The Huntsman Weapon Case


The Huntsman Case Key

The Huntsman Weapon Case is a weapon case consisting of community weapons released as part of the May 1, 2014 update. It requires a Huntsman Case Key to be opened and cannot be opened with a CS:GO Case Key. There is also a slim chance to receive a Huntsman style knife when opening the case.

On June 11th, 2014, the Huntsman Weapon Case was updated, along with the Community Sticker Capsule 1 due to a copyright infringement[1][2][3]. The M4A4 | Howl and several other weapon skins were removed and 6 new weapon skins were added.

The updated M4A4 Howl design

These weapon skins were removed from the Huntsman Weapon Case and can only be obtained by trading with other players, by completing a trade up contract (with the exception of M4A4 Howl) or by purchasing them from the Steam Market.


  • Tec-9 | Isaac is created by the same creator as the Asiimov family of skins, and is originally uploaded as Tec-9 | Asiimov, and is also named after science fiction author Isaac Asimov.
  • The M4A4 | Howl was removed from The Huntsman Collection due to copyright reasons. A few weeks after the release of the Huntsman Case, Valve discovered that the artwork was stolen[1]. Auzzii and Sic (collaborated with Auzzii with the creation of the Howl) stole one of Canisalbus' artworks which was inspired by the author's dog. After that, the Howl was taken to its own exclusive category (known as Contraband) making it rare and expensive. Valve replaced the artwork with a similar one made by them. Auzzii also created a sticker and was also taken to the Contraband category.
