Starcraft 2 cheats and codes for PC and Mac

Starcraft 2 introduces a new set of cheat codes. These codes are different from those available in Starcraft 1 and Brood Wars, which will no longer work.

Just like in the original game, the codes can only be used in the single player modes (campaign, skirmish, challenge). These codes will not work in a multiplayer game. Achievements automatically become disabled when cheats are used in a game. You will need to restart / start a new game or load a previously saved game with cheats disabled in order to earn achievements again.

To activate a cheat code, press the ENTER key to bring up the chat bar. Type in the code, then press ENTER again to activate. When a code has been entered correctly you will see the following message:

CHEAT Local Player Achievements have been disabled due to cheat usage. To enable achievements again, start a new game or load a saved game.
CHEAT Local Player

enabled

It should be similar to the screenshot below:

Below is a table containing a list of all known Starcraft 2 cheats, along with their Starcraft 1 and Brood Wars counterpart:

Starcraft 2 Starcraft 1 Description

eyeofsauron n/a View cutscenes while outside a mission (i.e. inside the bar or hyperion)

Perhaps the most useful yet still undiscovered cheat code is the one that will reveal the map. The equivalent in Starcraft 1 would be “black sheep wall”. If anyone knows how to do it or has knowledge of a code not yet listed here, please comment below.
