CSGO: How to Change Round Limit?

Whether you play Casual or Competitive modes in CSGO, the number of rounds you play is fixed by default. The former lets you play for 15 rounds, and the latter 30 rounds. If you play custom games, you can always change the round limit to something else. Regardless of the number of rounds set for your game, the game ends once you reach the limit.

CSGO: How to Change Round Limit?

You can change round limits if you are not ready to end the party. However, the only way to change the round limits in CSGO is to use a console command. Keep on reading to learn how to modify the round numbers.

Changing CSGO Round Limits

The command to change the round count of each game in CSGO can only be executed in the game’s console. However, the game disables the console by default, and you can not open it without going to the settings menu.

If you have not enabled the console already, follow these steps:

  1. Launch CSGO on your PC.

  2. Select “Options” from the top-right corner of the main menu.
  3. Pick “Game Settings.”

  4. You will see “Enable Developer Console” as one of the options.

  5. Set it to “Yes.”

  6. From now on, you can press “~” to bring up the console.

If you do not want to use the Tilde key, rebind it to another key. In a match or the main menu, pressing the button will always bring up the console.

You can get into a CSGO custom game now that the console is enabled. Pick your team and open the console.

Next, use these steps to change the number of rounds for your game.

  1. Bring up the console.

  2. In the console, type “mp_maxrounds” and the number of rounds you want. For example, “mp_maxrounds 16” changes the round limit to 16.

  3. Execute the command.
  4. After executing the command, you can play the desired number of rounds before the game ends.

Games in CSGO have a maximum round limit of 36 rounds, and it is impossible to go any further.

Changing Round Times

You can also mess with the round’s timer with a different command.

For comparison, Casual Mode has a round time of 1:55, and Competitive Mode’s rounds last 2:15. If you want to spice things up by having one-minute rounds or prefer slow rounds of five minutes, here is how you do it:

  1. Open the console.

  2. Type “mp_roundtime” without any quotation marks.

  3. Type in a value in seconds.

  4. Execute this command.
  5. The round times will change after you run the command.

With both commands, you can set up some unusual rulesets. Whether for fun or serious practice, modifying round times and round counts are just a matter of entering a couple of simple commands.

What a Strange Ruleset

When you learn to use the console commands, your power is in your hands. You can set up 1v1 rulesets that end quickly or games that progress at a snail’s pace. Thankfully, you do not need to hack the game to do this at all.
