The SSG 08 also known as the Scout, is the cheap alternative to CSGO’s legendary AWP sniper rifle. It’s an excellent option to contest long-range combat without breaking the bank. But enough about talking about the scout. Here are the top ten best skins for the SSG 08 in CSGO.
We recommend purchasing skins through SkinPort, where items commonly are discounted at fifteen to thirty percent of the Steam market price.
10. Turbo Peek
Introduced in the Operation Riptide Case, the Turbo Peek is a skin dedicated to fans of the retro style. The flashy neon colors make the weapon pop with color, and it’s a good choice for the price.
9. Dark Water
The Dark Water skin design was included in the first case released to CSGO and later included in several other old cases. Added in the eSports 2014 case, this SSG 08 is a solid pick if you are a fan of the classic old skins.
8. Death’s Head
Brought alongside Operation Hydra, the Death’s Head imitates the pattern of a particular hawk moth with a skull marking on its back. Interesting backstory and overall cool-looking skin.
7. Hand Brake
The Hand Brake has no flashy colors or crazy animals but had to be included in our top ten. The navy blue contrast with the white gives it a classy and vintage vibe. Ideal if you’re looking for something not over-the-top.
It’s difficult to find anything cooler than a fire-breathing dragon on a gun. The Dragonfire is the cheaper option of the only two covert skins for the scout, and for the value, the Dragonfire is an excellent addition to your loadout.
The Detour is a discrete and simple-looking weapon skin that’s been a fan favorite. Its minimalistic design and monochrome colors are perfect for a white or black loadout.
Released in late 2020 through Operation Broken Fang, the Parallax is a unique skin for CSGO. Its zebra-striped texture combined with a 3D red and blue effect resulted in an awesome skin. Luckily, the Parallax is a restricted rarity skin, making it very affordable.
3. Fever Dream
This Fever Dream is one of the cheapest scout skins, but don’t let it fool you. It has a colorful, bright graffiti pattern that looks cool even in battle-scarred condition.
If low price is a priority, the Abyss is, by far, the best option for you. Some Abyss patterns look stunning, and it’s worth browsing to ensure you have a cool pattern before purchasing one.
1. Blood in the Water
Mostly known for being the unwanted skin in legendary expensive trade-ups, the Blood in the Water is widely considered the best-looking scout in the game. This scout comes with a hefty price tag since it was released in the CSGO Weapon Case 2 as a covert rarity.
