Total War Warhammer 3: Console Commands and Cheats

The four Chaos Gods in Total War: Warhammer 3 can have a big effect on the game’s map, especially if you play as one of their champions. But the best thing about full mod support is that it lets you use the power console commands to become an equal or even greater god.

Even though cheating isn’t the way to play Total War: Warhammer 3, you might not always want to start a new campaign when your Skaven friend shows his true colours. You can even things out by getting a sudden influx of gold or stealing regions from your enemies. Console commands let you do this without dancing to Tzeentch’s tune.

  • tele – first select a character, then select another character or a settlement as a teleport target, after that typing tele will teleport the character

  • spawn subtype faction_key units – spawns an army next to selected character or settlement, use one of the general subtypes, faction_key and units are optional

You have a lot of choices, from giving yourself a small or big boost to changing your character or the map in powerful ways.

But if you try to add lords or units from other factions to your army, the console commands mod for Total War: Warhammer III might not work the way you want it to. In practice, they can T-pose or not work in battle, which requires table edits that are “beyond the scope/purpose of this mod.”

Here’s what you need to know about the console commands and cheats in Total War: Warhammer III. Check out the plans for the game after it comes out for more help with it.
