Right below the game event update text, at the bottom-left corner of your screen in Counter-Strike 2, you will see some build info text, including date and time. Some players might want to remove the build info from their screen in CS2, and we are here to help.
In this no-nonsense guide, we explain the easy steps you can take to hide the Counter-Strike 2 build info, so let's pop a flash grenade and peek around the corner for some knowledge!
How To Hide Date/Time Build Info in CS2
First up, the build info we are talking about is in the bottom-left corner of your screen. This info is basically the date/time when the latest Counter-Strike 2 update was released. While it is far away from any heads you might want to click, some players find this annoying and want a completely clear screen.
- Launch Counter-Strike 2 via Steam.
- Open the dev console using the tilde key "~" on your keyboard. It is generally located on the left side of your keyboard next to the "1" key.
- Type in "r_show_build_info false"
- Press Enter.
Congratulations, you've hidden the build info in CS2! To revert back and show it again, follow the same steps above but use the command line "r_show_build_info true". It is as simple as that!
