Show Your Framerate In Counter Strike

It is actually very easy to measure your framerate in Counter Strike Source, follow the simple steps below

Join a server and begin playing

Open up the console in-game (usually pressing the ` key (the one above Tab)

Type “cl_showfps 1” (without the quotation marks)

Exit the console

Look in the top right hand corner of the screen – there should be a number in small font

The FPS rate will be either red (below 50 FPS), yellow (50-60 FPS) or green (more than 60 FPS)or white (more than 100 FPS)


  • To turn off the framerate, type “cl_showfps 0” (again, don’t type the quotation marks!)
  • If you are consistently having under 50 FPS, consider upgrading your graphics card.
  • Remember to watch your enemy more than the framerate or your team will get annoyed by your performance and you may be kicked.
