The two most expensive items in CS:GO are knives and gloves; getting them may require a lot of money for a purchase or a lot of time and effort trading. No wonder many players seek ways to create the most impressive combo of those two items. Seemingly challenging, this task is actually much easier than it may look.
Same skin on knife and gloves
The easiest way to make a great combo is to use the same pattern on both items. For example, a combination of Bayonet | Case Hardened and Hydra Gloves | Case Hardened would look really cool thanks to the seamless transition from one item’s skin to the other.
The same-skin combo is available, inter alia, with these patterns:
A few others.
Skins with similar features
This method is much like the previous one, but still a bit different: one may combine two different finishes that are similar in terms of some of the main features. For example, the Falchion Knife | Forest DDPAT and Hand Wraps | Arboreal both use green tone camo patterns that match nicely thanks to their similarity.
Using this approach, one can create a combo such as one of these :
Forest DDPAT knife and Driver Gloves | Convoy — both are in camo;
Ultraviolet knife and Sport Gloves | Pandora’s Box — a similar shade of violet;
Gamma Doppler knife and Hand Wraps | Cobalt Skulls — a combo in shades of blue.
The most complicated way is to combine two items that are completely different but make a good match when used together. For this one may consider overall appearance and theme of both skins. E.g. Falchion Knife | Rust Coat will go well with Hand Wraps | Leather because both finishes look “well worn”.
When selecting knives and gloves by theme, style or general appearance, one should rely mostly on one’s own preferences and taste. However, there are some combos that cs.money can recommend:
Sport Gloves | Amphibious and Bayonet | Urban Masked
Driver Gloves | Overtake and Flip Knife | Lore
Moto Gloves | Boom! and Gut Knife | Black Laminate.
