Valve has completely changed the rank progression in CS2 by introducing the CS Rating. If you’re still confused about how you stack up, this latest stat-based rank comparison may help.
CS Rating is simple, but it’s tough to tell precisely what number is considered decent. For example, you may see questionable plays at 5K Rating games, which can be confusing since it doesn’t seem like a terrible number. This rank comparison with CS Rating may help understand who you’re up against.
Credible stat site scope.gg has analyzed thousands of Counter-Strike 2 matches to find accurate CSGO rank equivalent of CS Ratings. If the CS rating is confusing initially, old players may use this info to tone their skills according to the opponent’s level.
CS Rating compared with CSGO ranks
Here’s what each CS Rating level means in terms of CSGO ranking, according to the stats:

|Silver I (S1)||1000-2445|
|Silver 2 (S2)||2445-3275|
|Silver III (S3)||3275-3695|
|Silver IV (S4)||3695-4108|
|Silver Elite (SE)||4108-4565|
|Silver Elite Master (SEM)||4565-4911|
|Gold Nova I (GN1)||4911-5367|
|Gold Nova II (GN2)||5367-6177|
|Gold Nova III (GN3)||6177-7054|
|Gold Nova Master (GNM)||7054-7951|
|Master Guardian I (MG1)||7951-8862|
|Master Guardian II (MG2)||8862-9734|
|Master Guardian Elite (MGE)||9734-10243|
|Distinguished Master Guardian (DMG)||10243-11248|
|Legendary Eagle (LE)||11248-12242|
|Legendary Eagle Master (LEM CSGO)||12242-13750|
|Supreme Master First Class (SMFC)||13750-15461|
|Global Elite CSGO (GE)||15461-30,000+|
This correspondence has been finalized after analyzing 453K matches in CS2, according to scope.gg. This means the questionable plays in the 5K rating are likely being executed by a Gold Nova. If you’re playing against a player with over 10K rating, you’re basically in a DMG lobby. Players with a 30K+ rating are the best of all, crème de la crème of CS2.
