modpcs and modpca don't appear to work. player.forceav and player.modav do. I would recommend omitting the modpc# commands. FordGT90Concept 06:09, October 26, 2010 (UTC)


Get Reputation

Anyone know how to get reputation stats in console? 11:28, October 29, 2010 (UTC)

I couldn't find a console command, but I did find a workaround. Equip any faction armor (besides the bugged White Glove Society gear), and then remove it so you get the "no longer dressed as" message. Then, open the console and type 'player.sv' (show variables attached to player). Use Page Up/Down keys to scroll to the block that looks like the following:

->fUpdateNegNCR = 0.00 ->fUpdatePosNCR = 80.000 ... (4 more pairs for CL, BoS, GK, and PG)

these are the rep values that were added back when you removed the faction armor (Neg for Infamy, Pos for Fame), which is equal to the current values for those factions.

Console Commands

If you inadvertently open the console command (the tilde key is right above the Tab key on U.S. keyboards and is easy to hit accidentally) will it still prevent you from earning achievements?

Yes. I do it all the time and it bothers me.  Blinity 01:45, November 14, 2010 (UTC)

False. You have to actually hit Enter after typing a valid command. Only then will you botch the chance to get any achievements. Also, there's a setting in the .ini file that disables the console, so that you can't open it.

Resetting a character to level 1?

I'm wondering if there is a way to start from scratch basically from where my character already is in the game. I'm level 30, but I don't want to redo all the quests, I just want to reset to level 1 and use the advlevel to repick all my skills+stats+perks like I just started the game and went through 30 levels so I can see how picking different stats and perks would have worked out. I am a long range character and I want to switch to unarmed :D. I'm just not sure if setting my character level to 1 is going to reset all my perks and skills as well. Thanks for any info you guys can send my way.

  • EDIT* Ok, yeah I did it but there's no easy way that I have found. Just have to remove all the perks one at a time and reset to level 1, and reset stats to what you would have wanted them to be and then readjust skills to what they would have been if you started a new char with those particular stats (which I found by starting a new game and just adjusting stats to my liking and writing everything down right after the doc finished interviewing me.

I however haven't found a way to undo the implants from usanagi, so I wasted one of my implant spots with an endurance implant *facepalm*. Maybe I"ll find a way to remove that too, but I dont know if she will recognize it or if I will have to manually add another implant through the console for that as well.

i think the implants are actually qualified as perks. so it might be possible to remove them using the same commands ("player.removeperk xxxxxx"), but i'm just guessing here.

About quest "Et tumor, Brute?" Item IDs


I'm trying to finish the game by Caesar's side, but I'm really stuck with the quest "Et tumor, Brute?" where you need to cure Caesar before next assignment. I was told in a walkthrough on tne internet, that you have 2 options to cure Caesar : 1st, manually with surgical tools and doctor's bag, OR 2nd get a Diagnostic working unit for the auto-doc. I already have the items for the 1st option, but I can't cure Caesar because of no dialog options. Then I've tried to get this diagnostic auto-doc unit from vault 34 (hell of a place...), but the quest is screwed, like there's a bug. So I tried to "getquestcompleted" with the correct questID, but it didn't work. I had no chance getting an itemID for the diagnostic auto-doc unit, needed to resume the quest and cure Caesar. Has anyone found the correct itemID for this? Can anyone put it in the misc or quest itemID please?

Player Faction?

Anyone know the code for the player faction? Or if you can use the fallout 3 console for ally enemy? Ex. setally ncrfaction playerfaction 1

Unlisted Commands

There might be a few commands missing. I know the command "resurrect" will resurrect any selected NPC. It seems a few codes similar to Oblivion's commands are available. Pluupy 21:16, November 3, 2010 (UTC)

marxismoney 07:00, December 10, 2010 (UTC): yes there are a lot of commands that are not listed here. I'm going to add text to the beginning of the article that shows how to get all those missing commands. And I happen to agree that this article should be merged with the Gamebryo article. from a development standpoint, there doesn't seem to be any reason they ought to be separate, excepting pure vanity.

dev armory is nothing

i tested coc dev armory and u appear in a greyish void can anyon confirm? 22:57, November 6, 2010 (UTC)


yup, im gettin the same thing

Crap innit? cheers anyway

their could be a command that you have to type when in the room as some kind of dev password

