The Sims 4: Vampires Cheats

How to Use Cheats to Get Powers or Change to or Remove Vampire

The Sims 4 Vampires Cheats

Vampires cheats are a bit more complex than other types, so let's do a tutorial on how to use them. With these, you have the power to change your Sim into a Vampire or remove the vampire occult trait from a Sim, reverting them back to normal. We can also add and remove vampire powers using cheats, though using specific traits is actually the most difficult type to use because it involves Sims.Get_Sim_By_ID_By_Name. I curate my main Cheats page but do not like to get too specific there, so here are the vampires cheats in detail.

For a full tutorial on How to Cheat in The Sims 4 click here. You should use Control + Shift + C and type testingcheats on in order to ensure all of these work. You will need to open the console to type the commands below. Press enter when done and hit escape to close the box (or Ctrl + Shift + C again). Mac users: use Command instead of Ctrl.

Make Sim a Vampire with Cheats

How to turn a Sim into a vampire with cheats in The Sims 4
The easiest cheat (and most requested) by far is to turn a Sim into a Vampire

It is better to let the game handle the transition, though you can certainly type Traits.Equip_Trait Trait_OccultVampire to turn your Sim. However it's less bug-prone to give the Sim the moodlet/countdown to becoming a vampire. Doing it this way you can also have control over when a Sim turns in a Vampire.

  • Stats.Set_Stat Commodity_BecomingVampire 1 - Your Sim will turn into a Vampire in 36 hours. +1 Uncomfortable Moodlet.
  • Stats.Set_Stat Commodity_BecomingVampire 721 - Changes into Vampire in 24 hours. +2 Uncomfortable Moodlet.
  • Stats.Set_Stat Commodity_BecomingVampire 1441 - Your Sim will turn in 12 hours. +3 Uncomfortable Moodlet.
  • Stats.Set_Stat Commodity_BecomingVampire 2100 - Your Sim will turn in 1 hour.
  • Stats.Set_Stat Commodity_BecomingVampire 2160 - Turns a Sim into a Vampire immediately on use.

Make a Vampire Sim Normal

This one's much easier - Traits.Remove_Trait Trait_OccultVampire will immediately remove the Vampire trait from your Sim. This is required to be a vampire in the game engine, so your Sim will switch back to normal and lose all their powers and weaknesses.

Increase (or Max) Vampire Level

How to in The Sims 4
Vampires can use Dark Meditation to regenerate the energy they use for abilities.

There are five ranks of Vampire in The Sims 4. You start as a Fledgling, with experience points gradually ranking you up to Minor, Prime, Master and Grand Master. There are a lot of steps along the way, as you can be a Level 3 Minor Vampire for example. Anyway, doing actions as a Vampire gives you experience that leads to rank ups and the ability to purchase new powers via Power Points. Every 4 ranks or so however, you have to take on a weakness. Here's how you can give your Sim Vampire XP and rank up very easily:

  • Stats.Set_Stat RankedStatistic_Occult_VampireXP 202 - Become a Minor Vampire
  • Stats.Set_Stat RankedStatistic_Occult_VampireXP 630 - Become a Prime Vampire
  • Stats.Set_Stat RankedStatistic_Occult_VampireXP 1058 - Become a Master Vampire
  • Stats.Set_Stat RankedStatistic_Occult_VampireXP 1486 - Become a Grand Master Vampire
  • Stats.Set_Stat RankedStatistic_Occult_VampireXP 1593 - Cap Vampire Power Points

The reason for there not being a fifth 'rank' is you starting as Fledgling, and the final one provides the last few power points you get after hitting Grand Master. You will actually go up multiple levels each time you use the cheat, because vampire power increases 17x on the way up to Grand Master Vampire. You must gain 4 levels to go from Fledgling to Minor for example. You can fine tune the amount of XP based on your needs, these are just the notable ranks. You will take on weaknesses when you level up to another major rank.

Cheat Vampire Powers and Weaknesses

How to Get Vampire Powers with Cheats in The Sims 4
Vampires get Power Points to purchase Perks as they level up, but must choose Vampire Weaknesses each time they gain a major rank. It's possible to use cheats to reset vampire powers and weaknesses. You can even give your vampire 0 weaknesses if you like!

