The !nuke command is a powerful moderation tool in the StreamElements chatbot that allows moderators to quickly remove multiple messages containing specific content from the chat. It can perform timeouts, bans, or message deletions based on a specified string or regular expression.


!nuke <lookback_time> <action> <match_string>


  • <lookback_time>: The time window (in seconds) to search for matching messages.
  • <action>: The moderation action to perform. Can be:
    • A number (for timeout duration in seconds)
    • ban (to ban users)
    • delete (to delete messages)
  • <match_string>: The text to search for in messages. For regex patterns, wrap in slashes (e.g., /pattern/).


  1. Timeout users for 60 seconds who sent messages containing "spam" in the last 2 minutes:
!nuke 120 60 spam
  1. Ban users who sent messages matching the regex pattern "test\d+" in the last 5 minutes:
!nuke 300 ban /test\d+/
  1. Delete all messages containing "giveaway" from the last 30 seconds:
!nuke 30 delete giveaway


The !nuke command is available by default to moderators and the broadcaster. To change permissions, modify the command settings in your StreamElements dashboard.


There are no default aliases for the !nuke command. However, you can create custom aliases in your StreamElements dashboard if desired.
