How to Get CS2 Beta Invite

To get a CS2 beta invite, you need to have the Prime Status Upgrade and be in a competitive skill group.

If you’re eligible, you’ll receive an invitation where you can select “Enroll” and start your download.

When the download is complete, download CSGO and select “Limited Test”.

If you haven’t received an invitation even though you meet all of the requirements, you can try verifying the integrity of the game files.

Here are 3 ways to get a CS2 beta invite:

  • Method 1: Get the CSGO Prime Status Upgrade on Steam.
  • Method 2: Play a few competitive games and be placed in a competitive skill group.
  • Method 3: Open your Steam Library > right-click CSGO > Properties > Installed Files > Verify Integrity of Game Files > Launch CSGO.

If you still haven’t gotten a CS2 beta invite, you need to wait until you get one.

Unfortunately, the invitation is only rolled out to a limited number of players.

Hence, if you didn’t get an invite, you need to wait until its rolled out to you.
