Best CS2 (CSGO) SV_Cheats Commands

What Are CS2 (CSGO) SV Cheats Commands?

While they are in the game for use by developers such as Valve or CS2 (CSGO) map creators, anyone can use these as long as they enable the Developer Console first and then turn on the SV Cheats. However, these are not illegal cheats and hacks as they cannot be used on official servers.

Most players will find only a handful of these to be useful in terms of experimenting and exploring CS2 (CSGO) maps fully. These are especially useful when attempting to learn new maps that enter the rotation, give yourself weapons to test, and learn more in-depth about the game.

There are a lot of different SV_Cheats 1 commands that can be used such as god mode, infinite ammo, noclip, or third person, and are completely different from CS2 (CSGO) steam launch options.


Whether starting to play more competitively or working on training, using SV_Cheat 1 Commands gives you the edge that's needed to see how you're playing properly.

How to use SV Cheats Console Commands in Counter-Strike?

To use SV_Cheats 1 you do need to enable the Developer Console first. If you already have this enabled then just open the console with the tilde button(~) and type “sv_cheats 1” to enable them.


After the SV_Cheat 1 Command has been activated, you'll need to open the Developer Console again to enter a line of code. This means pressing the tilde button(~ or sometimes `) to open the Developer Console box. After entering the code you press Enter like with normal console commands. Here is a full guide if you don't have the Developer Console enabled already:

  1. Launch Counter-Strike: Global Offensive from Steam
  2. Go to Options
  3. Click on Game Settings
  4. Find the “Enable Developer Console” option
  5. Change it to Yes (if it already says “Yes” then the console is already enabled
  6. Press the tilde (~) buttonto open the console
  7. Type “sv_cheats 1” to turn the option to use them on

Without first entering the sv_cheats 1 command, you will be unable to use the console commands. This is the command line that activates the Developer Tools in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive so you could try to input some of the listed console commands, but they won't work yet.

How to turn CS2 (CSGO) SV Cheats off?

To turn this mode off all you need to type a console command into the Developer Console is this: sv_cheats 0


This is the default for CS2 (CSGO) so adding that code into the Developer Console will change your game back to the normal gameplay mode.

Other Useful CS2 (CSGO) SV Cheats Commands

There are many other SV Cheats_1 Commands other than the ones listed above. We have some other ones listed for you here which are the most useful ones for general use in CS2 (CSGO). However, these are a bit more complex, so they aren't used as often except for specific circumstances. This handful of commands isn't used often but is still important to know.

Can You Get Banned For Using Sv_Cheats?

You won't get banned for using Sv Cheats. While these are called “cheat commands”, they are nothing of the sort.


Sv_cheats commands are developer tools that Valve and map creators use for editing or working on the game. You can only enable cheats via these commands in single-player games and on a private server (like CS2 (CSGO) Surfing ones). They are a good way to legally explore the maps without getting VAC banned which is something that players would need to do otherwise.
