Starfield Console Command Guide

As with most Bethesda games, Starfield is an incredibly customizable game with a multitude of systems that you can immerse yourself in. This is readily apparent through systems such as shipbuilding and outposts, but these customization options extend beyond Starfield through modding as well.

The console commands are, so to speak, located in the middle. At any time while playing Starfield, you can open the console and practically alter anything in the game. Most players use console commands to enable cheats, but they can also be used to fix broken quests, generate important items, and much more. This guide will cover the basics of console commands, how to use them, and list some of the more useful commands in Starfield.

How To Use Console Commands

Starfield Console Command Guide


Using a console command that alters the state of your game world disables achievements and marks your save file as modified. If you wish to use console commands without disabling achievements, we recommend installing a mod that enables achievements.

Despite its name, console commands are a feature available only to PC players and cannot be utilized by Xbox players without the use of mods. PC users can open the console command menu by pressing the tilde key (~). This will bring up an empty command window where you can input commands. Virtually anything is possible if you know the right command strings. You can use the console to modify your character's abilities, progress quests, or spawn any objects in the game. Console commands can be used to overcome faulty quests, trigger specific events, or activate cheats such as invincibility.

Console players currently do not have the ability to use console commands. This was also the case for Skyrim and Fallout 4 upon their initial release, but modders found ways to emulate popular console command features through mods. Once the Xbox version of Starfield supports mods, you should be able to find player-created mods that emulate many popular console commands. Official modding tools are expected to be released at some point in 2024.

Skipping The NG+ Grind

Starfield Console

This section contains spoilers for Starfield's main quest and the New Game Plus system.

Unlocking 240 temples to maximize your powers is an extremely laborious process that can take over 50 hours to complete. If you want to maximize all powers without completing the NG+ cycle multiple times, you can enter the console commands listed below. You need to unlock the power before you can level it up, and you enter the level command nine times to fully maximize a power. Credit goes to Reddit user pwn3dbyth3n00b for discovering these power IDs.
