CS:GO Operation Phoenix Case Gives Players the Chance for Rare and Valuable Skins


CS:GO Operation Phoenix Case Gives Players the Chance for Rare and Valuable Skins

Operation Phoenix Case Presents New Cases in 2014

Operation Phoenix is the third operation for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. Launching after Operation Bravo, Operation Phoenix began on February 20, 2014 and would ultimately come to an end on June 11, 2014. This operation was available to CS:GO players for a price of $2.99. This granted access to eight of the top-voted custom maps from previous operations. Operation pass holders also had exclusive access to the Operation Phoenix Case.

Taking a Look at the Operation Phoenix Weapon Case

As the second case of 2014, the Operation Phoenix Case included thirteen community-created skins. It was released a mere eight days after the previous CS:GO Weapon Case 3. Players wouldn’t see another case introduced for a little over two months. Opening the case required the use of an Operation Phoenix Case Key.

What’s Inside the CS:GO Operation Phoenix Weapon Case?

This CS:GO case included thirteen designs from the CS:GO community along with the chance to get a rare knife drop. Most of the weapon skins in the case were clean, minimalistic designs that highlight each weapon’s shape. However, there are a few featuring more intricate patterns as well. Some of the skins included in the case would go on to become some of the most popular in the game. The full list of skins includes:

  • Mil-Spec
    • UMP-45 | Corporal
    • Negev | Terrain
    • Tec-9 | Sandstorm
    • MAG-7 | Heaven Guard
  • Restricted
    • MAC-10 | Heat
    • SG 553 | Pulse
    • FAMAS | Sergeant
    • USP-S | Guardian
  • Classified
    • AK-47 | Redline
    • P90 | Trigon
    • Nova | Antique
  • Covert
    • AWP | Asiimov
    • AUG | Chameleon

Only one skin in this case would exist without any float cap whatsoever, and that’s the MAC-10 Heat. Every other skin in the Phoenix Collection has some degree of float cap. While the Asiimov has a float level between 0.18 and 1, the other covert weapon Chameleon ranges from 0.00 to 0.50. Six of the thirteen skins aren’t available at all in Factory New condition.

Market Value and Rarity

While the case was originally exclusive to Operation Phoenix Pass holders, as of June 11, 2014, it was moved to the rare drop pool for all Prime Status players. These players are able to receive the case after their weekly level-up, although the chances are rather slim seeing as 99% of the drops are from the Prime case pool.

To purchase the Operation Phoenix Weapon Case on the Steam Community Market will cost players around $4. With fewer than 15,000 listings, the case isn’t as rare as others quite yet. However, it might be worth the money for those not having any luck getting it to drop in-game.

The star weapon skin from this case is the AWP Asiimov in Field Tested Condition with StatTrak for a price of about $375. With a float between 0.18 and 1, CS:GO gamers won’t be able to find the skin in better condition. Next on the list is the AK-47 Redline at a price of about $275 for the StatTrak Minimal Wear version. This skin has a float cap on each end of the spectrum and is not available in Factory New condition. All other listings above the $50 range are other variations of the Asiimov and Redline. On the lower end of the spectrum, it will only cost players about $30 at most to purchase a StatTrak version of the other skins from the case with some listed under the $0.50 mark.

The extremely rare knives from the Operation Phoenix Case typically fetch a rather high price. Currently there’s a listing for a vanilla Karambit for $1,800 along with a Case Hardened StatTrak M9 Bayonet. Players will often see these knives going for well over $1,000, making them a true prize when unboxed.

Get Your CS:GO Operation Phoenix Weapon Case

The easiest way to get the Operation Phoenix Case at this point would be to either buy or trade for it. However, it does still drop in-game occasionally. That being said, most of the skins from the case are rather affordable if players aren’t having any luck with CS:GO case drops. Of course, that doesn’t include the knives which come in at very high price points. Depending on what they’re after, it may be more worthwhile to purchase or trade for the case or skin directly. However, one of the ultra-rare knife skins may make farming for the case more worthwhile.
