In CS:GO, every weapon skin has a unique level of wear and tear, which determines how scratched or worn it will appear in the game. The level of wear is indicated by a float value, with higher values corresponding to worse conditions.
There are five different skin conditions in total, and each has a different price on the Steam Marketplace. Here are the five conditions, listed in order from best to worst:
Factory new is the best condition for CS:GO skins. Float values range between 0.00 and 0.07.
Factor new will have minimal-to-no scratches but are generally the most expensive condition.
Minimal wear is the second-best condition for CS:GO Skins. Float values range between 0.07 and 0.15.
A good float value can make minimal wear skins look just as good as factory new skins. We recommend you inspect and check the float value of a skin in-game before you make a purchase.
Field-tested skins range between the float value of 0.15 and 0.38.
Field-tested skins tend to cost significantly less than minimal wear and factory new. Making them a great option for anyone who is shopping on a budget.
Well-worn is the second worse condition for CS:GO skins. Float values range between 0.38 and 0.45.
Well-worn skins have noticeable scratches and small sections missing. We recommend you stay-away from well-worn and purchase field-tested instead.
Battle-scarred is the worst condition for CS:GO skins. Float values range between 0.45 and 1.00.
Battle-scarred skins will have large sections of the skin missing, and colors lack vibrance.
Factory new skins are the most desirable condition, but they are more expensive than skins in other conditions. Before purchasing a skin, it’s a good idea to check its float value and inspect it in-game to ensure you’re getting a good deal. This will help you avoid paying a high price for a skin with a low float value for its condition.
