This article will tell you about the minimum and recommended system requirements to play Counter Strike (CS2) on your computer

Following Valve’s announcement of the coming of Counter-Strike 2, a new shooter based on the Source 2 engine, many gamers have begun to ask if they can play the new title with their present setup.

Many users had to make numerous changes to their PCs to play the new title when it was released more than ten years ago.

While many PCs were capable of running the game, the experience was less than ideal because they did not satisfy the optimal requirements for smooth game performance. As time went, Valve improved CS:GO so that it could be played by a larger number of people.

With the release of CS2, many players have posed the same issue, and we will answer it below by showing you the minimum system requirements to run CS2 optimally.

Minimum System Requirements of CS2

  • Operating system: Windows 10 (64 bits)
  • Intel or AMD dual-core, quad-core, quad-threaded processor with 2.8 GHz speed.
  • 4 GB of RAM.
  • GeForce GTX 650 or Radeon HD 7750 graphics card.
  • 60 GB of free space on the Hard Disk.

Recommended system requirements for Counter-Strike 2 have not been officially released by Valve. However, these will most likely be comparable to CS:GO because, as is widely known, CS2 will be released as an update to the current game rather than as a new title.

While many gaming PCs nowadays can satisfy these specifications, the vast majority will be unable to. With the advancement of technology and other graphic changes to video games to make them more “realistic,” having a good computer to play CS2 with the best settings is crucial.

Many older machines may not satisfy these requirements due to their age, and even if they can run CS2, the gaming experience would be subpar.
