Best Radio Commands CS:GO
Good aim is essential in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, but communication is also incredibly crucial for teams to win games. However, many players in CS:GO don’t like using their microphones for multiple reasons, and others are too lazy to type out callouts and comms. That is why Valve has provided players with a fully functional radio system that can give brief, yet useful callouts and actions quickly and easily. Continue reading to find out the best radio commands CS:GO has to offer!
What are Radio Commands?
Radio commands provide a way of communicating numerous callouts, requests, and responses that are frequently used by CS:GO players. These commands include examples such as Roger, Stick Together, Enemy Spotted, etc. These radio commands will both send a message and play an audio file of the in-game character’s speech at the same time.
Teammates will be able to see and hear it, but enemy players won’t. Actions such as throwing grenades will automatically play radio commands, but players can also choose to play different radio commands manually, which can help them quickly communicate with their teammates.

How Important Are Radio Commands?
Though radio commands provide a method of quick communication, they aren’t incredibly important. Players can generally use their microphones and team chat to communicate in a more detailed manner since radio commands will only play words or short phrases.
However, the small majority of players that refuse to use microphones and type in chat may benefit from radio commands. That concludes it for the best radio commands in CS:GO. To learn more about commands, check out our article on the most useful CS:GO commands list!
