CS:GO's Weapon skins explained (As of November 2016)

13003 ratings | 477489 views
This video was made to help me to research and to order the information required to make some others, but it also serves as a pretty nice overview of the weapon cases, how many skins there are and where they stand within the massive collection of CS:GO collectibles. Thanks to CSGOstash, I used the site extensively when constructing this video and list: https://csgostash.com/ 0:06 - Collections (Briefly covered) 0:50 - Weapon cases 1:18 - Who makes which skins? http://i.imgur.com/DZihwke.png 1:31 - The R8 Revolver, the gun with the fewest skins (Probably followed by the M249) 1:49 - How much money to skin artists make from a submission? ($40,000 http://polycount.com/discussion/168659/cs-go-weapon-finish-contest) 2:03 - How many skins have the most popular artists had accepted? 2:40 - Difficulties I had allocating each submission to an account 3:26 - Curious case of Syd Mead 3:45 - Contraband items 4:14 - Just a random thought I had when making this video and had to share about the maker's names over the course of several months of working on this. 4:29 - The MP7 / MP9 skin confusion!!! Apparently Valve used the MP9 texture on the MP7 weapon that's been included in one of the cases.

I still don't understand. What makes a "skin" valuable if it's just a computer graphic. Is this like selling art? Why are some prohibitively so expensive?

valve is so smart! they only add really good made skins for the red. some fine made but shitty skins for purple and so better made skins for pink then they go for boring or well... bad skins for blue. they are easy to find and you just shove em in a case and people get em all the time trying to get a red! xD

I hate most of the skins. The only ones I like are AK47 Redline, Deagle Conspiracy (or Blaze) and AWP Worm God. I'm very picky when it comes to skins. A lot of them try too hard or look too flashy with all their colors and junk on it. I think less is more. Which is why I like Redline and Conspiracy so dang much

Skins are simply a form of addiction, and a way to rob you of your life and your money. Money is a creation of Human greed and stubbornes, as many of you fail to realize or accept, the money you spend, those bills are made out of trees which need to exist for us to breath... Put down your money, put down your skins, save the planet, not stand idly by and watch as it crumbles all around you, because by then, there will be nothing left to watch or save...

Could you do a similar analysis on maps Valve accepted into operations? Maybe include things such as how many custom materials were used on average or something

wait can drop case watching games?
NuggetHD (1 year ago)
Carmine Bastevole major tournaments (as in Valve sponsored ones) will have the opportunity to drop special cases if you watch a match. These cases drop at the end of every round to a random amount of random viewers, but the chances of getting a case drop are astronomically low, somewhere around 1%

Only majors. Like MLG Columbus did. Dont think the IEM Oakland and others did. Usually 1-2 majors per year for CSGO. And also a slim chance.

Hey, great video! Just a couple of very minor nitpicks from me: The AUG | Syd Mead was made by both Coridium and Mead himself to my understanding, as evidenced by the credit on the images on the Gamma 2 case blog post. It's quite possible that the workshop submission was submitted in "Hidden" visibility, visible only to Valve themselves, Coridium and Syd Mead. It's possible that the collaboration occurred through Valve of course. The MP9 to MP7 Impire change was likely Valves decision: it's a skin of the type "spray paint" which uses a tiling pattern projected onto the gun from all sides. As a result, a single pattern can be applied to any weapon in the game to create the same theme, so valve could make the change in minutes, if not seconds. If you're interested in learning more about how the whole skin system works, you might be interested in checking out /r/csworkshop (shameless plug), where I've got a number of resources related to skinmaking stickied. Another, very ridiculous nitpick. You misspelled my name, it has a < ī > rather than an < i >. I'm not 100% sure why I keep it that way, it makes it both annoying to type, and as a result, search for, so perhaps it's time for a slight rebranding...

Philip, if a pro gets a score of 100+ in a tournament/major, are they put into the overwatch system like in normal matchmaking? Great video!

Valve focus on Skins = Wins But behind that is Hackers = Mad Hitboxes = Broken Desk

arent the chroma 1,2,3 knife finishes technically made by valve too?`did you count knive skins (as in the skin, not the knife itself) too?
jeremytox (1 year ago)
I would love to see more skins analysis from you Philip, stuff like what's the most popular skins in the pro scene, or whats the most cheap all stattrak loadout possible, small stuff but still kinda interesting.
Zinn (1 year ago)
i think if your skin gets chosen by valve you cannot change your name
Kravence (1 year ago)
You can but changing you name makes it difficult for people to find you, hence why they don't
TheCatOfWar (1 year ago)
that sounds silly