Nope, that cell is a completely empty and unreferenced cell. No items in it, no scripts associated with it. --Kris User Hola.jpg 11:43, December 5, 2010 (UTC)
yeah, those of you who remember modding for oblivion (different developer, same publisher) will remember tons and tons of debug cells. they were usually empty, useless rooms left over by the devs, but there were a couple that were loaded to the brim with all the weapons, all the items, and even one where there were a bunch of monkey books floating in the air (don't ask, cuz i don't know, probably somebody's little joke). i've found that dozens of commands that worked for oblivion (such as "setav" rather than "forceav" still work because it's a similar engine. my advice - those leftover commands often cause bugs. for example, modifying my carryweight with setav has left me stuck with an unmodifiable carryweight (i.e., beer doesn't let me carry more, i have to use the console). so leave 'em be unless you're prepared to fix the bugs that will arise from using them.

Just download the weapon house mod from the NV nexus if you want all the weapons.

gbo command removed?

Does anyone know why the "gbo" console command no longer works/exists in F:NV? I was going to set a character to essential, but since you need their BaseID (gbo used after prid # of character), I couldn't. Is there a new command instead? 03:48, November 7, 2010 (UTC)

You need the New vegas script Extender (Nvse.silverlock.org)

Character ID's

Was having problem setting several NPC's invulnerable using the "Setessential" command. is it still the same as FO3?

You need their base ID. Check the subject above with gbo.

Set Time

I know there is a set time scale command, but does anyone know if there is a set time command. Something that can jump you from day or night without waiting.

Thanks. 13:30, November 9, 2010 (UTC)

why not just use the wait command? hit wait, slide it to 12 hours, and then it will be day/night!, whichever you wanted! this is a solid game, it can often do what you want it to without having to use the console. Marxismoney 07:49, January 3, 2011 (UTC)


I used the SetReputation command to change my standing with the Powder Gangers to Idolized, yet they still attack me. Why? 16:59, November 13, 2010 (UTC)

If your wearing faction armor of an enemy faction they'll attack you regardless of your reputation.  Blinity 02:24, November 14, 2010 (UTC)

Also their hostility is not automatically checking on your reputation. You need to change it when outside of the cell. If they're still hostile, wait till the cell resets (around 4 in-game days? Unsure). This also requires that you're OUTSIDE of the cell so go travel far away from it for a while

marxismoney 07:00, December 10, 2010 (UTC) : i did the exact same thing. never thought to do it the above way. what i did was just picked the ones i wanted to stop fighting and add them to my faction. see my edit under the reputation section. good tip about the cell, will try that when i go back to NCRCF.

The Powder Gangers in the prison have a different faction than the others try set ally with 8d395 for the gangers. -- 19:43, June 24, 2011 (UTC)

my console commands will not open

i have fallout new vegas for my laptop i am running windows vista...please need a reply thanks!

marxismoney: did you read the entire page here? you need to enable the console in the .ini files, found in three separate locations. depending on what version of the game you have, you may need to edit just one (hint: search for "allowconsole" and make sure it's set to =1 in all instances. it never really hurts to just make the change in all three of the files. if you still can't see the console after editing all three, then it's probably your keyboard or a bad install.

Also, check the microsoft e-home transciever bug below.

Console Commands on a Laptop?

For some reason the input for console commands will not open with the "`" key, I have also found that mashing every other key on my keyboard doesn't help either.

Have you tried looking in your fallout.ini? The command may not have been set. Also, check the microsoft e-home transciever bug below.


How about merging this with Fallout 3 console commands at e.g. Gamebryo console commands? Ausir(talk)

I don't like the idea. People come for console commands for a specific game. Mixing each game's console commands together will be confusing. Having them on separate games makes it more organized. Insane! 02:35, December 2, 2010 (UTC)

I wouldn't like a merge either. Merging invariably causes me to scroll (much) more. I do not consider scrolling to be user friendly. Neither does Jacob Nielsen. :) --DanTheHitman 15:32, December 2, 2010 (UTC)

marxismoney 07:00, December 10, 2010 (UTC) : sorry i gotta agree with original poster. they're both about console commands. it just makes for a cleaner wiki having them together.

