The skin is pretty cheap compared to the other sniper skins on the list. If you want the skin in Factory New condition then you would probably get it off the market for $7 to $10. There is a StatTrak version available for the weapon. It is priced around $20 which is a great deal for such a skin.
SSG 08 | BloodshotFor the SSG 08, the Bloodshot is the best weapon skin to equip because of its amazing style design. It has an almost creepy look to it which has the base colors of gray and green along with some hinted orange patches. The main aspect of the weapon is the one-eyed monster with its teeth and tongue out. It has an incredible color scheme to it along with the red flames in the muzzle and top part of the weapon.
The weapon skin was originally added to the game through the Shattered Web Case which has had many top-selling skins inside of it. Few are even mentioned in this guide itself. The skin was released on the 18th of November,2019, and was bought the most in the entire collection. The skin was part of the Shattered Web collection and due to the high popularity, people started to buy off the Factory New conditioned skins.
You cannot find the Factory New version at any skin-selling market but just the Minimal Wear for a relatively cheap price like $30. When you talk about the StatTrak version, it is rather really expensive due to its scarcity of it. Even at the high end of places, you would be able to get the skin for about $270. The price has been increasing ever since.
Heavy Shotgun Skins
In closed-range combats, there is nothing that can beat the heavy shotguns in the game. They are incredibly fun to lay with and even more when you have incredible skin-equipped. The developers and game designers of CSGO have been kind enough to release some cool skins for the shotguns. You will get to know the best skin for each individual shotgun.
MAG-7 | Cinquedea
The Cinquedea came straight from the Medival era and it shows as you look at the skin with its incredibly old entails. Even the wooden panel has been designed to give an old look. The main frame and base of the gun have a sort of red, blue, and white enamel design. The enamel plates are also an ode to the 1800s. There is a gold and red pattern at the handle and lower rim of the gun. The name of the gun is also engraved on the handle with gold.
The skin was highly exclusive when it first came out and has been pretty popular among players since then. For the most part, the gun was originally a part of the fancy Royals Collection which featured many loved skins. The Prince skin for AWP was also part of the collection and has been the top choice for collectors. If you talk about the Cinquedea it is rather cheaper when compared to The Prince.
Fortunately, the skin is still available in Factory New condition at various markets. Most sellers are selling it for $500 to $660 max. There is no StatTrak version available for the weapon skin.
Nova | Antique
In CSGO, Nova is a pretty unique and old-fashioned gun when it comes to its schematics of it. It is a Classic shotgun and that is why having the Antique skin for it is the best way to do it. Antique skin is a popular weapon skin in CSGO due to its simplicity. It has a wooden texture drawn on the stock and hand support of the weapon which is how shotguns looked in the old days. To fancy it up a bit, there is a gold pattern drawn on the center of the weapon.
It is rusted up a bit to give the idea of it being aged. The skin was originally released on 20th February 2014. You would have to get the Operation Phoenix weapon Case in order to get the Antique Skin. The skin was part of the Phoenix Collection alongside any other skins but the Antique was the most sold. That is because it is so stunning and isn’t really that expensive.
In order to get the skin in Factory New condition you can visit the suggested market Listings to buy it. The asking price for it will be between $8 to $10. There is a StatTrak version available for the weapon. It will cost you about $25 to have it.
Sawed-Off | ApocalyptoMost people usually do not go for the Sawed-Off shotgun but when it’s time for some not-so-serious action you pull it out. The best weapon skin for the Sawed-Off in CSGO is the Apocalyptic. The skin is very complex skin with a color palette of purple and teal which look beautiful together. There is a sort of hand which is teal in color reaching for a planetary bomb in space. But the rest of the skin is just the space filled with stars and rockets.
It is an incredibly underrated and magnificent skin for the Sawed-Off. The Apocalyptic was officially released on the 31st of March, 2020. You would get it through the Prisma 2 Case which has a lot of familiar skins like the Player Two for the M4A1-S. It was part of the Prisma 2 collection and looked incredibly great compared to the other skins.
As amazing as the skin looks it even gets better since the price for it is really cheap. If you want the Factory New version you would just have to pay $2 in order to buy it. Even the StatTrak version is cheap for the weapon skin. It is worth about $5.
XM1014 | Incinegator
Now for the XM1014, there is a skin that best describes its aggressive playstyle and gives justice to it. That weapon skin is of course the Incinegator which is a great skin to have equipped when you are running the XM1014. The name suggests how the skin looks exactly. It has an Alligator drawn onto the weapon with dark green skin and sharp teeth. It is sort of breathing fire like a dragon and the fire extends to the end of the barrel.
Even you can agree how amazing and cool skin it is and it definitely deserves to be called the best weapon skin for the XM1014 in CSGO. It was originally released on the 13th of March, 2019. The skin was retrieved from the Prisma Case and it was eventually the most picked skin for the XM1014. It gave the players a reason to play with XM1014 and even the gun got the proper recognition. The Incinegator was part of the Prisma Collection.
But It has a pretty average price for a weapon skin of this standard. You certainly won’t be able to make much money off of it if you are a reseller. Therefore, for the basic Factory New condition of the skin, you would have to pay about $15 to buy it. The StatTrak version isn’t that expensive either. It costs about $32 to $40.
