Custom weapon skin concepts are a popular topic among CS:GO fans but a new idea making the rounds might be one of the most unique yet. 

The knife is the basic melee weapon in Counter-Strike and there are thousands upon thousands of skins available to unlock for it.

Now, a new knife skin concept is gaining popularity among CS:GO fans but it might have a tough time becoming an actual, useable skin.

It’s multiple knives in one!

Reddit user Defoxx posted a photoshopped image of a CS:GO character holding a Swiss Army Knife along with a request to have it added to the game, and it quickly shot to the top of the r/GlobalOffensive subreddit.

They also suggested that each time you pull out the weapon, a different tool would appear at random. So you could find yourself dispatching opponents with a tactical corkscrew or something.

Even though the skin is great idea, it might have a tough time finding it’s way into the game itself according to a user in the comments.

Reddit user GISP pointed out that Victorinox, the company that makes the Swiss Army Knife, doesn’t give permission to use it in any games, movies or other media.

The discussion did bring up another favorite knife skin concept, one that isn’t protected by any pesky copyright restrictions – the simple plastic knife.

Now that’s a knife

The plastic knife concept was cooked up all the way back in March of 2015 by YouTuber sparkwire and it’s not just one little utensil – they even included a whole box along with the weapon.

Occasionally the plastic knife will break, and your character pulls out another one from the box – whether spoons and forks can also be utilized is sadly unknown though.


CSGO legend KRIMZ mysteriously VAC banned

Fnatic and Counter-Strike legend Freddy ‘KRIMZ’ Johansson has been hit with a VAC ban out of the blue, and nobody seems to know why. 

When punishing cheaters in games like CS:GO, Dota 2, and even Rust, Valve rolls out VAC [Valve anti-cheat] bans that locks down an account – preventing users from playing on another VAC-secured game. 

These bans are, usually, handed out without any warning, and are typically permanent. Though, plenty of players have been able to get them overturned – be it because the ban was wrong in the first place, for example. 

On November 28, CS:GO players and fans alike noticed that Fnatic CS:GO star Freddy ‘KRIMZ’ Johansson had his account struck with a VAC ban – and nobody seems to know just why it happened. 

Krimz has played for Fnatic since 2016.

Astralis players Lucas ‘Bubzkji’ Andersen and Nicolai ‘device’ Reedtz were among the first to tweet about KRIMZ’s VAC ban – with the former chalking it down to a likely mistake. 

After word quickly got around about the ban, KRIMZ himself took to Twitter to ask for help from the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive developers in getting the VAC ban removed from his account – again, hinting at a mistake. 

“It seems that my account got vac banned. @CSGO can you fix this asap pls,” he posted shortly after the VAC ban was handed down, attaching a confused face emoji as well as the praying hands. 

As of writing, Krimz’s account still has a VAC ban attached to it, and there’s been no confirmation as to whether or not he’s cheated or if it’s a mistake. Though, there has been speculation about a possible wave surrounding players who use the esportal to find matches. 

If anything changes, be it the ban gets overturned or Valve makes a statement on the matter, we’ll be sure to update this article.
