What are CSGO Skins?
CSGO skins are purely cosmetic add-ons that drop randomly while playing CSGO that can be used to enhance your gaming experience. Skins can be applied on your weapons to customize them, giving them an unique look. The higher quality a skin, the rarer it will be, usually translating to a more expensive acquisition, usually proportional to the perceived value amongst players. Skins also come in different exterior qualities, corresponding to the amount of wear and usage of the skin. The exterior quality is represented by it’s “float”, a decimal value between 0 and 1. The lower the “float” of the skin, the less scratches and wear appear on the skin, and thus usually a higher value.
How do I get CSGO Skins?
You can get skins from other players either by purchasing them from the Steam Community Market or trading, randomly through drops when playing CSGO online in official game servers or community servers, through opening crates, and by selecting 10 or more skins to upgrade in a Trade Up Contract. While these conventional methods to acquire skins work, they often take a lot of time (in the case of drops, which are exceedingly rare while playing) or cost money (opening a crate requires you to buy the corresponding case key from the game’s in-app purchases).
We have compiled a list of ways you can get the CS:GO skin you desire easily for free, without the need to downloading suspicious cracks or cheats, all of which are very likely to set off Valve Anti-Cheat (VAC), earning you a permanent non-appealable ban from the game and often from trading as well.
Points for Prizes
This method involves finding a site which allows you to earn points that can be redeemed in their shop for the skin you want. Although this guarantees you have full control over what skin you receive, it usually takes a long time to earn enough points for the skins you desire and depending on the site, can also take some time to withdraw the skin.

Gambling site bonuses
While most people see skin gambling sites as a money sinkhole, some sites give users daily loyalty credits and social media engagement bonuses that can be spent opening cases for free. While it may take many continuous daily visits to accumulate enough credits to open a case and receive a skin, this method is extremely low-effort and guarantees you a skin once you have saved up enough credits to open a case. In addition, as these cases often contain rare and expensive skins, if you are lucky you can receive a high-value skin that can be sold on the Steam market or traded for the skin you desire.
We hope this gives you a better understanding of the various methods you can use to get free CSGO skins.
