Rarest Skins in CS:GO
In Counter Strike: Global Offensive, skins have become one of the most important aspects of the game. They have become such a big part that websites have even developed their entire gambling system around them. However, although it may seem like skins are in abundance, there are very rare skins that only a few people have.
In a lot of cases, the price of the skin correlates to the rarity of it. For example, a P250 Sand Dune is one of the cheapests skins, going for just 3 cents a pop. This is because they have a high chance of dropping from a game or a case. However, it’s not always like this. In many cases, an item can be quite common, but a certain pattern can make the weapon expensive.
Karambit | Case Hardened
The Karambit | Case Hardened is one of the most well known skins in the game. However, they aren’t very expensive, with the battle-scarred variety going for about $340. However, they can get much more expensive than that. The case hardened pattern is one of the most risky patterns. Price is determined by how much blue is on the skin from the player’s perspective. The more blue, the higher the price. One blue gem sold for $15000 to TurboMotionZ, a popular YouTuber. Skin patterns like these are very rare, and the odds of getting a blue gem are very slim.
AWP | Dragon Lore
Everybody that has played Counter Strike: Global Offensive has heard of the legendary skin. The Dragon Lore is one of the most sought after skins in the game. They are extremely rare, and they only dropped .0004% of the time. While the cheapest ones are around $900. In the start of 2018, one sold for a whopping $61052.63. Now, while this skin was souvenir and factory new, the pattern of the Dragon Lore still stands as one of the rarest and prettiest in the game.
M4A4 | Howl
The Howl is one of the most well known skins throughout the game. With the well-worn variety going for just about $1400, one of these skins is enough to drain your bank account. For one of the reasons that the Howl has such a high price tag is because it is a contraband skin. This means that the skin can no longer be dropped or opened from cases. When people get trade banned with Howls on their account, the price increases, as the amount in the market ecosystem decreased. This makes it one of the rarest skins.
The chances of getting the skins in this article are insanely low, or not even possible without buying one. So don’t get your hopes up for opening a $15000 blue gem Karambit, but you never know; you may just be that lucky!
