Case unboxing report: April 2023
An estimated 50.3 million CS:GO cases were unboxed in April 2023, according to calculations done by CS2 Case Tracker.
This estimate includes the staggering 9.0 million Anubis Collection Packages that were unboxed, which by far is the most opened case this month.
This package was released only six days ago, and is currently purchasable in-game for a prize lower than a key. Excluding this package, a total of 41.3 million cases were opened in April.

The data was collected from 1st of April till 1st of May 2023, a total of 30 days.

We had some issues this month
We experienced an issue with our website's unboxing statistics in the last two weeks of April, which was
likely caused by CSGOFloat being rate-limited while collecting float values from new weapon skins.
CSGOFloat provides wear information on skins in CS:GO, which we use to track daily high-float covert
skin additions from each weapon case, enabling us to provide accurate unboxing statistics.
On April 19th, CSGOFloat's communication with the CS:GO Game Coordinator was restricted, preventing
the registration of many new unboxed skins and leading to lower unboxing figures on our website.
This may have caused confusion among our visitors. However, CSGOFloat has made progress in resolving
their issues, as evidenced by their browser extension working properly and their database detecting
millions of new skins in recent days.
Nonetheless, CSGOFloat's Inspect API still blocks bots from accessing it, which could reduce the API's
use and therefore the detection of new skins. The recent release of the Anubis Collection Package
further complicates the interpretation of the CSGOFloat database's performance, as it may have affected
the unboxing demand for other cases.
Since our figures are calculated with covert skins, which are popular among the community and more
likely to be traded and sold on the Steam Community Market, we believe that they are still being detected
by the CSGOFloat database at a higher proportion, despite the recent restrictions on the Game Coordinator.
This is positive news for our website as it suggests that our unboxing figures may not have been impacted
as much by the restrictions.
We have attempted to contact CSGOFloat's developers for comment on this situation, but have not received
a response yet. While it is still too early to draw definitive conclusions on how much Valve's restrictions
have impacted our ability to report accurate numbers, we believe the issue has been somewhat resolved.
We will continue to monitor the situation and keep our visitors informed.
