UT2004 Console Commands

To bring up the UT2004 console, press the ~ (tilde) key. To close the console press the ~ key again. You can type a range of commands in the console to perform tweaks, change settings or look at information. I have included a full list of console commands below, with a brief description of what each does. Note that many of these commands can be changed using the in-game settings screens and also in the .ini files.

Adrenalin Combos and Special Moves

There are a range of special moves which can be performed by your character under certain circumstances. Some require that you have 100 Adrenalin. Others, like the Dodging moves require that you have the Dodge setting ticked (See In-game Settings section). You can get Adrenalin points through various methods:

Picking up a red and white adrenalin pill: 3 points

A Kill: 2 points

Headshots: 5 points

The first kill during a round (First Blood): 12 points

Killing sprees: 12 points

Adrenalin Combos:

Once your Adrenalin reaches 100 points, you will be allowed to perform one of the following special moves, the effects of which will only last for a while. The following key combinations need to be pressed in rapid succession to activate the Adrenalin effect:

Speed: Forward, Forward, Forward, Forward

Regeneration: Back, Back, Back, Back

Invisibility: Right, Right, Left, Left

Berserk: Forward, Forward, Back, Back

Special Moves:

These can be performed at any time, but require a fair bit of practice and skill to master. Remember, you need to activate the Dodge setting to use the dodge moves.

Double Jump: Jump and then press jump again in the arc of the jump

Dodge: Tap Left, Right, Forward or Back twice quickly

Dodge Jump: Perform a Dodge, and jump just before you lose your air

Wall Dodge: Run alongside a wall, jump and quickly Dodge away from it

Goo Jump: Shoot some goo from the Biorifle, get a shield up using the Shield Gun, jump just when goo explodes (You can also use the shield gun to bounce energy weapons, break your fall and of course block normal weapons.)

Lift Jump: Jump while on a lift to get an extra boost

Death from Above: If you jump from a great height and land on someone you'll cause them damage.

We're fast approaching the conclusion to this guide. The next section covers a few more neat things about UT2004, and wraps the whole show up.
