The 2021 Mirage 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 Mirage collection is the successor to the Mirage 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 appears to be the most popular within the operation riptide shop as players hope to obtain the elusive AWP Desert Hydra in either Factory New or in Battle-Scarred with a black scope.
The Glock-18 Pink DDPAT was first seen in an operation Shattered Web mission promotional image before it was quickly removed.
The collection introduces purple as a new colour variant for the DDPAT skins. Similarly, the 2021 Dust 2 collection introduced the first red DDPAT skin for the M4A4.
