Starfield console commands offer the chance to change up the experience in a variety of ways. Some good. Some bad. Some downright weird.


Whatever you want to get out of Starfield cheats, we'll be explaining how to use them right here.

Launched in September 2023, Starfield is available across Xbox Series X/S and PC, with over six million players jumping into the space RPG so far. That's a huge number, considering that the game hasn't been on the market for that long.

One of the many fun elements of Starfield, and Bethesda games in general, is the cheats. Being able to upgrade your arsenal or gain instant access to the best ships in the galaxy, instead of grinding for dozens of hours, is naturally very tempting.

Even taking into account the best Starfield tips and tricks, it does take some time.

That's why we've put together a handy guide on how to use Stafield console commands, including how to disable achievements so you can enjoy the game without it disputing your 100 per cent completion. Head below for more:

To use the console in Starfield you need to press the ` (grave) or ~ (tilde) key on a UK and US keyboard respectively. These keys are both found underneath the escape key.

This will pause the game. Before you can use it, a prompt will appear warning you that using console commands will disable achievements. To get rid of this, press ~ again and then press E to confirm. This appears the first time you open the console in a session and won’t come up again for the rest of it. Your save file will have a symbol next to it to denote that the game has been altered in some way.
