How to Fast Forward CS2 Demo?

One of the best ways to improve at CS2 is by watching your gameplay and finding what mistakes you made so you don’t make them in future CS2 matches. However, watching the entire Demo of your match isn’t necessary. Instead, you need to fast-forward the Demo to reach the point you want to watch. To help you do that, here is a complete guide explaining how to fast forward Demo in CS2.

  • Step 1: Launch CS2 and click on the “TV” icon in the upper left corner of the home screen to open the “Watch” Section.

  • Step 2: Click the “Your Matches” or the “Downloaded” tab, depending on what match you wish to see.

  • Step 3: Select the match you want to watch from the list of options on the left side of the screen.

  • Step 4: Select the “Watch” icon from the bottom right portion of the screen.

Note: If a “Download” icon appears in the lower right corner instead, click on it, and after a while, the “Watch” icon will appear.

  • Step 5: Press the “Shift” key plus the “F2” key, and the Demo UI will appear on your screen.

  • Step 6: Select the point on the Demo UI’s timeline you wish to fast-forward to, and the “Demo/Replay” will start playing from there.

  • Step 7: You can also use the “+15s” button, the 2x, 4x, or 8x buttons, or the fast-forward buttons shaped like arrows pointing toward the right with a vertical line at the tip.
