How to Respawn in CS2?

If you have played games like Battlefield or Call of Duty, you might have noticed that you instantly respawn a few seconds after dying. However, you don’t respawn until the next round in CS2, at least for any of the ranked game modes. Here’s a complete explanation of respawning in CS2.

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.


Waiting for the round to end just so you can respawn is annoying. While you can’t do anything about that in public matches, you now know how to instantly respawn after dying in private CS2 matches. Copy the commands carefully to avoid entering the wrong command and disrupting essential features of the game.
