Best CSGO Blast Paris Major 2023 Souvenir Package To Choose

The best time of the year; opening CSGO souvenir packages to the sound of s1mple's AWP working its magic through to the finals of the Blast Paris major of 2023. With Majors come updated souvenir packages to update the souvenir skins with the new player stickers.

Therefore, we are going to see the likes of OhnePixel, Arrow, and other various skin YouTuber's freaking out to clips of some of you lucky folks hitting big on the new souvenir cases.  You've got to decide where you're going to hit big, and that deciding factor comes down to whatever is most profitable and the skins inside of the cases.

Best CSGO Souvenir Skins From BLAST Paris Major 2023

Looking at the package selection, we have Ancient, Overpass, Inferno, Anubis, Mirage, Vertigo, and Nuke collections. 

To break it down, here are the top skins from each collection:

  • AWP | Desert Hydra - Mirage collection 
  • M4A1-S | Imminent Danger - Vertigo collection
  • M4A4 | Eyes of Horus - Anubis collection 
  • M4A1-S | Welcome to the Jungle - Ancient collection
  • M4A1-S | Master Piece - Overpass collection
  • M4A1-S | Control Pannel - Nuke collection 
  • SG 553 | Integrale - Inferno collection 

We have quite the selection here, but collections of the Mirage and Ancient definitely take the pie. Before discussing this further, please note that gambling may be fun, but please don't get carried away; you likely won't succeed. 20220316_picture1-min

Best CSGO Souvenir Package - Mirage collection 

At number one, the Mirage collection sweeps the floor with the other collections offering a beautifully designed AWP skin that competes with the likes of other tier-one items, such as the AWP Medusa and AWP fade. Additionally, once you open this bad boy, you're a staggering £1,500 in profit. However, if you're not as lucky to open the Desert Hydra (probably the case), you'll have access to the rest of the lower tier's iconic souvenir skins:

  • Desert Eagle | Fennec Fox 
  • Glock - 18 | Pink DDPAT 
  • USP-S | Purple DDPAT 

Considering most collections offer a singular semi-decent skin, the Mirage collection offers various skins that are incredibly aesthetically pleasing. The Fennec Fox, especially the most eye-catching Desert Eagle skin in the game, is a part of the Mirage collection; now, where you most definitely won't unbox it, it's still worth the respect! 

Both in profit and aesthetics, the Mirage collection takes the other collections by storm, offering the most popular collection. Although taking the trophy, we need to first understand the collection drop statistics, which will apply to all other collection statistics.

What is the drop rate of the Desert Hydra souvenir?

Sorry to say, but the souvenir drop rates are actually a lot lower than typical cases. For example, within normal cases, the chances of getting a knife are 1/400 (0.25%), meaning statically, for every £800 you spend, you'll receive a knife. Whereas souvenir cases are slightly (a lot) worse than those drop rates:

Covert (red) AWP | Desert Hydra  0.026% (1 in 3906 cases) 
Classified (Pink)  Desert Eagle | Fennec Fox 0.128% (5 in 3906 cases)
Restricted (Purple) Glock - 18 | Pink DDPAT  0.64% (25/3906 cases) 
Mil spec (Blue) USP-S | Purple DDPAT  3.2% (125/3906 cases)
Industrial (light blue) Famas | CaliCamo 16.001% (625/3906 cases)
Consumer (grey) P250 | Drought  80.005% (3125/3906 cases)


Ancient Collection Souvenir Package 

As the runners-up, the Ancient Collection has been selected to act as the second-best collection within the Blast Paris Major of 2023. Overlooked, undervalued, and unnoticed, the M4A1-S Welcome to the Jungle presents one of the coolest skin designs since the AWP Doodle Lore. The bright colors and unique design offer concepts seen in little other skins, and with the approach of CS2 and the implementation of Souce 2, these bright colors are going to dominate the scene.

Let's take a look at the other skins within the collection:

  • AK-47 | Panthera Onca 
  • Mac-10 | Gold Brick
  • Galil AR | Dusk Ruins 

This collection offers a series of animal-oriented skins, allowing players to further develop an animal theme within their inventory. Additionally, the skins within this collection offer an "Indiana Jones" type vibe, having players use camouflaged weapons to roam the jungle of Ancient, especially with the Mac-10 | Gold Brick acting as the treasure. If you're one of the lucky few to unbox any of these items, consider yourself lucky, as the drop chances for these weapons are next to zero! 

With consideration of other collections, we should shout out some honorable mentions for skins that are unique and overlooked, similar to the Ancient collection:

  • M4A1-S | Imminent Danger - Vertigo collection 
  • FAMAS | Waters of Nephthys - Anubis collection 
  • MP7 | Fade - Inferno collection 
  • USP-S | Road Rash - Overpass collection
  • SG 553 | Hazard Pay - Vertigo collection 

What skins should I invest in CSGO?

All these skins will be incredibly hard to unbox, but by now, they will be featured on various sites and the Steam market for a much better deal. Whether you want to flex your skin to your friends or treat yourself in light of the Blast Paris Major, these skins will all act as a perfect compliment to your inventory. With the approach of Source 2, skin prices are about to explode, with them already flying through the roof. In terms of investments, keep a close eye on collection skins as they begin to fluctuate heavily in price every time a new major occurs. 

Collection skins are always a tricky subject in terms of investments; with their price being unstable, whenever new souvenir stickers drop, they tend to either increase or decrease momentarily. For example, the Havoc collection AWP | Silk Tiger (Factory New) was valued at over £300 when the skin was initially introduced, then considerably dropped to the price of £150 over the last eighteen months. 

With consideration of CS2 releasing this summer, it is recommended that you purchase skins that are incredibly unique within their design. Such as the Anubis collection FAMAS Waters of Nephthys (for example), as the new skin coloring and design of the skin offer a new aesthetic to CSGO in general, allowing us to infer this skin was designed for CS2. More examples of these skins: Print Stream skins, Desert Hydra, Gem knives (Doppler Sapphire, Ruby, and Black Pearl), and skins similar to this uniqueness will certainly reflect nicely over to CS2, possibly raising their current prices.
