Skyrims PC Console Commands Make You Feel Like a Big Man

Posted on November 21, 2011 AT 06:52am

THE BUZZ: One of the greatest joys of PC gaming is getting access to console commands, and for Skyrim, a game where true power takes hours of dedication, using these console commands can make  the most difficult tasks as easy as pressing a button. From kill all commands to unlimited money, like the game itself there are a number different things you can do at any given time. PC Gamer was nice enough to compile a list of known commands.

Console Commands

Good ol’ God Mode means you’re completely invulnerable to everything, and pretty damn god-like. And no one needs to write a book about you or anything.

No clipping lets you go literally anywhere in the game world, from the top of the sky to the bottom of the, er, sky. Fascinating if you want to explore every inch of the game world.

Can’t find that vital key? Lockpicking skill too low? Simply highlight the door or chest you want to unlock, and type “unlock” into the console. If only this worked in real life.

Every single spell in Skyrim is now yours!

Automatically level up – perfect if you hate playing games.

Automatically complete all the stages of your primary quest –also perfect if you hate playing games.

Unhappy with your blind, inbred-looking Bosmer chap? You can adjust the way your character looks just like you did at the start of Skyrim – but this will reset your level and skills.

player.modav skill X
Where “skill” is the skill you want to modify, and X is the amount you want to modify it by. Skills are input via their in-game names without spaces, apart from Archery which is “Marksman,” and Speech, which is known as “Speechcraft.”

player.additem ITEM ###
Every single item in Skyrim has a code, a bit like an Argos catalogue of fantasy objects. You’ll find them all on this GameFront page – replace “ITEM” with the item’s code, and “###” with the number of items you want. Now your dreams of owning 47 cabbage potato soups can come true.

player.additem 0000000f ###
A simple way to get some free gold – any number between 001 and 999 will do.

player.additem 0000000a “###”
Running low on lockpicks? Enter the number you require here and they’ll magically appear.

Combine with the codes on this Wikia page to add your selected shout.

Toggles all in-game menus – perfect if you want to take some screenshots to convince elderly relatives that Skyrim is where you went on your holidays.

Followed by 0 or 1 turns map markers on or off.

Not Team Fortress Classic, unfortunately. However, you will be able to access the flycam and pretend to be a dragon.

Toggles AI, which means people won’t interact with you, or do anything at all.

Turns combat AI on or off, turning dragons into placid beasts who act like you aren’t there. A bit like cats.

This one lets you behave like a little rapscallion, as it turns naughty business detection (stealing, murdering, doing a poo in the woods etc.) on or off. You’ll still get caught if you try pickpocketing, though.

player.setcrimegold ###
Adjust your wanted level with this handy command – setting it to zero resets your current amount of wantedness.

player.setlevel ##
Up or down your player level as you see fit. Perfect for the power mad among you (you know who you are).

player.setav speedmult ###
Want to run like Uwe Boll after a night on the vindaloo? Set this number to anything more than 100 to speed up movement.

Go straight to your quest target.

Target the thing you want to kill, type this command and they’ll fall over in a very dead manner. We wish the command was “Laputan Machine” though.

Kills everything in the vicinity. Literally everything.

Lists every single console command. We’ve put this further down the list because we want you to actually read this article.

Target the thing you want to bring back to life, and they’ll get up faster than an extra on the Walking Dead set.

player.modav carryweight #
Tired of getting tired? Up your carryweight and you’ll be able to transport more goodies.

setpcfame #
When will I, will I be famous? When you up your fame number.

setpcinfamy #
He’s not just famous, he’s in-famous! Up it here.

player.setav fatigue #
Up this to stop feeling so tired all the time.

player.setav health #
Up your health here.

coc qasmoke
Bethesda’s handily included a room with every single in-game item in it – type this command to go straight there. It might take a while to load – there are thousands of items here. Type “coc Riverwood” to return to the game.

Quit the game without having to go through any of those pesky menus.

Target a character and type this and you’ll get all their items – including their clothes. Note: does not work in real life.

Change your character’s gender. Note: does not work in real life.

set timescale to #
This defaults at 16 – 1 is realtime. Up it to experience crazy timelapse-style Skyrim.

It should be noted, while these are easily accessible, they will turn off any Steam achievements you may be trying to attain.

EGM’S TAKE: These type of cheats are reminiscent of a time when console gamers had Game Genies attached to carts and the only rule was, there were no rules. We’re glad Bethesda is keeping up with tradition and making sure we can change our gender on a whim, because that’s the type of gamers we are.
