So here’s a little guide for people who want to use the console in Subnautica, as it is quite easy and useful if you know what you’re doing.
How do I open the console?– To open the console press the tilde key (~) or shift + tab simultaneously. The key should be located on the upper left corner of your keyboard and can also be used to create a chat with other players in multiplayer. How do I use commands?– Commands are basically abilities that you want your character to execute, such as teleporting, spawning items or adding health. To put it even simpler: Saying something to the game (e.g. “give me water” or “I want more oxygen”). How do I know what commands are available?– Press tab (or shift + tab) to open the console and type in any of these commands below. Some of them will not work, others will surprise you with their possibilities. Cheat codes can be turned off in the options. The list below are not confirmed to work 100% of the time, but can be used if their effect is intended by Unknown Worlds Entertainment, otherwise they are just random effects which you can use for your entertainment.
How to access console in subnautica
To access the console, press ~ (or shift + tab if you’re on a US keyboard) or alternatively go to options and click “enable developer console”. You can then input cheats by typing into the game’s chat. Note that cheats will corrupt your save file – it is advised that you create a separate copy of your save file if you wish to experiment with cheats.
Subnautica Console Cheat Codes List and Best Mods
-GiveItem [“ITEM NAME”] – This will spawn the item directly into your inventory. If it doesn’t work, try putting “Blueprint’/Game/PrimalEarth/CoreBlueprints/Items/Consumables/BaseBPs/PrimalItemConsumable_Egg_Aurora.PrimalItemConsumable_Egg_Aurora'” into the brackets instead of just typing the name of the item.
-ToggleFlyCam – This will allow you to fly around without your PRAWN suit. Use with caution as you do not have a physical body while flying around as camera.
-ToggleBGM – This toggles the background music on and off.
-Game.GetPlayer().SetGodMode(Enable or Disable) – This allows you to have infinite health and oxygen, but also makes it so that you don’t have to eat or drink ever again.
-Game.GetPlayer().IgnoreNeighborBPLimits – This will allow you to visit your neighbor’s bases and claim any vehicles they may have, as well as use their computer to save your game progress. You cannot however, take anything from the base but we recommend placing a PRAWN suit charger inside to make an even trade next time (if there is one).
