How to Get Agents in CS2

Agent skins have been in Counter-Strike for a long time, and retained their popularity despite the balance issues they allegedly create. In any case, having an agent in your inventory is prestigious and allows you to stand out among everyone else in the lobby if you want to. In CS:GO, you could get agents simply by completing an operation, which is sadly no longer a viable option (well, unless Valve launches a new one soon). So, how to get different agents in CS2? There are several ways, and we will cover them all in this article. Keep reading!


The first and most obvious option of how to get operator skins in CS2 is the Steam community market. In fact, it is no different than buying any other skin. While agent skins aren’t as expensive as knives or gloves, they’re still some of the most sought-after cosmetics in this game and can cost quite a lot of money.

Just go to the Steam Market, select Counter-Strike 2, and then narrow down the search via the Show Advanced Options menu. Type in the word “Agent” and hit the “Search” button, or check the “Agent” box. Here you go—select an agent you like and buy the skin.

Want to know how to get CS2 agents without spending money? Alright, we’ve got you covered. There is always an option to simply trade with a friend or a random player you happen to know. Not all CS2 gamers like the concept of agent skins, so they’ll likely be more than happy to part with them in exchange for an item or two from your inventory. Just find your friend’s Steam profile, send a trade offer under the Trading section, and you’re done. Similarly, you can try searching for someone who owns a skin you need and make them a trade offer.

If you can arrange a good deal, this is a great way to get what you need without investing additional money. The disadvantage of this method is the difficulty of finding a user who both has the item you need and is willing to trade. You should also keep in mind that CS2 community seems to attract all sorts of frauds and scams, so be careful when dealing with strangers.

To attract a larger audience, many streamers hold regular lotteries for their subscribers. In all likelihood, you will have the opportunity to get an agent skin on some of those streams. The main disadvantage of this method is, well, the low chances of actually getting the prize, as it will be randomized between potentially thousands of participants.


If you’re still wondering how to get agents in CS2, it’s time to talk about third-party trading marketplaces. While agent skins are rare items and may be hard to come by, you’ll probably be able to find some if you search enough online stores. Those marketplaces generally operate similarly to the Steam market: select an item you want to obtain, transfer the funds, and it’s yours. However, keep in mind the security risks when dealing with any third-party websites, as unlike Valve’s official shop those platforms aren’t legally obligated to preserve your personal data or protect you from fraudsters.

Now that we’ve discussed the common ways to get agent skins in CS2, you should have a pretty good idea of how you can sell those

There are three options for selling agent skins:

  1. Steam Community Market. Valve’s online store allows users to sell and buy skins from your inventory. It is the most reliable method, as you’ll always have a safety cushion in the form of Steam’s seller and the buyer protection.
  2. Third-party trading platforms. You can sell skins on third-party sites and forums. As we’ve previously discussed, much depends on the quality of the site and its conditions for conducting transactions.
  3. Find a buyer in-game. This method is the most labor-intensive as you’ll need to negotiate with lots of players and there’s no guarantee you won’t run into a scam. On the bright side, you won’t have to pay a commission for the service.

As a final piece of advice, we’d like to remind you that skin prices in Counter-Strike change constantly as new updates are released. So, it’s a good idea to do some market research and evaluate the current competition before pricing your skin. Be prepared that some agent skins may cost less than you think, while others may command a price above their market value.
