Learn Buy Menu and Prices

Those 30 seconds you have before a round are not the time for surfing the purchase interface and looking for something you could buy. Your brain should be busy answering “What do we need right now?”, not “Where’s that M4A4?” or “Is that enough for AWP?”

Take your time to explore the menu without the pressure of being in the middle of a match. For example, you can practice with bots and focus on weapon purchases. Make the opponents less skilled or use other settings through various CS:GO bot commands to decrease the tension but still keep the process interesting.

You also might consider using CS:GO console commands that directly affect the buying process:

  • mp_buytime 30 — set the value in seconds to have more time in the buy menu.
  • mp_buy_anywhere 1 — activate this option (with the value 1) to have access to the “shop” anywhere on the map. The value 0 returns you to the default setting.

Combine the buy menu learning with memorizing the prices. You should be able to see the money on your account directly as weapon possibilities. “I have this amount, so I’ll buy that gun.”

It’s ok to feel overwhelmed with numbers at the beginning. In general, you don’t need to remember every single price. Direct your attention to the weapons you personally use most of the time.

And again, let us remind you that in-game prices are a totally different topic to skin prices. More information on what affects the economy of cosmetic in-game items can be found in our CS:GO float guide.
