Weapon Skins in CS:GO are the best way to show off your in-game style outside of fancy flicks and crisp head shots. However, with many of the more flashy cosmetics in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive costing well over $100, and with the most expensive skins reaching up to $2,000, most players aren't willing to dish out cash just to add a little bit more flair to their weapons. However, there are some great options that aren't as costly so you can look a little bit more stylish as you frag out in-game.
Here are five best cheap skins to buy for your typical arsenal in Counter-Strike Global Offensive.
Best Weapon Skins CSGO: 5 Cheap Skins to Buy
1. AWP | Sun in Leo (Minimal Wear)
You can't go wrong with the AWP | Sun in Leo. The deep blue with purplish highlights add a classy and calming look to the devastating weapon. With randomized patterns that can give your Sun in Leo a unique identity, the skin also has some interesting details to give you something to inspect while you wait for your enemy to enter your crosshair.
2. SG 553 | Tiger Moth (Field-Tested)
With the SG 553's stock at an all-time high as professionals and amateur players take to social media hopelessly begging for Valve to nerf the weapon, you might be shopping around for a cheap skin to add a bit more flair as you pop heads with the Krieg. The SG 553 | Tiger Moth is a good option, as its Field-Tested wear doesn't look too worn and the orange lava-like pattern warns your enemy that you can catch fire at any moment and start fragging out.
3. Desert Eagle | Conspiracy (Minimal Wear)
The Desert Eagle | Conspiracy will make you look like a mob boss sent on an assassination mission if you wield this on the battlefield. With gold accents and a dark shaded body, this skin will make it look like you're in charge, even if it only costs a few bucks.
4. USP-S | Blueprint (Minimal Wear)
Costing up to $5, the USP-S | Blueprint is the most expensive skin recommended in this list. While some players may not be willing to dish out $5 for just a pistol skin, the Blueprint is a good candidate for any Counter-Terrorists that want to add some highlights to the typical washed-out CT blue motif.
5. Glock-18 | Grinder (Factory New)
The Glock-18 | Grinder is a great cheap option for a Glock, and like the Sun in Leo, comes with different patterns. With a base price hovering near $1, you have plenty of flexibility to pay more for a pattern that comes to your liking, whether you want more of the slick silver design or the alluring rainbow-specked darker pattern is up to you.
