Skyrim is back with a brand new coat of shiny high definition "Special Edition" paint, and that includes the same console commands/cheats codes available in the original game.

While Xbox One and PS4 owners will also be returning to Tamriel on masse, PC players get the added bonus of fiddling around not only a swathe of pre-existing mods, but also the huge amount of game-breaking cheat codes.

Whether you fancy elevating the Dragonborn to invincible Godhood, unlock or level up a perk in seconds, or just mess around in NoClip mode, a quick tap of the ~ (tilde) key will bring up the command console and open a gateway to the same cheats found in the original release of Elder Scrolls 5.

Without further ado, here are the most useful commands with the best weapon, armour and artificial ID codes below:

Skyrim: Special Edition - Console Commands

tgm - God Mode (Infinite health, magicka, and stamina. Carry weight nullified).

tim - Immortal Mode (take damage but never die)
