Step 1: "Where do I go to do this?"
If you're familiar with SFM, you should know this. But for newcomers, this is the Motion Editor. An under-used tool that most people use to pose characters.
Step 2: "Where do I get started?"
Well, you should know this. You use a camera. And select the one you want to use.
Step 3: "What should I do next?"
Pretty simple, just select the scene you're using, not the entire video.
Step 4: "What Next?"
Next you'll be creating the shake! Oh, and ignore the colored lines, all you need to do is watch for the white line near the bottom. Make sure that isn't the one that isn't too jagged.
Step 5: "WTF, THIS LOOKS TOO SHAKY! DISLIKE!"
Woah there pal, I was just getting to that. Here's how you fix that:
Conclusion
Hope you know how to do this neat trick. We need more films with Shakyness in the action scenes.

Thanks for taking your time to learn with me! :)

Just a tip for this, I would recommend to select only the "transform" control under the camera you want to add shake to when you add Jitter. The reason for this is because if you just select all the controls for the camera and add Jitter to all of them, this means that things like your FOV, focus distance and aperture are all going to be jittering as well, and if you want a more convincing shaky camera, you only want the position and rotation to be affected by Jitter.
