How to Enable the In-Game Console on Your TF2 Client

Team Fortress 2 has a native console that allows you to perform commands in-game, such as manually connecting to your server.

The in-game console is disabled by default, however you can enable it by following the steps below:

  1. Launch Team Fortress 2.
  2. In the main menu, click on the gear icon at the bottom of the screen to open the Options menu.
  3. Go to the Keyboard tab and click Advanced...
  4. In the pop-up menu, tick the box beside the Enable Developer Console and click OK.
  5. Press Apply at the bottom right of the screen to apply the setting. Click OK to exit the Options menu.
  6. You can now open the console by pressing the ` key.

Now that you've enabled the console, you can use in-game commands by enabling RCON on your server.
