Mount and Blade 2: Bannerlord Cheats — How to Activate Them

Mount and Blade 2 cheats are easy to activate but few in number. Here's how to access the in-game codes and get more.

Though Warband players had easy access to cheat commands, Bannerlord cheats are only available in a very limited respect. The Mount and Blade 2 cheats list just isn't all that big. However, you can get more by using a mod.

Below, we go over how to access the in-game dev console to activate the cheats available in Bannerlord itself. We then look at a mod that lets you access even more cheats — lots more. 

Mount and Blade 2 Cheats — How to Activate Them

Activate the Developer Console

This first method allows you to activate a few basic cheats without too much work. All you need to do to activate the cheats is:

  • Go to "Documents\Mount and Blade II Bannerlord\Configs" folder
  • Find and open “engine_config.txt” file
  • Search for “cheat_mode = 0” line
  • Change it to “cheat_mode = 1
  • Save and close the file

This will activate the following cheats:

  • Ctrl+H: Restores full health.
  • Ctrl+Shift+H: Restores full health of your horse.
  • Ctrl+F4: Renders enemy unconscious.
  • Ctrl+Shift+F4: Renders all enemies unconscious.
  • Ctrl+F2: Knocks out one of your own soldiers.
  • Ctrl+F3: Knocks out the player.
  • Ctrl+Shift+F3: Renders your horse unconscious.

Note: These cheats will only work in the new campaign.

Get the Developer Console Cheats Mod

If the cheats above don't satisfy your needs, then download and install the following mod:

The mod page has a complete list of all the cheats available after installing this mod  and it's huge! It includes (but is not limited to): 

  • Player trait options
  • Settlement options
  • Workshop options
  • Tournament options
  • Conversation options

You can also tweak a plethora of system settings, such as screenshot format, lens flares, textures, physics, sounds, and much more.
