Hammerwatch II – Cheat Codes (Console Commands)

Tired of searching through all the lists of cheats? Then this is the right for you! This is a simple, straightforward and easy to read guide to cheats for the Hammerwatch 2 game. Have fun!

How to Enable Console

The commands below are available by opening the console using the tilde (~) key. This key is usually located below the escape key. These commands don’t save to your configuration file so they will not stick once you close the game.

To save a command to your HW2.exe.cfg file you can either add the command manually by editing the file or type save your command & argument or save_curr your command.

Example:

save ui_scale 0.75
save_curr ui_scale

About Volodymyr Azimoff 984 Articles
I turned my love for games from a hobby into a job back in 2005, since then working on various gaming / entertainment websites. But in 2016 I finally created my first website about video games – Gameplay Tips. And exactly 4 years later, Game Cheat Codes was created – my second website dedicated to legal game cheats. My experience with games started back in 1994 with the Metal Mutant game on ZX Spectrum computer. And since then, I’ve been playing on anything from consoles, to mobile devices.
