Here, we’ll take a look at some of the Guitar Hero World Tour secret codes, how to enter them, as well as some unlockable characters from the game.
GHWT Secret Codes
Guitar Hero World Tour secret codes allow for certain conditions to happen during gameplay. These cheats are usually in place to not only enhance the game, but give some challenges to the player or players. To enable cheat mode - that is, to enter in cheats for that session - on the main menu of the game, got to OPTIONS, then CHEATS. When prompted to enter a new cheat, enter one of the following.
Performance Mode - performance mode is the ultimate act of not only knowing a song, but knowing the vocals, kicks, and rhythms. This takes away all on screen notes and lyrics, allowing players to see how well they know a song. The code for this is YELLOW YELLOW BLUE RED BLUE GREEN RED RED.
Auto Kick - for drummers who find trying to maintain playing and using the bass pedal an ordeal, especially on harder songs. This secret code allows for the kick to be done automatically, however it also disables gaining any money, so this is best used when just wanting to play songs. The code for this is YELLOW GREEN RED BLUE BLUE BLUE BLUE RED
Unlocking characters within GHWT is easily done, usually by playing and finishing a song noted by eiher the artist or their band. Once
you have met the conditions, you must purchase the character at the “Select Your Rocker” screen with your available money to use the character in the game.

The Guitar Hero Word Tour secret codes make playing the game even greater and more challenging than that of the game itself.
