Consoles commands have always been a great way to get more resources and items in the game without any kind of grinding. This makes them pretty helpful albeit a nefarious way of progressing through the game.
In any case, keep reading on and find out about Satisfactory console commands and what they do.
What are the console commands used for in Satisfactory?
In Satisfactory, console commands are mainly used for accessing the debug data that lets you know about player information. For example, coordinates and radiation sources. You can also access features that are not present in the in-game settings such as disabling fog and anti-aliasing.
However, you cannot use the console command to cheat as it does not allow you to spawn any items. This aspect is actually well-respected in the community as it allows players to not even think about making Satisfactory a bit easier to play.
You can turn on console commands by pressing the Control, Shift, and L keys together and then open up the window by pressing the”`” tilde key. This will open the console command window, and you can make it even bigger if you press the tilde key again. When it comes to the commands themselves, they are pretty similar to the commands you get for Unreal Engine.
As the debug commands will always show up when you open the console command window and stay at the upper left corner of the screen, here’s a list of all of the non-debug commands:
- ? (without pressing enter) – Shows a list of all commands with brief explanations
