Counter Strike 2 Server Locations
Counter Strike 2 is finally out and comes with multiple changes to the game we know and love. New graphics and new mechanics, but what isn’t new is that lag still sucks. One of the main causes of lag is the server you connect to when searching for a game. If you are connecting to a far away server, the game data that travels between your PC or console and the game server takes longer. This is what causes an increase in ping.
What are the Best CS2 Servers?
The best servers to connect to are dependant on where in the world you live. Using the map graphic we have created from testing CS2, you should be able to see one or more servers that are close to your home location. These local servers will give you the lowest ping and therefore will be the best servers to connect to for the smoothest gameplay.
The next question is, how do you only connect to those local, low ping servers? That’s where DumaOS comes in. Our powerful Geo-Filter feature is the only way to ensure you’ll play on the servers you want, every game. By creating a filter around your home location that includes the local servers, it ensures you’ll only play on those servers. It does this by blocking connection to servers outside of your filter.
We made the CS2 map graphic using another one of our features – Ping Heatmap. This feature will give you even more information about the CS2 game servers. Including the ping you will have when connecting to them, regular updates to server count and locations and much more.
One last thing to consider, even when playing on a local server, is the server status. If you are experiencing lag or issues finding a game, it may be due to server issues. You can check the status of CS servers here to see if anyone else is experiencing issues. If the servers are experiencing problems or under heavy load it may effect your connection quality until the game developers find a fix.
