Three years and 10 months after the release of NieR Automata , the "final secret" teased by Yoko Taro in early 2018 has finally been discovered. Lance McDonald , a recognized modder, indeed found this January 3 a cheatcode allowing to pass the whole game to reach the last possible end, from the first boss of the game. In addition, this cheatcode unlocks the chapter selection , the debug mode , the debug room and the trophy shop.


To achieve this cheat, you will have to place yourself in the right place at the right time, and perform an input sequence.

During the prologue , 2B chats with 9S right after beating the first boss. After this dialogue, go between the two groups of three barrels and perform the following sequence while holding R2 : up, down, up, right, left, square, round, triangle, cross. To prevent your character from moving during the sequence, you can bring up the quick use menu .

After entering the inputs, your screen will go dark and you will arrive directly after the end-of-game credits.
