The best CS:GO skins in 2020

Skin up.

CS:GO skins are a great way to show off your sense of fashion and add a nice element of luck to the game without affecting its gameplay.

Though the Steam Community Market is crowded with thousands of skins with different grades and wear, only some of them make the cut and become legendary skins. While most of the skins became popular due to their eye-catching looks, some rose to fame after a pro used them during an epic play, like the SSG 08 Detour. 

The skins featured below are organized in no particular order of extrinsic or intrinsic value. The rarities, the methods of unboxing, and the estimated prices are also listed for each weapon. Price estimation is based on sales numbers found on both the Steam Community Market and csgostash

When it comes to obtaining the skins on our list, testing your luck with cases may be appealing. But we strongly recommend saving up since, more often than not, players end up spending more on cases than they would spend on a single rare skin.
