The PC edition of Dragon Age 2 has cheat codes that aren't available in the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions. To use these cheat codes, you must first edit a game file to enable the cheat console. 

These cheats are exclusively for Dragon Age 2 on Windows and Mac.

How to Enter Cheats for Dragon Age 2

To use cheat codes in Dragon Age 2:

  1. Create a desktop shortcut for Dragon Age 2.

  2. Add the command line parameter -enabledeveloperconsole to the game shortcut file. Once added, your shortcut target should look something like this:

    "C:\Program Files (x86)\Dragon Age II" -enabledeveloperconsole
  3. Start the game using the modified shortcut.

  4. Press the tilde key (~) while playing to display the cheat console.

    The console may not actually appear on-screen. It will automatically close when you press the tilde key again or press Enter.

  5. Type the desired cheat code and press Enter to activate it.

If it seems like the game is locked up, then the developer console may be active. Press the tilde key (~) to close it and resume playing.

How to Get More Potions

If you already have 10 potions of one type in your inventory, then you're less likely to find that item as a random drop, so put your extra potions in storage so that you can collect more and build up a stash. 

How to Get Unlimited Rival Points

Return to the chantry after completing Sebastian's Repentance companion quest, but don't talk to Sebastian. Instead, talk to the Grand Cleric and choose the You're useless dialog option to earn +5 rivalry for Sebastian. Keep talking to the Grand Cleric and telling him he's useless to keep getting more rival points.
