Dragon Age Inquisition

In this post, you will find the complete list of cheat codes and console commands for Dragon Age: Inquisition which is the sequel to Dragon Age II. Bioware released The game on November 18, 2014, and remains prevalent despite not receiving the critical acclaim of the first two Dragon Age games.

The story follows a character known as the Inquisitor on a journey to settle the civil unrest in the continent of Thedas and close a mysterious tear in the sky called the “Breach,” unleashing dangerous demons upon the world. Dragon Age: Inquisition’s gameplay is similar to its predecessors, although it consists of several semi-open worlds for players to explore.

Dragon Age: Inquisition can be pretty challenging, especially in more complex modes, and while players cannot use cheat codes, the game offers console commands that can significantly help you overcome any obstacles set by brutal enemy groups. You can use these console commands to enable god mode, get more money, heal your party, kill all enemies, or receive temporary or permanent character buffs.

Firstly, enable the Dragon Age Inquisition developer console

How to Enable Dragon Age Inquisition Console Commands on PC

First, as in most PC games, you must enable the Dragon Age: Inquisition developer console to use console commands. This guide will show you how to enable the developer console if you have installed the game in the default path, but you can easily adjust the instruction if you have used a custom path.

Here are the steps to enable the developer console:

  1. Open the Windows Explorer and go to C:\Program Files (x86)??\Origin Games\Dragon Age Inquisition?\. This is the game’s default installation folder.
  2. When in the folder, search the DragonAgeInquisition.exe, right-click it, and select Properties.
  3. Next, add the?-enabledeveloperconsole string to the end of the Target field.
    • The target should now be: C:\Program Files (x86)??\Origin Games\Dragon Age Inquisition?????\DragonAgeInquisition.exe -enabledeveloperconsole.
  4. Click Ok, and the developer console will be enabled next time you start the game.

Finally, to bring up the developer console, you can use the tilde key (~). On QWERTY keyboards, it’s the key left of “1” in and above “Tab.”

The complete list of DA: Inquisition console commands

Based on the effects of these commands, it’s pretty clear that you can use them to obliterate any enemy in the game. Make sure to use them wisely!

God Mode

The DAI God Mode console command will make your characters invulnerable. It will also provide infinite Stamina and Magicka. This is a handy cheat, especially if you are stuck on higher difficulties.

DAI Cheats for Xbox and PS4 (Glitches & Exploits)

Since you can’t use the console commands on consoles, you can take advantage of some exploits and glitches available on different patched versions of Dragon Age: Inquisition. Most of the cheats have been confirmed to work with Patch 11.

Infinite Gold/Money (War Table “Glitch”)

You must use the War Table for the infinite gold DAI cheat.

  1. Ideally, you want to use Josephine for the gold-gathering mission and Leliana and Cullen for resource-gathering missions.
  2. Next, you must change your PC or console’s Date and time settings. On PC, you should switch to FullScreen Windowed or Windowed Display as it will significantly speed up changing the time and getting back to the game.
  3. Set the clock enough hours forward to complete all existing missions on the War Table, even the longer ones. Then set the clock back before starting a new set of missions.

Using this trick, you can complete War Table missions almost instantly and acquire many gold and resources.

  • Xbox One: Working on Patch 11, only for physical copies of the game
  • Xbox 360: Working on Patch 9

Infinite Influence and Power Cheat

  1. Complete the quest “In your heart shall burn” to reach Skyhold.
  2. Claim a keep, ideally, the one in Crestwood, as it is part of the “Here lies the abyss” questline.
  3. Speak with Varric in Skyhold. He will tell you to meet Hawke in Crestwood.
  4. Once in Crestwood, talk to the mayor to start the “Still Waters” side quest.
  5. Clear the keep from bandits to claim it as your keep for the Inquisition.
  6. Complete the “Price of Power” operation at the War Table.
  7. Leave Skyhold and then return.
  8. Go to Farris and start shopping to buy influence. Without leaving the shop, keep repeating the process of selling back the influence you bought and repurchasing it.

Loot Chest Farming glitch

This exploit takes advantage of a specific game mechanic in Dragon Age: Inquisition. Inquisition will reset any chest that is not fully looted.

  1. When looting a chest, leave precisely one item (of any kind).
  2. Then, travel to another area of the map.
  3. Travel back to the chest’s location, which will have been refilled.

PC, Xbox One, PS4, PS3: Working on Patch 11
Xbox 360: Working on Patch 9

Infinite Skill Points glitch (Loot Chest Farming x Amulet of Power glitch)

This one relies on the Loot Chest Farming glitch, but this time we are looking for a particular chest that contains an Amulet of Power.

In Crestwood, players can loot a specific chest that contains an Amulet of Power that the Inquisitor can use. The Amulet of Power awards the character one extra skill point. There are several Amulets of Power for the Inquisitor and a few other items for companions. However, companion skill point items are obtained from missions at the War Table, so they are not exploitable in the same way.

  1. To take advantage of the infinite skill points glitch, players must reach Skyhold as part of the main quest to start the “Here Lies the Abyss” part. You also want to have unlocked the Deft Hands and Fine Tools perk in the secrets category.
  2. Once in Crestwood, you must complete the “A Missing Warden” and “Still Waters” quests. Next, fast-travel to the Village of Crestwood with a rogue in your party. Face the travel marker, turn right, and go up the stairs to reach a wooden hut. There is a painting on the outer wall, along with a sack.
  3. Use the rogue to unlock the hut’s door. Inside, you will find the chest with the Amulet of Power. Loot only the Amulet of Power from the chest.
  4. Next, fast travel anywhere outside Crestwood. Then, fast-travel back to the Village of Crestwood and repeat the process to collect as many Amulets of Power as you want.
  5. Equipping the Amulet of Power will make it disappear and award you with one skill point. Thus, repeating the process will allow you to get any build you want for the Inquisitor.

PC, Xbox One, PS4, PS3: Working on Patch 11

Infinite gold

Mark a metal or leather item as valuable. Press Sell All in any store, then Sell quickly. If you return to the buy screen, the item will have doubled or increased by 100. Keep repeating this as many times as you wish.?

Easy gold and crafting materials

Remove all your “valuables” by selling, destroying them, etc. Place a crafting item you wish to duplicate in valuables. Go to the sell valuables section of any store. You can sell your valuables and then go back to the buyback tab. You will see that you can buy back double the amount you sold.

Easy money and experience points

After reaching at least Level 13, fast travel to The Hissing Wastes and go to the far west on the map. Kill the enemies in that area, and collect the dropped Wyvern Scales. You can sell them for around 4,000 gold. Leave the area, then return for the enemies to respawn. Keep repeating the process until you have farmed enough scales and experience.?

Easy Climbing

When climbing hills and slopes, the AI for your party members will choose an optimal route. You can switch to a party member that has reached a higher location faster, then switch back to the original character. He will now be at the exact location of the other character. Repeat this process as much as you want to climb faster.

Duplicate Any Weapon, Armor, Accessory, or Upgrade

Here are the steps to duplicate any weapon, armor, accessory, or upgrade:

  1. Head over to the Undercroft in Skyhold.
  2. Access the Party Storage Chest.
  3. From your “Inventory,” put the item you wish to duplicate in the Storage Chest.
  4. Look for the item you wish to duplicate in the “Storage” section and press the buttons corresponding to “Withdraw” and “Back” (in that order) very rapidly.
  5. You should have one of the items you wish to duplicate in the “Storage” section and the other in the “Inventory” section. You can withdraw the item from your inventory’s “Storage” section.
