GoldenEye 007 Cheats

GoldenEye 007 is back after a long hiatus and is now playable on Nintendo Switch via the Nintendo 64-Nintendo Switch Online+ Expansion Pack. The gem of a game has it all with first-person shooter action, explosive graphics, fantastic multiplayer and best of all, Cheats!

There are a lot of GoldenEye 007 Cheats and unlockables and in this guide we will be going over how you can unlock them legitimately or by using input codes. In this guide you will find the times you will need to beat in order to unlock the cheats the “proper” way and we also have the input codes to unlock them instantly. These codes all worked on the Nintendo 64 game but you may have trouble trying to input them in the Nintendo Switch version of the game. The reason being that the Pro Controller does not have its own C-buttons so you have to use a combination of ZR and the A,B,Y,X buttons in order to input them but we will look into them in a bit.

Unlockable Codes – GoldenEye 007

First off, to unlock the cheats without the use of codes, you will have to beat the best times in each of the levels in the game on different difficulties. That sounds simple enough but you do have to complete all of the objectives that correspond with each difficulty. Some of the times are quite tough to beat and you may find yourself lucky to beat them with half a second to spare. Still, if you are up for the challenge, here is a table with all the unlockable codes:

Input Codes – GoldenEye 007

*Note: These cheats work on the N64 version of the game but have yet to be tested on the Nintendo Switch version. As the game is being emulated from the original N64 game, there shouldn’t be any issue with using them in the Switch version. Should you have any trouble, please do let us know.

If you don’t have the time to unlock each code one by one, you can also gain access to them by inputting a series of button presses. These can be quite tricky as some require you to hold down multiple buttons at once (like the L+R buttons and a C-button, for example). Another issue is that if you are playing with Joy-Con or a Pro Controller, you will need to hold down the ZR button and use the Right Joystick in order to simulate the button presses of the C-buttons. If you were lucky enough to acquire the Nintendo 64 controller for Nintendo Switch, you should have an easier time with the codes.

The codes below can be inputted on the Cheat Menu. You may need to unlock a cheat or beat the game in order for the cheat menu to be accessible from the File Selection screen. In the table below, we have two variations of the same codes to make it easier to input them depending on the controller you are using. (ZR+A,B,Y,X) In the brackets, you will have to hold down the ZR button and to turn the A,B,Y,X buttons into the C-buttons. Anywhere a + is visible, it means you have to hold them buttons down. Where there is a comma in the code, you can then release the buttons and start with the next button sequence. All codes will make a sound if inputted successfully.

  1. How do the button inputs translate to Xbox Series S? I’m having trouble unlocking Invincibility the traditional way. and I’m tempted to turn what I already have on to do the Facility level faster.

    1. Hello Clifford, to be honest, I don’t know the control layout on Xbox or Xbox Series S, I can only guess that it may be similar to Switch but if I was to hazard a guess. There should be a control scheme layout in the game’s pause menu that may show what the controls are. If GoldenEye is a part of the Rare Replay, the control scheme may even be in separate menu somewhere. As for the cheats themselves. Even though they work fine on Switch, you can’t rely on the cheats to beat the game. With cheats on, you won’t be able to progress through to the next level. You will only be able to use them on levels you have already unlocked. I hope this helps.
