The most popular CS:GO skins (2021)


Trends in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive change every year. Some skins that were once extremely popular over time can become interesting only to individual collectors. Today, CS.MONEY talks about the most popular skins of 2021.

In this post:


Among all the skins for this starter pistol, the most popular one is USP-S Cyrex in Field-Tested condition. The skin was added to the game at the end of 2016 as part of the Glove Collection. Even being worn “Cyrex” looks great and has quite an affordable price.

Pro-choice: among the pro players, we know Alexander S1mple Kostylev who is a big fan of “Cyrex”. He has a Factory New version of the skin with a StatTrak counter. Pros also love USP-S Neo-Noir that can be found in the inventories of Denis “electronic” Sharipov, Nemanja “huNter-” Kovac, and many other players.

Offensive players often choose Glock-18 High Beam. Most players buy it in Factory New condition. Interestingly, this skin at high Float Values is more expensive than a brand-new one. “High Beam” was added to the game at the end of August 2018 and is part of The 2018 Inferno Collection.

Pro-choice: the newly arrived Glock-18 Synth Leaf, which appeared in the game as part of The St. Marс Collection and quickly conquered the hearts of pros. It is often used by players such as Tomas “oscar” St’astny and Nemanja “nexa” Isakovic.

The most popular skin for the game’s most popular rifle is “Redline” in Field-Tested condition. The skin was added to CS:GO in February 2014 as part of The Phoenix Collection. Another skin that can compete with “Redline” in terms of popularity is AK-47 Uncharted.

Pro-choice: if we discard such an obvious option as AK-47 Fire Serpent, it would be difficult to single out a skin that might be considered to be the most popular one among pro players. Simon “twist” Eliasson uses “Asiimov”, and the already mentioned Nemanja “huNter-” Kovac uses “Vulcan”

The leading position among the AWP skins holds “Atheris” in Field-Tested condition. Being added only a year ago, “Atheris” quickly became one of the most popular skins for this type of weapon. The key to its success is a combination of a relatively low price and a high-quality image.

Pro-choice: professional snipers use various skins, but the classic choice would be still “Asiimov”. The most famous owner of this skin is, of course, Kenny “kennyS” Schrub. His AWP Asiimov with the nickname “Magic Stick” has been scaring enemies for years.
