How to Enable Cheats on Your CS:GO Server

When hosting a private CS:GO Server, you may want to allow players to be seen through walls or enable noclip. You can change these settings, and many more by enabling cheats on your server.

If cheats are enabled on your server, all players can access cheat commands. To prevent all players from having access to these commands, you can check out our knowledgebase article on how to set up player permissions here.

Important: Admin commands are not considered cheat commands. Therefore players will not have access to sv_ commands even with cheats enabled.

Enabling Cheats on Your Server

You can enable cheats by entering the sv_cheats 1 console command into your server's console.

  1. Access your control panel and ensure your server is Online.
  2. Click Console.
  3. Enter the command sv_cheats 1.

Enabling Cheats via Server Settings

Alternatively, you can enable cheats by setting the Cheats option to 1 through your CSGO Server Settings using your server's control panel.

  1. Access your control panel and Stop your server.
  2. Navigate to Files > Config Files.
  3. Click CSGO Server Settings.
  4. Locate the option Cheats and set it to 1.
  5. Start your server.
