The 2021 Dust 2 Collection is a Valve-made collection of CS:GO skins introduced on 22 September 2021. The collection consists of 5 consumer skins, 4 industrial skins, 4 mil-spec skins, 3 restricted skins, 2 classified skins, and 1 covert skins.
The 2021 Dust 2 collection is the successor to the Dust 2 collection which was introduced over eight years prior on 14 August 2013.
CS:GO skins from this collection can be obtained by spending four stars in the Operation Riptide shop.
It is speculated within the community that this collection may appear in a souvenir package at the PGL Major Stockholm 2021.
The collection introduces the second gold effect skin after the FAMAS Commemoration from the CS20 Case.
The Case Hardened skin pattern makes its first appearance since 2013 when it was last used for the Five-SeveN. The MAC-10 Case Hardened is particularly popular amongst players seeking to obtain the elusive “blue-gem” pattern index.
The Fade skin pattern makes its second appearance in an operation collection after previously including the AWP Fade in the Control collection.
