The Sims 4: Buydebug Cheat Now Available


The Sims 4 gives players added the ability to unlock all the available hidden objects in the game. For those familiar with The Sims 3, these objects are called Buydebug Objects.

To enable this mode, open the cheat panel, use testingcheats true and type in the following command: bb.showhiddenobjects. Once you have activated this cheat enter “unknown” in the search bar to bring up the objects. Objects exist in build & buy mode.

If you’ve been trying to find items using the buydebug cheat using “DEBUG” in the text box and have come up short, SimGuruNick has confirmed that this was changed with the last game patch. Instead of searching for “DEBUG” in the text box, use “Unknown” to bring up the list of items.

This cheat is not to be confused with Career Rewards cheat which unlocks reward objects for careers. To unlock those objects, use bb.ignoregameplayunlocksentitlement.

❗ NOTE: SimGuruNick confirmed that “unknown” has been localized in all languages, so if you play in a language other than English, use your country’s word for “unknown”. 

❗ DEBUG may still work in some games due to a bug. Try repairing the game to see if that corrects the issue. If not, then be happy you don’t have to change words. 😛
