Stardew Valley cheats: all glitches, codes, and secrets

You might not think a cozy game like Stardew Valley would even need cheats. After all, the entire point of the game is to relax, build up your farm, and make friends with the other townsfolk, right? Sure, but there are also a lot of challenging and time-consuming objectives that have been added over the many years of support. Plus, sometimes people just want to play a game on their own terms. In either case, cheats can help you farm up some fun times, so let’s harvest every one there is to enjoy.

All Stardew Valley cheats

We’re going to use the term cheat a bit loosely here since Stardew Valley doesn’t have cheats in the traditional sense, but more exploits and glitches you can use to cause some cheat-like things to happen.

Infinite energy glitch

Every action you take in Stardew Valley costs some energy, so wouldn’t it be nice not to have to worry about running out? There’s a simple way to do it by exploiting that small step forward your character takes whenever they swing a weapon or tool. If you go into the Spa and swing your weapon against the wall until you clip through it, you can then go out of bounds over to the pool. Once there, put any post down in the water and touch it. After that, you can return back to the bounds of the game. However, the game will be tricked into thinking your character is swimming, and thus, you won’t spend energy using weapons!

The Galaxy Sword glitch

If you did it the long way, you could get the Galaxy Sword by taking a Prismatic Shard and holding it between three pillars in the Calico Desert, but who has time for that? Instead, if you purchase the catalog from Pierre’s General Store and buy the green wallpaper. Take this into the desert, and if you stand in just the right spot, it will inexplicably function like a Prismatic Shard and spawn the Galaxy Sword for you.

The Junimo Plush

This is purely a secret item, but one most players will never find without help. Secret Note #13 holds the clue to it, but all you really need to do is go to the bush on the northwest corner of Pelican Town on the 28th day of any season. If you right-click on it precisely at noon, you will get the rare plush.

Infinite fishing time glitch

Fishing is one of the hardest skills to level up to max in Stardew Valley only because of how long it takes. You will need to spend days trekking out to an appropriate spot, casting your line, waiting for bites, and then making it home in time for bed. What if there was a way to stop time while you fish to let you grind levels without wasting days on end? All you need is an active quest in your journal to perform this simple exploit. When you reach a fishing spot, open your journal as you cast your line into the water. We already know that time stops when you have your journal open, but for whatever reason, fish will still come and bite your line and let you catch them.

Stay up past 2 a.m. glitch

The importance of a full night of sleep can’t be overstated, but sometimes, there are things that just have to be done before you lay down for the night. Once 2 a.m. hits, your character will pass out from exhaustion no matter where you are or what you’re doing and need to be carried home by a helping hand. Aside from being annoyed to be forced to stop whatever you were doing, you are also charged 10% of your gold, capping out at 1,000. To save time and money, you can glitch your way to stay up late enough to wrap up whatever you’re doing and get back home on your own terms. All you need to do is wait for your character to yawn, indicating they’re about to pass out and open your journal right away. This will delay the trigger and give you some more time, but your character will keep yawning every once in a while so you need to keep on your toes to open your journal to stay awake until you make it back to bed.

Infinite Item spawning glitch

Last but not least, we have the most useful and powerful glitch of all: the infinite item spawning glitch. By naming your character with specific codes tied to different items in the game’s code you can cause them to appear in your inventory whenever your name is displayed in-game. Just name yourself any combination of three item codes within brackets to get them to spawn as often as you want by talking to characters who say your name. The most effective way to use this glitch is to pick the most valuable items on the list and simply sell them for infinite money. Here is a list of every item in the game and its respective code you should use as your name to spawn it:

Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga cheats and codes
Promotional art of Lego Star Wars The Skywalker Saga.

Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is an absolute blast. The simple, yet challenging, gameplay makes for a fun solo adventure or a multiplayer romp if you tackle it co-op with a friend. And what makes an arcade multiplayer experience even more fun? Cheat codes!

Cheat codes are becoming less and less popular options in modern gaming, but Lego titles are keeping the fun alive with secret codes instead of locking content behind cosmetic stores or paid DLCs. Cheat codes are notoriously cryptic and nearly impossible to guess, so here's a full list of all the cheats in Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga and what they unlock.

All Starfield cheats and console commands
An astronaut stands on the moon in Starfield.

After a couple dozen hours with a game like Starfield, or even just a few if you're that kind of player, the allure of cheats will start to arise. Whether it's because you're short of Credits, want to make yourself invincible, or get a head start when starting a new character, cheats can help you squeeze more fun out of any game that allows them. Starfield is already built for mod support, but you don't have to go through the trouble of installing any if you just want to mess with the basics of the game by entering in some console commands. These commands will disable you from earning any achievements in the game, and you do so at your own risk since you could potentially break the game depending on how you use them, but otherwise are as simple to use as knowing the proper codes. Here are all the cheats and console commands in Starfield, and how to use them.
Can you enter console commands on Xbox?
Since Starfield is available on both PC and Xbox consoles, you may wonder if you have the option to use the same commands on your console version of the game. Unfortunately, at the time of writing, there is no way to open the console command menu on Xbox to enter any of these cheats. Perhaps a mod will be released in the future that enables this, but for now, all your cheating will have to be done on PC.
How to enter console commands on PC
Entering console commands in Starfield is done the same way as you would in any other game, which is by hitting the` key to open up the menu. Note that as soon as you do this, the game will warn you that entering any console command will lock you out of earning achievements as we mentioned earlier.

Once this menu is open, all you need to do is input a valid command to activate that function.
All console commands
There are dozens of console commands to pick from, so we will break them down into categories as best we can to help you locate what you're looking for easily.

Grand Theft Auto 3 cheat codes: all weapons, money, cars, and more
grand theft auto 3 cheat codes

The Grand Theft Auto series is one of the most influential in all of gaming. The game design, specifically starting with Grand Theft Auto 3, sent ripples not only through how other games were made but even pop culture at large. Even though this was technically the third game in the series, it was such a massive departure that it almost stands as the true beginning for what this open-world crime series would become. Now, thanks to the Grand Theft Auto 3 -- Definitive Edition being released stand-alone or as part of a package, we can relive those early days with a fresh coat of paint and more modern controls.

While the plot and story missions are plenty fun even in this early game, we all know most of the fun in a GTA title comes from messing around in the open world. The level of chaos and interactions you can create is a little limited now, but still worth hours of fun. Anyone who played this game back in the day will tell you, though, that it was the cheats that turned a fun game into a never-ending riot of excitement. Not all the old cheats have come back, unfortunately, so if your memory is a little hazy, there's no need to worry. Here's a full list of all the cheats in Grand Theft Auto 3 -- Definitive Edition and how to activate them on each system.
