How to Use the Developer Console in Metro Exodus
First of all, you will have to enable the developer console to use console commands. The console is not enabled by default, so you will have to work your way around this issue:
- First, download the Metro Exodus Cheat Engine 7.1 by AltSierra117 et al. With this Cheat Engine Table you can enable the Dev Console for Metro Exodus, allowing to change many aspects in-game, such as game difficulty, FOV, create a game checkpoint/savegame, change map-to-map with default starting weapons or carry previous ones to any other map. Enable the script and use F1 to toggle the console.
- Next, download and enable the developer console script. You will now be able to bring up the console with F1.
