Admin commands (sourcemod)
This page lists all of the major admin commands in SourceMod.
Chat Triggers: Remember that commands do not have to be entered through the console; they can be entered via chat triggers. For example, saying "!ban bail" in chat will execute the same command as "sm_ban" and forward the output to chat. You can also use "/" instead of "!" to suppress your command from being shown to users.
How to Target
- name - Exact name match, or partial name match (if the partial string is unique).
- #userid - If userid is numeric, the player will be targeted by their userid (found via the "users" command).
- #steamid - Matches by Steam ID. If you use colons (:), you must enclose in quotes. Otherwise, you can use an underscore (_) instead. Examples: "#STEAM_0:1:4433", #STEAM_0_1_4433
- #<name> - Exact name match after the # sign.
- @all - All players (available on most commands).
- @bots - All bots (available on most commands).
- @alive - All alive players (available on most commands that accept alive players).
- @dead - All dead players (available on most commands that accept dead players).
- @humans - All non-bot players (available on most commands).
- @aim - Current player the admin is directly aiming at.
- @me - Target self.
- @!me - Target everyone but yourself.
Note that name matches occur last, "magic targets" (such as # and @) are processed first. This means that "@all" will target @all players, even if there is a player named "@all". You should target "#@all" instead.
- @ct or @cts - All Counter-Terrorists
- @t or @ts - All Terrorists
Team Fortress 2 Only:
- @red - All RED team members
- @blue - All BLU team members
