Knives are among the most expensive items you can get in Counter Strike: Global Offensive, with some reaching extreme numbers in real-world price tags. Owning one is a point of pride and prestige and some see it as a means of evaluating how serious about the game a player is. So if you ever wanted to see what some of those knives looked like in-game, and not just from pictures online, there is actually a series of commands within a custom game that you can use to evaluate their looks before committing to a purchase. Or you can use them just to check the knives out and get cool screenshots.

Setting up a custom game in CS:GO

You will have to be in a custom game to use knife commands, so let’s set one up first. Make sure that you have the ‘developer console’ option enabled in the settings menu, within the ‘game settings’ tab.

Next, head over to the game mode selection screen and choose ‘Practice with Bots’, then change the Bot count to ‘No Bots’. After that, pick any map that you want and spawn into it. 

We’re almost done with prep, now you just need to change the round timer to the max so that those pesky timers don’t count down all the time. To do that, open the console by hitting the tilde key (~) and then paste the following two commands:

  • sv_cheats 1
  • mp_roundtime_defuse 60;mp_roundtime_hostage 60;mp_roundtime 60;mp_restartgame 1

And with that, the round will restart and you’ll have plenty of time to test out the knife commands with the console cheat mode enabled.

Knife Commands in CS:GO

Before you begin spawning in various knives, you have to enable a command that lets you drop the default knife first. To do that, use the following command:

  • mp_drop_knife_enable 1

With this active, drop your knife (the default key is G) and then use one of our commands to spawn in and test the various knives:

Knife type Console command
CT Default Knife give weapon_knife
T Default Knife give weapon_knife_t
Bayonet give weapon_bayonet;ent_fire weapon_knife addoutput “classname weapon_knifegg”
Bowie give weapon_knife_survival_bowie;ent_fire weapon_knife addoutput “classname weapon_knifegg”

Navaja give weapon_knife_gypsy_jackknife;ent_fire weapon_knife addoutput “classname weapon_knifegg”
Nomad give weapon_knife_outdoor;ent_fire weapon_knife addoutput “classname weapon_knifegg”
Paracord give weapon_knife_cord;ent_fire weapon_knife addoutput “classname weapon_knifegg”
Shadow Daggers give weapon_knife_push;ent_fire weapon_knife addoutput “classname weapon_knifegg”
Skeleton give weapon_knife_skeleton;ent_fire weapon_knife addoutput “classname weapon_knifegg”
Stiletto give weapon_knife_stiletto;ent_fire weapon_knife addoutput “classname weapon_knifegg”
Survival knife give weapon_knife_canis;ent_fire weapon_knife addoutput “classname weapon_knifegg”
Talon give weapon_knife_widowmaker;ent_fire weapon_knife addoutput “classname weapon_knifegg”
Ursus give weapon_knife_ursus;ent_fire weapon_knife addoutput “classname weapon_knifegg”

With these, you can test out and play around with any knife type in the game within the confines of the custom game you’ve created. It bears repeating that you can’t use any of these commands within a normal match of CS:GO.
