The Best Cheap AK-47 Skins In CS2
The AK-47 is a weapon that needs no introduction, it’s one of the most iconic weapons in FPS history. In CS2, it’s a meta-defining weapon, one that every player needs to master in order to compete. So, what then are the best AK-47 skins you can buy in the game on a budget?
List of the best cheap AK-47 skins
We’ve compiled a list of what we feel are some of the best cheap AK-47 skins currently out right now. Keep in mind that the list is subjective, though we feel we’ve got some excellent picks on it that should cover a wide range of tastes! Read on, and hopefully you’ll have found a new favourite by the end of this list.
1. AK-47 | Slate (Minimal Wear)
The first skin on our list doesn’t stray too far from the general aesthetic of a weapon, but with a touch of professionalism and sleekness added to the mix. Fans of the Slate skin swear by it, citing its incredibly clean design as it’s biggest selling point. A great choice for a player of any level.
2. AK-47 | Bloodsport (Minimal Wear)
Contrasting our first pick, the AK-47 Bloodsport is a far more vibrant and loud affair. Featuring a primarily black and red colour scheme highlighted by white accents, the Bloodsport skin still manages to retain some level of sleekness despite its busy design. For players who want to stand-out, you can’t go wrong with this skin.
3. AK-47 | Asiimov (Minimal Wear)
The Asiimov skin takes a more futuristic, modern and sporty aesthetic, looking like something straight out of the Portal universe. White, black and orange make for a clean look, paired with the minimal wear condition giving the skin just the right amount of grit. Wonderfully minimalist!
4. AK-47 | The Empress (Field-Tested)
Like its name implies, the Empress is a skin for players who don’t just want to stand-out, but want to show-off just how intricate their weapon is. Featuring a bombastic design overflowing with regalia and fine details, it’s one of the most impressive designs around, and it’s not even that expensive!
5. AK-47 | Leet Museo (Field-Tested)
Are you a big fan of modern art and cubism? If you are, then the Leet Museo skin is right up your alley. While custom print skins are pretty common in CS2, the AK-47 Leet Museo takes things to a whole new level. Featuring art that could’ve come straight out of a museum, it ensures that no matter what, you’ll definitely be making an impression on other players.
6. AK-47 | Phantom Disruptor (Minimal Wear)
Alright, while all these skins have been nice to look at, some of you may be asking “where are the cool skins?” Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered with the Phantom Disruptor skin. Featuring monstrous artwork that would be at home in Cthulhian mythos and a pleasant colour scheme, the Phantom Disruptor exudes cool.
7. AK-47 | Neon Revolution (Minimal Wear)
This list has had a surprising lack of neon skins, but we’ve remedied that with the Neon Revolution skin. Strong anarchistic themes prevail throughout the design, with bright contrasting neon colours making for a memorable design that sticks out on any battlefield.
8. AK-47 | Legion of Anubis (Minimal Wear)
Now, we’re getting into some truly majestic territory. The Legion of Anubis AK-47 is one of the most beautiful skins available, from the finely crafted artwork and decals, all the way to its intricate texture work, it’s a work of art. The Egyptian themes on top of all that is simply adding to the perfection on display. This is a weapon that should be on every CS2 player’s wishlist.
9. AK-47 | Redline (Field-Tested)
The AK-47 Redline brings things back to more realistic territory, though it’s still a striking design. It embodies the design philosophy of less being more, with a mostly black undercoat and simple textures. The main selling point are its blood red highlights, accenting the design and giving it a subtle coolness. Good for players who want a bit of flair, but not annoy their teammates with gaudy colours.
10. AK-47 | Frontside Misty (Minimal Wear)
Colder aesthetics are always a hit with players, and the Frontside Misty skin is one of the most pleasant looking. White markings and bright neon blue highlights over a black undercoat makes for a skin that’s surprisingly easy on the eyes, while still standing out in a good way.
11. AK-47 | Neon Rider (Field-Tested)
Here’s the Neon Rider skin, taking the cyberpunk aesthetic that’s become popular as of late, and cranking it up to 11. As the name implies, it’s got a smattering of neon colours all around, but they’re tastefully used to enhance the design on the gun. Fun use of textures and prints also make it stand out against the crowd of simple neon designs.
12. AK-47 | Elite Build (Minimal Wear)
Maybe you aren’t a fan of these fantastical themes, and prefer something more realistic. Here we’ve got the Elite Build skin, which does away with the brightly coloured elements on other skins, instead taking a more militaristic approach to its design. With tasteful amounts of orange, the skin absolutely sells on what it’s trying to achieve to great effect.
13. AK-47 | Point Disarray (Minimal Wear)
Sometimes, going with a louder design is just the way to go. The Point Disarray skin is a chaotic combination of colours and shapes that meshes together well enough to form a cohesive design, while still retaining a messy aesthetic. It’s good for those of you who like your weapons on the crazier side.
14. AK-47 | Rat Rod (Minimal Wear)
The Rat Rod skin turns your clean AK-47 into a junkyard scrap weapon slapped together from various parts, and it makes for an incredibly compelling design. Despite how ramshackle it looks, plenty of care has been put into getting the markings and details just right, and the result is one of the most unique looking guns you’ll see in any CS2 match.
And with that, we’ve reached the end of the list. It’s truly fascinating how many skins there are, and how they cater so well to different players and tastes. We hope this list has helped you find a new skin for your AK-47, and always remember that there are tons of skins, so feel free to keep looking for more!
