Mass Effect

Mass Effect is a sci-fi roleplaying game set in a diverse universe where humans must find their place amid the various alien races. It is an attractive game with an engaging plot, enjoyable action and high production values. Mass Effect was developed by Bioware, and the involved storyline and characters draw on a wealth of popular sci-fi material which is skillfully woven with the squad based shooter action. The game was a big success on the Xbox 360 and the PC version offered a number of improvements including a redesigned HUD. The PC version also allows cheats, so if you are looking for some help in your quest then read on.

Console Cheats

In order to activate the cheats you’ll need to edit one of the game files. Most developers nowadays disable the console before releasing the game but you can usually get around this. With Mass Effect you want to find a file called BIOInput.ini and it should be in Bioware/Mass Effect/Config. Right click on the file and open with notepad and then scroll down until you find the line that says

Engine.Console

Immediately underneath that line you want to add in the line

ConsoleKey=Tilde

Now load the game up and the console can be activated by pressing the tilde key (~). Once you have the console up you can enter the following cheat codes.

  • fly – enables fly mode but the controls are awkward
  • walk – turns fly mode off again
  • ghost – turns on no clipping mode so you won’t collide with anything
  • giveall – gives you all game gear including weapons but not armor
