Console commands and how to enable cheats in Risk of Rain 2

Here's the full list of console commands Risk of Rain 2, including how to access the developer command console and enable cheats.

1

Like many modern PC games, Risk of Rain 2 includes a developer console that players can access in order to adjust several different game settings and parameters. As players might expect, the developer console easy to access, and it's also the only way to enable cheats in the game. Those looking to make the most out of the latest Hopoo Games release can learn about all of these different options and adjustments by browsing through the complete list of console commands in Risk of Rain 2.


How to access developer console in Risk of Rain 2

Accessing the developer console in Risk of Rain 2 is simple: press the Ctrl, Alt, and ` keys simultaneously. If the final key—the grave accent key—seems hard to find, worry not: it's the key beneath the Escape key, immediately to the left of the number 1 on most common keyboards.

By pressing Ctrl + Alt + ` together, players will bring up the developer console. From here they'll be able to access a number of different commands and adjust several different game parameters. It's here that players will need to change the value of the "cheats" parameter to "1" in order to enable cheats in Risk of Rain 2. Do note that setting the cheats value to 1 will disable achievements and stat tracking, and will also lock progression until the game has been restarted.
