Cheat Codes

Cheat mode (client)

The following codes will work on the single player retail version of the game, and only on a saved game. They do not work in the demo or multi-player games. Edit your Windows 9x/ME Desktop Shortcut for the game and change the "Target" field to:

"C:\Program Files\Return to Castle Wolfenstein\WolfSP.exe" set sv_cheats 1

If using Windows XP, right click on the single play shortcut. On the "Command Line", make sure the command line is in quotes and add set sv_cheats after a space, so it resembles:

"drive:\path\folder\WolfSP.exe" set sv_cheats 1

Alternately, open an MS-DOS prompt, use the cd command to change to the game directory and start the game with the wolfsp set sv_cheats 1 command line.

Edit the path as necessary if you installed the game to another location. Start the game. Press ~ during game play to display the console window. Enter one of the following codes to activate the corresponding cheat function.

Note: The codes only work when you load a saved game. They do not work when you start a new game. In order to do this, start a new game, then save it. Display the console and type /killserver. Then, go to the load menu and load the game that was just saved. The cheats will now be enabled.

Forest level: First tower guard

Ignore him and the two guards at the bridge. You cannot kill them without setting off the alarm.

Forest level: Getting past the concrete tunnel

As soon as you enter the tunnel, you will hear a guard ask if this is the only shipment. Do a full sprint towards the guard and the truck that is leaving. Duck into the doorway on the right side and quietly open the door. If you do not do this at a full sprint, a second guard near the truck will see you as the truck pulls off and set off the alarm.

The guards at the bridge and the tower can be taken out. You have to kill the tower guard first, then spy on the guards on the bridge until both of them are looking away from you. Then, run up and backstab each of them.

The Last Mission Set: Stopping Heinrich's resurrection

There is no time limit to finishing this set of missions. You cannot stop the ceremony, so take your time.

Defeating: Heinrich I

He is harder to contend with, given those zombie warriors surrounding him firing life-sucking demons at you. Use the Tesla gun to hit several of the monsters at once, including Heinrich, while circling him. However, this will not be enough to kill him. Once it runs out, use the Venom gun to finish him off.

Wait when you get into the room that you can look out into the battlefield. When he walks towards you and enters the room, you can run out very quickly and the room will close off on him. Heinrich will scream very loud before exploding, completing the game.

When you reach the doorway that leads out into the courtyard, do not exit. Wait for the attackers to come to you. Make certain that all of them enter the room with you. Hiding around the corner by the door that you came in through works well. You will have to dash from corner to corner to avoid being hit or killed. Do not kill any of them or Heinrich will just create more. Once they are all in the room with you, run out through the doorway that leads to the courtyard. The doorway will collapse behind you, trapping them inside. At this point, go straight for Heinrich. He should be slightly off to your right. As soon as he comes in view, start hitting him with your Panzerfaust. It is imperative that you stay close to him, but no so close as he can get at you. If you get too far away from him, he will summon ghouls, If you get too close, he decapitates you. The key is to fire at him continually with everything you have and stay as close to him as possible. If he gets close to you, he will yell and jump, which will propel you towards him. Do not try to run away. Instead, as soon as you see him jump, run towards him. By doing this, you will actually be propelled by him instead of landing in front of him. Once you get a safe distance from him, start firing again. Also, if you can lure him under the crane holding the large barrel you can shoot at the barrel. It will fall on him. Make sure you are far away when it lands.

Defeating Lopers

These monsters easily outrun you, but do have a major weak point--and it is not their heads. Aim your gun at their telsa-like apparatus. If you score some direct hits they will explode into bloody chunks.

The Loper can be defeated by simply spraying a shot of flame on it. Once it catches fire, it will burn to death. Note: This was done in Bring It On mode.

Defeating Possessed Hegla

As soon as you emerge from the basement with the ammo stash, the Boss battle will begin. Quickly rush to the gate on the other side of the cathedral's courtyard and plant some dynamite. Take out the other zombies around and go back for the hole. Hegla for some reason will not go in the hole after you. Thus, you can rush over and lob grenades potshot style under where she goes down.

Defeating Proto-Super Soldiers

Beware of the rockets they fires and the venom gun they carry. The best way to kill them is to catch them around corners with planted dynamite, toss grenades, or use rockets. Be sure to get out of the way after taking the shot.

Defeating Super Soldier (first meeting)

The Tesla weapon will take you out quickly if you do not get out of its line of fire. Jump the railing to the right and get behind the window. He cannot seem to see you at that location. Blast it with whatever rockets you have left, then try luring him behind the window so you can move around the rest of the room to get the armor and med kits, as well as kill the enemies on the catwalk. You will have to take potshots at the Super Soldier until it starts limping for a better chance at hitting him with grenades and machine guns.

