Want to get the Global Offensive Badge in Counter-Strike 2 and use it to add to your in-game profile? Then we've got you covered.
Late on 27 September 2023, Valve unleashed Counter-Strike 2. It was a day of celebration and nostalgia-induced sadness for the community as we bid farewell to CS:GO forever. In this guide, we will explain how you can get the Global Offensive Badge in Counter-Strike 2 and how you can equip it on your profile to commemorate over a decade of CS:GO.
How To Get Global Offensive Badge in CS2
Legends never die! That's the tagline for the Global Offensive Badge in Counter-Strike 2. It sports two unique sides, with the CT defuse logo on one side and the Terrorists' logo on the other side. It signifies the end of an era, and its description reads:
This badge commemorates loyal membership in the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive community prior to the release of Counter-Strike 2.
If you are as nostalgic as I am right now, then you will want to get the Global Offensive Badge and add it to your CS2 profile. To get the Global Offensive Badge in Counter-Strike 2, simply download the update (about 27 GB) and jump into the game. You will automatically receive this badge IF you've played CS:GO before the release of CS2 on 27 September 2023.
