How to Enable Sims 4 Cheats

To use The Sims 4 cheat codes, you must first activate the cheats in the game itself. Be warned, though: enabling cheats means that achievements or trophies are disabled in this particular backup.

On PC, bring up the cheat menu by pressing Ctrl + Shift + C. Once there, enter testingCheats true and cheats will be enabled in that particular save.

On Xbox One, Xbox Series X, or Xbox Series S, you can access the cheat menu by pressing and holding LT + RT + LB + RB for a few seconds. This will bring up the cheat menu, where you need to type testingCheats true to enable cheats in this save.

On PS4 and PS5, you need to press and hold L1 + L2 + R1 + R2 to call up the cheat menu. When it appears, type testingCheats true and cheaters will then be activated in this world.

How to Use The Sims 4 Cheat Codes

Enabling cheats is one thing, but using The Sims 4 cheats is another thing altogether. The main way you’re actually going use cheat codes is by doing this:

  1. Open the game and load a world
  2. Bring up the cheat menu (by pressing Ctrl+Shift+C on PC, or holding down all shoulder buttons on console)
  3. Enter testingCheats true and tap Done, if you haven’t already
  4. Type the relevant cheat code into the small text box in the upper left corner of the screen
  5. Tap Done and the cheat will take effect

The only exceptions to this system are the Interaction Cheats, which are activated in a slightly different way. You must always be in a world with testingCheats true enabled, but then you need to follow the steps below (depending on your platform of choice).

To use The Sims 4 Interaction Cheats on PS4 or PS5, with testingCheats true already enabled, hover over a Sim or object, hold Circle, then press X to bring up the Interaction Cheats menu.

On Xbox One, Xbox Series X, or Xbox Series S, once you have testingCheats true turned on, press and hold B, then press A to call up the Interaction menu.

Or on PC, after activation testingCheats true, hold the Shift key, then click on the Sim/item in question – this will bring up the Interaction Cheats menu, and you can choose from a variety of cheats that it will list for you. All other cheats in the game can simply be typed into the cheat console as we discussed earlier. For the full list of what you can do, read on!
