How to Show FPS in CS2

Showcasing your FPS in CS2 is a valuable technique for gamers who want to stay updated on their game's performance.

Counter-Strike 2 (CS2) is a popular first-person shooter game that requires players to have good reflexes and aim. For many gamers, knowing the frame rate per second (FPS) of their game is essential for a smooth and enjoyable gaming experience. If you're playing CS2 and want to keep an eye on your FPS, here's a step-by-step guide on how to show FPS in CS2.

 Launch CS2


To begin, open CS2 on your computer. Ensure that the game is running smoothly and that you're in-game or at the main menu before moving on to the next steps.

Open Console

The console is a powerful tool in CS2 that allows you to enter various commands and configurations. To access it, press the tilde key (~) on your keyboard. The tilde key is usually located at the upper left corner, just below the Esc key. Pressing the tilde key will open the console window.

Enable Developer Console

If you haven't enabled the developer console in CS2, you'll need to do that before continuing. To enable the developer console, navigate to the game's settings by clicking on the gear icon in the main menu. Then, select the "Game Settings" option. From there, navigate to the "Keyboard/Mouse" tab and click on the "Advanced" button. Locate the option that says "Enable Developer Console (~)" and ensure that it's set to "Yes." Click "Apply" and "OK" to save your changes.

 Enter the Command

Now that the developer console is enabled, you can start entering commands. Type "net_graph 1" (without the quotation marks) in the console and press Enter. This command will display a graphical overlay containing various information, including your FPS.

Choose the command that suits your preference and press Enter. The overlay will now appear in your desired position.

Hide the Console Window

Once you're satisfied with the position of the net_graph overlay, you can hide the console window to have a full-screen gameplay experience. To do this, press the tilde key (~) once more. The console window will disappear, but the overlay will remain visible.

Feel free to experiment with these commands and find the settings that suit your preferences. Remember to press Enter after entering each command to apply the changes.

Remember that displaying the FPS overlay during a competitive match may distract you or obstruct your view, so it's crucial to find the right balance between monitoring your FPS and focusing on the gameplay. Use the net_graph overlay wisely to enhance your gaming experience without compromising your performance.
