New rare “AWP Fade” CSGO skin selling for insane price

Nicholas Sakadelis

An all new CSGO AWP skin is selling for upwards of $1,400+.

CSGO’s newest operation, Broken Fang is now available for players. With this update, plenty of new skin collections have been added to the game.

One of those collections – The Control collection, contains one of the most lucrative skins in the game yet, the AWP Fade.

The AWP Fade is a beautiful finish to a iconic weapon. The Fade is a covert weapon and is extremely rare.

In order to have a chance at getting one, you’ll need to head to the operation store and spend 4 stars to get a random chance to pull this skin out of the control collection. The odds of getting this weapon is less than 1%.

Players only get 10 stars a week for free in the pass, so you’ll only have 2 shots a week to try to get this for free, or spend approximately $3 in stars in-game to try your luck.

Due to this extreme rarity, the weapon is already listed at $1,400 in factory new condition on the steam community market. In Minimal Rare quality, the weapon is listed around $1,300 at the time of writing.

These prices are no stranger to the Counter-Strike community, with weapons like the AWP Dragon Lore being worth around $4,000+ in Minimal Wear condition.

This weapon may skyrocket in price after operation Broken Fang ends, since the Control collection may not be available after the operation ends. Considering only a finite amount of these AWP’s will drop during the operation, it’s entirely possible this could be one of the most expensive skins in a year or two.

The AWP fade isn’t the only fade skin in the game either, joining the Glock, MP7, MAC-11, and knife finish. Recently, the Glock fade has been a skyrocketing skin, attracting similar value due to its rarity, around $900 – $1,000.

With the AWP being a much better weapon than the Glock, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see the value of it get into the $3,000 or $4,000 range after the operation ends.
