CSGO Cases Guide: CSGO Best Cases To Open

CSGO Best Cases 2020
Twenty years of CounterStrike and the cases are still hitting


Over Twenty Years, and Over Thirty Cases. How do you know what to open?

While buying and trading directly with other players might be the most cost-effective way of getting the skins you want, cases not only offer you a chance at rare skins for a fraction of the cost but opening them can also be quite the experience. Maybe you don’t have the money for an expensive skin, or maybe you want to surprise a friend, either way, cases still have value. Whether to add some style to your game or to take a shot at something rare, this is a list of the five best cases to open in CS:GO. 


1. The Glove Case

The Glove Case trades out the ability to pull a rare knife with the chance at a set of gloves. While not exclusively sci-fi themed, many of the skins available have vivid colors and bright highlights. Even gloves aside, this case contains one of my favorite collections.

There may not be many different pieces available in this case, but with headlining, options like the Case Hardened AK, the Hypnotic Deag, and a Lightning Strike AWP, this case is bringing quality well over quantity.

As the namesake of this case, you also have a chance at drawing the rare Falchion knife itself.
