How to Ban/Unban a Player

1) Verify the SteamID of the player you need to ensure it's correct. You can easily find a player's SteamID by copying the link to their profile and pasting it on this website.

2) Open the console in the game panel.

3) Enter the command /banid "SteamID" "reason for banning" to ban the player.

When using the /banid command, enclose the SteamID in quotes.
If you want to ban a player by their nickname instead of their SteamID, use the command /ban "Player's Nickname" "reason for banning".

4) If you want to unban a player, enter the command /unban SteamID. No quotes are needed when using this command.
