How to enable a debug console in XCOM 2

To be able to launch the console window in-game, you will need to find XCOM 2 in your Steam library and right click on it. In the pop-up window choose "Properties", and then click ‘’Set launch options’’. Paste ‘’-allowconsole -log -autodebug’’ in the opened text window and click ‘’OK’’. From now on, you will be able to open console window with pressing the ‘’~’’ key.

While XCOM 2 does not have any penalties for using console cheats and commands, do notice that it will make the game considerably easier and may end up ruining your gaming experience.