Get Sim ID Cheat to Reset Vampire's Perks

How to in The Sims 4
Getting the Sim ID is used in many advanced cheats in The Sims 4.

You can reset perks on your vampire with a cheat, but first we must learn to use Sims.Get_Sim_ID_By_Name. In my case, I'm using Geoffrey Landgraab, so I type: Sims.Get_Sim_ID_By_Name Geoffrey Landgraab. The game spits out 164109787423017861. It's easy to copy it and double check, looking at it 3 digits at a time. This is true for dealing with long numbers in general. Now that I have the Sim ID I can make use of two cheats.

Cheat to Reset Vampire Powers

How to in The Sims 4
Now that we have the SimID, we can use the cheat to refund all of the power points.

Bucks.Lock_All_Perks_For_Bucks_Type 40961 (Sim ID) true will reset all vampire power points but not weaknesses. So for my Geoffrey Landgraab example, I'll type Bucks.Lock_All_Perks_For_Bucks_Type 40961 164109787423017861 true - this will reset the vampire powers I'd selected.

How to in The Sims 4
All this Vampire's powers are reset, but he still has weaknesses. We can reset weaknesses, or even buy the perks we want then remove the weaknesses permanently.

Cheat to Remove Vampire Weaknesses

How to in The Sims 4

However, as I said this leaves weaknesses untouched. I can use Bucks.Lock_All_Perks_for_Bucks_Type 40962 (Sim ID) false to reset all the weaknesses. If I spend my points, then leave the screen and use this cheat I can have a Vampire with no weaknesses. Because the game only makes you pick weaknesses when you spend points, you can simply Esc or hit X to get out of the screen if you go to make sure they are gone. You can't click accept, but you can leave without assigning weaknesses.

Other Vampires-Specific Cheats

Fill a Vampire's "Vampire Energy" bar - Stats.Set_Stat Commodity_Motive_Visible_Vampire_Power 100. You can drain it with -100.
If you want to kill a Vampire with sun but don't want to wait, use Stats.Set_Stat Commodity_Vampire_Sunexposure -100 - good for recording video or getting screenshots for stories without all the speed 3.

Select one of the two Vampire Aspirations that come with the Game Pack and use Aspirations.Complete_Current_Milestone, press up on your keyboard and hit enter again. Do this 4x and you'll finish the Aspiration and get the Reward Trait along with all the Satisfaction that comes with completing the milestones.

Vampires Game Pack Skills: Max Vampire Lore & Pipe Organ

There are only two Skill Cheats in The Sims 4 Vampires - Vampire Lore and the instrument, which functions much like Piano, the Pipe Organ Skill. It is very odd in that it has 15 levels. Use Stats.Set_Skill_Level VampireLore 15 to max it , though you can sub in whatever level you want. Pipe Organ can be cheated with Stats.Set_Skill_Level Major_PipeOrgan 10 to max it.

If you do this command: Bucks.Lock_All_Perks_for_Bucks_Type 40962 (Sim ID) false

Don't include "false" at the end of the command to remove any weaknesses AND remove all weakness points. If you still want the weakness points to use later, keep "false" at the end.


- Remove active weaknesses AND remove the points: "Bucks.Lock_All_Perks_for_Bucks_Type 40962 (Sim ID)"

- Remove active weaknesses and KEEP the points: "Bucks.Lock_All_Perks_for_Bucks_Type 40962 (Sim ID) false"

If you want to know why that happens, this is likely due to multiple signatures of the function called by the command. In laymens terms, they are different cheats with a similar outcome.


The cheat to rank my sim up to master vampire won’t work!!! What do I do?!?!


The vampire cheats are working in my game. Did you get the correct sims ID? Remember in the Guide an example Sims ID is used, for your game you must use YOUR Sims ID. Maybe you've made a typo? Honestly, it's difficult to know what has gone wrong for you with so little information.

Mrs Tragic Clownsays...

bucks.lock_all_perks_for_bucks_type 40962 {simID} false is the correct cheat. I tried 40961 doesn't work and it didn't work not including false either. I'm on the PC if that makes a difference.

Claudia Trindadesays...

