God mode in CS gives you unlimited health and prevents you from taking any damage. It's useful for practicing and pranking your friends. It is activated with a console command.
1. Enable and Open the Developer Console
Skip this step if you've already enabled the developer console.
Go to your CS:GO or CS2 settings, click the
Game tab, and select
Yes under the
Enable Developer Console option. You can open the console after enabling it with the
` (grave) and
~ (tilde) keys.
For more help, see our how to enable and use the developer console guide.
2. Enable Cheats (sv_cheats 1)
Cheats need to be enabled in order to use this command. To do this, enter the following into the developer console:
CS:GO Only: God Command
This command only works in CS:GO. For CS2's god command, see below.
After cheats are enabled in CS:GO, all you need to do is type the following command into the console:
This command will give you unlimited health and make you not take any damage. If it isn't working, make sure you have enabled cheats with the
sv_cheats 1 command. You can disable god mode by typing the command into the console again (it toggles it).
CS2: God Command (Buddha)
god command was removed in Counter-Strike 2, but don't worry, there's another way to enable god mode: Buddha mode. It's important to note that CS2's god command alternative applies to everyone on the server but you can turn it off for bots.
In Buddha mode you still take damage but your minimum health is limited to 1HP, so you can never die. To enable Buddha mode (and disable it for bots), use the following command:
buddha true; buddha_ignore_bots true
To disable Buddha for bots (this makes them invincible too), run the following command:
