Error Codes
Code Description
1 Improper Parameter Structure
2 Invalid Inspect Link Structure
3 You may only have X pending request(s) at a time
4 Valve's servers didn't reply in time
5 Valve's servers appear to be offline, please try again later!
6 Something went wrong on our end, please try again
7 Improper body format
8 Bad Secret
Example Error
	"error": "Valve's servers didn't reply in time",
	"code": 4

If using a /bulk request and the error only applies to a specific inspect link, the returned response for it will be replaced while other inspect links will be processed normally. If the error applies to the entire request (ie. bad post body), it will return a root-level error as shown above.

How to Install

In order to retrieve float values for weapons in this way, you must have Steam account(s) with a copy of CS:GO. Each account can request 1 float per second. CSGOFloat allows you to have as many bots as you'd like by inputting the login info into config.js.

Each instance of CSGOFloat can operate around 300 accounts. It is recommended to either configure a Postgres server or setup another cache such as Varnish or Nginx in front of your server.


Pull the image from docker and mount the config directory

docker pull step7750/csgofloat:master
docker run -d --name csgofloat -v /host/config:/config -p 80:80 -p 443:443 step7750/csgofloat:master

The first time you start the docker container, it'll copy the config.js file to the config directory and stop. You'll need to edit this file and include your bots login information and then start the docker again. See the section How to First Login a Bot for further info.

Make sure you configure a Postgres server to use for caching!


Requires Node.js v14+!

Clone the repo (or npm install csgofloat) and install the Node.js dependencies using npm install or yarn install in the root directory.


  1. Copy config.example.js to config.js
  2. Add your bot(s) login information to config.js
  3. Edit config.js with your desired settings
  4. Ensure Postgres is running if you've set it's database url
  5. Run node index.js in the main directory
  6. How to First Login a Bot
  7. Navigate to the IP that the server is hosted on and query the API using the docs above!

How to First Login a Bot

Note: If the bot has never logged into the steam client before and doesn't have Mobile 2FA enabled (fresh account), you can just input the username and password and it should successfully log in without email 2FA

If your bot doesn't own CS:GO, CSGOFloat will automatically try to obtain a license for it during startup.

  • Using Email 2FA
    • Only fill in the user and pass fields for the bot (make sure the auth field is empty or removed)
    • Start up CSGOFloat
    • It will tell you that an auth code was sent to your email
    • Input the code from your email into the auth field for the bot
    • Restart CSGOFloat
    • It should successfully login and create machine auth token files for each account in the current node-steam-user config directory
    • The auth field can now be optionally removed in your login file for further logins
  • Using Mobile 2FA
    • Fill in the user and pass fields for the bot
    • Fill in the auth field with the shared_secret for the bot
    • Start up CSGOFloat
    • It should successfully login and create machine auth token files for each account in the current node-steam-user config directory
    • You'll need to keep the auth field filled in for future logins

Breaking Changes

v3.0 -> v4.0

  • MongoDB is no longer supported, use Postgres instead
  • Socket.io access is no longer supported
  • Built-in HTTPS handling has been removed, reverse proxy to HTTP instead

v2.0 -> v3.0

  • Since we now use node-steam-user instead of node-steam, the sentry folder location now depends on your system. If you'd like to migrate sentry files from v2.0 rather than having to reauthenticate email 2FA accounts, you'll need to copy your sentry files and rename them to match node-steam-user's format
  • allow_simultaneous_requests has now been replaced by max_simultaneous_requests. You can set max_simultaneous_requests to -1 to allow an infinite amount of simultaneous requests by the same IP.
