PC cheats

Console cheats

Press [~] to open the command line, where you can type the cheats. When typing cheats, the keyboard may be considered as a QWERTY keyboard, so you may want to have a look at the QWERTY layout to find the keys. The cheats are case-insensitive. Interestingly, most of these cheats work in Fallout New Vegas too (even lots of item codes are the same).

  • tgm: toggles god mode
  • tcl: toggles noclip
  • tmm1: reveals all map markers
  • player.setlevel X: sets your level to X
  • player.forceav [skill/spec] X: sets your [skill/spec] to X, where [skill/spec] is the full name of a skill or of a S.P.E.C.I.A.L. stat
  • modpca [spec] X: adds X points to your [spec] S.P.E.C.I.A.L. stat (where [spec] is the full name of the stat, e.g. "luck", "strength", "charisma", etc)
  • modpcs [skill] X: adds X points to your [skill] (where [skill] is the full name of the skill)
  • addspecialpoints X: adds X SPECIAL points
  • addtagskills X: adds X Tag! Skill points
  • advlevel: levels up your character. NB: as it's currently fashionable in single player RPGs, the strength of enemies will increase as you gain levels. So handle with care.
  • player.additem [id] [n]: adds [n] number of the item whose ID is [id] (NB: leading zeros can be committed, for instance "player.additem 000000f 1" and "player.additem f 1" add the same item). For example: "player.additem 2937e 200" adds 200 .44 Round, Magnum to your inventory. Here is a little list of good items. For a much bigger (exhaustive?) list of items, browse the "All items" category on the Fallout wiki.
    • Bottlecaps (caps): 000000f (so to get 5,000 caps, use "player.additem f 5000")
    • Mysterious Stranger's .44 Magnum (a very powerful and accurate revolver, only available using this cheat[7]): 50f92
    • .44 Round, Magnum (ammo for the above-mentioned weapon): 2937e
    • Boogeyman's Hood (a good helmet which doesn't require Power Armor Training to wear): 8f775
    • Ranger Battle Armor (a good armor which doesn't require Power Armor Training to wear): 23030
    • One of the best armor and helmet (requires Power Armor Training): T-51b Power Armor 000a6f77 and T-51b Power Helmet 000a6f78
    • Bobby Pin (lock pick): 0000a
    • Sniper Rifle 00004353 and ammo for it (.308 Caliber Round) 0006b53c
  • setpccanusepowerarmor [0/1]: lets you use Power Armor as if you had completed Power Armor Training if set to 1. However, this doesn't add the perk to your perk list, and you should turn it off before actually training for the perk.
  • GetQuestCompleted: completes the current quest
  • getXPfornextlevel: displays XP needed to reach the next level
  • help: lists all console commands
  • removefromallfactions: removes yourself from all factions
  • rewardKarma X: adds X Karma points
  • setspecialpoints X: sets SPECIAL points to X
  • settagskills X: sets Tag! Skill points to X
  • tdt: toggles debug display
  • tlv: toggles leaves
  • set timescale to X: sets the timescale to X. 1 is real time, 0 freezes the time so if you're afraid of the dark you can freeze time while the sun is shining and enjoy the daylight all game long. Default value: 30.

While you're in the console, you can also select an element (a door, an NPC, etc) by clicking it, then you can use the following commands on it:

  • kill: kills the NPC (this will only knock out essential NPCs, to be able to kill an essential NPC you need to use setessential NPC_ID 0 to render it non-essential, where NPC_ID is the ID of the NPC - see the Fallout 3 wiki for a list of NPCs and their IDs)
  • resurrect: resurrects the NPC
  • resethealth: restores the NPC's health (you can use it on yourself with player.resethealth)
  • unlock: unlocks a lock
  • lock: locks an unlocked lock


[Psych] from RADiANCE Team made a +14 trainer with the following options:

  • Num 0: Toggles god mode + replenish health
  • Num 1: Toggles underwater breathing
  • Num 2: Toggles zero weight (will take effect when you next drop/pickup something)
  • Num 3: Toggles super speed
  • Num 4: Toggles super jump
  • Num 5: Adds 1000 XP
  • Num 6: Adds 100 Karma
  • Num 7: Substracts 100 Karma
  • Num 8: Adds 1000 bottlecaps (caps) (re-enter the pipboy to see the change)
  • Num 9: Freeze/unfreeze ammo and items: all items and ammo you have will remain in the same amount (can't gain, can't lose)
  • F1: Repairs current weapon
  • F2: Freeze/unfreeze skill points (so on the skill points screen, freeze, spend whatever you want, unfreeze, spend the remaining points to be able to proceed)
  • F3: Freeze/unfreeze attribute points (same for attribute points)
  • F4: Raises level cap: removes the silly limit on character level, this doesn't save so need to be reactivated when you restart the game.
  • F6: Saves current position (move your character a bit for the save to work)
  • F7: Teleports to the saved position (move your character a bit for the position restoration to work)
NB: when using F6/F7, be wary of the F5/F9 keys (quick save/load)

You can download this trainer here:

NB: this trainer may cause the game to crash because of conflicts with some security programs (antivirus/firewall) and/or with xlive. If this is the case, you can either check the RADiANCE team forums for help, or simply use the console cheats, which are quite complete actually.
