The SSG 08 | Blood in the Water is the oldest skin in this list but is still one of the top SSG 08 skins up till now. The concept of the skin is a shark, and did Valve do one heck of a job with it. The image of the shark can be seen on the backside of the gun, with blood splatters covering the front side of the skin.
The skin overall follows the concept well and looks good at the same time. The image of the shark is airbrushed onto the weapon's skin, with no additional metal details added to it. Overall a straightforward but cool-looking design. It might be a good idea to invest in this skin.
SSG 08 | Dragonfire
The SSG 08 | Dragonfire was added to CS:GO on 29 November 2016. This skin was part of the release of the Glove Case and is currently starting at $18.44 on the Steam Market.
- Description: Sit on your horde and wait for any who come to take it
- Cheapest Steam Price: $18.44

We can see a trend where Valve loves adding dangerous creatures onto SSG 08 skins, as the SSG 08 | Dragonfire skin is based on a dragon being the central concept. The dragon can be seen to be breathing fire, which creates a great touch to the skin, making the front side of the weapon have a clean look.
The combination of blue, red, and yellow colors has been pulled off correctly, as the skin looks incredibly clean and fierce. The weapon has been given the hydrographic of the dragon breathing fire, with no additional materials.
SSG 08 | Turbo Peek
The SSG 08 | Turbo Peek was added to CS:GO on 22 September 2021. This skin was part of the release of the Operation Riptide Case and is currently starting at $8.43 on the Steam Market.

If you’re a racing car type of guy, this skin may be what you are looking for. The skin features actual racing cars placed into different parts of the skin, with bright colors to complement them. This is the type of skin that will give you the power to wide peek an AWPer and win.
The idea of the skin is to have these sports cars race down the sides of the skin. The sides of the skins are custom painted with bright, neon colors that will make you want to step on the gas. For more cheap skins like this one, check out our article on the best cheap skins.
SSG 08 | Bloodshot

- Description: All the better to see you with
- Cheapest Steam Price: $36.54
- Drops From: Shattered Web Case
- First Appeared On: 19 November 2019
The Bloodshot is the most chaotic skin on this list, so this could be an excellent choice for you if you're into that. Even with the Blood in the Water's shark, and the Dragonfire's dragon, this skin is the most monstrous one of them all, with tentacles and sharp teeth being the central concept of the skin.
The skin features custom paint of the monstrosity theme, with lots of different colors involved and fire trails left off to finish the skin. If you're looking to play like a monster on the server, this is the go-to skin to pick up.
SSG 08 | Death Strike
The SSG 08 | Death Strike was added to CS:GO on 22 September 2021. This skin was part of the release of the The 2021 Dust 2 Collection and is currently starting at $265.00 on the Steam Market.
- Description: That's gonna sting...
- Cheapest Steam Price: $265.00
- Drops From: The 2021 Dust 2 Collection

The most expensive skin on the list goes to the Death Strike. The skin has a minimalistic approach, with an emperor scorpion taking the spotlight. Beautiful streams of sand fill up the rest of the skin, making the skin look simple yet stunning.
Like most of the other skins on this list, the scorpion and streams of sand are custom painted. This is the skin to choose for the minimalists out there, especially when you’re playing on Dust II.
That is the list of the best SSG 08 skins in CS:GO! If you’d like to afford any of these skins in factory new condition, maybe a guide on how to trade can help you do so. Hopefully, these skins will allow you to get those juicy headshots and make your enemies rage!
