Quick Overview

The activate_relic command in Stellaris is used to instantly enable or trigger the special effect or benefit associated with a specific relic within the game.

You can use this command by replacing [relic id] with the ID of the relic you want to activate.

This command could potentially give you an immediate advantage in-game depending on the relic you activate.

In-Depth Description

The activate_relic is a console command in Stellaris which is used to activate the triumph effect of a specified relic.

You simply need to replace [relic id] with the ID of the relic that you want to use.

In Stellaris, relics are powerful artifacts and trophies that you can discover throughout the game. They can be collected through various means such as archaeology, events, conquest, and more.

Once obtained, they provide a passive effect to your empire and can also give a major temporary bonus, or 'triumph effect', that can enhance your capabilities.

However, these effects can only be used a few times, after which the relic needs a given amount of time before it can be used again.

The activate_relic command allows you to use this triumph effect whenever you want without any cool-down period.

This way, you can gain a significant temporary boost in power, economy, research, and more, depending on which relic you use.

How to Open the Command Console

In Stellaris, cheats are executed from the command console, a text box that you type commands into.

To open the command console press the ~(tilde) key, which is typically located under ESC (escape).

If your keyboard does not have that key, or pressing ~ does not work, try the following keys:

  • ~
  • SHIFT + 2
  • SHIFT + 3
  • ALT + 2 + 1

Type your command into the console, and then press ENTER .
