The Elder Scrolls series lighted up the whole gaming universe with the launch of its fifth installment, Skyrim, in November 2011. It has been over 8 years and still, the game has a special place in the hearts of many gaming junkies. Bethesda managed to pull off an absolute ripper. The game’s visuals, combat styles, dungeon designs, ability to use both weapons and magic at the same, and the most important of them all, the disposal of the character class system were highly praised by the fans and the critics. Additionally, Bethesda heavily improved the open-world format of Skyrim which certainly helped in full exploration and development of the main character.
Skyrim came out a long time ago, so we can’t blame you if feel a bit bored by the original features of the game. That’s where the console commands rescue you! I mean, how many times can you go through the whole game legitimately? Sometimes, it’s good to see some things from a different perspective. These console commands will tempt you to play Skyrim again but with a fresher approach than before. The console commands work like a boon for all the PC players. Use these cheats and explore Skyrim on a whole new level.
How can we use Skyrim console commands?
First of all, you have to head to the developer console of Skyrim. And how will you do that? Well, we believe you know how the tilde (~) key looks. Press it to unfold the developer console. You have to type the console commands in it which we have mentioned in this article below. Make sure you type them right. Now, type that tilde key again to go back to your game. Just snatch the gifted rewards and enjoy the game. If you want to cease your command from being in action then type the same ongoing command to stop it.
But you must know that Skyrim also suffers from the problem of British English Vs American English. It means that the process which we mentioned above only works on American English keyboards. So, by any chance, if you are using a British English keyboard then use the grave (`) key to open the developer console.
Other than using these console commands solely, you can also utilize them by combining them with other commands to receive more rewards or witness some unique things in the game. But there’s one problem though. Despite getting an amazing critical reception from all around the world, the game is no short of the irritating bugs or glitches. Some PC users have used the combos of these console commands and ended up wrecking their whole game or shutting down their systems. That’s why we advise you to keep saving your game regularly and also create a back up in case of the above-mentioned emergencies.
