How to Find Out the History of a CS2 Skin?

There are several ways to check the skin’s characteristics, like viewing basic info from Steam, but to get some info on the item’s history you should turn to third-party websites. Let’s review these options in more detail.


Neither Steam Market nor CS2 built-in features show the full history of your skins. From your inventory, you can only check the item’s name, exterior, collection, price, volume, and the stickers applied, and that’s it.

But what’s more important, the “Item Showcase” allows you to view the skin’s previous owners. As you can see on the screenshot, the M4A1-S we are inspecting had 2 owners before the current one.
