CS2 Text Bug: Causes and Solutions

Have you seen unreadable text in Counter-Strike 2 (CS2)? You're not alone. This CS2 text bug is annoying but I've got you covered with explanations and fixes.

What's causing the CS2 text bug?

The issue is with how CS2 handles text. The game uses variables like #CSGO_Setting_Audio to represent text which are then replaced with the actual words (e.g. "Audio Settings") by the game's interface. The bug happens when these variables don't get replaced properly.

A common reason is the ColorMod language pack. It worked fine in CS:GO but doesn't play nice with CS2's new text rendering system.

How to fix the CS2 text bug:

  1. Open Steam
  2. Right-click on CS2 in your library
  3. Select "Properties"
  4. Go to the "Launch Options" section
  5. Remove the -language parameter if it's present
  6. Save and close the properties window
  7. Launch CS2

This should fix the text bug for most players. If you're still having issues try verifying your game files or reinstalling CS2 as a last resort.

I will also provide a quick video tutorial so that you can easily follow the steps to fix this text bug in CS2.
