Developed using the Gamebryo engine, Fallout 3 shares quite a lot with Fallout: New Vegas. One of these shared features is the ability to enter console commands and cheats for various in-game effects. Entering these Fallout 3 console commands is fairly easy and their effects can help you survive in the Wasteland with ease. As mentioned earlier, the effects of Fallout 3 cheats vary greatly. You cannot only turn your character into an invincible character but also have complete control over things like weather, etc.

Fallout 3 Cheats and Console Commands – How to Use

If you have played other games by Bethesda, you should already know everything you need to know about using cheat commands in Fallout 3. If you do not, the process is fairly simple and easy to understand. In order to enter a console command, you need to press (~) or (`) key which is usually found under the (Esc) key on a wide range of keyboards.

Pressing the correct key should allow you to see a text-box on the screen. Once you see the text-box, all that you need to do is to enter the cheat commands as seen below and press the (Enter) key to see the effect immediately. In this article, we have detailed all available console cheat commands for Fallout 3 that you can use in the game for various in-game effects.

Fallout 3 Inventory Console Commands

These Fallout 3 console commands and cheats essentially allow you to make changes to your inventory. Using these console commands, you cannot only add items to your inventory but also remove them, equip certain items, and even repair them.

player.additem
This allows you to add an item to your inventory at full HP. For instance, you can use the command like player.additem A1B34 10 without ‘‘ to see the desired effect. It is important to remember that you do not need to write the brackets to see the effects.

player.additemhealthpercent
Using this console command, you can add a specific item to your inventory, having a certain condition. However, one important thing that you need to know is to specify the quality of your desired item in decimal form. For instance, player.additemhealthpercent A36B 10 0.75 will provide you with 10 units of a certain item at 75% quality.

player.setweaponhealthperc
