In case you are wondering why you are not able to bind and use noclip in Counter-Strike 2, don’t worry! After going through the guide, you’ll be able to use noclip in CS2 too!

Counter-Strike 2 is the much-anticipated update of the fan-favorite CS: GO franchise that is currently the most played game based on daily player count.

The game has seen major updates using the Source 2 engine. And as a result, the game has a variety of fresh features that surpass CS:GO. However, many old console commands are still viable in CS2, and the ‘noclip’ command is one of them.

‘noclip’ is a well-known CS:GO console command that allows the player to fly throughout the map. Although the command is not usable during main gameplay, it is one of the most useful in practice mode. In case you are coming from VALORANT and are not that familiar with CS:GO commands, ‘noclip’ bind works just as the ghost option works in VALORANT.

Players used to bind ‘noclip’ in CS:GO practice mode to make faster movements through the map while learning the game. This bind still works in CS 2, but there’s a catch.

How to Bind Noclip or Use Ghost Mode

To use noclip bind in CS2 practice mode, you must activate sv_cheats true / sv_cheats 1 in the console command beforehand. Don’t worry, as this is not actually a cheat. This command will just allow you to bypass some limitations in practice mode. Moreover, Valve kept this intentionally so that players can use it.

Here is a step-by-step guide on how to bind and use the ‘noclip’ console command in CS 2:

  • First, you have to enable the console in CS2. To do this, go to the in-game settings and select the GAME tab. From the menu, toggle Enable Developer Console (~), drop down, and choose Yes. You can now access the console in the game by pressing the ~ button on your keyboard.

  • Now go to the PLAY tab. Choose PRACTICE and select your desired map from the menu. For example, we are choosing Inferno. After that, you are set to press GO, and the game will launch in the practice server.
    Tips: You can toggle the settings on for Grenade Camera, Infinite ammo, and Infinite warmup from the left side menu for extra accessibility in the practice session.
    menu 2
  • After the game is fully loaded and you choose a side, press ~ on your keyboard. This will bring up the console for CS2.
  • After that, you must type sv_cheats true. This command will allow the players to use the next command.
  • Now type bind “your desired button” noclip in the console and press ENTER. For example, “bind X noclip” will allow you to toggle the noclip command whenever you press X on your keyboard. You can set any button to your liking.
  • If you follow every step properly, you are good to go and can fly through the map using the ‘noclip’ bind without any restrictions.
