  • F1
  • "
  • @
  • Ö
  • Ø
  • F2
  • Ñ

There are many ways to use the teleport and teleportplayer command in 7DTD, but you may not want (or need) to know each and every one of them. If that's the case, use the links below to jump to the part of this article that's right for you:

  1. Teleport a Player to You
  2. Teleport to Another Player
  3. Teleport to Coordinates

Teleport a Player to You


To teleport a friend or other player to you, the teleportplayer [Target Player ID] [Your Player ID] command is used. This requires that you find out your player ID and the player ID of the player you wish to teleport. You can find these by typing lpi into the console. The number you need is underlined in the below image:

After finding out your player ID, and the player ID of the player you want to teleport to, all you need to do is:

  • Replace [Target Player ID] with the player ID of the player you wish to teleport
  • Replace [Your Player ID] with your own player ID

So, if your player ID was 171 and the player ID of the player you wanted to teleport was 198, the following command would do the trick:

teleportplayer 198 171

Teleport to Another Player


If you want to teleport to another player, the teleport [Player ID] command is used. To find the player ID of the player you wish to teleport to, type "lpi" (without quotes) into the console. The number you need is underline in the image below:

Then, replace [Player ID] with the player ID of the player you want to teleport to and voila! For example, if the player had an ID of 187, this command would work:

teleport 187

Teleport to Coordinates


Finding a great location and losing it sucks. Thankfully, if you know the coordinates of a location, you can always use the teleport command to return to them. Your current coordinates can be found with the "lp" command, the information you need is highlighted in the below image:

After finding out the coordinates you want to teleport to, use the teleport [X] [Y] [Z] command:

  • Replace [X] with the X (first) coordinate
  • Replace [Y] with the Y (second) coordinate
  • Replace [Z] with the Z (third) coordinate

So, to get to the coordinates that are highlighted in the image above, you'd use the following command:

teleport 1244 61 -619
