Containers are a type of item exclusive to Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. When opened, they will provide a player with a cosmetic item, randomly selected from the container's selection of cosmetic items, with those of higher rarity having a smaller chance to appear.

Weapon Case

Weapon-case-1

An example of a weapon case

Weapon Cases were introduced in the Arms Deal update. Players have a chance to receive weapon cases as a drop after each completed game on a VAC secured server.

In order to open a weapon case, the player requires a matching key which can be bought in-game or from someone else via the Steam Market. Each weapon case contains a collection of weapon skins ranging from Mil-Spec (rare) skins to exceedingly rare knife skins. Unique to weapon cases, there is also a chance to receive a StatTrak™ version of the weapon skin when opening the case.

The types of weapon cases include:

  • Black - Valve created weapon skins requiring a CS:GO Case Key
  • eSports - Valve created weapon skins requiring an eSports Key with a portion of the proceeds going to support the CS:GO eSport gaming scene
  • Yellow - community created weapon skins requiring unique keys with a portion of the proceeds going to support the skins' authors

Probability

On September 11, 2017, Perfect World CS:GO Team released information regarding the probability of item quality available from Weapon Cases, in accordance with policy from the Ministry of Culture mandating that Chinese video games with lootbox-type microtransactions need to announce their loot quality stats.

The probability of items received in a weapon case are calculated under the following rules:

  • From Rare items (darker blue) to Ancient items (Red), the relative probability of getting an item one grade higher than the current grade is 1:5.
  • For ultra rare tier items (yellow), its relative probability to Ancient items (Red) is 2:5.
  • Different items of the same quality will have the same chance to appear.
  • Any items that have a StatTrak variant will have a 1/10 chance of coming with one.[1]

In percentage forms, the probability of individual item grades are as follows:[2]

Quality Normal Variant Probability StatTrak Variant Probability
Special items 0.25575% 0.02558%
Covert 0.63939% 0.6394%
Classified 3.19693% 0.31969%
Restricted 15.98465% 1.59847%
Mil-Spec 79.92327% 7.99233%

Probability of individual items in each item grade is then divided equally for all available items.

Sticker Capsules
