M4A1-S is one of the rifles you can use on the Counter-Terrorist side of CS: GO. It’s a gun that’s pretty famous among people who play the game. It works pretty well thanks to the silencer, and many people like it better than the other choice for that slot, the M4A4.
Even though there have been a lot of balance changes, the M4A1-S is still in the game and is used by both pros and regular players. Also, like all the other guns in CS: GO, you can get skins for the M4A1-S that make it look better.
In the next part, we list the best skins for the rifle in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive based on how popular they are, how nice they look, and how much they cost.
10. M4A1-S Welcome To The Jungle
M4A1-S Welcome to the Jungle is one of the better maps for the M4A1-S, and Valve added it to CS: GO as part of Operation Broken Fang. It is part of “The Ancient Collection” and makes the weapon look more interesting.
But because the skin is rare, it costs too much for most people to buy. If you just want your skin to look good, it would be better to get one that costs less. No matter which version you choose, the M4A1-S Welcome to the Jungle Souvenir or the base version are both great.
9. M4A1-S Blue Phosphor
M4A1-S Blue Phosphor is one of the cleanest-looking skins for the weapon, and it’s a great choice if you’re making an inventory that’s all blue. There are no fancy designs on the skin, and blue is the only color, so it has a simple look.
M4A1-S Blue Phosphor is rare, just like Welcome to the Jungle, because you can’t get it from a box. So, if you want to buy it, you would have to look for listings on the Steam marketplace or one of the other online markets.
8. M4A1-S Player Two
M4A1-S Player Two could be a great choice if you want a totally different skin for your M4A1-S. It is painted in bright colors and has cartoon versions of GIGN CT and Pop Dog on it, which are great throwbacks.
The skin was mostly made by Kadzor, who also made M4A4 In Living Color and AUG Tom Cat, two other great skins. The Battle-Scarred version of the skin can be bought for about $13, while the Factory New version costs a lot more, at over $110.
7. M4A1-S Nightmare
If you don’t have a lot of money, you might want to get the M4A1-S Nightmare. It’s one of the best skins you can get for a low price. Valve put the skin in CS: GO as part of the Horizon Case, and it has been there since August 2018.
The M4A1-S Nightmare’s scary design adds to its overall look, and you would definitely enjoy seeing this in-game. The “Factory New” version of the skin costs about $47, and the “Battle-Scarred” version costs just under $6.
6. M4A1-S Chantico’s Fire
Chantico’s Fire is one of the skins for the M4A1-S that looks the best. The bright colors and intricate designs give it a great look. The yellow color and the printing designs make the skin stand out even more, and you can keep it in mind if you want to buy good skin for the weapon.
Valve released the Chroma 3 Case in April 2016, which includes the M4A1-S Chantico’s Fire. So, you can either try to open the case or buy the skin straight to get your hands on it.
5. M4A1-S Decimator
In addition to Nightmare, M4A1-S Decimator is another nice skin for the gun that doesn’t cost too much. It has just the right amount of blue and pink highlights that make it look kind of cute.
Coridium came up with the idea for M4A1-S Decimator. The artist has worked on a number of famous skins in the past, such as the whole Asiimov collection and AK-47 Neon Revolution. The Factory New form of the skin costs more than $30, while all of the other basic versions cost less than $17. You might even get 2.3–2.4x as many StarTrack versions as regular ones.
4. M4A1-S Hot Rod
The CS: GO community has mixed feelings about M4A1-S Hot Rod. Some people hate the clear red look, while others love it. The skin was added to the first-person shooter in May 2015 and is part of the Chop Shop Collection, which was launched with Operation Bloodhound.
The M4A1-S Hot Rod only has a few listings, and only a small number of people have it, so it costs more than $1,000. So, buyers or fans who want to add this valuable skin to their collections can pay money for it.
3. M4A1-S Golden Coil
M4A1-S Golden Coil is one of the best skins for the M4A1-S in the game. It looks appealing with its gold and black theme. The design of the snake and the scales on its skin add to its look, and people in the community give it high marks.
The price of an M4A1-S Golden Coil can be anywhere between $190 and $30. Factory New costs $190, while Battle-Scarred costs $30. But getting the Factory New or Minimal Wear versions only keeps the original look, and getting the float on the lower end of the scale might not look the best.
3. M4A1-S Golden Coil
The M4A1-S Hyper Beast skin is definitely one of the best M4A1-S skins and a lot of people like it. The skin was made by the frontal lobe, and it was added to CS: GO in April 2015 as part of the Chroma 2 case.
The bright colors and the design of the scary creature go together pretty well, and it’s fun to get frags while using this. You could even see a lot of pro players using this in games.
1. M4A1-S Printstream
M4A1-S Printstream is at the top of the list, and if you get this along with the USP-S Printstream, you can make the right set for the CT side. It has a black-and-white pattern with a pearly touch that makes the look more elegant.
This skin is younger than most of the others on the list. It was added to CS: GO as part of the Operation Broken Fang Case in December 2020. The Factory New model costs more than $600, which is too much for most games. However, the Field-Tested model and the other two models cost less than $200.
