Quick Overview

The menace command in Stellaris adds a specified amount of Menace to your game.

Menace is a resource that is associated with the Nemesis DLC.

It is primarily used to progress through the Crisis stages.

By default, this command adds 5000 Menace, but you can specify a different amount if you wish.

In-Depth Description

The "menace" command in Stellaris is a console command that increases the player's menace level.

Menace represents a measure of how threatening your empire is seen by other empires in the galaxy. Increasing your menace level can affect interactions with other empires.

This could lead to more challenging diplomacy with other empires, as they may feel threatened by your growing power and potential aggression.

To use the command, you would enter it into the console as follows: menace [amount].

For example, menace 800 would increase your menace level by 8000. If you do not include a specific amount, the command defaults to adding 5000 to your menace.

This command can be helpful in various situations. If you're trying to roleplay an aggressively expansionistic or threatening empire, increasing your menace can make your interactions with other empires more fitting to your narrative.

On the other hand, if you're trying to challenge yourself with more complicated diplomacy and potential conflict, increasing your menace level raises the stakes.

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 .
