Most of us like to have new, shiny toys to play with. In the context of CSGO, a game balanced to the point of being rigid, any novelty may cause a commotion. It may be a new update introducing a small change to one of the maps causing big changes in strategic planning and tactical approach to that particular map. It may be a rebalance (usually a nerf) of a certain weapon that the community and devs deemed to be too powerful or straight out OP to the point of breaking the game. It may be also a new weapon case, filled with fresh skins right from the bakery.
While the map and weapon updates often cause irritation of the gaming community and may sometimes cause more problems, new CSGO skins are a welcome addition for almost all players. After all, if you don’t care for skins, it won’t change anything in your experience. And if you do, you get new toys. Toys that often have quite fat price tags on them.
In this post, I’ll take a look at some of the new skins added to CSGO in the past year. In 2019, we’ve got two weapon cases: The Prisma Case and The CS20 Weapon Case. However, we recently analyzed the best CS20 skins, so you can think of this post as a fresh look on older skins from the Prisma Collection. That is why I decided to go through the five new skins CSGO got as a part of the Prisma Collection. Today we will focus on the top-grade skins from that weapon case.
M4A4 | The Emperor
M4A4 | The Emperor is one of the two Covert skins released in the Prisma Case and a stylish counterpart for AK-47 | The Empress. It is a beautiful design based on the Emperor tarot card. At the center of this skins lies an image of a stern-looking emperor figure surrounded by golden sun-like nimb on a deep blue base. The rest of this design also uses various shades of blue and black with some heraldry and embroidery worthy of an aristocrat’s palace.
When it comes to price, M4A4 | The Emperor is relatively affordable considering its Covert grade and very good artwork. This may be caused by a high number of other excellent M4A4 skins, not mentioning the legendary M4A4 | Howl. Therefore a normal version can be bought as low as $15 (Battle-Scarred) and as high as $150 (Factory New) which shows how much the good state of the artwork is valued by the community. StatTrak versions are respectively much more expensive and can spread between $50 and $650.
Five-SeveN | Angry Mob
The second Covert skin of the Prisma Collection, as well as the second Covert skins for Five-SeveN, Angry Mob, is a colorful and playful, yet a bit bizarre skin. Its design is based around colorful “mob” being angry on the pistol handle and an old-school graffiti on the rest of the model. Pricewise, it is quite an expensive skin for a Five-SeveN. Although normal version of this one of the new CSGO skins is valued at $3 up to $15, a StatTrak one starts around $10 and goes up to $60.
AUG | Momentum
Our third skin is one of the Classified skins found in the Prisma Collection and is probably one of my favorites among all of the new case skins CSGO got in 2019. Momentum is all about moving forward. From the forward-facing vector arrows, and blue-colored center with red borders of the skin simulating the Doppler effect – the entire skin is both well-thought and a bit silly. Plus, there are not as many good AUG skins as there are AK-47 or M4A4 skins. Fortunately, it is quite cheap, with the exception of Factory New for both vanilla and StatTrak version. Thus, you can get it for $2 up to $30, with $33 and $160 for normal and StatTrak-equipped Factory New versions respectively.
XM1014 | Incinegator
A silly concept and a good craft. XM1014 | Incenigator is, as the name implies, a gator that spits fire. I may call it silly, but the design was really thought through. The color palette is oddly satisfying, the concept nicely fits one of the pump-action shotguns CSGO has to offer, plus a very clever usage of the backsight model that resembles the gator’s eyes in shape. If you like this skin, I’ve got good news for you – it is cheap! A normal version goes between $1,50 and $12. StatTrak one is naturally a bit more expensive and costs around $5 with the exception of the StatTrak Minimal Wear which can cost as much as $40.
R8 Revolver | Skull Crusher
The Primal looking design of the Skull Crusher works well with the firepower, model and sheer power of the only revolver available in CSGO. A good choice of colors, shades of yellow, black and white, goes hand-to-hand with the animalistic shapes and dirt. Still, the blazing barrel is a bit too much of a cliche if you ask me… It is available in only three bottom quality levels: Battle-Scarred, Well-Worn, and Field-Tested. Plus, is very cheap never really going over $5 in value.
Where can you get new CSGO skins?
All of the new CSGO skins mentioned above can be found in the Prisma Case. Currently, this particular weapon case costs $0.07 on Steam and is available in hundreds of thousands. Moreover, if you regularly play CSGO you most likely have a few copies of this weapon case. However, considering their relative price as well as low odds of uncasing one of the mentioned new skins, it may be better to just buy them off the Steam Community Market or third-party marketplaces, especially with the latest update to how the case keys work.
If you wish to go for one of the new CSGO knife skins that can theoretically be dropped from this case, you have a fine choice of four models (Talon, Navaja, Ursus, Stilleto) in six different finishes (Marble Fade, Damascus Steel, Tiger Tooth, Rust Coat, Doppler, Ultraviolet). Although this isn’t the most impressive choice of both models and finishes, you can still find some quality knives there.
