CS GO HUD Guide

Customize CS GO
In CS GO, players are allowed to customize the game HUD elements.
I show you how you can do some nice changes! crown

In this CS GO HUD guide let’s have a look onto the options & console commands.

What is the CS GO Hud?

HUD stands for Heads up Display and means the displayed area of the player statistics, health bars, armor, ammunition and more. While playing CS GO, it is extremely important to see the conditions fast: the health, the ammunition, the weapon inventory, radar, team-members and if you got the bomb.

With the CS GO HUD options and commands you can create your personal modded CS GO HUD style in no time! dia

How to customize the CS GO HUD?

With the new look and feel of the Counterstrike Global Offensive game menu the default options come along with many things that you can change without writing commands into the console.In this game menu you can easily change the CS GO HUD elements:

  • The HUD Scale (size of the displayed elements)
  • HUD Color (I prefer green)
  • HUD Background Alpha (here you can change the transparency)
  • The Health/Ammo Style
  • Bomb Hud Position
  • Mini-Scoreboard options (with or without avatars)

If you are more a fan of console commands, you can make use of the following HUD commands:

CS GO Radar HUD:
In the CS GO Radar HUD menu you can change:

  • The Radar HUD Size
  • Decide if you want that the Radar rotates or not
  • The Radar Zoom
  • Decide if the shape should toggle with the scoreboard

The CS GO Radar console commands is defined to change the size with a number between 0.8 and 1.3:
cl_hud_radar_scale

CS GO Playercount & Showcount:
This reduces the CS GO team member display, which can be annoying sometimes! With showcount you can even remove the avatars to just see a number and with the second command you can decide if the playercount should be displayed at the bottom of the screen!
cl_hud_playercount_showcount
cl_hud_playercount_pos

Placing the Bomb Icon below the Radar:
Decide if you want to place the bomb icon below the radar, instead in the inventory.

CS GO HUD Background:
With the background alpha you can remove the dark border around all elements with a value between 0 and 255:

Changing the Health & Ammo view:
You can remove the health bar so that you just see the numbers.
Use the CS GO console command:
cl_hud_healthammo_style

How to hide the CS GO Hud?

This is really useful if you want to make awesome screenshots or record a demo in Counterstrike Global Offensive. The command removes all displayed HUD elements and make the game just plain, of course it is extremely hard to aim without a crosshair, but it is just for testing & showcases!
