How am I supposed to find myself in workspace to equip this tool? My script:
local plr = game.Players.LocalPlayer
local nameofplayer = plr.Character.Name
You don't need to find yourself in Workspace, you're using a LocalScript and already found yourself with your plr Variable. Put this in StarterPlayer > StarterCharacterScripts in a LocalScript.
local me = game.Players.LocalPlayer local character = me.Character local backpack = me:WaitForChild('Backpack') local humanoid = character:WaitForChild("Humanoid") local tool = backpack:FindFirstChild('ClassicSword') if tool then humanoid:EquipTool(tool) end
