Perhaps you want to nab a nice screenshot and need to move the camera to get the best angle, or maybe you want to move yourself through teleportation. Then there's the slightly more noble action of bringing NPCs back to life. Whatever the reason for using them, Fallout 4 cheats make the post-apocalyptic world your oyster.

You can unlock the console by pressing the tilde key (~), which allows you to change your stats, speed up time, and spawn monsters or weapons with the simple press of a key. Simply activate the console, type in the command, hit Enter and close the console and watch as the cheat takes effect. It's worth noting that the tilde key might not work, depending on your keyboards regional settings—in which case, try the apostrophe key instead.

Now, with all the technical stuff out of the way, here's a list of all the Fallout 4 cheats and console commands.

Fallout 4 cheats and console commands

Fallout 4 toggle and debug console commands

Fallout 4 toggle and debug console commands

  • tgm — Toggles god mode, our old friend.
  • tcl — Toggles collision. Walk through walls. Walk into the sky. Be free.
  • tfc — Activates free camera.
  • tfc 1 — Same as above, but freezes all animations. Great for screenshots.
  • tm — Toggles menus and UI on and off. It even stops you from seeing the console, so you'll have to press tilde and type tm again blind to get the UI back.
  • csb — Resets blood splatter/explosion dust/etc. screen effects.
  • fov [first-person FOV] [third-person FOV] — Change the FOV. Enter 0 for either to reset to default.
  • set timescale to [insert number here] — Speeds up or slows down time. The default setting is 16. 1 is realtime, 10,000 is crazy spectacular timelapse.
  • coc [cell id] – Teleports the player to an area, e.g. "coc RedRocketExt." Cell IDs can be found here.

Fallout 4 player and item console commands

A few of the cheats below will require you to know the game's ID number for specific items. To learn how to get the IDs you need, check the "How to Find IDs" section below.

Fallout 4 player and inventory console commands

  • showlooksmenu player 1 — Reopens the character customization menu so you can change your look. You'll want to have your character's face centered on screen for this one.
  • player.setrace [race id] — Change your race (e.g. ghoul, mutant). Find race IDs with the help function, but beware of adverse side effects (most races just make it crash).
  • player.resethealth — Resets your health.
  • setgs fJumpHeightMin [insert number here] — Modifies your jump. Set it really high to vault over buildings like the Incredible Hulk. Warning: If you don't turn on god mode, the falling damage from your own jump will kill you.
  • tdetect — The AI won't detect you anymore. Steal to your heart's content.
  • player.modav [skill] [number] — Boost a skill by a numerical amount of your choosing. E.g. player.modav strength 10 will boost your strength by ten points.
  • player.setav [character variable] [number] — Sets a character trait to a new value. Unlike modav, this will unlock perks when you change your stats.
  • player.setav speedmult [insert number here] — Adds a multiplier to your running speed, with hilarious consequences.
  • player.setlevel [insert number] — Boost your level to the number specified.
  • player.additem [item ID] [number] — Add an item to your inventory. (See above for instructions for finding IDs.)

For a lot of these commands, you'll need to know how to get the IDs of items, NPCs, as well as the names of locations and factions. With the console open, clicking on a character or item will show its ID. Additionally, many commands act on the targeted character—so, whoever you clicked on. Sometimes it can be tricky to get the right ID to pop up (it's easy to select yourself accidentally), so using free cam (tfc) can help.

You can also look up commands and IDs:
