Top 5 Operations in CS:GO and Cases of Matchmaking Battles

There are different ways to get skins in CS:GO, and one of them is opening cases. Their collections are regularly added with each significant update. It consists of implementing a specific DLC with new boxes, community maps with missions, unique coins, and other advantages. The cases include unique skins chosen from the best design projects on Steam Workshop. Let’s discover which events are considered the best and cases have the most desired skins for CS:GO battles.  

What Benefits do Operations Mainly Include? 

The events change seasonally, and each of them usually lasts no more than 6 months. The players typically appreciate the newly appeared items and set up high prices. During the operation’s first months, the normal skins’ cost is twice increased, and the case price can reach up to $10. A battle pass is required to acquire the benefits, which usually has a different price.

So, the profit for joining the CS:GO battle operation is in the following aspects: 

Maps. The best workshop designs from the previous season become available for download. Each player can launch it from the game search console, and after the match, pass holders get the new drop for completing missions. 

Coins. It can be improved from bronze to gold after completing the operational missions. Players can’t sell the item on the market or trade it with others (it represents the entire operation statistics in the inventory icon). 

Missions. The primary events included only tasks completed during the matchmaking games. The pass holders get the reward only if they stay until the match ends. Completing tasks on each map included getting the skin from the corresponding map collection (for instance, the prize for missions on Mirage consists of an item from the Mirage set). There are only 2 tasks to complete weekly. 

Campaigns. The “Vanguard” operation introduced battle CS:GO campaigns with paid and free missions. Each included different stories with a specific plot and the hero’s final destination. 

Journal. It collects the statistics of each player and their Steam friends’ game performance during the pass activation. The information includes the headshot percentage, number of completed missions, game hours, etc. 

Each event leads to the community’s wish to instantly get the new items, which may cost more than the previous operation ones. Several collections are still remembered for their unique collections.

Nowadays, the players join specific CS:GO case battles where the winner gets the drop of the others. Firstly, the players create a custom lobby, defining the cases for opening and their amount. The one who gets the most expensive drop becomes a winner. Even 1 expensive item can change the battle’s result, mainly depending on the player’s luck.
