Wondering how to get KotOR 2 cheats working? You've come to the right place to have your wicked way with Obsidian's Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II - The Sith Lords.
Back in the day, one of the most exciting gaming reveals was when LucasArts announced the follow-up to the hugely successful Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. So good is that game that it is still a go-to now for many of us, and that remains true of the stellar sequel too.
This slice of the Star Wars franchise will be back yet again, although the KotOR remake does sound quite far off, and there are still many reasons to go back and check out the second game.
As fans of The Sith Lords will remember, there is no shortage of cheats that you can use to change the KotOR 2 experience – depending on what platform you have it on, that is.
But what cheats are there in Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 2, and how do you use them? Here is all you need to know – and we've also got an article on the KotOR 1 cheats if you need them too!
To use KotOR 2 cheats on PC, you will need to access the games main folder on your PC, and you should see a path along the lines of "x:Steam/steamapps/common/Knights of the Old Republic II"
Find a text editor like Notepad and then look for the file called "swkotor2.ini". In that document you should find a 'Game Options section' and you will want to enter 'EnableCheats=1' there. Now save that file and open up the game!
When in the game, press the "~" key (also known as the tilde key), which will bring up the command console where you can enter the codes! Check out the full list below.
Note: The brackets aren't needed here, that's just to signify where you need to put a number in. Just hit enter once you have tapped in your cheat of choice, and it should be ready once you get back into the game!

Before we get started on the Switch cheats, it is worth creating a new save file before you activate any of them. Cheats have been known to corrupt save files from time to time, so it's better to be safe than sorry!
But to actually enter the cheats, all you need to do is to click the left joystick three times, which will allow you to choose from the following cheats:
- Add 1,000 experience - Adds 1,000 XP to all party members
- Add 10,000 experience - Adds 1,0000 XP to all party members
- Add 5,000 experience - Adds 5,000 XP to all party members
- Add any feat, power or skill - Adds a feat or power to the character, or the first 4 points to a skill. No further skill points can be added through this
- Create Item - Brings up list of items that can be created and placed in the inventory
- Decrease Alignment by 5 - Moves the character further to the dark side
- Heal - Heals characters to full health
- Increase Alignment by 5 - Moves the character further to the light side
- Toggle Flight Camera - Unlocks camera. Can move back and forth and side to side. Cannot rotate
- Toggle Hologram - Toggles the character to look like a hologram
- Toggle Invulnerability - Turns Invulnerability on/off
- Toggle Screenshot Mode - Toggles UI on/off
- Toggle Turbo Speed - Toggles fast run
While cheats are all go on PC and Switch (less so on Switch though), cheating on the Xbox console version of the game is not a thing and you won't find a way to enter any of the handy codes that other players can.

There are glitches and things you can take advantage of, such as item duplication, and there are ways to jailbreak certain things if that type of hack takes your fancy, but when it comes to outright simple cheat codes, you'll find yourself out of luck!
