Administrative Commands for the Administrative Player


To Whitelist an Admin on a Rented Server:

(Whitelisting allows you to use admin commands without logging in through console)

1) Create a file called AllowedCheaterSteamIDs.txt in the directory \ShooterGame\Saved\

2) In the AllowedCheaterSteamIDs.txt file, list the STEAM64 IDs you wish to have access to admin commands. STEAM64 ID looks like this: 7656119xxxxxxxxxx

To Give Admin Access to a Player on a Non-Dedicated Server:

1) Select Host\Local

2) Select “HOST DEDICATED SERVER” (note: you DO NOT want to load your non-dedicated just yet.)

3) Invite the people you want to have admin command access.

4) Use the on-screen options to admin the players. Basically, click the player you want and then click the “add admin” button, you will see their name transfer to the administrator section.

5) Ask friends to exit to main menu

6) Host your local, non-dedicated server.

7) Your friends once logged in, can use “admincheat <command>“.

If you aren’t already in the command console, press TAB to open it up.

Remember to use EnableCheats <password> before using the commands below.
