Skins and weapons in CS:GO ranges from cents up to thousands of dollars. However, not everyone knows about it.
In the world of CS:GO, skins and weapons are valued by players and traders around the web. Some are collectors who are willing to pay thousands of dollars for a very rare special item such as the knife which Nufo stumbled upon.
American streamer Melissa Nufo is new to the game Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, which gives her a lot of room to know more about the game, including unfamiliar skins and weapons. Nufo plays more of a console shooters like Call of Duty. She also attends CoD events more often.
On Thursday, January 4, luck struck her while streaming CS:GO. She opened a case which contained a Falchion Marble Blade. This made a lot of CS:GO players envious of her; unlocking such rare item that easily.
As Melissa is new to the game, she has little knowledge about the value of different items. Falchion Marble Blade is actually worth over $200 on a lot of trading websites.
She tweeted that it’s her first time opening a case on stream and boy, thousands of players are really jealous. It’s clear in her expression in the video clip she posted that she’s new to the game and didn’t have any idea on how much it was worth.

Players who are familiar with the item joined the thread asking on how did she kept her cool. Some got hurt that she didn’t get hyped about it. One Twitter user shared that she has already opened hundred of cases and got nothing out of it (or maybe she did but with low value). On NuFo’s replies, she explained that she’s new to the game.
Imagine a long-time CS:GO player opening that case with a $200 worth of item. That player would probably go nuts.
