The Huntsman Weapon Case is a weapon case in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. It is the second community case consisting of 22 weapon skins from the Steam Workshop. It was released on May 1st, 2014 along side the Bank Collection. It requires a Huntsman Weapon Case Key to be opened. There is a rare chance to acquire a Huntsman Knife when opening the case. On June 11th, 2014, the Huntsman Weapon Case was updated, along with the Community Sticker Capsule 1 due to a copyright infringement[1][2][3]. The M4A4 - Howl was heavily altered & made contraband, while five other weapon skins were also removed due to a contributor of the M4A4 - Howl being affiliated with them. Six new weapon skins were added to replace these skins, but all of the removed skins can still be acquired via trade up contracts except for the M4A4 - Howl.


*: Added on June 11th, 2014 in respone to copyright infringement claims from Canis Ulbus, who had their art work stolen for use on the M4A4 - Howl. The USP-S | Orion, P90 | Desert Warfare, CZ-75 | Poison Dart, MAC-10 | Curse, & Dual Barretas | Retribution were all contributions to the Steam Workshop from someone who worked on the M4A4 - Howl therefore, they were all also removed from the case, but were not given contraband status since they did not need to be changed & were original art.


Removed Contents



  • Tec-9 | Isaac is created by the same creator as the Asiimov family of skins, and is originally uploaded as Tec-9 | Asiimov, & is also named after science fiction author Isaac Asimov.
  • Auzzii & Sic (contributors on the stolen M4A4 | Howl) were both removed from The Huntsman Collection due to copyright reasons. Auzii also created a sticker called Howling Dawn which was also made into the contraband. Several stickers created by Sic were also removed at the time, including the Winged Defuser & Harp of War but much like his other skins removed from the case they were not made contraband.
  • The Huntsman Collection is the largest collection ever, as it contains 22 skins if you include the M4A4 - Howl, which is also the only contraband skin in the game.
