So, you want some CK3 console commands and cheats? Crusader Kings 3 is a grand strategy game of great complexity, and planning. You could spend hours establishing your realm, raising your armies, and increasing your income – or alternatively, when nobody’s looking, you could give yourself a little boost to prestige, perform a sneaky stabbing on someone who’s annoying you, or simply conjure up a whopping great army from nowhere.
If you don’t feel like playing by the book and want to have a go at scribbling all over it instead, there are a wealth of console commands available to you that can set pretty much every modifier in the game to your chosen value. With these cheat codes you’re free to nudge the stats in your favour, or use them as tools to customise your experience and play out whatever scenarios you have in mind.
Unlike previous Paradox strategy games, in order to access these ‘cheats’, you have to launch the game in debug mode. This will disable achievements, but it will also allow you to access the command console like you can in other games. We’ve put together this guide to walk you through the process.
