How to activate Cheats in Sims 4?

Before you start getting crazy with these cheats, you must note that enabling cheats will turn off all achievements and trophies. Don’t worry. It will only affect the world that you’ll activate the cheats, so your normal worlds won’t be affected.

Now that’s out of the way, let’s start activating cheats. To activate cheats, you first have to bring up the Cheat Menu. To do this, just follow these simple steps

  1. PC: Ctrl+Shift+C, then enter testingCheats true
  2. Xbox: Hold  LT + RT + LB + RB for a few seconds, then type testingCheats true
  3. PS4 and PS5:  Hold L1 + L2 + R1 + R2 for a few seconds then type testingCheats true

Once you’ve entered the code, the command will activate the cheats. To use the specific cheat, you must type the cheat code you want to use in the small field on the top of the screen and press done or enter to activate the cheat.

This is relatively true for all cheats except for the interaction cheats. Since you must specify the item/s when starting the interaction cheat, you must do additional steps to activate it. Follow these steps to activate interaction cheats. The interaction cheat menu will only open once you’ve activated the testingCheat command.

  • PC: Hold Shift and click the item or sim you want to activate. Choose the cheat you want to use
  • Xbox: Hold  A + B for the interaction cheat menu to pop upPS4 and PS5:  Hover to the item or sim you want to activate. Press circle and hold, then press X to bring up the interaction cheat menu.
