In the command console (~), enter 'sv_cheats 1' - a handy cheat code that'll open up unparalleled functionalities in your private lobby.

Setting Server Password and Sharing the IP Address

If you want to customize your server and network settings, these three commands are your friends:

  • sv_password "YourPassword"
  • net_public_adr "Your IP"

Sets a password for your server and the IP that your server should report to the master server, which is the same IP your friends will need to find your lobby.

Finding your IP Address

Once the console window is active, write 'status'. The command window will display a multitude of detailed server information, including your own IP address. 

Now that you know how to enable and use console commands in CS2 and set up your own game server, it's time for you to boot up a lobby, invite a friend and put these codes to the test.

Have fun!
