What are the CS:GO weapon drop rates? Does the drop chance on an achievement idle server go down if you're idling?

Supposedly, the system has changed and idling won't get you items, something I have observed to seem true in the game. I don't think you will ever get the formula, it is a secret and information won't leak because weapons can be monetized.

Edit : I forgot to mention it but the drop rates go down over time, if you have like X % chance to drop an item per game, it will decay and reset to X % at the end of the week. This ensures people don't spend too much time farming weapons, or find new ways to idle, probably.


Not going to lie, I was idling last week and still got item drops so it does still give you items, just not as often.

    It would be good if you could back your answer up with some evidence.
