How To Create A GSLT For CS2 (Steam Game Server Login Token)

Here is how you create a GSLT for CS2 and add it to your server. This is required by Valve to be displayed in the server list.

  1. Go here and login with your Steam account.
  2. Under App ID enter 730 for CS2, then name the memo anything you want.
  3. Visit Game Host Bros Panel and select your Counter Strike 2 server.
  4. Go to Configuration > Startup Parameters.
  5. Enter your token under Game Server Login Token.
  6. Click Console in the sidebar and then restart your server.

If you have the error Cert request for invalid failed with reason code 5005. We're not logged into Steam, that means your token is invalid and may need to be generated again.

Requirements for Making a GSLT

Valve has some guidelines on what accounts are able to create a Game Server Login Token.

  • Your Steam account must not be currently community banned or locked.
  • Your Steam account must not be limited.
  • Your Steam account must have a qualifying registered phone.
  • Your Steam account must own the game for which you are creating a game server account.
  • Your Steam account may create 1000 game server accounts.


In the past, Valve has token banned server owners that have used plugins that grant users special weapon skins, knifes or ranks. If Valve token bans you, this means you can no longer host servers from your account, and you will be temporarily banned from Competitive mode. We strongly suggest you view Valves Terms of Service to see what is an isn’t allowed.

If your GSLT is banned then you will need to use another Steam account to generate tokens in the future.
