Hackers steal $2m worth of CS:GO skins from collector

"This is the most expensive inventory of all time."

Anyone who plays Counter-Strike: Global Offensive knows that it's a cosmetic collector first and first-person shooter second.

Some players take their cosmetic inventory very seriously, which they can buy and sell for hundreds of pounds.

Now one unfortunate collector claims their entire inventory - worth an estimated $2m - has been stolen by hackers (thanks, PCGamesN).

In a tweet, the collector ohnePixel asserts this constituded "the most expensive inventory of all time", which contained some of the most legendary items in the CS:GO meta.

The 'no-star' karambit and the '#1 blue gem' variant of the karambit case-hardened knife is said to be worth around $1.4m USD alone.

According to ohnePixel, half of the inventory has already been sold, with the other half being transferred to the hacker(s)' Steam account and are currently on trading hold.

It's unclear how ohnePixel's Steam account was compromised, but they say they are now desperately trying to reach support staff at Valve to return control of their account.
