FPS Drops on Faceit

Playing CSGO on Faceit platform, gamers quite often face the issue with significant drop of FPS (simultaneously for all players, who are present on the server). It feels like you are imposed to restrictions in 100 or less FPS, as a result it is getting practically impossible to play. Herein, the worse your computer is, the more likely your FPS will get worse as well.

FPS Drop

Some players have no idea how to handle this issue, taking a pause in panic, then restart the game with the hope that it will fix the issue. In most cases it actually can, however, the problem may catch you in surprise, most players simply don’t have enough time for these manipulations, since the game might be loading very slowly, and you can simply lose a few rounds because of this, in the end you will lose the match as well.

FPS may also drop by constantly pressing keyboard shortcut ALT+TAB, i.e. due to repeated opening and closing the game tab. It is well-known, the more you close and open CSGO, the more your productivity is likely to decrease. This will continue until the game will switch to new game engine - Source 2.

How to Fix CSGO FPS Lag

Everything is done with the help of just a few console commands. Formerly, commands like rcon и rcon_address 1 were also available, later on they were switched off on Faceit servers.

At the present moment, the only way to fix FPS Drop is to use commands for recording POV Demo. Commands are working only during Freezetime, i.e. in the beginning of each round. In order to fix FPS Lag, just enter command record 1, where 1 stands for the name of Demo, and after that enter stop command. These two commands will always remain on Faceit servers and will regularly fix FPS drops.
