Quick Overview

The bearhaslanded command in Europa Universalis IV is used to spawn the nation Jan Mayen on a random coastal province.

This command could be considered unwise because Jan Mayen is an extremely overpowered AI-controlled nation due to its special Polar Bear unit type.

This could disrupt the balance in the game when this nation is spawned.

In-Depth Description

The command bearhaslanded in Europa Universalis IV (EU4) is a console command that spawns a unique formable nation known as Jan Mayen. It does this by integrating the province that the player currently has selected in the game.

Here's a more detailed explanation:

  1. What does it mean: When you enter the bearhaslanded command in the console, the game spawns the nation of Jan Mayen, which is led by a bear (hence the command name). You can also optionally specify a province ID to have the nation spawn in a specific province. If no province ID is specified, it will spawn in a random province.

  2. How it can be helpful: This command is mostly used for amusement and to add an element of unpredictability to the game. Jan Mayen is an 'Easter Egg' nation with certain buffs that can make it a powerful adversary or ally. It can be a fun way to shake up a standard game, though, it doesn't offer much strategic benefit.

  3. When should I use it: Since there's no practical advantage to spawning Jan Mayen, you should use it when you want a fun and unexpected twist in your game, that's not aimed at a competitive or strategically sound play. Jan Mayen is very strong and can potentially imbalance the game, which might either be a negative or a positive aspect, depending on what you're looking for in that specific gameplay session.

How to Open the Command Console

In EU4, cheats are executed from the command console, a text box that you type commands into.

To open the command console press the ~(tilde) key, which is typically located under ESC (escape).

If your keyboard does not have that key, or pressing ~ does not work, try the following keys:

  • ~
  • SHIFT + 2
  • SHIFT + 3
  • ALT + 2 + 1

Type your command into the console, and then press ENTER .
