Best CS:GO Knife Commands

CS:GO knife is one of the most important weapons. But not because you’re doing something with it. 99% of the time, you won’t get to use it actively. This weapon is useful because you can run faster with it. And that means you’ll be holding it at every start of a round.

Furthermore, you’ll have to switch to your knife whenever you need to move more quickly and have the confidence that you won’t encounter an enemy. If you expect to get involved in a duel, holding your knife or running can be bad ideas. But if you know you’re safe and just need to run somewhere as fast as possible, the knife will significantly increase your movement speed.

Stylistic Considerations

Using your knife or putting it on display is a great opportunity to show other players just how passionate you are about the game. And one way to do it is to own a knife skin. It can be a very basic one, or it can be a very expensive one. 

Obviously, if you own an expensive knife skin, people will immediately know you mean business. But even a basic skin is better than the default, showing that you’re heavily invested in the game. For casuals who only play once a week, this is not necessary. 

But for aspiring pros and higher-tier players who care about the impression they make, owning a good knife skin is similar to owning a great suit or a good car. Other players’ perception of you will be impacted by it.

Some of CS:GO’s most famous players, such as s1mple and m0NESY, are famous for their top-tier CS:GO skins. Their inventories are easily worth more than $50.000 and they’re not shy about it.

Obtaining CS:GO skins can be done using a platform like Lootbear. You can also make purchases on the Steam Market, but the prices are higher and you don’t get the rent option. With Lootbear, you can rent a skin for a special occasion instead of buying it. And that means that you can own for a few days or weeks even the coolest-looking skins in CS:GO, for relatively small amounts.

Skins you would never be able to use otherwise without paying thousands of dollars are available for you for affordable amounts. You can do it quite easily if you’ve dreamt of impressing your friends with a rare Karambit skin.
