Mass Effect 2 is based on Unreal Engine 3 and many settings can be modified in a way similar to Mass Effect, allowing the user to mod, tweak or cheat. Unlike the first Mass Effect, Mass Effect 2's in-game console is locked in a more serious way, but a multitude of effects and in-game commands can be activated through editing configuration files.
Backup Your Career
Using the modifications described in this article may alter your career permanently. It is recommended to backup your career for the option to revert back later on. The career files are found in the folders given below:
- On Windows XP:
X:\Documents and Settings\%Username%\My Documents\BioWare\Mass Effect 2\Save
- On Windows Vista/7:
X:\Users\%Username%]\Documents\BioWare\Mass Effect 2\Save
Replace X with the drive letter where your Windows system is installed on (usually C:), and replace %Username% with the username that you are logging into the system with.
The career folders are named in the format
John_31_Soldier_060310 (first name, psych profile/history, class, date of creation). The ME1 folder contains the Mass Effect save files transferred over by Mass Effect 2 Configuration Utility.
Backup Your Profile
There is also a profile file normally called
Player1.prf under the same folder in
%Username%\Mass Effect 2\BIOGame\Profile that you may want to backup. This file stores your achievements and bonus power unlocks.

Mass Effect 2 console can be enabled by using two different methods:
- Automatically patch main game configuratuion file (SFXGame.pcc) to remove the lock of game-based console (console settings can be customized through Coalesced.ini). The program for patching can be found here.
- Manually patch MassEffect2.exe to enable engine-based console (console use default settings which can't be customized). This method requires HEX editor and recommended for advanced users only. Instructions are here.

Coalesced.ini file is one of the main configuration files, designed for easy adjusting of the game parameters stored in .PCC files. That's why it's the most popular method of tweaking, modding, or cheating Mass Effect 2. This file can be found under the folder where you installed the game.
X:\Program Files\Mass Effect 2\BioGame\Config\PC\Cooked\Coalesced.ini
When you have located the file, there are two important points to take note of before you do actually do anything with it. Also, you may want to reconsider whether you are willing to edit configuration files you are not really supposed to touch.
- Make a backup before you even move your cursor over it.
- You cannot edit it with Notepad, or the game will crash on load.
When you have this down – and understand the potential unwanted effects on your career/profile – you can start experimenting. If you want to edit the file manually, you will need a text editor that can handle UNIX-format files (e.g., Notepad++) and a way of "rebuilding" Coalesced.ini after your edits; the method is described here. If you made your changes and can't compile the file try using this one, works great even if you previously edited Coalesced.ini in Notepad. A far easier approach is using a specific application such as the Mass Effect 2 Coalesced Editor for making changes. Another rebuilder created by Corvin666 also exists and is simply known as the ME2Fixer.
Changing m_bSkipPowerCooldown from FALSE to TRUE causes non class specific powers to instantly recharge for both the player and the AI (you will likely die before being able to take cover if you become exposed to an enemy with tech or biotic powers when using this).
|StormRegen||regeneration speed of combat storm stamina|
|StormRegenNonCombat||regeneration speed of non-combat storm stamina|

This section is where binds can be added to the game (or removed. Be careful when doing this.) There are several subsections which describe key bindings during various "modes" in the game.
|[SFXGame.SFXGameModeBase]||All SFXGameModes inherit from this class. Bindings placed here would be usable in all modes, including engine-driven cinematics (making this the ideal place for screenshot and fast-forward bindings).|
|[SFXGame.SFXGameModeDefault]||This is the "Default" game mode, where you control Shepard and can move them around.|
|[SFXGame.SFXGameModeCommand]||This mode is activated when in "command mode," where the game is paused, allowing you to give orders to your squad|
|[SFXGame.SFXGameModeConversation]||This is the game mode used when in conversations.|
|[SFXGame.SFXGameModeCinematic]||This mode is used when in-game, non-interactive cinematics are displayed. (While the shuttle lands on a planet, for instance.)|
|[SFXGame.SFXGameModeGalaxy]||This mode is used while the Galaxy Map is open|
|[SFXGame.SFXGameModeGUI]||This mode is used for hacking and decryption mini-games, as well as menus.|
|[SFXGame.SFXGameModeMovie]||This mode is used when pre-rendered movies are being played|
|[SFXGame.SFXGameModeOrbital]||This mode is used when scanning planets. Aside from bindings, several values which govern the speed of the scanning reticle are found here.|
|[SFXGame.SFXGameModeVehicle]||This game mode is used when the player is in the Hammerhead.|
To add a new bind to any of the above sections, use the format
Bindings=( Name= "Key name", Command="Command", Ctrl="True", Shift="True", Alt="True")
Ctrl, Shift, Alt commands are optional, if they are not specified default value is "False". The most common use for this is to bind a command to the press of single or combination of keys.
Example: adding this to the [SFXGame.SFXGameModeDefault] section will allow the player to take screenshots while on foot by pressing F8:
Bindings=( Name= "F8", Command="Shot" )
In the subsections dealing with weapon properties, there is a "base template" section in [SFXGame.SFXWeapon] that defines general weapon properties, which are then overridden by specific weapon settings in the other categories if necessary.
|SFXGameContent_Inventory.SFXWeapon_GethPulseRifle||Geth Pulse Rifle|
|SFXGameContent_Inventory.SFXHeavyWeapon_GrenadeLauncher||M-100 Grenade Launcher|

