A console command that gives the player (or, rather, spawns beneath its feet) the entity that is given as the commands parameter (typically of a weapon_, an item_ or an item_ammo_ type).


The entities available differs greatly depending on the game engine which the command is used in.

This command is a cheat.

Tip:Using a point_servercommand entity to "give" the player something, is usually more reliable than the point_template ForceSpawn seen in the Newgame_spawn prefab, because the give command is not bound to a physical place, whereas the point_template will dump entities at the original spawnpoint upon a buildcubemaps command.