Being a Witcher fan, i couldnt resist naming my character Geralt of Rivia. Unfortunately, the ID cheat seems to have a problem with this name, not presenting any response (tryed it on characters with names without spaces and it worked fine, so i'm guessing its the "of" part of the last name that somehow bugs it.

Already tryed the following:

Sims.Get_Sim_ID_By_Name Geralt of Rivia (doesnt give any answer)

Geralt ofRivia


Geraltof Rivia (these 3 last ones, says there's no character with that name)



Cheats won't work on any name that is more than two words. So only a 1st name and a last name works. If you changed your sims name to simply "Geralt" as their first name and "Rivia" as their last name the cheats would work.


I am playing on PS4....BUT....If you use 'dashes' instead of Space your name SHOULD Work. I Cheated Guidry into being a playable Sim with the Cas.Fulleditmode cheat 'Add to Family'. I then went into his CAS and Edited his Name being its actually NOT there. Its just Guidry. BUT his Actual Name Is 'Claude René Duplantier Guidry'. I Wanted Him To Have His Name. So I put it in at first as 'Claude René Du Plantir Guidry'. There sadly is a Character limit so it wouldnt allow for one more character. I figured sacrificing the silent 'E' was best. BUT....The cheats wouldnt work when Id put in the name. So I was confused and thought Maybe it was because I have two names....BUT I have a Family with a Dash in their last name which is two names (I made them part of a Marriage where the two last names of the couple were kept) and the Cheats all work fine with them. SO....I changed Guidry's name to 'Claude-René-Du Plantir-Guidry' and it works perfectly fine now with all the cheats I've used....Albeit thats alot to write though luckily the PS4 Keyboard kinda remembers it....Most times. So give that a try and name them 'Geralt Of-Rivia' OR Geralt-of Rivia' whichever Name Aesthetic works for you and maybe itll work. As I said Im on PS4 so things might be different for that Verses PC But I believe the coding is pretty much the same as far as cheats and just the buttons are different so is SHOULD work. Hope that helps!! =D


I'm trying to remove my vampire sims weaknesses but nothing happens =/ im sure ive done it just as it's described, dont understand what im doing wrong. I cant even reset the powers. Dont really understand the part about picking powers and leaving the screen though.


You have to select all perks end then try this cheat first Bucks.Lock_All_Perks_For_Bucks_Type 40961 (Sim ID) true

End then use this second Bucks.Lock_All_Perks_for_Bucks_Type 40962 (Sim ID) false


On the cheek to remove the vampire's weakness.

In the cheat code, don't include false. With false not included, your weaknesses are still removed. But your weakness points are not restored.

So you can still remove your weaknesses and you don't have to keep entering the cheat to remove your weaknesses every time you level up your vampire.


Nice tip! TY

Michael Parkersays...

Something went wrong when I reset my spent power points...all reset points are now gone.

Any idea?


Nope, can't tell without a lot more detail. I suggest just cheating some powers back in so you basically have the same amount of points.


Thank you this helped a lot


i removed vampirism but my sim can still only sleep in coffins. what now


So try this

Testingcheats on

traits.equip_trait trait_OccultVampire

Sims.Get_Sim_ID_By_Name Geoffrey Landgraab Where your sims name is there rather then Geoffrey landgrab this gives you a number

bucks.lock_all_perks_for_bucks_type 40962 {simID} This should remove the weaknesses then to turn human

traits.remove_trait trait_OccultVampire

I'll keep my fingers crossed for you


NOTHING is working to remove my sim's vampire powers.

Megan Parsonssays...

the perks cheats (Bucks.Lock_All_Perks_For_Bucks_Type 40961 (Sim ID) true and Bucks.Lock_All_Perks_for_Bucks_Type 40962 (Sim ID) false) arent working im on pc.


They are working in my game so perhaps you have made a typo? Maybe copy and paste these ones, putting in your target sims ID of course, and see if that helps.

bucks.lock_all_perks_for_bucks_type 40962 <simID> false

bucks.lock_all_perks_for_bucks_type 40961 <simID> true

I’m on console and it also doesn’t work


thank you


this was soo helpful thank you <3


Sadly your cheat for clearing weaknesses on the console does not work. I have tried countless times. If anyone has the actually way of clearing weaknesses for a the ps4 let me know. I tried this one enough to know it’s not accurate.


Thanks a lot
