Skyrim console commands and cheats

We’ve brought together all of the commands and cheats that can be used in Skyrim in one handy list as well as a quick guide to correctly entering them. You will also notice that our list is broken down into a a few key categories starting with basic and fun cheats and working down towards some more granular tweaks you can employ.

Set NPC Level setlevel <1>,<2>,<3>,<4> Sets the level of a targeted NPC. Because of Skyrim’s scaling level system, this one is a little tricky. You need to assign four values. Each number is: 1: <% of PC’s level * 10> The NPC’s level in comparison to player, based on % of players level. (1000 = 100.0%) 2: <1 level +/-> How many levels this NPC will be above or below the level in 1. 3: The lowest level this NPC can be.

To use Skyrim’s commands, you’ll need to open the developer console screen. This is easily done by tapping the tilde (~) key, which can be found under the Esc key, and just to the left of the 1 key on an American English keyboard. If you’re using a British English keyboard, you’ll need to tap the grave (`) key, which is located in the same place.

When typing in console commands, remember that commands are not case sensitive, so don’t worry about caps lock. You’ll find that many commands will have a section that says something like<#>. In these cases, do not type the<> brackets, nor the #. Instead, type out the name of the item you want, and follow up by replacing the # with thenumberof items you require.

So whether, you want to skip through some of the game’s busywork, drastically alter your character build, or nerf the living daylights out of a giant, we’ve got the Skyrim console commands for you.
