What CS:GO Cases Are Dropping

When you play CS:GO, at the end of each match, you can receive a CS:GO weapon case. CS:GO cases usually drop randomly at 1 or 2 per week, although some believe you get one case for every 10-20 matches.

If you’ve been competing for a while, you’ve probably asked yourself more than once what the rules are here and what CS:GO cases can be obtained this way.

CS:GO Case Drops

CS:GO Cases

The CS:GO cases that can drop at the end of a match are a Valve choice. The game has an Active Drop System Pool, and the cases included in it change regularly.

This drop system works similarly to the one used by Riot Games for League of Legends. Every week, there’s a pool of free champions that you can choose from. And the options change frequently.

One thing to remember is that Counter-Strike: Global Offensive case drops dip your user type.

Valve wants to incentivize people to upgrade to Prime accounts to make more money. So they offer more valuable weapon cases to Prime players than non-Prime players.

There’s an Active Drop Pool for the first category and a different Active Drop Pool for the second category.

Apart from this distinction, it’s also important to note that Prime players will get a chance to receive a newly released case, while non-Prime players will not. 

Another feature that only Prime players benefit from is the rare case drop.

Now and then, a higher-quality weapon case will drop, and they will not be in the Active Drop Pool.

The chances of receiving one are slim, but they’re not negligible.

Fracture Case all the CSGO weaponry you may possibly need, if you require some dark-looking skins with prominent features. One of the most eye-catching skins belongs to Fracture Case, which will undoubtedly attract your attention.

Prime Cases Drops

Here are some of the CS:GO cases that you can get as a Prime player:

Players with Prime Status on their CS:GO account can receive Prime Weapon Case Drops. The Revolution, Recoil, Dreams & Nightmares, Snakebite, and Fracture Cases are examples of contemporary weapon cases in this category.

By obtaining the Prime Status Upgrade from the Steam shop, one can gain Prime Status. The most recent case to join the Prime Drop pool is the CS:GO Revolution Case. 

Non-Prime Case Drops

For non-Prime players, the list includes the following options:

Players with no Prime Status on their CS:GO accounts were the only ones who could receive Non-Prime weapon case drops.

Unfortunately, on June 3, 2021, the CS:GO update “Adjustments to Non-Prime” ended the non-prime drop pool.

Weapon cases, skins, and graffiti drops can no longer be find for non-Prime players.

Upon reaching Profile Level 21, Prime status is no longer available for no cost. Non-prime cases no longer drop; we have mentioned this section just for information. 

Since then, these cases have been transferred to the “Rare” drop pool: 

Rare Cases 

Prime players can access rare weapon cases, sometimes wrongly referred to as “discontinued.”

These cases were often either previously only available to operating pass owners or released several years ago.

As the name implies, these cases appear only very infrequently; according to some players, they only appear once a year.

The likelihood of receiving a rare case drop is 1%, according to player-collected data.

The list of rarities includes these cases:

Discontinued Cases 

Discontinued weapon cases are exclusively accessible through trade and the Steam Community Market; they never drop in-game.

The eSports cases that were offered between 2013 and 2014 are widely believed to be no longer available within the CS:GO community, despite this fact not being officially confirmed. 

This is because their primary function was to raise money for the significant prize pools. After each operation, the cases for Operations Shattered Web, Broken Fang, and Riptide will close.

They are regarded as discontinued because they do not seem to drop from the “Rare” drop pool. 

The only place where you can get a discontinued case is the steam marketplace. For which you must have a steam account. 

Can You Make Money From CS:GO Cases?

You definitely can, but you shouldn’t expect the amounts to be spectacular.

If your strategy is to play CS:GO to obtain as many cases as possible, you’ll have to play a lot of hours to obtain even several cases, which might be worth $5 – $10.

So if you’re a hardcore CS:GO player, you might be able to make around $30-$50 a month from it.

People are willing to pay more for a newly released CS:GO case, and if you’re a Prime player, you will have the same chance of receiving such cases at the end of each match.

If a case is full of high-quality skins that many players want to own, its price will be much higher than $1.

Final Words 

Here is our complete guide to the counter-strike global offensive cases drop. After the end of the match, CS:GO drops a case for its player, but it depends on the player’s status, whether it’s prime or no-prime. We hope you find this guide helpful.
