Starfield – Custom Hotkeys

A brief overview for how to set up the game to use custom hotkeys, and a few useful custom hotkey macros that I use.


Using custom hotkeys leverages the games console commands, without needing to actually open the command console. For this reason, it will disable achievements. If you care about achievements either use one of the many achievement enabling mods that are available, or do not do this.


The first thing you need to do in order to use custom hotkeys in Starfield is enable them in the StarfieldCustom.ini file.

In order to do this, the following lines must be in that file:


Add them to the file if they are not already present. If you have no StarfieldCustom.ini file, create a new text file in the folder: “Documents\My Games\Starfield” folder and name it StarfieldCustom.ini then add the above lines to the empty file.

Setting Up StarfieldConsole.ini

Once you have the StarfieldCustom.ini file set up to allow custom hotkeys, the next step is to actually set up the macros and hotkeys in a file called StarfieldConsole.ini. You should create this as a text file in the same directory as StarfieldCustom.ini and then name it as indicated.

The following is the contents of this file that I use:

HelmToggle=if player.getav b120b > 0; player.setav b120b 0; elseif player.getav b120b < 1; player.setav b120b 1; endif

I love two things in life, games and sports. Although sports were my earliest interest, it was video games that got me completely addicted (in a good way). My first game was Crash Bandicoot (PS1) from the legendary studio Naughty Dog back in 1996. I turned my passion for gaming into a job back in 2019 when I transformed my geek blog (Re-actor) into the gaming website it is today.
