Here’s How to Use Admin Commands on PC!

In order to use admin commands on PC, you should get into the admin console area which is incredibly simple, though many of those commands will not work if that’s not your server you’re currently playing on.

To use admin commands on PC, you can hit the ‘Tab’ key to take out the admin console. You can then press the ‘Tab’ key again to pull up a larger version of the console on the top half of the screen.

Before you enter any commands using the admin console, you should enable the future commands first by typing ‘EnableCheats’ in the console, followed by the server’s password and tapping ‘Enter’.

If you play a solo single player local map and have no server password, you just simply type EnableCheats with nothing else after it and press ‘Enter’ to get started.

Well, you should remember that you still need to pull up the console each time you desire to enter a new command after that by tapping ‘Tab’ or using the controller button combo.

Here’s a list of admin commands that you can use on PC:


AdminCheat Fly  is one of the most useful commands once enabling cheats. It will let you move in any direction and stay hovering in the air. You can then easily access hard-to-reach areas, scout the entire map, and also find out where the specific dinos are spawning while Fly is active.


If you want to go back to normal, you just simply type AdminCheatWalk to turn off this mode. Otherwise, you do not type this while you’re far up in the air as your survivor will die.

Spawning Dinos
