Competitive players were disappointed when they discovered that CS2 would not include the net graph. Fortunately, it’s now possible to check ping and FPS in real-time. 

Even the most minor fluctuations in network digits in high-stakes games can change the outcome. For this reason, serious players in CS2 liked to keep their net graph turned on at all times. 

CS2 ping and FPS overlay is one of the most useful non-gameplay features. The short command helped keep track of ping and FPS fluctuations in high-stakes games. With a numerical bar constantly appearing at the bottom of the screen, players could comfortably apply solutions whenever a single digit went amiss. 

The great news is that players can now turn on the net graph in CS2 and closely monitor any performance changes. Here’s how to turn on the ping overlay in CS2.
