A Step-by-Step Guide on How to Respawn in CS2

The only way to respawn in CS2 public lobbies is in Deathmatch or waiting for the next round to start in any competitive / ranked game mode. You’ll have to start a private match and enter a few console commands to be able to respawn instantly in the competitive game mode. To help make the whole process easier to understand, here’s a step-by-step guide on how to respawn in CS2.

  • Step 1: Launch CS2 and click the “Settings” icon in the upper left section of the home screen to open the settings menu.

  • Step 2: Once inside the settings menu, click on the “Game” tab and then again the “Game” tab.

  • Step 3: Find the “Enable Developer Console” option and set it to the “Yes” setting.

  • Step 4: From the home screen, click on “Play,” “Practice,” “Competitive,” and then “GO” to start a private match.

  • Step 5: Once inside a custom match, press the “`” or the “~” key under the “Esc” key to open the console.

  • Step 6: Inside the console, type mp_respawn_on_death_ct 1, and press the “Enter” key.

  • Step 7: After that, type mp_respawn_on_death_t 1, press the enter key, and now everyone who dies will instantly get respawned.
