The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt PC Cheats


                 




General Tips
  • Rolling away from enemies takes stamina, so use the dodge button more often.
  • If you're low on health, meditate for at least an hour.
  • The fast attack ability is a good one to upgrade early in the game, as it's the attack you use most often.
  • You should always hold the parry button to deflect incoming attacks. If you time it correctly, you can trigger a counter attack.
  • Remember to use alchemy to your advantage. Craft potions and oils and use them in battle.
  • In tougher fights, activate the Quen sign so you can take a free hit. Keep doing that throughout the fight to avoid significant damage.
  • Purchase a saddlebag to increase your inventory space.
  • Some of the question marks on the map will include places of power, which provide Geralt with extra ability points. Just keep an eye out for nearby monsters.
  • Repair your weapons and armor regularly. When they get below 50%, they become less effective.
  • When you equip mutagens, try to match the color with the abilities on that side of the skill tree to gain an extra bonus.
  • This is a large open-world RPG, so save often.

Unlimited Money (Exploit)



This exploit allows you to earn around 1000 crowns per minute. Take the following steps:

  • Find the merchant at Hierarch Square in Novigrad and purchase all of his Shells and Sea Shells. Talk to him again after you have depleted his stock and you will find that he has more to sell. Keep buying as many as you can afford and carry.
  • Take the shells with you and visit the armorer, who is located next to the merchant. Dismantle your Shells to receive Pearls.
  • Sell the Pearls to the armorer until he runs out of money.
  • Meditate for 5 days. The armorer should have 1000 coins again. Sell him more Pearls.
  • Repeat the process as often as you like.
  • You can dismantle a Shell at the cost of 8 coins for each effort. The Pearl you receive can then be sold for 109 coins. Naturally, this only works during the daytime hours, as merchants aren't around at night.



Easter Egg: Familiar Tattoo



If you import your save from The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings, you may find that Geralt has a tattoo. In The Witcher 2, he receives that tattoo during the course of completing the "Hung Over" mission. When he wakes up the next morning with a tattoo, the player can either remove it or leave it where it was. If you import a save file after leaving the tattoo in place, look for the tattoo as Geralt is soaking in his bath near the start of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.



Pulp Fiction Conversation

As you complete the "Family Matters" quest, you'll need to enter the Bloody Baron's Castle. Use the central staircase to descend to the basement and you'll meet two guards who are having a conversation. If you listen closely, you'll find that they are reenacting the "Bring out the gimp" scene from Quentin Tarantino's famous film, "Pulp Fiction."
