Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, more popularly known as CS: GO is a popular multi-player game. This free-to-play game is not only exciting but also offers opportunities for players to earn real money. How is this possible? This is what we will talk about in the rest of this post.
In one article from Vice, the author makes a controversial claim – you can earn up to $12,000 in a day just by selling virtual guns. Before you think that it is one of those get-rich-quick schemes, this is not as easy as it sounds. Even seasoned gamers will agree that it is not an instant way to accumulate a fortune. However, the truth is it that it presents some attractive opportunities for you to earn money in ways you might not have previously imagined.
Ready to try your luck? Read on and we’ll share the best things that you can do to earn money simply by playing CS: GO.
One of the first things that you need to do is to find the best place to sell CSGO skins. The options will be plenty, each with their respective claim of being the best. You need to do your research to make sure that your valuable skins will not go to waste. Do not instantly believe what the buyers are saying. Perform due diligence to assess the possibilities and find one with the highest earning potential.
Before you are able to sell skins, however, there is one important thing – you need to earn them. They don’t just magically appear out of nowhere. One of the ways to earn these skins is to play CS: GO, although, this will take quite some time. Another way to earn skins is to visit a marketplace. This is where you will buy skins, and in the near future, sell it at a profit.
If you are looking for the best place to sell CS: GO skins, one that should be on the top of your list is the Steam Community Market. This is where you can find like-minded individuals, so it will be easy to find someone who has an interest in the skins that you have. This is also a popular choice because of safety. However, the biggest problem with this method is that you won’t be able to cash out any value of the sale. Instead, the money remains in your gaming account. Nonetheless, you can use this amount to facilitate various in-game transactions, such as when there is a new expensive item you would like to buy.
If you want to earn real money, it is best to rely on third-party marketplaces and private offers. A quick online search will reveal a long list of possibilities. There is also a Reddit forum where you can find interested buyers. Nonetheless, we would like to warn anyone who plans on doing this. This isn’t the safest. There have been several nightmare stories in the past where people got scammed. So, work only with the people you believe are genuine. Use your instincts.
Are you confident about your gaming skills? One of the best ways by which gamers make money is by joining a tournament. Big or small, local or international, these tournaments exist in many forms.
Being a popular game, there is no shortage of tournaments where people play CS: GO, not only for bragging rights but to also take home a huge sum of money. There are many platforms wherein you can see a list of the tournaments. In some cases, every player has to give money as a payment for the registration and after a series of rounds, the grand winner will take home the pot. There are also games that are sponsored.
Teach Other People
Believe it or not, there are many people who are willing to pay a certain amount just to be able to learn how to play CS: GO. This presents another perfect opportunity by which you will be able to learn from the game. Go online and look for someone who is interested to learn. It is seldom that you will find a person who will pay you to do it face to face. Rather, most of the tutorials are done online.
If this is your chosen route of earning money from CS: GO, one of the most important is to make sure that you are competent enough to teach someone the fundamental hacks of the game.
Place a Bet
This is a great way to earn money for people who are not particularly great at playing the game. If you cannot join tournaments, a good alternative to earn money is to place a bet on some of your favorite players who you believe will end up winning. Take the time to do your research so that you will know where to place your money. If you had the odds right, you can end up winning real money! Go big or go home! As they say, the higher the risk, the higher the return. However, make sure that your bets are smart and calculated to avoid wasting your money.
Sell Your Account
If you are planning to bid goodbye to the world of CS: GO, whatever your reason is, do not just leave your account hanging. If you want to earn money, you can sell it to interested buyers. The gaming community is not welcoming of this idea, but if you are left with no option but to move on from the game, why would you let your account go to waste? Especially if you are an excellent gamer, for sure, a lot of people will be interested in buying your account.
From the things that have been mentioned above, it is pretty much apparent that CS: GO is not just a fun game to play. Turns out, it is also a great opportunity for you to earn money. Whether it is selling skins, joining tournaments, or placing bets, among others, there are countless ways to make some cash out of it.
