Subnautica Console Commands and Cheats

Subnautica has been in early access for a long time but now it is out of Early Access and we finally have the full game. Subnautica features a rich underwater world full of fascination and discovery.

You are put in the flippers of a lone spaceship crash survivor who must adapt and survive in the hostile underwater environment of Subnautica. Developed by Unknown Worlds Entertainment, Subnautica is a stellar survival RPG set in the depths of vast oceans full of life.

How to Enable Console

Before you can enter any Console Command, you must access the Command Console. To access it, you need to first enable it from the game settings. Press ‘F3’ to open a Sub-Menu and then press ‘F8’ to free the mouse. This will enable you to uncheck and check items on the menu.

Now uncheck ‘Disable Console’ and press ‘F8’ and ‘F3’ again to close the Menu. The Console Menu is now accessible by pressing the (~) key. Every time you start the game, you will be required to follow this procedure to enable the Command Console. Once the Command Console is accessible, you can use the below commands for their respective functions.
