A wealthy admirer offered to exchange ohnePixel $130,000 worth of cases and pills, leaving xQc in a state of shock.

We’ve seen certain Counter-Strike: Global Offensive skins sell for hundreds of thousands of dollars on the market in the past, despite the fact that in-game cosmetics have no intrinsic value and are only worth what a player is willing to spend for them. The most expensive knife, the “Blue Gem” 387 Karambit Case Hardened, is said to be worth upwards of millions of dollars. In 2021, the owner of the knife rejected down an offer of €1.2 million (approximately $1.5 million USD). The unveiling of the improved first-person shooter has caused prices of all cosmetics, including cases, to rise higher than ever before because CS:GO skins will transfer over to the much awaited Counter-Strike 2.

CS:GO streamer ohnePixel received a significant donation from a fan in his July 2 stream, who gave the skin collector over $100,000 worth of cases and sticker capsules. This was in response to Valve’s ongoing crackdown on accounts connected to gambling sites, which has included banning accounts with inventories worth up to $6 million collectively. 

xQc was a little perplexed after watching the clip. The former Overwatch pro made fun of himself by asserting that if he opens the cases, they will only be worth a dollar or less. “Brother, I don’t get it,” he said. “Okay, dude if you open these chat, I’m telling you chat, you turn $100k to 54 cents. I’m actually deadass.” He added: “You turn this sh*t into 54 American cents if you open this sh*t.”

Even though the Juicer initially assumed ohne had bought the products, it turned out to be a contribution from a fan. xQc was shocked to learn: “Wait, he donated it? Huh? It’s a dono?”

It’s fair to say that the hype surrounding CS cosmetics is at an all-time high. Just a few days after its release, players collectively spent an enormous fortune on the new Anubis skin collection. On Friday, July 7, ohnePixel intends to begin streaming the cases. He’ll be trying to score a valuable Souvenir Dragon Lore or a rare Katowice 2014 holo sticker, both of which are valued hundreds of thousands of dollars. But the chances are not on his side.
