What are some basic knife commands in CS2?

If you're just dipping your toes into the immersive world of CS2, you might be wondering "what are some of the basic knife commands?" Fear not! You're in the right place. I am here to guide you through each one, enabling you to master your game. This is the information you need to secure your place as a force to be reckoned with in the CS2 gaming world. 

The 'use' Command 

First off, the use command. This command allows you to swiftly switch to your knife, which is essential for close combat situations. It may seem simple, but it is the fundamental command you absolutely need to grasp. In the console, the command is "use weapon_knife". This command could come in handy when speed is of the essence. 

The 'give' Command 

Next up is the give command. This command is useful for obtaining a knife in CS2. To get your knife in the middle of the game, the command in the console is "give weapon_knife". Be aware, however, that in some game modes this command might not be available. So, always remember to consider the game mode before executing it. 

The ‘sv_cheats 1’ Command 

The sv_cheats 1 command is another one you need to know. By setting this command in the console, you're enabling all cheat commands, including your knife commands in CS2. But use this wisely, folks. Don't forget that fair play is the spirit of gaming! 

Commands for Specific Knives 

Lastly, there are the commands that allow you to use specific knives in CS2. In the console, these commands come as give weapon_knife_gut”, “give weapon_knife_m9_bayonet”, “give weapon_knife_butterfly, and so on. These specific knife commands let you test out each knife's performance before deciding which one to choose for your gaming experience. Note that these commands only work once the 'sv_cheats 1' is set. 

Mastering these commands is your first big step to becoming an adept player in CS2. Never underestimate the power of your knife or the importance of these basic commands.
