Quick Overview

The combatsound command in Europa Universalis IV is used to control the frequency at which random combat sounds are played during the combat view.

The value range is from 0 to 50. A lower number makes the sounds play less often, while a higher number makes them play more frequently.

This is done to add immersion to the game experience.

In-Depth Description

The combatsound command in Europa Universalis IV, when used, determines how frequently the combat view in the game will generate a random sound. The command is followed by a numeric value that ranges from 0 to 50, with 0 representing no sound being generated as a result of combat and 50 meaning a sound will be generated with the highest possible consistency.

For instance, if you input combatsound 10, this sets the chance to a low 10 out of 50 or 20% chance that a random sound will play after each combat round. On the other hand, using combatsound 50 would mean that a random sound play after each combat round without fail.

The use of the combatsound command is generally a matter of player preference, depending on how immersive or 'noisy' they want their combat experience to be. Some players might prefer not to have the disruption of random sounds during combat, thus setting the value to a low number or zero, while others might want the increased sense of realism and activity that comes with regular combat sounds, so they set the value to a higher number.

It's generally useful for you when you want to customize your audio settings or increase your immersion during warfare in the game.

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 .
