Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Skins
CS: GO skins are customized weapons with different finishes. They do not contribute to the game with some special functions and are entirely cosmetical. To get a skin, players must uncrate them from opening weapons or promotional containers. Skins can be also acquired by playing in an online community and by random drops.
There are three skins categories: Normal, Stat-Track, and Souvenir. Normal skins are the baseline, without any special features. Stat-Trak skins have a small LED screen, showing the number of kills made with them. Souvenir weapons are rare and drop on the biggest CS:GO tournament to people watching the battles.
CS:GO Ranking system is designed to address the problem of finding teammates and opponents at the same skill level to play. When playing against or along with players as good as you are the gameplay is more intense, longer, and intriguing.
