Best CS2 (CSGO) Knife Commands

Every Counter-Strike: Global Offensive player dreams of having a sick knife in their disposal, but not everyone can afford to spend real money on buying the knife they want. It is just the reality that players will have to pay Lord Gaben for skins. However, CS2 (CSGO) has allowed us to escape this reality for a little while, as they have provided console commands that will allow you to choose any knife that you want! Continue reading this article to learn all the commands that you can use for knives.

Setting Up the Knife Commands

  1. Create a private custom lobby. This command will only work in custom lobbies as you will need to enable cheats for these commands to work. These commands will work on any map you choose.
  2. Open the console, then type sv_cheats 1. This command will enable cheats so that you can use the knife commands. This means that you cannot use these commands in normal matchmaking. If you want to learn how to open the console, check out our guide on the console.
  3. Type mp_drop_knife_enable 1. This command will allow you to drop your knife to the ground.
  4. Drop your knife, as you will have to drop your normal knife in order to pick up the knives that will spawn using the commands.
  5. Choose a knife that you want from the list of knife commands, then copy and paste the console command into the console. This will give you the knife that you chose and you’ll be able to use and inspect the knife normally!
