Half-Life Cheat Codes

Note:  The God mode and Noclip cheats do not work in the demo version of Half-Life (Uplink). All cheats do work in the Uplink lite version of the demo (which requires the retail version installed). Note that cheating in the single-player game may mess up some of the scripted sequences and make it so you don't see everything you would if you weren't cheating. I suggest trying the Walkthrough first if you you're having trouble making it through the single-player game.

Basic Cheats
Load the game with the "-console" command-line option ("hl.exe -dev -console" -- see the detailed instructions on the Console Help page if you don't know how to do this). Start a new game, and then open the console (either hit ESCAPE to return to the main menu and select "console", or press ~ -- the tilde key), and type "sv_cheats 1". Then you must restart or reload your game and use the following cheats. For some reason, for some people, the /give cheat will not work until after you've reached a new "chapter" in the story (when the white text, i.e. "Unforeseen Consequences" appears on screen then fades away). Use "/impulse 101" instead if you can't wait. Another solution that seems to fix the /give problem, is to /give yourself the crowbar and the HEV suit FIRST, then try /giving yourself whatever weapons or ammo you need.

Type any of these into the console after doing the above:

/GOD - god mode. 
/NOCLIP - walk through walls/fly. 
/MAP xxxx - go to map xxxx. Map names are of the format c#a#, (c1a1, c2a1, etc). Will screw up 1p game script sequences. 
/IMPULSE 101 - give all weapons and ammo, so say DaGimp. David says you need to enter this command at least four times to get the bigger weapons fully loaded. Some people swear you need the slash (/), some say you don't. This seems to work for most people, but a few have problems. I have no idea why this may or may not work for you (it does for me), so please don't email me and ask.
/GIVE xxxx - give item xxxx. This seems to work for most people, but a few have problems. I have no idea why this may or may not work for you (it does for me), so please don't email me and ask. The following items are available: 
 

item_airtank ammo_357 weapon_357
item_antidote ammo_9mmAR weapon_9mmAR
item_battery ammo_9mmbox weapon_9mmhandgun
item_healthkit ammo_9mmclip weapon_crossbow

Advanced Cheats
The cheats explained above should be enough to get you out of any tough spots that the Walkthrough can't help with. If you want to try some really interesting new cheat codes for playing around with the characters and enemies in Half-Life, see the Advanced Cheats Page
