Playing video games is a great way to spend some time. However, you won’t always have much free time to play video games. It is a good idea to know how long a match of CSGO can take so you know precisely how many CSGO matches you can play. To explain that in detail, here is our take on how long is a CSGO game.
Let’s talk about the game mode you might be interested in learning the most or the ranked game mode. A typical ranked game mode will take around 40 to 45 minutes. However, you should add about 5 to 10 minutes because it might take that long to queue up and find a match.
With that said, you can also finish a ranked match within 30 minutes if either you or the enemy team quickly wins all the rounds. However, a ranked match can take much longer than an hour to complete. One round lasts 1 minute and 15 seconds, it takes 40 seconds for a planted bomb to explode, and there can potentially be 31 of these rounds. All of that adds up to around 1 hour and 17 minutes.
It is unlikely for a ranked match to take 1 hour and 17 minutes. However, combining the time it takes you to find a match, it can easily take over an hour to start and play a ranked match. In short, you need to have at least 1.5 hours if you want to play a ranked match.
