CS:GO has been around for about eight years now and while the game still has a very expansive following, there are a few bits of Valve’s popular FPS that border on being archaic in design. One of these being the video replay controls that are supposed to allow players to re-watch their old games so that they can clip funny moments or to evaluate their individual performances.
The Demo mode, as it is officially called, looks about as old as Counter-Strike itself to the average joe it can look a little like a bit of an annoyance to handle. However, we will try our best to explain how to use it.
To access the Demo mode you first need to pull up the command console in the game. Once there simply type “demoui” into the text box and the Replay interface should appear on your screen. You can also do this by pressing Shift and F2 on your keyboard, as shown in the video clip above. Once the dashboard has appeared on your screen you can play around with any of your pre-recorded footage that you saved from a previous game.
And there you have it, everything you need to know about how to access the replay controls in CS:GO. Run wild to your hearts content.
