How to Delete Your Counter-Strike Account
Do you want to delete CS:GO permanently from your computer and stop playing it? Then you are probably wondering how you can delete your Counter-Strike account.

Two Options to Delete Your Counter-Strike Account
The thing with Counter-Strike is that it’s tied to Steam, so deleting your Counter-Strike account might not be as straightforward as you might think.
Essentially, you’re going to have to pick from one of the two options:
- Ask Steam to delete Counter-Strike from your Steam account
- Delete your Steam account
The second option is far more radical since you’re going to lose all of your other games and stuff you have on your Steam account. But it’s also far more effective.
The first option is also decent, but one of the problems with it is that you can always easily add Counter-Strike back to your account at any time.
In December 2018, the game is fully free to access and play for anyone, so you can easily add it back to your account for free. This means that if you want to fully delete your Counter-Strike account, the most effective option is to delete your Steam account.
Let’s take a look at how to do both.
Option 1: Ask Steam to Delete Counter-Strike from Your Account
You can opt to delete your game from your Steam account so you can never access it again unless you add it back.
The way you do this is you need to go to the Steam Support page and request them to remove Counter-Strike from your account.
Here’s how you do it.
- Go to the Steam Support page
- Log in to your account using your Steam credentials
- From the list of your games, choose “Counter-Strike: Global Offensive” (or another version of Counter-Strike).
- Scroll down and select “I want to permanently remove this game from my account”.
- Last but not least, select “OK, remove the listed games from my account permanently”.
Note that if you choose this option, you should also delete the game from your computer for the changes to take full effect.
Option 2: Delete Your Steam Account
Deleting your Steam account will be a more effective solution, but also more radical. You’re going to lose all of your games and achievements if you select this option.
Deleting your Steam account is quite straightforward. You can do it from your account’s settings, but there are some steps along the way that might seem a bit complicated.
That’s why we’ve prepared a full guide on how to delete your Steam account along with a video showing you the steps you need to take.
