The game console doesn't detect hidehud 1 and drawhud 0 (or cl_hidehud/cl_drawhud) commands, these may have worked in the past before the game was transferred to OpenGL.
"Cheats" are probably required, can be enabled with sv_cheats 1 command.

    I have to ask are you using any arguments when you are entering in any of your commands? Because I know a lot of source games require an argument in console commands.

    Try hud_draw 0 it's been a while since I've played those but it was something_something. Apr 11, 2017 at 15:01

1 Answer 1


The hud_draw 0 should do the trick just fine for you.

Should you require to also remove the crosshair, then crosshair 0 will help.

  • The command indeed doesn't require sv_cheats.
