If you’re looking to upgrade your CSGO inventory without emptying your bank balance, this list will be hugely beneficial. Lion Sourced have compiled the top 5 cheap CSGO skins that cost $1.00 or less – We are using dollars for this post as that’s typically the currency needed in order to purchase these items. Also, we will be replying on the CSGO stash database for most of the prices seen in this article.
1. AK47 – Baroque Purple
We had to start this list with an AK47 skin, with this being the most used rifle in the game since it was released back in 2012. The Baroque Purple skin is a part of the The Canals Collection and offers a very minimalist feel with a deep purple hydrographic pattern repeated across the main body of the gun. A well-worn variant of this skin can be picked up for exactly $1 on sites such as DMarket and to be honest, I prefer the appearance of this particular item with a bit of visible wear.
2. Desert Eagle – Bronze Deco
When it comes to the Desert Eagle Bronze Deco skin, I cannot wrap my head around the price being so low. It’s clean, look’s great with almost any sticker combination and belongs to arguably the most popular pistol in the game. To my surprise, all standard conditions of this skin can be picked up for under 70 cents. If you’re a fan of the Deagle, this one seems like a no-brainer.
3. SSG 08 – Mainframe 001
Sure, you’re not going to be using the scout sniper as frequently as the AWP, but this skin is definitely worth the cheap price tag. The Mainframe 001 can be picked up for about 50 cents in minimal wear, with the Statrak variants field-tested and below all being available within the $1 budget.
4. P250 – Verdigris
I like to call this skin the ‘marmite’ pick of the list, simply because you’ll either love or hate the colour combination on the P250. This skin is primarily a golden/orange colour with streaks of green creeping through, however, the skin progressively gets darker as the wear rating increases. For under 50 cents, you can take your pick and have any variation, from battle-scarred all the way up to factory new. In my humble opinion – factory new is the way to go.
5. AK47 – Elite Build
Scenes as we started with an AK47 skin, it only feels right to end on a similar note. You can purchase the field-tested condition of this skin and below with a $1 budget. This AK47 has a smooth black finish all over, with orange details at prominent points. The elite build is from the Chroma 2 collection, the same case as the previously mentioned Desert Eagle.
That concludes our list of the top 5 skins you can buy for $1 or less. If you’re stuck with which skins to prioritize, I would recommend heading over to a site that provides your CSGO stats and purchase each item based on how often it is used – This way, you’re getting the most bang for your buck!
