Weapon cases play a very important role in Counter Strike: Global Offensive, since they are the easiest method of introducing new weapon skins to the CS:GO economy, besides free CS:GO (CS2) skins from game drops. Because of this, Valve regularly introduces new weapon cases to the game, each containing a new set of skins for players to collect.
Although a weapon case will always grant you a skin, its calculated randomly and you never really know which skin you will get. Still, if you don’t mind a little gambling, a weapon case can be a great method of getting new skins, and potentially even getting back the money you spent on the key used to open it. However, to really be able to profit from weapon cases, you must first learn and understand a little bit more about them.
If you need a weapon case that can help you return your investment when you sell CS:GO (CS2) skins, or simply give you visually impressive skins, keep on reading. Here’s everything you need to know about the famous Fracture Case.
What Is The Fracture Case?
The Fracture Case was released on August 6th 2020, just before the Operation Broken Fang and After Prisma 2 weapon case. The Fracture Case added extra 17 weapon skins, each designed individually by selected artists from the CS:GO community. Upon release the Fracture Case was available as a standard weapon case drops and players could randomly receive a Fracture Case of their own for free right after completing the match.
Currently, the Fracture Case is only available for purchase from other players. However, the weapon case is currently very cheap, at around $0.60 mark, with the price only falling down. Depending on what’s your goal with the weapon case you purchase, you can either get a visually impressive skin for a cheap price, or even significantly make your money back. The Fracture Case contains one quite expensive skin, the Printstream Desert Eagle, currently sitting at a $130 mark for the Factory New version. However, the real reason why players still choose to purchase the Fracture Case are the rare Fracture Case knives, which you can open in the special item slot.
The Fracture Case includes 4 different knives: Paracord Knife, Survival Knife, Skeleton Knife and Nomad Knife, with 52 different finishes in total. Most importantly, if you get really lucky, you might open the incredibly rare Nomad Knife Fade, which is at the moment one of the most expensive items in the game, clocking its price at well above $1400.
