  3. Click on the Steam button, and a menu will pop up

  5. Finally, relaunch Steam

Try Opening Steam On Your Browser

If you are getting the “Inventory is not available at this time” error when opening your inventory in your Steam client, one way to find a way around it is to open Steam on your web browser instead.

By using a different platform to open your Steam inventory, you might get into Steam servers from a slightly different connection that can bypass the error. It’s definitely worth a try!

Check Steam’s Status Page

Since opening your CS2 (CSGO) inventory requires a connection to the Steam and CS2 (CSGO) network, sometimes, the error may come from Steam’s side instead of yours. If Steam and CS2 (CSGO) servers are experiencing issues, then there’s, unfortunately, nothing you can do on your part.

To check if Steam servers are healthy and running, you can head over to this Steam status page to check all the information surrounding Steam and CS2 (CSGO) servers.

Steam Status Servers

If the servers are not experiencing any issues while you are checking the website, the issue should be on your end.

Temporarily Change Your Custom Steam URL

The following solution may sound odd, but it has fixed the error for many Steam users. For this method, you want to temporarily change your custom Steam profile URL and then change it back. Do not mix your custom Steam URL with your Steam Trade Link!

Steam Profile

To change your custom URL, follow the steps below:

  1. Open your Steam client, and hover over your Steam username

  2. Then, click on Profile

  3. Once you are on your Steam Profile, go to Edit Profile

  4. Under About, you will see your Custom URL

  5. You’re going to change it temporarily, so just add a few random letters to the end of your URL

  6. Then, save your changes by scrolling all the way down

  7. Check to see if your inventory can load properly now

  8. Finally, go back to change your Custom URL back to what it initially was
