Viewmodel settings in Counter-Strike 2 (CS2) control the position and appearance of your weapon model in the first-person view. They allow you to customize how much of your weapon you see and where it's positioned on the screen. If you are looking for the best viewmodel settings in CS2, we have them right here along with a detailed explanation of what each setting does to your game.

Should You Change Viewmodel Settings in CS2?

Viewmodel settings control how your weapon appears on your screen. This includes two things:

  1. Field of View (FOV): This determines how much of the world you see around your weapon. A higher FOV lets you see more but can make your weapon appear smaller.

  2. Offsets: These settings fine-tune the position of your weapon on the screen. You can adjust it left/right, closer/further from the center, and up/down.

By adjusting these settings, you can customize how much of your weapon you see and where it's positioned on the screen. This can help you find a setup that feels comfortable and improves your gameplay.

Best Viewmodel Settings for Counter-Strike 2

There isn't a single "best" viewmodel setting in CS2 as preference plays a big role. However, there are popular configurations many players find comfortable. Here's a common setup to get you started:

Field of View (FOV):

  • viewmodel_fov 68 (default is 60)

This increases how much you see around your weapon, potentially giving you a wider view of the battlefield.


  • viewmodel_offset_x 2.5

  • viewmodel_offset_y 2.0

  • viewmodel_offset_z -2.0

These adjust the position of your weapon on the screen.

  • X: moves it left (negative values) or right (positive values).

  • Y: moves it closer (negative values) or further (positive values) from the center of the screen.

  • Z: moves it up (negative values) or down (positive values).

This configuration scoots the weapon slightly to the right and brings it closer to the center of the screen, keeping more focus on the overall view.

How to Use Viewmodel Settings in CS2

  1. Open the console in CS2. You can usually do this with the key (tilde).

  2. Type in the commands one by one, replacing the values (e.g., 68) if you prefer something different.

  3. Press Enter after each command.

Always Adjust Viewmodel Settings to Your Preference

These are starting points, feel free to experiment and adjust the values to find what works best for you. Play around with the settings in a practice match to see how they affect your gameplay.
