The Fallout New Vegas console commands are incredibly useful. Here are the best ones you can use to enhance your wasteland wandering.

The Fallout New Vegas console commands have helped maintain the games longevity, as despite coming out in 2010, the title is still very popular on PC. The game’s development was farmed out to Obsidian while Bethesda worked on projects like Skyrim. Yet the Courier’s adventure through the Mojave Wasteland remains one of the most celebrated Fallout experiences of all time.

Console commands help players tailor the experience to their liking, serving as cheats in some cases and quick fixes in others. To open the console, players need to press the backquote key (‘) or (~). These two symbols share the same key.

VATs gunplay in Fallout New Vegas is still satisfying.

This will pause the game and make the UI disappear and be replaced by a small cursor at the bottom left corner of the screen. This is where players can type in their console commands – unique codes that make a change to the game.

After typing each console command, players need to press enter to verify their decision. This may bring up a notification to confirm the code was successful, but not always.

Best Fallout New Vegas console commands

Here’s a breakdown of all the most useful console commands you can use and what each one does:

Code Effect
tgm God mode code. Provides Infinite health, encumbrance, and infinite ammo.
tdm Demigod mode code. Just infinite health and encumbrance.
tfc Toggles free camera.
tm Toggles UI and menus on and off.
tcl No clipping mode, allows player to phase through the environment.
tmm 1 Adds all map markers.
tmm o Removes all map markets
Killall All NPCs, enemies and animals nearby are killed.
set timescale to <#> Speeds up or slows down in-game time. Put this to 30 to reset to default.

Spawn in-game items/characters

The Fallout New Vegas console commands can also be used to spawn enemies and items. The only complication is you need to know that item/enemy’s individual ID. The good news is all IDs can be found here.


To use each code, bring up the console and type: player.additem followed by a space, the ID, another space then the quantity. It should look something like this:

For example: player.additem 0013BF53 1

If you typed the above into the console, you’d be the proud owner of the villainous Caesar’s armor.

By typing: player.removeitem <code_id> <quantity> – you’d remove the item from your inventory.
