Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS: GO) builds on its original team-based action gameplay over 19 years ago.
The game introduces fresh maps, characters, weapons, and game modes, while also revitalizing classic CS content.
CSGO includes weapon skins and different types of knives that can be bought in the Steam marketplace and third-party sites.
The game also has a software called “Trust Factor” that assesses a player’s decency.
In this guide, you’ll learn how to see, find, or check your Trust Factor in CSGO matchmaking on Steam.
What is Trust Factor is CSGO?
Trust Factor is CSGO is a scoring system by Valve that determines a player’s decency.
If you have a high Trust Factor, you’ll be matched with other players who have a high Trust Factor.
If you have a low Trust Factor, you’ll be matched with other players who have a low Trust Factor.
Players who have a low Trust Factor are most likely reported by more than one player, don’t have Prime status, and used cheats before.
How to Check Your Trust Factor in CSGO
To check your Trust Factor in CSGO, you need to queue up for a competitive match with one or more of your friends.
When you’re queueing up, check if your Trust Score is different from each other by looking for a “Your matchmaking experience will be significantly affected” warning.
Here’s how to check your Trust Factor:
- Open CSGO and invite one or more friends to your lobby.
- Start queuing for a competitive match.
- If your friend has a lower Trust Factor than you, you’ll get a “Your matchmaking experience will be significantly affected” warning.
- If you have a lower Trust Factor than your friend, your friend will get a “Your matchmaking experience will be significantly affected” warning.
- No warning means that both you and your friend have a high Trust Score.
Having a lower Trust Score will negatively affect your matchmaking experience.
This means that you’ll either encounter toxic players, bad players, or cheaters.
If you think that you have a low Trust Factor by mistake, you can send an email to CSGOTeamFeedback@valvesoftware.com.
In the email, include a description of your experience and your Steam ID so that they can investigate.
