How to Enable Cheats on Your CS:GO Server

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

If cheats are enabled on your server, all players will have access to cheat commands. To prevent all players from having access to cheat commands, you can check out our guide on How to Setup Player Permissions here.

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


Enabling cheats is as simple as entering a console command! Although do note that this method will only enable cheats once, restarting the server will reset it back to its default value.

  1. Login to your server's control panel.
  2. On the left-hand side, click Console.
  3. Enter the command sv_cheats 1.
  4. Cheats are now enabled on your server!


  1. Login to your server's control panel.
  2. On the left-hand side, click File Config Files.
  3. Open CSGO Server Settings.
  4. Change the Cheats option from 0 to 1.
  5. Restart your server for the new changes to take effect!
