  • Spawn Commands
    • spawnNear <item_name> <count> - example: spawnnear rocket_launcher 5. It should spawn 5 rocket launchers near your player biped. Only the host/dedicated server can spawn items. Spawning items in public games will not work. In order to spawn items you'll need the datum index of the item you're trying to spawn in commands.txt.
    • resetSpawnCommandList - reloads the spawn commands in command.txt.
Commands.txt
Commands.txt is a text file that is created manually by the user and placed at the root directory of their Halo 2 install. A name for the tag and its datum index is placed inside the text file which is then used in game with the spawn command to spawn the object. It should look like this "shotgun,0xECD6327".

Datum Indexes for commands.txt
There are ways to get the datum indexes for items but if you're just interested in spawning items here is an organized list and my own commands.txt file, just place commands.txt in the root of your Halo 2 install.

Also for anyone wondering about Tag Indices or Datum Index
Look into Assembly - The Blam Cache Research tool (ofc :p )
Open up a map (say shared.map)and select any tag , The Information Tab lists the required DatumIndex
