StarCraft II kicking your ass? Here, have the official list of cheats

2 min read

Perhaps you’re new to the whole StarCraft thing. Or perhaps you’re new to the whole RTS thing! Both are unlikely, so perhaps you’re just really, really terrible at strategy games. Don’t feel bad though; you’re probably good at other games… like Farmville or something.

You could use a third-party trainer to make your single-player experience less daunting in Blizzard’s latest RTS epic. That, however, runs the risk of you getting your account suspended or blown to bits by a horde of angry Baneling Moderators. I hear is entirely Baneling-run and monitored so I wouldn’t get on their bad side. Fortunately, Blizzard has taken pity on you, hapless StarCraft commander, and has finally released the official list of cheats for the single-player campaign. There are lots and lots of movie references, including one for District 9!

To activate any of the cheats all you need to do is hit Enter, type in the cheat as it appears on this list, and then hit Enter again. Easy, but be warned that all progress towards achievements will cease one the cheat is activated. In order to get the achievements you’ll have to revert back to a previous game save that was made prior to the cheat being typed in.
