Disable Spectator Mode in Counter Strike

When you are playing Counter Strike and you die, you will automatically switch to spectator mode (if you were not the last player on your team). For whatever reason, you may decide that you no longer want this feature on your server. To disable spectator mode on your CS server, proceed as follows:

  • Open a console and type:
    • mp_allowspectators <0>
  • To set it back, use this command:
    • mp_allowspectators <1>
