Oblivion is Bethesda’s massive RPG release of 2006, taking fans of the Elder Scrolls Series to the heart of the Imperial homework do Cyrodil. While the size of Skyrim now dwarfs Oblivion, it is still an Elder Scrolls game that fans still come back and enjoying for over 15 years. If you fancy going crazy on one of the Elder Scrolls’ best games, here are some useful Oblivion console commands and cheats to play around with.
How to use Oblivion Console Commands
If you want to use Oblivion console commands, you’ll need to play the game on PC. The reason why is because the console only opens at the push of the tilde key “~”. Pressing the key will open a new text box where you can input cheats into. You can typically find the tilde key to the left of “1” or below the escape key “ESC”. On some keyboards, the tilde key may share the same space as the hashtag key.
If you plan to use a cheat that requires an ID, you can find spell IDs, Item Ids all on the official Oblivion Console command Wiki. Unlike other younger Bethesda RPG titles, this game essentially identified the need for a text file in a game’s directory, helping players work out ID’s so they can cheat to their heart’s content.
