How to Add Money (Bottlecaps) with Commands

Money doesn't grow on trees - it comes from commands!

In Fallout 4, bottlecaps are used as as a global currency. They can be added in using the AddItem command - this guide will show you how.

In order to use commands, you'll need to know how to open and use the console. You can open the console by pressing one of the following hotkeys: ~ (tilde) or ` (grave). After typing a command into the console, hit ENTER to run it. For more help, see our console guide.

The syntax for the AddItem command is as follows:

player.additem [item code] [amount]

Here's what you need to do to make this command give your character money (bottle caps):

  • Replace [item code] with the item code of bottle caps, which is 0000000f.
  • Replace [amount] with the amount of bottle caps you wish to give yourself (e.g. 50)

The below command would add 40 bottle caps to your character:

player.additem 0000000f 40

If you wanted to add more, say, 1000 bottle caps, this console command would do that:

player.additem 0000000f 1000

That's all there is to adding money (bottle caps) to your character in Fallout 4. You can find more item codes to use with the AddItem command on our item code list.
