If you fancy bestowing your Sims with a touch of lycanthropy (or even removing the Occult state), The Sims 4's Werewolves DLC has plenty of cheats that can speed you through many of its hairy features.

Cheats in this Game Pack allow you to fully customise your experience within the game, giving you options to complete Aspirations with a quick strike of the keyboard, or even adding certain Werewolf-specific traits to your Sims.

Cheats for The Sims 4 Werewolves

If you've decided to turn a non-werewolf Sim into the Occult after creating them in CAS, you can do so by using the first cheat in the table below:

Code Cheat

traits.equip_trait trait_occultwerewolf

Turn your Sim into a werewolf

traits.remove_trait trait_occultwerewolf

Turn a Werewolf back into a Sim
aspirations.complete_current_milestone  Complete the current werewolf aspiration

stats.set_stat rankedStatistic_Werewolf_Progression #

Gain werewolf XP to unlock abilities

As with many Occults in The Sims 4, werewolves come with unique abilities that can be unlocked by gaining XP. If you want to blast through your Werewolf Rank to get them quicker, the final cheat above will help you on your way.

When using that cheat, you'll want to replace the hashtag with the amount of XP you wish to add to a Sim's Werewolf Rank.

From my own experience with the cheat, it's worth noting that the number keeps increasing throughout each of a werewolf's ranks instead of resetting at each new level. So while using something like '30' would give you a little bit of experience if you're at Pup rank, doing the same at a higher rank will take you back to Pup.

I've found that entering '3000' took my Sim right up to Apex from the beginning of the Pup rank, so you'll need to play with the code a little to get your own Sim to the place you want them at.

Werewolf trait cheats

New traits also arrived in Werewolves that add specific buffs to your Sim depending on their friendship with other werewolf Sims, whether they come from a family of werewolves, or if they have completed any of the DLC-specific Aspirations.

These can be added to your Sim in a flash by entering your preferred trait from the list below:

Code Cheat

traits.equip_trait trait_OccultWerewolf_AspirationTraits_BetterFuryControl

Adds 'Refined Lupine' trait to your Sim
traits.equip_trait trait_OccultWerewolf_AspirationTraits_BetterTurning Adds 'Chomp Champion' trait to your Sim
traits.equip_trait trait_OccultWerewolf_AspirationTraits_FormerLycan Adds 'Werewolf Ally' trait to your Sim
traits.equip_trait trait_OccultWerewolf_AspirationTraits_FriendlyWolf Adds 'Fanged Friend' trait to your Sim
traits.equip_trait trait_OccultWerewolf_AspirationTraits_MoreFear Adds 'Threatening Presence trait to your Sim
traits.equip_trait trait_OccultWerewolf_DormantWolf Adds 'Dormant Wolf' trait to your Sim
traits.equip_trait trait_OccultWerewolf_GreaterWolfBlood Adds 'Greater Wolf Blood' trait to your Sim
traits.equip_trait trait_OccultWerewolf_InitiationBonusTrait Adds 'Lunar Confidant' trait to your Sim
traits.equip_trait trait_WerewolfPack_FriendA Adds 'Friend of the Moonwood Collective' trait to your Sim
traits.equip_trait trait_WerewolfPack_FriendB Adds 'Friend of the Wildfangs' trait to your Sim

These traits can also be removed from your Sim by using the same code, but replacing 'equip' with 'remove'. For example, to remove the 'Friend of the Widfangs' trait, the code would be 'traits.remove_trait trait_WerewolfPack_FriendB'.

Temperament cheats in The Sims 4 Werewolves

Werewolf Temperaments are assigned to your Sim throughout gameplay up to a total of four, and affect how their Fury meter either builds or decreases.

If you want to add a particular one to your Sim after receiving one you either don't like or to aid in storytelling, you can assign them with the following list:

Temperament Code
Anti-Capitalist Canine traits.equip_trait trait_OccultWerewolf_Temperaments_AntiCapitalistCanine
Big Bad Wolf traits.equip_trait trait_OccultWerewolf_Temperaments_BigBadWolf

How to enter & enable cheats 

Now that you know all of the lycanthropic cheats available to you, you'll need to know how you can use them!

It's a very simple process if you're new to cheating:

  • Press all four shoulder buttons at the same time if you're a PlayStation or Xbox user
  • For PC, hold CTRL and Shift, then press C
  • Mac is much the same as PC, except you'll hold Command and Shift, then press C

This will then make a white box appear at the top of the screen. In that box, enter 'testingcheats true' pr 'testingcheats on' to enable the use of cheats in the game.

Some mods for The Sims 4, like MC Command Center, negate the need for this cheat entirely, so that's always an option too.

Note that once you use cheats in a save file you'll no longer be able to earn trophies or achievements on your chosen platform for that save file.

Now that you know how to cheat to your heart's content as a werewolf, check out our homepage for The Sims for handy guides like the best trait mods, a breakdown of the Disney Princess Challenge, how to get & use upgrade parts, or how to make a basement.
