Console Commands are a group of tools that adjust the player's Subnautica experience outside the normal scope of the game. These commands can be used for debugging purposes, viewing partially implemented content, or simply for player enjoyment.
How to useThe console is an optional feature and is disabled by default. To activate it you need to press and you'll see a checkbox ticked in the top left saying: "Disable Console". Press to get a mouse cursor and uncheck the box to activate the console.
Once the console is enabled, press, , or , depending on the keyboard, and type one of the commands below. Whenever you restart the game, you need to press one of the overlay keys first (e.g. ) before pressing the console key.
