The Counter Strike: Global Offensive market continues to break records.
A Counter Strike: Global Offensive collector has spent a few $160,000 on a single weapon skin. More specifically, on an AK-47 rifle. This player has used the Chinese market to get this skin, making this transaction one of the most expensive in history. The sales offered by these weapon skins continues to increase, and it seems without any limit. Although from time to time, Valve also removes skins from their game.
This installment of CS:GO has undergone many changes since its launch in 2012, especially when they have implemented this skins market. Needless to say, this method currently brings the most revenue to Counter Strike: Global Offensive. Thousands of players exchange their objects to try to get hold of the rarest on the market.
Thousands of dollars for a weapon in Counter Strike: Global Offensive
If the CS:GO market was already profitable, the eSports climate has increased these revenues; this week a player has spent close to $160,000 on a Wild Lotus with several exclusive stickers. One of the most coveted skins in the game. This purchase has materialized through Buff, a Chinese market that includes this latest transaction as the largest in its history.

Apparently, these stickers could sell for close to $40,000. The combination of everything has led this Chinese collector to spend thousands of dollars on this very special Wild Lotus. While this may sound crazy, there are many people who spend a huge amount of money on these things; like collectors of other objects.
This is becoming more and more popular, in fact, a while ago a streamer has been the one who has changed Counter Strike: Global Offensive skins for a car. Something that can overwhelm many people. More specifically, he managed to change a “Saphire Karambit and some stickers for a black BMW M5. Apparently, the prices of this market have no intention of changing, as long as it continues to be in high demand, we will continue to have surreal numbers.
