In this guide we will go through some of the most useful console commands in CS:GO, which require sv_cheats to be enabled. Have you ever wondered what it feels like using cheats and hacks in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive? With the built-in sv_cheats commands, you can experience wallhack, no recoil and godmode for yourself. However, there are no commands for “aimbot” at the moment. That said, we don’t recommend you getting a taste for it, since it will end up getting you VAC banned if you choose to use hacks one day. On the other hand, using the commands in this article on a server where sv_cheats is enabled, will NOT get you VAC banned. More on this later.
Sv_cheats commands is just a special type of console commands. To work, they require the server admin to enable cheats. This is done by setting the sv_cheats command to 1. Open the console and type:
Because this is a built in functionallity in CS:GO, you will NOT get banned for using sv_cheats commands. I repeat, you will NOT get VAC banned for using sv_cheats 1 commands!
This is not true however, if you downloaded a hack somewhere, which bypassses sv_cheats and enables it only for you. But if you haven’t downloaded any program or hack, you should not worry about anything.
Typing the commands in a random server will not get you banned either, because they won’t work. As mentioned before, only the server admin can enable cheats.
In this guide, we will not cover all of the commands which requires sv_cheats to be enabled. Instead visit the full list of sv_cheats commands if you wish to view all of the commands.
