The Developer Console is a hidden testing feature in Viscera Cleanup Detail.

The Developer Console appears as a black drop-down menu with neon green borders, covering the upper half of the screen. A small text field at the bottom allows players to enter commands, while a larger field can be seen at the top showing previously entered commands.

The Developer Console is extremely similar to that found in most other modern games, and can be accessed by pressing the tilde [~] key, located above [TAB].

Currently, using console commands does not prevent you from unlocking achievements.

NOTE: Commands are disabled in Speedrun and Co-op/Multiplayer modes (excluding the host). In Speedrun mode (singleplayer), the command "EnableCheats" will enable "fly" and "ghost", but not "KillNearestMess" or "KillNearestNonMess".

The following is an alphabetical list of console commands:

(Commands are case-insensitive)

Ghost Allows you to fly and clip through walls. "Walk" disables it.
GiveTools Gives a set of extra debug tools: gloves that spawn objects, and a mop to create decals. Intended to be used in the map editor. Objects created in normal levels will not save on reload; you must copy+paste them into the editor to save any new items/splats/decals.
GiveWeapon [FString] Gives you the defined weapon class (entered after the command), eg: "giveweapon VisceraGameContent.VCWeap_WeldingLaser_Content".
God Makes you invincible. (Example: Guns on Revolutionary Robotics will shoot at, but not kill you.)

J Edit

Command Description
Jump Makes the player jump.

K Edit

Command Description
KillNearestMess Removes/deletes the closest splatter, giblet, body part, bullet hole, scar, and any other object considered to be a mess. Useful as a debug tool when the Sniffer pings something the player can't seem to reach.
KillNearestNonMess Removes/deletes the closest crate, barrel, clean disposal bin or bucket, tools lying around (broom, laser welder), and any other movable object that is not considered a mess by the Sniffer.

N Edit

Command Description
NextViewMode Cycles the world rendering mode through 7 modes:

  1. Normal (what the game starts with)

  3. Solid green overlays
  4. Wireframe
  5. Wireframe with ground, floors, and ceilings removed
  6. Normal with bright, even lighting

Show Bounds Toggles a wireframe overlay of all object boundaries (not the same as collision). Every object and background element is surrounded by a wireframe sphere of respective size. This can be useful for finding smaller objects or hidden messes. Warning: Can lag slow machines.
Show BSP Toggles the display of floors/ground, ceilings, and walls.
Show Collision Toggles the collision boxes around interactive objects.
Show Cover
Show Decals Toggles the display of all decals (blood splatters, footprints, soot, etc). Walking over them still creates footprints, but they will also be invisible.

Show Paths
Show PostProcess Toggles the extra color overlay of the level, such as the blue tint in House of Horror or the color saturation in Santa's Rampage.

Show Terrain Toggles the display of terrain features, such as leaf piles or snow mounds.

StatFPS Toggles the display of your FPS at the top right of the screen.

TestPawnMesh Randomly changes the player's character model/skin (including gender).
ThrowWeapon Tosses away the currently held tool. It must be a tool initially found in the level (shovel, broom, Laser Welder). NOTE: If used while holding the mop, it will instead delete the mop from the toolbar. Use "AllWeapons" to reenable the mop.
ToggleFreeCam Allows you to move the camera around your character (good for screenshots). "Walk" sets the camera back to default.

W Edit

Command Description
Walk Somewhat of a "reset" command: Turns off Ghost and Fly; changes camera from BehindView and ToggleFreeCam modes back to default first person; shows tools after HideWeapon is used.
