Top 10 Best CSGO Weapon Skins to Get in 2019
Top 10 Best CSGO Weapon Skins to Get in 2019
Who doesn’t like having an amazing gun skin to show off? We count down the top 10 best csgo skins that you can get in 2019!
There’s just something so, let’s say prestigious in owning a weapon skin in CSGO. Sure, it doesn’t influence gameplay or give you an unfair advantage, but it’s still special. This is true for all games that have cosmetics. Pull out your StatTrak AWP and give out headshots like it was nothing!
So, let’s not waste time any more on this intro and get to the point! Here are the top 10 best csgo skins that you can get in 2019 (but keep in mind that some are extremely expensive!).
Note: The list is in no particular order.
Number 10 – AK-47 Fire Serpent
The Fire Serpent CSGO skin is one of the less expensive ones on this list but it has risen in value over the years. It was released way back in 2013 and getting a factory new version without StatTrak would set you back 620 euros! The battle-scared version costs a ‘meager’ 120 euros. If you want the StatTrak version, well, be prepared to dish out more than 400 euros for any version (with the minimal wear costing a huge 1,200 euros).
The AK-47 Fire Serpent CSGO skin featuers a green snake-like creature and some blue clouds around it. The serpent mainly stays whole even when degradation happens. A pretty cool gun that belongs in our top 10 best csgo skins list!
Number 9 – M4A4 Howl
If you love canines of any sort, you’ll absolutely love the Howl skin. It comes with a beautiful color scheme of black and red; an aggressive choice. This isn’t surprising considering there’s a damn wolf on it! The skin was created back in 2014 but has went through a redesign. Unfortunately, the original skin was changed due to art theft. However, it arguably looks better now (cleaner design and better integration with the gun).
The skin is available only through the Steam Market or by trading with another player. This has caused its price to skyrocket and getting a field-tested version will set you back 740 euros. It’s worth mentioning that the Howl skin is one of the more expensive ones, so it’s no wonder the price is so high. Beautiful!
Number 8 – AWP Dragon Lore
Ahh the Dragon Lore AWP. One of the most popular CSGO skins that the community has known of, the Dragon Lore AWP definitely deserves a place on the top 10 best CSGO skins! Getting a factory new Dragon Lore is only possible through BitSkins and costs 1,400 euros. Oof. That’s expensive. You could get a battle-scarred version for 650 euros but this skin is by no means cheap. Reasonably so; the design is wonderful, clean, and incredibly iconic. A dragon spewing fire in front of him but not too much. Everything is so perfectly balanced, as all things should be (thanks Thanos).
Number 7 – M9 Bayonet Crimson Web
If owning colorful and kinda scary knives is your forte, you’ll love the Crimson Web skin for the M9 Bayonet. There’s one negative to it though – you can’t get it factory new (well, you can but only through BitSkins and it costs a massive 4,200 euros). The price difference from battle-scarred to field-tested is almost non-existent (146, 151, 183 euros respectively) so if you want a slightly better looking one – save up an extra couple of euros.
The finish style on this skin is hydrographic and it’s been around for 5 years (first released in August 2013). There are also StatTrak version but they’re a hundred euros more expensive than their regular counterparts.
Number 6 – Five-SeveN Hyper Beast
The Five-SeveN skin is insanely colorful. Hyper Beast looks more like graffiti than anything else but this by no means makes it bad! On the contrary, the style chosen is perfect for this gun. On top of that, this is one of the cheapest skins on our top 10 best CSGO skins you can get in 2019! The factory new version costs just over 50 euros with the most expensive version being the factory new StatTrak (which costs around 230 eur). And, if you don’t want to pay as much, the field-tested version gives you the best value (only 3 euros more expensive than the battle-scared one).
The Hyper Beast custom paint job is a great starting CSGO skin if collecting cosmetics in this game is something you’re interested in.
Number 5 – Karambit Case Hardened
Who doesn’t like a gorgeous Karambit skin, right? Karambit’s are some of the most sought for knives in CSGO. Let alone their skins.
In the case of the case hardened (pun intended) Karambit CSGO skin, the creator went for an interesting style. Still, it might be a tad expensive for a knife but hey – It’s a damn Karambit skin that looks awesome!
A factory new option is the most expensive at around 650 euros. For best value, as with the Hyper Beast, go for the field-tested version. 230 euros (you can even find it for cheaper) for a Karambit that’s been case-hardened through the use of wood charcoal at some high temperatures (that’s the description for it at least).
Number 4 – AK-47 The Empress
The Empress is an interesting skin. Its design is not really clear when you first look at it, but on second viewing – it’s kind of mesmerizing. The Empress is a relatively new skin having been released in September 2017. Nonetheless, it has already gained recognition and has made its way to our top 10 best csgo skins list! The factory new quality is just beautiful and I think you’d do this skin an injustice by getting anything less than that. Kidding of course, The Empress is the empress no matter which skin quality you choose.
The prices are okay as well, with StatTrak options open too. StatTrak version go from 80 euros (battle-scared) to 360 euros for factory new. Keep in mind, however, that the factory new quality is almost double the price of the minimal wear one.
Number 3 – AWP Medusa
The Gorgon is there to stop your future from happening. Her gaze is stonecold (heh) and the AWP skin embodies that pretty well. A dark-themed CSGO skin with a medusa head at the back of the gun. Her scaly friends/hair expand towards the front. A spooky skin!
It’s not cheap either; 520 euros for a battle-scarred version and around 1,200 euros for the factory new quality. The skin has been released in 2015 and is part of the Gods and Monsters Collection. Valve themselves released this skin so they probably know what they’re doing.
Number 2 – P90 Emerald Dragon
The final 2 of our top 10 best CSGO skins list are cosmetic items that aren’t expensive. Cheap and gorgeous-looking. What more could you want?
Back on topic! So, the Emerald Dragon. It’s not always you find a gun you personally like but gee, do I love this one. There’s just something about the design itself which makes it fit really well. The gun is kinda spherical and wild lines are everywhere and so is the skin. You’ll be able to get a battle-scarred quality version for just around 20 eur and a factory new will cost you around 90. However, the minimal wear version costs less than 30 euros so that is the best value you can get.
There are also StatTrak options but they aren’t too cheap.
This skin is part of the Operation Bravo Case and The Bravo Collection too.
Number 1 – AK-47 Case Hardened
The final skin from our top 10 best CSGO skins list we’re going to talk about is the case hardened AK-47. Mind you, this skin doesn’t have an outrageous design or anything of the sort. It’s quite simple, frankly. Just a slight recolor that gives it a nice colorful shine. It’s pretty cheap as well – going for around 20 euros for a battle-scarred quality skin, all the way to 60-odd something euros for a factory new skin.
The StatTrak also exists but is marginally more expensive. Overall, this skin is cool if you want your gun hardened (and fancy!).
