What is CS:GO?

CS:GO is a tactical, multiplayer, first-person, shooter game which provides both competitive and casual gamemodes. With a vibrant modding community, there are also plenty of custom maps and gamemodes available for free download.

We support all plugins and plugin libraries for Counter Strike Global Offensive, including SourceMod and MetaMod.

Looking to turn your dedicated server into a surfing server? You can easily install plugins on your server with SourceMod and MetaMod. We also fully support Steam Workshop custom maps!

Purchasing a Shockbyte CSGO server will additionally give you access to a CS2 server, and vice versa. Switch between them freely as you wish if you want to experience CSGO, or the latest up-to-date CS2 gameplay.
