Counter Strike 2D is a top down, two dimensional adaptation of the popular game Counter Strike, and like Counter Strike, there are a few things that can be done to lower ping during game play of Counter Strike 2D. Ping is the round trip time for a packet to be sent from your computer, received by the server and then sent back from the server to your computer. Lowering the round trip time is done by maximising the amount of bandwidth available to send and receive packets.

Check to see if any other programs on your computer are using bandwidth that could otherwise by used by Counter Strike 2D. Hold down the Ctrl, Alt and Del keys, click Start Task Manager, and then go to the Networking tab. If network utilisation is more than 1 or 2 per cent, look for any programs that are running that might be using bandwidth. File sharing programs like uTorrent, for instance, commonly use large amounts of bandwidth.
Open Counter Strike 2D and go to the server selection screen. Look at the names of the servers. Many of them give some sort of geographical information about where the server is physically located. If possible, select a server that is close to where you live, because these servers will tend to have a lower ping than those located farther away.
Ask any room mates or family members that you share Internet with to stop using bandwidth or limit the amount of bandwidth they are using, for instance by turning off file sharing programs. The larger amount of bandwidth available will improve ping speeds in games like Counter Strike 2D.
Talk to your Internet service provider about upgrading the speed of your Internet connection if nothing else works. Some forms of Internet connection, like dial-up for instance, are not suited to playing online video games, and a faster connection will help to lower ping speeds.
