Quick Overview

The remove_cb command in Europa Universalis IV is used to remove a specific casus belli (a reason or justification for war) from the target country.

This means that the country the command is used on will lose their reason or justification for declaring war on another country, which could potentially prevent a war from happening.

In-Depth Description

The command remove_cb or Remove Casus Belli is a cheat code in Europa Universalis IV (EU4) that allows you to forcibly remove a casus belli, or cause for war, from the targeted country.

Upon entering this command followed by the relevant casus belli code and the country tag, that specific casus belli will be removed from the selected country, meaning they no longer have the justification to declare war based on that particular reason against other nations.

It can be helpful in various situations where you want to maintain or enforce peace without having to deal with the triggering of wars for specific reasons. For instance, if you are playing a diplomatic game and want to limit the number of wars that happen, removing casus belli from other countries can be a way to control their actions.

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 .
