Cheats

Developer mode

To enable the developer mode, you need to start the game with the "-devmode" command line parameter (either edit the start menu shortcut or create a batch file containing "Crysis2.exe -devmode". When the developer mode is enabled, you'll be able to use the following key bindings:

  • F1: toggles between first and third person view
  • F2: teleports you to the next checkpoint
  • F3: switches between fly mode, noclip mode, and back to normal
  • F10: removes many textures and shows polygons
  • Num1: gives quite a few weapons (notably the JAW and L-TAG) and refills ammunition

Update: After some research it has been found out that the "-devmode" cannot be used after patching the game to version 1.2. However, there might be ways to bypass this through using scripts and/or similar.

Console commands

When the developer mode is enabled (see previous paragraph), you can open the console by pressing [~]. You can then use the following commands:

  • g_godmode 1/0: enables/disables god mode
  • i_giveallitems: gives all weapons
  • r_displayinfo 1/0: show/hide developer mode information (such as DirectX version, memory usage and frames per second)
  • V_goliathmode 1/0: enables/disables indestructible vehicles (NB: this will affect all vehicles, friend or foe)
