The Best Half Life 2 Cheats To Punch Into More Entertainment

It’s almost unfair for a game released to day to endure in popularity and entertainment as little as 5 years from now. But nearly 15 years since hl2 was released in November 2004, its craze lives among its fan, despite the technology, the rendering, and the gaming trends changed, for the better if most are to be believed. If you’re a fan of it, you’re in for a treat, because we have the ultimate collection on half life 2 cheats for you to try punching into the game to get even more entertainment from it.


Where to put in the cheat codes?

The Best Half Life 2 Cheats

Most games allow you to enter your cheat codes anywhere you like. But not Half-Life 2. The game has a text field you enter your code into, which you can bring to your screen by pressing the tilde key (the squiggly that looks like ~, the key right next to the number one key above Q).


Enabling Cheat Codes in Half-Life 2 Console Edit Guide

The game by default doesn’t acknowledge cheats you punch in. To enable them, you need to make a Half Life 2 Console commands to the file to make it run with cheats accessible. Here’s how to do it.

  1. Begin by clicking the start menu
  2. Find the game’s link in the proper place, and right click it.
  3. Go to properties and launch the menu.
  4. A text field marked “Target” should be visible. It will have the location of the game’s .exe file. This is the file you need to edit.
  5. To the contents of the text field, add -console and save it. No need to make changes anywhere else. For example, if your source read “C://Program Files/Games/Half-Life 2/hl2.exe”, it should now read “C://Program Files/Games/Half-Life 2/hl2.exe”-console
  6. Launch the game. Press the tilde (~) key to see if the cheat code field is enabled.

That’s it! That’s all you need to do, and your cheat codes will be enabled.

Virtually all half life 2 cheats can be real boosts to your character and help you win the game or at least score better. There are a few that are much loved by fans, and some others we really enjoy using ourselves. HL 2 has God Mode that basically makes you impervious to whatever the game throws your way. Then there are half life weapons like the Super Gravity Gun or the frag grenade. I even love the non-target cheat code which basically makes me invisible to enemies and I can cruise through a tough battle in no time. It’s really great to use when you want to play casually.
