The Sims 4 Death Cheats Guide


Cheating Death means a whole different thing in The Sims 4!

One of the most beloved characters in The Sims 4 is the Grim Reaper. So it is no surprise how often his services are needed! But sometimes you need the job done quicker. That’s where Sims 4 Death Cheats come in handy. They’re perfect for setting up a save or causing mayhem in a current save.

Some of these cheats are able to be used on console. Most importantly, those that aren’t are marked with a warning that they require a mod to use.

To enter the cheat, open your cheat box and type in: death.toggle false to turn off death and death.toggle true to turn it on.
