Submitted by: David K.
From there click on the Properties menu, select “Set Launch Options”, this will then
show another window, here you will need to type the following:
Click on OK. The console is now enabled in-game.
Once you’re in-game, press the “~” key on your keyboard located below the escape key,
after pressing it you will see a window pop up. This will be shown on your PC screen
not the VR headset. Choose “Command” and then type the following command that will
enable the usage of cheats
God – Toggles invincibility
Buddha – Take damage but cheat death
Impulse 101 – Gives all weapons and 20 resin
Impulse 102 – Gives all weapon upgrades
Sv_infinite_ammo 1 – Toggle infinite ammo
Sv_infinite_clips 1 – Toggle infinite ammo in your magazine, so you won’t be required
-=Electrical Connection Puzzle Solution=-
There are multiple electrical puzzles in the game and this is where the Multitool of
Alyx comes in handy. Throughout the game you will find sections where power is off;
either for a device or an area. To solve electrical puzzles in Half-Life Alyx you
simply need to locate the electrical panel, button, or mechanism and require a
connection. Bring your multitool over it and the wires will start glowing. Trac the
glow along the wall so find sections that require rotating and press the trigger on
the tool to solve the puzzles. The idea is to reroute power along the path.
-=Laser Web Align Puzzle Solution=-
Admittedly one of the toughest puzzles in Half-Life Alyx. In the Laser Web Puzzle,
you need to catch glowing white orbs with your multitool and reposition them in a
way that the red lasers shooting out of them will align with the red orbs. Make sure
all red orbs intersect with the red laser to solve the Laser Web Puzzle. If you have
done so successfully, when all the lasers are touching red orbs the path will turn
-=Color Matching Puzzle Solution=-
Matching Puzzle is pretty easy to solve among all of the multitool puzzles in Half-
Life Alyx. Here, you rotate a glowing orb to match different colored shapes. The
process is pretty simple but you might have to turn the orb to connect certain markers.
-=Orb Laser Puzzle Solution=-
In this puzzle, you need to guide a laser through a tube to align with a red orb
on a different axis. You use your hand to grab and rotate the orb until the laser
goes through it, adjust the orientation until the laser goes out the other end in a
way that it’ll intersect with the red orb.
-=Dynamic Maze Puzzle Solution=-
The dynamic maze multitool puzzle in Half-Life Alyx requires you to bring the lock
and key points together by choosing either one using your multitool. Now guide it
through the dynamic maze by activating the multitool over the area you want to control.
Then trace it along the face of the orb. Use the other hand to rotate the orb. You will
come across this type of puzzle a few times in the game. Each time the puzzle gets
harder and requires more precision.
-=Laser Tripmine Puzzle Solution=-
To get over the tripmine you can throw an object at it or shoot it. Another solution
is to disarm the laser tripmine using the multitool in Half-Life Alyx. Get close to
the tripmine and bring the tool over it to trigger the puzzle. You need to guide an
orb through a few hoops to solve the puzzle.
How to Skip Jeff (Cheats):
Written by crayzcrinkle
In case you do not like / wish to play the “Jeff” chapter for any reason.
I literally just cant cope with this section, it makes me instantly mad. I HATE stealth
games and I hate this section it instantly makes me rage out because of how contrived
this BS is and it’s really spoiled the game because I cant get past it. It’s not about
knowing what to do because I’ve looked at walkthroughs but I just cant do it in the game
because of how stressed it makes me. I made this guide for anyone else that just wants
to skip it (or is an aspie like me!)
Warning: Many would consider this cheating, but for me this section is unplayable due
to stress (not fear! fear in games is cool, but this is like Stealth), when I tried
multiple times to play this section it got me so angry i couldn’t concentrate and get
past it. Thats right, it’s irrational, but I have a medical condition which means to
certain stimuli I have a very odd and often destructive reactions, stealth in games is
one of them. Here’s how to skip it.
* Leave the game and then right click the game’s icon in your library and click
* Click “set launch options” and in the little box write “-console -vconsole” (without
speechmarks. Save then run the game again.
* Load up the game to the menu, then goto your computer screen and press the ` key
(next to the 1 key on most keyboards) to bring up the “vconsole” in a separate window.
* In the “COMMAND” box at the bottom of that type “map a4_C17_zoo” without speechmarks
* It will then load you up into the “captivity” section which is the next chapter.
Note that you will start with all weapons you should have unlocked up to that point,
but NO upgrades from resin machines you may have previously had. There is a resin
machine quite nearby however, and you will discover you also start with 116 resin in
If that isn’t enough you can try the below COMMAND that i discovered for more resin
(but be warned… this is very cheaty):
There we are. You might also wanna quit the game and remove those launch options in
case they interfere with the achievements.
