The Best Butterfly Knife Skins In CS2
Unlike many of the knives in CS2, the Butterfly Knife takes a very different approach to design. Instead of going towards a more aggressive, simple, and vicious look, the Butterfly Knife is elegant, classy, and sophisticated. These qualities have made it one of the most popular weapons in the game, and this popularity has even carried over in real life!
List of the best Butterfly Knife skins
If you’re a fan of the Butterfly Knife, then you’ll be excited to know that we’ve made a list of the best Butterfly Knife skins in CS2. To clear things up, these are meant to cover a wide variety of tastes, while not every skin on this list will exactly be your cup of tea, you’re definitely going to see at least a few that are. So, without further ado, let’s get into the list.
1. ★ Butterfly Knife | Fade (Minimal Wear)
For the first skin on this list, we have the ever-popular Fade Butterfly Knife. With its unique-looking oil spill coloration that shifts and changes during gameplay, the knife looks especially great with all the great animations on the Butterfly Knife. It’s an incredibly popular skin, and the reason for this success is plain to see from even a glance at the weapon.
2. ★ Butterfly Knife | Gamma Doppler (Minimal Wear)
Next up, here’s the Gamma Doppler Bowie Knife, featuring a bright emerald blade that shines in a great way. The various green hues on the weapon that shift with the light are beautiful, accentuated once again by the weapon’s brilliant animations that really show off the stunning look to full effect. Subtle green on the black handle also elevates the design, producing an incredible skin.
3. ★ Butterfly Knife | Marble Fade (Minimal Wear)
Marble Fade skins are always ridiculously popular within the CS2 community, and this absolutely includes the Marble Fade Butterfly Knife. The signature Marble Fade has hues of red, blue, and yellow that organically shift as you play the game shimmer with every flourish of the Butterfly Knife. It’s especially prominent here, and it’s stunning to behold.
4. ★ Butterfly Knife | Lore (Field-Tested)
The Lore skins never disappoint, with their incredibly pretty and ornate-looking weapons, and of course, the Lore Butterfly Knife is especially emblematic of this. The Lore skin’s signature gold trims and intricate design pair up very well with the Butterfly Knife’s sophisticated look. The metallic green handle is also an excellent look, providing contrast to the bright weapon.
5. ★ Butterfly Knife | Slaughter (Minimal Wear)
The Slaughter Butterfly Knife continues the Slaughter skin line’s stylish look, but it adds a healthy dose of viciousness to the more sophisticated Butterfly Knife. The various shades of metallic red give the weapon an almost bloodied look thanks to the weapon’s smaller blade. We also see the tried and true combination of black and red between the blade and grip, and they work very well together.
6. ★ Butterfly Knife | Tiger Tooth (Minimal Wear)
The Tiger Tooth Butterfly Knife emulates the look of a tiger, though the effect is a lot more subtle when it comes to the Butterfly Knife. The bright orange blade is actually quite understated and simple, and the black grip fits in perfectly with it. The skin takes the simple idea and handles it tastefully, making for a skin that is surprisingly appealing.
7. ★ Butterfly Knife | Doppler (Minimal Wear)
Now, we have the Doppler Butterfly Knife, featuring the ever-popular color pairing of black and red. Mixing the red and black hues gives the blade an almost cosmic look, producing an impressively clean look. A tasteful black and red handle also gives the weapon a nice splash of solid color, which makes the blade stand out even more.
8. ★ Butterfly Knife | Damascus Steel (Field-Tested)
Featuring some insane-looking coloring work on its blade, the Damascus Steel Butterfly Knife is a weapon that makes a strong impression through its visual design. The messy ripples of white and gray all over the knife make it look exquisite and unique. The bright look of the blade clashes with the simple black grip, completing the look to great effect.
9. ★ Butterfly Knife | Stained (Minimal Wear)
Want a weapon that’s more simple and militaristic while still retaining some style and flair? Then look no further than the Stained Butterfly Knife, adorned with simple grays, silvers, and blacks all over. It almost makes for a military camouflage-type look. As a skin, it’s a great choice for people looking for something that isn’t too gaudy or bright.
10. ★ Butterfly Knife | Crimson Web (Minimal Wear)
The Crimson Web skin takes the ever-popular black and red motif and combines it with solid theming to make a Butterfly Knife that’s as unique as it is interesting. Spider web patterns adorn the weapon’s blade, and the weapon’s handle is also subtly themed, with dark red accents going around the edges of the grip. It looks fantastic, and we love to see it.
11. ★ Butterfly Knife | Autotronic (Minimal Wear)
The Autotronic Butterfly Knife is actually a bit different from the typical Autotronic skinned knives in that it has a different balance of colors. The blade section of the weapon features a lot more silver than red here compared to the other Autotronic skins, but it still works great for the Butterfly Knife. Still a great weapon skin, especially with the dual-tone handle on the weapon.
12. ★ Butterfly Knife | Case Hardened (Minimal Wear)
Taking multiple different off discolorations and applying it to a weapon wouldn’t usually make for a great skin, but the Case Hardened Butterfly Knife makes a strong case for it. It has an incredibly unique look, especially with the blade’s almost rusted, aged features. It also changes based on how it reflects the light, and it makes the design fascinating to look at, especially with the Butterfly Knife’s animations.
The Butterfly Knife is special and different from so many other knives in CS2, and its fanbase is a testament to that. It’s a memorable weapon thanks to its animations alone, and nothing highlights that more than a good skin. We hope some of the skins we listed today appeal to you, and even if they don’t, we guarantee you’ll find one you’ll like eventually.
