How to download and watch a CS:GO demo
Navigate to the matchroom of the game you want to watch. Ensure the game was played within the last 30 days.
Locate the ‘Watch demo’ button positioned in the middle of the match page and press it to download the file.
Our demos are compressed so you’ll need to use software such as WinRAR to uncompress the file.
Remember the name of the demo. You will then need to navigate to the location of downloads on your computer, find the file you just downloaded, right-click it and press ‘Open with WinRAR’ (or the corresponding software you installed to uncompress the file).
Select the folder where your CS:GO folder is located and extract the file there, for example - C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Counter-Strike Global Offensive\csgo
Open your CS:GO and press ‘Shift & F2’ to open up the demo player. Press the ‘Load’ button.
Find the demo from the list, select it and press open to load the match and watch the demo.
