How To Unban a Friend From Your Own CSGO Server
Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CSGO) has become one of the most popular first-person shooter games in the world since its release. Many players enjoy creating their own private servers to play with friends, allowing them to customize the game settings and have a more personalized experience. However, sometimes mistakes happen, and a friend might get banned from your server. In this blog post, we will guide you through the steps to unban a friend from your own CSGO server.
Step 1: Accessing the Server Console
To unban a friend, you need to have access to the server console. Start by launching your CSGO game and opening the console. You can do this by pressing the tilde (~) key on your keyboard during gameplay. The console will appear as a small window at the top of your screen.
Step 2: Locating the Friend’s SteamID
Once you have access to the console, you need to find your friend’s SteamID to unban them. SteamIDs are unique identifiers assigned to each Steam user. To obtain your friend’s SteamID, have them open their Steam client, go to their profile, and select “Copy SteamID” or “Copy Page URL.” Paste this information somewhere easily accessible for the next step.
Step 3: Unbanning the Friend
With the SteamID in hand, return to the server console. Type the following command:
removeid [SteamID]. Replace “[SteamID]” with the actual SteamID of your friend. Once you’ve entered the command, press enter to execute it.
For example, if your friend’s SteamID was “STEAM_0:0:12345678,” the command would look like this:
removeid STEAM_0:0:12345678. Make sure the SteamID is accurate to avoid unbanning the wrong person.
Step 4: Confirming Successful Unban
After typing and executing the “removeid” command, you should receive a message in the console confirming the successful unbanning of your friend. The message will usually say something like “Removed xx from the banlist.” This indicates that your friend can now rejoin the server without any issues.
Having your friend banned from your own CSGO server can be frustrating. However, with the steps outlined in this blog post, you can easily unban them and continue enjoying the game together. Remember to be cautious while entering the “removeid” command to ensure that you are unbanning the correct person. Enjoy your uninterrupted gaming sessions with your friends!