Meh, different games. Instead of merging it needs cleaning. Insane! 21:06, December 11, 2010 (UTC)

Two different games, and one that applies to both. Not all commands for FO3 work on FONV. In addition ALL Gamebryo commands work on both games. meaning that there should actually be THREE different posts. Sunday, June 26 2011 at 7:35 (-600 GMT)

Agreed... It should stay as two different pages. I don't think separating them makes the wiki any "cleaner". Just more confusing. Keimei~ 03:43, July 23, 2011 (UTC)

I'm not a fan of merging either. Even though I know most are interchangeable when I need one I still look for game specific.--Kingclyde 22:59, August 1, 2011 (UTC)

Repconn alarm

Is there a command to reset the alarm at Repconn Headquarters ?

Great Khans

"This is important if the player has killed too many Great Khans early in the game and obtained a "vilified" reputation - the player will then be unable to convince the Great Khans to ally with NCR. "

Not necessary at all. If you are vilified by the Khans you can still walk into Red Rock Canyon just by putting on some Khan armor and they'll all talk to you, even Papa Khan. You'll get the quest from Regis and as you complete it your reputation will rise back up with the Khans.

marxismoney : you posted this on this page? this is the console commands talk page. you should try actually reading it all before deciding that you can't do something. the fact is i can think of at least 3 ways to fix your issue off the top of my head, and one of them has already been said by the above poster, which is this:

just play the darn game, dude. once you have an understanding about how it works, then come back here and look through all the cool debugging things you can do with it.

how can i make my self invisible?

Is there a way to make yourself invisible to mobs and look invisible, just like using a stealth boy. or is there a way to make the stealth boy last forever?

Nope. Only tlb will make dark areas light, this is good for sniping and being sneaky. End of story. Insane! 22:49, December 24, 2010 (UTC)

wouldn't be hard to mod a permanent stealth boy. --Pongsifu 22:54, December 24, 2010 (UTC)

Need Help with Faction Hostility Console Commands-Brotherhood Hostile Without Provocation After Completing Brotherhood Questline

I have completed the Brotherhood questline and become a Paladin. I'm not wearing any kind of faction armor, am Liked by the Brotherhood, and have not committed any hostile actions against them. However, the faction is inexplicably hostile to me; whenever I enter the bunker Paladin Ramos and any other BoS members immediately open fire. What console commands can I use to get the BoS to no longer be hostile to the player? I've tried using the reputation commands with no effect; it did inexplicably work once, but that save was lost, and I have not had any success with the same commands since. 06:08, December 30, 2010 (UTC)Tazar

finding out your rep

Is there any console command enabling you to find out what exact number is your fame/infamy with selected faction? (done soo many NCR side quests, it always said NCR Fame gained, but still only 'liked', want to know how much more it's gonna take) --Ae jarv 13:54, December 31, 2010 (UTC)

item room

does anybody know the console command to get to the room with all the items?--Soul reaper magnum 02:48, January 14, 2011 (UTC)

'coc devarmory' but it only shows as a grey room (possibly disabled in official release?) there is apparently a mod to re-enable the room (slayerarmory) but it's a mod not a command

'coc testmentats' is similar and has been left in but it does not have all items (devarmory doesn't have all items either, i noticed ycs/186 wasn't there)

Is there a console command for wait and 3rd person camera?

Recently my hotkeys for Wait and 3rd Person do not work anymore no matter what I set it to, is there a command for it?

Changing the day of the week

Is there a command for changing the day of the week? There is a GetDayofWeek command that gives you the number of the day of the week (0 = Sunday), but I can't find any way to change what the game considers the day of the week to be. I'm trying to find a work-around for the bug that causes the day of the week to keep reverting to Sunday.


Is there a command to spawn mobs and NPC's? and if so, can characters from FO3 return? Cause mans1ayer spawns behemoths and such.

Mods allow him to spawn behemoths. I'm the best at space!

I had several attempts at spawning Jericho from FO3. Either I was using the wrong command/s or you can't. But you can definitely spawn, anyone and anything, hostile or not from FO:NV. If it's something automatically hostile, then to spawn mobs of them, you'll need to quickly enter the console after every spawn. Hope I helped. :)

NPC, phillipe the gourmand chef, failed to spawn

Is there a console command i could use to force philipe to spawn or at least one to change the quest stage such that i have gotten the recipe from him and either locked him in the pantry or convinced him to go away?

Targeting him with prid and moveto player just moves his quest marker to my character but he is unavailable to interact with.

Console Commands On 360/PS3?

Is there anyway to be able to have console commands on the Xbox 360 or PS3? I may have missed any talk about that but I was just wondering...

No, console commands can only be used on PC. (PC rules!)

