AWP | Fade

03 December 2020

The AWP Fade is a CS:GO skin from The Control Collection and was introduced 3 years ago on 03 December 2020. The skin is Covert rarity. It has a float score between 0 and 0.08 making it available in wear conditions ranging from Factory New to Minimal Wear.

The Fade pattern uses an anodized airbrushed finish style.

The AWP Fade is arguably the most desirable skin from both the Control collection and Operation Broken Fang itself as it usually carries a price tag in the range of $900 - $1,000 on the Steam Community Market.

During the first year of its release the skin would fetch between $1,800 to $2,000. However, this would reduce in price with the release of subsequent operations and the over-saturation of AWP Fades being dropped.

Players could get a chance of obtaining the skin by spending four stars within the Operation Broken Fang shop. The odds of receiving the AWP Fade were less than 0.1%
