Once you have the keyboard plugged in, it’s time to get going. Each of these codes is basically a debug command that allows the player to get weapons and move around certain areas of the map. There’s a pretty easy way to abuse this. You can simply spawn powerful weapons and then sell them at the shop or buy new ones.

Also, there’s a chance that these codes could cause your game to crash. If you enter these codes incorrectly, it could also cause a hang or crash, watch out for that.
