Install CS:GO server, on your PC.

Recommended Posts

This guide will guide you through how to install a basic CS:GO server.



Atleast 2GB of ram

Atleast 4x 2.4GHz CPU cores.

Any version of Windows.


30/30 Down-/Upload speed.


Step 1.

Download SteamCMD.

Unzip the files to a folder on your desktop.

Open the SteamCMD.exe file.

Wait for it to download all the requirements.

Type this in the correct order;

  1. Login anonymous
  2. force_install_dir ../csgoserver
  3. app_update 740 validate

Wait for it to download the server files, your server will be located on your desktop.

Step 2.

Choose what gamemode you wanna run and at what tickrate, you have to know this before you proceed.

Find your server folder on the desktop, then right click it and create a shortcut.

You can place the shortcut wherever you want.

Right click the shortcut and press properties.

Find the "C:\Users\your name goes here\Desktop\csgoserver" line.

Do not replace but add this to it:


-console -game cstrike +map de_dust +maxplayers 16

Now you have a simple server that you can start and stop by pressing the shortcut.

It won't be able to be opened to public, it's LAN only.

Step 3.

Change gamemode:

Classic Casual;


srcds -game csgo -console -usercon +game_type 0 +game_mode 0 +mapgroup mg_active +map de_dust2

Classic competetive;


srcds -game csgo -console -usercon +game_type 0 +game_mode 1 +mapgroup mg_active +map de_dust2

Arms Race;


srcds -game csgo -console -usercon +game_type 1 +game_mode 0 +mapgroup mg_armsrace +map ar_shoots



srcds -game csgo -console -usercon +game_type 1 +game_mode 1 +mapgroup mg_demolition +map de_lake



srcds -game csgo -console -usercon +game_type 1 +game_mode 2 +mapgroup mg_allclassic +map de_dust

To change the tickrate add the following to one of the above lines:

64 Tick:


-tickrate 64

102.4 Tick:


-tickrate 102.4

128 Tick:


-tickrate 128

Step 4. [Making it public]

First go to: STEAM GLST

At App-ID: 730

Note; Anything that could identify your server.

It will now give you a token which you have to copy.

Add this to your commandline:


-setsteamaccount <TOKEN>

Now it will be public on your IP-address.

However, people won't be able to connect to it unless you allow it through your firewall.

Step 5. [Port forwarding]

Portforward the following ports:


27015 TCP [For RCON]

27015 UDP [Allowing people to connect to GameServer]

Step 6. [Server config]

Make a server.cfg file in your server folder at C:\Users\your name goes here\Desktop\csgoserver\csgo\cfg

Copy this and insert it into your server.cfg file.

// Server name
 hostname "My awesome server | 64 tick | competetive"
