Tonight there was a hacker on my server with the name of “-” (without quotes). He was spawning 100’s of C4 and blowing everything up.
I tried doing ban “-” and banid <steamid> but both did not work.
I pressed Shift+Tab and opened up the player list to find a profile with an empty name.
I was able to find his SteamID64 using 2 ways:
- Using a site like http://steamidconverter.com/ and entering his profile link.
- Appending ?xml=1 to his profile url (e.g. steamcommunity.com/id/<profileid>/?xml=1)
Then I did ban “<steamid64>” along with kick “<steamid64>” and it worked.
Note that I used “ban” not “banid” and the common STEAM_X:X:XXXXXX format does not currently work here.
I hope this helps anyone trying to ban someone by name but cannot do so.
