Squad Admin Commands

Posted on by justin
Like other FPS titles, such as The Front, Squad has a set of admin commands that administrators can use to help bring order to a server and its games. You can find these admin commands in Squad and learn how to use them below!

How to Use Admin Commands in Squad

Squad Admin Commands Note that admin commands in Squad are only usable if the player has the appropriate access level. Only server administrators can add and remove players from accessing administrative commands. A player with access to admin commands can open the console by double-tapping the tilde (~) key on an English keyboard. Sometimes, this command may not work. If so, press “J” on your keyboard, then delete the “ChatToAll” command that appears.
