Useful ‘Baldur’s Gate 3’ cheats for PC:

There are several third-party websites and programs available that have cheats specifically for Baldur’s Gate 3. The most notable of the bunch are Nexus Mods and Cheat Engine.

As for Cheat Engine, the program gives you direct control over how you want to modify the game but is rather complex to use. In fact, newcomers to the program will need to read or watch tutorials and then download a cheat table that works for BG3 to begin modding their experience.

If you go this route, you can activate commands that could kill all enemies in combat, remove cooldowns, reduce character AP to zero, and more at your leisure. Basically, you can play virtual god and breeze through Baldur's Gate 3.

Obviously, these cheats won’t work on the PS5 port coming on Sept. 6 due to Nexus Mods and Cheat Engine being PC-only. Unfortunately, PlayStation fans will likely miss out, but that could change depending on modders.

Baldur’s Gate 3 is now available on PC and will release on PS5 on Sept. 6.
