How to Use Console Commands in Fallout New Vegas

Just in case you’ve never used console commands or cheats before, let’s quickly go over how to use them. Just like in Fallout 4, all you have to do is hit the ~ key on PC, type in the console command, then hit Enter to confirm it. You cannot do this with a gamepad, which means that cheats are not available in the console versions of the game.

And those are all of the available console commands and cheats in Fallout New Vegas.
