Weekly Care Package drops have arrived as a new feature in CS2, giving players the opportunity to earn new skins, cases, and items after each reset.

While Counter-Strike 2 is primarily a tactical game of offence and defence in a first-person setting, getting cool skins and other cosmetics is also a big part of the experience for many people. I certainly find it sweeter to get a kill in Premier Mode when I can add its count to my StatTrak weapon. With new skins available for just playing the game, you'll definitely be looking forward to your next Weekly Care Package drop.
