How to Cheat in Crysis by Editing Config Files

To edit the Crysis configuration files:

  1. Locate the game configuration files in the Config folder. The folder will likely be under C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\Crytek\Crysis\Game\Config.

    If you can't find the correct folder, use a file search tool.

  2. Identify the .cfg file that corresponds to the difficulty level you're playing. There are four choices:

    • diff_easy.cfg
    • diff_normal.cfg
    • diff_hard.cfg
    • diff_bauer.cfg
  3. Back up the .cfg file you plan to edit. To save a backup in the same folder as the config file, make a copy of the file and give the copy a different name, such as BACKUP_diff_easy.cfg.

  4. Open the original .cfg file in a text editor, for example, Notepad.

  5. Add one or more of the cheat codes below to the end of the file. For example, to activate god mode, add the following line to the file:

    g_godMode = 1

    Enter each cheat code on a new line.

  6. Save the .cfg file.

  7. Start the game on the desired difficulty level to begin playing with cheats enabled.

    To disable cheats, quit the game and delete the codes from the bottom of the .cfg file, then save the file.
