Does StarCraft 2 feature cheat codes? If so do codes vary between Wings of Liberty and Heart of the Swarm? Are there penalties for using cheat codes?

Possible examples:

  • God mode
  • Unlock entire tech tree
  • Infinite resources
  • Infinite pool

I'm not sure if cheat codes vary between WoL and HoTS, but on the StarCraft 2 blog in December 2010 Blizzard admitted to there being cheats in StarCraft 2:

Cheat codes can only be used in single-player mode by pressing the enter key within the game and typing in the codes as shown below within the console.

Caution: Before using cheat codes it’s important to understand that using them will prevent additional achievement gains you might have earned through normal play until either a new campaign is started or a prior save is loaded (one from before the use of the first cheat).

A similar list of Heart of the Swarm cheats can be found on IGN so it does appear that there is some overlap.


Some are exclusive to WoL or HoTS, but in general almost all of them work in both and the only bad thing is that they are not compatible with achievements (i.e. most of them will disable achievements when used).
