Counter-Strike 2 has a feature called item drops, as a result of which players receive skins and other items useful in the game. This is a certain bonus that the player receives as a result of a completed mission or activity. In this article from Volodymyr Huda, you will learn about the features of skins drops in the game, as well as the best cases to open in 2024. You can learn even more about the settings in the game and also use Steam account lookup on the Profiler website.

Dropping Skins in CS2: How it Works

According to statistics, CS2 players open more than 25,000,000 cases within a month. Weekly drops of items in the game are available only to Prime account holders. You can get the case if you have at least 5000 experience points. When the rank scale is full, the player will have 4 cells, each of which has different drops. They may contain skins, graffiti, or cases. Judging by player reviews, there is 1 case, 2 guns, and 1 graffiti to choose from. You can get any 2 items that appear in the main menu immediately after finishing the match.

A Rarity of Skins That Drop in the Game

Skins in CS2 are cosmetic items that affect the appearance of a weapon but do not affect its capabilities and characteristics.

Skins of Consumer quality often drop out, and this is understandable since they are the cheapest and have the lowest quality. Their appearance is far from perfect. Skins with this quality do not have pleasant visual effects or any interesting features. Despite this, it can be used in contracts to obtain better weapons. Just like any other skin, skins with Consumer grade can be sold on trading platforms or transferred to other players.

Players often receive Industrial quality skins. They are also inexpensive, like Consumer skins, but they look a little better (although very far from ideal).

Mil-Spec rarity skins can be easily obtained from cases (70% chance). They are distinguished by not too bright colors and are similar to these. The details of the skin are difficult to see from a distance: this can only be done by holding the skin in your hands. Typically, Mil-Spec level skins are marked with a dynamic pattern and a pattern that is the same over the entire area of the body.

Lucky players will receive skins of Classified quality: the chance of getting them through drops is quite small. Their price is higher than all the categories described above. Such objects have a distinct pattern and bright colors that are clearly visible even from a distance. Skins of Classified quality are obtained mainly on websites or trading platforms.

Other Ways to Get Skins Besides Drops

Are you not getting skins of the quality you need? There are other ways to get them.

  • Exchange via Steam. If you have some skins at your disposal, you can try exchanging them on the platform. Often players hunt for certain weapon skins for contracts. So, you can exchange several dozen cheap skins for one of average value.
  • Exchange contracts. This is a basic tool available to all players. It allows players to exchange several dozen ordinary inexpensive skins for one, but rarer one. Please note that you cannot add knives, souvenir weapons, or skins with the “Covert” and “Contraband” rarities to the exchange contract.
  • Purchasing on trading platforms. If you don’t get the skins that you’ve been wanting to add to your collection, buy them on online trading platforms.
