Top 10 Most Expensive CS:GO Cases to Open

There are many cases available to open in CSGO. But which ones are the most expensive ones? Find out in this post.

Top 10 Most Expensive CS:GO Cases to Open

With the Arms Deal update in 2013, Valve introduced weapon cases. After finishing CS:GO matches, players have a chance to get one of these CS:GO weapon cases dropping for them as a free reward. The cases can either be sold on the market, or be opened with an associated CS:GO case key, which needs to be purchased. Each case contains various skins with different levels of rarity for the different weapons in CS:GO, with CS:GO knives and CS:GO gloves usually being the most desired and rarest rewards, with a few exceptions. Since their first update, Valve has added more and more CS:GO cases and is continuing to do so.

Valve uses a complicated case drop method, which consists of a pool of commonly dropped cases and rarely dropped cases, which changes all the time, whenever a new CS:GO weapon case is added to the game. Besides, this so called 'drop pool' is different for users who have Prime Status and those who don't. A few weapon cases are completely discontinued and don't drop at all anymore. The method used by Valve, results in older cases rising in price over the years, based on their quantities and the demand from players.

In this post, we won't get into details and ins and outs of the drop system. We're simply looking at the 10 most expensive CS:GO cases,  from cheapest to priciest.
