The Vampires Game Pack added the sunlight-avoiding, bat-transforming, and garlic-avoiding Occult into The Sims 4, and as is the case with its many other DLCs, there's a whole set of cheats to go along with them.

Offering Simmers the chance to work up the vampiric ladder to become a Master Vampire, if you don't want to wait to join the ranks of the undead, you can use the game's cheats for a headstart - perfect for kickstarting a specific storyline or to try all of the cool powers for vampire Sims.

As you gain experience in The Sims 4 as a Vampire, you'll be able to unlock new powers that will help you on your way to becoming an almost unstoppable force of nature. From being able to detect another Sim's personality to gaining immunity against the dreaded garlic (gasp!) - there are lots of cool ones.

Luckily, you can cheat your way to them if you don't want to go through the hassle of ranking your vampire up.

First, though, you'll need to access a Sim's ID, as that's an important part of the codes for these powers. Use the 'Sims.get_Sim_id_by_name [First Name] [Last Name]' cheat first, and then replace the (SimID) section of the below codes with that number

Power Code

bucks.unlock_perk BatForm true 40961 (SimID)

Beyond the Herd
bucks.unlock_perk LoseHumanity_Social true 40961 (SimID)

Vampiric Slumber
bucks.unlock_perk VampiricSlumber_Level3 true 40961 (SimID)

Vampiric Strength
bucks.unlock_perk VampiricStrength_Level3 true 40961 (SimID)

For example, in the case of my Sim, if I wanted to add the 'Vampiric Charm' power, I'd enter 'bucks.unlock_perk AlluringVisage_3 true 40961 1120290458968982602'.

You can unlock these powers regardless of your rank, so have at them and add whichever ones you like.

Vampire Rank cheats

Now that you've got access to all of the different powers, you'll likely want to boost a Sim's rank up a bit - so use the following codes to progress through them:

Cheat Code
Minor Vampire rank
stats.set_stat rankedStatistic_Occult_VampireXP 202

Prime vampire rank
stats.set_stat rankedStatistic_Occult_VampireXP 630

Achieve 'Master' vampire rank
stats.set_stat rankedStatistic_Occult_VampireXP 1058

Achieve 'Grand Master' vampire rank
stats.set_stat rankedStatistic_Occult_VampireXP 1486

Achieve max rank
stats.set_stat rankedStatistic_Occult_VampireXP 1593
Add two perk points stats.set_stat rankedStatistic_Occult_VampireXP 2000

Grand Master vampires can continue to learn powers without taking additional weaknesses, which are a requirement when taking the powers (the exception being if you've cheated the powers above, of course.)

Trait cheats for Vampires

The Vampires Game Pack comes with a couple of reward traits that Sims will be rewarded with when completing Aspirations, but you can add them to a Sim in a jiffy with the following:

Trait Code Description
Regained Humanity traits.equip_trait RegainedHumanity
These vampire Sims are more trustworthy, and other Sims are more likely to permit them to drink their Plasma

I Am The Master traits.equip_trait TheMaster
Command Powers used on Vampire Offspring always succeed

A True Master traits.equip_trait TrueMaster
Greater vampire energy and mind control powers

Miscellaneous cheats for The Sims 4 Vampires

If your Sim has yet to even become a vampire, you've got a couple of different options available to you, as there's a code which triggers the vampiric process and another which will instantly transform them.

Either one is viable, it just comes down to whether you want to play through the transformation process or trim all the fat and have them become immortal instantly:

Cheat Code
Turn your Sim into a vampire naturally
stats.set_stat commodity_BecomingVampire 2160

Instantly turn Sim into vampire
traits.equip_trait trait_OccultVampire

Reset vampire powers
bucks.lock_all_perks_for_bucks_type 40961 (SimID) true

Remove vampire state from Sim traits.remove_trait trait_occultvampire
Remove all vampire weaknesses
bucks.lock_all_perks_for_bucks_type 40962 {SimID} false

Instantly kill vampire with sunlight
stats.set_stat commodity_Vampire_SunExposure -100

Turn vampire into a ghost (via sun death)
traits.equip_trait Vampire_Sun

Max out Vampire Lore skill
stats.set_skill_level VampireLore 10

Max out Pipe Organ skill
stats.set_skill_level Major_PipeOrgan 10

The Vampire Lore and Pipe Organ skills are new to Vampires, and you can adjust the above codes to your liking, with 10 being the cap for both of these. I tend to set my own Sims at around 7-9, so that they still have a little bit of growth left to do in a particular skill.

How to use cheats

As always, before imputing a cheat, you'll have to open the cheat bar and enable cheats in your game. Once cheats are enabled in your game trophies and achievements will no longer be available in your save file.

  • To open the cheat bar, press CTRL + Shift + C if you're on PC
  • Mac users will need to hold Command + Shift + C
  • Console Simmers, you'll want to hold in all four triggers at one

You'll then get a white box pop up in the top-left of your screen. Here, input 'testingcheats true' and press 'Enter' to enable the cheats option, and you can then use any of the codes on this page.

Now that you can vampire to your vampiric, undead heart's content, check out our homepage for The Sims for all the best mods you can download, or cheats for Toddlers, Werewolves, and Discover University.
