Cheat Codes: Use one of the following methods to enable the console window:
Go to Half-Life 2: Episode 2 in your "Games" tab in the Steam window. Right click and go to "Properties". In the Properties window, select "Set launch options". Add "-console" and click "OK".
Note: This procedure involves editing a game file; create a backup before proceeding. Use a text editor to edit the "ep2cfgconfig.cfg" file in the game directory. Set the value of the "con_enable" line to "1". Check the "toggleconsole" line to make sure it is bound to a key (default is `).
Press ~ during game play to display the console window and type sv_cheats 1 to enable cheat mode. Then, enter one of the following codes to activate the corresponding cheat function. You can also display the debug menu by pressing [Shift] + 1. Additionally, most other codes from the original Half-Life 2 can be used.

Binding cheats to keys: Display the console window and type sv_cheats 1 to enable cheat mode. Then, type bind followed by a space and the key you wish to bind the code to. Finally, type another space followed by the code. For example, enter bind f12 notarget or bind p ai_disable.
Some codes cannot be bound to a key. To bind them, you must edit your config file. Note: This procedure involves editing a game file; create a backup copy of the file before proceeding. Go to your game directory. Open the "hl2" folder, then the "cfg" folder. Open the config_default file in a text editor. This will be used as a template. Using the same structure, enter the bindings in the following example (the last line is the new entry).
To do this, type bind "F12" press [Tab] three times, and add the cheat command in quotes. After doing this, select all the text under "unbindall" and copy it. Save and close the file. Then, go back to the game directory. Open the "ep2" folder then the "cfg" folder. Open the file "config" in a text editor. You can edit this file directly but you must be able to add the symbols where needed. Paste the previously copied text under the already existing text and save the file. Start the game. Display the console window and type sv_cheats 1 to enable cheat mode. Close the console and press your bound key and it should have activated its defined code.
Using cheats and unlocking achievements: You normally cannot use cheats and unlock achievements. You can use the following key bind commands at the console window to get around this. For God mode, enter the Bind' <key> '"sv_cheats 1; wait; god; wait; wait; wait; sv_cheats 0" console command. For all weapons, enter the Bind' <key> '"sv_cheats 1; wait; impulse 101; wait; wait; wait; sv_cheats 0" console command.
Start a game, type sv_cheats 1, enable the god and impulse 101code. Use the sk_max code followed by givecurrentammo for lots of ammunition (for example, sk_max_pistol 999). By doing this you do not have to worry about running out. After this is done, save the game and exit the game completely. Restart the game. Load the game you just saved and continue play. You will be a one-man army, invincible and equipped with ammo, and achievements will be unlocked during game play. Note: You may need to enable the givecurrentammo code for each weapon to have the quantity you specified in the sk_max_<weapon> <number> code.
Hidden pumpkins: Set the system date to October 31. After you are ambushed by Hunters and Combine at a big house, drive along the road. Near where the supply cache is found you will see an old truck. Go up to it. There will be lots of pumpkins lying on the ground.
See G-man disappear: G-man can be seen in the "Under The Radar" episode, entering the White Forest Inn immediately after the cache in the small cave. Once you get the cache, get in your car and drive into the two dead trees past the guard rail. Use the turbo just when you are between them, then follow the road. You will see him enter the inn and, if your timing is good enough and you do not crash into anything, disappear. This may require several attempts.

Faster construction: You can build faster with engineers by hitting the building with your wrench.
Survive your Equalizer's taunt: Have a Medic buff you to 300 HP, then change to the Equalizer and do its taunt as soon as possible. You will not die, but you will be left with minimal HP and be thrown straight up. Make sure to do it below a low ceiling or bridge, or else you will die from the fall damage.
Airblast: The Pyro can airblast people or rockets, stickies, and grenades by Right Clicking when equipped with the normal flamethrower. It does not work with the Backburner. This can be useful to throw back an ubered pair going to your sentries or going to the spawn point. Usually the enemies are disoriented by being airblasted and will not react quickly to kill the Pyro, mainly if it is a Demoman aiming for Sentries. You can also throw away stickies that are near your spawn points, on capture points, or on a cart. It is also a way to reach the Hot Potato achievement faster. It is easier with stickies on the ground than a moving rocket when you are not used to airblasting. Because the cost is 25 ammo, airblast only when it is helpful or you will be forced to take ammo pack or to retreat to the nearest dispenser.
Uber limitations: When uber, you cannot push the cart or take a control point. Do not stay with a partner that you have ubered near the cart; it will be a waste of time.
Never take intel if you want to uber. You will not be able to deploy it with intel on your back. If you try to uber a teammate with intel on his back, you will be the only one to become uber.
Updated weapons: To get each of the newer updated weapons, you must get a certain amount of achievements to unlock a milestone achievement, unlocking one of the three weapons for each class.
Mismatched body parts: When a player is gibbed, the positions of the gibs (body parts) do not match where that body part was prior to the gibbing. As well, some class gibs match their beta designs, but not their final counterparts. This is most noticeable with the spy.
Taunt with wrong weapon: When equipped with any weapon, taunt and switch to any other weapon at the same time (preferably with a number on your keyboard rather than the mouse wheel). If timed correctly, your character will do the first weapon's taunt, but he will be holding the weapon you switched to. This may require a few attempts.
Spycrab:The Spycrab is an awkward pose that occurs when a Spy crouches and looks up with with his disguise kit. [Screenshot] [Video]
Humping Sniper: If a Sniper crouches, looks up and keeps zooming in and out with the sniper rifle, he will move his hips back and forth. [Video]
Spy taunting while invisible: This is very similar to the "Taunt with wrong weapon" glitch. As a Spy, choose a weapon to taunt with, and at the correct moment, cloak.
Spycrab taunt: Due to the Spycrab's popularity, Valve created a Spycrab taunt for the disguise kit. The chance of doing this taunt is around 10%.

