Silver

Silver is one of two stickers in this capsule that comes in a paper and a foil variety. It is likely to be one of the most popular stickers in the set as one of only two foil stickers and the meme potential such a sticker can bring.

Like all stickers in this capsule, there are secrets hidden if you scrape them. Two different secrets exist for this sticker depending on whether you have the regular or the shiny sticker. The paper version reveals the phrase 'Sorry about the aim' under a face while the foil revealing the words 'Straight into' above the silver band.

Gold Nova

This sticker representing Gold Nova is a single star with a trail, followed by two other stars among the wording. Unlike the Silver sticker, Gold Nova and all ranks up to Global have a holo version too. More stars in the trail are visible in the holo Gold Nova.

The secret for this sticker is that with scraping, the words and outlines are removed and the letters 'MVP' remain in the middle of the star to very literally represent the MVP stars awarded in-game.

Master Guardian

Master Guardian puts the iconic singular AK front and centre of the sticker, with a distinctive background pattern really highlighted in the holo version.

The secret scrape on this sticker rips the neat bow, changing the message from 'Master Guardian' to 'AK47 Master' while retaining the crown above the gun.

Master Guardian Elite

The Master Guardian Elite sticker bears the distinctive double AKs from the rank symbol on either side as well as the mask of a heavy Phoenix terrorist in the middle. The bullet hole between the eyes signifying the heavy's higher-than-average 200 armour over the 100 kevlar and a helmet provides.

Scraping a Master Guardian Elite sticker will reveal the SAS counter-terrorist with crossed M4A4s instead of the original terrorist and AK design.

Distinguished Master Guardian

Distinguished Master Guardian lives up to its name by being a non-complex yet aesthetically pleasing sticker. The full sticker is a red and white background and a silver star, becoming a more vibrant alternative in its holographic form. When scraped, the words disappear and the star with a simple circle around it remains.

Legendary Eagle

The Legendary Eagle has a shining eye in its plain paper form and a particularly bright star as a background in its holo version. The second star of LE is put into the 'A' in Legendary Eagle in order to not encroach upon the simple but impressive design. Both the paper and holographic put the focus onto the head of the eagle, reserving a full eagle display for the later LEM sticker.

This sticker leaves just the eagle's head when scraped, with a hint of the star around the beak, making for an elegant sticker for any weapon or skin.

Legendary Eagle Master

Legendary Eagle Master has an entire eagle over the simple head of the LE sticker, appearing relatively plain with the distinctive stars and the two halves of a laurel wreath in the background. These features are highlighted further in the holographic version which adds far more vibrancy.

A maximum scrape of the LEM sticker leaves the eagle in the centre and the stars either side of it, representing a derank. The holo version is also a combination of holo and foil effects, making it especially vibrant. As stated by the creator themselves, the sticker looks especially good on Desert Eagles thematically.

Supreme Master First Class

Supreme Master First Class is a mouthful to say and this sticker chooses to simply state 'supreme master' underneath the large SMFC wings and CT symbol.  Compared to the star present behind all ranks above DMG, the star is a prominent part of this sticker on the forehead of the face.

Scraping gives the face 'deal with it' sunglasses, changes the wording to 'supreme fragger' and trades the stars for skulls representing kills. The paper version is entirely white with the shades and 'fragger' becoming transparent.

Global Elite

Global Elite is the other sticker in this collection with a foil variant instead of holographic. The removal of colour in the foil sticker is made up for by making the details a rich shiny gold. The globe is also made to shimmer in the centre too.

Scraping the paper Global sticker reveals a chicken, P90s under the AKs and the word global crossed out with 'Nope' written above it. The foil variant is kept simple, reverting back to the logo for Global itself, displaying the prestige of the rank.
