Cry of Fear: Hudless/Immersive Mode + Other Commands

It is possible to play Cry of Fear without the crosshair or stamina, health, and ammo bars, making the experience more vulnerable and atmospheric. Try it when you are familiar with the game, or on a second playthrough



  • hud_draw 0 – disables hud
  • hud_draw 1 – enables hud

See screenshots below for the result

cl_fovmultiplier x – change your field of vision. Replace the x with a number between 1.2 and 1.25.

(These values are best for a 1920×1080 resolution, you can add any value higher than 1.0 that will feel comfortable)

Cry of Fear does not have a walk function by default unfortunately, but we can use commands to reduce and restore default speed, achieving the same purpose

Bind alt +walk 
alias +walk "cl_forwardspeed 175; cl_sidespeed 100; cl_backspeed 100; bind alt -walk" 
alias -walk "cl_forwardspeed 300; cl_sidespeed 200; cl_backspeed 200; bind alt +walk"
(These commands replace the default dodge/evade function; you should either rebind your dodge key in options or use a different key in place of “alt”)

Disable screen grain effect and screen blur, both of which are in options > advanced options

A world you are not prepared for
