Factorio – Useful Console Commands (Cheat Codes)

Want to mine at stupid speeds? Hate nights? Hate biters? Spawn in stuff? All possible using console commands! Read this guide to learn how to use the Factorio console commands (cheat codes).

How to open the console?

Using the Factorio console is surprisingly simple. Just open the chat box (default is ~ or /).

If you can’t find the right key: open the options screen and look for controls, you should be able to find a control named “Toggle Lua console” with a key right next to it.

If you want to repeat a previously executed command, press the up arrow on your keyboard to scroll through the chat/command history.

You can use the console to spawn items, walk faster, unlock researches and many more. Here’s a bunch of useful commands.
