The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion is the fourth installment in the popular The Elder Scrolls video game series. It's an open-world action role-playing game that first came out in 2006 on Windows PC and Xbox 360. A PlayStation 3 version followed in 2007. It's possible to instantly complete quests in the PC version using cheat codes. This trick might be necessary if you encounter a glitch that prevents you from finishing a quest. We'll show you how to do it.

These cheats are only available for The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion on PC. The Xbox 360 and PS3 versions don't support cheat codes.

How to Enter The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion Quest Completion Cheats

Follow these instructions at any point while playing The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion to enter cheat codes:

  1. Press the tilde key (~) to open the cheat console.

  2. Type ShowQuestTargets in the cheat console and press Enter to see a list of active quest IDs. Note the ID of the quest you want to complete.

  3. Enter completequest [questID] in the cheat console. This moves the quest into your completed list, but it won't complete the quest for you.

  4. Enter SetStage [questID] 100 in the cheat console to officially complete the quest.

You can use this method for any quest. The code format is: SetStage [questid] stage where stage 100 indicates successful completion. If you just want to complete a specific stage, enter the number of the stage instead.
