Cheats – Mega Man 2

There are many glitches within Mega Man 2, good glitches that help the player I should say.  However, I’m going to focus on some standard Mega Man tips and passwords that should help any player.


Preferential Order

So whilst not strictly a cheat this will definitely come in handy to those who are new to the Mega Man games.  Here is a recommended order to tackle the bosses, alongside each boss’s weakness.  There’s a lot of them so take a deep breath, here goes:

01 Metal Man – Use Mega Buster

02 Wood Man – Use Metal Blades

03 Flash Man – Use Metal Blades

04 Bubble Man – Use Metal Blades

05 Air Man – Use Leaf Shield

06 Crash Man – Use Air Shooter

07 Quick Man – Use Crash Bombs

08 Heat Man – Use Bubble Lead

09 Dragon – Use Quick Boomerangs

10 Guts Dozer – Use Metal Blades

11 Wall Shooters – Use Crash Bombs

12 Dr. Wily UFO – Use Metal Blades

13 Dr. Wily Alien – Use Bubble Lead


Never Get Hit

Again not another cheat but certainly helpful.  Due to Mega Man’s teleportation following a pause.  Repeatedly pausing the game will cause enemy fire to pass right through Mega Man.


Passwords

These passwords will take you wherever you want, and with whatever you want.  Here comes the ultimate list of passwords for Mega Man 2.
