Example 1: This simple example adds a kill command to commit suicide.

function commitSuicide ( sourcePlayer )
	-- kill the player and make him responsible for it
	killPed ( sourcePlayer, sourcePlayer )
-- attach our handler to the "kill" command
addCommandHandler ( "kill", commitSuicide )

Example 2: This example enables 1 hit kills if a player is shot in the head.

function headshotKill ( attacker, attackerweapon, bodypart, loss )
	if bodypart == 9 then --if the bodypart is the head
		--kill the player, emulating the correct killer, weapon and bodypart.
		killPed ( source, attacker, attackerweapon, bodypart )
addEventHandler ( "onPlayerDamage", getRootElement(), headshotKill )
