Shooting your way through Deathmatch may polish your aim, but some solo practice is crucial in high-level Counter-Strike: Global Offensive games. That’s why players hungry to climb ranks are looking for the best CSGO practice config and commands in 2022.

Limiting your practice regime to improving your aim is one of the reasons many players are hard stuck in low ranks. High-ELO games require map knowledge and utility usage, not just a big kill score. Luckily there are ways to improve these other important gameplay elements.

An open practice playground can help players become an asset to their team, ultimately winning rounds on strategy and not just pure luck and aim. Players may need to feed in a few commands to effectively turn a custom bot game into your practice playground. These are the best CSGO practice config and commands in 2022.

How to create a CSGO practice config in 2022

Creating a CSGO practice config in 2022 is pretty simple. Copy the commands mentioned above and make a new notepad document. You can also download the config file provided below and move it to the cfg folder. Make sure you replace “KEYS” with your preferred keybinds before moving on to the next step.

  • Add a new name to the file, but make sure it has a .cfg extension. For example, practice.cfg. 
  • Copy the “practice.cfg” file and paste it into the CFG folder located in:
  • C:\Steam\steamapps\common\Counter-Strike Global Offensive\csgo\cfg
