Crusader Kings 3 Console Commands

In this Console Commands guide for Crusader Kings 3 we will tell you how to open console along with a brief discussion on the uses of the console and then we will take a look at all the commands, their uses, and description.

Console Commands in CK3 can be used to modify every aspect of your character ,including their age, traits and any modifier you can imagine.

Let’s get started:

How to Open the Console

Before you start the game, go to preferences and in launch options mark checked on debug_mode.

For opening the console, you have to use the combination of Shift key + 2 key or ALT key + 2 key + 1 key. You can also use Shift key + ALT key + C key or Shift key + 3 Key.

Hopefully one of these options will work for you and the console will open up.

If it does not help, there is another way to use console commands, which is by creating a batch file on Windows 10.

Here is how you can do it:

  • Open notepad.
  • Paste “start shell:AppsFolder\ParadoxInteractive.ProjectTitus_zfnrdv2de78ny!App -debug_mode” inside the notepad.
  • Save this file as a .bat file.
  • Save it on the desktop.

Run this file and your console will start.

Why use console commands

These commands give you an unfair advantage over your opponent and so can be called cheats, so use them at your own risk.

There are some testing commands as well but we will not be discussing those. Here we will only take a look at the most useful cheat console commands available in the game.
