CS:GO skins are an in-game virtual commodity that is always in high demand among the player base. Counter-Strike was one of the first online multiplayer games to effectively use these virtual items as a profitable monetization source, which is now adopted by almost all online gaming titles. CS:GO skins offer a plethora of customization options to the players, giving them a chance to tweak their loadout and make it more personal.
