What Are the Best Forest Cheats and Console Commands?

To activate cheats and console commands in The Forest, you’ll need to type “developermodeon” in the main title screen. This activates the developer console, and you can press Z to toggle the console and F1 to switch it on or off. I have to point out that the list below contains commands that can mess with your game save so always use console commands with caution.

Lastly, ensure that cheats are enabled in the Settings menu and that your “F Lock” is off since it can prevent console commands from being enabled. With that out of the way, let’s dive into the full list of console commands and cheats.

Below, you’ll find cheats that don’t require the console, and then I’ll dive into the top 30 console command cheats:

  • ironforest: Makes buildings indestructible. Type the code again to disable it.
  • regrowmode: 10% of all fallen trees will regrow while you sleep.
  • veganmode: Enemies will appear only in caves.
  • vegetarianmode: Enemies will only appear at night.
  • woodpaste: Resets all the holes made by the hole cutter and crane.
  • rawmeatmode: Implements perma-death. To disable it, type the code again.
  • meatmode: Disables all cheats.

I also tested these on PlayStation 4, and they work if you have a keyboard plugged in.
