MAC-10 | Case Hardened was added to the game on September 22, 2021, as part of The 2021 Dust 2 Collection, which was released alongside the start of Operation Riptide.
The receiver of this SMG has been case-hardened, which provided it with blue, yellow and purple stains. The rest of the weapon remains unpainted.
The skin's Float Value ranges from 0.00 to 1.00, which makes MAC-10 | Case Hardened available in all conditions. Scratches and abrasions do not appear on the body of the weapon. At levels of wear close to the maximum, the receiver is coated with a layer of patina, which makes the skin look significantly darker.
The pattern index affects the texture overlay. Pattern variations with a predominance of clean blue areas on the play side (“Blue Gem”) are considered to be the rarest and the most expensive ones. The most common pattern variations are those with a predominance of yellow.
The quality of MAC-10 | Case Hardened is Restricted. The skin is not available with a StatTrak counter, has no souvenir version, and belongs to the “Case Hardened” series.
MAC-10 | Case Hardened became popular after the release and remains in demand today.
