mp_drop_knife_enable Command Help & Examples

The following command basically enables players to drop their knives when set to 1 (0 is the default, meaning players cannot drop their knives). It's worth noting that moving without a knife is faster than moving with one.

mp_drop_knife_enable <0 / 1>

The syntax for this knife drop command is as follows:

mp_drop_knife_enable <0 / 1>: 0 / 1 – if you Enter a 1 after this command, it will allow players to drop their knife (G to drop on default). If you enter a 0 after the command, you will disable this feature – which is the default setting.

All CS:GO Knife Commands | How to Test Any Knife in CS:GO

Fans of the CS:GO game will be well aware of all the enticing skins and items that are available for purchase on the marketplace. However, committing to a purchase can be daunting – considering some of the pretty huge price tags attached. Fortunately, within CS:GO, you are able to experiment with various knives in-game without spending a cent. This means that you can thoroughly assess each knife and make more informed decisions before investing your hard-earned cash.

Now you know how to drop a knife, we will walk you through the process of how you can test out every knife in CS:GO using customized CS:GO knife commands.

How to Test Knives in Counter-Strike

Testing knives in CS:GO is fairly simple as long as you’re familiar with the console commands. However, there are a few important considerations to keep in mind when using these commands.

Firstly, it’s essential to note that this method only works in custom games, and you won’t be able to use it in real online matches. If it were possible to show off rare items to all your friends with a simple command, then these items wouldn’t be so appealing and would thus lose their value.

Additionally, you have to spawn with the default knife. If you spawn with a purchased knife, the commands won’t work. While it won’t necessarily cause any issues either, the codes will simply fail to work and you’ll need to start a new match with the default knife.

Lastly, in the custom match, you’ll need to drop the default knife you initially spawned with (as per the command above) to make space for the new knife you wish to test. This process must be repeated each time you want to switch knives and test a different one.

Making a Custom Match

To set up a custom game:

  1. Open up the “Play” menu and select “Play With Bots.” You’ll need to make sure that the bot count is set to zero to avoid interruptions during knife testing.
  2. Next, open the developer console by pressing the tilde key (~) on your keyboard. If the console doesn’t appear, enable it in the “Settings” menu under the “Game” tab.
  3. Once the console is enabled, you can access it anytime using the tilde key.
  4. Enter the following commands to begin: Sv_cheats 1. This command will enable you to input the necessary commands to modify gameplay settings.

You may also want to extend the game timer to give you a little more time for knife testing. If this is the case, you can use the following command to do so:

  • mp_roundtime_defuse 60;mp_roundtime_hostage 60;mp_roundtime 60;mp_restartgame 1

Now, there’s one final command you will need to execute: you’ll need to drop your knife to make room for new knives to spawn. Enter the command below to enable knife dropping:

  • mp_drop_knife_enable 1

You’re now ready to start testing knives. Next, we’re going to show you the commands to spawn each knife.

CS:GO Knife Commands

Each knife has its own command to spawn it into your hands. Remember to drop your original knife before testing a new one, and drop each subsequent knife before spawning another. Once spawned, you can test each knife for as long as you like.
