CS2 Knife Commands

Vanilla is boring!

If you're anything like us, you think having the regular knife in CS2 is boring. The good news is that there's a way to change things up on your own server or on a practice map if you have access to the console and sv_cheats. The even better news is that it's really easy to do!

Change Knife with Console Commands

First, enable and open the console (the default key is ` or ~). If you don't know how to do this see our CS2 and CS:GO console guide.

After opening the console, run these commands:

sv_cheats 1; mp_drop_knife_enable 1

Then, drop your knife on the floor and hover your crosshair over it:

Crosshair over a CS2 knife

With your crosshair over the knife, open the console and run the following command to set it to a butterfly knife (don't worry, we explain how to change it to a different type of knife afterwards):

subclass_change 515

To change your knife to a different type of knife, change the 515 in the above command to a number from the list below.
