Don’t Starve Console Commands And Cheats List (Updated)

Don’t Starve is an adventure game launched in 2013. It is developed by Klei Entertainment. The game is quite challenging and stimulates the players to think ahead and out of the box. Like every game, there are cheats developed for Don’t Starve as well.

Many of you will be in a misconception that additional software will be required to play this game with cheats enabled. However, this isn’t the case. All you have to do is enable the option of Console and later on in-game, you can use the console to type cheats and apply them. We always recommend not to download and install programs which claim to enable cheats on your game. Just follow the steps listed below.

  1. Click the Start button and in the dialogue box search for “Klei”.
  2. Click the folder that returns in the search results. Here you will find the games that are installed in your computer developed by Klei Entertainment. Click on the folder that says “Don’t Starve”.
  3. Once you open the folder, you will find a config file named “Settings”. Open it.

  1. Once you open the config file, it will open in notepad. It will consist of essential data that the game uses as a reference for its settings. Browse through the lines until you find the one which says “ENABLECONSOLE”.

  1. This line is used to enable console which you can use to type in cheats in-game. In order to enable it, make sure that the line looks something like this “ENABLECONSOLE = true”.

  1. Launch Don’t Starve using its launcher. Once you are in-game, press the “ ~ “ key. This is the default key set to bring up the console window. You can change this hotkey anytime through settings.

  1. Once the console is up, you can type any cheats and press Enter for it to apply. Such as typing “c_godmode()” enables god mode and increases your speed and makes you invulnerable.

  1. Below are a number of cheats you can use for different purposes.
