Info player start.png

info_player_start is a point entity available in all Source games.

Entity Description

It indicates the position and facing direction at which the player will spawn. If there isn't at least one spawn entity, most mods will usually spawn the player at 0, 0, 0.

Note.png Note: While normally a problem, any number of info_player_start entities can be placed in a map when working in cordoned areas (see Localized starting points for more information).



Pitch Yaw Roll (Y Z X) (angles) <angle>
This entity's orientation in the world. Pitch is rotation around the Y axis, yaw is the rotation around the Z axis, roll is the rotation around the X axis.
Note.png Note: rotating info_player_start will make player spawn looking into that direction. Good for making maps where player needs to be looking at something on spawn


  • Master (Has priority if multiple info_player_start entities exist)
