Have you ever tried CS:GO trading? If you haven’t, then you should! You might be skeptical at first, but boy, you would love it once you try!
There are so many questions around CS:GO trading especially from beginners, and one of them would be what are the items I should and should not trade?
Today, we’ll answer that question.
ITEMS TO TRADE
It’s best to invest in weapons that have a high chance of increasing in value. Such collections are the following in no particular order:
- Nuke, Overpass, Vertigo
- Baggage, Bank, Alpha
- Assault, Aztec, Arms Deal 1
- Cache, Cobblestone, Winter Offensive
- eSports 2013, Bravo, Arms Deal 2
- eSports 2013, Winter, Arms Deal 3
- Dust, Militia
These are the items that have a great possibility of having a higher worth later on. It’s also advisable for you to invest in major event capsules such as ESL cologne and Katowice.
ITEMS NOT TO TRADE
On the other hand, the following are the weapons you should avoid getting. Note that they’re listed in alphabetical order.
- Dual Berettas
Why should you avoid them, you ask? Because they’re difficult to sell. However, their classified or restricted versions are easy to trade.
Remember not to get new items too.
