Fallout 4 console commands and cheats

Bethesda's take on Boston is a great time, but here's how you can hack your way to making it the Sanctuary you deserve

What Fallout console commands are there? Fallout 4 is a game with a thousand systems all clicking and whirring driving 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.

The following Fallout 4 cheats encompass pretty much every, really: you can turn on god mode, or become an actual god by deciding who lives and dies, even without the massive energy weapon you’ve painstakingly crafted. And, speaking of laser-powered boomsticks, you can magic those into the game via console commands in Fallout 4, too.

If you’re looking for specific add-ons rather than outright hacks for Bethesda’s Bostonian setting, you will almost certainly find joy in our list of Fallout 4 mods. But, if it’s Fallout 4 cheats and console commands you’re looking for, this guide has your covered when it comes to how you enter them, and the tweaks you have at your disposal.

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.

Here are the best Fallout 4 console commands and cheats by category:

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 and your character remains alive (albeit with reduced perception due to having no eyes).

No Collision
tcl
Turns off the collision detection. This means 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 4, just use this command to set your character’s level.

Set Skill Level
player.modav <skillID> <#>
Increases a specified 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 currentlyhave 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 Gen 1 Synths.

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.

Kill Everyone
killall
Murders everyone in your immediate area, other than companions and vital characters.

Kill Someone
kill <targetID>
Murders the creature or character whose ID you have typed in.

Resurrect Someone
resurrect <targetID>
Revives the creature or character whose ID you have typed in.

Free Roam Camera
tfc
Toggles on and off the free flying camera, which allows you to grab some really good vantage points for screenshots. Think of this like a photo mode of sorts.

Toggle UI
tm
Toggles on and off the menus and the user interface in the game. This is ideal for grabbing screenshots without the HUD cluttering everything up. Combine with the Free Roam Camera command for some cinematic screens!

Complete Every Main Quest
caqs
Completes every quest in the main storyline. Naturally, this will spoil the story, so don’t use it if you haven’t completed the game.

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 <#>
Sets a 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.

Every Item in a Box
coc qasmoke
This command teleports you to a room full of boxes, like an apocalyptic edition of Deal or No Deal. Inside each box is one of every single item in the game.

Teleport to an Area
coc <cell id>
Teleports you to a specified area.

Customise Character
showlooksmenu player 1
Opens up the character customisation screen, thus allowing you to redesign your appearance on the fly.

Ally with a faction
player.AddToFaction <faction id> <0 or 1>
Sets your status as an ally with a faction. Use ‘0’ for ‘friendly’ or ‘1’ for allied.

Become enemies with a faction
setenemy <faction id> <0 or 1>
Sets your status as an enemy with a faction. Use ‘0’ for neutral or ‘1’ for enemies.

Remove from faction
player.RemoveFromFaction <faction id>

Removes your allied status with all factions in the world.
