Counter-Strike Wiki

The Shadow Case is a weapon case consisting of 16 community-made weapon skins released as part of the September 18, 2015 update. It requires a Shadow Case Key to be opened. There is a tiny chance to unbox a pair of Shadow Daggers.




  • The weapons selected for the Shadow Case were announced prior to the actual skins' choosing via a steam community post. This is the first time this was done publicly.[1]
    • This also allowed skin authors to solicit directly to be included in the upcoming case, much like what was already being done with operations.
    • Originally, the G3SG1 was going to be a covert weapon in this case but was later swapped with the USP-S.
  • On the M249 | Nebula Crusader, the six-digit score counter shown is located at the exact same location where the StatTrak™ counter is on the M249. The score counter would be perfectly covered by the StatTrak™ counter on a StatTrak™ version of the skin.[2]
  • The XM1014 | Scumbria is based on the Scumbria fish pattern, as well as the Five-SeveN | Scumbria in the Gamma 2 Case.
