AK-47 Case Hardened: Blue Gem Seed Patterns

3 min read

The AK is an iconic weapon in Counter-Strike largely due to its one-tapping potential from any range. It is also the go-to rifle for anyone playing from the Terrorist side. Given its widespread popularity, CS developers have released many beautiful and iconic skins for the AK-47. 

While there are a number of skins for the AK, some are desired by the players and stand out above the rest. The Case Hardened skins are some of the most demanded AK-47 skins that outclass other skins in the marketplace through their rarity and beautiful aesthetic. 

We have compiled a list of all rare AK-47 Case Hardened patterns for your knowledge. 

The Rarest AK-47 Case Hardened Pattern

Among all the Case Hardened AK Blue Gem Patterns, The Scar is the most expensive and rare AK skin in the marketplace. It is an AK-47 skin with pattern #661 and got its name due to a small yellow stripe on the side. 

It is an extremely rare CS:GO skin and fetches a great price on the marketplace. Overall, there are only 121 rare skins in Counter-Strike and only nine of them are Factory New. 

Tier 1 AK-47 Case Hardened Blue Gem Patterns

While the #661 AK-47 Case Hardened Blue Gem pattern is the rarest, there are other Tier 1 rare Case Hardened skins based on the amount of blue gem on the weapon finish. However, the blue finish is only taken into account when it is specifically located on the central part of the gun’s case and mag. The blue gem on the barrel’s end and the gun’s butt do not affect its tier.

Tier- 2 AK-47 Case Hardened Blue Gem Patterns

The Tier-2 AK-47 Case Hardened includes skins with gold and spots of blue and purple colour. These skins are fairly cheaper than Tier-1 or The Scar. 

Tier-2 AK Case Hardened Blue Gem Patterns: 4, 13, 28, 32, 65, 74, 82, 92, 103, 122, 139, 147, 172, 189, 205, 228, 256, 323, 341, 426, 430, 442, 463, 479, 512, 525, 526, 532, 541, 571, 578, 605, 617, 627, 695, 698, 708, 713, 750, 752, 791, 828, 844, 868, 887, 888, 892, 903, 905, 922, 950, 969, 978, 996

Tier-3 AK-47 Case Hardened Blue Gem Patterns

The Tier-3 AKs have clear visible blue areas. However, it is difficult to tell whether a skin is Tier-2 or Tier-3 just by looking at it. The easiest and fastest way to determine the tier would be by the gun’s pattern number. These skins are very cheap compared to Tier-1 or Tier-2 skins. 

Tier-3 AK Case Hardened Blue Gem Patterns: 34, 81, 112, 278, 310, 363, 381, 413, 428, 429, 450, 519, 557, 586, 610, 647, 685, 689, 690, 733, 754, 770, 819, 823, 856, 862, 872, 878, 935, 1000.

Why is the AK-47 Case Hardened So Popular?

The AK-47 Case Hardened Blue Gem Skin is one of the most demanded and rarest skins in the Counter-Strike franchise. It was one of the earliest skins to be introduced to the FPS title and made its way to the game as a part of the CS Weapon Case in August 2013. The popularity of Case Hardened AKs can be largely attributed to the Blue Gem variant of the skin.

The Blue Gem Case Hardened AK features a unique blue colour on the weapon’s receiver, giving an aesthetic look that sets it apart from other Case Hardened skins. Over the years, Blue Gem has become a symbol of wealth in the CS community. It is so valuable because the odds of obtaining a Blue Gem through case openings are incredibly low.
