People who’ve been playing Counter-Strike for many years know that AUG plays a very important role for the CT side. Here's our look at some of CS:GO's Best AUG Skins.
Even though this weapon has always been in the shadow of the M4A4, some people use it all the time, especially in CS:GO. In fact, there was a meta that focused heavily on this weapon back in 2019. Many people (professional and casual players alike) thought that the AUG was too powerful. Besides having a great aim, the weapon’s fire rate and damage were impressive, to say the least. Furthermore, this weapon had a scope, which gave it a definite advantage against the AK-47.
Even though AUG has been nerfed a couple of times since then, the weapon continues to play a special role for many players. With that being said, let’s take a look at some of the most popular skins for this gun that you can put to the test.
The first skin we’d like to share with you is Akihabara Accept, which became available in 2015. This CS:GO skin was a part of The Rising Sun Collection, and it is named after a very popular district in Tokyo.
To live up to its name, this skin uses interesting colors, such as blue and white, as well as different Japanese inscriptions. Like many Japanese art pieces, this one also has an image of a girl with pink hair holding a gun.
This skin is pretty popular when writing this article, which is why its price can reach between $350 and $6500. Needless to say, only a few players can afford to buy this skin, so having it will make you stand out.
If you are not a fan of CSGO skins that look strange and use bright colors, this is an option that you should definitely take into consideration. Copperhead does not use any bright colors or strange artwork that doesn’t fit in the game. Instead, this CSGO skin focuses on brown, black, and grey.
Even though this skin won’t be everyone’s cup of tea, it is expensive and can often reach over $70. As a result, it is not an option for everyone. Speaking of options, Copperhead became available in 2013 because it was a part of The Dust collection.
This is among the most exciting skins in the game for AUG because it makes the weapon looks cool. As its name suggests, this skin imitates the colors found on a Bengal tiger. In other words, you can find orange, white, and tons of black stripes.
The Bengal Tiger became available in 2014, and it quickly became one of the most popular skins for this weapon. Its Float Value is between 0.06 and 0.80, which means you can find it in all sorts of conditions. As for the price, the lowest price we came across was around $4, whereas the highest reached almost $141. The price depends on the skin’s condition, as well as loads of other things.
If you are not a fan ot skins that don’t pop out, Hot Rod is one of the best options you can get. Unlike other options that use loads of colors and different images, this one is all about red and black. These two colors have always worked well together, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that we can find them more often than others.
Unlike other CSGO skins for AUG, this one is only available in Factor New and Minimal Wear conditions. As a result, its price can regularly reach more than $300, which is a lot, to say the least.
Hot Rod became a part of the game in 2013 during The Assault Collection. Despite its high price, you can typically see this skin because it makes the AUG pop out.
If the red and black are too strong for you, you can try out the skin called Momentum. This thing became available in 2019 during The Seeing The Light update, and it quickly rose to the top because of its price. Unlike some options here that can cost up to a couple of hundred dollars, this one starts from around $1.5 and can reach up to $117 for the Factory New StatTrak version.
As for the AUG’s skins, it uses an interesting selection of colors like green, red, and black. Even though the combination doesn’t seem that appealing, this CS:GO skin makes the weapon look futuristic.
While we are talking about futuristic designs, we have to share more information about the skin called Torque. This skin uses black, white, and a few shades of yellow/green. You can find it in all sorts of conditions. The Well-Worn version can start from around $4, but if you want a StatTrak Factory New, you must be ready to pay at least $14.
Despite the fact Valve added this skin in 2014, it continues to be an attractive option for many players because of its price. You can rarely come across such a good-looking skin for as low as $4.
The last skin we’d like to share with you in this article is called Ricochet. To live up to its name, this skin offers an interesting color pattern of black and turquoise lines that seem to ricochet numerous times. The magazine itself is painted matte gray, which is good because the lines pop out.
One of the best things about this skin is its price. If you are on a budget and don’t want to spend a lot of money, this is one of the best options out there because you can find it for as low as $0.05. If you want to have the best of the best, you have to be ready to pay around $3 for a StatTrak Factory New.
Ricochet became available in CSGO in 2015 when it was a part of the CS:GO’s Winter Update.
