10 essential CS: GO commands you need to know

10 essential CS: GO commands you need to know 

CS: GO commands allow the player to access the console and make changes to the game. There are several very useful commands that will help a lot in your matches.

None of these commands are cheats and can be used without problems in competitive mode. Changes to FPS, radar and audio could make a big difference in the game.

To activate the console, you must first go to Game Options and then change the option to “Yes” to “Activate Developer Console”. Now, just press the “(quotes) key at any time to display the console and enter commands.

+ cl_show_team_equipment

+ cl_show_team_equipmant

With this command, you can see what equipment the players on your team are using. The information will appear over the head and this also allows you to see them through walls or even in smoke. It’s a really cool command.

net_graph 1

net_graph 1

This is an essential command for most CS: GO players. With this command, you get to know very useful information such as FPS (frames per second) and PING (response between the server and the client in milliseconds).

fps_max 0

This command will allow you to get as much FPS as possible from your PC. When you activate it, you will notice the difference immediately and this will greatly improve the fluidity of the matches.

mm_dedicated_search_maxping 50

This command is used to set the maximum PING to 50. If your internet connection is good, the system will always look for a server near you.

voice_scale 0.3

Who has never played with noisy players who are screaming for everything? This command allows you to lower the volume of the voice to a reasonable level – you will be able to hear your team well and stay focused on the game.

cl_use_opens_buy_menu 0

When using this command, you will disable the E key to open the purchase menu. This is very useful because it will avoid entering the menu when you pick up a weapon from the floor.

cl_radar_always_centered 0

cl_radar_always_centered 0 CS: GO

With this command, your radar will no longer be centralized. So you will always have a much broader view of the entire radar. Check the difference in the image.

cl_radar_scale 0.4

This command increases the scale of your radar. You can zoom out to gain more scale on the map. The ideal scales are between 0.3 and 0.7. Test and find out which scale is best for you.

cl_disablefreezecam 1

This command will disable the freezecam after dying. For many players, this is very annoying. And since nobody likes to lose, any little thing can be very annoying.


With this command, you can skip the introduction videos when you start CS: GO. You could press ESC, but then you don’t have to do anything and save precious seconds.
