The Best CS2 M4A4 Skins (Top 10)

The M4A4 is one of the primary Counter-Terrorist rifles. Though most players prefer the M4A1-S, some loyal fans still stick to the M4A4 for its larger magazine capacity. 

Over a decade, Valve has released some fantastic M4A4 weapon skins. In this article, we’ll go through the ten best CSGO M4A4 skins currently available in the game. 

M4A4 | Howl

It would be a crime not to give one of the most iconic skins in Counter-Strike in the first place. The M4A4 | Howl is one of the most expensive skins in the game, and the reasons are clear. The skin has been labeled as a Contraband item due to accusations of art theft. It caused a massive stir in the community, and the Howl can no longer be unboxed. 

Despite all the drama surrounding it, it is undeniable that the M4A4 | Howl resembles power and prestige in the hands of any Counter-Strike player. 

  • Flavor Text: – 
  • Release Date: May 1, 2014
  • Price Range: $3,700 – $6,399.99
  • Collection: Contraband (Removed from the Huntsman Collection)

M4A4 | Poseidon

The next weapon skin on the list comes from the eminent Gods and Monsters Collection. The M4A4 | Poseidon has been custom painted to depict a clash between the Greek God Poseidon and Pisces. 

The skin is appreciated for its striking and aesthetic design, and it’s no surprise that it will cost over a thousand dollars to get a Factory New version of the Poseidon. Despite the high prices, collectors would yearn to get their hands on this skin. 

  • Flavor Text: Three can keep a secret if two of them are dead
  • Release Date: May 26, 2015
  • Price Range: $843.00 – $1,236.80
  • Collection: The Gods and Monsters Collection

M4A4 | Coalition

The M4A4 | Coalition is a very underrated choice, so we’ve decided to spotlight it and rank it relatively high on the list. Hailing from the 2021 Train Collection, the Coalition features a golden M4A4 skin with interlocking triangles creating intricate patterns.

We don’t get too many skins featuring a combination of golden and black, but the M4A4 | Coalition has indeed pulled it off. The price difference between a Factory New version and a Minimal Wear one is almost five times, so we recommend getting the latter if you’re on a budget. 

  • Flavor Text: This alliance is temporary, but you’re making me reconsider…
  • Release Date: September 22, 2021
  • Price Range: $11.57 – $348.90
  • Collection: The 2021 Train Collection

M4A4 | The Emperor

Coming from the Prisma Collection as a Covert skin, the M4A4 | The Emperor has become a prominent choice for an M4A4 skin due to its sophisticated design and affordable price point. A Minimal Wear version of The Emperor costs only $34.41. 

The rifle has been custom-painted using an Emperor tarot card on top of a dark blue background. The Emperor was designed by talented community members who also made the AK-47 | The Empress skin. 

  • Flavor Text: Lead with your head, even if it means ignoring your heart
  • Release Date: March 14, 2019
  • Price Range: $5.55 – $119.49
  • Collection: The Prisma Collection

M4A4 | Asiimov

If you like old-school Counter-Strike skins, then the M4A4 | Asiimov is a no-brainer choice. This sci-fi-themed weapon skin is a classic skin that was released a decade ago, in 2013, as a part of the Winter Offensive Collection.

Even though the skin can only go up to Field-Tested condition, you can still find yourself with a scratchless M4A4 | Asiimov for under $200. The combination of white, orange, and black gives the Asiimov an eye-catching design. 

  • Flavor Text: Anyone can predict the future… a visionary shapes it
  • Release Date: December 18, 2013
  • Price Range: $68.50 – $186.38
  • Collection: The Winter Offensive Collection

M4A4 | Eye of Horus

The M4A4 | Eye of Horus skin is one of the newer additions to the M4A4 lineup, being introduced in 2023 as the Covert skin of the Anubis Collection. Following the theme of the map Anubis, this weapon skin is inspired by the Egyptian Falcon God, Horus.

Along with the depiction of the Egyptian God, the skin features a white base and golden accents, giving it a premium look. Overall, the skin is super sleek, but your wallet will not enjoy it since it costs nearly $1,000 to grab in Factory New. 

  • Flavor Text: Rise above the rest
  • Release Date: April 25, 2023
  • Price Range: $155.31 – $949.50
  • Collection: The Anubis Collection

M4A4 | Neo-Noir

We’ve featured a lot of skins with bright, attention-grabbing colors, so let’s switch it up a bit. The M4A4 | Neo-Noir follows a dystopian design of a blue-magenta woman over a grayscale background. She is carrying what seems to be a katana on her back. 

Despite being a Cover skin in the Clutch Collection, a low-float version of the M4A4 | Neo-Noir costs less than $50, as it sits on the $39 mark. The flavor text of the skin suggests there is a deeper story to the girl on the skin. 

  • Flavor Text: “She grabbed what she could and disappeared into a decaying dystopia”
  • Release Date: February 16, 2018
  • Price Range: $4.34 – $39.13
  • Collection: The Clutch Collection

M4A4 | Buzz Kill

If you’re a minimalistic guy and want something with a simple design, then the M4A4 | Buzz Kill is easily what you’ve been looking for. This M4A4 skin has been sleekly painted in yellow, with a few hues of green complementing the concept. 

There’s not much going on with the skin’s design, making it not too demanding on the eye. It is an immaculate skin, and is very affordable compared to the other mentions on this list, priced at $35 for a Factory New copy. 

  • Flavor Text: There’s one at every party
  • Release Date: November 29, 2016
  • Price Range: $7.21 – $35.25
  • Collection: The Glove Collection

M4A4 | Cyber Security

If you prefer to lighten up peoples’ day using a Counter-Strike skin, the M4A4 | Cyber Security is the way to go. The Cyber Security features a combination of vibrant colors, using diagonal bands of blue, red, and gold as the skin’s primary concept. 

This workshop submission also includes instances of Chinese writing. Overall, the Cyber Security is a very playful skin that strays away from serious, lore-based designs such as the Poseidon and Eye of Horus. 

  • Release Date: December 3, 2020
  • Price Range: $18.91 – $52.95
  • Collection: The Operation Broken Fang Collection

M4A4 | 龍王 (Dragon King)

To close the list, we have a staple Counter-Strike skin in the form of the M4A4 | 龍王 (Dragon King). This weapon skin was released in 2015 as a Classified skin in the Chroma Collection. It features a custom painting of a dragon in red and blue. 

The Dragon King is a trendy skin in the community, which is attributed to its affordable price. You only need to pull out $15 for a Minimal Wear version, which is more than enough for it to function as a reliable playskin. 

  • Flavor Text: A weapon worthy of The Monkey King himself – Booth, Arms Dealer
  • Release Date: January 8, 2015
  • Price Range: $6.98 – $31.02
  • Collection: The Chroma Collection
