Fallout New Vegas Console Commands & Cheats

Fallout New Vegas is a great game as is. But, that doesn’t mean that we can’t use a few commands, cheats, and mods to make things a bit more interesting, fun, and in some cases, easier as well. 

All you need to know is the best Fallout New Vegas console commands and that’s about it. But, before we show you what we’ve got, do keep in mind that keeping backups is highly recommended. 

After all, it’s widely known that cheats, commands, and mods can easily break a game. Without any further ado, let’s get on with the article!

How to Enable Fallout New Vegas’ Console

Some games require you to enable the console before being able to use it. But, Fallout New Vegas has it enabled by default. 

So, all you need to do is press the “~” button, enter the command of your choice, and that’s about it. 

That button can be found on the upper left part of the keyboard – usually right next to “1”. Some other keyboards, depending on their layout and language, may require you to use the “`” button instead. 

In any case, the key which is responsible for opening the console is almost always on that upper left spot.

Item Commands

By using item commands, you can add pretty much any item that exists in the game to your inventory.

All you need is the ID of the item that you’re looking for and the appropriate command. Speaking of which, almost all item IDs can be found over at the Fallout NV Wiki

player.additem [Item ID] [Amount]: Adds the specified item. You can adjust the amount to add as many as you want on your inventory

player.removeitem [Item ID] [Amount]: Removes the selected items

player.showinventory: Displays the IDs of the items that currently reside on your inventory

To show you a few examples of how that works:

player.additem 0013bf53 1: Adds 1 Ceasar’s armor to your inventory

player.additem 00157cd2 1: Adds 1 Gladiator armor to your inventory

player.additem 0006b53d 30: Adds 30 standard 5mm ammo

player.additem 00004240 50: Adds 50 standard 5.56mm ammo

And the same thing goes for every other item or weapon in the game. 

Armor and Clothing Commands

There are so many available clothing and armor commands in this game that we can’t possibly hope to list everything. So, instead, here a few options to kick you off and if you want more, head over to the Fallout NV Wiki.

Wrapping Up

That’s all for now. If you’re not satisfied with this list, Fallout New Vegas’ Wiki contains the full list of IDs for weapons, clothing, armor, consumables, weapon mods, and more. We only mentioned what we considered to be somewhat rare or interesting because placing everything into a single article while still keeping it relatively short is impossible. 

If you think that we forgot to mention something important/useful, then let us know about it in the comments.
