Game Server Login Tokens

Unturned dedicated servers can be logged-in to Steam using a Game Server Login Token or GSLT. This provides a few benefits:

  1. If using Server Codes to connect, your code will remain linked to your GSLT between sessions. Otherwise, each time you start the server you will need to send your friends the new code.

  2. Servers without a GSLT are considered “anonymous” and are hidden from the Internet server list.

  3. Steam tracks your Favorites and History lists by address and port, but with a GSLT it can automatically transfer them if the server details change. This should happen within approximately 24 hours. (Verified in issue #3980 thanks to CyberAndrii and joeymisfit, and on AlliedModders.)

Creating GSLTs

You can manually create GSLTs while logged in with your Steam account here:

Use Unturned’s app ID 304930, and a memo to remind you which server the token is for.

Unturned Configuration

The GSLT can be set in one of two places depending on your preference:

  • With the Login_Token property in each server’s Config.json file under the Browser section.


  • Using the GSLT command during startup. This can be specified in the Commands.dat file or on the command-line.

Automating GSLTs

Valve provides an IGameServersService web API for managing GSLTs. Consult their documentation here:
