UserHasBadgeAsync checks whether a player owns a badge given the Player's Player/UserId|UserId and the badge’s id. Such a query can only be made under the following conditions:

  • This function must be called from the server, i.e. in a Script or ModuleScript eventually required by a Script.
  • The player in question must be present in the server.

Any badge for any game can be queried, no matter who created the badge or which game it is used for. There are a number of applications of UserHasBadge:

  • A restricted door that can only be opened by players who own a badge (see code sample)
  • A basic way of determining if a player has played another game
  • Very simple progress saving. However, it is recommended developers use DataStoreService for saving as it is more scale-able and robust (remember - players can delete their own badges).

Creating a Badge Restricted Door

This code sample creates a restricted door in the Workspace that can only be used by players who own the badge associated with BADGE_ID.

    local Players = game:GetService("Players")
    local BadgeService = game:GetService("BadgeService")
    local BADGE_ID = 1 -- change this
    -- create a door part
    local door = Instance.new("Part")
    door.Anchored = true 
    door.Size = Vector3.new(7, 10, 1)
    door.Position = Vector3.new(0, 5, 0)
    door.Parent = game.Workspace
    local debounce = false 
local function hit()
    	if not debounce then
    		debounce = true
    		if hit then
    			local player = Players:GetPlayerFromCharacter(hit.Parent)
    			-- if player exists and owns the badge
    			if player and BadgeService:UserHasBadgeAsync(player.UserId, BADGE_ID) then
    				-- open the door
    				door.Transparency = 0.5
    				door.CanCollide = false 
    				-- wait
    				-- close the door
    				door.Transparency = 0
    				door.CanCollide = true
    		-- cooldown
    		debounce = false
