The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim – Console Commands (Cheat Codes)

Console commands can be used to spawn enemies, add items into your inventory, make you invincible, free camera and so on. How do I open my console? You open up your console by pressing “~”. (This will maybe depend in which country you live or which keyboard you own.) Press “~” again to close your console.


Some basics you should know about console commands are:

  • Your game will be paused while the console is open.
  • If you left click an object the item-ID will show up.
  • You can easly summon your previous commands by pressing ▲ or ▼.

General Commands

  • tgm – god mode (invincible, infinte arrows, infinite stamina and magica) 
  • tcl – no collision (walk through walls and fly in the sky) 
  • tfc – free camera (first person makes your character invisible ► third person and your character will be visible) 
  • tfc 1 – free camera + time stop (same thing like tfc and perfect for screenshots) 
  • tfc – free camera 
  • tm – Toggles menus and UI on and off. (Becareful with that, even the console gets invisible!) 
  • coc [cell id] – This will teleport you to every location you want. (for example: “coc WhiterunDragonsreach” will teleport you to the Dragonsreach in Whiterun) 
  • set timescale to [insert number here] – Speeds up or slows down time. (16.1 is default) 
  • help [ ] 4 – Gives you information for example Item-ID or ref-ID (type for example: “help Bandit 4” many names and ID’s will show up) This is pretty useful if you can’t find the item-ID for any material you want to cheat. 
  • disable – This makes the selected object invisible. (typing enable makes the object visible again) Left click for example a corpse, lying in your house for months and write disable. 
  • resetquest [Quest ID] – Resets a quest. 
  • completequest [Quest ID] – Completes a quest. 
  • tfow – reveals the entire map. 
  • unlock – unlocks the selected item. 
  • lock – locks the selected item.

Character Based

  • showracemenu – This opens character customization menu (if you are tired of your look for example). Don’t change your race or gender with this!. 
  • set race [race you want] – Changes your race to whatever you want. (for example: set race nord).
  • setgs fJumpHeightMin [insert number here] – This makes you jump higher (I recommend to turn on god mode because of the falling damage). 
  • player.setav [skill] [number] – Boost the choosen skill (setav sneak 100 will boost your strength to 100 for example) This can also boost your carryweight. 
  • player.setav speedmult [insert number here] – This will multiplier your running speed (100 = increase by 100% as far as I know). 
  • player.setlevel [insert number] – Boosts your level. 
  • psb – Unlocks all spells. 
  • resethealth – Heals the selected target.


  • player.additem [item ID] [number] – Yes you can add every item in the whole game into your inventory with this simple command. 

It works like this: player.additem 0000000f 100000 – now you have 100000 Septims more.


  • killall – Kills everyone in the vicinity.
  • kill [insert ID] – Kills a specific target. (it’s easier to just left click on the target and type kill)
    resurrect [insert ID] – Brings the selected creature back to live. (it’s easier to just left click on the target and type resurrect)
  • setscale [number from 1 to 10] – This makes your target huge. (again left click your target)
  • unequipall – Unequips all items from the selected NPC.
