How to Spawn NPCs with Commands in SCUM

NPC stands for non-player character!

NPC stands for "Non-Player Character", meaning any monster, animal, character, or other moving/living thing in a game. In SCUM, you can spawn NPCs using the #SpawnCharacter command: this guide will show you how.

In order to use the #SpawnCharacter command, you'll first need to know how to run commands, it's quite simple! Commands are sent via the chat, to open the chat, press T. To send a command, type it into the chat and hit enter. All commands start with a hashtag (#). The #SpawnCharacter command works in single player and on servers. If you are on a server, you will need to first be added to the "Admin Access" list in your G-Portal server panel.

The syntax for the #SpawnCharacter command is as follows:

#SpawnCharacter [NPC Code] [Amount]

To make this command spawn an NPC, you will have to:

  • Replace [NPC Code] with your desired NPC's NPC Code (also known as an NPC ID). Find NPC codes on our NPC ID list.
  • If you want to spawn more than one of your specified NPC, replace [Amount] with the number you wish to spawn. If you want to spawn just 1 of your desired NPC, you can leave the amount out of the command.

The NPC ID for a bear is "BP_Bear". We can spawn a bear by factoring this into the #SpawnCharacter command. The following command would spawn one bear in front of your character:

#SpawnCharacter BP_Bear

You could spawn 6 bears by adding the number 6 at the end of the command like so:

#SpawnCharacter BP_Bear 6

And if you managed to survive those bears, you could spawn 6 crows by changing BP_Bear to the NPC ID of a crow, which is BP_Crow:

#SpawnCharacter BP_Crow 6

You can find IDs for all of the animals, monsters and characters in SCUM on our NPC code list.
