While the default version of CS:GO doesn't have an admin system, Sourcemod and Metamod do. Setting a player as an admin will allow them to use lots of useful and fun commands, such as burn, ban and slay. You can find a list of CS:GO admin commands here (more can be added with plugins!).
HOW TO ADD A PLAYER AS AN ADMIN
- Login to your server's control panel.
- On the left-hand side, click Files > FTP File Access.
- Navigate to
- Find your Steam ID by following our guide found here (do note that you will need the "Steam ID", not the "SteamID64").
- On a new line, add
"SteamID" "99:z", replacing SteamID with the Steam ID of the player you want to be an admin, formatted as STEAM_1:1:123456789 (if your Steam ID has a 0 after the underscore, replace it with a 1, otherwise it will not work).
- Run the command
sm_reloadadminsin your server console.
- The player will now have access to all commands and can access their admin menu by typing
sm_admininto their game console while connected to the server.
The 99 in the string above is the "immunity level" of the admin. Admins with a lower level of immunity will not be able to run commands that directly affect admins with a higher level of immunity.
99 is the highest level of immunity, meaning no other admins can run commands on ad admin with that immunity level. By default, admins with the same immunity value can run commands on each other.
If you would like to have more control over what permissions are available to a certain player, you can change the Z in the configuration file with any number of the following:
||Reserver slot access.|
||Generic, required for all admins without the Z permission.|
||Kick other players.|
||Ban other players.|
||Slay and damage other players via commands.|
||Change the map or major gameplay features.|
||Change most cvars (options via the console).|
||Execute config files.|
||Special chat privileges (muting).|
||Start or create votes.|
||Set a password on the server.|
||Use RCON Commands.|
||Enable all other permissions and ignore immunity values.|
