The M4A1-S is an automatic rifle that you
can use to replace the M4A4 in your CS:GO loadout. Overall, many people seem to
prefer the M4A4 due to its larger ammo capacity but there are valid reasons to
consider the silenced M4A1-S. The addition of a silencer allows you to be
stealthier and more subtle with long-range combat. Besides this, the M4A1-S has
a lot of skins that make it appealing for those looking for just the right way.
Here are some of the best M4A1-S skins in CS:GO.
This automatic rifle skin is a part of The
Chroma 3 Collection, which was released in 2016. The bright and vibrant colors
look really nice. The fiery design can obscure some of the details but if you
pay attention you can notice some nice Aztec inspired motifs. Not only is this
one of our favorite M4A1-S skins, but it’s also probably one of the best weapon
finishes in the game. The bright yellow details on the paint job really stand
out. Although it’s not cheap, the Chantico’s Fire skin is available ranging
from 10$ to 80$, depending on the quality. There is a Stat-Trak version
available, which can cost from 30$ to over 400$ for the Factory New version.
If you don’t like flashy skins, you may do
well to look at the M4A1-S Cyrex. This weapon finish uses a simple but elegant
design to make a statement. The design combines a black base coat with red and
white highlights, giving the M4A1-S a high-tech design. The Cyrex is not too
expensive either and can range from 8$ to 15$, varying according to wear.
Stat-Trak variants of this skin are also available. It’s an earlier skin, released
in 2014 as part of the Operation Breakout update. This used to be one of the
most popular skins for this weapon and though it was eventually displaced by
newer ones, the design is still a striking one.
This is another simple skin that, in our
opinion, looks great. This skin is only available as Factory New, Minimal Wear
and Field-Tested. Stat-Trak variants of this weapon are also obtainable. A part
of The Arms Deal 2 Collection, this finish was first released in November 2013.
The red jungle tiger painted on the assault rifle makes your weapon look
menacing. This one is cheap too, as it can be gotten for just 2$. Even
Stat-Trak variants can cost less than 10$. So, if you’re looking for a cheap
skin, this is certainly one to keep an eye on.
The M4A1-S Mecha Industries finish is one
of the best looking in the game. It’s one of the few good white skins in the
game. The red and black accents make it look even better. The design is
reminiscent of high-tech mechas, giant robots that often appear in science
fiction genres. One of the great things about this one is that the variations
are really distinct looking and hence you can get exactly the kind of weapon
you want. Want a rugged automatic rifle that looks like it’s been through hell
and back? The Battle-Scarred version looks retro and used, while maintaining
the design details. If clean and sleek is more your cup of tea, you can get a
Stat-Trak Factory New version that will look like something out of the future.
It’s no wonder that this is a popular skin amongst M4A1-S users. This does mean
that it can be a bit expensive, however, but the prices aren’t astronomically
high. The Battle-Scarred version costs 10$ while the Factory New one costs up
to 36$. If you want to track your kills, Stat-Trak variants range from 25$ to
Etched with a Basilisk, this is one of the
classic skins in the game. It was initially released in November 2014, with the
Operation Vanguard update. This weapon is also available for cheap.
Field-Tested versions can be had for less than a dollar sometimes and even the
Factory New skin is available for 3$. You can also get this as a Stat-Trak
weapon and this looks particularly good. You can’t go wrong with this one as
this is insanely good value.
Overall, the M4A1-S might be less popular than its slightly better competitor but its skin collection is one of the best in the game. Not only are there many great finishes available, some of them are surprisingly cheap too. This makes this a great weapon to start out with when you want to show off a bit.
