How to Change the Map on a Counter-Strike 2 Server


Discover a quick and simple way to switch maps on your CS2 server using the console. This guide offers easy steps to elevate your gaming experience. Let's get started!

Preparing for Map Change:

Before you proceed to change the CS2 server map, identify the map you want to switch to. Ensure that the map file is present in your server's map directory, typically located in the "maps" folder.

Accessing Your CS2 Server Console:

Connect to your CS2 server console. You can do this through our GameHost Control Panel.

Selecting the New Map:

In the console, use the following command to change the map. For example, to switch to the "de_dust2" map:

changelevel de_dust2

Make sure to replace "de_dust2" with the exact name of the map you want to load.

Example of usage

Confirming Map Change:

Check the console output for any error messages or confirmation that the map change was successful. The server should load the specified map, and players connecting afterward will join the new map.

Verifying the Map Change:

Launch CS2 and connect to your server to confirm that the map has changed to the desired one.
