The Forest Cheats For PC

We've compiled a list of The Forest cheats and The Forest console commands that we think are the best for enhancing your gameplay or just helping you through some of the tedious in-game grinds.

Is there cheats in The Forest?

The Forest doesn't have standard cheats but it does offer a console command system (sometimes called admin commands) that achieves a similar outcome. The most important part of this is that you can still save your file and continue playing with no issues after enabling these commands. Some of the previously accessible commands have been permanently moved to the in-game menu system.

Can you use cheats in multiplayer in The Forest?

You may be thinking "will these cheats work in multiplayer?" and the answer is yes. All of the console commands will work when playing multiplayer and still allow you to continue a saved game.

How do you enable cheats in The Forest?

Console Commands first need to be enabled from the game's title menu. While you are on the title menu (before you load your save file) type developermodeon to enable the use of console commands. If you typed it correctly, you will be able to see the console command menu after pressing F1. Any console code that has an on option can be turned off by swapping out the on for off. Note: These cheats/console commands all work in multiplayer.

There is a creative mode or peaceful mode but you must beat the game first to unlock it.  If the story is not something you are interested in completing you will be better off just using console commands to achieve the same result.
