SSG 08 || Dark Water
And now, to balance a bit the overload of color we showed with Fever Dream, we present to you Dark Water, an SSG 08 skin that is perfect for all lovers of the classic black CS2 skins. Interestingly, even though it was released a long time ago, back in 2014 as part of the eSports 2014 Summer Case, it’s still among the player favorites to this day, even after the transition to CS2. This seemingly simple black base layer decorated with an aquatic-stripe pattern featuring charcoal metallic paints, has proven to survive the test of time and is still a coveted item in many loadouts.

Introduced to the game in 2015 with the “Shadow Boxing” update, Big Iron is a staple of many equipment sets, both minimalist and colorful. It is an incredible and versatile item that can elevate your CS2 collection to a whole new level.

SSG 08 || Hand Brake
Now something for those looking for an elegant-looking item that may not stand out for its color or fussy design, but for its elegance. The handbrake has been available in Counter-Strike since 2018, when the Paris 2023 Inferno Souvenir Package arrived in the game. Its casing is covered with a blue and white checkerboard, making it stand out from other weapons in the game, though in a good way. If you’re looking for a collection piece different from all the others, this SSG 08 skin is for you.

SSG 08 || Dragonfire
Dragonfire is an SSG skin that has been available in Counter Strike for quite some time, as it has been introduced back in 2016 with the “Brothers In Arms” update. Nevertheless, its incredible design has made its popularity not only persist to this day, but also continue to grow. In fact, as trends may change around the world, one thing is for sure, dragons will always be fashionable, and apparently the designer “Puffin” foresaw this when designing this iconic weapon skin. Dragonfire may cost a little more than the other items on our list, but we guarantee it is worth the investment.

SSG 08 || Slashed
Just like the dragon pattern, animal prints also never go out of style, especially when it comes to Counter Strike maps. That’s why we think Slashed is a great addition to any CS2 equipment. This weapon is covered in a beautiful black base coat with an orange print that resembles the scratch marks of some wild animal. If you want to intimidate your enemies from the first moment you show up in a match, we guarantee that Slashed will be perfect for that. What’s more, this is the perfect time to invest in this finish, as its price is one of the lowest since it was introduced in 2014.

SSG 08 || Sea Calico
Last but not least we come to you with the now legendary skin that is Sea Calico. Unfortunately, the legend is mainly attributed to its hefty price, but that doesn’t change the fact that its a weapon finish that can’t be missing from our list. The piece first appeared in the game in 2018 with the “Operation Shattered Web” update. Today, it’s an item that only the most affluent collectors can afford, however, anyone who manages to add it to their collection can be sure of earning respect among the CS2 community. Sea Calico’s beautiful yellow floral pattern is sure to make you stand out from all other players.
