Oblivion Console Commands & Cheats

TES Oblivion is a great game on its own. But, that doesn’t mean that we can’t use a few console commands/cheats every now and then to make it even more interesting. 

Commands allow you to control NPCs, edit your character as many times as you want, add more money, turn you invincible, and so much more. 

That being said, do always remember to keep backups in case that something ends up going wrong. And with that out of the way, let’s check out some commands. 

How to Enable the Console on Oblivion

Some games require you to first activate their console before being able to use them. But, Oblivion comes with it enabled by default. 

So, all you need to do is basically just open the game, hit the “~” or “`” button, and you should be good to go. 

The symbol may differ from keyboard to keyboard, depending on the language and layout. But, generally, it should be below the “ESC” key below “1”.

Graphics Commands

Anything that has to do with enabling or disabling specific graphical elements such as grass, sky, water, etc. If you are GPU bound on a low-end system, then some of these commands may end up giving you better overall performance. 

tg: Enables or disables grass

tlv: Toggles leaves

tt: Makes all trees invisible (But you can still bump into them unless you use tcl which also allows you to walk through anything else)

NPC Commands

These commands allow us to mess around with the NPCs in a variety of different ways from making them blind to your presence to simply killing everything that’s in your radius with a click and more. 

stopcombat: Temporarily stops the NPC from attacking

startcombat: Has the opposite effect of stopcombat

kill: Instantly kills the targeted NPC

killall: Kills every NPC who is on your vicinity

resurrect: Resurrects the targeted (Dead) NPC

enable: Brings back the specified item or NPC back to the world

tai: Completely disables AI

tcai: Disables combat AI

The full list of NPC IDs can be found over at the TES Fandom Wiki. The only reason that we are not including them here is that there are way too many IDs to list into a single compact article such as this one.

Just various commands of miscellaneous nature.

movetoqt: Teleports you to the active quest’s location

Armor Commands

Adding the armor of your choice is as easy as using the additem [Item ID] [Quantity], finding the armor’s ID, and that’s about it. 

There are frankly way too many IDs for us to mention into a single article. So, we’ll only be mentioning a few options to get you started. And if you want more, head over to Oblivion’s Wiki page.

Wrapping Up

That’s all for now. Again, don’t forget to keep backups in case that a combination of commands ends up breaking your game. It’d be a shame to lose a save file with hundreds of hours of progress just for a tiny mistake. 

If we forgot to mention an important command, then let us know about it in the comments section.
