EU4 cheats – a quick guide to console commands

EU4 cheats – a quick guide to console commands

So, you’re looking for some EU4 cheats, are you? Perhaps you’ve also seen our Victoria 2 cheats guide, or maybe our primer to Hearts of Iron 4 cheats? Paradox grand strategy games are big, complex, and they can last a long time. Things can also go very wrong – so wrong that not evening save-scumming can help you – so you may find yourself in a need of a helping hand.

Like most games, Europa Universalis IV has an in-game console that allows you to input commands to achieve various effects. EU4 especially is a mature and quite intricate strategy game, with a myriad of goals you might need help accomplishing that may require targeting at province, or even country level.

We’ve put together a guide to cheats and console commands in EU4. Unlike similar articles we’ve done for other grand strategy games, we’re not going to print the full list of commands available. A full list is available here if you want to look at it. We’re also going to give a shout out to Strand, whose excellent Steam guide provided a basis for our own text below.
