I just had an excellent 4-headshot round with a scout that I'd like to take another look at. Is there a way to do this?

I know you can record demos manually, but I don't want to always record my matches as that takes a lot of effort and disk space. Is there functionality similar to lastreplay.rep in SC:BW that autosaves your last demo and overwrites it automatically?

  • CS:GO does not automatically record demos...... But you can record one manually by typing "record <name" into console, stop recording by typing "stop", and play it back by typing "playdemo <name>". Keep in mind- Demo's are very buggy.

Click to the Your Matches button

  1. Click to the Your Matches button.

Pick a match, and hit the download button

  1. Pick a match from the left-hand side of screen, and hit the download button on right top.

The demo will be now downloaded.


In a recent update (October 2013) a watch feature was added to CS:GO. Now it is possible to download and then watch your eight last competitive matches.
