There's nothing worse than having to waste 15 seconds, a minute, or maybe even longer (depending on your server settings), for the warmup on your CS:GO server or offline game with bots to end. Thankfully, you can use a simple console command to instantly skip the warmup and start the game.
Obviously, to use console commands, you're going to need to have the console enabled (and know how to open the console). If you don't already, check out our CS:GO console guide.
Once you've got the console opened, all you need to do is type the following command into the console to end the warmup:
If you'd like to shorten the warmup, rather than instantly skip it and go straight to the game, use the following command (replacing SECONDS with the amount of seconds you want to shorten it to):
mp_warmuptime SECONDS Copy
For example, the following command would shorten the warmup to 10 seconds:
mp_warmuptime 10 Copy
There are a bunch of other interesting console commands that you can use to alter the warmup duration in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. If you want to end the warmup when a certain number of players have connected to the game, this command would do the trick (replace PLAYERS with the amount of players that need to connect before it ends):
mp_endwarmup_player_count PLAYERS Copy
Replacing PLAYERS with 5 would make the warmup end when 5 players have connected to the server:
mp_endwarmup_player_count 5 Copy
