Battlefield 3 Console Commands

Here are some simple but useful Battlefield 3 Console Commands to keep track of your game’s performance and also how to execute other commands in Battlefield 3.

First off, Battlefield 3 has a number of commands that can be entered into its console. To bring up the console, press the tilde key ( ~ ), which is just above the tab key.

To execute a command it must be typed like this example: Load into the game and open the console and type in “render.drawfps 1” and press enter to display your framerate in the top right corner of the screen. The number at the end of the command means: 1 = on and 0 = off.
