Going in For the Kill
Bayonetta is an adrenaline-pumping, high-octane action game from Platinum Games, the developers behind MadWorld for the Nintendo Wii. All it takes is one look at Bayonetta in action to realize that it was created by some of the same folks who worked on Devil May Cry.
According to our Brighthub Bayonetta Review, the game rocks as much as one would guess, but that doesn’t mean it’s easy to get through. For those that are having trouble, here’s a handful of Bayonetta cheats to help you through your day.
These aren’t your typical cheats. They’re activated from a certain spot in the game, rather than at the title screen or some sort of cheats menu. Also, they aren’t free! Bayonetta cheats will cost you halos, which act as the game’s form of currency.
After Verse 3 of Chapter 2, you should come across some telephones in the plaza. These phones can be used to input codes. The one next to the stairs is for weapons, the one on the right is for accessories, and the phone at the far end of the plaza is for unlocking characters. After you correctly enter a cheat, you’ll lose a certain amount of halos.
I’ve sorted these Bayonetta cheats by cost.
- UP, UP, UP, UP, DOWN, DOWN, DOWN, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT, LEFT, RIGHT, Y - Costs you 1 million halos and will get you the Bazillions weapon.
- UP, UP, UP, UP, DOWN, DOWN, DOWN, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT, LEFT, RIGHT, B - 1 million halos will unlock Jeanne.

Bayonetta Cheats: Bonus Lollipop
This cheat is unconfirmed, but it’s easy so it’s worth a mention. In cutscenes where Bayonetta is holding a lollipop, the color of the lollipop corresponds to a face button on the Xbox 360 controller. Reportedly, if you hold that button down, you’ll earn a lollipop for your inventory. No idea how long you’re supposed to hold it down, so good luck!
