The Witcher 3 console commands and cheat codes

Fast Travel from anywhere, spawn items, play as Ciri, enable God Mode, and more

Looking for an up-to-date list of The Witcher 3 cheats and console commands? "Evil is evil," opines Geralt during one of his many Ethics 101 lectures. "Lesser, greater, middling. It's all the same." So we can infer that he probably wouldn't think too much of us using all these Witcher 3 cheats and console commands to assume godlike powers of creation and destruction - but hey, if he starts complaining, we can just turn him into Ciri, who I'm sure is far less scrupulous about such things.

CD Projekt Red recently announced seven brand new games, including an upcoming Witcher trilogy and a sequel to Cyberpunk 2077.Watch on YouTube
