Highest Selling Items From New PUBG Crates

With the launch of the new update earlier this week PUBG received its first set of new crates since the game left early access and moved into release.  Since dropping onto live servers they have quickly become some of the most wanted items on the marketplace.

While these items are still new to the market two of the items from the DESPERADO CRATE are currently selling for over $1,000 each, the CLOTH MASK (LEOPARD) and the LEATHER HOODIE (WHITE).

Due to the limited availability of these items they are currently the highest selling skins in the game, however, as more people unlock them it will be interesting to see what it does to the price on the market.

Along with the DESPERADO CRATE, the BIKER CRATE was also released.  The top-ranking skins within this crate are currently the Sleeveless Biker Jacket (Black) and the CLOTH MASK (CHECKERED).

Overall the crates have been a nice addition to the game and have been well received by the community. Out of all the new skins which one is your favorite and what items would you like to see added in the future?

Now on OPSkins: CryptoKitties!

Today, the global ETH blockchain-based gaming phenomenon meets the skins trading market. That’s right – CryptoKitties can be purchased and sold on OPSkins. Browse listings here.

You’re a skin trader, why should you care about digital cat trading? Because the CryptoKitties are addictingly fun, are so popular that at one point were responsible for 15% of all transactions on the Ethereum network, and can be or become incredibly valuable.

Like skins, CryptoKitties are one-of-a-kind collectible digital items that can vary in price from less than a dollar to $100,000+.

You can purchase CryptoKitties with either your OPSkins Wallet Funds account balance or with WAX Tokens.

Give them a try when they go live tomorrow and let us know what you think!

You Can Now Use WAX Tokens on OPSkins!

Update: While WAX is in the alpha phase on OPSkins, daily transaction limits are subject to change. The limit amount is dynamic and can fluctuate based on which features are being tested. The limits will eventually be raised or lifted. Thank you for your patience while we work to make WAX on OPSkins the best that it can be.

WAX is now live on OPSkins! Any item on OPSkins can be bought and sold using WAX Tokens, which is now the cheapest, fastest, and easiest way to trade on our marketplace.

With this implementation comes a host of new features, which we’re here to break down for you:

Using WAX Tokens on OPSkins:

In the past, you could transact on OPSkins using two currencies: OPSkins Wallet Funds and Operation Points. WAX is now the third currency.

WAX Token

Viewing your account balances:

When you visit your Account page, you’ll see some new sections. The first is Account Balance > View Account Balances. Click on that and you’ll see a dropdown that shows your account balances of each of the three currencies.

WAX Token

Depositing WAX Tokens to your OPSkins Account Balance:

To deposit WAX Tokens to your Account Balance, you can click the + sign next to WAX in the Account Balances section of your Account page.  Send your WAX Tokens to the ETH address provided. You can also click “Deposit WAX Tokens” on the Add Funds page.

WAX Token

Withdrawing your WAX Tokens:

With WAX, there are no traditional “cashouts” like with other payment processors. Instead, you’ll be withdrawing your WAX Tokens to an ERC-20 compatible wallet address of your choice. The official wallet partner of WAX is Jaxx.io, but you can use any ERC-20 compatible wallet. On your Account Balances section of your Account page, click the – sign next to WAX. Enter the amount of WAX you wish to withdraw, the wallet address, and click withdraw. Please note that as with all other payment methods, you can only withdraw WAX Tokens that you earned from item sales – you cannot withdraw WAX Tokens that you deposited.

WAX Tokens

View your Cryptocurrency Withdraw & Transaction History:

Your Cryptocurrency Withdraw History can be found at the bottom of your account page.

WAX Token

As well as your transaction history:

WAX Token

Sellers can choose to accept WAX Tokens as payment:

Sellers can choose to accept any currency of their choice (although accepting USD is mandatory for every OPSkins account). By default, the proceeds from item sales will be deposited to the sellers OPSkins Wallet Funds and converted to USD as it’s been done in the past. However, sellers can now choose to accept WAX if the buyer pays for the item with WAX. If you indicate that you wish to accept WAX, the tokens will be deposited directly into your WAX account balance, rather than your OPSkins Wallet Funds. To change these settings, click “Currencies Accepted” on your Account page and check the box next to “Accept WAX”.

