CSGO skins are one of the most important features of the game. There exists an entire economy of skins, with some of them worth a lot of money. A rare weapon skin can command a high price, and there’s a lot of them in the game.
Skins are important, and Valve also included various methods to modify the skins. Besides stickers, players also have a way to give every weapon skin they own a unique name. Here’s all you need to know about the CSGO name tag.
What Are Name Tags?
Name tags are one of the customization options that player have for the weapon skins in their inventory. When you use a name tag on any weapon skin, the name you’ve chosen will be displayed under the name of the gun on the kill cam, as well as in the inventory when someone is browsing.
Name tags can be applied to any weapon skin in your inventory to give it a unique name. Besides the skins that you have in the inventory, you can use a name tag on any of the default weapons in the game. This means that you can give a unique name to any gun in the game, whether it’s a new skin that you own or the default weapon. You can change the weapon name of any gun, as well as other items, such as the C4 or default knife. If the weapon already has a name tag, it will be automatically removed and replaced with a new one. Also, if you trade the item with a changed name, the name tag stays on the gun.
Name tags aren’t only visible on the kill cam or in your inventory, though. As a matter of fact, when you apply a name tag to any of your weapons, it will also be visible in-game in a form of a custom-engraved nameplate. The nameplate will be applied to the weapon and viewable by anyone who holds it, though every gun has the nameplate in a different spot. Still, it’s always visible by anyone who holds it, and can easily be read when inspecting the gun.
How To Get The Name Tag?
Name tags are easily available in the in-game store, meaning that they are always in high availability. You can always purchase an individual name tag for $1.99. If for some reason you don’t want to use the store, you can always get the name tag from the Steam marketplace.
When you purchase a name tag, it will be automatically added to your inventory, and you can use it to rename one weapon skin that is in your inventory. To rename a weapon, all you have to do is go into your inventory in-game, select the name tag, right-click it and select use. Then, you simply have to find the weapon you want to apply the name tag to and type in your desired name.
Every name tag has a 20 characters limit, but it allows spaces and all special signs., such as questions or exclamation marks. The name that you create, however, cannot start with a space.