Ability to take only certain weapon types
Now you'll be able to pick only certain weapon types like in Mass Effect 3.
Change Player Shield Recharge time
You can modify shield recharge time to increase/decrease combat pace to suit your play style:
The time shield needed to fully regenerate (in seconds).
The time before shield start regenerating (in seconds).
Change the values to 0.0 will cause shield unable to regenerate.
Carrying upgrades to New Game+
You can grab upgrades plot variables above.
Editing Shepard Template Face Codes
You can add or remove custom Shepard pregenerated codes in the game:
Note: If you have Kasumi DLC installed removing standard face codes will not work, because of rewriting section by DLC .ini file. In this case you have to modify DLC .ini directly.
There are two ways of unlocking weapons:
1. By setting weapon boolean parameters to true:
Bindings=( Name="NumPadOne", Command="SetIntByName Wpn_GethPulseRifle 1" )
To unlock all normal weapons, add:
Bindings=( Name="NumPadOne", Command="SetIntByName Wpn_AssaultRifle2 1 | SetIntByName Wpn_AutoPistol2 1 | SetIntByName Wpn_Locust 1 | SetIntByName Wpn_GethPulseRifle 1 | SetIntByName Wpn_HeavyPistol2 1 | SetIntByName Wpn_Shotgun2 1 | SetIntByName Wpn_SniperRifle2 1" )
To unlock all heavy weapons, add:
Bindings=( Name="NumPadTwo", Command="SetIntByName Wpn_CryoBlaster 1 | SetIntByName Wpn_GrenadeLauncher 1 | SetIntByName Wpn_NukeLauncher 1 | SetIntByName Wpn_ParticleBeam 1 | SetIntByName Wpn_Flamethrower 1 | SetIntByName Wpn_MissileLauncher 1" )
To unlock all Collector Ship weapons, add:
Bindings=( Name="NumPadThree", Command="SetIntByName Wpn_SuperAssaultRifle 1 | SetIntByName Wpn_SuperShotgun 1 | SetIntByName Wpn_SuperSniperRifle 1" )
Unlocked weapons will stay unlocked for subsequent play-throughs for the current career, and it is possible to get all Collector Ship weapons (although you must still have the proper class to actually equip them).
2. By removing or changing weapon dependency conditions:
Remove bNotRegularWeaponGUI and UnlockPlotID parameters.
If you want to make a special weapon available to your squadmates only if you've unlocked the weapon change the line to:
You can use the method to unlock all special weapons for your companions. The M-300 Claymore's (SFXWeapon_FlakGun) code is
Wpn_SuperShotgun and the M-98 Widow's (SFXWeapon_MassCannon) is
Unlocking Bonus Powers
Change the AchievementID parameter to
Unlocking Squad Appearances
Change the PlotFlag parameter to
Changing Squad Weapon Loadouts
You are able to define which weapon classes are available to which player classes and companions.
[SFXGame.SFXPlayerSquadLoadoutData], located under the BIOGame section
Replace a LoadoutWeapons_* value to one of the following:
There are four ways to enable unlimited ammo:
- Open the properties of a weapon (e.g.,
[SFXGameContent_Inventory.SFXWeapon_Needler]section under for the M-15 Vindicator) and change
bInfiniteAmmo=true. The weapon will now spend ammo from the magazine and has to be reloaded, but spare ammo will never decrease. Other weapons are unaffected.
- In the
AmmoPerShot=0. None of your weapons will spend any ammo when firing and don't need to be reloaded. For M-920 Cain do the same in [SFXGameContent_Inventory.SFXHeavyWeapon_NukeLauncher].
- Changing the "reload" binding to
( Name="Shared_Reload", Command="TryReload | initammo 999" )in the [SFXGame.SFXGameModeBase] section.. This will refill spare ammunition every time the reload button is pressed. This affects only non-heavy weapons.
- Changing the "shoot" combat binding to read
( Name="Shared_Shoot", Command="initammo 999 | SwapWeaponIfEmpty | FireWeapon | OnRelease StopFiringWeapon" )will reset the player's spare ammunition every time the fire trigger is pressed. This affects all weapons.
Note: By using second and fourth you won't able to reload your weapon. That will result in inability to make progress in the Lazarus Project medbay (the door won't unlock until you reload). The bInfiniteAmmo tweak will force you to empty your clip in order to leave. Once your clip is empty, the Shepard will reload the pistol and the door will be opened.
Toggle Command Menu
Note: Modifying this line of code inside Coalesced.ini may crash the game's API or prevent it from loading.
The default method to view the HUD screen is to press and hold a key until you want to return to the "action". A different approach is to toggle the HUD so it will stay on by pressing a key, and return to the game when the same button is pressed again. To enable Command Menu toggle find the line in [SFXGame.SFXGameModeBase] section.
Bindings=( Name="PC_ExitCommandMenu", Command="OnRelease ExitCommandMenu" ) and change it to
Bindings=( Name="PC_ExitCommandMenu", Command="ExitCommandMenu" )
