Adding a CS2 Config

To add a CS2 config, go to your Steam inventory and find your trade URL. From your trade URL, memorize the stream of numbers. After that, copy the cfg folder from the Steam account you need the config from. To find the cfg folder, go to Program Files (x86), Steam, userdata, 730, and local. Now, replace your cfg folder with the one you copied. Here’s a step-by-step guide that will better help you understand the process.

  • Step 1: Launch Steam, hover the cursor over your Steam ID, and click the “Profile” option.

  • Step 2: Click the “Inventory” option.

  • Step 3: Click the “Trade Offers” button.

  • Step 4: Click the “Who can send me Trade Offers” option.

  • Step 5: Find your Trade URL and copy the stream of numbers from the URL. They will be something like this: 4314522.

  • Step 6: Go to “Program Files (x86).”

  • Step 7: Go to “Steam.”

  • Step 8: Go to “userdata.”

  • Step 9: From the multiple folders inside “userdata,” open the one with the same stream of numbers from your Trade URL.

  • Step 10: Go to “730.”

  • Step 11: Go to “local.”

  • Step 12: The “cfg” folder inside the “local” folder is your CS2 config. To add another config, copy a “cfg” folder and then paste it inside the “local” folder, replacing the original “cfg” folder.
