This function allows you to set a ped's aim target to a specific point. If a ped is within a certain range defined by getPedTargetStart and getPedTargetEnd he will be targeted and shot.

Note: If you wish to make a ped shoot you must use this in conjunction with an equipped weapon and setPedControlState.


bool setPedAimTarget ( ped thePed, float x, float y, float z )

Required Arguments

  • thePed: The ped whose target you want to set. Only peds and remote players will work; this function has no effect on the local player.
  • x: The x coordinate of the aim target point.
  • y: The y coordinate of the aim target point.
  • z: The z coordinate of the aim target point.


Returns true if the function was successful, false otherwise.


function createPedAndsetHisAimTarget ()
        local ped = createPed (0, 0, 0, 5 ) -- create a ped, who looks like cj, in the middle of the map
        setPedAimTarget ( ped, 10, 10, 5 ) -- set the ped's target to a point in North-East
