Many games representing a variety of genres offer the players access to a command console, which enables the user to facilitate or modify gameplay in various ways. One genre in which this is particularly popular is strategy games. Such options, however, unfortunately are not available in Total War: Warhammer 3.
Fortunately, one of the title's fans has decided to fix this problem. On the web you can find a modification that introduces the aforementioned console into the game. Here you will learn where to find it and what capabilities it offers.
What is the Console Commands mod?
The modification, called Console Commands, is an easy-to-use mod that will enable you to use commands in Total War: Warhammer 3.
After installing it, it will work like analogous tools in other games. All you have to do is open the console with the new menu button and enter the appropriate command into the displayed field.
In this way you will be able to add yourself a certain amount of resources or modify the composition of your armies at will. Of course, these are only the simplest examples, because the list of commands that are available within the mod is truly extensive.
In addition, it is worth mentioning that Console Commands is regularly updated. On August 24 the creator of the mod adapted it to the latest version of the game, including the Immortal Empires mode.
Console Commands - how to install the mod?
Installation of mods for Total War: Warhammer 3 is extremely simple and can be described in a few steps.
- Open up Steam and go to the game tab.
- Next, open the "Workshop" tab and search for the modification you are interested in (in this case, Console Commands, which can be found here).
- Open the mod's page and click on the "Subscribe" button.
- The modification will automatically download and install. The next time you launch the game, you should be able to use it.

- bbf building_key - builds this building in the selected horde.
