The M4A1 Basilisk is a classic skin for the gun and has been around for a while. Despite that, it remains one of the nicest-looking M4A1S skins on this list, and for under $5 you really can’t go wrong with a skin that depicts a fierce Basilisk on the body of the weapon. Definitely a steal and one of the best M4A1 skins, regardless of price.

The M4A1-S Leaded Glass is an explosion of color that really looks like a CS:GO skin that ought to be more expensive than it is. You can get the minimal wear version of this skin for under $5! Its factory new cousin is a fair bit more pricey, but this skin does the job just fine and is very affordable.
5. M4A1-S Guardian – Factory New
You know something is a good skin when it includes a logo from inside the actual game. The M4A1S Guardian skin does just that, and has the CT logo on it’s mag. For that reason alone it makes this list, but it’s also a very nice skin that uses its simplicity to look elegant in any arsenal, and is a skin for the CT not looking to spend much money on skins.
Section 2: Good, cheap M4A1S skins under $30
We’ve covered the top 5 M4A1 skins under $5 in CS:GO, so from now these ones will be a little bit more pricey. We’re sure there was a good cheap M4A1-S skin for you in that list, but if you have a bit of a higher budget than 5 bucks then you’ll want to see these next skins and their prices, that’s for sure.
6. M4A1-S Cyrex – Factory New
Probably the first skin I remember wanting was the M4A1-S Cyrex. It used to be the de facto best M4A1S skin in CS:GO before a flood of competitors game in. This and the AK Vulcan were kings of their time. Still, though, it is a stunning weapon that has a really nice color combination of red, white and black. It’s also a red skin, which for its affordable nature and factory new condition make it a really wise purchase.
7. M4A1-S Decimator – Factory New
How on earth is this M4A1 skin under $10? In factory new no less! The weakness of the M4A1-S in its current state has definitely led to some really great deals on gorgeous looking skins for really good prices.
8. M4A1-S Hyper Beast – Minimal Wear
The Hyper Beast was a game-changer in M4A1-S skins and drove people away from the Cyrex when it was released. It depicts an awesome image of a colorful, snarling beast on a background of blue. It’s undoubtedly a gorgeous weapon skin and one of the best the M4A1 has. The fact that the minima; wear version is under $10 is incredible and shows how many great red skins for the M4A1S you can get on a budget.
9. M4A1-S Golden Coil – Minimal Wear
We can’t mention how mad it is that this is under $10 again, but it truly is. The Golden Coil uses a color you don’t usually see in affordable CS:GO skins, which is gold. As if that wasn’t good enough for this cheap M4A1-S skin, it has awesome ornate patterns of coils that really make it look smart. This is easily one of the best M4A1 skins available cheap, and its price has to impress you.
10. M4A1-S Chantico’s Fire – Minimal Wear
One of our personal favorites in terms of M4A1S skins is the Chantico’s Fire. It’s still an affordable skin but is easily one of the best-looking skins you can get for this gun. The vibrant color scheme catches eyes and is a great addition to an inventory, especially with its cheap price. This one is only worth buying in minimal wear, as its Factory New version is over $35.
11. M4A1-S Mecha Industries – Factory New
Looking straight out of a factory – and in Factory New condition – is the Mecha Industries silenced M4. It fuses the white and black together to look the business and a skin you’d only want in a good condition like FN. It’s a very popular M4A1-S skin and is still at a reasonable price for most people looking for lists of the best M4A1S skins.
12. M4A1-S Icarus Fell – Factory New
A simply sublime skin that looks both ethereal as well as coming straight out of the ocean with its deep and murky blues. This M4A1-S skin is a testament of how using different shades of a color can make one of the best-looking skins in CS:GO. Nothing else to say.
Section 3: The best looking M4A1S skins in CS:GO at any price
We’re now in the business end of the best M4A1-S skins in CS:GO. These aren’t red bottoms or bloody shoes, but these is definitely expensive. Check them out.
13. M4A1-S Hot Rod – Factory New
The Hot Rod is an awesome silenced M4 skin because of how great it looks on high settings. The image doesn’t do it justice; usually the Hot Rod will be a glistening red color that really is a unique skin in Counter-Strike as a video game.
14. M4A1-S Master Piece – Factory New
A favorite skin amongst a lot of players and one that’s popular with pros who still use this gun is the M4A1 Master Piece. It sports a graffiti design on the body of the gun, as well as a cool blue print on the rest of it.
15. M4A1-S Knight – Factory New
The price of the M4A1-S Knight comes from it being one of the skins from the Cobblestone collection, meaning it can be traded up for a Dragon Lore, if you happen to have 10 of them lying around. Now obviously most people don’t have that, but we had to add this skin as it’s like a mini dragon lore through the prestige that it carries and isn’t sore on the eyes either.
