XCOM: Chimera Squad is now out in the wild and if you’re finding it too much of a challenge, you can use these console commands to cheat your way to victory.

Strictly speaking, console commands aren’t true cheats, but they sure do make fights a hell of a lot easier. If you’re looking to cheese your way through XCOM: Chimera Squad without even attempting to use any strategy skills, you’ll want to use these console commands to boost your resources and gain a bunch of scopes, stocks and other items.

The console commands can be used regardless of whether you’re playing on Steam or not, so let’s take a look at how to enter them. You can also check out what Kirk thought of XCOM: Chimera Squad here.

XCOM: Chimera Squad – How to use Console Commands

To get started, you’ll need to add a command-line parameter to XCOM: Chimera Squad. You can do so by right-clicking on the shortcut on your desktop you’d use to launch XCOM: Chimera Squad then select Properties. Copy and paste the -allowconsole command at the end of the Target field. If done correctly, the line will now look like this:

C:\Games\XCOM: Chimera\Binaries\Win64\XCom.exe” -allowconsole

If you’re playing XCOM: Chimera Squad on Steam, all you need to do is go to your Library, right-click on it and select Set Launch Options. Paste -allowconsole in and it should now look like this:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\XCOM-Chimera-Squad\Binaries\Win64\xcom.exe” -allowconsole

You should now be able to use the console commands in-game.
