PlayStation 2

Level Warp

select any area in the game, press Circle to exit menu after warp.

Level 10 character

Hold [L1] + [R1] + [Triangle] + [Square] + [Circle] + [X] and press [L2] during game play. Your current character will now be at level 10, with 45 feat points and 500,000 gold. To use this code again, save the game, reload the game, return to the title screen, and repeat it.

Easy gold and experience

In some situations, your character may be awarded a prize of 1,000 gold and 1,000 experience points. However, before you claim a prize, save the game and get your award. Load a previously saved game before you get your gold and experience points. Then, load the character that already has the gold and experience points. Keep repeating this processes to get a lot of gold and experience points.

To get 1,000 experience points and 1,000 gold an unlimited number of times, enable the "Cheat mode" code. Level warp to "BGate2". Talk to Randola Brasshorn and she will give you 1,000 experience points and 1,000 gold for bringing her to Baldur's Gate. After you get your reward, you will be warped to "BGate1". Warp back to BGate2 and talk to Randola Brasshorn to earn another 1,000 experience points and 1,000 gold. Repeat these steps as many times as desired.

Easy bonus characters

To play a Drizzt or Artemis easily, enable the "Cheat mode" code, then use the level warp cheat to go to the BGate3 map for Drizzt. Do the same under the extreme difficulty setting for for Artemis.

Start an extreme game with previous items

This will start an extreme mode game with the items on a non-extreme save. First start a new extreme game and load the character you want. Then go to change players and start up a new player 2 character. After the 2nd player loads, remove player 1. Once that's done import the character that you just removed into the player 2 slot (A message about importing characters will pop up, just continue). When its done loading you should have the character loaded with all his/her items from that save. Next just remove the player 1 charater and you're done.

Easy stat increase

This is a combination of two different methods. First go to the person who will sell your character experience, then enable the "Level 10 character" code. Then, level up to level 12. To do this you may have to use an alternate save after you finish buying experience, then reloading the save before buying experience and importing the character. Now that you are level twelve, select your stat increase then save the game in an alternate save slot. Next, continue as if you were to level again but before you talk to your NPC, enable the "Level 10 character" code. You will now be back to level 10. Level back up to level 12, then get your next stat increase. Repeat this as often as desired. Note: It seems necessary to load from the main menu before using the "Level 10 character" code, as the game seems to limit it to once per game.

Loading Screen Trick

While the game is loading and you see the text Loading, use the R3 analog stick to move the flames left, right or up.

Level 10, 45 skill points, 500,000.

Press and hold L1 + R1 + Triangle + Square + Circle + X. While still holding them, press L2.

Easy experience

Before speaking to one of the experience ''sellers'' (example, the dwarf in the Purple Wyrm that will give the dwarf experience for gold), save your game. Speak to him, and ''buy'' the 2000, 4000, 8000, and 16000 exp quest reward. Save your game in a new slot, then load the first one, and import your character from the second one. Your character will have all the benefits of having gotten the quest reward, and will be able to get them all over again. Repeat as desired. A sufficient supply of gold is necessary for this glitch.

Extreme Mode

Beat the game on any difficulty to unlock Extreme Mode

Easy gold

Note: This trick takes awhile to complete. Enable the "Level 10 character" code. Go to the trader and buy as many rubies as you can. Save the game, then quit. Reload that game then repeat those steps. After you feel you have enough rubies, you can sell them back to the trader. Depending on how many you sell, you can make quite a lot of money. For example, if you buy 2,000 rubies, you can sell them for close to 3 million gold It is best to use this trick before you advance past level 10 or you will be low in HP.

Infinite Health

Take no damage, but if you fall into a pit, you will be stuck.

Make Lyran disappear!

Under Act 2 of the game, when you get to Lyran's Hold and find your way into his Private Study, Lyran will appear (as a Lich) and will follow and attack you. Normally, you'd want to avoid him and get down to the cellar ASAP. However, you don't need to!

Just run out of his study with him following, then Recall back to Baldur's Gate. When you Recall back again, he ain't there anymore! Now, you can toddle down to the cellar at your own pace.

This was discovered on the European (PAL) version.
