Weapon Cases are a kind of item in Critical Ops that when opened by a player, it will offer them a random weapon skin or a cosmetic knife. Each weapon case costs a certain number of orange credits, depending on the type of case purchased.
To obtain weapon cases, one must have at least 200 credits, which can open one case. For every case opened, the player will be offered a random skin for a random weapon, or in a rare chance, a cosmetic knife.
A free case is offered in the Tutorial for new accounts which have not been previously used to play the game.
Standard cases are the most basic of the cases available. Opening a standard case will most likely offer the player skins of low rarity, and the chances of obtaining skins of higher tiers are very low.
Premium cases are notably more expensive than their standard counterparts, costing a hefty 700 credits, but opening one will guarantee the player a Tier 3 skin or higher. The odds of obtaining high-tier skins are increased when opening one of these special cases.
