As a fellow weeb myself, I always get excited when games incorporate anime-themed skins. Luckily, CS2 has a lot of anime skins that you can equip to channel your inner weeb. That is why we will show you the 8 best anime skins in CS2 so that you can find the perfect one.

Remember that the ranking is based on the skins – not the guns. With that said, let’s dive right in and get started.

The M4A4 is one of my personal favorites in CS2, and it feels amazing to use this weapon. To make it even better, you can equip the Neo-Noir skin that has a beautiful vibe to it alongside stunning artwork as well.

This accentuates the weapon and makes it stand out from the rest thanks to its wonderful color scheme. Plus, you can inspect it to see the detailed artwork from up close as well. The girl featured on the weapon reminds me of Motoko from Ghost in the Shell due to her calm nature and how confident she looks.


AUG | Akihabara Accept

While I do not use the AUG nearly as much as I should, there is no denying that the Akihabara Accept skin looks phenomenal. It has a beautiful artwork on the butt of the weapon that features an anime girl – because why not.

Apart from that, there are various Japanese writings as well as a wacky purple magazine. The purple alongside white makes the AUG pop out and truly stands out for anime fans. Plus, the anime girl kind of looks like Sakura, so, if you’re a Naruto fan, that’s an incentive to get it.


AK-47 | The Empress

Like the M4A4, the AK-47 is a popular gun that many players love to use. Luckily, it also features an anime-themed skin that will allow you to channel your inner weeb. The Empress is a gorgeous skin that features vibrant colors and has one of the best artworks I’ve seen in CS2. It reminds me of something straight out of the Fate series, which is one of my favorite anime of all time.

Despite having so much artwork on the weapon, it isn’t distracting which is a great thing. The golden, black, and red match extremely well which makes this weapon look ten times better than almost any other skin.

I might be a bit biased toward the Neo-Noir skinline but you cannot deny how awesome it looks. Like with the other Neo-Noir skins, this one also features wonderful aesthetics along with some of the best color contrasts I’ve seen.

The purple aesthetic along with the stunning artwork on the weapon makes this AWP stand out from the rest. I love seeing this weapon in my games simply due to the detailed artwork. The purple mixed with white and a hint of black makes for a good combination, and it truly shows in this skinline.


Desert Eagle | Kumicho Dragon

This beautiful Deagle skin makes your gun look like something a yakuza – like Kiryu – would have. The wonderful purple handle combined with the dragon around its frame makes this a must-have for Deagle fans.

While you could go for the Fennec Fox to get a more “anime” vibe, you cannot deny how breathtaking this yakuza-styled gun looks. The overall textures are quite nice as the dragon wraps around the barrel and magazine to make the skin look even better.


Glock-18 | Bullet Queen

I almost picked the Neo-Noir for the Glock-18 as well but went with Bullet Queen for a number of reasons. Firstly, having Neo-Noir for all weapons wouldn’t be fun so having variety is always nice.

However, the main reason I selected this skin is due to how awesome it looks. The yellow and black color scheme goes well and makes the Glock look better than it is. Plus, the bullets and the anime-styled girl further enhance the beauty of this gun.

While some players have joked that this skin makes the gun look like a banana – due to the overall color scheme of yellow and black – I still find it to be a solid option if you’re looking for a Glock-18 skin.


Sawed-Off | Kiss Love

This beautiful skin has amazing artwork on both sides of the weapon. On one side, you can see the eyes of an anime girl with the words “CS GO” written alongside it. On the other side, you’ll find the same girl smiling with the words “Kiss Heart Love” – which is quite kawai if you ask me.

Having different art on both sides of the Sawed-Off makes it look better than I expected. Plus, the entire color scheme somehow matches perfectly with the overall aesthetic of the Sawed-Off. The girl featured on the frame looks similar to Tsukasa Hiiragi from Lucky Star – albeit a lot more sinister.


M4A1-S | Player Two

Finally, let’s talk about the M4A1-S. The Player Two skin looks phenomenal as it features a lot of artwork on the entire frame of the weapon. There is a lot going on so you’ll have to inspect the gun to see every little detail carefully.

The main artwork reminds me a lot of Megaman as he also has the iconic blue suit covering his body while his face is completely visible. Overall, the weapon has a lot of vibrant colors around the frame but the barrel looks the best. It has flames on the front that allow the barrel to pop out more than any other skin for the M4A1-S.

While it is too much for me, personally, I still adore this skin. There is no doubt that it makes the gun look great and is a fine addition for players who want anime skins in their collection.


And there you have it; those are the 8 best anime skins in CS2. There are a lot of options to choose from (some expensive and some cheap). So, make sure that you check out all the anime skins in CS2 before finally getting your favorite one.
