A survival game quite unlike any other, V Rising blends ARPG combat with resource management to create a truly unique experience that’s perfect for anyone who likes all things dark and spooky.

Below we’ve listed the best console commands in V Rising to help you expand your empire at speed:

  1. Give – This allows you to spawn a chosen amount of any item in the game, negating the need for resource management.
  2. Giveset – This allows you to spawn any armor set in the game, again allowing you to bypass grinding for high-tier gear.
  3. Changedurability – This means you won’t have to worry about repairing weapons.
    • Any broken weapons must be in your inventory if you want to fix them, though, so bear that in mind!
  4. Banuser / Bancharacter – If any pesky bloodsucker becomes a thorn in your side, you can ban them easily using these two commands.
  5. GatherAllAllies – Teleports you and all of your allies to your cursor location to save you trekking through the piercing sunlight.
