Change Character

Make a shortcut to maxpayne2.exe, right click on it and select ''Properties.'' Where it says ''Target:'' you will see the location of your maxpayne2.exe file. Change this text so that it reads ''C:\Program Files\Rockstar Games\Max Payne 2\MaxPayne2.exe'' -developerkeys.

Once in game, press PgUp and PgDown to change your character model. Some models are special, and some levels do not work properly with this code:

Unusable levelsGenerally, any level where Payne moves in a cutscene. ie Get in elevator
Enemies/Payne/Mona/Vlad/VinnieNo slowmotion in Shootdodge, infinite 9mm ammo
Bravura/Finn/'Wall Street Yuppie'/Vinnie in 'suit'No weapons

Lots of Empty Clips

Similar to the glitch in Max Payne 1 which allows you to drop the same clip on the ground numerous times by jumping, this involves the same technique. Once you've hit the reload button, do a jump roll (NOT [shift] bulletdodge) to the left, right, or back, as soon as the clip is coming out, when you come out of the jump roll, Max will drop the clip again, and the process can begin anew. However, jumping up or forward will not affect the reload.

Super Jump

Switch from a one handed weapon (pistols, SMG's) to a two handed weapon (shotgun, rifle) or vice versa and immediately press jump.

Easter Eggs

In Memoriam (eerie)

This could be found on Part 1 Chapter 7 (The Million Dollar Question) After entering the room with a cleaner talking to another outside a window, take em off both. Jump into the lift outside the window and press the button to make your way down the scaffoldings. Make your way further down the scaffoldings into another window below where you've just seen a man taken off. Blast the cleaner inside with a shotgun (preferably! bang!) and instead of going inside, move your way further to the left side of the building (walk on the ledge). There you'll see an open window with some sort of faint light emanating from the inside. See for yourself what's inside the room! Eeerie!

Taking cool screenshots

Start the game with maxpayne2.exe -developerkeys -screenshot.
To do this you right click on your shortcut (which is usually on your desktop) and add -developerkeys -screenshot after the target line, here's an example:

''C:/Games/Max Payne 2/MaxPayne2.exe'' -developerkeys -screenshot

Then when you're playing press the pause button and then F3 and you'll be able to move the camera around freely, and with F10 you'll take a screenshot which will be saved in a folder called 'screenshots' in your Max Payne 2 folder. To get the camera back to normal just press the F3 button two more times.
