The debug menu from the first game also is left within game code here. However, it still does not work.

Two unused multiplayer maps can be selected by using the Level Select Menu. Choosing MP2 BASE and MP7 LIVING ROOM will bring you to these maps. These both contain a bazooka in the middle of the map. You can't fall out of bounds either. The internal names for these maps are MP CASHIER and MP POOL respectively.

Enter THDTST as a cheat. Once entered, the message "Test Info" will be displayed, confirming the code input.

Version GameShark code
US 8015D3B7 0001

Here's an overview of what these values refer to:

Value Reference
896 X Position
290 Z Position
814 Y Position
126 Facing Direction (out of 360°)
0 ???
892 X Position (Alternate 1)
290 Z Position (Alternate 1)
818 Y Position (Alternate 1)
900 X Position (Alternate 2)
309 Z Position (Alternate 2)
810 Y Position (Alternate 2)

The alternate X/Y/Z positions track certain parts of the player's body, whereas the main set refers to the entire body.

First Level Password

Oddly there is a password that sends you to the first level. Of course, selecting Campaign for the first time automatically sends you to this level.

Password Effect
HNGRPNS DINNER

Unused Multiplayer Character

Unused Trooper Multi Character.

The Trooper multi character is present in the digits, but not normally playable in multiplayer. This is likely leftover from the original Sarge's Heroes, which had a Trooper.

Also it appears that 0xC was supposed to be Tannenberg in multi, but the digit crashes the game when used.
