Following the closure of Counter-Strike Global Offensive, CS2 adopted a new reward drop system known as Weekly Care Packages, one of the most significant changes that occurred when CS:GO transformed into CS2. A weekly care package lets you choose two reward items from four options that you find most valuable. However, the timing of these care packages is unclear to many CS2 players, including myself at first. Here's everything you need to know about when weekly care packages drop in CS2.

What is the Weekly Care Package reset time in CS2?

The reset time for weekly care packages in Counter-Strike 2 is every Tuesday at 6pm PT / 8pm CT / 9pm ET. At this point, players will be able to earn new rewards and XP bonuses until a weekly reset occurs.

However, this doesn't mean that weekly care packages will automatically drop every Tuesday. To earn the care package, players need to level up their CS2 account by gaining XP on official servers. Once a player earns their first XP rank of the week, they'll receive their care package rewards.

To use a CS2 Care Package, head to the store on the Home tab and click the Care Package icon. After obtaining the rewards, they can either sell them on the Steam marketplace or use them in their matches.

How to get XP in CS2

Earning XP is relatively essential to level up in Counter-Strike 2. However, you will only earn XP when you have Prime Status, which typically costs $14.99 USD. Here are some of the best ways I've found to gain XP in the game:

  • Playing different game modes like Competitive, Casual, and Deathmatches. This is the easiest way to earn a lot of XP quickly in Counter-Strike 2.
  • Completing the weekly missions also rewards you with XP.
  • When you finish a round, you can get a bonus from a weekly XP pool of 5,000 XP. The bonus is calculated based on the XP you earned in the round. For the first 3,500 XP of the pool, you get 3x your XP as a bonus. For the remaining 1,500 XP of the pool, you get 1x your XP as a bonus.
