Below you’ll find an updated list of all Hearts of Iron 4 commands. These commands are also known as cheat codes, and they will allow you to gain more xp, add equipment, teleport, etc.

The cool thing about HOI4 is that unlike most games, you can use codes to make your general and troops stronger. In other words, this game allows you to use cheats, which is a rare thing in the current gaming landscape.

There are over 150 HOI4 cheat codes available for the latest version of the game. To enter these commands, you will need to open the game’s console window. You can do this by simply pressing “~” on your keyboard. You can find the “~” key under the Esc key on most PC keyboards. But if you can’t find it on your computer, try opening the console window by pressing “Shift +2” or “Shift + 3” at the same time.

After opening the console window, type one of the codes below, and then press “Enter” on your keyboard to activate the cheat you wish to use.

Although there are more than 170 commands available for Hearts of Iron 4, we’re going to only focus on the ones that are known to work. Well, every console command works, but they’re not all equally important.

So without further ado, here are 42 HOI4 cheats that are guaranteed to help you dominate the game.
