How to Open and Use the Cheat Command Console in Starfield

To use the cheat command console in Starfield, press the Tilde (~) key on your keyboard. You’ll open a box where you can type in or copy-paste your desired command, allowing you to perform actions you otherwise could not do, such as turning on God Mode to take zero damage from enemies.

Depending on the intensity of the command and how often you use it, you may also run into crashing issues or other game-breaking bugs. Make sure to create a new save before experimenting with cheats just in case unexpected problems arise.

Below are the filters you can use after the help command:

  • 0 – All
