Every true gamer has at knows that to maximize the amount of fun you have in a game, you have to mess with the console commands. Subnautica is no different. Luckily for us, there is a plethora of commands that can be done to make the game more enjoyable. While our personal favorites are madloot and the different teleportation cheats, we are going to teach you how to do all of them.
How to Enable the Console
Before you start messing with the commands, you have to first have to enable the console. It is a simple process, that only takes a short 5 steps.
- Open the sub-menu by pressing F3
- Free the mouse by pressing F8
- Find the Disable Console option, make sure that it is unchecked
- Press F8 and F3 once more to get yourself back into the game.
- Using the “~” key, open the console. This may vary based on your keyboard
You will be able to keep the Disable console setting off for the lifetime of your game, but every time you restart, you need to re-enable that setting.
The teleportation glitches will send you to any where of your choosing. You can be sent to a specific biome, point of interest, coordinates, forward, to a vehicle, or to just respawn.
