Note: This procedure involves editing a game file; create a backup before proceeding. Use a text editor to edit the "hitman2.ini" file in the game folder. Add the line "EnableCheats 1" (case-sensitive) to the bottom of the file. Type one of the following case-sensitive codes during game play to activate the corresponding cheat function. Note: Do not type the codes too quickly or they will not be recognized.
Alternately, press ~ during game play, then press [Tab] to scroll through the commands. Many core game commands that are useless to the player will appear, but other commands such as God mode and invisibility are included.

Silenced ballers gun:
Successfully complete a level with a "Silent Assassin" rank.
Successfully complete a level with a "Silent Assassin" rank twice.
Successfully complete five levels with a "Silent Assassin" rank to get the M4. Alternately, complete the Shogun Showdown level with a "Silent Assassin" rank.
Successfully complete the St. Petersburg Stakeout, Tubeway Torpedo, and Invitation to a Party levels with a "Silent Assassin" rank all in one session.
If you are near a stack of ammunition but are notified by the game that you cannot pick it up, use the following trick to get almost twice as much normal ammunition. For example, if you have a shotgun with full ammunition and are next to a pile of shotgun ammunition, fire one shot, reload, then pick up the ammunition. You will now have almost double the ammunition.
Getting the M4 (M16):
On the motorcade level, you need to clear the town quickly and grab the supplied rifle. Shoot your target. This will cause the UN guards to stop and run on foot to your position. Wait until they get through the gates, then dodge their shots and put them in the cross fire from the remaining troops outside. Since you cannot hurt them, do not shoot. They will soon shoot their own men. Then, just run up and grab an M4. This may not be easy, but it does work.
To get the M4 easier, just use the fiber wire on the UN guards.
Getting the .22SD pistol:
The .22SD is well hidden in the castle level where you have to kill Hayamoto senior. It is one of the items that is displayed in his museum.
The .22SD does not trigger metal detectors. It is useful in the Basement Killing level.
When holding the Uzi, take out the Ballers. The Uzi will be fully holstered, like a pistol.
Throughout all the levels you will run into many different types of guns. Whenever you see a gun that you do not already have, pick it up. After you complete the level on which you found the gun, the gun will now be available at your house. You will have ammunition in the room for you to use if desired. However, there are many guns that are too big to carry inside your clothes and therefore must be held in the open. You will not be able to pick up a gun of the same size or greater without dropping the one you are holding. You will find other guns on the same level that you cannot pick up because you are already holding one, and the gun you want is simply too big to conceal. In this case, you will have to decide which gun you want more then finish the level with it. You can always replay that level to get the other gun that was left behind.
Pick locks quicker:
Pick a lock, look at your map, and exit. The lock will be picked.
While walking, rapidly tap [Run]. If done correctly, you will be still in a walking position, but doing quick dashes and the guards will not notice.
When playing in any level, just run or sneak up to an enemy and fight him with your fists. He will soon be out cold. Once he is, use any gun to shoot him anywhere on his body. He will not get back up.
While using the fibre wire, using anesthetic, or changing clothes, press [Map] twice to complete the action instantly.
Hold two pistols at once:
Take out the pistol that you want in your right hand and drop it. Next, take out your Ballers and also drop them. Then, take out the pistol you want in your left hand. Pick up your Ballers and your gun should switch hands. Finally, pick up the last gun and you should be holding two pistols. The sawn-off shotgun can also be used for this.
Running knife attack:
Change to first person view and use the knife. You can attack while running if you press [Attack] many times.
When at your home area with the shed of guns, you may shoot down the birds either on the ground or while they fly in the air. Each bird that is shot will fall to its corresponding area and remain there until you leave the level. You can also shoot the pigs in their pen.
Using the Methoxyfluorane (Anesthetic):
Equip the Anesthetic and go to your target person. Hold [Fire] as long as desired. While using it, you will automatically use two bottles, or if held longer, you can use three to five bottles. Each bottle will result in one minute of unconsciousness. Be careful or he will tell the guards about you. You can also take their clothes, but if they wake up without them they will tell the guards.
Silent Assassin ranks:
You can still get a "Silent Assassin" rank on a mission if you are spotted. To get a "Silent Assassin" rank, there has to be nothing in the aggression bar. You can make sure of this by only using chloroform on guards and eliminating the target with just one shot.
Press [F2] and equip any gun. Aim it at an enemy, slightly far from them. It will turn red. Shoot and the bullet will follow the enemy, but only if the aim is red. Note: This is useful for locating enemies behind walls.
First person mode:
Press [F1] and you will be in first person mode. This is quite dangerous to your missions because enemies will think you are pointing a gun at them and shoot you, which will alarm any nearby guards. Note: When you get the pizza in the Basement Killing level, switch to first person mode and look at the pizza.
Enable the IOINGUN code and pin a person to the wall. Try to drag them and their arms will stretch like elastic.
On any level, enable the IONIGUN code. Kill someone and drag them by their arms or legs. Pull them as far as you can, then release. They will automatically let go like a slingshot.
Enable the IOINGUN code and make a man stick to a wall at a reachable height. Walk over to him, press [Drag], then walk backwards. The person will be stretched out.
This is fairly awkward to do, but can be very useful. You will need Ballers and two other pistols (for example, the revolver and Deagle). First, drop the Ballers and Deagle, and equip the revolver. Move so that the Ballers and Deagle are on the right hand side of the player on the floor. Pick the Ballers up. This will put the revolver into your left hand and the Ballers into your inventory. Next, pick up the Deagle (making sure it is still on your right side before you do). Your player should now have the revolver in his left hand and the Deagle in his right. You can now fire the Deagle continuously without having to reload.
47 drives with a weapon:
In the level where you have to kill the Don, do all necessary objectives. Then, when you go to escape in the car, select a weapon and start shooting it. While shooting, press [Action], to open the door. 47 will drive with the weapon in his hands. Note: This was done in the demo version of the game.
Invitation To A Party: Reload a rifle like a pistol:
Grab a rifle, holster it, then grab the suitcase. Fire at an enemy or at anything else. Reload, and the rifle will reload like a pistol, which is much longer if you have an SP12 Shotgun as a rifle. However, it will sound like you are reloading it as a rifle.
