How much ammo do players have in CS GO?

Ammo in CSGO

In Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO), the amount of ammunition players have depends on the specific weapon they are using. Each weapon has its own magazine capacity and reserve ammunition. 


Here are some examples of ammunition counts for popular weapons in CS:GO:


  1. AK-47: The AK-47 assault rifle has a magazine capacity of 30 rounds and a reserve ammunition count of 90 rounds.
  2. M4A4: The M4A4 assault rifle, commonly used by Counter-Terrorists, has a magazine capacity of 30 rounds and a reserve ammunition count of 90 rounds.
  3. AWP: The AWP sniper rifle has a magazine capacity of 10 rounds and a reserve ammunition count of 30 rounds.
  4. Glock-18: The Glock-18 pistol, commonly used by Terrorists, has a magazine capacity of 20 rounds and a reserve ammunition count of 120 rounds.

It’s worth noting that different weapons may have different ammunition counts, and ammunition can be replenished by picking up weapons from the ground, purchasing ammunition in the buy menu, or having teammates drop weapons for you.


How do I replenish my ammo if I run out?

Bullets in CSGO

In Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO), there are a few ways to replenish your ammunition if you run out. 


Here are the main methods:

  1. Ammo Pickups: When an enemy player or teammate is killed, they may drop their weapon on the ground. By walking over the dropped weapon, you can pick it up and replenish both your ammunition and the weapon itself. Keep in mind that you can only pick up weapons that are compatible with your current team (Terrorists or Counter-Terrorists).
  2. Ammo Crates: In some game modes, such as certain custom maps or community servers, there may be specific ammo crates placed throughout the map. By interacting with these crates, you can refill your ammunition for all of your equipped weapons. These crates are usually indicated by distinct symbols or markings.
  3. Buying Ammo: During the buy phase or at specific buy zones on the map, you can access the buy menu and purchase additional ammunition for your weapons. Open the buy menu by pressing the appropriate key (default is “B”) and select the ammunition category to refill the ammo for your currently equipped weapons. Keep in mind that buying ammunition will deduct money from your in-game economy.
  4. Teammate Drops: If you have a teammate who has spare ammunition, they can drop their weapon for you. By standing near your teammate and pressing the “Use” key (default is “E”), you can pick up their weapon and obtain its ammunition. However, keep in mind that dropping weapons may have strategic implications, so communicate with your team before requesting a drop.


Remember to manage your ammunition carefully and plan your engagements to avoid running out of ammo at critical moments.

How to issue weapons through the CS:GO console?

In Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO), you can issue weapons through the console using specific commands. 


Here’s how you can do it:


  1. Open the console: To open the console, press the tilde key (~) on your keyboard. If the console doesn’t appear, make sure it is enabled in the game settings. You can also enable it by going to “Game Options” in the main menu, selecting the “Enable Developer Console” option, and setting it to “Yes.”
  2. Enable cheats (optional): If you want to issue weapons to yourself without any restrictions, you’ll need to enable cheats in the game. To do this, type “sv_cheats 1” in the console and press Enter. Note that enabling cheats will disable achievements for that session.
  3. Issue weapons: Once cheats are enabled (if desired), you can use the “give” command to issue weapons. The general syntax is as follows:


give weapon_weaponname

Replace “weaponname” with the specific weapon you want to give. 

For example:

  • “give weapon_ak47” to give an AK-47.
  • “give weapon_m4a1” to give an M4A1.
  • “give weapon_awp” to give an AWP sniper rifle.
  • “give weapon_glock” to give a Glock-18 pistol.


  1. After entering the command, press Enter to execute it. The weapon should appear in your inventory.
  2. Additional options: You can modify certain properties of the weapon using additional commands. For example:
    • “give weapon_ak47; ammo_grenade_limit_total 5” will give an AK-47 and set the maximum number of grenades you can carry to 5.
    • “give weapon_m4a1; give weapon_flashbang; give weapon_smokegrenade” will give an M4A1 and additional flashbang and smoke grenade.


Remember that using cheats and console commands is typically only available in offline or private server environments. Cheats are not allowed in competitive matchmaking or official game servers.
