Tec-9 | Sandstorm was added to the game on February 20, 2014, as part of The Phoenix Collection, which was released alongside the start of Operation Phoenix. The skin was created by Algis.
The entire body of the pistol is adorned with an abstract pattern painted in various shades of tan and purple.
Float Value of the skin ranges from 0.10 to 0.70, which makes Tec-9 | Sandstorm available in all conditions except Factory New.