WAX Token

Buyers can choose to view item prices and pay in WAX Tokens:

You can choose whether you wish to view items in WAX pricing or just USD. To change this, visit Advanced Options > Show Cryptocurrency Price and select WAX from the drop down.

Item prices will appear as such:

WAX Token

To pay with WAX Tokens, when you visit your shopping cart you will have the option to “Pay with Cryptocurrency?” Select WAX Token here.

WAX Token

Convert your OPSkins Wallet Funds to WAX Tokens:

You can convert your USD to WAX and vice versa. To do this, click your name to reach the drop down menu and select “Convert Balances”. Here, you can choose the type of fund you wish to convert – either funds that are withdrawable/cashoutable (funds earned from item sales), or transfer funds that are not withdrawable/cashoutable (funds added via the Add Funds page or deposited to your WAX account balance). 

Remember – as with all other payment processors, you can only withdraw or cashout funds earned from item sales, so for example if you have USD that you added to your OPSkins Wallet Funds via PayPal, you can convert it to WAX via the “transfer only” option, but you cannot withdraw that WAX. However if you have OPSkins Wallet Funds that you earned from item sales, you can convert that to WAX via the “Available for Withdrawal” option and withdraw that WAX to an ERC-20 compatible wallet.

WAX Token

Click the fund you wish to convert, enter the amount, and click calculate to see how much of the other fund type you will receive. If you like what you see, click “Convert” and your wallet balances will update accordingly.

That’s it! Many more updates to WAX on OPSkins will be coming in the future, so stay tuned! Let us know what you think in the comments.

PUBG Releases Desert Map Screenshots, Weapon, and Vehicle

With the continued excitement for PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS’ new desert map (now revealed to be “Miramar”), the creators of the wildly popular battle royale game have made several more announcements in the last couple of days about the map. After debuting several weapons, and the data mining community uncovering a plethora of skins that we should be expecting in PUBG down the road, the future is looking bright and full of surprises.

First and foremost, the long sought-after details of Miramar itself have been released. With a fresh terrain for epic battles to take place in, BlueHole has shared with us the official bird’s-eye view of Miramar as well as its points of interest. From their announcement:

Los Leones

  • The largest city in the region, Los Leones features ample shopping, a skyline filled with new construction, and a glorious, golden-hued City Center. Players should secure high vantage points by exploring the numerous construction sites, and loot for gear in the cavernous, abandoned commercial buildings.

El Pozo

  • El Pozo is a city known for its large industrial and entertainment districts. Players can test themselves against all comers in the Luchador Arena, put their motorcycle skills to the test In the death bowl, or hunt in the ruins of the long dead textile factories.

Monte Nuevo

  • Monte Nuevo is the picture of a town besieged. Ramshackle walls built to protect its residents now allow players ample cover to explore the well-stocked compound.

Valle del Mar

  • Valle del Mar is a colorful oceanside town bisected by the De Toro bridge. To the West of the bridge is a quaint school, and to the East, a beautiful church. The key to holding this town is bridge control, as it’s the only direct route between mainland and the island.

La Cobreria

  • The shipping and transport capitol of Miramar, La Cobrería’s most prominent feature is it’s enormous Rail Yard. Here, players will hunt and be hunted among the half-buried cargo of a long dead industry. Careful players should loot the schools and campuses that dot this town before attempting to hold the Yard.

San Martin

  • San Martín is located just west of Hacienda Del Patrón. Checkpoints and barriers have transformed this once-quiet small town into a war zone. Both sides of the town have overlooks, so careful players should scout first, before charging into town.

Pecado

  • Once a tourist destination featuring the largest casino in the region, Pecado continues to thrill players to this day with its mix of high-value loot and dangerous sightlines. Aggressive players will immediately loot the Arena and Casino, but savvy players should check out the 4 story hotels between them.

Chumacera

  • Chumacera is the husk of Miramar’s once thriving textile industry. Long abandoned factories overlook a main road lined with residential and commercial buildings. Verticality in both the buildings and terrain make this town an exciting location to loot- high risk, high opportunity!

