Case opening has become a popular occupation among CS:GO players, but how many of them know how to do it efficiently? The internet is full of strategies and practices promising to increase the rarity of the loot from case opening. Not everyone wants to dig through these internet pages for effective tips.
That is why today, we have collected four best case-opening approaches to increase your profit. So be ready, as once you finish this article, your case opening will be much more successful.
Use Case-Opening Websites
In 2023, there are far more case-opening methods than just through the CS:GO game client. Case-opening websites have become very popular due to the unique features they offer. For example, there is a CS:GO free case opening opportunity on some platforms, allowing you to get skins without spending a penny.
Such websites also have bonus features like a currency you will get after opening each case. This currency is an additional recourse that you can turn into more case openings and better loot.
Also, don’t forget those case-opening websites have analogs of steam cases but for lower prices. This can result in you having to spend much less money for your case-opening session. For example, let’s imagine you want to open 100 cases that cost $0.50 on Steam while the price on the website is $0.44. Boom, instant $6 of profit, which means that you can open two more cases out of nowhere.
Choose Right Cases
Do you know that you get completely different profits from opening various cases? The prices of CS:GO items are constantly shifting, which makes creating a staple list of profitable cases impossible. But still, there is a formula that can help you.
What you can do is calculate a potential profit from the case opening. To do that, find an average value of the items in the case and compare them to the money you spend on case opening. The closer the ratio to 1:1 (or higher), the more profit you will get from a case.
Still, there are some case types that often have the most potential profit among competitors:
Do you know when the skins cost the most? The answer is: when they are just out. So, it is obvious that you get a much better profit from opening newly-released containers. But keep in mind that cases themselves also have a soaring cost at the start of the sales.
If you have been playing CS:GO for a while, you should know that Valve is not only releasing new cases but removing the old ones. This can cause a skyrocket in prices even of the old and cheap skins. For example, there was this souvenir case from the Cobblestone Collection, but it can no longer drop, as the Cobblestone map is not played competitively anymore. This has made the case price and items inside super high. Therefore, tracking the news of competitive CS:GO is crucial to take the most advantage of removed cases. Thus, if you are one of the first to know which case will disappear from drops, you can buy as much of them as possible before they go up in price.
Track the Market
Generally, tracking the market is always a good thing for a case opener. If you plan to get profit from cases, you must obtain useful info about dropping/raising prices faster than others, and it will lead you to better, more expensive loot.
Checking out the Steam trade market daily to know what’s up is pretty dumb and boring. So we recommend you find trading/selling/case-opening communities where people share important news on that topic.
You can also subscribe to CS:GO social pages, where you will find information about upcoming updates and news that can influence item prices.
Don’t Give Up
At the end of the day, opening cases is predominantly a random process. You can be one of those lucky guys who opens a couple of cases and gets a knife, while others crack open countless cases to get nothing.
If you are one of those unlucky openers, remember that your valuable item awaits you in the pile of containers. Just keep opening them consistently, and you will definitely find your treasure!
