Squad Admin

Introduction

Our public servers are licensed and therefore they appear in the primary server list in-game.
This means that for these servers our admins must not only follow our own rules but also those from the Official Squad Admin Guide
As with any of our servers, all full [RIP] members have access to some form of admin, so we are never short of an admin.
To apply for your admin rights see this forum

The Console

 

To use the commands within the game, bring up the console and enter the commands.
To access the console double-tap the` (back tick) or ¬ (negation) key found on the top left of most keyboards (see image below).

An alternative way to access the console, is via the in-game text keys which by default are J, K and L and then delete the "say team/All" and then type your commands.
For most commands you can start typing with the letter A on your keyboard and a list of available admin commands will display.
Using the arrow keys you can select the command or type in the same text into the console.

Spectator (Admin) Camera Rules

The Admin camera is an in-game floating camera solely for Senior Admins, AI and streamer use.
It is used for a variety of reasons, including:

  • Catching Hackers
  • Catching Glitchers
  • Catching players camping mains
  • Training (For Academy Instructors)
  • Filming in game footage (Training, Matches or Events)

Public server Rules

  • The Admin Cam is not to be used for any benefit to yourself, your team or your enemy.
  • Any breaches will result in Senior Admin being removed and/or removal from the clan.
  • We run clean servers with well established rules and [RIP] want it to stay that way.
    NOTE:
    • You can use the Admin camera whether Alive, Bleeding out or Dead.
    • It is encouraged that you use the camera when you are Dead.
    • Unless a serious issue arises that leaves you no choice (e.g Hackers) then an allowance has to be made.
    • Keeping the use of the admin camera to a minimum and whilst dead will help to avoid confusion from players on our server thinking a [RIP] Member is hacking/cheating.
