With the standard configuration, Counterstrike: Global Offensive will populate the teams up to a maximum per team with bots to keep the teams balanced.
These bots are a quite easy, how can I make them more challenging?

Bot difficulty can be changed at the console and in the configuration files by changing the
bot_difficulty variable, which can be set to one of the following values:
Easy: 0 bot_difficulty 0 Normal: 1 bot_difficulty 1 Hard: 2 bot_difficulty 2 Expert: 3 bot_difficulty 3
There are also the following two commands which are supposed to re-scale bot difficulty depending on the average scores of the "human" players on the server;
bot_autodifficulty_threshold_low defaults to -2 bot_autodifficulty_threshold_high defaults to 0
bot_autodifficulty_threshold_low is the value used to determine that the bot needs to make itself harder, and
bot_autodifficulty_threshold_high is the value used to determine that the bot needs to make itself easier. These values can be set to any number between 20.0 and -20.0 but apparently this may be bugged.
