buy is a non-cheat command for players to purchase weapons and equipment with their funds while they are allowed to buy, i.e. if the mp_buytime hasn't expired yet and if they are inside a func_buyzone.

Note.pngNote:The command buy also exists in Counter-Strike, Counter-Strike: Condition Zero and Condition Zero Deleted Scenes but simply opens the buy menu. For that purpose, Counter-Strike: Source and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive have the command buymenu instead.
Confirm.pngConfirm: Does Condition Zero Deleted Scenes actually have a buymenu that will pop up, or is the command vestigial there?


buy <item alias>

If the command is invoked with invalid or no arguments, it prints a list of valid arguments.

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive There is the alternative syntax buy <?> <int>.
