How To Fix Sons Of The Forest Console Commands Not Working

Firstly, ensure that your keyboard settings are set to English (US) in Windows. Console commands may not work if your keyboard settings are different.

To activate the console, type “cheatstick” while in-game. By default, the console opens with F1, but you can customize it in the settings. Make sure you’re using the correct key.

Not all modes allow console commands. Ensure you’re in a suitable game mode like Creative.

If commands simply refuse to execute, you might be in a locked game mode or missing admin privileges. Double-check your game mode settings and ensure you have admin rights if necessary.

Typos happen to the best of us. Carefully check your commands for any spelling errors, missing spaces, or incorrect capitalization.

Some commands are case-sensitive, meaning “spawnitem” is different from “SpawnItem”. Consult the official documentation for specific command requirements.

Ensure that your game is up to date with the latest patches and updates. Developers often release fixes for issues like this, so installing any available updates may resolve the problem.

Verify Game Files

If the issue persists, you can try verifying the game files through Steam. Right-click on Sons of the Forest in your Steam library, select Properties, go to the Local Files tab, and click on Verify Integrity of Game Files.
