1. find xcom 2 in your steam library
2. right click, and go down to properties
3. click "set launch options"
4. type in: -allowconsole
5- click ok

The console can be opened with different keys depending on what keyboard layout you have, such as this key: ~

OTHER USEFUL LAUNCH OPTIONS:

When you have the console enabled there's a bunch of things you can do,

Here is the codes most people are probably looking for:

TakeNoDamage - your squad is immune to damage, also known as godmode


PowerUp - take no damage, no need to reload, unlimited movement - even better godmode!


LevelUpBarracks - get 1 rank up on ALL soldiers in the barracks

...and here is a list with certain items you can add:

The main story progress can be happening faster then you want, to help you lower the "heat" level and focus on other things, use these codes in the console:

There's a lot more that just haven't been discovered yet. Please let me know if you find more codes that can be added. Also, make sure to check steam workshop for mods. Some mods make the guns better, armor, classes, skills, etc.
HELP THE GAME RUN BETTER
Xcom 2 is not great optimized. Follow these steps to increase framrate:

Disable: anti aliasing
Disable: Depth of field
Disable: action camera

I'm running this game with a high-end graphics card and I still got lots of FPS-drops. When I turned these options off my framerate went from 30 to between 60-90 fps most of the time!

***PLEASE FAVORITE AND RATE THIS GUIDE! I WILL UPDATE IT WHEN I FIND NEW CODES! IF YOU KNOW SOMETHING NOT LISTED HER, LET ME KNOW***

Nebula is confused and trying to go through Windows explorer.

STEAM GAME LIBRARY, IN STEAM.

To turn on the CONSOLE - go to your STEAM library and right click on XCOM2 and select properties. There is an option for adding command line parameters. Click on add command line parameter (start options). Type "-allowconsole" without quotes. During game press the tilde key to open or close the console. Remember RIGHT CLICK ON LIBRARY LISTING OF GAME to get access choice for properties (and other options). Happy Gaming.

I think it only removes progress that is added DURING the current game. As in, if your progress bar is at 5, and one day you come to the computer and boot XCOM back up, and the game adds 1 more progress bar during that sitting, then you can use doomtoremove to remove that 1. But if you quit, and reload the game, then you won't be able to remove the 1 because it's not apart of your current sitting.

what are other console keys?

@tyrannosaurus rex, If you use the 'takenodamage' and then use the 'powerup' the cheats will cancel out what they share in common(the godmode), either use powerup OR takenodamage. OR disable the active cheat first(re-type the cheat), before activating another one.

I don't know what you're doing wrong ty, takenodamage gives complete invincibility .

However, if anyone knows a cheat that just gives individual soldiers invincibility that'd be great. I'm fine with my normal clones dying, I'm sick of reloading when Rex takes a shot to the face.
