Understanding the CS2 Drop System

The drop system in CS2 rewards players with Care Packages that contain a random weapon skin, a weapon case, and a few graffiti. Unlike CS:GO’s system, CS2’s gives players a bit more freedom, in the sense that they can choose what they want to receive as their weekly rewards.

Each time you receive a Care Package, you can select two rewards from it. Most players will choose a weapon case and a weapon skin because that’s the best deal from a financial standpoint.

Care Packages in CS2 are offered just once per week and only to those who level up their CS2 profile.

The skins and cases that you can receive in your weekly Care Package come from the Active Drop Pool, which changes constantly based on Valve’s internal decisions and new case releases.

To be eligible to receive CS2 drops, you must upgrade your account to Prime. Without the Prime Upgrade, you won’t get the excellent rewards that Valve has in store for its player base. And what is even worse, you cannot play ranked matches.

Weapon Skin Rarity

In the world of CS2 weapon skins, rarity is key. There are eight captivating rarity levels of weapon skins: Consumer Grade, Base Grade, Industrial Grade, Mil-Spec, High Grade, Restricted, Remarkable, and Contraband. Generally, the rarer the skin, the higher its value. These come with a float value, and the lower it is, the better the skin is.

Cheap CS2 skins can be sold or used for trade-up contracts. But ultimately, it’s up to you to decide what you want to do with your skins.