Chamber 18: At the end of the advanced map for Chamber 18, you will have the same raised platforms as you did in the normal one except now after you leave the lower one, it falls into the toxic water. This forces you to be more precise with your portal jumps. However, you can get past this easily. Do the platform jumping as usual, but if you miss just land on the platform you came out of. You should be able to fire an opposite color portal at the wall where you entered this area, allowing you to go back to the start. All the platforms rise again and the portal is still where you left it. You can now fall into the pit again and be able to portal jump to the next ledge. This take longer but does not require precise timing.
Objects through particle field: The primary objective is to create two portals, one on either side of the field. First, enable the "Portal anywhere" code. Then, shoot one portal on the ground where the particle field is in the middle of the portal. To do this, aim your portal gun as close to the bottom of the field as you can that will still create a portal. Shoot another portal on the ground so that when you look through that portal, the line of the particle field cuts across the portal. Try and enter through the portal on the elevator side without touching the field. Once this is achieved, you may now shoot the color portal below the particle field anywhere you can in the elevator room. You will now have two portals on either side of the field. However, do not touch the field or both portals will be erased. Simply go through the portal and you may bring objects (for example, the companion cube) through to the next level. Note: Be careful where you shoot the portal in the elevator room; if you go through it you may fall through the map.
Overheating Xbox 360: Play the level where you face off with the laser guided robots. Once you get past the first few robots, you must start dropping the boxes on the robots heads so that they fall over. In the little place that you find the first two boxes, crouch and walk behind where the boxes were. You will find a little room with odd music playing and graffiti on the walls that says things such as "The cake is a liar". There also seems to be an Xbox 360 with a pot inside of it. The Xbox 360 is overheating and boiling the water.
Box head pictures: On the level where you get the companion cube after you run past the energy balls and are in the room with the three elevators, there are two doors leading to a catcher, and a platform that is pushed out of the wall. Walk up to the platform that is pushed out. Crouch behind it and walk through the opening. On the left hand side are a group of pictures of people with boxes for heads and hearts around them.
Talking toilet: In the holding cell you start at, walk up to the toilet and press [Use]. After a flushing sound the toilet will say "Thank you for your obeisance".
Companion radio: Start the game and wait for the voice to stop talking. Before you go through the first portal, take the radio on your table. Carry it with you until you get to the first elevator. Carry it through the particle field and it should get destroyed. Play until chamber four as usual. In chamber four, a radio should be dropped down through the tube with the box. It will end up lying in the pit. Leave it in that chamber, and do not destroy it. Play through chamber five for a strange surprise. Activate the two buttons and the door should open as normal. The radio will be sitting in the center of the floor in the next chamber.
Fun with turrets: You can pick them up, toss them around, make them fall indefinitely through two portals, drop a cube on them, etc. Also try the following. Use the incandescent particle field in front of the exit. The computer voice said before that all objects other than yourself and the portal gun will be destroyed. Pick up a turret and toss it into the energy field. The turret will say "ayayayay" as if being electrocuted and disintegrate.
Still Alive song: Listen to the radio in the room you start out in. If the music sounds familiar, it is because the song is an up-tempo version of the "Still Alive".
Portal "mirror": You will need the fully upgraded Portal Gun for this trick. Enable the sv_portal_placement_never_fail 1 and sv_portal_placement_never_bump 1 codes. Place a portal on a flat surface and the second one on top of the first one. The second will cover the first and you will be looking at yourself as if in a mirror. Using cheats and unlocking achievements: There are achievements that you can get for completing certain tasks, however if the sv_cheats code is enabled the achievements are disabled. There is a way around this. There are a few command strings that can be bind to keys which allow you to enable or disable God mode when desired, get all equipment such as weapons, plus the better portal gun. To do this, use the bind <key> "sv_cheats 1; wait; god; wait; wait; wait; sv_cheats 0" console command. For God mode use the bind' <key> '"sv_cheats 1; wait; Impulse 101; wait; wait; wait; sv_cheats 0" console command.

Commentary track: Successfully complete the game. Start a new game and choose a level to get an option to play it with an audio commentary track. How to defeat the Strider: After you climb the ladder and get up on the platform, you will notice a box containing rockets behind one of the metal sheets. If you get on it, you will be able to see a small part of the Strider but it will not see you. Observe its pattern of movement and fire a rocket just before it takes a new position. You will not miss by doing this. Keep firing at it until your cover breaks down. Until then you can easily score about five hits on it without losing any life. Then, move behind another metal sheet and finish off the Strider easily with one or two hits.
