The Counter-Strike: Global Offensive skin market is thriving, with another rare AK47 skin sells at $160,000.

According to data miners, one of the primary reasons behind the Source 2 port was the CSGO skin market. The CSGO inventory is crammed with skins worth millions of dollars, with traders spending big bucks every day. The recent AK47 trade is an excellent example of the CSGO market’s high value.

An AK47 deal has dropped jaws on the floor. A Chinese dealer has paid $160,000 for the rare Wild Lotus skin. A trade worth $160K is nothing new in CSGO. The game has seen skin deals for as much as $1.5 million, but this skin indeed makes the cut for the top 10 priciest skins. 

Wild Lotus is vivid, bright skin. Typically, most CSGO skins have simple, dull-toned patterns, so colorful skins easily find their audience. But that’s not why this particular model is highly sought-after. A plain Wild Lotus sells at somewhere around $10,000.

But this skin model has an extremely low float, meaning it has a factor new exterior. Still, it’s worth thousands more than a factory-new counterpart. Here’s why.

The Wild Lotus skin sold on Buff is stamped with four valuable stickers worth $145,000. It has four Reason Holo stickers from Katowice 2014, adding to the overall worth of the item. Factory new exterior, attractive colors, and the fact that legendary CSGO pro Russel “Twistzz” Van Dulken has used this skin before are a few other factors that contribute to its popularity.

Now, fans are comparing this skin with real-life houses. However, this isn’t the first time the skin has sold for as much as a house would cost in real life. AK-47 | Case Hardened is likely the single most valuable gun skin in all of CSGO, which was priced at $500,000.
