In Fallout 4 (PC), is there a way to switch to play as Nora, mid game, after you've already been playing as Nate?

Will this break anything?

    You take the risk of breaking things when you install mods.

  • @MattR yes I'm aware. Keyword being "risk".

You can do this using console:

Press the console button (usually its the "~") and type: "sexchange" to change your gender. You can change your look either again via console (I believe it is "showlooksmenu player 1") or visit a doctor in Diamond City.

I've tried this in the past (although relatively early in the game), there were no consequences.

    the Gender specific perks like black widow or aqua lad don't transfer when you change sex. Something to keep in mind. Oct 22, 2022 at 16:47
