Fallout 4 Console Commands

The console in Fallout 3, Fallout: New Vegas and Fallout 4 is very familiar to many fans, and the commands haven't changed that much in Fallout 4 ever since Fallout 3. The console is very useful for altering content while in-game, and may be used to cheat as well. It cannot be accessed in Survival mode, though.

In order to access the console, you will need to use the ~ or ` key on your keyboard (the left of the number 1 key on US keyboard). You can enter several commands at once to be executed in a row one after the other. Simply separate them with ; between each command.

Each item, object, character, etc. will have an alphanumeric hexadecimal reference ID of 8 letters. You can shorten them to be easier to use, as no ID requires any leading zeroes to be entered. Also, the console is not case-sensitive.

Note: Use General, Items, World, Debugging and Mapping Commands, Quest CommandsInventory Manipulation CommandsNPC Manipulation CommandsFaction CommandsCharacter Manipulation Commands and Settlement Commands, for easier managing among all the console commands in Fallout 4.
