10 Best CS2 Glock-18 Skins

KeyDrop Team

Looking to give your Glock-18 a new look for your next match? No problem: check out this list of the best CS2 Glock-18 skins, with options for all styles and budgets. Let’s get started!

1. Moonrise

Price: $0.30–$1.30

The favorite skin of many Glock-18 fans, Moonrise features a purple cityscape along the slide. Among skyscrapers, there’s a full moon and a bridge, with a starry sky as the background. 

The exact appearance of the skin depends on its pattern number, and the most sought-after patterns feature a star on the slide release button, ideally in the center, as in the image here. Only 36 out of 1000 seeds have the star, but even they aren’t particularly expensive—you can easily find “full center” star patterns for less than $10. No wonder Moonrise made our list of the best cheap CS2 skins

2. Water Elemental

Price: $3–$12

The deep red background and bright-blue water spirit featured in this skin look best in Factory New and Minimal Wear conditions—luckily, this skin is very affordable as well. This community-designed skin is part of the Elemental collection by FLaMmenWerFer, which also features the blue P2000 | Fire Elemental skin. Great choice for any red CS2 loadout

3. Ramese’s Reach

Price: $6–$17

Released in April 2023 with the Anubis Collection, Ramese’s Reach is a relatively new addition to the game. The custom-painted skin features an image of the Nile River on the slide and the pharaoh Ramses I on the grip. 

Other Ancient Egyptian symbols, like the pyramids and the hierogliphics visible on the magazine and underside of the barrel, complete the design. While reloading, you’ll also notice the same symbols along the top of the slide. It’s just a shame that the red eye is on the grip, where it won’t be visible in-game most of the time. Still, neat little skin for your Glock!

4. Fade

Price: $1300–$5000

Ah, Fade. Some dream of owning a Fade one day, others don’t get the appeal. Still, it would catch your eye if someone on your team had it equipped, wouldn’t it?

Like with any other Fade skin, prices depend largely on the pattern: the higher the Fade percentage, the bigger the price tag. Fade Glocks in the >95% range will show a relatively large amount of purple on the hammer end of the slide.

5. Nuclear Garden

Price: $2–$7.40

Toxic time! Here’s an interesting one—Nuclear Garden shows a series of skulls and assorted bones in what can only be described as radioactive green. The exact number and configuration of bones and skulls depends on the pattern number, but there aren’t any particularly rare or expensive ones. 

The radiation hazard symbols on the skulls’ foreheads are a cool addition. You’ll see the same skulls on AWP | Acheron and Galil AR | Cold Fusion—all three skins come from the same Nuke Collection. Oh, and if you use SMGs, check out MAC-10 | Nuclear Garden

6. Grinder

Price: $2

Grind your enemies into Dust (II) with this Glock skin! (Bad puns are why you’re here, right?)

Plot twist: although the spiral grinder is presumably the whole point of this design, the most desirable pattern features… no spiral. Grinders with mostly black, no-spiral patterns like this one (which has the seed number 593) sell for a little over the market price.

7. Reactor

Price: $3.70–$12

Nuclear hazard symbols again, this time sans the skulls. They’re painted over a bright-orange background along the full length of the slide. 

Pattern numbers influence the placement of the symbols, and in relatively rare cases, the black elements can form a shape that resembles teeth. The “teeth pattern” (943 in the image featured here) is slightly more expensive than market price.

8. Gamma Doppler

Price: $40–$70 ($150–$1500+ for Emerald)

The only non-knife in the Gamma Doppler family, the Glock is mercifully much, much cheaper than its knife counterparts. Float is the primary factor that affects the prices here—there aren’t any particularly expensive or popular Phases when it comes to the Glock.

Of course, the Gamma Doppler Emerald (pictured) is a different story—it’ll set you back several hundred dollars. Your next-best thing in terms of getting the most green in the mix is Phase 2 (80% green, 20% black, standard market price). And check out this post for other green CS2 skins!

9. Neo-Noir

Price: $7.50–$60

Who doesn’t know the Neo-Noirs? Here’s the Glock version, featuring an image of a woman in typical Neo-Noir colors: black, white, blue, and magenta.

10. Off World

Price: $0.10–$0.55

From the makers of the Neon Rider comes Off World, originally named Indigo. According to the skin’s creators, they set out to make a skin that would “get more awesome as it got worn out”, and I daresay they succeeded. Off World looks great in any wear condition, and its design is reminiscent of old-school sci-fi and space opera games. At under $1, what’s not to love?

By the way, you can get a matching P90 | Off World for under $1 if you’re digging this aesthetic.

So, that concludes our list of the best CS2 Glock-18 skins. Doesn’t time fly when you’re having fun? Hope you found a new favorite skin—good luck in those pistol rounds!
