Valve’s Counter-Strike:Global Offensive is known for it’s most aesthetic market place along with the insane FPS mechanics. Over these years CS:GO has transitioned into a famous Esports Title with a plethora of events being organized every year with some whopping prize pools unlike in the early days when it hadn’t attracted a formidable player base. But with Valve revamping the game in 2013 with some weapon spray aesthetics, we did witness a turn in the events when the Arms Deals update was inculcated in the game. Since then, these weapon skins have caught everyone’s eye as players did found them to be visually appealing provided with the fact that these skins won’t be adding any extra muscle power to your weapon. After the community market was set up for CS:GO, players did found themselves to grab up some skins from the market or would sell their equipped skins to go for some different kinds.
CS:GO has showered the community with many cases either dropped in matches or could be bought from the community market where each one of them would provide us with a unique skin from its the collection when opened. This doesn’t mean that every time you would get another one from the same but you could be hung upon a recurring chain. These skins are defined on the basis of their rarities where there are sorted into Eight different tiers. Among these tiers, the skin with the Consumer Grade tier would be the most common whereas the Contraband grade is the rarest among the hierarchy.
These skins would then be refined after their wear is determined, the specific variable for such kind of classification is known as the Float value. The lesser the Float Value, the better that specific skin would look and vice versa. So on a scale of 0.00x to 1.00 where the parameter 0.00x is considered as to be the lowest, it might be called as skin with negligible wear. But the ones with the value around 1.00 parameter, they might be called as the ones with the maximum amount of wear. If you take a look at the image attached below, one can easily determine the quality of the skin.
Among these various skins and their classes, we also do have a collection of knives where one can replace their default knife in-game with one from these collections. The fact about these knives is they can’t be used for melee attacks unlike other titles but you can definitely deal damage if you’re flanking the opposite force or to gain a fast movement speed by taking it out in your hand for quick rotation.
The above image depicts the collection from the Chroma Case which is available in the community market.
