How to Cheat in Sims 4 on PS4 and Xbox One


The Sims 4 has cheats on Xbox One and PS4. See how to activate cheats in The Sims 4 on console below. Unlike the PC version, you will have to give up earning Achievements and Trophies if you activate cheats.

See all cheats for The Sims 4 on the PC Cheats page.

EditHow to Use Cheats on PS4 and Xbox One

To activate them, load into the game and hold down all four triggers at the same time. A thin textbox will appear at the top of the screen. Enter “testingcheats true” in the textbox to enable cheats.

It’s unclear what cheats don’t work at this point (The official Sims 4 FAQ said not all cheats work with the console version), but most do.

To use the cheats that required a shift-click on PC, hit A and B on Xbox One or X and O on PS4 simultaneously to perform that function on console.

While motherlode and rosebud are beloved cheats, an easier way to get your sims the Simoleons they need is by typing “Money X” with X being the amount you want to give your household. You can also use this to subtract funds from your household.

  • Money # – Set your household’s Simoleons to a specific amount
  • motherlode – 50,000 Simoleons
  • kaching/rosebud – 1,000 Simoleons

EditHow to Unlock Sugar Skulls and Other Seasonal Event Items

The Sims 4 official FAQ says that seasonal events with the NPC Jessica Holiday aren’t currently planned for The Sims 4 on console, but items from past events (like Sugar Skulls, Holiday Cracker Plushies, Decorative Eggs, and Magic Beans) are still in the game. You can get them using cheats.

With cheats on, make sure you’re in Live Mode and open the cheat box. Enter “bb.showhiddenobjects” and submit it. Then, enter Build Mode.

In the Objects by Function menu select the Decorations tab. Go to the Misc decorations, scroll through all the new items, and you’ll find Sugar Skulls and the other event collectibles. Buy them, drop them in the world, and have your Sims put the items in their inventory to have them add it to their “Household Collections.”

Activating cheats does disable Achievements and Trophies. But if you’re okay with that, here are a ton of cheats for The Sims 4:

With testingcheats true enabled, you can enter the following codes from the console for the corresponding effects in Build Mode.

  • [ and ] – The left bracket enlarges an item and the right one shrinks it
  • 9 and 0 – You can raise and lower objects using the 9 or 0 keys
  • bb.moveobjects on/off – You can merge objects together and place them wherever you wish
  • bb.showhiddenobjects – Items that normally must be found or dug up are now visible
  • bb.ignoregameplayunlocksentitlement – All build items you would typically have to earn are unlocked
