After the rapid growth of the popularity of the game Counter-Strike: Global Offensive developers have introduced a lot of different things that were not in the previous parts. This is a set of stickers (stickers), graffiti, skins of weapons and knives, music sets, and gloves. At the beginning most gamers can not think about the value of these skins, but in time you will plunge into it with a head. Thanks to skins, you can earn good money by selling them or by trading (exchange of inventory items). It was this occasion that served to create a detailed guide about skins, knives, stickers, weapons and other attributes of the company, we will try to collect all the information so that you do not have to look for it on other information resources.


Let's note some moments concerning skins:

  • Skins are a drawing on a weapon or a knife. Weapons, regardless of whether they have a skin cs go or not, works the same.
  • The quality of your skin will not deteriorate after a long time using it. For example, if your weapon skin is of the quality "A bit shabby," then after one, two, three or more months, the quality will remain the same.
  • Skins can differ from each other by their rarity.
  • The rarest special items are knives. At the moment there are 10 types of knives with more than 50 skins.
  • Some skins have a StatTrakTM function that will count your killings from a particular type of weapon. All skins can be used in any game modes.
  • Drop skins is only at the end of the game.
  • There is an opportunity to buy skins on the Steam trading platform.

How can I get new skins in cs go?

As you may have noticed, the drop always occurs after the game expires. There is a certain timer, after zeroing which the drop of weapons, cases, graffiti is carried out. Drop is possible in three game modes: professional, DeatchMatch and normal (casual). Drop in the form of a container is a list of weapon skins, including skins of knives. To open the case and pull one of these skins out of it, you will need a key that you can buy both in the game and on the TP (trading floor). In addition to the keys on the trading floor, you can buy almost any game item, as they say would be only money and desire. An important detail about drop, it occurs only on official Valve servers or community servers. It is worth noting the fact that the speed of loss of game items will decrease if you spend a lot of time playing CS: GO.

Rarity of skins in cs go

Some skins in the game have a sufficient number, so the price for them is quite low, or vice versa, if the skin is rare - it will cost a lot.


The hierarchy of rarity of skins looks like this:

  • White color - consumer goods (the cheapest and most common);
  • light blue color - industrial quality;
  • dark blue color - army quality;
  • purple color - prohibited weapons;
  • pink-violet color - classified weapons;
  • red color - secret weapon;
  • unusually rare knife.

Weapons from cases can not drop like a drop at the end of the game. The chance of a knife falling out after opening a case is extremely small, as a drop it can not fall out either.

Also there are StatTrak-skins that have a counter of your killings with the current weapon. The loss of such skins occurs less often than conventional skins.

Let's make a note for such skins:
1) If your partner or rival raises your skin with a counter, then it will have an error instead of the number of keels.
2) These skins do not fall out at the end of the game, they can be bought or obtained from the container.
3) The StatTrak counter of the skin does not count the killing of bots.

Let's look at examples of skins based on a hunting weapons case. The skins in this case, like the others, range from a dark blue type to an unusually rare one.

Below is an example of the StatTrak skin. It is pink in color and is part of the Huntsman Case collection.

Here is an example of a rare knife. Absolutely all knives from cs go are rare in the game, but not all go with a statetrack. But despite this, the minimum price of a knife is at least $50.
