Strife cheat codes


To use a cheat code in most versions of Strife, one simply types the code while playing (this also applies while in automap mode). After the last letter has been entered, a message of acknowledgement will appear at the top of the screen. The status bar and ingame view may also change, depending on the effects of the code. All of the codes for the original game work in all source ports, unless otherwise noted. The demo version has different cheat codes than the commercial release, and not all cheats exist in both versions.

In Strife: Veteran Edition, enabling any cheats will disable the ability to earn achievements for the rest of the game unless the player reverts to an earlier save file.
