Operation Hydra Case

An unopened Operation Hydra Case

The Operation Hydra Case is a CS2/CS:GO weapon case introduced 7 years ago on 23 May 2017 as part of the "Operation Hydra" update. The weapon case contains CS2/CS:GO skins from The Operation Hydra Collection.

It was the first operation case to be severely restricted in volume with each player only being eligible to obtain up to a maximum of 9 cases. As a result this heavily limited the total number of Hydra cases that were awarded to operation pass holders, which in turn has driven up the price of the case higher than any other operation case (with the exception of the Bravo case).

At the conclusion of Operation Hydra the case was immediately moved to the rare drop pool.
