However, a little cheating in single player games like Skyrim is not wrong, nothing wrong with a lot of cheating either. As games are a great mode of entertainment and it totally depends on an individual how they want to get entertained.

So, if you like playing Skyrim or the Skyrim Special Edition, you have come to the right place. Here in this article, we have listed out all the commands useful while playing it. You can use these commands to become invisible, fly or walk through walls. Also, you can change your looks, boost your skills, or get every item in the game and more.


Skyrim Console Commands

To enter PC Console Command Cheats in Skyrim, hit ~ (or `) – the key above Tab button on your keyboard, and enter these codes for the desired effect. An important thing to note that, the console commands are not case-sensitive. You can also turn on more than one at once.

Important Note: Few Console Commands can cause bugs to the game or break certain quests. So, if you’re unsure of your game’s stability, we recommend you do not save your game after using these commands and disable autosaves in the main menu.

Level Up Skyrim Commands

To increase your power and abilities in any given skill tree, you can use these console commands to your advantage in a couple of ways:

  • Add individual perks to each skill tree
  • Add experience to each skill tree (you will level up quickly)

>> To Add Skill Experience

This is the recommended method of increasing your skills or perks. This is our recommended method of increasing your skills/adding perks. You can try to craft a personalized set of skills with points, however, it may take a little longer but it will also grant extra experience, instead of entering into individual perk codes.
Use AdvSkill [[[Skill|Skill]] ID] [#], it will grant you a certain amount of experience in a given skill category. Every skill carries different experience points, thus we suggest you start with the skill you want to become highly proficient in or maybe all.
So, the following table shows the list of experience points that will increase each skill by one level. As you level up, you will notice an increase in the amount of required XP, so you can use player.setlevel [#] command.
Alchemy alchemy 506
Alteration alteration 132
Archery marksman 43
Block block 86
Conjuration conjuration 188
Destruction destruction 192
Heavy Armor heavyarmor 104
Illusion illusion 86
Light Armor lightarmor 173
Lockpicking lockpicking 7
One-Handed onehanded 110
Pickpocket pickpocket 37
Restoration restoration 197
Sneak sneak 20
Speech speechcraft 1914
Two-Handed twohanded 179

>> To Add Individual Perks

To add individual perks, use the console command player.addperk [perk ID]
(Check our list of Perk IDs on the Item Codes page).

For example, to add the Sneaking perk ‘Silent Roll,’ enter
player.addperk 105F23 into the command console. Alternatively, you can also try this process by using the player.setlevel ##
