A 2015 action role-playing game developed by Bethesda Game Studios and published by Bethesda Softworks, Fallout 4 is set in a dystopian future.

How to Use Fallout 4 Console Commands

All you have to do to bring up the console in Fallout 4 is press your keyboard’s tilde (~) key. You can then input console commands by following the syntax shown in the tables below.

Command Types

The commands on this page will appear in two types, and their formatting is as follows:

  • target.command ? Targeted commands. These will either be listed here with targetID or player as a target.
    • Targeted commands also work by selecting the target with the mouse or using prid <refID> before the command.
  • command ? Untargeted commands.

In some cases, commands can either be used with a target or without one, resulting in a global or targeted effect.

How to Find Item & NPC IDs in Fallout 4

Many of these commands require you to know how to get the IDs of items, NPCs, and the names of locations and factions. A character or item’s ID can be viewed by clicking on it while the console is open. Looking up commands and IDs can also be helpful, using the help command:

  • help   

coc qasmoke  ? This command teleports you to a room with several boxes that contain every single item in the game. Surreal, but an excellent way to find item IDs. You can find an item ID by entering the console and clicking on the item in the game world with your mouse.
