Looking for an AWP Skin Under $10?  

  • Share:

Every Counter-Strike: Global Offensive enthusiast has tried their hand with the famous AWP (previously known as Magnum Sniper Rifle). This incredible weapon is known to be a high risk-high reward as it boasts incredible powers that come at a high cost. You can take out any enemy in a single shot, but its firing rate and reload time are remarkably slower. Not to mention that your movement speed will suffer as well. 

So, obviously, it’s not a weapon for everyone. But, if you’re brave enough to use it, you and your team stand to gain quite a lot. This long-range weapon strikes fear in your enemies’ hearts, delivering devastating blows with every bullet fired. And if you want your rifle to look just as great as it performs, you can adorn it in a wide variety of awesome skins. 

AWP skins can go for thousands of dollars on CSGO gambling sites, but you don’t have to break the bank to get a great-looking skin. There are plenty of affordable options out there, and you can find incredible skins for well under $10. Take a look. 

Skins Don't Have to be Expensive to Look Good  

It’s easy to assume that AWP skins need to be expensive to look good, but that’s not necessarily true. Sure, many of those that go for a few hundred dollars do look absolutely stunning, but you can certainly draw attention with those that go for just a couple of bucks. 

Affordable AWP skins can suit anyone’s tastes and preferences, whether you want to leave the impression of an experienced, battle-worn soldier or of a fun-loving goofball who kicks ass in any matchup. 

So, don’t be afraid to look for cheap AWP skins as there are plenty of treasures you can find. Either way, skins are only for cosmetic purposes – they won’t make your rifle any more powerful or unique than it already is. You don’t need to spend your life savings on them. 

Bear in Mind That Prices Change Quickly 

Of course, like any inventory item in CS:GO, skin prices fluctuate on a daily basis. An AWP skin can go from $5 to $500 seemingly overnight. That’s great news if the value of the skin in your inventory increases suddenly – you can trade it for more expensive things. 

However, that also means that today’s most affordable AWP skins can be much more expensive tomorrow. The skins we’ll go over here are at $10 or below at the time of writing, but make sure to double-check their price tag when you decide to buy them. 

So, without further ado, take a look at some of the best and (currently) most affordable AWP skins you can get your hands on. 


The Atheris skin can be a perfect choice for anyone wielding a rifle as powerful as the AWP. Some of the best skins in CS:GO often boast magnificent creatures and predators, and this one is no different. The slithering bush viper Atheris looks stunning on AWP. Elegant, vicious, and dangerous, it will intimidate any enemy and give you quite a confidence boost with every bullet fired. 

Pit Viper

Sticking with the serpentine theme, we have the intricate Pit Viper skin. With mesmerizing shades of green and intricate details, it stands out as one of the best-looking skins you can find. Quite unique and astonishingly cheap, you can get Pit Viper for as low as $1.01. 

Fever Dream

Fever Dream is one of the fan favorites. With its punk-style, graffiti-like appearance and wonderful pops of color, it’s ideal for anyone who likes to stick out on the field of battle and completely annihilate their enemies. It’s quirky, colorful, badass, and most importantly – affordable. 

Sun in Leo 

Sun in Leo might just be one of the most popular cheap skins for AWP in CS:GO. It’s an absolute classic and looks completely amazing in-game. Bonus points for being the most astonishing shade of blue! You can find Sun in Leo AWP skin for just under $7 in “Factory New” condition. 

Worm God

Worm God is surprisingly intricate for a ∼$2, “Factory New” AWP skin. To be honest, it’s not for everyone since it has a bit of a creepy vibe with the twirling vines and weird swirls, but it still looks great for such an affordable skin. 


Corticera is somewhat reminiscent of the incredibly expensive Medusa AWP skin. It has those greenish-blueish shades that are so often associated with Medusa, so it’s the perfect alternative for it if you’re on a limited budget. 

Elite Build

Elite Build is elegant, simple, and will make you feel like quite a pro. It’s a great-looking AWP skin in excellent condition that’s surprisingly cheap. “Factory New” Elite Build will go a bit over $10, but you can get “Battle Scarred” which looks almost as good for well under $10. 

Safari Mesh 

For the longest time, Safari Mesh was the cheapest skin for AWP in CS:GO. The “Factory New” one would only cost you about $2, which is quite amazing. Depending on who you ask, it isn’t as visually pleasing as some of the more expensive skins, but many think it looks striking. As an added bonus, it tends to blend in with the surroundings, so you’ll be pretty hard to spot, which could mean the difference between winning and losing! 


If you like more of an edgy skin that creeps your enemies out, get yourself a Mortis. With a wonderful pattern, well-placed skull, eye-catching horse skeleton, and the prominent unlucky number XIII, it’s quite a great skin. 

Electric Hive

Electric Hive might just be one of the best affordable skins in CS:GO. It’s just what you imagine when you hear its name – it has a beautiful hive pattern that slowly transitions from electric shades of blue to mesmerizing purple and fiery red. This skin is a must-have! 


There’s no need to break the bank every time you want a new AWP skin in CS:GO. These affordable options are truly amazing and will suit your taste no matter what. So, check them out, find your favorite, and get it before its price increases!
