Neon lights are evocative of what advertising of the past was. Signs of red, orange, and other colors used to decorate not only the streets of mega-cities in cyberpunk fiction but also real cities. Now, with retro-wave and old-school cyberpunk esthetics being all the rage again, we decided to gather the most “neon” skins in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.
Actually, neon lights only burn in shades of red, but we won’t be nerds. Instead of a scrupulous search for bright red skins, we’ll tell you about the most vivid and cool items in the game.
Of course, we’ll start with those skins which have the word “neon” in their name. And the first in line is AK-47 Neon Revolution, which has nothing to do with cyberpunk, advertising, or the gas itself.
Then why “neon revolution”? Because the skin is executed in bright acid-pink and green with black elements. The huge Anarchy inscription is the icing on the cake. This what the “neon revolution” looks like.
Two skins devoted to the same subject. Both give a powerful retrowave vibe. Don’t forget about the brutal rider, who’s brandishing his fists on the AK-47 and flaunting the cool pattern on his helmet on the MAC-10.
The color scheme chosen complies with the canons as well: bright turquoise and pink with shades of purple. If you look closely, AK-47 Neon Rider has a silhouette of a megapolis in the background. A stereotype set of cool effects from the 80s. And it’s really cool!
Another skin that exploits the theme of the big city. Skyscrapers, bridges, a river, and a huge moon that fills the whole space with neon-pink light — this is no scene from some cyberpunk comic book but the image on UMP-45 Moonrise
This doesn’t exactly have to do much with neon, but after the previous item on the list, we couldn’t but mention Glock-18 Vogue. Similarly, it’s saturated with an intense 80s vibe. This time, instead of a biker, we see the eyes of a fashion magazine model, and instead of a city in the background bright lines.
Again pink, again blue, again a city in the background and again contrasting colors with a simple pattern. Modern neo-noir goes well with vividness and neon.
Drive by Nicholas Winding Refn doesn’t just come down to the handsome Gosling at the wheel. It’s also a bright, literally neon image of the streets of night Los Angeles with a retrowave soundtrack.
The images of M4A4 Neo-Noir and USP-S Neo-Noir contain no neon signs or overly acidic colors, but these skins touch upon the theme of neo-noir very subtly, associated with the signs and colors.
Acid colors are back in business. Just like AK-47 Neon Revolution, MP5-SD Phosphor is executed in very bright colors. Only this time, they assumed the form of a gradient from (surprise!) blue to pink. Simple and elegant.
Blue, pink, broken lines, a dark background, and a striped logo. The creator of M4A1-S Decimator scrupulously reproduced all the trappings of retrowave esthetics. For this reason, his skin features the selection too.
By the way, Tec-9 Decimator, which uses the same pattern, looks much brighter and cooler. Check out both skins and if you like them, don’t forget to visit us at CS.MONEY. There you can buy them quickly and at a low price.
No kidding, the color scheme is again that of blue, pink, and black. This time, used by Sport Gloves Vice. And hell, do they look stylish on their own! And if you use them in combination with any of the skins listed above, you’ll be invincible and make your teammates green with envy.
There are no alternatives for a neon inventory. Only Sport Gloves Vice. Only neon.
