What’s Up With Ursus Knives in 2020?
Are you a survivalist? Do you feel like you need a knife you could fight a bear with? Well, named after one, the Ursus Knife might just be the perfect blade for you. Inspired by the Gerber Prodigy Tanto Knife, this survival specialist is great for letting your wild side out on the CSGO server.
In this article, we’ll check out some of the best Ursus Knife skins the game has to offer, give you some fun tips about getting them and tell you about the best ways of selling them once you’re done with them!
Ursus Knife Skins Explained 2020
Remember, knife skins are cosmetic only. Buying one of these skins won’t give your knife insane killing power, but will give you awesome animations and a bit more swag when sticking a blade up somebody’s back. So which skins should you buy? Here are five of our favorite picks for a best Ursus Skins knife CSGO has.
Ursus Knife | Marble Fade
The Marble Fade is a classic design that was featured in a lot of CSGO knife skins so it’s no wonder this design is a rather expensive one at around $500. Featuring a rainbow-like fade, the candy-like effect given out by it contrasts with its stabbing capabilities which will invariably end up with the Marble Fade featuring a little more red than any other colour. This knife is absolutely perfect for doling out some sweet revenge on some pesky trash talkers.
Ursus Knife | Doppler
The Doppler is a unique skin design in that its wear isn’t the only factor determining its price. Dopplers have multiple “Phases” depending on the randomized amounts of blue and red and black tints on the blade. While the first 4 Phases of the weapon sell for around $500, the Black Pearl phase sells for over a thousand dollars and Ruby and Sapphire editions sell for a whopping three to three-and-a-half thousand dollars, so if you happen to unbox one, be sure to check which phase it is since you might’ve just struck ruby gold!
Ursus Knife | Tiger Tooth
Roar! The Tiger Tooth’s striped design will help you unleash your inner bladed beast. The orange striped design is sure to attract all you Tiger King fans out there. Before you get a Joe Exotic mullet though, be sure to check whether this knife skin fits your budget, since it can cost you anywhere from $300 to $400.
Ursus Knife | Ultraviolet
The Ultraviolet is a classic CSGO finish that stands out from all Ursus Knife skins with its minimalistic design and the fact it focuses on the handle, rather than the blade of the weapon. A purple and black combo that goes great with skin sets such as our Blue & Purple set for under $20, this knife is a bit more of a budget option at around $100-200… Unless you want the Factory New version which will set you back at least a thousand dollars.
Ursus Knife | Damascus Steel
And now, the cheapest good looking Ursus Knife, the Damascus Steel. A basic design based on artisan blades from the Near East, this knife finish might not be too shiny, but it’s very classy. It’s definitely a fit for you if you’re going for a minimalistic vibe with your skins, and it won’t set you back more than $150, leaving it as the perfect option for people who don’t want to splash out too much for a clean-lookin’ knife.
Where Can You Get Ursus Knife Skins?
If you’re a lootbox aficionado and really want a fresh-out-of-the-crate Ursus Knife, we have some great news and some not-so-great news. Since the Ursus Knife is relatively new to CSGO, the skins we’ve listed can only be found in two cases, the Prisma and Prisma 2. Some other skins can also be found in the Horizon and Danger Zone cases, though. So, if you want to go on a case opening spree, you absolutely can go wild on them… but the bad news is that the odds of hitting any knife, let alone an Ursus Knife are around 0.26%… Which isn’t quite optimal, if you really want to hit a knife. Honestly, you’re probably better off not doing that.
So, rather than spending hundreds of dollars on keys only to keep seeing the same 10 blue skins popping out every time, perhaps a better option would be to simply purchase the skin you want. Your first instinct might be to head to the Steam Marketplace, but oftentimes, external marketplaces offer you more bang for your buck, so be sure to check services like our own Skinwallet Market.
Remember to always look for the best float and pattern on a knife you want to buy, especially if it’s a Doppler. Analyze the prices carefully and make sure that the knife you’re buying is actually the one you want. When you’re certain, pull the trigger… or… take a stab, I guess.
How Can You Sell Ursus Knife Skins?
Alright, so you’ve had your fun with the Ursus Knife you bought, or maybe Gaben #blessed you with an amazing drop, but you want to cash it out. The Steam Marketplace is once again, the instinctive option, however, their prices are only good if you want to spend your money on Steam products, meaning the only physical thing you can get for your knife is a Valve Index. Luckily, external cashout sites like Skinwallet offer you the ability to turn your virtual funds into real funds nearly instantly.
Even if you want to reinvest your knife into other skins, the best deals will probably, once again, come from external marketplaces. Check which marketplace will give you the most money for your skin and exchange it there for skins of your choosing. It might take some time, but it might also be the difference between a brand-spanking-new loadout and an incomplete one.
Remember to always be wary of scammers, who love to target people with knives. If you’re trading with external marketplaces, triple-check their bots before accepting any trade offer, and be sure to make sure your account is secured by following our anti-scam steps. Keeping your account secure is the key to ensuring that your skins and the money they’re worth stay safe!
Are Ursus Knives Worth It?
Rating knives in CSGO is hard, it’s all very much based on personal preference. The knife itself has a good, clean look to it and can be anything from a classic survival blade to a shiny gem, depending on what you’re looking for. This versatility, along with decent-but-not-great animations places the Ursus Knife squarely in the mid-tier of the knife landscape. If you dig simple and clean designs, it’s definitely the best bang for your buck.
However, if you’re looking for more fancy alternatives, the Karambits, M9 Bayonets and Butterfly Knives of the world await. Buying a knife in CSGO is always a big investment, so before you go for it, be sure you have a knife you’re happy with. Check out the animations, look for the best finish, and only then go for it. Otherwise, you might end up finding the Ursus Knife unbearable after some time, and might even end up losing money in the process.
