What are the Cities Skylines 2 cheats? Tinkering with games is something that people have done since the early days of the hobby, and city-building games such as the SimCity and Cities Skylines series are no exception. The original Cities Skylines had a handful of cheats in its time, but from the looks of things, Cities Skylines 2 cheats aren’t a thing.

However, that’s not to say there aren’t ways to get effects that could be considered the same as activating Cities Skylines 2 cheats. Management games such as Cities Skylines 2 have lots of complicated mechanics, and you still have to contend with the Cities Skylines 2 traffic problems whenever they arise, but at least it’s easier as you can throw limitless amounts of cash at the problem.

Are there any Cities Skylines 2 cheats?

Technically, in the sense of Cities Skylines 2 cheat codes, none have been found right now. We tried using the same activation code in the Steam launch options to enable the game’s console commands to see if that worked, but this didn’t have the desired effect. However, that doesn’t mean that some former cheat codes aren’t now separate menu options.

When you start a new game, you have some toggleable boxes, including ones to “Unlock All” technology from the start of the game and one to give you “Unlimited Money”. Turning these on will turn off achievements, so use them with caution. These are already two of the four more useful cheats that were part of the original game, but there’s no sign of the cheats giving you unlimited oil, ore, or soil, nor is there any way to change the difficulty.
