    1. First you must activate the Developers Console: you do this at the main menu, select “Options,” then “Keyboard/Mouse.” Enable “Allow Developers Console.”
    2. While playing the game on any difficulty level, press the tilde key (which looks like ~ on your keyboard) to display the console window. After you enable the cheat console, type “Sv_Cheats 1? and then press ENTER. This will enable the cheat mode. After that enter the following codes and hit ENTER to activate them. Now go directly to the cheat codes list below.
    3. On the Steam control panel, Right Click with your mouse on the “Left 4 Dead 2” option, and select “Properties” under the “My Games” tab. In the General tab, select “Set Launch Options”, enter “-console” in that field, and accept it. Start the game, and the console window should appear. Enter “bind p toggleconsole” as a console command. Close the console window, and start a single player game. While playing the game, press P to display the console window, then enter “sv_cheats 1” and press ENTER to enable cheat mode. Look at the bottom for a list of map names. * (If the message “Can’t use cheats now; please exit to main menu and start your own server with “map mapname” so that you can enable cheats.” appears, enable the “map c5m1_waterfront” or “map c5m2_park” code. You will return to the main menu. Enable either “map” code again, then enable the “sv_cheats 1” code again.) Here’s how it’s done in the game…

    This video by Cheatmaster shows how to enable cheat codes:

    Note: You can enter cheats not only in single player, but in multiplayer as well, but in that case the server you are playing on needs to have Sv_Cheats set to “1” and only the owner of a dedicated or local server can do that.
