Fallout 4 console commands and cheats

Fallout 4 cheats and console commands

Fallout 4 is a game with a thousand systems all clicking and whirring behind its Boston wasteland. Since you’re playing the game on PC, those systems are easily exploited by typing a few things into the game’s developer console. If you’re feeling like you’d like to make a few tweaks to how the game plays, or even just simply ‘magic’ up a few free items into your inventory by cheating, then these Fallout 4 console commands are exactly what you need.

First time here? Be sure to check out our homepage for news, reviews, features, and everything else you need to know about PC games.

How do you enter Fallout 4 commands?

To use Fallout 4’s commands, you’ll need to open the developer console screen. This is easily done by tapping the tilde (~) key, which can be found under the Esc key, and just to the left of the 1 key on an American English keyboard. If you’re using a British English keyboard, you’ll need to tap the grave (`) key, which is located in the same place. 

When typing in console commands, remember that commands are not case sensitive, so don’t worry about caps lock. You’ll find that many commands will have a section that says something like <itemID> <#>. In these cases, do not type the <> brackets, nor the #. Instead, type out the name of the item you want, and follow up by replacing the # with the number of items you require.

Fallout 4 PC Cheats and Console Commands

God Mode
tgm
Turns on god mode, making you invincible. Type the command into the console again to turn it off. 

Immortal Mode
tim
Turns on immortal mode, which allows you to take damage, but never die. This can lead to glitches such as your head being removed, but your character still remaining alive (albeit with reduced perception due to having no eyes). 

No Collision
tcl
Turns off collision detection, so you can walk through walls, or even defy gravity. Type the command into the console again to turn it off. 

Set Player Level
player.setlevel <#>
If you want to bypass the levelling system of Fallout, just use this command to set your character’s level. 

Set Skill Level
player.modav <skillID> <#>
Increases a S.P.E.C.I.A.L skill by the specified number. 

Show all Map Markers
tmm 1
Marks all locations on the Pip-Boy map.

Unlock Door or Terminal
unlock
Unlocks the door or terminal you have targeted. 

Add Item to Inventory
player.additem <itemID> <#>
Adds a specified number of the specified item to your inventory. For example, to add 100 caps to your inventory, type: player.additem 0000000F 100

Spawn Item or NPC nearby
player.placeatme <objectID>
Spawns the specified item or NPC close to your current location. 

Toggle AI
tai
Turns off the artificial intelligence of NPCs, leaving them dumber than gen1 synthetics. 

Toggle Combat AI
tcai
Turns off the combat artificial intelligence of enemies, rendering them incapable of attacking. 

Toggle Detection AI
tdetect
Turns off the AI’s ability to detect you, making stealing things or sneaking as easy as walking.

Fallout 4 cheats and console commands

Free Roam Camera
tfc
Toggles on and off the free flying camera, which allows you to grab some really good vantage points for screenshots. 

Toggle UI
tm
Toggles on and off the menus and user interface in the game, ideal for grabbing screenshots without the HUD cluttering everything up. 

Complete Every Main Quest

Completes every quest in the main storyline. Naturally, this will spoil the story. 

Reset Quest
resetquest <Quest ID>
Resets the specified quest back to the start. 

Jump High
setgs fjumpheightmin <#>
Sets the height of your jump. The higher the number, the higher your jump. Set it too high though, and the fall back to earth will kill you. Consider combining with god mode. 

Run Fast
player.setav speedmult <#>
Assa s multiplier to your running speed. Add a high number to turn into The Flash and become the fastest person alive. You probably won’t be alive if you run into something though, so proceed with caution (or god mode). 

Grow Big
setscale <1-10>
Makes you, or your target, very big. The higher the number, the bigger they get. 

Set Timescale
set timescale to <#>
Sets the speed of the passage of time. The game is default set at 16. Use 1 for real time progression, and up to 10,000 for days that go by in the blink of an eye.

showlooksmenu player 1
Opens up the character customisation screen, allowing you to redesign your appearance.

Fallout 4 and Skyrim are both built using similar technology, so many of Skyrim's console commands work with Fallout 4. If you can't find the command your looking for here, try a Skyrim console command instead. It may just work!

Remember that on the UK keyboard, you need to hit ', not ¬.

It's under @ and between ; and #

You don't have to add the 00[...] when you spawn items or do anything else with references. In fact, you only have to enter it from the first number that isn't 0. Just FYI.

Interestingly, having been in the guts of it myself, it's actually much more simple than any prior game. Extra especially in the dialog systems. It doesn't have the complexities of a billion checked variables. That's why a.) it's less buggy, and b.) it's also causing modders hell with its varied and annoying restrictions that don't really make any sense.

They only used a byte for the amount of FormID addresses that all of the crafting systems could use. A byte! They used a byte and genuinely believed that would be enough. Good grief. I have issues with the game as a game, as I mentioned in my last post, but I also have issues with it as a modifiable platform.

Even Fallout NV's bug that limits you to 139 plugins (which can be worked around with intelligent mod merging) is nowhere near the intense and unrepentant shackling involved in Fallout 4. Many of the most beloved quest, crafting, and building mods from prior Fallouts would be impossible with it is as it is now. It's something that's going to have to be fixed up with F4SE, I imagine. Though even then, some of the restrictions...

Not a fan. It's the least open Gamebryo game yet. It's still very open, of course, and a damn sight better than many other games for modding. But when the game itself is so incredibly lacklustre, dull, and devoid of imagination and you might be buying it for the modding alone? It's a real concern.

And don't take it from me. Head on over to the Nexus and listen to the complaints and the crazy workarounds people have had to come up with to deal with the nonsensical restrictions.

Bethesda's attachment to the byte is more ludicrous than Bill Gates' supposed attachment to 640k. Though it works in their favour with their new 'games as a service' model, which is really just a return to Oblivion's nickel-and-diming.
