Pistols

Whenever you play a CS2 match, you are bound to use pistols. Especially since the first round and the one right after the switch are pistol rounds, making them an integral part of Counter-Strike. But if you want to look good while getting those on-taps, you’re at the right place. Here are our picks for the best pistol skins in Counter-Strike, primarily for the Dual Berettas, Tec-9, and P250.

Best Dual Berettas Skins in Counter Strike 2

Dual berettas best CS skins

While they aren’t the most powerful, they’re arguably the coolest-looking pistols in Counter-Strike. Here are some top skins for the Dual Berettas in Counter Strike Global Offensive 2.

Dual Berettas Emerald

  • Flavor Text: “This is what the great Sebastien Hennequet has been reduced to? A nagging school marm? What happened to you… – The Teacher and The Iconoclast Part 2.”
  • Added: November 18, 2019
  • Quality: Mil-Spec
  • Starting Price: $32.52
  • Case: The Canals Collection

If you want to make a statement and enter one of the eco rounds with a pistol skin, that’s the ultimate flex. Dual Berettas Emerald skin was added to the game in 2019, making it relatively new. 

The green emerald metallic body on the black base looks impressive, especially when paired with green gloves. Since the Minimal-Wear variants are going for a higher price than Factory-New, at least while writing this, we recommend going for the new versions. 

Dual Berettas Balance

  • Flavor Text: “A red rose has been painted on either grip over a black base and silver filigree.”
  • Added: November 18, 2019
  • Quality: Mil-Spec
  • Starting Price: $0.84
  • Case: Shattered Web Case

If green isn’t your style and you’re going for more of a classic look, then check out these bad boys. Like the previous skin, the Dual Berettas Balance was also added to the game in 2019, but we’ll let you decide which ones look better. 

Unlike the rest of the pistol skins on this list, the Berettas Balance has a classic art style, with a unique thorn-like pattern and roses for added flare. This skin is also cheap, with Factory-New variants going for just over $3.

Best P250 Skins

P250 CS Skin Models

While the USP S and the Five-SeveN are both great options for the CT side, it doesn’t hurt to save some money and get the P250, which is also a beast of a pistol. Check out these awesome skins for it.

P250 Apep’s Curse

  • Flavor Text: “In opposition of Ra.”
  • Added: April 25, 2023
  • Quality: Classified
  • Starting Price: $30
  • Case: Anubis Collection Package

One of the latest collections of weapon skins added to Counter-Strike is the Anubis Collection. Of all the skins within that collection, P250 Apep’s Curse is probably the most in line with the overall Egyptian theme. Its entire gold construction with Egyptian-style engravings and red and green accents looks exactly like what the Pharaohs would have kept in their collection if they had guns back then. 

While the Factory-New variants cost $122, the good thing about this particular weapon skin is that it doesn’t get any harsh scratches going up in float value. In other words, you can get a Battle-Scarred variant or the Field-Tested version for much cheaper, which would look almost as good.

P250 Asiimov

  • Flavor Text: “If you think I need a rifle to kill a man, you have no idea who you’re talking to… – Mikha Biton, Phoenix Sniper.”
  • Added: April 28, 2016
  • Quality: Classified
  • Starting Price: $1.58
  • Case: Chroma 3 Case

Looking for something on a budget that looks high-end? Then, you should definitely consider the P250 Asiimov. Loadouts with Asiimov skins for a primary weapon like the AK-47 or the AWP, for sure, should pick this as a sidekick. 

The white and black angular appearance painted with orange accents is one of the reasons that the Asiimov collection is among the favorites within the CS2 community. The sweet spot for this skin is the Minimal-Wear condition, which you can get for just under $20.

Best Tec 9 Skins

Finally, we have the Tec-9, which is practically an SMG for the T Side, considering its spamability. If you like using the Tec-9 in Counter-Strike, have a look at the following weapon skins.

Tec-9 Re-Entry

  • Flavor Text: “I hate being right all the time – Carmen Cocinero, Extraction Expert.”
  • Added: April 28, 2016
  • Quality: Restricted
  • Starting Price: $0.42
  • Case: Chroma 3 Case

Players who grew up watching Hot Wheels probably wanted all their toys to have flames. If so, the Re-Entry would be best for all Tec-9 fans playing Counter-Strike. Its black background with orange and yellow flames painted at the end of the barrel looks like something straight out of a muscle car factory.

The different shades of blue, starting with light blue at the front end of the barrel and then transitioning to a dark blue shade towards the back, really help the flames pop out. Plus, the yellow charging handle is also a nice touch. We recommend getting the factory new variants for this one, considering you only have to spend $1.5 on one.

Tec-9 Decimator

  • Flavor Text: “Available for 4 easy payments of $124.95!”
  • Added: November 19, 2019
  • Quality: Classified
  • Starting Price: $10
  • Case: Shattered Web Case

For the final one, a Classified skin from the Shattered Web collection grabs our attention. What makes the Tec-9 Decimator stand out are the vivid colors, particularly vibrant blue and shocking pink. All the angular shapes go well with the color scheme, too. 

To paint a better picture of its appearance, this Classified skin has a neo-disco theme to it. At first glance, one would assume it would go “pew pew” instead of “bang” when you shoot with it. All those looks are priced around $50 for the Factory-New variants, and we don’t recommend going for higher floats since the scratches become an eyesore on the shocking pink mag.
