Talking [FOUND] Hidden Third-Person Mode.

Hi Guys.

We've asked Valve and HPE before about any chance that Global Offensive will allow you to play in Third-Person Mode.

We were told an outright, NO!


But..


Valve and HPE may actually have been working on adding a Third-Person mode for CS: GO that they didn't want us to know about.


I have found that Third-Person Mode!


Code:
// ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
// thirdperson settings

sv_cheats 1

c_minpitch -60
c_maxpitch 90
c_minyaw -180
c_maxyaw 180
c_mindistance 30
c_maxdistance 600

cam_ideallag 0
cam_idealdelta 2

cam_collision 1
thirdperson_platformer 0
thirdperson_screenspace 1

// ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
// thirdperson helpers

alias tp_on     "thirdperson; alias tp_toggle tp_off"
alias tp_off    "firstperson; alias tp_toggle tp_on"
alias tp_toggle "tp_on"
alias tp_revert "revert cam_idealyaw; revert cam_idealdist; revert cam_idealpitch"
alias tp_reset  "cam_idealyaw 0; cam_idealdist 150; cam_idealpitch 0"

alias tp_toggle_platformer   "toggle thirdperson_platformer"
alias tp_toggle_screenspace  "toggle thirdperson_screenspace"

tp_reset

// ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

To use this new Third-Person Mode, follow these steps.

1. Copy the above code.

2. Open and paste the code into Notepad.

3. Save the file as: 'thirdperson.cfg' (without the ''s)

4. Place the file into your csgo/cfg folder (Usually found: Steam\steamapps\common\Counter-Strike Global Offensive\csgo\cfg)

5. Open Counter-Strike Global Offensive and join a server (sv_cheats has to be enabled)

6. Open your console and type in: 'exec thirdperson.cfg' (without the ''s)

7. Then all you have to do is type 'tp_toggle' into your console to toggle on/off Third-Person Mode. (You can also bind this command to a key if you wish)



With Third-Person Mode enabled it allows you to 'see around' corners and other areas of the map that you can not see in First-Person Mode.

Thanks and Enjoy!

Also the YouTube video description is invalid, it has been patched.

Third person mode exists in Counter-strike since 1999, but it has always been considered as a cheat (that's why you must set sv_cheats to 1).

I don't think valve is planning to make an "official" third person mode... sorry if i broke your hopes

Probably it has something to do with the Replay mode.

I doubt this is nothing more than left overs in the engine from other games. It would be stupid for CS to be 3rd person and has no place in the game.

It was hardly hidden, you can see them use third person in the trailer and the official screenshots of the game. I am sure there are people who like playing like this and I am sure they will appreciate the effort it took to find the commands to enable it. Personally, I hate third person shooters. I hated the third person mode they put in CoD, I didn't like it in Resident Evil 5 (they should have stuck to the emaing style of the original resi games) and it stopped me from playing the Uncharted series. For me it just doesn't feel right.
