How to Show FPS in Counter-strike: GO [3 Methods]

How to Show FPS in Counter-strike: GO [3 Methods]

Here I will teach you how to show your FPS in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. Suppose you want to check how much FPS you are getting after you updated the GPU etc. I have posted about three different methods which you can use to show FPS in csgo. Each method is a little different so you can choose the one which fits you.



Method 1.

The first method is to use to a simple Console Command.

A simple way to show FPS in csgo using console:

This is the easiest way to show FPS, Ping and other related information in csgo. First, you will need to enable the Console in csgo. After that launch, the console while in-game.

Then simply type there   net_graph 1  , it will show FPS and other info on the bottom-right side of your screen. To turn it off simply type in   net_graph 0   the console and it will be gone.




Method 2.

Using default FPS counter which is available on Steam.

Follow these steps to activate the default Steam FPS counter:

Step1. While in-game, open the steam overlay (Alt+Tab). Then navigate to ‘Setting>In-game>Show Fps Counter’ and enable it.

Step.2 You can select where to want to show the counter. Once you enable it, it will be available on the corner which you have selected.

Step.3 Now you can even set the color you want the counter to be.




Method 3.

Binding a Key for net_graph.

Here is a csgo FPS Bind which will allow you to check FPS and other things available on ‘net graph’ command. With this bind, you will just have to press a key (Tab key here) and along with the Scoreboard and you will also see the FPS, latency(PING), loss etc.

BIND (copy and paste the code below on your autoexec file.)

alias +shownet "+showscores; net_graphheight 64"
alias -shownet "-showscores; net_graphheight 9999"
net_graph 1
bind TAB +shownet

This command binds Tab with Scoreboard+ net_graph 1, as soon you release the keys the net_graph counter will also go away. It is great if you want no clutter on the screen while playing a match, but when needed want to take a quick look at the info.

The way it works is by having the net_graph command always on, but the size is very small so you can not see it. But once you press Tab it restores the size and then net_graph is completely visible.

Enabling Console.

The console allows us to change a variety of settings and view valuable information in CSGo. To enable your console, you need to follow a few steps. First, open Settings, then go to Game setting and click on enable developer console. Above there you can also select the key you want to bind to the console.


Where to find your autoexec file.

The autoexec file for Counter-Strike: GO is usually located in this folder.

‘C:/Program Files (x86)/Steam/steamapps/common/Counter-Strike Global Offensive/csgo/cfg’. Where this (C:/Program Files (x86)/Steam) path will be where you have chosen to install CSGO or where you steam library folder is.

autoexec not working?

If you have placed the autoexec file in the folder mentioned above and it is still not working then you can try two things. One, you can add -autoexec to you launch options(Steam>Library>CSGO>*Right click*>Properties-Launch options).

Next option is to manually execute your autoexec file from your Console every time to run the game. If still not working check the syntax of and code of the file and see if it is correct. One more thing, you need to add 'host_writeconfig'at the end of your config file to make it work.


So I hope you got what you were looking for, listed above are the most common and popular methods for showing fps in csgo. Actually not the Bind one, but it is still great and works like a charm.
