How To Install Plugins On CS2

Using our Mod Manager, you can get Metamod, CounterStrikeSharp and some plugins installed on your CS2 server with a single click.

Installing Metamod & CounterStrikeSharp

The first thing you need to do is to install Metamod Source. This is the base foundation that most plugins use.

  1. Load the Game Host Bros Panel.
  2. Select your server.
  3. In the left-hand menu, click Tools > Mod Manager.
  4. Look for Metamod Source & CounterStrikeSharp. Game Host Bros Mod Manager Screenshot
  5. Click the Install buttons for both then restart the server.

At Game Host Bros, we automatically update Metamod & CounterStrikeSharp every time your server starts.

Installing Plugins

We have some CounterStrikeSharp plugins already added to our 1-click Mod Manager.

  1. Load the Game Host Bros Panel.
  2. Select your server.
  3. In the left-hand menu, click Tools > Mod Manager.
  4. Look for the plugin you want to install.
  5. Click the Install button then restart the server.

You can check if the plugin is loaded by typing css_plugins list into the console. If you manually need to install a plugin, the most common folder you need to upload them to is /game/csgo/addons/counterstrikesharp/plugins.
