Insurgency Sandstorm Server Admin Guide



Prerequisites [Windows only]

Before proceeding with your server installation, make sure you have installed the following prerequisites.


Like other games published on Steam, Insurgency: Sandstorm’s server files are published through a command-line tool known as SteamCMD. This GUI-less Steam client allows you to install and update the server files easily.

You can download SteamCMD from the following links:

If you’re using Windows, unzip SteamCMD to a known folder location or create a new one to use for the installation. You will frequently be navigating back to this location during the installation process.

Most commands through SteamCMD require knowledge of the app ID. For Insurgency: Sandstorm, the app ID is 581330.

For a basic server setup, please follow the instructions below:

1) Open SteamCMD and wait for it to update. This can take a few minutes.
2) Type login anonymous and hit Enter. This will log you in anonymously, allowing you to download most game servers.
3) Type app_update 581330 validate and hit Enter. This will install and validate the Insurgency: Sandstorm dedicated server.
4) Type quit and hit Enter once you have received a message stating that the app was fully installed.

You will now be able to find your dedicated server in the common subfolder located within the Steamapps folder. The full path should look like this: SteamCMD\steamapps\common. You can create a shortcut to this folder for ease of access in the future.

Please note that the root directory for SteamCMD will vary based on what you have named it.

You can find more information about SteamCMD and how to use it here.


Once SteamCMD is installed, you will need to create a script to launch the server with your desired options and settings. On Windows, this is a batch file; on Linux, this is a shell script.

For Windows:

1) Create a new text document in the sandstorm_server directory.
2) Open it and press CTRL + Shift + S. A window should appear and ask you to save the file.
3) Name the file start.bat and hit Enter.

For Linux:

1) Run cd .steam/steamapps/common/sandstorm_server to navigate to the newly created Server directory.
2) Run touch and hit Enter.

A new file with the specified name will be created in the specified location. You will need to edit this file with the specific command line for your operating system to launch the server.

The command line should include the starting map, the scenario, and any other launch parameters. For example:

Command Line
Windows InsurgencyServer.exe Oilfield?Scenario=Scenario_Refinery_Push_Security?MaxPlayers=28 -Port=27102 -QueryPort=27131 -log -hostname=”My Server”
Linux Insurgency/Binaries/Linux/InsurgencyServer-Linux-Shipping Oilfield?Scenario=Scenario_Refinery_Push_Security?MaxPlayers=28 -Port=27102 -QueryPort=27131 -log -hostname=”My Server”

In this example, the server will be started on Refinery (Oilfield) Push Security, hosted on port 27102 with a maximum of 28 players. If there is a typo in the map or scenario name, the server will default to Farmhouse. If this happens, verify that you spelled everything correctly in the command line.

Port Forwarding

For your server to show up on the server browser, you will have to forward both TCP and UDP. You can find tutorials on port forwarding on a lot of websites. We suggest, which offers tutorials for most router manufacturers.

You will need to put the ports that you have forwarded in the script that you created earlier. For example, if you forwarded ports 27102 and 27131, your command line should look like this:

Command Line
Windows InsurgencyServer.exe Oilfield?Scenario=Scenario_Refinery_Push_Security?MaxPlayers=28 -Port=27102 -QueryPort=27131 -log -hostname=”My Server”
Linux Insurgency/Binaries/Linux/InsurgencyServer-Linux-Shipping Oilfield?Scenario=Scenario_Refinery_Push_Security?MaxPlayers=28 -Port=27102 -QueryPort=27131 -log -hostname=”My Server”


Now that you have forwarded your ports, you will need to make sure that your Firewall allows the connection to be made for your server to show up in the server browser.

For Windows:

1) Press Windows + R. This will open the Run window.
2) Paste the following string: wf.msc and hit Enter.
3) Click Inbound Rules on the left panel, then click New Rule on the right panel.
4) Select Port and hit Next.
5) Select TCP and make sure you have Specific local ports selected, then put the ports you have forwarded into the box separated by a comma (for us, this is 27102 for our game port and 27131 for our query port).
6) Select Allow the connection and hit Next.
7) Make sure that all of the boxes are checked and hit Next.
8) Name the rule: Insurgency Server and hit Finish.

