Fallout 4 Console Commands: How To Use Them. God Mode, Freecam & More

Fallout 4 console commands open up the post-war wasteland in Bethesda’s epic game. You can call them commands or cheats; they do the same thing. They give you the ability to do whatever you want in the game. Whether it’s to get epic screenshots or mess around, there is most likely a console command for you. We will give you all the information you need to use these commands for your benefit. In each section, we will list out the commands and tell you what they do. Read on to know more.

How to Use Fallout 4 Console Commands 

First, you need to access the console in-game. This is very simple. Just press the tilde (~) key. It’s the key above ‘tab.’ If you’ve played games by Valve, you have most likely used a console already. Just type in your command and hit ‘Enter.’ It’s that easy.

One thing to note is that you’ll need to know how to get some information for a lot of the commands. Many of the commands need you to get the IDs of NPCs, items, and names of locations. One way to do it is just to Google the IDs. If you don’t want to do that, there is another way. Clicking on something while the console is open will give you its ID.  

Fallout 4 Console Commands: The Cheats You’ll Definitely Use

  1. tfc – activates free camera
  2. tfc1 – activates free camera but freezes all animations
  3. tcl – No collision
  4. tm – toggles UI and menus. It also makes the console disappear, so you need to press tilde again to use it.
  5. fov – Changes the field of view. It can be the first person or third person.
  6. Set timescale to (insert number) – slows down or speeds up time. You can enter any number. The default setting is 16. 
  7. coc (cell id) – teleports the player to a specific area
  8. tgm – the all-time favorite in any game; god mode. Go nuts!

Fallout 4 Console Commands: Mess Around With The NPCs

  • killall – kills everyone around you except companions and other important characters. They lie injured until you treat them with a stimpack.
  • Kill (insert ID) – kills the NPC whose ID you type. Alternatively, you can also click on an NPC with the console open and type ‘kill.’
  • resurrect (insert ID) – brings an NPC back to live. As before, you can also click on a dead NPC with the console open and type the command.
  • recycleactor – resets a character
  • setscale (number) – changes the size of your or a target. Choose a number between 1 and 10.

  • sexchange – again, self-explanatory. However, keep in mind it may be a bit cringeworthy when it comes to custom characters.
  • unequipall – unequips all items from the selected NPC.

Fallout 4 Console Commands: Change Your Character!

  • tdetect – the AI won’t detect your character.
  • showlooksmenu player1 – not happy with how your character looks? This will open the character customization menu.
  • player.resethealth – it’s pretty self-explanatory.
  • player.setrace (race id) – change your race. You can look up race IDs online. 
  • player.modav (skill) (number) – level up a skill with a number that you want. This does not unlock perks when you change the number. 
  • player.setav (character variable) (number) – sets a character trait to a new value. This unlocks perks when you change the number.
  • player.setav speed multi (number) – the number adds a multiplier to your running speed. Become The Flash or Dash from The Incredibles. 
  • setgs fjumpHeightMin (number) – modifies how high you jump. If you do this without god mode, the fall damage will kill you.
  • player.setlevel (number) – boost your level
  • player.additem (item ID) (number) – Add any item to your inventory. Just look up the ID, and voila. 

Fallout 4 Console Commands: Complete The Game

  • completeallobjectives (quest ID) – complete all the given quest objectives.
  • completequest (quest ID) – it’s getting a little obvious now.
  • resetquest (quest ID) – way too obvious.
  • caqs – This completes all the primary quests. That means this completes the game for you. Please don’t use it and tell your friends you finished the game. That’s not cool.

There are definitely other console commands which you can find online. However, these should be more than enough to get you started.
