The AK-47 is one of the most recognizable guns in CS:GO, and as such you really want the best looking skin on that gun; you probably use it on almost half of the rounds in a match. Here are 11 of the best ak skins CS:GO has to offer, all under 10 dollars, that look great despite their cheap price tag.
Prices are accurate as of November 2018.
The AK Elite Build was introduced into the game and immediately adopted by a large portion of the players due to its slick simplicity and how nice looking it was, and is up there with the best cheap AK skins. For those on a very tight budget, this is certainly one to look at.
The Cartel skin takes the natural color scheme from the plain AK 47 and throws in some shiny surfaces and cool artwork to give this skin a more classy air. Just think of it as a brighter, more stylish vanilla AK, keeping a certified beauty of a color scheme but enhancing it.
The laminate series of AKs in CS:GO features three colors: red, black, and blue. The blue contrasts nicely with the rest of the black AK and keeps its price low, as there is nothing super fancy about this skin. Out of all the laminates, the Blue Laminate is the skin that gives you the most bang for your buck and is the best cheap AK skin you’ll find out of the set.
It’s another Elite Build, but this time you get to track how many kills you collect with the most used weapon in CS:GO, making it a great deal. If you’re going to put a StatTrak on any of your weapons, it should be the one you use most in the game, provided you’re not an AWPer.
The Orbit Mk01 came out in 2017, and it still looks great. Since it’s existed in the game for a fair bit of time now it’s a smart purchase to make if you’re AK shopping for a skin under $10.
One of the most classic looks for the AK 47 has to be the Redline, utilizing a simple red on black color scheme to make your primary gun look amazing. You won’t find many AK-47 skins better than this one.
To be able to grab an intricate skin like the Frontside Misty for under $10 is crazy, and is a decent condition too. Despite being released two years ago it is still one of the most stunning rifle skins out there, and well worth the pick up for under 10 bucks.
You know you’ve found one of the best skin deals in CS:GO when you can snag an AK with a Jaguar on it for under 10 dollars. The skin is so cheap due to it being slightly old, but that doesn’t take away from how imposing it is.
The AK Point Disarray is an explosion of bright colors that works really well on a gun skin. Field tested looks clean and can be picked up without spending much money, making this a better option than the minimal wear or factory new versions.
For us, the Vulcan is the most iconic AK skin by a mile, as a few years ago it was the skin everyone wanted, where all the pro players used one. Despite there being lots more options now, it holds its value. While only being battle scarred, owning a Vulcan for 10 dollars is definitely worth it, especially if you’ve played the game for a while.
Though you might not expect it, the well worn Aquamarine Revenge looks very clean. The skin design is awesome; fusing fire with water, so definitely consider it if you are on the hunt for a cheap AK skin as this is one of the best, and one of the best AK-47 designs in general.
