With the transition of CS:GO to CS 2, players are eager to adapt and make the most of the game’s improvements. One burning question on their minds is how to set up autoexecs in this new version. Autoexecs have long been the secret sauce for CS enthusiasts. As players start to pour in to try out the game, many are asking the question: How to set up Autoexecs in CS2? Well, as always, we are here to offer guidance and help you set up Autoexec with all your favorite commands.
If you did not know, in Counter-Strike (CS), an autoexec, short for “auto-execute,” is a configuration file that contains a set of console commands and settings. These commands and settings are executed automatically when you launch the game. Autoexec files are commonly used by CS players to customize their gaming experience, fine-tune in-game settings, and automate repetitive actions. With that out of the way, let us see how to set up this feature in CS2.
Counter-Strike 2 (CS2) Autoexec: How to set it up?
Whether you want to tweak your settings, enable the FPS counter, or execute various in-game commands, an autoexec.cfg file can be a powerful tool. From creating the file to editing it, we have listed the steps for each below. Check them out!
Creating the Autoexec.cfg File
To begin, right-click on CS2 in your Steam library and select “Browse Local Files”. This will open the game’s installation directory. Within the game folder, navigate to the “game” folder, followed by the “csgo” folder, and then open the “cfg” folder. If you don’t already have an autoexec.cfg file, you’ll need to create one. Ensure that you can see file extensions by clicking “View” at the top of the window and selecting the “File name extensions” option. After that, right-click anywhere in the “cfg” folder, select “New”, and then choose “Text Document”. Rename the file to “autoexec.cfg” (without the quotes) and press Enter. Make sure the file is of the .cfg extension and not .txt.
Editing the Autoexec.cfg File
Now that you have your autoexec.cfg file, you can start adding commands to it. These commands will run automatically every time you launch CS2. To add commands to the file, simply right-click on the autoexec.cfg file and choose to open it with a text editor like Notepad. Now, you can add various commands that you frequently use in your matches.
Launching CS2 with Autoexec.cfg
To ensure that your autoexec.cfg file runs when you start CS2, right-click on Counter-Strike 2 from your Steam library and select “Properties”. In the Properties window, go to the “General” tab and scroll down to the “Launch Options” text box. In the launch options text box, add the following command: “+exec autoexec.cfg “. Click “lose” to save your changes, and then launch CS2. Your autoexec.cfg file will now run automatically.
Still doesn’t load the commands automatically?
If your game is not loading the commands from the autoexec file that you just created, you can manually execute them on the game console. Open the console in CS2 and type: exec autoexec.cfg. This command will execute all the commands stored in your autoexec.cfg file.
