This is the help page, find an answer for some frequently asked questions.

Why this tool/website?

Why not? A central hub for all competetively used whitelists is a bad idea?

Why aren't the default weapons listed?

Stock weapons can't be blocked, it will show an error line blocking your 'stock weapon' in the console and you'll end up with all the stock weapons as your loadout. However, there is a SourceMod Plugin which allows you to disable stock weapons

How do I get this whitelist to work on my server?

Servers with TFTrue

If your server is running TFTrue you only need the whitelist ID to download and execute the whitelist on your server
rcon tftrue_whitelist_id
This downloads the most up to date version of the whitelist file and executes it. Works on public servers running TFTrue.

Servers without TFTrue

First you need FTP access or some sort of admin panel to upload the whitelist .txt file to the match server into the cfg folder.
To activate the whitelist type the following in your console. (If you have an admin panel you can leave out the 'rcon' part).
rcon mp_tournament_whitelist "cfg/whitelist_filename.txt"
rcon mp_tournament_restart

This will load the whitelist and restart the tournament mode; only after this restart the whitelist will take effect.

My whitelist blocks all hats and/or miscs, but after an update new hats show up, what is wrong?

Your whitelist probably automatically allows all new items that are added to the game; check the 'Share url' in your whitelist or go to and download the newest version of your whitelist file.

I want a certain hat or misc banned but don't understand the whitelist file

Check out here what the content of the whitelist file is.

I am a TF2 league admin and my whitelist/preset is wrong or missing?

Generate the whitelist you'd like to see added or changed, contact me and I'll update/add the whitelist. You might also want to have a look at this open letter I wrote.

I want a custom filename/preset, how do I get one?

You can donate and pick your own filename/share url. Or if you are an admin for a league we could work something out and you might end up in the menu as a default preset.
