The warm up phase in a Counter-Strike game can be quite useful to help you get a grip of your mouse and get your hands ready to aim, but it is mainly used as a buffer for other players to join in. Though the warm up period sounds pretty useful, most players find it to either be a waste of time, or people think the period phase takes too long. If you find the warm up timer to be annoying, we’ll teach you how you can skip it immediately!

How To End Warmup Timer

In order to skip the warmup in CS:GO, you will first need to be in a private server where you can enable sv_cheats. Players often use private servers to play with friends or practice their grenade lineups, so the warmup timer of the game is completely irrelevant. Here are the steps on how you can use the warmup command to end the warm up phase.

  1. Open your console.
  2. Type the command mp_warmup_end 1. 
  3. Enter the command into the console.

That’s really all you have to do to execute warmup end command to end the warm up round! You can adjust the countdown of the mp_warmup_end command by setting a different numeric value at the end of the command. For example, if you would like to end the warm up in 20 seconds, then use the command mp_warmup_end 20.

Keep in mind that if you do not have your developer console enabled, you won’t be able to use the commands. Check out our guide on the console to turn it on!
