He Stole $2 Million Worth of CSGO Skins

A hacker stole over $2 million in skins and items frin CS:GO. They were part of what was likely the most expensive inventory in the game's history.

As reported by Dotesport a huge treasure trove of digital items for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive has reportedly been stolen from the collection of a certain Steam user.

Popular rare CS:GO skin collector known as ohnePixel reported on his Twitter account that hackers stole skins worth an estimated $2 million from another player. The inventory included seven commemorative AWP Dragon Lore skins, which are among the most expensive items that can be owned by players of the cult online shooter. In addition, the hacker helped themselves to a legendary "no-star" karambit and the "#1 blue gem" karambit with hardened casing, whose value is estimated at around 1.4 million dollars (via PCGamesN).

Ohnepixel appealed to the developers of CS:GO and Steam employees for contact to help the victim recover their items. According to the well-known collector, the victim's Steam account was apparently compromised over the past week, with hackers changing the profile name and associated email.

According to ohnePixel, about half of the skins have already been sold, while the other half, located on the hacker's Steam account, is waiting to be locked. Apparently, the thief did not want to cash in on his prey, as he traded some of the inventory for the market price listed on the platform.
