Fallout New Vegas Cheats and Console Commands

To open the console, tap the backquote (`) or tilde (~) key (they’re the same key). The game will pause, the UI will vanish, and you’ll see a cursor appear in the bottom left hand corner of the screen. That’s where you input your console commands. After typing a command, press enter. You may see a notification of what your code did, but not always. Press the tilde key.

Note: Depending on your version of the game, you may need to add the “-console” command line parameter to launch the game before the cheat console will load.
