To max it out without using a handiness skill cheat, you will have to put in a lot of hours fixing stuff, repairing, upgrading, and woodworking. Although these activities are fun, sometimes you just need to level up fast. 

This is especially true if you want to rank up the chosen career ladder, be it for the Civil Designer career, Boss Career Branch in Criminal Career, or Engineer Career. All of these require some dexterity and handiness which take patience to achieve.

Even if you are not into any of these fields, you can still use some fast progress for carving and selling real wood masterpieces, pumpkin carving, or just improving your home. So, if this is something you are aiming for, a good handiness skill cheat will do the trick!

How to Activate Cheats?

For any handiness skill cheat to work, it is essential to activate cheats, first. To do that, first press CTRL + SHIFT + C to open a dialogue box where you can type in cheats. Then, type a universal cheat code, testingcheats true in the box, and hit ENTER. You will be notified that cheats are activated, which means you are ready to cheat leveling up that handiness skill! 

If you are playing on Xbox, press and hold RT + LT + LB + RB, and if you are gaming on Playstation, press R1 + R2 + L1 + L2. For Mac, you’ll use CMD + SHIFT + C to open the dialogue box. Use this method of opening the dialogue box every time you want to use a handiness skill cheat.  

How to Max Out Handiness Skill with Cheats?
