Icarus Fell Guide
Learn more about the very unique Icarus Fell Pattern
The Icarus Fell is a very special skin. The skin was added to CS:GO with The Gods and Monsters Collection in 2015 and is only available for the M4A1-S. There is also a very small float range for the m4a1s Icarus fell and because of this, it is a very rare skin that is famous for traders in the CS:GO community.
Like some other skins from this collection, the Icarus Fell pattern denotes a story of ancient Greek mythology. Here you can read the legend of Icarus:
“Icarus’ father Daedalus, a very talented and remarkable Athenian craftsman, built the Labyrinth for King Minos of Crete near his palace at Knossos to imprison the Minotaur, a half-man, half-bull monster born of his wife and the Cretan bull. Minos imprisoned Daedalus himself in the labyrinth because he gave Minos’s daughter, Ariadne, a clew (or ball of string) in order to help Theseus, the enemy of Minos, to survive the Labyrinth and defeat the Minotaur.
Daedalus fashioned two pairs of wings out of wax and feathers for himself and his son. Daedalus tried his wings first, but before trying to escape the island, he warned his son not to fly too close to the sun, nor too close to the sea, but to follow his path of flight. Overcome by the giddiness that flying lent him, Icarus soared into the sky, but in the process he came too close to the sun, which due to the heat melted the wax. Icarus kept flapping his wings but soon realized that he had no feathers left and that he was only flapping his bare arms, and so Icarus fell into the sea in the area which today bears his name, the Icarian Sea near Icaria, an island southwest of Samos”
Based on this story the skin-pattern shows the sun, feathers and melted wax like this:
On this picture above you can see that there are many different patterns possible with the Icarus Fell skin. In fact, there are more than 20 different individual patterns that show more or less of the sun, feathers or melted wax. It is also possible to get a pattern that has much dark blue on it and only a little bit light blue on the silencer, what also can look very nice. That’s, why it is quite difficult to say that there is a #1 Pattern for the Icarus, fell because there are too many individual patterns. So it is very important when you want to trade or buy an Icarus Fell to inspect this particular pattern and then decide if you like this pattern or not.