Repeat steps 3 to 8, but instead of allowing TCP at rule 5, you will need to allow UDP. In total, you should have two new rules in the Inbound Rules section.

You can edit your rules by going back to the Inbound Rules tab, right-clicking the rules you created, and then clicking Properties.

For Linux:

It’s a good idea to reference your distribution’s documentation to facilitate the configuration of the Firewall.

Once you’ve added your Inbound Rules to the Firewall, you can now launch your server with the batch/shell script file we created earlier in the Launching section. Please note that the server will be running a default configuration. The default configuration cycles through all Versus PVP scenarios available and follows the Official game rules.

If you wish to modify the server’s configuration, you can find the information you need within the following sections of this guide.


Command Line Arguments

Most server configuration is performed through .INI files and launch parameters. These files can be edited with any text editor such as Notepad, Notepad++, Sublime Text, and VSCode.

The configuration files can be found in the following directories (relative to the server’s installation directory):

For WindowsInsurgency\Saved\Config\WindowsServer
For LinuxInsurgency/Saved/Config/LinuxServer

If the directory does not already exist, you will need to create one manually. You will also need to create new .INI files:

For Windows:

1) Create a new folder named WindowsServer inside of the Config directory found here: Insurgency\Saved\Config.
2) Create a new text document in the WindowsServer folder.
3) Open it and press CTRL + Shift + S. A window should appear and ask you to save the file.
4) Name the file Engine.ini and hit Enter.
5) Open the new text document again and press CTRL + Shift + S.
6) Name the file Game.ini and hit Enter.

For Linux:

1) Type mkdir -p Insurgency/Saved/Config/LinuxServer. This will create a new LinuxServer directory if it is missing.
2) Type cd Insurgency/Saved/Config/LinuxServer to navigate to the newly created LinuxServer directory.
3) Type touch Engine.ini and hit Enter.
4) Type touch Game.ini and hit Enter.

Two new INI files with the specified names will be created in the same location.

-log Enables log window.
-hostname="My Server" Set the server’s name as it appears on the server browser (replacing My Server with the name of your choice).
-EnableCheats Enable cheats for testing.
-Port=xxxx The UDP port that game connections are made to (replace XXXX with port number).
-QueryPort=xxxx The port that Steam runs server queries on (replace XXXX with port number).

Travel Parameters

Travel parameters are placed at the end of the map name in the command line, following it with a question mark (?) and then the setting variable and its value. In the above example, MaxPlayers is the travel parameter.

Password Sets a password for the server.
MaxPlayers Sets the maximum number of players that can join the server. On coop servers, this is the number of human players.

Admin List

The game has a built-in admin menu that provides basic functionality such as kicking, banning, and changing the level. To add admins, you will need to know their 64-bit Steam ID (aka steamID64). You can find this by using an online converter such as STEAMID I/O.

You will then need to create a file named Admins.txt inside the following directory: Insurgency/Config/Server.

For Windows:

1) Create a new folder named Config inside the Insurgency folder found in the root directory.
2) Create a new folder named server inside the newly created Config folder. Your path should now look like this: Insurgency/Config/Server.
3) Create a new text document in the Server folder named Admins.txt.

For Linux:

1) Run mkdir -p Insurgency/Config/Server. This will create the new Server directory.
2) Run cd Insurgency/Config/Server to navigate to the newly created Server directory.
3) Run touch Admins.txt

You can also override the file by specifying a command-line switch. For example, -AdminList=OtherAdminList would make the server read from OtherAdminList.txt instead.

For each admin you want to add, you will need to put their steamID64 on a new line inside the Admins.txt file. You can do this for as many admins as you would like to add. Adding new admins will require a server restart or level change for any changes to be reflected in-game. When a player with admin privileges connects to the server, they will be able to open the admin menu bound to the Keypad Subtract button by default and can be re-bound in the key bindings menu.

