Carry Weight Cheat

No need to wait to carry more weight!

Carry weight is a crucial metric in Skyrim that dictates how much weight your character can carry. A larger carry weight means your character can carry more items. Thankfully, there are ways to increase your carry weight with cheats (console commands).

This guide assumes you know how to open and use the console (press the ` or ~ key to open). For help using and opening the console, see this page.

In Skyrim, the weight your character can carry is decided by the CarryWeight actor value. So whilst there's no "CarryWeight Command" per se, you can increase/decrease your carry weight by modifying the CarryWeight actor value with the set actor value command.

To set you character's carry weight to 500, you'd use the following command:

player.setav CarryWeight 500

If you wanted to set carry weight to 1,500, you would change "500" to "1500", like so:

player.setav CarryWeight 1500

Alternatively, you can make the game temporarily ignore all carry weight limitations for your character by running the following command:


The above command will also make your character invincible and stats like stamina, magicka, etc will not drain. You can toggle this mode off by running the command again. Learn more about god mode here.

That's all there is to increase and decreasing carry weight in Skyrim. You can find more console commands on our cheat list.
