Sims 4 Cheat Codes For Every Platform (Money, Skills, Friendships, & Items)

In The Sims 4, players on all platforms can use cheat codes to instantly give their Sims a better life by getting them new items, and improving their money, skills, and friendships. Cheat codes are a big part of The Sims franchise, allowing players to get their Sims living the high life without bothering with ordinary day-to-day tasks.

Unlike in other games, using cheat codes in The Sims 4 is not only easy but also encouraged, with EA even publishing a list of their personal favorites. Even though players can get The Sims 4 for free, EA hasn’t yet given players all of the information they need. To use cheat codes, players need to open the Cheats Console.

Players should be aware that using some cheats will disable achievements and trophies.

How To Input Cheat Codes In The Sims 4 On All Platforms

On PC, players can open the Cheats Console by pressing Ctrl + Shift + C. Players can enter all of the codes listed below into the Cheats Console to use them in their games. It’s worth noting that players on PC should take care when using cheat codes if they’re using any custom content for The Sims 4, as mods and custom content don’t always play well with some base game features.

On console platforms, players need to press all of the bumper and trigger buttons on their controllers at the same time. For Xbox players, this involves pressing LB, RB, LT, and RT, while PlayStation players need to press L1, R1, L2, and R2.

At this point, some basic cheats can be used straight away, but to really get the most out of cheat codes in The Sims 4, players should also enter “testingcheats true” into the console. This enables many of the more complex cheats listed below.

Here are all of the cheats players can use in The Sims 4, courtesy of Ultimate Sims Guides.

The Sims 4 Sims Socializing In Hot Tub And BBQ Credit: EA

Creativity is a big part of The Sims 4, and players can use cheats to ensure that it isn’t being restricted when creating Sims or using Build Mode.

The Sims franchise has a long history of cheat codes and luckily for players, The Sims 4 hasn’t changed that in the slightest. Even several years on from release, each expansion and content pack released for The Sims 4 has added a few of its own cheat codes, making the game stand out from many modern releases where players are forced to play by the rules.

Whether it’s using cheat codes to transform Sims into master songwriters in the blink of an eye or to give them heaps of Simoleons, The Sims 4 makes it clear to players that it’s okay to bend the rules.
