Note:Command parameters are described inside the < and > characters.

Syntax: play <sound_name>

Play a sound where "sound_name" is the specified sound with the path from <sound/>.

Example: play "common/stuck1.wav" This will play the sound "stuck1.wav" in the folder "sound/common/".

Note:If you omit the file extension, it will also works if the file is a .wav sound.

Warning: If you trigger this command from a map in Hammer editor, never try to pass string parameters to a script function with this input. It will corrupt the VMF structure because of the nested quotation marks, which then must be removed manually with a text editor in order to recover your map.
