Counter-Strike weekly drops reset every Wednesday at 1 AM GMT
Below is a countdown for your local timezone
The weekly reset occured recently!
Each week you are eligible for a Weekly care package / drop, which gives the choice between:
After the weekly timer resets, level up your CS2 profile rank, you will automatically get a popup in game to claim your weekly case, skin or grafiti.
Here are two of the easiest ways I can thing to check if your weekly care package drop is still yet to come for the week :
In Game Shop
If you navigate to the in-game shop, it says if you still have a drop remaining.
If claimed for the week, it will show silhouettes of the items you were offered, and which ones were claimed
Otherwise, you will see 4 question marks alongside your XP bar
Screenshots of both examples are seen below
Steam Inventory History
If you dont want to launch CS2, You can navigate to your steam inventory history
You can use this page to check if you received a CS2 drop this week, check our countdown timer at the top of the page (subtract 1 week) to see if your last drop was within the delivery window
Note : if you do a lot of trading or Steam Market transactions, you might have to scroll for a bit to find your CS2 drops for the week
Originally countries that ban opening cases (Like Netherlands and Belgium) were unable to get them as Weekly care package drops
However this only lasted a few weeks, and now all players can receive cases from their weekly care package
No the ability to idle for in-game drops has been removed
On the 9th of June 2023, Valve changed the drop system to include cases in the rank up system.
This removed the ability to randomly find cases while being idle on servers

CSGO Market Forum discussion on Reddit
There used to be 2 drop systems, the case drop system, and the item drop system
You used to be able to get 1 case randomly during playtime 7 days after your previous case, this system worked independently from the item drops.
Item drops have not changed (once per weekly reset) using the same countdown timer you see above
you used to get either a Skin or Grafiti everytime you leveled up for the week.
This depends on your country, in most developed countries it is no longer worth grinding cases unless you are already playing enough CSGO to rank up multiple times a week
However prices of cases in CS2 continue to rise, so it may pay to revaluate the value of your time periodically.
Competitive CS2 matches (premier or competitive queue) give the most experience, but its based off the amount of rounds won, so if you dont win many rounds, you could waste time not ranking up over a significant loss.
The next best source of XP is casual deathmatch mode, the score multiplier combined with how many kills you can achieve from instant respawn free for all isnt matched by other gamemodes (yet)
Because everyone lives in different timezones
the weekly drop time will be different for each timezone
Our countdown will always be accurate for your timezone, however it might be interesting to see the local times that the CS2 weekly reset happens for outher timezones
