Glock-18 | Candy Apple

Glock-18 | Candy Apple FN
Glock-18 | Candy Apple FT

The best souvenir skins to buy are those closest to your heart, and that’s why we are starting with a legendary weapon from 2013 that all long-time players will easily recognize. Available in DreamHack 2013 and EMS One 2014 Souvenir Packages, Candy Apple is a timeless classic.  The gun’s minimalistic aesthetics make it popular even at the highest levels of play, with coldzera, kennyS, Happy, and GeT_RiGhT all using this skin.

Rarity: Mil-Spec Grade

Price: $0.17 (FT) — $0.44 (FN)

Souvenir: $351.72 (FT) — $1,067.57 (FN)

AUG | Sand Storm

AUG | Sand Storm FN
AUG | Sand Storm BS

This skin looks mesmerizing in any float, with next to no visible differences between FN and BS options. The newfound popularity of the desert-inspired design is likely due to the success of the Dune films, making lots of similarly-themed skins more valuable. Sand Storm appears in Counter-Strike 2 souvenir skins collections of legends like s1mple, VINI, and ZywOo. The item’s flavor text  is just as carefully crafted as the item itself: “There is beauty all around us, you just have to know where to look.”

Rarity: Restricted

Price: $58.67 (BS) — $58.10 (FN)

Souvenir: $2.31 (BS) — $4.95 (FN)

M4A1-S | Control Panel

M4A1-S | Control Panel FN
M4A1-S | Control Panel BS

Added to the game in 2018 as part of The 2018 Nuke Collection and now obtainable from several cases, this weapon combines a brutal look with a distinct arcade game vibe. Control Panel is occasionally used by the pro players Gratisfaction, kRYSTAL, and Shroud.

Rarity: Classified

Price: $3.64 (BS) — $41.50 (FN)

Souvenir: $35.85 (BS) — $828.74 (FN)

Desert Eagle | Hand Cannon

Desert Eagle | Hand Cannon FN
Desert Eagle | Hand Cannon BS

One of the more interesting souvenir skins in Counter-Strike 2, a Hand Cannon, is a Deagle seemingly made of heavily corroded brass. It was released alongside The Cobblestone Collection in 2014, and with such an advanced age it is little surprise that the gun looks pretty damaged. Still, it will easily draw eyes in any match, as proven by both the game’s Steam community and the pros s1mple, FalleN, Kjaerbye, and SnypeR. 

Rarity: Restricted

Price: $353.11 (BS) — $452.91 (FN)

Souvenir: $180.00 (BS) — $676.85 (FN)

SG 553 | Integrale

SG 553 | Integrale FN
SG 553 | Integrale BS

Accendete i motori! With such a flavor text (translating to “light up your engines”), this paragon of souvenir skins in CS2 was destined to end up in the hands of pro players, and is currently owned by daps, mou, and karrigan. Introduced as part of the 2018 Inferno Collection, this weapon mimics the design of an Italian racing car Lancia Delta Integrale, creating a standout piece with vibrant colors and sleek lines. SG 553’s popularity has made the skin quite pricey, so consider going for the higher wear.

Rarity: Classified

Price: $2.95 (BS) — $81.13 (FN)

Souvenir: $48.60 (BS) — $1,407.20 (FN)

AWP | Desert Hydra

AWP | Desert Hydra FN
AWP | Desert Hydra BS

Released in 2021, this beautiful rifle is available in the best souvenir package in CS2—Mirage. With Covert rarity, the drop chance is less than 1%, so prepare to spend some money if you want to get one. Furthermore, just as with the previous entry, AWP’s popularity adds a considerable sum to the final price of this item.  But if you take a good look at the skin’s incredible design, you’ll likely feel the need to buy it anyway, just as olofmeister, device, and coldzera did.

Rarity: Covert

Price: $1,283.63 (BS) — $2,261.00 (FN)

Souvenir: $1,199.00 (BS) — $2,933.55 (FN)

M4A1-S | Welcome to the Jungle

M4A1-S | Welcome to the Jungle FN
M4A1-S | Welcome to the Jungle BS

Released in 2020 as part of The Ancient Collection, Welcome to the Jungle draws inspiration from ancient Mesoamerican art. It features a gold pit viper surrounded by some stylized inscriptions set on a dusk-tinted jungle backdrop. Exotic designs seem to still get a lot of attention from CS2 fans, as you can find Welcome to the Jungle in inventories of professional players dev1ce, Snax, and kennyS.

Rarity: Covert

Price: $554.36 (BS) — $2,100.00 (FN)

Souvenir: $540.00 (BS) — $4,501.08 (FN)

Desert Eagle | Fennec Fox

Desert Eagle | Fennec Fox FN
Desert Eagle | Fennec Fox BS

This skin is part of the popular 2021 Mirage Collection, which is probably evident from its price. However, the design quality is such that the gun looks amazing in any float, making it far more affordable than it could have been. Professional players TaZ, freakazoid, and Rain all use their Fennec Deagles to great effect.

Rarity: Classified

Price: $250.00 (BS) — $346.01 (FN)

Souvenir: $118.27 (BS) — $399.00 (FN)

AWP | Dragon Lore

AWP | Dragon Lore FN
AWP | Dragon Lore BS

As the most expensive souvenir skins, Dragon Lore is far too pricey to be a truly popular choice. Nonetheless, it is extremely coveted by the fans who can afford it, being one of Counter-Strike’s most iconic designs. It can be found in inventories of f0rest, adreN, and mou. This weapon was released in 2014 in The Cobblestone Collection Case and was only available during the finals of major tournaments early in the game’s history. Now, it can only be obtained through trading or the secondary market, which makes this incredible AWP skin so prohibitively expensive.

Rarity: Covert

Price: $3,795.00 (BS) — $11,299.00 (FN)

Souvenir: $27,595.55 (BS) — $482,916.23 (MW)

M4A4 | Eye of Horus

M4A4 | Eye of Horus FN
M4A4 | Eye of Horus BS

The winner of our list of the best souvenir skins in CS2 pays homage to Horus, an ancient Egyptian deity of power and protection. Introduced in the 2023 Anubis Collection, this skin not only looks incredible but also radiates cool mysterious vibes. It is a great choice for any player who wants to add some royal flare to their loadout, and can also be found in the inventories of such legends as kennyS, s1mple, and boltz.

Rarity: Covert

Price: $106.00 (BS) — $579.99 (FN)

Souvenir: $236.26 (BS) — $2,246.22 (FN)
