How Do I Use My Cheat Codes?

Update Your Game!

Make sure you have the most up-to-date version of Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove! For directions on how to update your game, please check out our update guide!

Activating Your Cheats

Cheats are always entered at the game’s start as it’s impossible to alter a game that is already in progress. If the cheat impacts gameplay, it will disable unlocking Feats for that profile.

When creating a new profile, enter an Arby’s launcher token cheat as the name.

This code is an example and not a part of the collaboration! If you want to use it anyway, go for it!

If a cheat was entered successfully, you’ll see this confirmation prompt.

After you confirm that you’d like to use the cheat, you’ll receive an on screen activation prompt.

After confirming, enter your profile name!

Note: You can only enter a single cheat per profile.


We are incredibly excited to finally announce this collaboration! We hope you have as much fun as we did creating the codes!
