Counter strike - Set the weapon to right hand side

October 2017

Counter Strike (or CS) is a shooter game that is a quite popular video game. In this game, there are several moves and the gamers have the opportunity to customize their skills to play more aggressively. One can set various poses for more skilful play, like setting their weapon to the right side. This type of move can be set in the CS game, with the help of certain commands that have to be entered in the game console.


I am trying to set the weapon to the right hand side while playing Counter Strike.


  • Enable the console: Options > Keyboard > Advanced Options
  • Check 'Enable Developer Console' and select a keyboard shortcut
  • During game play, open the console and use this command:
    • cl_righthand 1
  • From now on your gun should be on the right
