FireClient: player argument must be a Player object help?

Here’s my script:


ehuman is a humanoid
my output is: FireClient: player argument must be a Player object and I don’t understand.


You have to use the first argument as the Player instance, not their humanoid.

You can use the following to get the player from that humanoid

local plr = game.Players:GetPlayerFromCharacter(ehumanoid.Parent)

So it would be

local plr = game.Players:GetPlayerFromCharacter(ehumanoid.Parent)

(Meant to reply to the original post.)


Yes, that would work, but I am giving the reason why it isn’t working in general.


A player object is the object inside the Players folder. The Humanoid is an object inside the player’s character object. Since you are trying to fire it to a Humanoid (which is inside a player’s character) this is why you are getting this error. Instead, you must fire it to the player object.

The most easy way to do this is shown below:

local player = game.Players:GetPlayerFromCharacter(ehuman.Parent) -- Getting the player from the character (which the Humanoid is inside)

it does the same thing what should I do

Are you sure you are referencing the ehuman variable in the correct way? If you have it referring to the player’s humanoid the script above should work.
