Half-Life Cheats

By Chris 'autolycus' Bokitch

Cheating provides the mapper with some useful tools to test and debug levels. To enable cheats, you must run the Half-Life executable with the -dev parameter.

If you're at all confused about how to use the parameters or enable the Half-Life console, refer to the following link:

Once in Half-Life, you will be in developers mode. There are 3 settings for Developers mode:

  • 0 - off
  • 1 - on (normal, default)
  • 2 - on (verbose)

You can change developer mode value by typing developer n in the console, where n is 0 - 2. When in mode 2, a message will be displayed for each even that gets activated - this is quite handy when you are setting up complex sequences of events.

The following cheats can be used (by typing them at the console):

  • god - invulnerability
  • notarget - monsters do not attack you
  • noclip - allows you to move in all directions, even through walls

As well, the following impulse commands are available to you. Type impulse n at the console, where n is equal to one of the following impulse values:

  • 101 - gives you the HEV suit, weapons, and ammo
  • 102 - spawns gibs and blood
  • 103 - (while looking at monster) gives you stats of monster
  • 104 - list global entities
  • 105 - makes player silent
  • 106 - (while looking at model/sprite) gives model/sprite info
  • 107 - (while looking at a textured object) gives texture name
  • 195, 196, 197, 199 - ai node information
  • 203 - deletes a monster or NPC from the world
