The AWP is one of the coolest guns in CS:GO due to its unique ability to kill in one shot, so finding the best cheap AWP skins is important to swag out your inventory. In this article we’re looking at people on a very tight budget, so here are our best AWP skins under 10 dollars, accurate as of July 2018.
1. AWP Safari Mesh – battle scarred:
Coming in as our most cheap AWP skin under $10, the battle-scarred Safari Mesh is a decent idea if you’re looking for a very cheap AWP skin. Getting the most worn appearance is super important as, on its own, the Safari Mesh skins are among the ugliest in the game. But when they’re battle-scarred you get a cool, rugged look that shows as much black/gray as it does the actual skin, making it almost look like an unpainted skin in parts.
2. AWP Pit Viper – minimal wear:
Another astonishingly cheap AWP is the minimal wear Pit Viper AWP, probably the best looking skin in terms of value for money. It looks different to most AWP skins and adds a welcome touch of color to the AWP. For that, it’s the best cheap AWP skin.
3. AWP Worm God – factory new:
The first factory new AWP and it only costs a dollar; good looking AWP skins are really not too expensive and can be bought by everyone. For a really low price you get a very cool graphic of vines, skulls, and all sorts of cool imagery you’d expect you’d need to pay much more for. This is certainly one of the best cheap AWP skins under $10 for those on a very small budget.
4. AWP Phobos – factory new – Our best cheap AWP skins
The AWP Phobos was released over a year ago yet doesn’t get the use I feel it should considering it’s low price tag. For pennies you can grab a cheap, new skin – way below our budget of 10 dollars. Also, with it not receiving much attention from the majority of players, you’re likely to be the only person on your team with this skin most games.
5. AWP Elite Build – factory new:
For a new, good looking AWP skin that is very good condition, you’d imagine paying much more than $10, yet you can grab the Elite Build for less than that. It’s not the cheapest AWP skin, but, man, it looks nice. Belonging to the same family as the popular AK skin, this weapon does get a lot of use by the community, but that doesn’t stop it being one of the best looking AWP skins under $10.
6. WP Corticera – minimal wear:
A weapon skin I feel has been ignored a bit by the majority of players due to how long it’s been around in CS:GO is the AWP Corticera. Despite its age, this skin has the lush color contrast you want in a weapon. For new and old players alike, either for a different skin or a nostalgic one, the Corticera is one of the best AWP skins under 10 dollars.
7. AWP Pink DDPAT – minimal wear:
One of my personal favorites, the Pink DDPAT is a weapon I can’t help but associate with GuardiaN, the first player I saw using it and a true artist with the weapon. The factory new condition is above $10, but the minimal wear still looks stunning and is a great addition to any loadout.
8. AWP Fever Dream – minimal wear:
The only skin on this list from 2017 is the Fever Dream and, luckily for us, its price is cheap enough for us to look at its minimal wear version. The design looks almost graffiti-like, and has lots of quirky and stunning images to make this a killer of a skin for under 10 dollars. Make sure you do that #HEADSHOT proud, though.
9. AWP Man-o’-war – minimal wear – Our best AWP skin for under 10 dollars:
To be able to get a minimal wear red skin for way under $10 is crazy, and it just happens that it’s one of the best looking AWP skins you’ll set your eyes on in CS:GO. It’s relatively-modest price tag makes it affordable, too, and the Man-o’-war definitely takes my vote as the best skin of this list. It just looks so royal and polished.