You can however (if u have 2 copies of Fallout: New Vegas) use console commands on the PC and then transfer your save to the Xbox (idk about PS3)--KKotton 03:36, June 26, 2011 (UTC)


Hi, I'm having some problems with ressurecting NPCs. What does it mean by selecting? Searching? Picking up? Just looking at it?

You have to click on what you are resurrecting. It will say its name on top

(Try all other solutions first first) Very Odd Console Breaking bug (Microsoft E-Home Transciever)

There is a very odd bug, the Microsoft e-home transciever prevents the console from working properly in FO3 and NV. Some computers don't have this driver, it may just be laptops. Either way, try all other solutions first before settling on this.

(Right click My Computer -> Manage -> Device Manager (it's in one of the drop down menus, uninstall it (it is automatically reinstalled at reboot, and sometimes at random))). It's a microsoft driver, so that figures. Anyways, once this is uninstalled, the console will work as normal. Very odd, but I had to deal with it, and I saw on a forum somewhere (the nexus?) a bunch of others did as well.

You could always download the mod (sorry cannot remember the name) with the item in your inventory, that when you activate it, it automatically brings up the console, because, as I said, the transciever needs to be uninstalled after each reboot(and sometimes it'll randomly reinstall itself before a reboot, god I hate microsoft).

Very unlikely you have this bug, but if you do, it's a total b^tch.

Also worth mentioning that I unplugged my media center's remote control (the usb reciever bit) and now the console works. Personally I would look into editing the .ini before uninstalling microsoft drivers

Hardcore mode

So I've read up and apparently if you turn off hardcore mode at any point (regardless if you turn it back on) the game won't allow you that achievement. Since this temporarily makes achievements unrewardable, will using the console ruin your hardcore game? What if you accidentally hit the tilde command but don't type in anything? 22:27, June 30, 2011 (UTC)

Read the above post about how you will need to type a valid command and hit Enter in order to disable achievements. Also note that you can shut the console off completely, thereby removing any remote chance of you "accidentally" cheating on a hardcore achievement game.

I've received the Hardcore achievement and I've used the console quite a few times. The only time it matters is when you beat the game. As long as you do not use the console during the game session when you beat the game, you'll receive the achievement (assuming you have the other requirements fulfilled). Console commands only shut off achievements for that particular session, so you can just exit the game and load up your last save, and you should be fine. Hahnsoo 10:53, August 8, 2011 (UTC)

Faction Rep

I have tested faction rep and it appears to run a a much lower scale. From 0 to 15+ for infamy and fame. 0-2 is neutral and 4-7 is the second level for both and 8-14 is the third and 15+ is the last level. i.e. 4 fame and 2 infamy is liked. and 7 fame and 4 infamy is mixed and 15 fame and 0 infamy is idolized. I would like someone else to confirm this. I adjusted fame and infamy by 1 at a time and found it worked for both powder gangers and goodsprings. (Was with a new character so only reputations in pip boy at time) Brandon2k7 15:07, August 15, 2011 (UTC)

Killed Papa Khan to early.

Hey I killed Papa Khan before I talked to Colonel Moore about setting up the alliance between the Khan's and the NCR. His body is gone, is there a command where I can fix this? When I try to talk to Regis there are no options but goodbye.

You could always kill every Khan, that would advance the quest I think. Yes Man default.png 05:27, August 18, 2011 (UTC)

Idolized by White Glove but white gloves turned hostile.

This issue was raised before re: the brotherhood but no answer was given. I completed the Beyond the Beef quest, helped Mortimer by getting St. Clair. Checked in with Mortimer and completed the quest. Became idolized. Entered the banquet room to check out his speech and now the whole place is hostile to me. Disguises don't work. I've tried doing setally, resetquest, completquest, setstage to no avail. I even tried tweaking the faction reputation with this cheatconsole mod. No matter what, they attack me on sight. Please help.

Reputation editing help

I am thinking of using the console commands to make every faction in the game hostile to each other. This is easy enough, however I was wondering if it would be possible to make people in the same faction hostile to each other, such as by typing the same faction ID twice when it tells you to specify the two factions to edit. Anyone know if this would work? -- 22:40, November 14, 2011 (UTC)

Spawning non-interactive items

Would it be possible to spawn something like a barrel with a fire in it or other "background" items at an arbitrary location? Dbbo 03:02, 10 September 2012 (UTC)
