IEM Rio Major 2022: How to Get Souvenir Tokens and Claim Souvenir Packages in CS:GO
Here is everything you need to know about Souvenir Tokens and Packages.
Valve released the Viewer Pass for IEM Rio Major 2022 earlier today on 22nd October, prior to the tournament which is scheduled to kick off later this month.
As always the Viewer Pass consists of features like Pick'Em Challenge, Souvenir Tokens, Event Coin, and the coveted Souvenir Packages whose content continues to be shrouded in mystery.
Users can directly receive three Souvenir Tokens along with the Viewer Pass itself by opting to purchase the premium version priced at INR 1,430 ($18 USD). For those buying the cheaper base variant which costs INR 795 ($10 USD), they still have a chance to receive Souvenir Tokens through a couple of alternate methods.
Talking about the Souvenir Packages, they are nothing but limited-edition souvenir quality weapon skins which can be obtained by using Souvenir Tokens and do not require any key to be opened unlike the regular weapon cases and collections.
Here is how you can obtain more Souvenir Tokens and use them to claim Souvenir Packages during the IEM Rio Major 2022.

The Viewer Pass is available in two variants, the base version for INR 795 ($10 USD) and the premium for INR 1,430 ($18 USD). Both passes grant users access to all the features, but the base variant comes with no Souvenir Tokens while the premium offers three of them.
Apart from this, users also have the option to earn Souvenir Tokens by completing certain challenges that come along with the Rio 2022 Viewer Pass. These challenges revolve around the community favorite Pick'Em Challenge for different stages of the tournament - Challengers, Legends, Champions.

For every three challenges that a user completes successfully, they are rewarded with a Souvenir Token for free. In total, users can receive a maximum of three Souvenir Tokens by completing all the challenges listed above.
Finally, the last way of attaining more Souvenir Tokens is by simply purchasing them from the store either through CS:GO or Steam before the Major concludes. Each token costs about $2.99 USD.
How to claim Souvenir Packages in CS:GO during IEM Rio Major 2022
Souvenir Packages are nothing but Major exclusive cosmetic collections that contain limited-edition Souvenir quality weapon skins. Once obtained by a user the Souvenir Packages do not require a key to open them.
To claim a Souvenir Package a user must have a Souvenir Token. A user can receive a maximum of one package in exchange for one token. In order to execute this, the user needs to follow these three easy steps,
: The user first needs to select any match from the IEM Rio Major 2022.
: Once any particular match has been selected by the user, they will receive a random gold sticker based on the players and teams competing in that match, along with the map on which that particular match was played.
Earlier, skins obtained via Souvenir Packages used to contain four stickers, the tournament sticker, stickers of the two competing teams, and the player signature sticker of the round MVP. But last year, during the PGL Stockholm Major, rules around the player autographed stickers had been changed by Valve resulting in the weapon containing only three stickers.
This year, Valve has decided that Souvenirs will feature gold stickers of the teams and map of the match as per the user's selection.
These Souvenir Packages can only be claimed on matches played as part of the IEM Rio Major 2022. Users will have time until 15th December to make a decision and consume them, after which all Souvenir Tokens and Souvenir Packages will become void.
