mp_items_prohibited is a console variable available in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. It is used to define a list of exact items or weapons that players cannot use or buy on a server. The command was introduced on 2017-03-24.

Tip.pngTip: To restrict armor, you can also use mp_max_armor.
Tip.pngTip: To restrict grenades, you can also use mp_buy_allow_grenades or ammo_grenade_limit_[...].
Tip.pngTip: To restrict weapon groups, you can also use mp_buy_allow_guns.


mp_items_prohibited "<i>,<j>,<k>,..."
mp_items_prohibited <i>,<j>,<k>,...

As value, it takes a string of comma-delimited weapon definition indices (numbers) to prohibit on the server. Example values are 1,2,3 or "1,2,3".

Note.pngNote: Avoid using spaces. When omitting the quotation marks, everything after the first space character is ignored. With quotation marks, spaces after a comma cause the next value to be invalid.

On successful prohibition, the game writes the names of the prohibited items in the console. Prohibited items cannot be bought and cannot be picked up; This is independent from an item's CanBePickedUp keyvalue. Items picked up before prohibition are unaffected, until they are dropped. To clear all prohibited items, use the value "" or 0.

Auto-equipped Items

For some inventory slots, players can equip different weapons. If the one they have equipped is prohibited, they will have an alternative auto-equipped. This concerns:

Warning.pngWarning: The auto-equipping does not work if the inventory is locked, e.g. during a competitive match! If prohibiting the Desert Eagle during a competitive match, players having the Desert Eagle equipped will see the R8 Revolver in the buy menu but cannot buy it. It requires a restart of the current match: mp_restartgame 1.
