Much like its predecessors in the Starcraft and Warcraft series of games, Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm comes with its own set of cheats that allows players to breeze through the game's single-player campaign without breaking a sweat.

Granted, using these cheats will disable your ability to attain any achievements for the duration for the games in which they're enabled, so only use them if your only intention is to play through the campaign and experience the story. If you have no intention of gaining the achievements or, for that matter, the experience of playing the game the way its developers intended, then by all means use the following cheats, which will provide you with an abundance of minerals, vespene gas, and all matter of unlocks.

Like the previous games, the cheats are references to pop culture and some of the more amusing memes that've cropped up over the years, like the "more dots" World of Warcraft rage video. That's a 50 DKP minus if you haven't seen it.

To toggle these cheats, simply hit the enter key and type them in. Without further ado, here's every cheat the game has to offer, in alphabetical order:
