How do you enter Scum admin commands?

Scum admin commands are easy to enter, making it a matter of moments to get the items you want. All you have to do is have a list of commands (like this one) on hand while playing the game, hit T to bring up the text chat box, put in a hashtag, and then enter the command string followed by the desired item ID. For example, if you want to grab an MP5, you need to hit T, then enter #spawnitem bd_weapon_mp5 followed by the Enter key. Hit TAB and you should spot the item on the floor nearby. It’s also helpful to remember that any spaces in an item name should be replaced by an _.

There’s no need to worry about upper case either, Scum admin commands are not case sensitive.

Best Scum admin commands

Those are the very basics, but if you want to have some real fun with Scum console commands you’ll need to know a few specific item and character names. The full list is massive and tough to navigate, so we will list some of the most interesting, useful, and powerful console commands for Scum below.

Spawn bear
#spawncharacter bp_cow2
Spawns a bear that sounds like a cow right in front of you, because regular bears are boring.

Spawn zombie
#spawncharacter bp_zombie2
Whether you’re after some target practice or just some clothes to shred, spawning a puppet is always useful.

Spawn MRE Cheeseburger
#spawnitem mre_cheeseburger
Spawns a ready to eat meal, which is very helpful for topping off your metabolism on the go. Can substitute mre_cheeseburger for mre_tunasalad or mre_stew.

Spawn combat knife
#spawnitem 1h_mk5000_metal
Places a high damage knife on the ground in front of you, can also be used as a cutting tool.

Spawn katana
#spawnitem 2h_katana
The best melee weapon in the game by a country mile, this weapon will annihilate Puppets with ease.

Spawn backpack
#spawnitem assault_backpack1
Backpacks are among the most useful items in the game and getting one should be a priority. You can spawn a variety of different backpacks as well, so while the assault backpack is a solid compromise between weight and burden, you can also get yourself a massive hiking backpack by typing in #spawnitem hiking_backpack_01.

Spawn bandages
#spawnitem emergency_bandage_big
Take a knock in Scum and you’ll need to bandage it up, which often requires having clean rags or cutting up your own clothes. We prefer to spawn in some bandages for free. Other useful medical supplies include antibiotics_01, painkillers_01, and vitamins_01.

Spawn weapons
#spawnitem bp_weapon_weaponname
There are a lot of weapons in Scum, so you’ll probably want a few different firearms or to test them all out. Here are the Scum admin commands for a few of the best:

bp_weapon_98k_karabiner ()

You’ll also want a magazine or clip for all of those weapons so you don’t have to individually chamber rounds. This is really easy as all you have to do is put in the same Scum admin command but replace weapon with magazine.

You can also summon in some handy attachments like scopes, but most guns will require a scope rail first. For example, if you want to add an acog to an AK47 you will need to put in #spawnitem bp_scoperail-ak47 followed by #spawnitem weaponscope_acog_01.

Finally, you’ll want some ammo. This is a little trickier as ammo types are very unclear in-game – it can usually be found by examining the weapon in your inventory. The input string for ammo is #spawnitem cal_ammotype but can also be modified by adding ammobox_closed or ammobox_open to the end.

Spawn shelter
#spawnitem shelter
These can be a pain to put together so just spawn one to save yourself from ferrying long sticks back and forth for half an hour.

Spawn storage box
#spawnitem improvised_wooden_box
Another useful item for setting up a small base, storage boxes take a lot of wood to build so we recommend spawning one in wherever possible.

Spawn Santa
#spawnitem santa
Why bother with military gear when you can run around dressed as Santa? These clothes are among a few items that can only be accessed via Scum admin commands so you can mark yourself out by wearing them in a private server.

Spawn sentry
#spawncharacter bp_sentry
If you want a real challenge or simply want to create some chaos we recommend spawning in a few of the massive, robotic sentries.
