Geralt of Rivia has got a lot on his plate, which is exactly why we think it's a forgivable offence to make use of The Witcher 3 cheats.


And we’ve got all the best console commands and how to use them to get the job done.

Unfortunately for console players, only PC users can make use of such witchcraft. Xbox, PlayStation and Switch players will just have to make do with Geralt’s own powers.

These console codes also won’t bring back Henry Cavill as Geralt either, if you weren’t happy with the recast for season 4 – not that George White minds, as he reckons Yennefer is the real star of the show.

But alas, there are plenty of cheating shenanigans ahead to tide us over until The Witcher 4, so read on!

The Witcher 3 cheats: How to use console commands

Using console commands in The Witcher 3 is a little more convoluted than in other games, and requires some .ini file editing shenanigans to make it available in-game.

Fortunately, we've got just how to do it for you below!

  • Use Windows Explorer to find your Witcher 3 folder, or if on Steam, right-click on The Witcher 3, select Manage then select Browse Local Files
  • Next, open bin, then config and finally base, where you need to open general.ini in Notepad
  • At the bottom, add a new line with "DGBConsoleOn=True" without any quotation marks then save and close the file

After this, you'll be able to access the console in game by pressing the @ or # or F2 keys and entering any of the codes below.

Said codes are often paired with parenthesis and quotation marks, and these must be kept intact. They are also case-sensitive, so make sure you’ve got them typed out correctly.

As an example, learnskill('Skill ID') would need to be entered as learnskill(‘sword_s3’).

Where IDs are required, we’ve linked off to where to find them all.
