Fallout 4 has found a whole new generation of players thanks to the Fallout TV show, and with many diving into the PC version, it's worth learning about console commands and cheats and how they can be used to customise the game.

Whether it's spawning new armour and weapons, filling your pockets with bottle caps, turning on god mode, or unlocking every icon on the map - there are so many things you can do with commands to play your own way. So, learn how to use them and what things you can do below.

How to use console commands

To use a console command, you just need to type it into the game's console, which can be opened with the tilde key (`) on most keyboards, located left of the 1 key.

If you're like me and use a keyboard with a UK layout, you may need to press the @ button instead, but it all works exactly the same otherwise. 

Once you enter your chosen command, just press the Enter key to confirm it and the effects will take place.