Heavy Machine Gun Skins
Most of the beginners to the game tend to start with Heavy Machine guns but more of the professional players do not use them. In the community, you would sort of find it a little kiddy if you play with them. It is because they are a bit OP and require little to no skill to master. Still, most of the players collect the skins for both the heavy weapons and even the game has released some really good skins for the weapons.
M249 | Downtown
The design of the skin is inspired straight by the streets of LA or Downtown LA to be exact. The city is full of Grafitti artists pouring their hearts and soul into projecting their imaginations onto walls. The Primary base colors for the skin are blue and light outlines of purple. The Graffiti is just multidirectional arrows that are so cool to look at you could just wish you had the gun to yourself. But totally not encouraging you to do that!
The skin was first released through the Recoil Case which as we mentioned before was a pretty great case for famous skins. It was originally released on the 1st of July, 2022 which makes it a rather newly made skin. That helps you get the skin in Factory New condition easily. Downtown was part of the Recoil Collection.
Most of the “best” weapon skins you could find on the Market Listings are incredibly cheap. If you are a little broke it’s okay you can still manage to get the skin from your mom’s credit card without making her that angry. You can get the weapon skin in Factory New Condition for about $10.
Negev | Drop Me
Now the best skin you could get for the Negev weapon is the Drop Me skin. Negev is a pretty underused weapon in CSGO. It has low damage so people just do not use it. Many YouTubers just use it to do challenges in their videos. But the Drop Me skin makes the weapon visually stunning you just automatically want to run it. The primary color of the skin is a rusty brown and it has many symbols just drawn onto the skin.
There is a STOP sign logo on the handgrip area with black-inked writing saying DR. There is also a washed-off green-painted snake drawn onto the center part of the skin. Drop Skin was retrieved from the Recoil Case along with many other skins popular among players that have been mentioned above. The case was launched into CSGO on the 1st of July, 2022. The Drop Me skin was part of the Recoil Collection just like the XM1014’s skin Incinegator.
Drop Me can be easily found on many other weapon skins selling authentic CSGO websites. The prices are extremely low so you can easily buy the skin in Factory new condition. It will cost you around 1 dollar for it. As I said, extremely low. For the StatTrak version, you just have to pay $2.
In CSGO there are plenty of knives that are extremely rare and can be fun to play around with. The disrespect that a melee attack kill gives is profound in the game of CSGO. There have been many skins put out into the game that is amazing to look at. The weapon skins are extremely popular in the CSGO gaming community and they tend to find the best one. Although some of the skins are expensive you have to figure out a way to make them a good investment.
Nomad Knife | Crimson Web
The newest installment of weapon skin in the game is the Crimson Web skin for the Nomad Knife. There have been speculations that the skin might jump to a much higher price in 2023 due to scarcity. Well apart from the great investment opportunity, the skin has its own flare. It is without a doubt the best-looking weapon skin for the Nomad knife in CSGO. Looks wise you can see why it is called the Crimson Web. The Crimson Red color gives the weapon a distinct look along with the cool cobweb designs on the skin.
It was first originally released on the 18th of November, 2019 but recently it has been selling across multiple platforms for high prices. In 2022, the sales for the skin have gone up 200% and that is why its price has also gone up. You would have originally retrieved the skin from the Shattered Web Case or the Fracture Case which was also released around the same time. Although the prices differ from one another greatly.
As said before the prices have gone up greatly for the skin so it will be a little heavy on your wallet. For the Factory New conditioned weapon, you would have to spend about $1200 to $1300. Yes, that is an insane price for skin but is a good investment. There is a StatTrak version for the skin which is priced at around $15000. If you have that kind of worry then who are we to judge you?
Paracord Knife | Blue Steel
The thing in most of these knife skins is that they are the very popular best weapon skin among players in CSGO. This is why some skins have those unique little aspects to them that make them special. With this thing in mind, we look at the Paracord Knife. The knife is essentially a hand blade with different hues of color, including green, purple, and blue. The hues are painted onto the steel-based alloy blade that is not that shiny in perspective and has a grubby look to it. The handle has no color or design and is a simple roped handle.
The skin is rather cheap when compared to the Crimson Web skin for the Nomad Knife. But it is still expensive for a weapon skin in CSGO and is the best investment you could make. It was originally released on the 18th of November 2019. The case that the skin was retrieved from was the same as the Crimson Web which is the Shattered Case. Many popular skins came about from the casing.
As said before, the skin is expensive but can be a great investment since knife skins have not been released for some time. meaning that there is a scarcity of knife skins in the market. Therefore, you should buy their skin if you are looking to collect. For the Factory’s New condition of the skin, you would have to pay about $300. There is a StatTrak version of the skin as well which is about $50 more than the Factory New condition. That will be about $350.
Butterfly Knife | Lore
Now for the famous butterfly knife, we have the Lore skin, which is majestic to look at, especially for such a famous weapon. The design is definitely taken directly from the AWP Dragon Lore skin. The skin is a gold-painted knife with a sort of Norse mythological type of vibe to it. That is because the skin looks like it was taken from the early days. The edge is engraved with Norse symbols and has stones embedded onto the handle as well.
As for the case, you would find the Lore skin originally from the Operation Riptide case. It was introduced into the game on the 22nd of September 2021. It makes a rather new skin for the collectors. You could also get the case from the Dreams and Nightmare case.
Now, this skin is also pretty expensive, but at this point which knife skin isn’t? for the Factory New conditioned model of the knife, you would have to pay $9000. There is also a StatTrak version which can be bought for $20000 as of 2023.
