Cheats - Warzone 2100 Cheat Codes

Unable to beat it? If all else fails, cheat...

 

Cheats for Windows, Mac and Linux

For PS1 cheats, see bottom of this page.

Enabling Cheat Mode

To enable cheat mode you need to do one of the following depending on the version of Warzone:

Version v2.3.x, v3.x and above (the latest versions):

  • Press Shift + Backspace during a game – this enables cheat mode and debug mode at the same time.

Version 2.2 or earlier on Windows or Linux:

  • Enable cheat mode via command line, then during game press Shift + Backspace to activate debug mode.

Version 2.2 or earlier on Mac:

For really old versions on Windows:

  • Just press t to enter chat mode, type the cheat code and press Return (no need to enter cheat or debug mode).

For old versions of the game, there is some additional information in the official wiki: Cheats in Old Warzone Versions

Multiplayer Cheat Mode

In Warzone 3.1 and above, it's possible to enable cheat mode in multiplayer games but it works a bit differently. You have to request cheat mode by pressing Shift + Backspace and then wait for the majority of other players to approve your request.

When a request is made, all players will see a message about the request in their console. To approve the request, they have to press Enter to open their console, then type "cheat on" (without the quotes) and then press Enter again to confirm.