Additionally, it was revealed that another desert map exclusive gun would be joining the roster, this time in the form of a lever-action shotgun known as the Win94. This weapon will be a world spawn and not exclusive to crates.

A pickup truck will also be joining the fight as a Miramar exclusive. There is a good chance you will be able to fit a fully stacked team by seating two in the front and two in the back as gunners.

It’s safe to say that we’ve got a lot to look forward to when Miramar is finally released. Until then, we anxiously count down the days until this content drop lands in PUBG for all of us to enjoy.

NEW: Introducing the OPSkins Trade Bot

You asked, and we listened! We have launched the beta version of our latest feature for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive the OPSkins Trade Bot. Whether you’re looking to freshen up your existing inventory for something better, or unload unwanted inventory for a new skin to rock, the OPSkins Trade Bot is a brand-new feature that allows you to trade quickly and efficiently. How does it work? Read on:

What is the OPSkins Trade Bot?

The OPSkins Trade Bot enables you to trade skins from your current CS:GO skin collection for other CS:GO skins available on OPSkins. Looking for a better float? Have extra skins you would like to pool together for a knife? With the new OPSkins Trade Bot, you can quickly dump your old skins to trade for something new.

OPSkins Trade Bot Features

When you first land on the OPSkins Trade Bot page you will notice several different features that are available. We have broken these features down to give you a better understanding of how to use the OPSkins Trade Bot, they’re detailed here from left to right:

Left – MY ITEMS / MY OFFER:

Here you will select the list of skins that you currently have available to trade and add them to “MY OFFER.” In your inventory tab you have three different functions: a search bar, Sort By, and refresh. Search allows you to search for a specific skin in your inventory, Sort By allows you to organize skins based on price, and refresh which will refresh your inventory to make sure your latest items are shown. Note: you may click on the item and add it to “MY OFFER” without finalizing the trade. Only after you click the big orange TRADE button does the transaction complete. The total amount of the items you have selected to trade will appear in green in the top right of that section.

Middle – Selecting your New Skins:

Once you have selected the items that you wish to trade, it’s time to find the items that you would like to trade for in the list of items available from OPSkins. You can narrow them down with the following filters:

Price Range: Here you can set the price range of the items you are looking to obtian. Use the sliders to set the minimum and maximum value of the skins you want.

Exterior Quality: Here you can select the exterior quality of the skins you are looking to obtain, from Battle Scared all the way to Factory New. By setting the exterior quality it will only show skins of the exterior quality you have selected. You can’t select more than one, but you can select all.

Type: Here you can filter the skins you are looking for to a certain type. It can range from all skins currently available for trade, to certain types that include pistols, smgs, shotguns, rifles, snipers, keys, and of course everyone’s favorite – knives. You can choose multiple options here.

StatTrak: Here you can filter between StatTrak weapons and non-StatTrak weapons to better narrow down your search for the perfect skin.

Rates: These are the rates for each item type. For example if you’re trading a knife from MY ITEMS, you’ll get 99% of the knife’s average price on the trade. If you’re receiving a knife from OPSKINS’ OFFER, you’ll pay 105% of the knife’s average price for the trade.

Right – OPSKINS’ OFFER:

Select the new items you want to get by clicking on them, which adds them to the OPSKINS OFFER. You can also use the search bar and Sort By here to help you find the items that match the filters you set in the middle section. By mousing over the item, you can choose to view it on OPSkins, in Steam, or inspect the item. Note: you may click on the item and add it to OPSKINS’ OFFER without finalizing the trade. Only after you click the big orange TRADE button does the transaction complete. The total amount of the items in the OPSKINS’ OFFER will appear in blue in the top left of that section.

Completing the Trade

Now that you have selected the items you’re unloading and which items you’re exchanging them for, it’s time to complete the trade.

Click the big orange TRADE button. You will get a Steam trade offer. Accept the trade offer and complete the transaction.

Give it a try, and let us know what you think!

The UI will finally be getting an update with this patch as well, which is something that players have requested for a while. From the In-game Hud, to the inclusion of a new minimap the whole UI of the game has been touched-up or redesigned.
