Understanding CS2 spray patterns is key to mastering weapon control in the game.

10. Galil AR

In CS2, weapon accuracy varies depending on movement and the weapon being used.

Galil AR

Although many players often ignore Galil AR, this gun is worth getting into your wishlist of in-game weapons. It’s an ideal option if you don’t have enough money to buy an AK-47 while playing as a terrorist. For only $1,800, you’ll get a rifle with high accuracy, moderate recoil, and 35 bullets in the magazine. Of course, Galil AR has several flaws. You’ll never kill an opponent with only one bullet if they are at a full level of health and armor, even if you shoot right into their head.

Rapidity of fire: 666

Recoil: 20/26 (76%)

Price: $1,800

Kill reward: $300

9. MAG-7

MAG-7

This mighty shotgun is a great way to get extra funds due to a $900 kill reward. MAG-7 is an ideal option for suppression and gunfights inside tiny rooms and corridors. Although the gun has a relatively low rate of fire, it’s compensated by its damage and accuracy. Also, high magazine capacity is another feature that makes MAG-7 one of CS2’s best weapons.

Rapidity of fire: 71

Recoil: 1/26 (4%)

Price: $1,300

Kill reward: $900

8. TEC-9

TEC-9

Getting TEC-9 in the early rounds allows you to take control of narrow corridors and confined spaces and then simply sweep your opponents away with a torrent of bullets. Backed up by excellent damage, it is undoubtedly one of the most popular CS2 weapons.

Rapidity of fire: 500

Recoil: 17/26 (65%)

Price: $500

Kill reward: $300

7. AUG

AUG

The choice between M4A4 vs. M4A1 has always been a hot topic among players.

This is by far one of the best weapons in CS. The gun combines the damage of an assault rifle with the accuracy of a sniper rifle. New players will appreciate the sight, especially when it comes to above-average range. It’s excellent for defending and suppressing the enemy’s onslaught. And the ability to one-shot the enemy in the head makes it even more desirable than the M4A4 in the heat of the match.

Rapidity of fire: 666

Recoil: 19/26 (73%)

Price: $3,300

Kill reward: $300

6. MAC-10

MAC-10

A perfect SMG for the terrorists. Its key advantage is its low price, which allows you to get the armor in most cases. For mere pennies, you get good damage and an excellent rate of fire. The spread isn’t that high, which makes it a great mid-range weapon. It’s perfect for pushing forward in narrow corridors.

Rapidity of fire: 800

Recoil: 21/26 (80%)

Price: $1,050

Kill reward: $600

5. P250

P250

This is the optimal gun for early rounds. The P250 is also perfect as a second weapon when playing with an AWP. Snipers with this pistol have repeatedly shown their effectiveness in major competitions. The overall usefulness and good characteristics send the P250 to 5th place in the rating of the best weapon in CS2.

Rapidity of fire: 400

Recoil: 18/26 (69%)

Price: $300

Kill reward: $300

4. DESERT EAGLE

DESERT EAGLE

Desert Eagle can save a skilled player from the lousiest of situations. Once you get the hang of sending every shot from this gun exactly to the enemy’s head, you’ll be unstoppable. The huge damage of this pistol ignores helmets and sends the enemy team to respawn with the first shot. This weapon will also be extremely useful if you don’t have enough money and need to fix the situation somehow.

Rapidity of fire: 267

Recoil: 3/26 (12%)

Price: $700

Kill reward: $300

3.  M4A1-S

M4A1-S

An excellent assault rifle for Counter-Terrorists. It’s one of the best guns in CS2 due to its exceptional features and low cost. By the way, don’t forget to attach the muffler while using this rifle to hide your position and slightly increase accuracy. One of the most popular weapons in the game in general and a well-deserved third place.

Rapidity of fire: 600

Recoil: 19/26 (73%)

Price: $2,900

Kill reward: $300

2. AWP

AWP

The main feature of AWP is a guaranteed one-shot to any part of the body except the leg, but if the opponent is even a little bit damaged by your teammate, he is definitely dead. In the hands of a true master, AWP is an incredibly formidable weapon. However, the low rate of fire can cause trouble if there is more than one opponent, and that's why it took second place in our list of recommended weapons in CS2.

Rapidity of fire: 41

Recoil: 1/26 (3%)

Price: $4,750

Kill reward: $100

1. AK-47

AK-47

With the CS2 crosshair maker, players can choose the color and design of their aim reticle to fit their preferences.

When it comes to the best weapon in Counter-Strike, there can be no second thoughts. AK-47 offers endless assault potential for its owner. What’s more, this gun is truly legendary and has been a trusted companion to a multitude of pro players in many Majors. The AK-47’s main trick is a guaranteed headshot kill, and the helmet can only be used by your opponent as a bowl for his own tears. Add to this a good spread and high armor penetration, and you get the best CS2 weapon.

Rapidity of fire: 600

Recoil: 18/26 (69%)

Price: $2,700

Kill reward: $300

CONCLUSION

So, we figured out what the best weapon in CS2 is, and this glorious title rightfully goes to AK-47. Many Majors were won precisely because of this powerful assault rifle and its advantages.

At the same time, don’t hesitate to use other top weapons in CS2 from this list. Always consider your current situation in the game and the enemy’s equipment to make the right choice and get the upper hand during the round.

If you aim to master the Desert Eagle, knowing how to use the Deagle in CS2 is crucial.
