All Starfield Cheat Codes and Console Commands

This guide talks about all the console commands and cheat codes that can be done in Starfield.

Starfield Cheat Codes Console Commands cover

Starfield is a game where players can openly use cheats and console commands within the game itself with just a press of a button and without having to use any third-party software. Players who would like to test out stuff within the game or those who just want to have their own way of having fun can use these console commands to change almost whatever they can think of in the game.

Read ahead as we list down all the cheat codes and console commands in Starfield as well as how to to use these codes within the game.

How to use the Console Commands

To start using the Console Commands, first open the terminal within the game by pressing the Tilde (~) key which is usually found just below the Escape Key on most standard keyboards. Then, type in the code that you want to use and hit Enter. For codes that are toggled on and off, simply type the code once more to turn it off or on when needed.

So far, console commands will only work on the PC version of the game, so even plugging in a keyboard to an Xbox will not work.

Starfield Cheat Codes can by typed into the terminal to enable, disable, or reuse a command. They are not case-sensitive, just make sure to add in the periods (.) and the spaces when they are needed. For this guide, we will be using brackets [ ] to denote where to place either the ID or the Value/Amount that are needed for the complete command, but they are not to be included when typing the command itself.

For example, if you want to spawn a dozen (Amount: 12) Osmium Daggers (ID: 0026D966) in front of you, the basic console command that you need is this:

player.placeatme [ID] [Amount]

The command that you need to type into the terminal for that specific request is this:

player.placeatme 0026D966 12

IDs are usually denoted as 8-alphanumeric codes which can be typed with the full eight digits, or the 0’s on the left side of the code can be omitted, leaving only the code itself.

For example, spawning 1 million credits, the code can be typed like this:

player.additem 0000000f 1000000

Or like this:

player.additem f 1000000

Starfield Console Command Warning – Disabled Achievements

Upon first accessing the terminal, you will receive a message warning you that using certain console commands will disable achievements. These are commands that are usually connected to the game progression and that are tied to the game achievements such as reaching certain character levels. Once you have used a command that does so, the achievement disabling cannot be undone.

However, you can simply create another save file as a duplicate before doing any command. Then, select which save file you want to play at the Load Save File screen by choosing the Select Character option after selecting a save file. This will pull up both unmodified and modified versions of your save file from which you can simply select which one you would like to play on.

On the other hand, we have caught wind that there have been multiple mods that could bypass the achievement disabling – we’ll leave that for you eager folks to find out.

Nevertheless, we’ll leave it to you, the player, to use the console commands with your own discretion. Starfield is a single-player game anyway, so you can play it however you want.
