How to get into the Counter-Strike 2 Limited Test

To gain access to the Counter-Strike 2 Limited Test, you must be selected by the Counter-Strike 2 development team. A number of factors go into who is selected for the Limited Test, including playtime on Valve official servers, trust factor, and your Steam account standing.

If you are one of the chosen few who get to participate in the CS2 Limited Test, you’ll receive a notification in the main menu in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. Press the ‘ENROLL’ button on the main menu to download the game.

‘Steam account standing’ most likely means that your Steam account is free of any suspensions, bans, or negative flags. So, if you were VAC banned for cheating, don’t expect an invite any time soon. 

More players are slowly selected over time for the Limited Test, so those interested should make sure to check the main menu in CS:GO to ensure they don’t miss any potential invites.

As for what to expect in the Counter-Strike 2 Limited Test, Valve states it includes Deathmatch and Unranked Competitive Matchmaking on the Dust 2 map. However, future Limited Tests will offer more maps, modes, and features, so keep your eyes peeled for any updates.
