Category:Designer Debug Tools


This is a brief list of console commands commonly used by designers when debugging content. The console is not enabled by default. To enable the console add the line bAllowConsole=1 to fallout.ini in your installation folder. While running the game, press ~ to pause the game and enter console commands.

NOTE: Many console commands are disabled in the optimized, retail version of the game. They are included here for posterity, and in case those commands are exposed to end-users in future builds.
