I downloaded a map from the workshop for CSGO (I'm got it from steam.) And I like the map, but I would like to play deathmatches on it and it does not allow the deathmatch game mode by default. I know it is possible to change the game mode to deathmatch with the console while I'm in a match, but I would like to set the game mode before I start the match as I would any other mode. So how would I do this?

  • Have you tried anything before? There are several ways to setup game modes/types before loading the map, but I'm not sure about custom maps which are not designed for that. You can set game mode & type in your command line or in a map specific config (or even in your real config, if you wish to do so).

  • You could try contacting the creator as they can easily change it to a deathmatch map.

You can forcibly execute a deathmatch game by typing this command in console:

game_mode 2;game_type 1;exec gamemode_deathmatch

You should also restart the match after typing that in. Type mp_restartgame 1 to restart.