Message of the Day

The server can be configured with a MotD file to announce a message of the day during the loading screen. By default, this file must be placed in
Insurgency/Config/Server/Motd.txt. This can be defined on the command line using the -motd parameter. If you wanted it to read MyOtherMOTD, you would specify -motd=MyOtherMOTD.txt

If this file does not exist, you will need to create it.

For Windows:

  1. Create a new text document in the Server folder named Motd.txt.

For Linux:

  1. Run cd Insurgency/Config/Server to navigate to the Server directory.
  2. Run touch Motd.txt to create the text file.

The file does not allow for any formatting and will only display text.

Remote Access (Rcon)

Rcon can be enabled to provide remote access to the server for administrative tasks that don’t require you to join the server. This is implemented using the Source Engine Rcon Protocol, which has clients available for it, such as mcrcon and Simple SourceDS RCON.

Enabling Access

Rcon can be enabled by modifying the Game.ini file or through the server’s command line. To enable it via the command line, you can provide the following arguments:

-Rcon -RconPassword=password -RconListenPort=27015

The values for the password and port arguments can be replaced with ones of your preference.

Through Game.ini, you can add the following options:


The following additional config variables are also available:

bUseBroadcastAddress True If enabled, then the rcon socket will listen on all available network devices.
ListenAddressOverride If bUseBroadcastAddress is False, this is the network IP the rcon socket is bound to.
bAllowConsoleCommands True When enabled, any unknown rcon commands will be interpreted as console commands.
MaxPasswordAttempts 3 The maximum number of failed authentication attempts before the IP address is temporarily banned.
IncorrectPasswordBanTime 30 The amount of time (in minutes) a client is banned from attempting to connect to rcon if they’ve reached their maximum number of attempts.


You can get a list of commands at any time by typing help into the console. This will show a summary of all available commands, their usage, and a description of the command’s function.

The table below shows the available commands. Mandatory parameters are shown surrounded by “<” and “>“, while optional parameters are surrounded with “[” and “]”. A “net ID” typically refers to a user’s Steam ID.

help Displays a list of commands.
listplayers Lists players currently connected to the server.
kick <id/netid/name> [reason] Kicks a player from the server.
ban <id/netid/name> [duration in minutes] [reason] Bans a player from the server.
banid [duration in minutes] [reason] Bans a player (by net ID) from the server. Does not require the player to be on the server.
permban <id/netid/name> [reason] Permanently bans a player from the server.
unban Lifts a ban for a user.
listbans Shows the ban list for the server.
say Shows a message to all players in the chatbox.
restartround [0 = no team switch, 1 = swap teams] Restarts the current round.
maps [level filter] Lists available maps.
scenarios [level filter] Lists available scenarios.
travelscenario Change level to given scenario.
travel Transitions the server to a different level.
gamemodeproperty [new value] Gets or sets a gamemode property for the length of the scenario.
listgamemodeproperties [property filter] Lists all properties available for the currently loaded gamemode.

By default, any unknown commands will be executed as console commands.

Enabling Stats

Any Insurgency: Sandstorm community server can host a stats-enabled game. Enabling stats on your server also enables experience gain while playing on the server. The only requirement is that you must use a Steam GSLT, and you must not have a server password.

1. Visit the GameStats Token Generator and authenticate through your Stream profile.



2. Click on “Generate Token” which will create you a GameStats token.


Your token will look something like this:


Simply add the generated token to your launch parameters, and stats will be enabled! Make sure not to share your GameStats token with a third party. Server admins found to be abusing the system will have their tokens revoked, and your account will be investigated. If you suspect your GameStats token has been shared, please generate a new token.

GSLT Authentication

For your server to authenticate with the stats server, you must authenticate your server through Steam GSLT (Game Server Login Token). GSLTs can be obtained from Steam’s Game Server Account Management page. As this page states, there are various criteria your Steam account needs to meet to generate a token. This includes ownership of the gamelinking your Steam account with a phone number, and having your account in good standing.

