How to turn off fps in Counter Strike 2

In order to turn off fps in Counter Strike 2, you need to enter the same command, but instead of 1, type 0. After that, the number in the corner will disappear. However, we don’t recommend that you disable fps, as it doesn’t take up much space, and helps you keep track of your device’s performance.

Numerous factors affect your fps, from gunshots to grenade explosions. If you enable fps, you will be able to see what exactly causes fps drops and find out how to deal with them. Don’t be afraid to lower your graphics, as this may help you make the game feel smoother and improve your gaming experience.
