CRAN status Lifecycle: experimental

R client for accessing Steam’s REST API specifically for the Counter-Strike Global Offensive Game (CS Go) data. Check out the Steam documentation website for more information.

Package Functionality

The goal of CSGo is to provide an easy way to connect and pull data from the Steam API specifically for the Counter-Strike Global Offensive Game (CS Go).

Responsible use

The CSGo package should be used in strict accordance with Steam Api Terms of Use.


To get the current released version from CRAN:


To get the current development version from GitHub:

# install.packages("devtools")


The first step to use the CSGo package is to have your own credentials (API key) to pull the CSGo data from the Steam API.

For more information about how to get your own API Key run in your R vignette("auth", package = "CSGo").

Now that you already have your API Key you should be able to collect your own CSGo data as well as your friends’ data.


# to get my own statistics
my_stats <- get_stats_user(api_key = 'your_key', user_id = '76561198263364899')

# to get the statistics of all my "public" friends
friends_stats <- get_stats_friends(api_key = 'your_key', user_id = '76561198263364899')

PS: Take a look at the vignette("usecase", package = "CSGo") to get some ideas.
