Freecam 0 = stopping them from browsing the battlefield and
automatically showing the killer.

Serverhitindication is indeed the little cross around the crosshair that
shows when you hit. If your server indeed has those settings; it will
show the killer.

game.serverFreeCamera 0   (stops the guys from browsing the whole

game.setServerHitIndication 0 (not possitive but i think this will stop
giveaway shooter. My server doesnt show who killed you)