To generate a token for Insurgency: Sandstorm, enter the App ID: 581320. The memo field can be set to anything, so use it to help you remember which token you are assigning to each of your servers. You will need a unique token for each server you are hosting.

To start your server with GSLT authentication, add -GSLTToken=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx to the server’s command line where xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx is the token displayed on the Steam Game Server Account page.

Stats Opt-in

By default, the game servers will not attempt to report to the stats system. Following the GSLT login steps above, adding -GameStats to your server’s command line will enable the opt-in to the system.

Optional: Official Rules

The game ships with a ruleset which are considered official rules; this locks down the options you can change on your dedicated server. If you are running a mostly vanilla server, you may consider opting into this ruleset for your server to appear under the “official rules” filter. To opt-in, add -ruleset=OfficialRules to your server’s command line.

Map Cycle

By default, a server will cycle through all Versus PVP scenarios available.

The server can be configured with a map cycle file that contains a list of scenarios separated by newlines. By default, this file must be placed in Insurgency/Config/Server/MapCycle.txt. This can be defined on the command line using the -MapCycle parameter. So if you wanted it to read MyOtherMapCycle.txt, you would specify -MapCycle=MyOtherMapCycle.

If this file does not exist, you will need to create it.

For Windows:

1) Create a new text document in the Server folder named MapCycle.txt.

For Linux:

1) Run cd Insurgency/Config/Server to navigate to the Server directory.
2) Run touch MapCycle.txt to create the text file.

For example, a Skirmish only server’s MapCycle.txt should look like the following:


Additionally, you may define an entry with an override game mode as some game modes can share scenarios. For example, to have Hardcore Checkpoint Security on Hideout, you would enter the following:


Scenario List

For Checkpoint scenarios, “Insurgents” and “Security” refer to the faction you play as. For Push, the faction names represent the team you attack as. Firefight for most maps will contain a West and an East layout.

Lighting Scenarios

In addition to day scenarios, night scenarios are also available. This is controlled through the travel parameter ?Lighting=, valid values are Night or Day.

For the map cycle, you control this through a Lighting parameter, similar to the Mode parameter. You should make sure that this parameter is specified for the correct voting image to show. For example:


This will set the map cycle entry to use Hideout (Town) at Night on the Checkpoint Security scenario. You can mix Day and Night scenarios in the same map cycle by explicitly defining the Lighting parameter for both Day and Night, for example:


This will allow you to play Hideout Checkpoint Security on both Day and Night which will show the appropriate images on the voting screen.


Mods are delivered using To get started, you will need a account. Once you have signed in, click your username at the top right, and click API Access from the left navigation.

OAuth management page

Under OAuth 2 Management, under Generate Access Token, enter a name to give your token and give it read access (write access is not needed) and click Create Token.

Generated token

You will then be presented with your auth token; you may copy this to your clipboard. In your server’s Engine.ini, you will enter the following to authenticate your server with the token (replace “TOKEN HERE” with what you just copied):

AccessToken=TOKEN HERE

Now you have entered your authentication token and your server is ready to start accepting mods. Your server must include -Mods on the command line for this to function.

To specify a list of mods your server is running, you can add a text file in the following directory Insurgency/Config/Server/ specifying each mod ID line by line. If this file does not exist, you will need to create it.

For Windows:

1) Create a new text document in the Server folder named Mods.txt.

For Linux:

1) Run cd Insurgency/Config/Server to navigate to the Server directory.
2) Run touch Mods.txt to create the text file.

You can also override the text file read by specifying -ModList=MyCustomModList.txt on the command line.

If you wish to specify a list of mods on the command line, you may do this through specifying -CmdModList="mod1,mod2,mod3" where mod1,mod2,mod3 is a comma-separated list of mod IDs.

You may specify a map to travel to after mods are downloaded by specifying the ModDownloadTravelTo= command-line argument, followed by the travel URL argument to change to.

An excellent resource for newcomers is the community guides available on


Mutators (formerly rulesets) are packaged gameplay configuration assets which the game ships with. You may use these on your own servers by specifying -mutators=MutatorName on the server command line where “MutatorName” is from the following options:
