XM1014 | Watchdog was added to the game on September 22, 2021, as part of the Operation Riptide Collection, which was released alongside the start of Operation Riptide. The skin was created by Zaphk and OniLolz.
The skin’s design is made in traditional Chinese style. The central part of the weapon is decorated with a bronze plate featuring an engraving of two lion heads. The barrel, handle, and buttstock have been painted with a green pattern resembling the texture of jade. Individual parts of the body are also decorated with bronze plates.
The skin's Float Value ranges from 0.00 to 1.00, which makes XM1014 | Watchdog available in all conditions. Small abrasions already appear on the weapon's body in Factory New condition. At levels of wear close to the maximum, the number and size of abrasions increase significantly, the skin looks noticeably darker.
The pattern index does not affect the skin's appearance.
The quality of XM1014 | Watchdog is Mil-Spec Grade. The skin has a StatTrak option.
XM1014 | Watchdog became popular after the release and remains in demand today.
