With so many CS2 skins to choose from, there are options inspired by a variety of themes, and seasons are no exception. Although monochromatic and minimalistic skins, which are most appropriate for winter, are not added to the game very often, you can still find them. Plus, winter isn’t just about white snow, it’s also about shades of green, red, and orange. In this article written by Volodymyr Huda you will find the best skins that have winter motifs. You can also find the latest CS2 matches on the Profiler platform and look at these and other skins in the game.
The Best Skins With a Winter Mood
Skins in CS2 are a great opportunity to demonstrate your playing style and status to your opponents. If you want to update your inventory and prefer minimalistic skins, we recommend paying attention to skins that will also perfectly complement the winter mood.
AK-47 | Frontside Misty
The design of the AK-47 Frontside Misty is convincing proof that a “winter” skin can be vibrant. Its coloring is inspired by snow swirls and frosty patterns on windows. Almost the entire body is covered with white and blue swirls on a black background, and carbon inserts add expressiveness to the texture.
AUG | Arctic Wolf
But AUG | Arctic Wolf is painted almost entirely white, but the color transition and wolf-like pattern give it an interesting look. The barrel and front of the body are left white, while closer to the butt the pattern turns gray and purple. The sight is also left gray, while individual red accents and a dark red magazine make the design even more menacing.
Five Seven | Orange Peel
One of the traditional New Year’s treats is citrus fruits, and you can add a skin to your collection that is reminiscent of their bright colors. This is Five Seven | Orange Peel. Some may feel that the shade of orange here is not expressive enough, but if you are lucky with the pattern index, there will be more bright stripes on the body of the pistol. Another skin that may appeal to fans of orange is SSG 08 | Threat Detected.
USP-S | Whiteout
USP-S | Whiteout is one of the few skins in CS2 that is painted almost entirely white. If you are looking for a weapon that is easy to camouflage against the white snow, this is your choice. Don’t forget to replenish your inventory with two more guns from this collection – P250 | Whiteout and MP7 | Whiteout. Their only drawback is the high price of low float versions since any scratches are clearly visible on a white background.
M4A1-S | Printstream
The Printstream series skins can also be classified as winter, although their design is based on a combination of white and black. For example, the M4A4-S | The Printstream grip, stock, and barrel section are finished in black, while the silencer and most of the body are white. Printstream is one of those designs that is interesting to look at. The textures here are carefully designed, and the body is decorated with various symbols and pictograms. By the way, this skin is in the inventory of the player Oleksandr “s1mple” Kostyliev from the Navi team. And the cost of a skin can exceed $1000.
Glock-18 | Candy Apple
This amazing skin combines brightness and understatement at the same time with a simple two-tone design. Thanks to its minimalistic but expressive coloring and low price, the Glock-18 Candy Apple skin is always popular. In addition, in addition to the Glock-18, this series includes five more types of weapons, so there is a suitable option for any playing style.
P90 | Glacier Mesh
Another interesting skin with a winter design is P90 | Glacier Mesh. It was added to the game back in 2013. You may often notice this skin in the hands of players, although it is not among the most popular. The entire body of the submachine gun is covered in white, gray, and blue stripes, as if spray-painted, with a mesh pattern applied on top of them.
Galil AR | Rocket Pop
But Galil AR | Rocket Pop can be a good reminder of harsh winters and the Arctic. Moreover, the festive name and bright colors will definitely lift your spirits. Despite the fact that the Galil AR is not a very popular type of weapon, this skin, painted in a geometric pattern of white, red, and blue stripes and spots, will be a worthy addition to your collection.
Dual Berettas | Twin Turbo
The combination of red and green can be seen on a variety of holiday items, from Christmas tree decorations and garlands to Christmas sweaters. The red and green design of the Dual Berettas | Twin Turbo is inspired by racing cars, but these twin Berettas are also a great addition to a new collection, especially when decorated with decals in the same colors.
Nova | Bloomstick
If you are a lover of spring and flowering trees, and in winter you only dream of summer, we recommend paying attention to designs with floral motifs, such as Nova Bloomstick. The body of the shotgun is covered with scarlet paint, against which black branches with flower petals are depicted. This skin is a great symbol of hope and readiness for revival or setting new goals.
