Dota 2 – How to Hide the HUD (2021)

Ever since the Source 2 Reborn update, the old script still floating on the internet used to hide the HUD has not worked. This is the newest way of hiding the HUD.

Hide the HUD / Script

Create the File

Copy and paste the below text block into a new .cfg file named hidehud.cfg

// TOGGLE BUTTON (Hides UI but doesn't hide cursor, 
//                demo controls, or neutral item pickups)
bind "'" "toggle_ui"


// TOGGLE BUTTON (Hides UI AND hides cursor, but not
//                demo controls, or neutral item pickups)
bind "/" "toggle_ui2"


// TOGGLE BUTTON (Hides entire HUD and UI including the console 
//                window)
bind "." "toggle_entire_hud"
