Mount & Blade II Bannerlord (1.4.3) – How to Enable Cheat/Console Commands (Developer)

A guide on how to enable cheat/console commands and developer console in Mount & Blade II Bannerlord (update: 1.4.3)

How to Cheat (Console Commands)

How to Activate the Developer Console?

As of e1.4.2, you can just press ALT + tilde to open the console. No mod required.

This may vary, depending on your keyboard layout.

If you are playing an earlier version, you’re gonna need this.

Note: Steam achievements become disabled when you enable cheats in the launcher.

Developer Console (How to Enable)

  • Go to Documents\Mount and Blade II Bannerlord\Configs
  • Open “engine_config.txt”
  • Look for “cheat_mode = 0” and change the value to “1”

Once you have complete steps above and activate developer console, you can use only the following 8 commands after starting a new campaign.

Activating Cheat Mode

If you want to cheat, you will have to activate cheat mode.

The command is config.cheat_mode 1. Press Enter to activate.

You can deactivate cheat mode by entering the command again, but with a 0 instead of a 1.

  1. Ctrl + Left Click: Teleports you to the selected location on the world map.
  2. Ctrl + H: Fully heals you.
  3. Ctrl + Shift + H: Fully heals your horse.
  4. Ctrl + F4: Knocks an enemy unconscious.
  5. Ctrl + Shift + F4: Knocks all enemies unconscious.
  6. Ctrl + F2: Knocks out one of your own soldiers.
  7. Ctrl + F3: Knocks out the player.
  8. Ctrl + Shift + F3: Knocks your horse unconscious.

You do not have to start a new story to use the cheats. I’ve used cheated on my loads from before activating them and after without any issues at all. (ty Robert)

from Geogie Further note on using cheatmode: You have complete access to all the items in the world in an unlimited quantity. Once you activate it in the config file you can load the game, then open your inventory. On the left side of it, where there are normally pickup items or it’s simply empty, you will see all items the game has. That means armor, weapons, goods, horses etc.

I sure many already noticed. It kinda spoils the game though, but it helps with the money problem and also lots of quests (give me goods quests). Useful to compare various armors, weapons and horses to see what is best.

P.S: game can be normally played, it shows only when you are not buying or picking anything (after battle for example)

Spawning Items

You can spawn items with the campaign.give_item_to_main_party command.
The syntax is campaign.give_item_to_main_party [ItemName] [Amount].

While you can also spawn items in the inventory screen, you can only get 10 units at a time. If you need 1000 units of something, using the console is much faster.

Spawning Troops

You can spawn troops with the campaign.give_troops command.
The syntax is campaign.give_troops [TroopId] [Number].

Type campaign.give_troops help to get a list of all available troops.
This does not show all troops in the game, though.
