10 Best Five-SeveN Skins in CS2

KeyDrop Team

Despite the impressive armor penetration, relatively high fire rate, and low recoil, the Five-SeveN is still pretty underrated—its bad CS:GO reputation has kind of stuck. The buff it received in CS2 brought it more attention, though, so looks like it’s time to get some awesome Five-SeveN skins and try it out! 

1. Hyper Beast

Price: $30–$107

Hyper Beast had to make this list, so we may as well look at it first. This custom-painted skin features a monster (with lots and lots of teeth) in bright colors, with a contrasting palette of greens and reds. In other words, it’s awesome. Have you noticed that the tongue of the monster covers the trigger, by the way? 

This skin was a Workshop Submission that made it into the game in 2017. If you like Hyper Beast, check out the illustrator responsible for the artwork, Brock Hofer, and get the other skins from the series:

2. Kami

Price: $1.10–$1.70

Kami features a design that resembles a manga page, which is why it also made it onto our list of the best CS2 anime and Japanese-inspired skins. The contrast between the off-white of the slide and the rail and the black of the grip looks pretty cool, and the manga designs are very detailed. All in all, a neat-looking and cheap skin that can be paired with the matching Galil AR | Kami ($3). 

The placement of the design on the gun depends on the pattern number, so the final look of the skin will vary. Some patterns result in symbols and images on the rear of the slide, below the rear sight—these range aaaall the way from adorable to NSFW, so we’ll let you look that up in your own time, eh? Unsurprisingly, the, uh, adults-only patterns reach the highest prices, even $600 and over, which is pretty insane for a skin with a market price of $1.

3. Violent Daimyo

Price: $0.15–$0.60

Originally named “Majestic Daimyo”, this skin is part of the Daimyo Collection created by The Honey Badger. A daimyo, in case you’re wondering, was a land-owning lord in feudal Japan, who had to answer to the Shogun. So this is another Japanese-inspired skin on this list (there’s one more coming later on, too!). 

The skin combines vivid purple and shades of gray and black with detailed patterns that cover every part of the gun. You’ll notice symbols and imagery reminiscent of samurai helmets and crossed katanas on the side of the gun, too.

4. Case Hardened

Price: $12–$25

Some are downright obsessed with case hardened skins, others don’t really get the appeal—either way, the Case Hardened Five-SeveN is definitely worth a look. It’s one of the more “serious” skins for this gun: for whatever reason, most Five-SeveN skins look kind of goofy and/or over-the-top, and Case Hardened is one of the few realistic finishes. 

As usual with this skin series, patterns with a lot of blue will get prices much higher than the market average (we’re talking hundreds, and even thousands, of dollars). If you’re interested in the details, read this Steam Community guide to Five-SeveN | Case Hardened “Blue Gems” and other rare patterns.

5. Retrobution

Price: $0.55–$3.20

From the colors to the pattern and overall feel, Retrobution is a clear throwback to retro design trends of the 60s and 70s. Fun fact: this skin was created by Coridium, who also designed the iconic Asiimov Collection and the Decimator skins, among others. Between the clean, interesting look of Retrobution and its price, there really is no reason not to get it right now!

6. Urban Hazard

Price: $1

Urban Hazard combines a gray-and-black camo pattern with a bright-red design on the slide of the gun. We have some questions about the logic behind combining camouflage with, uh, the brightest red possible, but let’s set those aside and just enjoy the view. Urban Hazard looks futuristic without crossing into sci-fi territory, making it a fairly universal choice for any loadout (and a great, reasonably priced addition to your collection of red CS2 skins).

7. Fowl Play

Price: $2–$8

It’s not just because of the chicken pun that this skin made the list… Although we’ll admit that is part of the reason. 

Even without the awesome name, this skin is a great choice for your Five-SeveN: the teal background contrasts really well with the white and black of the feathers. It’ll work well with any green- or blue-themed loadout, if you’re going for a single-color weapon set.

8. Fall Hazard

Price: $240–$455

Few Five-SeveN skins are as colorful as Fall Hazard—the color saturation and contrast make this skin truly stand out from the crowd. And who would’ve thought that construction site safety could make a good theme for a CS2 skin?! Once you get past the initial confusion of this design, you’ll notice smaller details like the falling stick figure on the grip and the tiny signs prohibiting the use of alcohol, drugs, and… weapons. OSHA would be proud. 

The Souvenir version of this skin, commemorating the BLAST.tv Paris 2023 CS:GO Championship, can often be a lot cheaper. You can find Steam listings for Souvenir Fall Hazards in Field-Tested condition for under $100.

9. Boost Protocol

Price: $1.50–$3.20

Futuristic and detailed, Boost Protocol features a robot-themed design, although you may not be able to fully appreciate that if you’re only looking at the side of the gun.

On the rear, below the sight, you’ll find a stylized image of a robot’s head (screenshot via the 3D Skin Viewer by CS.Money). Now, the image on the slide makes sense—it’s the same robot, but up-close. 

You can’t really do much better than Boost Protocol for a white loadout or a sci-fi themed weapon set.

10. Neon Kimono

Price: $250–$1150

Here’s the third Japanese-inspired skin on this list: Neon Kimono, drawing on the traditional patterns found on Japanese kimonos.

Speaking of patterns, the skin will look different depending on the pattern number, with varying color proportions: some seeds are mostly gray, while others will have a lot more green. The green ones are usually more sought-after and can be slightly more expensive, though it’s not a big price difference.
