The text you see at the bottom-left corner of the screen in Counter-Strike 2 contains valuable information about the current build/version of the game. It's there for a specific reason – so that when players encounter bugs or issues and want to report them to Valve, the game's developer, they can submit this information. Which helps Valve identify which version of the game players are using when they submit bug reports.

Valve can then track down the problem and solve it with a lot less hassle. Mind you with automatic updates most people should be on the same version of the game anyway. But there are still variations from time to time.

Using The Console Command to Hide Build Info in CS2.

Now that you know why it's there let's get to the heart of the matter – how to hide it. To do this, you'll need to use a console command. Follow these steps:

  • Open the Console: To access the console in CS2, press the designated key ~ during gameplay. This will open the console interface.
  • In the console interface, type the following command exactly as shown


  • Now change from 'true' to 'false': After entering the command, you'll see 'show build info' with underscores in between the spaces. It's set to 'true' by default, which means the build info is displayed. To hide it, simply change 'true' to 'false.'
  • After making this change, press Enter. You'll notice that the text in the extreme bottom-left corner of your screen vanishes.
