This callback is called when a player gives damage to another player.

OnPlayerGiveDamage was added in SA-MP 0.3d This callback was added in SA-MP 0.3d and will not work in earlier versions!

(playerid, damagedid, Float:amount, weaponid, bodypart)
playeridThe ID of the player that gave damage.
damagedidThe ID of the player that received damage.
amountThe amount of health/armour damagedid has lost (combined).
weaponidThe reason that caused the damage.
bodypartThe body part that was hit. (NOTE: This parameter was added in 0.3z. Leave it out if using an older version!)

Return Values:

  • 1 - Callback will not be called in other filterscripts.
  • 0 - Allows this callback to be called in other filterscripts.
  • It is always called first in filterscripts so returning 1 there blocks other filterscripts from seeing it.

Example Usage:

public OnPlayerGiveDamage(playerid, damagedid, Float:amount, weaponid, bodypart)
    new string[128], victim[MAX_PLAYER_NAME], attacker[MAX_PLAYER_NAME];
    new weaponname[24];
    GetPlayerName(playerid, attacker, sizeof (attacker));
    GetPlayerName(damagedid, victim, sizeof (victim));
    GetWeaponName(weaponid, weaponname, sizeof (weaponname));
    format(string, sizeof(string), "%s has made %.0f damage to %s, weapon: %s, bodypart: %d", attacker, amount, victim, weaponname, bodypart);
    SendClientMessageToAll(0xFFFFFFFF, string);
    return 1;



  • Keep in mind this function can be inaccurate in some cases.
  • If you want to prevent certain players from damaging eachother, use SetPlayerTeam.
  • The weaponid will return 37 (flame thrower) from any fire sources (e.g. molotov, 18)
  • The weaponid will return 51 from any weapon that creates an explosion (e.g. RPG, grenade)
  • playerid is the only one who can call the callback.
  • The amount is always the maximum damage the weaponid can do, even when the health left is less than that maximum damage. So when a player has 100.0 health and gets shot with a Desert Eagle which has a damage value of 46.2, it takes 3 shots to kill that player. All 3 shots will show an amount of 46.2, even though when the last shot hits, the player only has 7.6 health left.
