All console commands and cheats of Fallout New Vegas

The Fallout games have always been about you and what you can do. While you can create things made by the community like Lucy from the show, you still have almost all the freedom in the world. These commands and cheats take that freedom even further, making the Fallout games fun.

Before we get to the Fallout New Vegas console commands and cheats, you may not know how to input them. I didn’t, but I found the method by accident. Simply tap the tilde key (~). By pressing it, a small window will open up in-game allowing you to register the commands. Easy right?
