The Witcher 3 is widely considered to be the seminal RPG experience, with an excellent blend of monster-hunting action, great stories, and even some genuinely well-written characters. The game is also huge, with well over 200 hours of content if you’re the sort of person who likes to wring every last bit of entertainment time they can out of a game before they’re done with it. If you’ve already played through the main storyline of The Witcher 3, these console commands will help you to get even more out of the game.

However, there are a few extra steps that you’re going to have to take, mostly because when the developers finished the game they blocked off access to the command console. Luckily, we can show you how to fix that.

How to enable the console in The Witcher 3

The Witcher 3 Spawning Bandits

Because the command console was initially made inaccessible by CDPRojekt Red, you’ll have to install a 3rd-party mod to make it accessible again. You’ll need to download a Console Command Enabler for your version of The Witcher 3. Check your version on the main menu (it should be just under the logo and then click on your version below:

Version 1.31

Version 1.32

If for some reason the game doesn’t boot after you’ve installed the mod, you might need to get your hands on a redistributable file from Microsoft to fix a problem with Visual C++ that might stop the game booting with this mod installed. You can download it directly from Microsoft then simply run the installer and try to boot The Witcher 3 again.

Useful Console Commands in the Witcher 3

The Witcher 3 Monster Spawn

There is a huge variety of different console commands available to you, so we’ve separated several of the most important ones into different categories below to make them easier to find.

The Witcher 3 Spawning Console Commands

It can be quite helpful (and funny) to spawn creatures, NPCs, and other creatures into your game world whenever you fancy it. Like most commands in The Witcher 3, they’re pretty easy to enter, but be careful with them. If you spawn too much stuff, you’re going to melt your hardware into soup. Oh, and make sure the game is paused or you’re going to have a bad time.

Command EffectConsole Commands
Spawn two Bandits (around level 10)spawnt(63)
Spawns a group of witch hunters (Levels 18-30)spawnt(09)
Spawn a level 1 Wild Hunt Warrior spawnt(140)
Spawn a Level 12 Novigrad Guardspawnt(64)
Spawn a group of Redanian Soldiers (Levels 13-15)spawnt(92)
Spawn a Monster or Animalspawn(‘name of creature’)

The final command is the most useful if you just want to fight some random 1 vs 1 fights against specific monsters or creatures for some reason. You can summon almost any monster/animal in the game this way, for example, you can summon an Ifrit (fire monster) by typing in spawn(‘ifrit’) into the command console. The best part about this command is that you can use it to make groups of humanoid enemies fight off against monsters, which is hilariously good fun.

The Witcher 3 Item Console Commands

Another insanely useful thing for you to be able to do is to summon items into the game. As you can probably expect from an RPG that is the sheer scale of The Witcher 3, there are thousands of different items in the game and you can pretty much summon any of them with almost the same command:

additem('itemname')

Obviously, you should replace itemname with the name of your actual item. In most cases, that name is exactly what is written in your inventory or in tool tips. For example, if you type in additem(‘Iron ore’) you’ll be given a piece of iron ore. Just bear in mind that the commands are case-sensitive and words after the first one aren’t capitalized. You can also modify the command like this if you want to get a certain number of these items:

additem('itemname','amount') 

So, if you needed 10 iron ores to craft something, you’d type in additem(‘Iron ore’,’10’) and you’d get 10 pieces of iron ore in your inventory. You can also do this with monster spawning, which can lead to hilarious results, but ones that are more likely to destroy your hardware if you’re not careful.

The Witcher Cheat and Utility Console Commands

The Witcher 3 Fighting

Once you’ve had your fun spawning in items and enemies to mess around with, you can move on to some of these commands below. This sort of stuff is closer to what you might say is a cheat, so they could have an adverse effect on your story experience, but if you’ve played the game enough, then it’s probably not an issue for you.

The Witcher 3 Teleportation cheats

There are a few commands you can use to teleport around the map if you haven’t unlocked the fast travel points. Bear in mind, if you use the commands below you should make sure that you’ve cleared the prologue first, or you’re going to end up stuck somewhere. It’s also important that you activate god mode before you teleport anywhere, as you’ll spawn high in the sky and immediately die if you’re not invincible. A better way is to use the commands below that reveal fast travel point, but bear in mind it’s not always possible to reverse this command once you’re done.
