Easter Egg
Part I: The American Dream
Chapter Two: Live from the Crime Scene
Right at the beginning, there is a hole in the bricks in the wall. Cheat yourself a grenade and throw it in. Your mission objectives now say "I had declared a war against rats". A bit later, after walking through some water and taking out a few enemies on a train platform, walk up the wide stairs. In the room at the top are a bunch of rats... with Desert Eagles! Now shoot at one of the ceiling lamps that's off. Hit the base of the lamp and it will fall. The rats will now battle each other. If "your" side wins, the remaining rats will take up defensive positions around you. If your side loses, the remaining rats will come after you.

Chapter Two: Live from the Crime Scene
You can shoot the wailing siren in the central vault area and Max will thank you.

Chapter Three: Playing it Bogart
If you walk past Rico Muerte's room to the end of the hall, you can shoot away a boarded-up door. From this room you can walk across the ledge and shoot away a boarded up window to find a dead body with a stake in it lying next to the word "Buff" in blood (as in "Buffy the Vampire Slayer"), as well as some other goodies.

Chapter Six: Fear That Gives Men Wings
As you ride the elevator up from Luigi's Laundry, shooting the speaker playing sappy elevator music will bring another "Thank you" from Max. Shortly thereafter, as you leave out the window from the room sporting the thug in the bathroom and the TV news report, walk to the left and there will be a window you can jump through to a room with two Soldier of Fortune 2 posters and a stash of shotguns. If you didn't destroy the elevator speaker earlier, you should be able to hear the music from within this room.

Chapter Seven: Police Brutality
When Gognitti reaches the locked door, there is a satellite dish behind you on the ledge. If you jump from this corner to the ledge across the alley, you can drop down into the fenced area and open a door to a room with a nice assortment of ammo and a poster proclaiming "Dopefish Lives!" Dopefish is quite possibly the most prolific character in Easter Egg history.

Chapter Seven: Police Brutality
At the basketball court, there is a Beretta stuck in the net. Also, if you wait by the fence, an SUV wil drive by. If you shoot it, it will crash and the driver will get out to shoot at you.

Chapter Eight: Ragna Rock
When you reach the inner stage area, you can "use" the drum kit and microphone and step on the guitar for some interesting effects and dialogue.

Part II: A Cold Day In Hell

Chapter Five: Angel of Death
When you reach the grand piano, you can "use" it and Max will play the title theme. You can get a different effect by shooting out the lid support and trying again.

Part IV: A Bit Closer To Heaven

Chapter Four: Backstabbing Bastard
At the entrance ramp to the car park (from where you start), there is a stack of barrels and an air conditioning unit that you can jump on to reach the roof of the garage. Shoot the off-color panel of the shed there and it will fall away. Inside, you can jump on a grate to fall into a room with the grafitti "R Thanks", a radio you can "use" to hear audio from the production team, and a sniper rifle with ammo.

Chapter Five: In the Land of the Blind
In the small room after Woten's office (where you find the Aesir building plans), there is a small picture that you can shoot off the wall, revealing a button. Pressing it will raise the couch on the other side of the room, revealing a staircase down to a "private area". In it there is a big screen TV you can use to play a 3DRealms-themed parody of Star Trek. In the adjoining room there is a bed with chains next to a closet full of bondage gear.
Secret Finale Ending
To access it, enter the following in the developer console:

maxpayne_gamemode->gm_sendendofgamemessages( );

Unlimited Bullet Time:
Assign shootdodge under controls in the options menu to keypad 1. During the game, you can hit this key to slow the action down any time you want. Repeatedly press it and it will slow things down even further to the point of pausing the action. Pressing keypad 7, will speed the action back up. There is no time limit for how long the action is slowed down.

Alternate egos

By pressing Keypad 9 or 3 you can change the character Max plays during the game. Be aware that some weapons may not be available to you during the time you are using these alternate characters.

Level Warp:

By pressing keypad 0, you can warp to different areas of the level, or "chapter," and at the same time you could be standing right in front of enemies and they will not even notice you.

Pump Action Shotgun:
You can get a pump-action shotgun right in Max's house at the very beginning. The shotgun is hidden in his house, on the opposite wall of the phone, in a shutter closet, much like the one that you see right when you get in the house near the door. Open the one farther away from the adjacent room, and you will get a pump-action shotgun with 5 rounds.

Life After Death:
After you die, use the console and put yourself in god mode. Max will then come back to life and you can move him around and shoot while a semi stationary camera follows the action. It's kind of hard to see where Max is going because of the camera but it's kind of a neat trick.

Tutorial Easter Egg:

In the Tutorial, jump on top of the van with the sniper rifle inside, then jump on the ventilation thingy next to the fire escape, then jump on the fire escape. Climb up to the top and shoot the windows and walk through. A message says, "Congratulations, you have discovered a secret room!" There is an Ingram, some Ingram ammo, and 5 molotov cocktails.
