This post will provide all the console commands for The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. Bethesda Game Studios developed and published The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, a fantasy action role-playing video game. The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion is the fourth installment in the Elder Scrolls series, following 2002's The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, and was released for Microsoft Windows and Xbox 360 in 2006 and for PlayStation 3 in 2007.
The game's main story takes place in the fictional province of Cyrodiil, where the player character tries to thwart the Mythic Dawn's plans to open portals to a demonic realm called Oblivion.
The Elder Scrolls IV Console Commands Guidelines
As with The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, console commands are only available in the PC version of the game.
- Codes are not case sensitive; “a” is the same as “A.”
- Codes are shown as:
Code <Variable> <#>
>are not entered with the code,
- # is replaced by the desired quantity.
- The code to add an item is listed as:
AddItem <ItemID> <#>
- If you wanted to add 500 gold, it would be entered as:
additem F 500
- If you wanted to add 500 gold, it would be entered as:
Prefix?refers to a cheat code requiring a prefix to work as intended.
setlevel <#>?will have no effect as there is no defined target.
player.setlevel <#>?will set your level to value of #, e.g., player.setlevel 60 will set your character's level to 60.
Targeting Objects & NPCs
To target an object, open the console and click the object. Its name will appear at the top center of the screen. An item targeted in the console is also called a reference.
Shortcode refers to a code having a short form that can be used interchangeably with its original long-form version.
- For instance,
ToggleFogOfWar?is the long code form for toggling the fog of war from the map.
TFOW?is the short form of the same command and has the same effect.
TES: Oblivion Console Commands List
As most cheat and console commands guides on the web, we have separated the complete list of Oblivion console commands into four categories:
- Basic Toggle console commands
- Targeted console commands
- Quest console commands
- Player console commands
- Miscellaneous console commands
Basic Toggle Oblivion Console Commands
The commands below primarily affect the game and the gameplay itself, by altering the environment (toggling different environmental elements on/off, enabling god/invincibility mode), and more:
|showsubtitle||Toggles NPC subtitles|
|tcai||Toggle combat AI|
When used without a target, toggles noclip on the player.
|pcb||Purge cell buffer|
|tdetect||Toggle AI detection|
|tdt||Toggle debug text|
|tfc||Toggle free-flying camera|
|tfow||Toggle fog of war; entire local area map revealed.|
|tfh||Toggle full help|
|tgm||Toggles God Mode|

|tmm <#>||Toggle all map markers|
|tt||Toggle trees; All trees turn invisible, but still clip.|
|twf||Toggle wireframe mode|
|twr||Toggle water radius|
|tws||Toggle water rendering|
Targeted commands allow you to change the behavior of NPCs, or affect the player, their attributes, and their inventory.
Most “Target commands” can be used on the player by targeting or using the prefix
Player. in the console window. Using
Player.Disable will crash the game when used on the player, while others may produce unexpected results.
|additem <BaseID> <qty>||Adds item to inventory|
|disable||Disables an object or NPC, removing it from the world.|
|enable||Enables an object or NPC, bringing it back into the world.|
|removeitem <BaseID> <qty>||Removes item from player character's inventory|
|equipitem <BaseID> <NoUnequip>||Force equips an Item, must be in target's inventory.|
NoUnEquip 1 prevents the item from being unequipped. 0 or leaving it blank will equip it with normal behavior.

|dispelallspells||Dispel all spell-based magic effects from the target. Does not work on enchantment effects affecting the target.|
|createfullactorcopy||Clones target actor.|
Warning: if you copy a follower and then disable them, the game will act as if they were still following you, thus not allowing you to recruit any more members of that faction until that clone is killed or sent away.

|startcombat||Starts target combat|
|startconversation <refID>, <topic parameter?>||Starts NPC conversation. WARNING: Failed use may cause players to get stuck, NPCs to freeze, and random dialogue to play.|
You can use Oblivion quest commands to toy around with complete quests, reveal quest targets and see different tabs of the quest log.

|caqs||Completes all quest stages.|
