Every server owner knows the hard work it takes to maintain and monitor their server as the administrator. This is why game developers have implemented super helpful commands to accomplish tasks in a short amount of time with little effort. Today, we’ll be going over all the server commands you can use in Unturned to manage your server with the utmost efficiency. Let’s begin.

The List

This is the compiled list of commands that can be input by admins in an Unturned server.

/Admin [SteamID | Player] – Adds the specified player to the list of users allowed to use admin commands in the chat. Basically, anyone that this command is used on will be able to use all other commands.

/Airdrop – This forces a dropship to fly over and perform an airdrop.

/Ban [SteamID | Player]/[Reason]/[Duration] – Bans the specified player for a specified reason that the player can set along with a duration. The default value is one year and is shown in the console. Users attempting to connect to the server will see the remaining duration and the reason of the ban.

/Bans – Shows a list of the current bans.

/Bind [IP] – Binds is a specific internal IP to the socket. Default is, meaning that all IPv4 addresses on the local machine can be used to connect to the server.

/Chatrate [Number] – Assigns a minimum time between chat messages to prevent spamming.

/Cheats [Enable | Disable] – Assigns your server to access certain commands, such as Give, and can only be used in the server’s commands.dat file.

/Kill [SteamID | Player] – Kills the specified player in-game.

/Loadout [SkillsetID]/[ItemID]/[ItemID]/… – Gives players each item when spawning. Using a skillset ID of 255 gives the item to everyone. Can only be used in a server console or the server’s Commands.dat file. SkillsetIDs are from 0-10 in the same order as displayed when editing a survivor. 255 = All Skillsets.

/Log [Chat]/[Join/Leave]/[Death]/[Anticheat] – Enables logging Chat/Join/Leave/Death messages. Each parameter can only be Y or N.

/Password [Text] – Assigns the codeword required for entry to the server.

/Permit [SteamID]/[Tag] – Adds the specified player to the list of users allowed to join the server. This sort of acts like a whitelist in Minecraft.

/Sync – Allows players to share savedata between your servers.

/Teleport [SteamID | Player]/[SteamID | Player | Location | wp |bed] – Teleports the first player to the second or a location. If the input is abbreviated, the command will choose the player or location based on what is closest alphabetically. Use wp to teleport to the selected waypoint on the map. Use bed to teleport to bed. If you want to teleport yourself you can omit the first SteamID or Player.

/Vehicle [SteamID | Player]/[VehicleID] – Gives the specified player a vehicle.

/Weather [None | Storm | Blizzard] – This starts or stops the current weather cycle.

/Welcome [Text]/[R]/[G]/[B] – Sets a chat box welcome message shown to clients when connected to the server.

/Whitelisted – This makes only permitted players allowed to join the server. Use at your own risk!

/Votify [Vote Allowed Y|N]/[Pass Cooldown]/[Fail Cooldown]/[Vote Duration]/[Vote Percentage]/[Required Players] – Sets up voting. Pass/fail cooldown specifies the amount of time that players must wait after a successful/failed vote before initiating another vote. Vote duration specifies the amount of time for each vote to remain active. Vote percentage indicates the percentage of “yes” votes required for a successful vote and must be expressed in decimals (e.g., 0.6 for 60%). Required players specifies the minimum number of connected players in order to initiate a vote.

To use any of these commands, all you have to do is press J to open up the cheat input box. Keep in mind that for most of these commands, you will need Admin privelages which must be granted by the owner of the server (even if that is you). You can then type in any of the commands listed above.


That’s the entire list! I know there’s a lot of them, but you will rarely use all of them consistently. These commands should allow you to manage and run your server the way you need to with minimal effort. Be on the lookout for much more content regarding Unturned in the future, and with that, have a great day!
