Nova | Interlock was added to the game on September 22, 2021, as part of The 2021 Vertigo 2 Collection, which was released alongside the start of Operation Riptide.
The shotgun’s receiver and buttstock have been painted with a yellow and blue geometric pattern in the form of interweaving 3D objects. The handguard and the rear part of the buttstock are dark blue. The barrel is painted solid yellow.
The skin's Float Value ranges from 0.00 to 0.50, which makes Nova | Interlock available in all conditions. Small abrasions already appear on the body of the weapon in Factory New condition. At levels of wear close to the maximum, more than 50% of the paint layer is peeled off, the paint layer on the barrel is almost completely peeled off.
The pattern index affects the texture overlay. Rare or special variations of the pattern are absent.
The quality of Nova | Interlock is Mil-Spec Grade. The skin is not available with a StatTrak counter and has no souvenir version.
Nova | Interlock became popular after the release and remains in demand today.
