If you love to modify your game using console commands then you will be happy to know that you can do so with Starfield. Whether you want to make your character level 10,000 or add a million credits so you can buy anything you’ve ever wanted, there is a console command that you can use. However, you should know a few things before doing so, as you can either prevent yourself from getting things like achievements or delete your save files, causing you to start over. Here is the full Starfield console commands list to modify your game to the moon and back!

All Starfield Console Commands List

Press the Tilde (~) key on your keyboard to open the Starfield console. Then, type in your command with the proper syntax and press Enter. You will have an in-game prompt saying your command was successful, like a pop-up recognizing that you leveled your character or an error in the console itself.

Remember that using console commands can stop you from earning achievements (per the above warning that appears when you open the console). I’ve tested all of the commands below and was not given a warning on which would cause this, so this is the proceed at your own risk warning!

Console CommandSyntaxConsole Command Description
