Age of Empires 2 cheats – everything you need to know

Age of Empires 2 cheats – everything you need to know

So you want some Age of Empires 2 cheats? As the most popular out of all the legacy Age of Empires RTS games, AOE2 is still getting dedicated support through new DLC – one of which was released earlier this year, with another on the way. It’s so popular, that World’s Edge and Relic Entertainment have basically based Age of Empires 4’s design off of it.

Like all Age of Empires games, it also has some wonderful cheats that can spawn whacky units, like a Shelby Cobra or Alfred the Alpaca. I always found these way more fun than the usual codes that gave you more resources. ‘Cheating’ in Age of Empires was less about gaming the system than it was about letting loose and having some fun.

A couple of important things to note with regards to Age of Empires 2 cheats. For the unit cheats, these always spawn at a player’s Town Center building. If you don’t have one, you won’t get the unit no matter how many times you type it in. Furthermore, entering a code will prevent you from obtaining any achievements in that session. In the Definitive Edition you can also get medals earned for single-player scenarios – these will also be disabled if you use cheats, so be warned!
