If you’re getting placed into matchmaking games in CS:GO that feel laggy to you or are giving you high ping, it might be worth setting up a command to limit the max ping of servers you’ll join. The mm_dedicated_search_maxping command will only search for matchmaking servers with latencies lower than you specify.
In order you use console commands, you'll need to have the developer console enabled. If you don't have it enabled, check out our developer console guide here which will take you through the steps. After enabling the developer console, hitting the ` (grave) or ~ (tilde) key will open it up.
The syntax for the max matchmaking ping command is as follows:
All you need to do is replace PING HERE with your desired maximum ping for matchmaking. This command would only search for servers that you have a ping lower than 60 for:
mm_dedicated_search_maxping 60 Copy
You can change 60 to whatever value you'd like, but remember that the lower the ping number, the longer it will take for you to find a game. This is because there will be a smaller selection of servers you can queue for. If you find yourself waiting a long time to find a competitive game, we recommend raising the max ping value to something higher, like 110. You can do that with this command:
mm_dedicated_search_maxping 110 Copy
