New Titan Printstream craft is now the most expensive M4A1-S
Sep 18, 2023
A new most expensive M4A1-S has been crowed in the world of CS skins, with the fan-favorite Prinstream finally taking the title.
Valve hit a goldmine with the Prinstream skin line. Created by JTPNZ and first appearing in the Operation Broken Fang case, the skin’s pearlescent finish and excellent sticker compatibility have made it extremely coveted. The M4A1-S version is the most desirable, with StatTrak™ factory new versions selling for well over $1,200. However, the ultra-pricy skin has hit a new high with a 4x Katowice 2014 Titan craft made by a major high-roller. Here’s what the skin looks like and why it’s now considered the most expensive M4A1-S in the world.
The base skin is the 46th cleanest M4A1-S | Prinstream and the fourth-best StatTrak™ version in the world with a float value of 0.00065717. It’s owned by a Chinese skin collector who goes by the name of 阿乐. They also own several other top-tier crafts including multiple AK-47 | Wild Lotus 4x Kato holos and a 4x Titan Holo AWP | Medusa. Based on ownership history, it’s possible that the stickers were applied by fellow Chinese CSGO baller Lannotfound.
4x Titan Holo Prinstream becomes most expensive M4A1-S
The factory new StatTrak™ M4A1-S | Printstream with four Katowice 2014 Titan Holos is among the most expensive CT rifles in the world, but what would be a fair selling price?
Our appraisal comes from the price of the applied stickers along with the price of the base skin itself. The Titans are worth approximately $320,000 unapplied and applied stickers usually have their value cut by around 70%. The base skin is even harder to judge, but the number ten StatTrak™ Prinstream with three times the wear is currently on sale for just under $7,000. For the sake of convenience, let’s say that the base skin synergized with the stickers would sell for around $15,000.
With that estimation, this 4x Titan Holo Printstream would be worth $111,000 in an unpressured market deal, but pricechecking skins at this level is very difficult. There are several factors at play, including the imminent release of CS2. The owner will most likely wait years to sell it, if ever, and will probably use it as a playskin or loan it to pro players for use in tournaments.
All maps are now available in CS2, what does it mean?
Poor Inferno players.
