Everyone's (secret) favourite Fallout has stood the test of time more than a decade on.


A large part of this is down to the cheats that make up Fallout: New Vegas.

Until Fallout 5 arrives and with the Fallout TV show soon a thing, fans everywhere are returning to some of the series's previous iterations.

With an open-world environment made up of Arizona, California and Nevada, exploring these lands can be mighty dangerous in the post-apocalypse.

So, that's where unleashing the best cheats for some anarchy in the wasteland comes in handy.

All the classics are here - everything from God Mode to teleportation to turning NPCs into ragdolls can be yours, if you know the right commands.

Just make sure you're playing on PC, as cheats aren't available on PlayStation or Xbox. This applies to Fallout 3 and Fallout 4, too.

It's a small price to pay, but one that's worth it for the chaos that comes with cheat codes. Here are the best Fallout: New Vegas console commands you need to know about.

Fallout: New Vegas cheats - How to use console commands

To use cheats in Fallout: New Vegas, you need to open the console by either pressing grave key (`), the key directly below Esc if using a standard British English keyboard, or the tilde key (~) if using an American English keyboard, and then entering the desired command.

Console commands aren’t case-sensitive, and though we have included brackets with information in them, you don’t want to include these, as they are only there to denote if it’s a Quest ID, item number or what have you.

An example would be coc (cell ID), which needs to be entered out as coc 001057F1 (as just an example) to teleport you to the Goodsprings General Store.
