GMOD act command not working

I saw plenty of people having trouble using the GMod act command and they reported that these commands are not working for them.

You won’t believe that 2 days before writing this article my act commands for bind dance were also not working.

I did a lot of research and finally found a few solutions that really work.

  1. The first thing you need to assure is that Garry’s mod developer console is enabled.


  2. Restart the game and PC as well and check if it’s working now.


  3. Try running other dance commands like act muscle or act robot to assure if the problem is with any specific command or with the whole command.


  4. Probably there is a problem with Garry’s mod server or that specific command has been disabled.

If you have any further issues let me know in the comment box.

You can use any emote from the above list of Gmod act commands. Make sure the dev console is enabled and simply type the command act [Emote name]

Where is the GMOD dance from? GMOD Origin

Gary mod game seems to be friendly and ok for the kids but if I talk about the server, the community has lots of typical and weird people.

As a single-player it’s fine but there is lots of toxicity in multi-players.

How do you become a God in GMOD?

Once your developer console is turned on in Garry’s mod you can easily enable GOD mode in GMOD.
Type the command sv_cheats 1 and then hit enter.
Now type GOD to enable GOD mode.



There are multiple GMOD act commands for dance like robots and muscles. You must try all the emotes one by one and use them at the proper time.

As I have seen many players wonder how to wave or salute when they get a wave from other players.
