How to use Cheat Codes and Console Commands in XCOM: Chimera Squad

XCOM: Chimera Squad

How you want to play singleplayer games, be they on PC or console is your preference. Some players enjoy the challenge of learning and beating a new game. Some want to put the training wheels on and learn the game at a slower pace, possibly breaking down in more detail how each mechanic works by learning what satisfies it. Other players just want to jump in and dominate the competition.

Whatever your style, the option is usually there for all three of those approaches, mostly thanks to debug tools or command consoles. Developers have mostly moved away from the old school cheat codes systems common to earlier console generations though, now it’s all debugging tools and exploits. And with XCOM: Chimera Squad the trend is continuing.

So if you want to dominate in XCOM: Chimera Squad, here’s how to enable console commands to spawn resources and gear for your units.

Steam is a bit different than the normal method. Right-click on XCOM: Chimera Squad in your Steam library and select Properties. Go to launch options and type in “-allowconsole”. (without the quotes)
