Are There Cheats Built Into Dragon Ball: Xenoverse 2?
There are no cheats built into Dragon Ball: Xenoverse 2. However, there are plenty of unlockables, meaning that people who love secrets should have no problems finding something to satisfy them.
What Are Some Unlockables in Dragon Ball: Xenoverse 2
For starters, it should be noted that there are various transformations that can be unlocked for the player’s use. Some of these transformations can be used by any character. In contrast, other transformations are restricted to characters of particular species. For example, players can unlock the Kaioken by completing the Ultimate Finish in Parallel Quest 08.
In contrast, it is possible to unlock Super Saiyan for a Saiyan character by completing “Saiyan Awakening” at the Capsule Corporation at Level 40 before talking to Vegeta, Bulma, Kid Trunks, and then Vegeta. There are other options for the other species such as Giant Form for Nameks, Purification for Majins, and Power Pole Pro for Earthlings.
Moving on, there is secret endgame content that can be unlocked by collecting five Distorted Time Eggs before handing them over to the Supreme Kai of Time in the Time Nest. One can be collected by completing the “Great Saiyaman” quests before talking to Hercule, while another can be collected by completing the “Sparring with Vegeta: Advanced” mission before talking to Bulma. A third can be picked up by speaking with Guru upon winning 15 separate defenses of Guru’s House.
Finally, the fourth Distorted Time Egg is found by feeding food to Majin Buu until he has six family members before speaking with said character, while the fifth Distorted Time Egg is found by turning either Frieza into Golden Frieza or Cooler into Metal Cooler before visiting the Frieza henchman with the question mark. Once this is complete, the player will have the chance to play through the “Unknown History” mission for the chance to secure the “Defiance in the Face of Despair!!” trophy.
Of course, it should be mentioned that there are a lot of characters that can be unlocked in Dragon Ball: Xenoverse 2, so much so that filling out the roster is a process that is use up hours and hours of time. First, it is possible to unlock many characters by just playing through the story mode of the game, with examples including but not limited to Adult Gohan, Majin Buu, Bardock, Towa, and Future Trunks. Second, there are a bunch of quests that can be completed to unlock more characters. For example, beating Parallel Quests 57 and 81 will unlock the haloed and non-haloed versions of Gogeta.
Likewise, Parallel Quest 56 is the mission that must be completed to unlock Hercule. On top of this, it should be mentioned that beating the “Unknown History” mission can be used to unlock Super Saiyan 3 Bardock, which makes sense considering its contents.
Unlock Broly as an instructor
First, defeat Broly in Story mode. He appears a few times in the story. Complete the Buu Saga, then search for Broly. He can be found hovering around the area where you collect Parallel Quests, in between there at the World Tournament area. Fly close to Broly, and he will attack you. Defeat Broly, and you will return to Conton City. Refresh the city to make Broly available as an instructor. To refresh the city, you can either do a quick mission or just create a Parallel Quest lobby and leave to load back into the city. Note: You must be “God” rank before you can train with Broly, as he does not appear before that.
The Flying Nimbus
In Conton City, fly up just above the floating islands and search around the city (in the Namekian’s area, between the Patroller’s School and Mushroom area) for a flying character named “Oba”. Talk to him to get The Flying Nimbus, which is one of the vehicles you can use to float around Conton City.
Vegeta’s alternate training armor

To enter Frieza’s Spaceship, reach Level 20 and give Appule a Med-Mix Capsule.
Infinite Dragon Balls
Dragon Balls are the most useful and iconic item in the game. There are seven of them in total. Once you have found all seven, Shenron can be summoned at the Dragon Ball Pedestal. He will grant you a wish. You will get the “I Summon You Forth: Shenron!” trophy for making a wish. You need to do this several times to unlock all characters in the game. Always wish for a new playable character to unlock them all and get the “I’ve Come For You!” trophy. Use the following method to get Dragon Balls easily:
1. Play Parallel Quest #04: “Prepare For The Attack Of Saiyans!”
2. Defeat the first three enemies as quickly as possible.
3. A portal will appear, and shortly afterwards a group of Time Patrollers will spawn. Stay in the starting area; do not go through portal yet.
4. Challenge the Time Patrollers to a fight and defeat them. Time Patrollers always drop one of three item types: materials, equipment, and key items. Look for key items, as they are always Dragon Balls. It will display the type of drop at the bottom of the screen. If you get a key item, finish the quest. If you do not get a key item, immediately restart the quest and try again.
This method allows you to get one Dragon Ball approximately every three playthroughs — roughly one every five minutes. You should be able to farm all seven Dragon Balls within 30-60 minutes. It works online and offline.
Easy food for Majin Buu
Feeding Majin Buu at his house will make him bear children. You gain access to this area after making some progress in the story. When he has six children, he will give you a Distorted Time Egg, which is needed for the secret ending and to reach 100% completion for the story. Feeding his children can also provide some nice rewards, such as new clothing and Super Souls. Feed a child multiple times for him or her to change colors and unlock a trophy. You get food from collecting Blue Orbs in Canton City. Collect some Blue Orbs, then complete one fight for everything to respawn. Repeat this as many times as desired.
