XCOM 2 Console Commands

XCOM 2 has been out for some time now, and we suspect you have put a lot of hours into playing this game. Because of replayability of the game, the game has continued to receive overwhelming response from enthusiasts as well as the modding community. If you want to remove some boring elements from the game or just want to give it a fresh coat of paint, you can do that via the command console. 

You can access various game features via cheat codes that are not usable by default like the ability to teleport your unit to whichever location you want, enabling and disabling fog of war, enable or disable invincibility for all your soldiers and many more using about 38 different commands. In addition to that, you can add items like pistols, rifles and hair triggers using the hundreds of item commands.  

Some commands are marked with Avenger and Mission Tags, the Avenger commands only work in Avenger and commands with Mission tag only work when you are in Mission. Some commands are DLC specific and only work if you have that DLC installed. 

In order for these features to work, you need to have command console enabled.
