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!

Next is some interesting gameplay changes, such as changes to damage, changes to scopes, new water, and finally bullet penetration through the water.

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.
