Managing your economy is crucial for playing a competitive game like CSGO. If you’re buying everything when your team called for an eco round, you’re doing it wrong. That’s why, it’s often more convenient to just set up buy binds for eco, semi-buy and full buy rounds. You can also choose to manually buy every single round, but that’s too much of a hassle when your weapons are just one button away from you.


There are two kinds of primary buy binds in the game. First are the basic binds which assign a key to buying a certain weapon, and then comes the more advanced binds and aliases, which enable you to buy everything you need in a certain round.

Here’s everything you need to know about setting up your own buy binds in CSGO.

Basic Binds

These are the binds you’re probably already familiar with – you press a button (say, F1) and you get a specific weapon. They aren’t the best uses for your keys, but can still be convenient at times when you’re looking to save an extra click.

If you’re looking to set up such a bind yourself, you need to get acquainted with weapon codes first. Each weapon has a code which can be entered into the console to buy that weapon. This steam community guide showcases every weapon code you’ll need in a competitive game of CSGO.

Select the code you need from the list below, then assign a buy command to it from the console. For instance if you want to assign X to buy the Desert Eagle, type the following in the console or paste it in the config:

Bind X “buy deagle”

You can replace X with other keys and deagle with other weapons. Below are the codes of different weapons in the game.

Advanced Binds

These are the binds that’ll actually make life easier for you. You’ll be able to buy an entire round’s worth equipment with the press of a single button.

In order to make one of these binds, all you need to do is separate your buy commands with a semicolon (;) and paste them into your config.

Let’s categorise your buys into three parts and take a look at the corresponding keybinds.

Eco Bind: bind F1 “buy p250” (assuming that’s all you’re gonna buy for an eco)

Semi-buy bind: bind F2 “buy ump45; buy vest; buy flashbang; buy smokegrenade”

Full-buy bind: bind F3 “buy ak47; buy m4a1; buy vesthelm; buy flashbang; buy smokegrenade; buy hegrenade; buy molotov; buy incgrenade; buy defuser”

Or, if you’re an AWPer,

bind F3 “buy awp; buy vesthelm; buy flashbang; buy smokegrenade; buy hegrenade; buy molotov; buy incgrenade; buy defuser”

Taking a look at the above-mentioned binds, you’ll easily get the idea on how to alter your binds accordingly to fit your needs. Remember to paste the binds in your config or autoexec files, or they’ll disappear and you’ll have to do them again.
