It is really hard to get anything valuable out of those cases so a lot of gamers prefer alternative options like csbet opening case site. But some of them were lucky and they got away with thousands of dollars by just opening a case. Which are the most expensive CS:GO skins? Keep reading and find out.
ST M4A4 Howl
According to Twitter user ohnePixel, the most expensive CS:GO skin ever sold was 4x IBP 0.003 StatTrak M4A4 Howl from the Huntsman Collection. The item was apparently bought by a Chinese collector for more than $100,000. We don’t know the actual price as it was never confirmed.
However, the regular StatTrak version of this skins is worth around $3000. But why is this virtual item worth so much? Back in 2014 Valve decided to add Huntsman Collection case.
This case contained items made by the community. So, any member of the community was able to upload their ideas to the Steam workshop and if they get enough upvotes, their weapon will end up in the new collection. After receiving 4500 upvotes, Howl was added as a Covert rarity weapon to the new case. Artists behind it, Auzzi and sic received a small amount of profit from every transaction of that box.
Later, CanisAlbus, the original artist behind the Howl’s design, filled a DMCA takedown notice. Valve had to remove Howl from the cases but they couldn’t take it away from players that already had it in their inventories. Therefore, the skin was redesigned to avoid plagiarism and it can’t be opened in any case anymore. There are only a few StatTrak versions of this weapon and it is so rare that it is becoming more and more expensive every year.
AK-47 | Case Hardener
One of the oldest skins in the game and a part of first-ever CS:GO Weapons case. The value of this skin depends on the float of each skin. It is a unique skin because it’s blue, gold, and silver gues change depending on the float. The bluer the skin is, the higher the price. One anonymous buyer from China bought a #1 patter with float equal to 1 for a whopping $25,000.
StatTrak Bayonet | Crimson Web
Knives are always expensive. Even the cheapest knife in this game will cost you around $50. StatTrak Bayonet | Crimson Web is the rarest knife in this game. It is really hard to get this skin out of a case and there are only two knives in the circulation. The price of a single one is estimated to be around $30,000.
AWP | Dragon Lore
The rarest CS:GO skin is surely AWP called Dragon Lore. The regular price of this weapon is around $1000. However, there are special editions of this weapon with souvenir stickers attached to it.
