We'll be covering 15 of the coolest skins that you can purchase for your in game inventory at this budget!
AK-47 The Empress
The first skin to start off the list is the AK-47 The Empress skin from the Spectrum Collection. The Empress has lots of different bursts of colors being combined to make a highly detailed weapon skin. Definitely one of the best AK-47 skins that you can get for under $40.

The next skin is the M4A1-S Cyrex, which is an old skin that was released all the way back on the Operation Breakout update. The Cyrex features a high tech design with the three colors being red, white, and black. Overall a super clean skin that we recommend getting for the M4A1-S.
You can get a M4A1-S Cyrex in Factory New condition for $33.67 on the Steam Market.
M4A4 The Emperor
Following the AK-47 The Empress is its counter-part, the M4A4 The Emperor. The Emperor skin has a picture of an emperor, surrounded by many different bursts of colors. It's a highly detailed skin and the blue color on an M4A4 just feels right.
You can get a M4A4 The Emperor in Minimal Wear condition for $30.15 on the Steam Market.
For the AWP skin, we have decided to feature the AWP Neo-Noir. The main idea of the skin is to focus on a blue-magenta picture of a woman, and surround it with different colors on a grayscale background. Definitely a good AWP skin at this price point.
You can get an AWP Neo-Noir in Minimal Wear condition for $34.96 on the Steam Market.
SSG 08 Blood in the Water
Next up we have what's considered as the best Scout skin of all time, the SSG 08 Blood in the Water. This skin has been out for almost a decade, but lots of CSGO fans still love the skin for the design. This is an OG skin that has maintained relevance over years.
You can get a SSG 08 Blood in the Water in Minimal Wear condition for $36.70 on the Steam Market.
SG 553 Integrale
From the Inferno collection, we have the SG 553 Integrale. The main idea of the skin comes from an Italian racing car, so if you're into racing cars then this is probably the skin for you.
You can get a SG 553 Integrale in Field Tested condition for $29.00 on the Steam Market.
Galil AR Sugar Rush
The Galil AR skin we've chosen to feature on this list is the Galil AR Sugar Rush. The skin has been custom painted using the color scheme of cotton candy. It's a really bright skin that can easily catch the attention of lots of people.
You can get a Galil AR Sugar Rush in Minimal Wear condition for $39.01 on the Steam Market.
Moving on to the pistols, we have a second appearance of the Neo-Noir, as the Glock-18 Neo-Noir is next on the list. The weapon skin just looks very creative, and the color scheme of it works really well with the small size of the Glock-18.
You can get a Glock-18 Neo-Noir in Factory New condition for $39.82 on the Steam Market.
USP-S The Traitor
Next up we have the USP-S The Traitor from the recent Snakebite Collection. USP-S skins are usually either super expensive, or super cheap, so The Traitor is arguably the best USP-S skin if we're looking for a skin that's in the middle of the two extreme price points.
You can get a USP-S The Traitor in Minimal Wear condition for $26.58 on the Steam Market.
The Tec-9 Decimator is easily one of the best Tec-9 skins available in the game. The Decimator features blue and pink highlights throughout the gun, and is an amazing choice of a skin if you're a big fan of neon and bright colors.
You can get a Tec-9 Decimator in Factory New condition for $30.39 on the Steam Market.
Desert Eagle Ocean Drive
Of course, a best skins list wouldn't be a best skins list without a Deagle skin, so we think that the Desert Eagle Ocean Drive is appropriate for this price range. This is a very colorful skin that is an amazing choice for people who like skins that stand out.
You can get a Desert Eagle Ocean Drive in Minimal Wear condition for $34.36 on the Steam Market.
Five-SeveN Hyper Beast
The Hyper Beast skin lineup needs no introduction, as the Five-SeveN Hyper Beast skin will join the list. The Five-SeveN Hyper Beast is the cheapest Hyper Beast skin you can get, where you can get a Minimal Wear one for a bit over $30.
You can get a Five-SeveN Hyper Beast in Minimal Wear condition for $30.60 on the Steam Market.
To start off the SMGs section, we have the MAC-10 Stalker from the Shattered Web Collection. This is a really cool skin which includes a neon blue cat, with yellow and black striped on the rest of the skin. The colors work really well together to make this one of the best MAC-10 skins in the game.
You can get a MAC-10 Stalker in Minimal Wear condition for $22.81 on the Steam Market.
MP9 Starlight Protector
Next is in our opinion, the best skin when it comes to the MP9, the MP9 Starlight Protector. The weapon skin has a paint job which showcases a unicorn with lots of rainbow colors, and the skin is finished off with gold accents.
You can get a MP9 Starlight Protector in Minimal Wear condition for $39.29 on the Steam Market.
To close off our list, we'll have the P90 Asiimov as the last entrant. The Asiimov features a custom paint job with a sci-fi design. The orange and white colors fit really well together to come up with a simple, yet appealing design especially for minimalists.
