gamemode <gameMode: int> [player: target]
- mode (BE: gameMode: GameMode or gameMode: int)
- Must be one of:
- "hardcore" is not a valid option for the mode argument, as it is technically not a game mode.
- player (BE: player: target) (optional)
- If specified, must be either a player's username or a target selector. If unspecified, defaults to the player using the command. When used in a command block, player is not optional.
