Hearts of Iron 4: cheats and console commands

Like any Paradox grand strategy game, Heart of Iron IV can be a little tricky to understand even for the most enthusiastic WWII gamers. And while trial and error and reading a lot of guides will definitely help if the walkthrough didn’t go exactly the way you wanted, console commands and cheats can give you more freedom of action.

They’re also handy if you just want to experiment with different scenarios. What would happen if, in the midst of D-Day, a civil war suddenly broke out or someone started nuclear bombing every province without warning? Perhaps the answer to the second question is more obvious than the first, but the idea is clear – this is a great way to get out of a predicament or just have fun.
