CS2 vs CS:GO Ranks

CS2 vs CS:GO Ranks

With the release of CS2 came the launch of an entirely new ranking system. CS2 ranks, at least for the most commonly played Premier mode of the game, are based on an ELO system called Counter-Strike Rating. Your rating points, like a rank in CS:GO, allow you to compare your skill to other players, and determine who you are teamed up with as well as who you are matched with in opposition. However, many players who have been playing Premier in CS2 want to know what their Counter-Strike rating would translate to in terms of CS:GO rankings. Luckily, we have compiled tons of research from different sources to determine what your CS2 ELO is equivalent to in terms of CS:GO ranks.

Grey Ranks: 1,000 to 4,999 Counter-Strike Rating


If your CS2 rating is between 1,000 and 4,999, you would likely be Silver in CS:GO. Here is how different ratings compare to CS:GO:

1,000-2,800: Silver 1

2,800-3,700: Silver 2

3,700-4,200: Silver 3

4,200-4,700: Silver 4

4,700-4,999: Silver 5

4,999-5,600*: Silver Elite Master

*Anything 5,000 rating and above is technically a light blue rank, but we will group it with the grey ranks as 4,999 aligns with that category.
