As with previous Driver games, Parallel Lines contains hidden cheat codes, which can be unlocked by entering the following codes into the cheat menu:
Note: All codes can be turned on and off except All cars and All guns.
|All guns from era||GUNRANGE|
During gameplay you will notice that there is an odometer below your speedometer, this will always stay the same when outside a vehicle, and will not reset when you enter a new vehicle. When your odometer reaches a certain amount, a 'cheat' is then unlocked under the cheat menu, which can be enabled and disabled at will. The odometer readings needed and their effects are listed below.
666 miles: Body Snatcher - This allows you to take the visual form of almost any character. All you have to do is melee attack a pedestrian, and you will take on their form.
NOTE: It is recommended that you do not save your game with this cheat active, this includes auto-saving
700 miles: Night Night - Once enabled, it will become immediately night, and will remain as such for as long as the code is active
800 miles: Shortest day - This speeds up the game time, to which one game day is only 24 seconds real-time
900 miles: Far Out - Once enabled, motion blur skyrockets, making it very difficult to drive, when the code is disabled, the effect ceases
