Oxygen Not Included is one of those PC games that lets you put in cheats. Cheat codes will help you unlock different modes and even reveal all events. Our Oxygen Not Included Cheats Guide will help you with all the best cheats to unlock God mode, Discover all Elements, and much more.

Players can make the game take all commands by creating (empty) text-file through the “OxygenNotIncluded_Data” folder. You can locate this folder inside the root game folder.

All Oxygen Not Included Cheats

The first thing we will talk about in our cheats guide is how to use Oxygen Not Included cheats. Create an empty text file on your PC and name it “debug_enable.txt.”

The “.txt” file is an extension so the file name you’re looking for is “debug_enable.” Now you will be able to use Debug-commands but keep in mind that you need to restart the game afterward. The method is useful for screen-shot and turns off the HUD with ALT +F1.

Steam users can find this folder by right-clicking the installation folder and clicking on “Local Files” and “Browse Local Files.”

Windows and Linux users should move the “debug_enable.txt” file inside “OxygenNot Included_Data” folder/directory.

Mac users, on the other hand, opening package bundle via a right-click and selecting “Open Package Contents.” Put the “debug_enable.txt” file in the “Contents” folder.
