Console Commands are an integral part of any old, new, and upcoming Counter-Strike player. It is a tool that allows players to tinker around with a lot of developer options that may or may not be present along with the usual game settings.

Before moving ahead, players with access to Counter-Strike 2 will need to first enable the Console by opening 'Settings' and going to the 'Game' tab. Here they will come across an option 'Enable Developer Console (~)'.

Once done, players will be able to input any Console Command by simply pressing 'Tilde' or '~'.

  3. Start playing a game of CS2 and you will notice on the top left corner of your screen that a small information hub has appeared which shows the FPS, Latency, Packet Loss, and other details.

In case, only information about the FPS in CS2 is required then the above console command can be replaced by "cl_showfps 1", without the quotation marks. This will give the FPS in real time on the top left corner without creating any serious clutter on the screen.

In case you do not want to go through so much hassle, there is another alternate way of showing the FPS of CS2 via Steam itself.
