How to Initiate a Self-Kicking Procedure in CS2

how to kick yourself in CS2

In CS2, you can use the command callvote kick to attempt to kick someone. If enough people vote “Yes”, that person will be kicked from the game.

The first step is to make sure that your Developer Console is activated. You can check by going to Settings and selecting the Game tab. That’s where you’ll find it. If it’s activated, just open it inside a game using ~. Then use the status command to find the ID number associated with yourself.

Next, type this in the Developer Console: callvote kick YOUR_ID. If enough players vote to kick you, you will get kicked from the match. One way to ensure that your wish will be granted is to talk to them before initiating the vote.

Tell them that you need to leave for some reason and they might be willing to let you go amiably. A tougher way to get them to kick you is to misuse your bullets or grenades. Or to hide when you should be fighting the opposite team. If you annoy them enough or waste a lot of time, they will kick you without regrets.

Please note, however, that this second method is not recommended, because it might affect your hidden Trust Factor.


Leaving a match early in Counter-Strike 2 is never fun. But sometimes you might be forced to do it by various circumstances. When that happens, it’s always a good idea to try to get yourself kicked.
