CSGO is one of the most competitive first-person shooters out there. Hence, most players feel the need to have a live count of their framerate displayed somewhere on their screen. In this way, they can monitor the performance of their PC and see if they need to tweak any settings in order to get some more frames.
To show FPS in CSGO, you will need to type in some commands in the console. For that, you will need to make sure that the console is enabled. Once enabled, you can either type “cl_showfps 1” or “net_graph 1” in the console to show the FPS. For a better explanation, here is a step-by-step guide on how to show FPS in CSGO.
- Step 1: Go to the in-game settings and enable the console, by setting the “Enable Developer Console” to the “YES” option.
- Step 2: Open the console by pressing the default key, which is the “`” or the “~” key located directly under the “Esc” key.
- Step 3: Type “cl_showfps 1” in the console.
- Step 4: Press the “Enter” key.
- Step 5: Once you press enter, the command will take effect and a tiny FPS counter will show up on the top left side of your screen.
- Step 6: Or type in “net_graph 1”.
- Step 7: Press the “Enter” key again.
- Step 8: Once you press the “Enter” key the new command will take effect and a set of information will show up on the lower right corner of your screen. This information will also contain the FPS.
