The Best AWP Skins in CSGO

The Best AWP Skins in CSGO

Overview

Here are the top 10 AWP skins in CSGO!

The AWP is that Sniper that every great shooter needs. It’s been the centerpiece of so many highlight clips and clutch plays over the years. But if you want to clip some of your best shots, don’t be a fool – make sure you’ve got a great AWP skin equipped.

AWP Hyperbeast

  • Added: May 26th, 2015
  • Lowest price: $19.06

What the artists did particularly well with these skins as balance the light and dark elements. It’s incredibly menacing, but it’s not boring, and there’s just the right level of flashiness. Plus, less than $20 is basically a bargain when it comes to Counter Strike skins

AWP Wildfire

  • Added: October 18th, 2019
  • Lowest price: $30.56

Flames just aren’t cool to me personally. I would rather an actual pattern or a subject, but this had to make the list because it’s A) very popular and B) the very best of the literally hundreds of flame-based skins.

AWP Asiimov

  • Added: February 20th, 2014
  • Lowest price: $44.27

For some reason, this skin line just keeps coming back into mainstream popularity. Guys am I the crazy one? It’s two-tone orange and white, I don’t know who’s buying that for twice the price of Hyperbeast. But people are, Asimov is crazy popular, so it gets its place on the list

AWP Medusa

  • Added: May 26th, 2015
  • Lowest price: $1107.27
AWP Medusa

There’s something so professional about this skin for me. It’s not flashy or over the top, but it’s incredibly well done, and there’s still something menacing about it.

AWP Dragon Lore

  • Added: July 1st, 2014
  • Lowest price: $1584.93

This skin couples gold and red with a green scope, and somehow the color combination works. In every inch of the design you can see how detailed they’ve been, and the overall effect is in impressive. But this is one for those of you with crazy money to spend, not for me personally…

AWP Atheris

  • Added: March 13th, 2019
  • Lowest price: $3.06
AWP Atheris

This is so similar to Medusa, and do you know what, I’m going to say something a little bit controversial here, but I actually prefer this one instead. It’s only a tiny fraction of the price, but I think the sea monster here is just that bit more badass

AWP Lightning Strike

  • Added: August 14th, 2013
  • Lowest price: $153.11
AWP Lightning Strike

This is a very simple skin, but the designers made the right decision. When you see a lightning strike in the sky, it’s a single flash of white against a black sky. And that’s what the skin replicates. It’s also pretty appropriate for a sniper, those single powerful strikes, that seem to come from the heavens.

AWP Redline

  • Added: December 18th, 2013
  • Lowest price: $17.90

If you’ve been watching so far, though, and you just want a more sporting look, then perhaps the Redline is the AWP skin for you. The look is clean and professional, and it makes me think a serious competitor might pick this skin.  

AWP Neo-Noir

  • Added: December 6th, 2018
  • Lowest price: $27.90
AWP Neo-Noir

This a very artistic skin, for those with a sense of the aesthetic. And what I appreciate is that they’ve added touches of color, but not too much. A lot of people mistake the Noir style as being completely without color, but that’s not true. It certainly isn't vibrant because it intentionally plays with shadows, but the purple works here. 

AWP Containment Breach

  • Added: November 18th, 2019
  • Lowest price: $11.56

It’s literally designed around the idea of toxicity. How is this not the best troll skin in the game? Some 12-year-old who calls himself disease, or venom or parasite, probably loves ruining people’s day with the AWP using this skin. So, why include it in the list? Because those 12-year-old trolls are still a part of the community, and if they love the skin (which its popularity suggests they do) then it’s making it on the list, baby. 

With so many to choose from, this was tough. But we can say with some confidence, those are the best AWP skins in all of Counter Strike.
