Half-Life: Alyx – Cheats and Console Commands

More Half-Life: Alyx Guides:

Are you stuck? Are you a huge sissy and can’t take the stress of the dark early parts of the game? Use console commands to literally make yourself a god, and I’ll be telling you how to enable the console, and list some commands here for you to play around with.

Console Commands Guide

Enabling the Console

Make sure you have Half-Life Alyx closed.

Navigate to your library and right click Half Life Alyx, in the dropdown menu that appears, click “properties”.

Next, click “set launch options”.

Next, paste -console -vconsole into the textbox and click OK.

Opening the Console In-Game

Open up Half-Life Alyx

For most of these commands to work, you have to be loaded ingame, so load a savegame and pause your game.

Press “~” on your keyboard to load up the console. If you cant find the key, its located above the “tab” key. Now, a window will open up on your PC monitor, not in your VR headset so you’ll have to take off your headset to use the console, which is why I recommend pausing your game when using the console.

Using the Console (Entering Commands)

This is what your console will look like.

Type in your commands in the textbox that I’ve circled in red, helpfully labeled “command”.

Press enter after you are finished typing in or copy-pasting your commands for them to take effect.

Console Commands

You must type in “sv_cheats 1” without quotes and press enter for most of these commands to work.
