Commands are words or phrases that when said inside the client, will perform a specific action. Commands are shortcuts typed on the keyboard rather than manually clicking to do an often tedious task.

To say a command, players log into the client (as they can't be inputted on the website) and enter a room. In the chat bar, they type a colon (:), followed by the command word and press Enter or Say. Commands with parameters are spaced before being entered. Typed-out commands will appear on-screen only if it has been misspelled; otherwise the action will already be done. However, not all commands require a colon, as shown below.

Most commands in Habbo are used for moderation, but there are a few for normal players. There are also specific commands which can only be done in Habbo Retros and not actually in Habbo.

List of commands[edit | edit source]

To access these commands manually, without typing, click on your Habbo. A menu should pop-up over your head. After, click 'actions' or 'signs' to access some of the commands below.
After clicking on yourself this should pop-up.
Non-Habbo Club actions.
All actions (HC needed)
Signs Section (0 Needs to be manually typed)
Note: Please feel free to add any missed commands.

  • A "†" indicates that the command cannot be accessed 'manually' (See Above).
  • A "*" means that bots can also use the commands.

External_Texts from the text vars[edit | edit source]

In September 2012, special codes were found in the External_Texts from the habbo text vars. These codes when said inside the client triggers the message it was originally intended to be used for. Although Habbo has patched the codes so you cannot use them anymore, here are some of these codes you could have used (note that %username% is replaced with whoever is viewing its habbo name):

  • ${landing.view.generic.welcome.title} - When this code is said it triggers a message that shows anyone in the room viewing it their own username in a sentence. That sentence is: Hiya, %Username%!
  • ${landing.view.generic.welcome.content} - When this code is said it triggers a message that shows any user viewing it at the time their last login time. It is shown as this: Your last login was %lastlogin%. We missed you :)
  • ${achievements.categories.score} - When this code is said it triggers a message that shows any user viewing it their achievement score. It is shown as this: Achievement score: %score%
