The Most popular Tools

Here are some of the most popular cheats in CS2 according to my personal experience. Remember that I do not condone the use of these methods in any way and that people that use such software run the risk of permanent game bans, as using them is against the Terms of Service of the game:

  • Aimbots: These are automated programs that automatically lock onto enemies and optionally automatically shoot for players.
  • Wallhacks: ESP software shows the exact location of players on the screen by means of colored boxes, skeletons or other highlight methods that are easy to read, allowing player to see through walls.
  • Scripts: Macros and scripts are able to perform automated actions, such as mitigating recoil automatically when spray firing an automatic rifle. Spin bots are also a popular way to avoid damage using scripts.
  • Map Hacks: These pieces of software can display a 2D map with friendly and enemy locations highlighted usually in red and blue, allowing players to easily be aware of players around them without moving their field of view.
  • No Recoil: These apps disable recoil client-side, which is extremely powerful in CS2, as most weapons have significant recoil.
  • Skin Mods: While skins cannot be unlocked, the skin that is displayed can be changed on the player side. Other players will not see your skins, but you will.

What is a CS2 Aimbot?

Aimbots are arguably the most powerful game cheats in Counter Strike 2: They exploit the fact that that a players PC has to know where all the players are to display the game correctly. They use this data to automatically aim and shoot weapons for users of auto aiming software.

Usually an aimbot will me mapped to a hotkey and start aiming once the key is pressed. The software can be configured to automatically shoot and the aim speed and pattern, delays and other features can be customized.

In my personal experience aimbots are extremely powerful, but not very fun to use, as they eliminate any sense of skill or achievement that I usually get from playing a competitive shooter, which is why I tend not to use them. They are also quite easy to detect and ban and therefore risky to use. - More about aimbots.

Wallhacks – Seeing Through Walls

ESP stands for ‘extrasensory perception’ and it is a software that is most connonly referred to as ‘wallhack’, as it allows users to see through walls. This software again exploits the fact that the Counter Strike 2 game needs to know all the player positions to display friendly and enemy positions on a users screen using colored highlights, such as boxes or skeletons. - The software can also display additional information such as player health, if enemies can see you (warnings), equipment ect.

In my experience wallhacks are more fun to use than auto aiming software and can also be harder to detect if used with caution. - They do not make bad player with no experience or mechanics overpowered, but will improve a player performance considerably. The fun in learning maps and mastering game mechanics, such as controlling recoil and aiming is retained, but the software still offers an extreme advantage over players that do not see through walls obviously. - More about wallhacks.

What are the Risks when using Counter Strike 2 Cheats?

Besides the obvious risk of getting your steam account banned from playing the game, there are also other risks associated with using cheats especially in online games: Any software you download from an untrustworthy site may put your PC at risk and therefore you should do a lot of research before running any software on your PC and make sure that the uploader or provider are trustworthy.

Is also may be useful to use a secondary PC that you only use for playing games to test such software before using it on any PC your really care about. This is even more important for free download, but also applies to paid subscription software.

My Review

For me personally using cheating software in Counter Strike 2 has been quite a bad experience: Not only are CS2 players extremely good at spotting any suspicious activity and calling it out, but the game is simply not as fun to use aimbots or ESP software on as other more arcade-like games, such as Call of Duty. Especially while using automated aiming tools I felt ‘ditry’, as the game is too personal, serious and competitive for me personally to use such software. - In games like Call of Duty or Battlefield you have a certain degree of separation, re-spawns are quick and people are not hyper-competitive, making me feel like I am not really annoying anyone with my use of modding software.

Overall, while I must admit that using cheats does work and is extremely effective, I cannot recommend it in any way: I ruined my own fun, felt guilty and constantly had to worry that someone calls me out over voice chat or text chat, which put me on edge constantly. Download if you must, but I do not recommend or condone it in games like this.
