The main thing that players will want to figure out when they are trying to speedrun their journey is knowing how to access consoles in the first place. Essentially, cheat codes can be used by using the game’s command console. Players will be able to click on the ~ button on their keyboard if they want to access the command console. 

Now, newer players might end up making themselves fall into a bigger issue than needed since they might find that the command will not work and you will not be able to access the command console. The main reason for that will simply be that you haven’t activated debug mode in the game.
