Admin commands are essentially cheats that you can use to change up the game how you want. You can customize your experience through entering these commands and playing around with what they give you in the game’s giant sandbox.

You can use these commands in single player or in multiplayer, on a private server. A person just has to have the right permissions to enter commands and this can be done through either the server settings or by using an admin password that you set.

Activating admin permissions

To bring up the admin command bar, simply press the Tab key on PC, L1 + R1 + Square + Triangle on PlayStation 4, or LB + RB + X + Y on Xbox One. You will then need to activate cheats which is done by entering:


Just replace “password” with whatever password is set for the admin password on the server.

This will then allow you to start entering cheats and commands for the game. Here are those commands that you can enter and what they’ll do:
