The Most Expensive Skins in CS:GO 2022
Before we start listing the most expensive skins in the history of the game, let's talk about what their price depends on. First and foremost, the value of a skin is determined by its rarity and wearability. There are over 650 skins in CS:GO, each with five different levels of wear; factory new, minimal wear, field-tested, well-worn, and battle-scarred.In total, there are over 3,500 possible skins.
That's not all though, some of them are only available periodically or in limited numbers, which of course also significantly affects their price. Finally, there are things such as stickers, add-ons or signatures of famous players on skins. See our text about favorite skins of famous players LINK.
Before we begin, we would just like to point out that it is difficult to create an accurate list of the most expensive skins in CS:GO, because their prices are constantly changing. Some of them are no longer available and can only be found in collectors' inventories.
