Unlimited Health Cheat

Become immortal!

Perhaps one of the most important things in Skyrim is making sure you're full, or near-full, health levels. Waiting for health to regenerate naturally takes ages, and using spells and potions can be costly. An alternative to waiting or using magic to regenerate is console commands. Using console commands you can either give your character unlimited health (so you don't even need to bother about restoring it), or restore your health (to save you the bother of waiting). This guide shows you how to do both. To jump to a specific part, click one of the links below:

Unlimited Health Command

There are two ways to get unlimited health with console commands. The first way is to set your character's health value to a big number, you can do that with the following command:

player.setav health 99999

After using the above command your character's health level will be so high that it will regenerate faster than it could be reduced (well, in most cases).

The second way to get unlimited health is to put you character in "Immortal Mode". In immortal mode, you can take damage but your character will not die. You can enter immortal mode using the following command:


Immortal mode has the benefit of being easily toggled off (just run the command again).

Restore Health Command

If you aren't looking to become an immortal being, you can instead use the following command to fully restore your character's health:


Contrary to its name, this command won't actually reset your health, it'll just push it back up to the maximum level it can be.
