What are the Different Game Modes in CS: GO?

Community Jul 29, 2022

In this blog, we will be getting into all the different game modes in Cs: Go like Competitive, Classic, and many more.  

You could be a beginner in the game, and want to try out Cs: Go as it can be considered as the game that you must get good at if you want to be good at any FPS games. Well, whatever the reason might be, we will be here to help you with everything. Hence, in today’s blog, we will be getting into all the different game modes in Cs: Go, which one you should play, and which one is going to help you more with the game. There are a total of seven game modes, and you should not be afraid of them from the very beginning!

Different game modes in CS: Go

Without wasting much time, let us get into the details of each of the seven game modes in Cs: Go:


These are the different ranks in the game.

This is the basic game mode that you should play if you want to increase your rank. Competitive games usually take place between two teams who have five players each. One side is the terrorist, and the other is the counter-terrorist. The CT has to defend and the Terrorists have to attack the site. One match will have thirty rounds, and after the fifteenth round, the teams get to change from defensive to attack, or vice versa. The first team to reach 16 points is considered the winner. Sometimes both the teams could score equally, and then the match could go on for longer until either both the teams draw again, or one of them gets a higher score. Additionally, you will not be allowed to play Competitive until you reach Private Rank 20 by collecting enough points. You can do this by playing Casual modes, and the other game modes.

Casual Mode

This is quite similar to the competitive rank, but it is much shorter and lenient with the players. Additionally, each team will have 10 players each, which is quite a huge difference from the Competitive mode. Another thing to take note of is that the Casual mode punishes the players far less than the Competitive mode overall. However, this is also one of the reasons why people tend to ignore Casual Mode because the games are way too easy. However, one thing that you should always keep in mind is that the Casual mode is the best mode if you want to practice more and get better at testing out your tactics and strategies.

This is one of the most important game modes that you need to play every day if you want to become a pro. In Deathmatch, you will get players who are going to respawn every time they get killed, and they can use any weapon they want to. Deathmatch gives you a good prospect to explore all the corners and everything on a map, which helps you to be more familiar with it. This in turn would make you better at understanding the whole map, and finally, help you perform better in all the upcoming matches.


Cs: Go Wingman.

Wingman is the competitive mode that you might want to go for if you want a quick competitive match. Wingman was introduced at the Operation Hydra event in 2017 and ever since then, has become quite a popular game mode in CS: Go. Basically, in this mode, you can only go into the game with two players in your team, and the game is won on a best of 16-round basis. Hence, the match time becomes extremely low, and you can play more wingman than in the competitive mode. However, the only drawback of this mode is that you will have a different rank for the Wingman and a different rank for the Competitive mode. Hence, if you want to increase your rank in either of them, you've got to grind harder in these modes individually.

Arms Race

This is extremely similar to Deathmatch. The only difference is that you will be forced to go into close-range combat. That means you will be respawned extremely quickly, and then you will have to kill your opponent almost immediately. Another added feature of this mode is that you get weapons progression for each of your kills. This means that you will not be able to choose your weapon at the beginning. The game will choose it for you, and you can only get better weapons once you manage to make a kill. Hence, if you do not perform well, you will be stuck with the same weapon for the rest of the game. This also helps you increase your experience with other weapons hence when you go to play in Competitive you can save in certain rounds, and manage to play in various weapons without any issue.

This is one of the least popular game modes in Cs: go but if you are up for something more challenging, we would recommend you go for this mode. This is a mixture of the Classic mode and Arms Race. You have to defend a bomb site, but you will not be given the liberty to choose any weapon you feel like. The game will choose a weapon for you, and if you can keep getting good kills, you will start to get better weapons. Hence, in this mode, you will have to focus on defending a site while also getting kills. This makes the game all the more interesting and difficult, too. This is a good mode to practice in a more challenging setting if you do not want to get straight into Competitive.


These were the game modes in CS: Go, you can play either of them according to your tastes and choices. All of them will eventually help you to get better at your game style, and hence should be tried out at least once.
