Counter-Strike Workshop

The Counter-Strike community has a long history of creating custom content. Browse the workshops and help identify the best community created maps, weapon finishes, and stickers. Follow your favorite authors, give them feedback and rate their work. The highest rated maps, weapon finishes, and stickers have the best chance to be included in CS2. These contributors will not only receive our recognition and adoration but also a split of their items' sales (otherwise known as money).
