Instructions

To use a cheat code in most versions of Hexen, one simply types the code while playing (this also applies while in automap mode). After the last letter has been entered, a message of acknowledgement will appear at the top of the screen. The status bar and ingame view may also change, depending on the effects of the code. All of the codes for the original game work in all source ports, unless otherwise noted.

All cheat codes are disabled in multiplayer games and in the Titan/Pope/Archimage (level 5) skill level; however, some cheats (such as mapsco) are not disabled when entering this difficulty level.

Tips

Two (or more) cheat codes with overlapping letters can be activated without typing the overlapping part(s) twice. A useful example is "satan" and "nra" which can both be activated by typing "satanra" for both "god mode" and full weapons/ammo in the full version. Another example is "sherlocksmith" to activate both "sherlock" and "locksmith" (all puzzle items and all keys).
