The CS:GO auto weapon switch is an infamous feature of the game and a frequent round-loser as it can get you killed if you pick up and automatically switch to a weapon at the wrong time. The easiest way to turn off auto switch (also known as auto pickup) is by using a simple console command, though it can also be changed in the game settings.
To turn off auto weapon switch, just copy the command in the box below into your console:
cl_autowepswitch 0 Copy
If you ever need to turn auto weapon switch back on, then use the command in the box below:
cl_autowepswitch 1 Copy
If you’d rather turn off the feature through the game’s settings, just follow these steps.
Press ESC > Settings Menu > Game Settings > Item > Switch Weapon on Pick Up > No
Now enjoy the freedom of clutching without the game playing against you!
