Starcraft 2 Cheats

starcraft 2 cheats

It’s no secret that I’m basically a Starcraft 2 addict, whether it’s multiplayer or singleplayer doesn’t even matter I just love playing the game. Of course it’s also fun to get a little extra help in the form of some cheat codes, so here is the complete list for SC2. These cheat codes work for either PC or Mac versions of Starcraft 2.

Starcraft 2 Cheat Codes

You activate the cheat codes within Starcraft 2 by hitting the Enter or Return key and then typing the cheat and hitting return/enter again to enable it. You will get a notification saying the cheat is active and letting you know that achievements are disabled (see note below).

  • God Mode – terribleterribledamage
  • Create Units at No Cost – moredotsmoredots
  • 5 Billion Credits – whysoserious
  • 5000 Vespene Gas – realmendrilldeep
  • Unlimited Energy – jaynestown
  • Upgrade Weapons, Armor, and Shields – iamironman
  • Disable Ability Cooldown – hansshotfirst
  • Disable Tech Requirements – sosayweall
  • Disable Victory Conditions – tyushasleftthegame
  • Play “Terran up the Night” Song – overengineeredcodpiece
  • Cinematics Menu – eyesofsauron

Remember that cheats only work in Single Player, either in Custom Games, Tutorial, Campaign, or any other Single Player mode.

Starcraft 2 Cheats Disable Achievements

This is very important to note; if you use cheat codes in Starcraft 2 you will lose your ability to earn achievements while the cheat is activated for that game. This is the message you will see:

“CHEAT PlayerName Achievements have been disabled due to cheat usage. To enable achievements again, start a new game or load a saved game.”

You then need to either start a new game or load a previously saved game to get achievement unlocking back again.

The cinematics cheat can cause Starcraft 2 clients to randomly crash which is likely part of the wider bugs but the framerate cap listed on the Starcraft 2 bugs and fixes page seems to help.

  3. Shasha P says:

    Im new on Starcraft II and still trying to figure out how to use cheats. On the old starcraft multiplayer game, you have the option to compete with the computer. I don’t know yet if you can compete with the computer on Starcraft II. If we do, I hope we could use cheats. I don’t know why they will disable achievements on campaigns you’re not even competing with anybody.. its just a game.. :(

  7. Thanks for the bunch of cheats. great post bro.

  8. CN says:

    I get the message right when I click “Continue Campaign”. Right then, on the mission selection screen, it says my achievements are disabled due to cheats. Like, WHAT?!

    I have tried playing games over and over. I have tried loading ANY game. Nothing works.

    Blizz still has lots of bugs in SC2, that’s a fact. Hopefully they’ll fix it.

    I have written to them about this problem, but they have not given me any answer yet.

      if you use a cheat on the campaign you will have to start campaign again before you can use cheats

    @JME @hello
    SAME PROBLEM here with “Achievements have been disabled” after the SCII update today, whenever loading ANY savegame from prior to the update, and then playing again until back on battlenet.

    I have *NEVER* saved a game after using a cheat code.

    Beware of cheat codes… it’s not worth it. It can corrupt your entire account!!

  10. Cenote says:

    Thanks a million for the fog of war cheat code, I HATE FOG OF WAR AHHHHHHHH

  11. hello says:

    @ jme

    yeah i’m having that same problem. does anyone know if you have to have a save game PRIOR to using the cheat? in which case that means that you’d have to start an ENTIRELY NEW campaign? or does it just mean that you have to save a game and then load that game at any point. even if a cheat is active?

  12. JME says:

    So it says to start a new game or load one in order to reactivate achievements, but I can’t find a way to do that. I just get sent to Mission Archives, where loading my old games doesn’t reactivate achievements and replaying old missions doesn’t seem to count as “starting a new game”. How do I do that?
