door. Take cover in a position where you can see the machine gun.

    If you go too far to the right, the scene will end with a cut scene.

    Use a grenade to take out the machine gun and then keep watch over the grassy area just before the next building. As you watch, enemies will come from the right trying to reach the machine gun. From the safety of your cover, you can pick off the enemies as they approach.

    If you've already finished Chapter 19, you can go to the store and purchase more weapons. Then unlock the "Infinite Ammo" cheat and use these to get the weapon/kills Trophies.

Easter egg

  • Uncharted 1 Signage: The names on the climb-able signs in Chapters 5 and 7 are references to places in Uncharted: Drake's Fortune.

  • Infinite Money: Once you beat the game, you can make more money by finding more treasures etc. Once you earn a lot of money, save the game and then quit back to the main screen. Reload the saved game and you'll keep getting the reward each time you do it.

Tweaks

When you complete the game at a certain difficulty level, you can enable Tweaks. However, when you go back to playing on a different level, these Tweaks go away.

You can easily add them back again at the new difficulty level. Just play the game at the new level until you get a gun, and then switch the difficulty to a level that you've already won and turn on the Tweaks. Next, save and quit the game. Go to the Main Menu and change the difficulty back to the harder level and reload the saved game. You now have the Tweaks on the harder level.

About the book authors:

Growing up in a conservative small town along the Maine coast, Kevin Blackwood never anticipated visiting Sin City. With aspirations of becoming a college professor, he traveled the usual roads of academia, earning bachelor’s and master’s degrees in religious education and Biblical history.
His journey took a sudden detour in 1984. While working on his doctorate at the University of Oregon, he learned how to count cards and started playing blackjack on weekends. His studies began to pale in comparison to the exciting world of gambling. And one day, after a futile effort to find a parking spot on the crowded campus, he bagged his plans to teach church history, quit school — and headed to Las Vegas.
Since then, Blackwood has lived what many would consider the American dream, earning big bucks while working only part-time, winning consistently at blackjack tables all over the world. More recently, he has jumped on the Texas Hold’em bandwagon, with several poker tournament wins under his belt.
His unusual life experiences inspired Blackwood to write a novel, The Counter (Wooden Pagoda Press). In addition, he is the author of Play Blackjack Like the Pros (HarperCollins), the most comprehensive guide to becoming a winning blackjack player. He has also written for magazines, including Casino Player, Midwest Gaming and Travel, Blackjack Insider, and Gambling.com. His TV appearances include the World Series of Blackjack (semifinalist 2005) and the Ultimate Blackjack Tour (finalist 2006).
