How to Import CS:GO Config Into CS2

Final adaptations and renovations before we hit the battlefield.

Seasoned FPS veterans love to maintain and cherish their config files, keybindings, macros, and settings, and honestly, nobody can blame them. It’s brilliant that saving your settings and using them later, even after you uninstall the game, is possible. Here’s how you can quickly import your CS: GO config file into CS2 so you do not need to build it from the ground up.

Steps to Transfer CS: GO Config Into CS2

If you haven’t purged the remnants of CS: GO from your PC, the “legacy” CS: GO config files should be in your \Steam\userdata\STEAMID\730\local\cfg folder. Or in another folder where you’ve (hopefully) backed it up. From there, you must move the .cfg file to the folder where CS2 config files are stored.

To start the process, you need to locate your CS: GO config file. By default, it can be found in the \Steam\userdata\STEAMID\730\local\cfg directory, where “STEAMID” represents your Steam account ID. If you have backed up your config file elsewhere, make sure you know the exact location.

Once you have located the CS: GO config file, you need to transfer it to the appropriate folder in CS2. The folder where CS2 config files are stored may vary depending on your operating system and installation preferences. However, it is typically found in the “cfg” directory within the main CS2 installation folder.

After finding the CS2 config folder, simply move the CS: GO config file into it. You can do this by either dragging and dropping the file into the folder or by copying and pasting it manually.

Once the transfer is complete, launch CS2 and navigate to the game’s settings menu. From there, you should be able to access and apply your imported CS: GO config file. Make sure to check and adjust any specific settings or keybindings that may differ between the two games.

It is worth noting that not all CS: GO config settings may translate perfectly into CS2. Some settings may not have an equivalent in CS2 or may be named differently. In such cases, you may need to manually adjust those settings to match your preferences.

Importing your CS: GO config into CS2 can save you valuable time and effort in configuring your settings from scratch. It ensures that you can quickly jump into the game with your preferred configurations and maximize your gaming experience.
