CS2 Play Workshop Maps

There are 2 different methods you can use for workshop maps. One is by loading a single map or creating a collection.

How To Get Your Workshop ID

You will need to know how to get a Workshop ID for both single maps and collections. Let’s use this map for example: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=3070288532&searchtext=bhop

CS2 workshop URL

As you can see from the numbers in the URL, our map ID is 3070288532

How To Create And Load Workshop Collection

If you want to have multiple maps, then you will need to create a collection. A workshop collection is simply a group of workshop items. You will also need to modify the startup command for your server.

Here is what you need:

Let’s first create the collection.

  1. Go to the CS2 Collections page here.
  2. Click Create Collection and add the maps you want to that collection.
  3. Get the Collection ID from the URL (using the same method as getting the map ID)
  4. Go to your server Game Host Bros Panel and select Configuration > Startup Parameter
  5. Make sure Workshop Type is set to Workshop Collection workshop collection ID
  6. Select Workshop ID, and put your Collection ID in there and restart your server.

After that, simply restart the server and all the maps will be available. Type ds_workshop_listmaps in your console to check. You also don’t need to edit any mapgroup or mapcycle files as CS2 will automatically create one for you.

How To Load A Single Map

If you want to play a single workshop map with friends, you only need to know the single Workshop Map ID. Using the Workshop ID from our example above, go to your server and type this into the console: host_workshop_map 3070288532. It will then load the map you want.

If you always want to load this map, then follow these steps.

  1. Go to your server in the Game Host Bros Panel and select Configuration > Startup Parameters.
  2. Make sure Workshop Type is set to Single Workshop Map.
  3. Select Workshop ID, and put your map ID in there and restart the server.

How To Update Workshop Maps

  1. Go to your server in the Game Host Bros Panel.
  2. Click Restart
