Are Counter-Strike 2 servers down?

Check your internet connection

One troubleshooting solution is disconnecting your router and modem and reconnecting them. Doing this will restart your internet and potentially fix the issues. If that doesn't work, try restarting your PC or exiting out of Steam.

Update CS2

Games like Counter-Strike 2 are updated often by developers, so make sure you have the latest update installed. That's especially true if you haven't played the game for a while and still have CSGO installed instead of CS2.

If neither of these troubleshoots works, then there isn't more you can do other than wait. The developers usually fix server problems, but they often take time. You can check the status of the servers to see when the servers become fixed.

How to check CS2 server status

The official Twitter (X) account @CounterStrike is the best place to check the status of the servers for the game. When servers go down, the Twitter account will keep players up-to-date, and if you don't see any tweets about the server issues, that usually means that the server problem has already been fixed. Other good sources to check the server status for CS2 are downdetector.com, Steamstat.us, or csgodatabase.com.
