Counter-Strike has been a beloved game among players for its intense competition and engaging community-driven servers. However, encountering connection issues and other annoying errors in Counter-Strike 2 with community servers can be frustrating.
This guide is here to help you troubleshoot and resolve the CS2 community servers not working issue.

How to join the community server using IP connect links
To join a community server using IP connect links, add the specific IP address to your favorites list through the "Favorites" tab in the server browser.

Presently, Valve has not provided a specific timeline for when community server support will be introduced. However, we remain hopeful that it will be added soon, as community servers are a vital component of CS games.
In the meantime, you can enjoy the game by playing offline with bots or participating in online matchmaking.