When fighting the Super Soldier with the Telsa Gun, while he is in the computer room under Deathshead, run up the stairs to the catwalk. Stop directly next to the door where Deathshead is talking in that room and get the Super Soldier's attention. When he walks under you, fill his head full of bullets. A few bullets should kill him. This is much easier then continually shooting him in the armor.

The normal Super Soldiers can be shot at without them shooting back. Their gun is on their right arm. If you hide slightly behind a wall to the left, they cannot hit you as much with their gun. Using a Venom Gun against them is recommended.

Defeating undead

The undead can be defeated by simply spraying a shot of flame on it. Once it catches fire, it will burn to death. This does not work for the undead and has to be totally destroyed by shooting the body until it explodes. Note: This was done in Bring It On mode.

Unlimited grenades in multi-player mode

Note: Both the server and client must be running on v1.0 for this trick. It will not work if newer patches have been installed. As a lieutenant in multi-player mode, select your grenade. Hold B + E (Binoculars + Tilt Right) and press Fire. You can throw as many grenades as desired. Hold B + E the entire time that you throw grenades.

Unlimited gas for flame thrower

Enable the /give all code or get the flame thrower normally. Then, lean around a corner so that the enemy cannot see you. Shoot your flame thrower. This should negate the lean command. Shoot puffs of fire around the corner briefly so that you can lean again. The puffs of smoke will not waste your ammunition, but will still set your enemy on fire.

Kill players faster in multi-player mode

Its more effective to shoot your opponents in the head rather than the chest or any other area. If you get head shots, you will kill players faster.

Better accuracy in multi-player mode

For better accuracy on longer shots, simply crouch and shoot.

Secret room in multi-player Depot level

For the Axis, go all the way to the anti-aircraft gun and take a left, going through the door and to the stairs. Once you get to the first stop, you will see crates in a stopped elevator. Jump on the boxes until you get through the elevator. Once there, climb the ladder to the top. You are now in a secret room overlooking your base. Guard that location so that the Allies cannot use it for a sniping position.

Tram Ride: Ride on the tram's roof

It is possible, but dangerous, to ride on the roof of the tram. By doing this, you can take cover and reach the trap door faster at the mid-station. However, it is easy to fall off and die. At each tram stop is the switch which you can press. Stand on top of this switch, then look straight down at it (at your feet). The hand icon should appear, allowing you to activate the switch. You can now quickly jump on the back part of the roof, by waiting for the tram to move forward slightly. As soon as you get to each checkpoint, start firing. You will be hit less because the soldiers will not expect you to be on the roof. Note: You can also take a chair and place it on the roof of the tram.

Hogan's Heroes reference

The second time you have to go through the castle, watch out for a Nazi officer with a moncle hiding in a small room. He looks remarkably like Commandant Klink, and on his desk is a note to a General Berkhalter. In addition, later on in the same level, if you sneak around and listen to the Nazi soldiers talking, one of them makes a reference to Berkhalter, calling him exceptionally fat. General Berkhalter in the television series was very plump.


Glitched intermission sequences

During an intermission sequence, enable the \camera 1 code to gain control of the player. Type it again when the game gets camera control back. Enable the \give all code if you do not have any weapons, then select a weapon using its bounded key. Enable the /noclip code if you are not in the correct location. Glitching the OSA intermissions with explosives can be very funny. You can even kill Himmler when he is not invincible during the intermission sequence after the defeat of the last Boss. You can find intermissions by loading the auto saves.

Dam level airplane

In the Dam level, the opening sequence shows the airplane and someone looking like Agent Blastowitz ready to parachute out. Enable the /noclip code and go behind the dam wall (not the side where you can fall and die). Once there, look throughout the sky. You may notice an airplane. Float in and disable the /noclip code. The soldier will attempt to attack you, but does not have a gun. When you kill him, he stands frozen. There are also guns on the plane that are usable, but there is not anything to shoot.

Stupid guard

On mission 1 (where you attack the guard and escape from the cell), in the courtyard, go to the room where there are two guards warming their hands. Note: If you have triggered the alarm this will not work. Sneak up behind the one who is holding an MP40 and backstab him. The other guard should not notice. If you get too close he will begin to turn around. If this happens, it will not work. It will also not work if it takes more than one stab to kill him. Note: This was done under the "Don't Hurt Me" difficulty setting.

See through truck

On Norway, the snowy map, there is a base that has trucks inside. Go to the one that does not have a machine gun on it. Jump in the bed of it then go forwards and crouch down. If you are as far as you can go, you should be able to see though it.
