StarCraft 2 may have released on PC nearly a full decade ago, but the game is still alive and well. There have been some major changes (like StarCraft 2 going free to play) and a handful of expansions, but the core audience is still dedicated very active. Although most of the game's attention is focused on the competitive multiplayer scene, there is still a very exciting and challenging single-player campaign for players to power through, as well.
One exciting difference between StarCraft 2's single-player campaign and the multiplayer is the ability to cheat like crazy. Obviously cheats are forbidden from online multiplayer matches and could get players into a lot of trouble, but the single-player side of Blizzard's RTS is full of potential cheats to unlock and take advantage of. Even though many PC gamers probably completed the single-player stories ages ago, it's well worth revisiting just to use some of these ridiculous cheats and take advantage of the system.
Before starting to use these cheats, keep in mind that they will make your current save ineligible for any achievements. Players can still unlock achievements in a separate save slot, but not on one where cheats have been used.
To get started, press Enter and then type in any of the following commands. The cheat should take effect immediately:
God style - TerribleTerribleDamage
Immediate victory - WhatIsBestInLife
Immediate defeat - LetsJustBugOutAndCallItEven
Disable fog of war - TookTheRedPill
Disable the need for supplies - Bunker55AliveInside
Gain 5000 minerals - SpectralTiger

Unlock all UNN TV news broadcasts - StayClassyMarSara (Does Not work in Heart of the Swarm)
In custom maps add 5000 Terrazine - Jaynestown

These are some of the most entertaining and useful codes for StarCraft 2, but it's possible that there are others available for use, as well. Blizzard definitely loves its pop culture references and Easter eggs, so it's no surprise to see references to Star Wars, Iron Man, and other popular franchises throughout the list of codes.
