Grounded Cheats & Console Commands

If you'd like to run around Grounded without getting demolished by vicious bugs, then there are some cheats and commands you can use to alleviate this issue. Unfortunately, these only work for the PC, so if you're on Xbox, you'll have to hope they add in some cheats in the future.

To use cheats in Grounded, you will have to download a third party program. This is called Universal Unreal Engine 4 Unlocker, and it's pretty well-known and has been used for a variety of games. As with any program, you download and use it at your own risk!

Once you have it downloaded and installed you can open up Grounded. Go to the UUU program and in the General tab, you need to select a process to inject the DLL into. If you're using the Xbox Gamepass launcher, you will find it named as Maine in the options. It will likely be the top process, but the name could be different if you're using Steam.

Select the correct process and then hit the Inject DLL option. You will see some popup windows in Grounded that show that the program has been started and is working. You might want to start a new world if you're using cheats so you don't mess up your old one, but it's up to you.

Now that you know this is working and are in a game. Hit the ~ key on the top left of your keyboard underneath Escape. This will open up the console at the bottom of the screen and look like this:

You can now type in commands in this to make changes to the game. Here's a list of cheats and commands that you can use:

  • sg.PostProcessQuality 0 - Removes the depth of field blurriness on the map.
  • god - God mode, which means you won't take any damage. You don't get unlimited stamina or hunger though, but they won't kill you if they are reduced.
  • timespeed # - Either slow down, speed up, or stop time completely. The higher the number the faster time will go in game, and the lower the number is the slower it will go. If you enter 0 as your speed then it will stop time completely.
  • toggledebugcamera - Gives you the ability to fly around in the game as a camera. It's not great for flying long distances.
  • teleport - Use this command to instantly jump to a location where your crosshair is pointing. This is hit and miss sometimes, it appears you have a limit on how far you can teleport.
  • pause - Pauses the game. Repeat the command to un-pause.
  • kill - Kills your character and takes you back to your spawn point.
  • DamageTarget # - Will damage a target for the designated amount of damage. This works for bugs and general objects in the game.
  • ResearchAllItems - Analyzes all the items in the game that you would have to take to the Field Stations.
  • UnlockAllRecipes - Unlocks all the available items that can be crafted in the game.
  • RepairAllItems - Repairs all of the items you have in your inventory.
  • FullRestore - Completely fills up your stamina, thirst, hunger, and health.
  • AddScience # - Gives you an amount of Raw Science that you have designated.
  • AddWater # - Fills up your thirst based on the number you've entered.
  • AddFood # - Fills up your hunger based on the number you've entered.
  • ChangeSize # - Change your size based on the number you enter. This is a bit buggy, so use with caution.
  • BuildAllBuildings - Will construct all of your current blueprints you have laid out.
  • show - Lists graphic options and settings.
  • summon [file name] - This will summon a bug, item, plant, or whatever you add here if you have the correct file name.

A command has been found by commenter VooDooShamane to open up what appears to be a test world with a lot of the upcoming additions to the game coming up. You need to enter this command before you enter into a game save. You won't be able to save, but you can check out some of the awesome new stuff!

  • open AR_00_World_Dev - Opens the developer's world, where a bunch of new things are available.
  • open SurvivalTest - Opens up a developer's test ground level.

File Names

These are a bunch of the file names you can use with the "summon" command to spawn items in the game. Big thanks to all of the people in the comments who have helped contribute many of these!
