There are many mysteries that no one in this world has ever been able to fully solve. The meaning of the bomb code in CSGO is one of these mysteries. There has been no real explanation about the meaning behind this that neither Valve nor Steam has made clear. However, there are a few theories that we can follow. These may or may not be logical, but it's as close as we have come so far.
In this blog on GlobalCSGO, we will explain the most popular theory that CSGO's community has been able to come up with. We will also show you a neat trick how you can change the bomb code in CS:GO, giving you a more unique feel to the game. You can either set it to what you wish or choose from a series of already made presets.

The Meaning Behind Counter-Strike's Bomb Code
You probably know this by now, as you've also probably played thousands of CS:GO matches. However, just for the sake of it, let's mention what the CSGO bomb code is and the meaning behind the digits. Officially, the code when you plan the bomb reads 7355608. It could just be a random series of numbers that Valve originally put together in a few seconds. However, many players are willing to bet their money on the fact that this was not random.
One CSGO fan, known as “Jo the fun”, came up with a theory to use the commonly known l33t language for gamers to decipher the explanation of the bomb code sequence in CS:GO. This system of modified spellings is a series of digits and symbols that are used to replace letters. When using l33t speak, the CSGO bomb digits translate into tessbob.
Now, when you look at it like this, tessbob means absolutely nothing to the untrained eye. However, when you flip it around and read it backward, this word spells bobsset. Again, even this word might not make a lot of sense but hold on, we're getting to the point. When played around with, bobsset can turn into Bobs' Set, which in addition has been turned into Bomb's Set. It might sound logical to some and not to others, but it's as logical as this explanation could get.
There are no new explanations behind this question. So, until someone comes up with a more logical conclusion, this is what we're left with to believe. Now that we have this figured out, one more question remains. “How can I change the CSGO bomb code?”
How to Change the CSGO Bomb Code?
Changing the bomb code in Counter-Strike Global Offensive won't make you play any better or win every single round. What it can do is make things just a bit more interesting. But, before we go ahead and show you how to change the code to whatever you wish, you should know that this is completely safe and won't result in your getting banned.
Changing the bomb code in CSGO doesn't change anything for other players, as you'll be the only one who see the new changes. Because of this, you're completely free to change it to whatever your heart desires. It won't make the explosive go boom faster, but it will make it more unique.
There are two options to change the bomb code in CS:GO. Let's have a look at both.
The first option is the simpler one. However, this one also leaves you more limited than the second, as you can only choose from a few pre-made bomb codes. If you want to change it with a click or two and not spend more time on this, then here is how to do it the easy way.
Step 1: Download the pre-made bomb code packs
Step 2: Preview the bomb codes
Step 3: Select a preset and click install
Step 4: When asked if you wish to replace the file, click “Yes”
And you're done. Now you can go ahead and open up CSGO and check if it's working. You can choose from only a few presets right from the source but at least it doesn't take a lot of time and work to get it done.
If you want a custom code of your own choosing, then it's best to try this method. Simply follow these steps and you will be able to name the bomb code in your game yourself.
Step 1: Download FontForge
Step 2: Download and prepare the available font file
Step 3: Launch the file and open the editor
Step 4: Replace each number of the code with a letter
Step 5: Press “File” and then “Generate Fonts”
Step 6: Click “Generate”
How to Type in the New Bomb Code?
This can be a bit tricky to learn, but it's actually pretty simple. All you have to do is replace the numbers with a letter. When the editor window opens, you will see that there are a bunch of letters below the original bomb code sequence. To type in a new code, you need to replace every number with a litter. You simply need to copy the letter and paste it at the number you wish to change.
You can also copy symbols, not just letters. If you want to put a space, just copy the empty block and paste it at the number you wish to remove. Now, the explosive in your game will look more unique and personalized.
Looking back at this, we've now established a theory about what this code means in the game. There are more signs regarding what it means but aren't as developed as this theory. Moving further, you now know the two best ways to customize the code on your own, without spending any money of course. Counter-Strike Global Offensive is a game with many surprises and customization features. Use these tips and tricks to make it a bit more unique. Next time you play as a terrorist, the experience will be a bit more enjoyable.
