CS GO Stash – The #1 Dealer of CS GO Skins
CS GO Skins, also referred to as weapon finishes, are a new feature in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, introduced in the CS GO Arms Deal update. They are weapons with different textures that can be equipped in-game. They are completely cosmetic, holding no gameplay function. However, their different colours and textures can be used as a slight tactical advantage or disadvantage in some circumstances.
To acquire a CS GO skin, one must either:
Earn them through random drops by playing in online community and official servers.
Unbox them from opening weapon and promotional CS GO Cases.
Trade 10 skins for one of a higher rarity with a Trade Up Contract.
Trading with other players. Buying skins from the Steam Market is considered a trade.
Also, some variants include a StatTrak™ device, a counter that shows the total amount of kills acquired with the weapon by the current owner. Holding the inspect key [F] (default) will allow the player to ‘inspect’ the gun in greater detail and give a better view of the StatTrak™ counter.
Access to the inventory is unavailable when the player is alive and after the warm-up in Competitive game.
Many skins also have unique descriptions, and provide extra flavor text to their weapon descriptions. A number of them reference characters in CSGO campaigns.
