The Glock-18 might just be an ordinary T-side starting pistol. However, that also means that you have to hold it as the secondary gun more than any other pistol.

CS2, the successor of fan-favorite tactical shooter Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, was fully released on September 27, 2023. The latest entry in the series features the best of the Source 2 engine and offers many updates. Though the game still carries over all the weapon skins from its predecessor,

Counter-Strike offers a variety of skins for every in-game weapon. These skins are a colorful dress-up for guns, allowing players to add a personal touch to their loadouts. Weapon skins were introduced in 2013 with the Arms Deal update. Since then, Valve has added a vast pool of skins to choose from.

The Glock-18 is the default terrorist pistol in CS2. It is a selective fire variant of the original Glock-17 produced by Glock Ges.m.b.H., from Austria. The Glock-18 in CS2 is based on the Glock pistol from Left 4 Dead 2. It can be used in single-fire or burst-fire mode using the selector switch.

Like every other weapon in CS2, the Glock-18 also has a lot of skins to choose from. Here, we will rank every Glock-18 skin currently available in CS2 to help you decide which one to go after.

Top 10 Best Glock-18 Skins in CS2

Here, we will list our top 10 Glock-18 skins in CS2, ranking from worst to best.

10. Moonrise

Moonrise features the calm scenery of a full moon in a purple night sky. The interesting part is that the position of the moon changes depending on the pattern. This makes the skin a unique one.  It was released as part of the Clutch Case.

9. Weasel

Weasel is an adorable-looking skin featuring a mischievous weasel. The skin has a brown theme with a weasel named ”bobby” printed on half of it. The face of the witty weasel can cheer you up in between rounds while inspecting the skin in-game. This is also the cheapest one on this list. Weasel was added as part of the Gamma 2 case.

However, if you adore the brown-themed composition Weasel offered, you can also take a look at Wasteland Rebel. The color scheme of Wasteland Rebel is pretty similar while featuring a post-apocalyptic theme.

8. Royal Legion

The Royal Legion boasts a neat but sophisticated design. The combination of brown at the bottom and black at the slider provides a pleasing contrast. The black slider part is also engraved with patterns of oak leaves and acorns. The skin is also on the budget side, which makes it a pretty decent starting choice. It was added to the Wildfire Collection.

7. Umbral Rabbit

The art of Umbral Rabbit depicts the story of Chinese culture. The central part of the skin is a pink rabbit taking a leap of faith before a full moon. The rabbit is surrounded by various pictures of Chinese temples, mountains, and pink flowers. The warm, muted color scheme makes the whole art a dream-like scenario. It was released as part of the Revolution Case.

3. Water Elemental

Water Elemental is a sharp-looking red skin. However, the main theme of the skin is an imaginatively painted creature made solely of water. The splash of blue water on the base of sharp red helps it stand out in-game. It was released as part of the Operation Breakout Weapon Case. Moreover, it is also one of the most used Glock-18 skins made in Counter-Strike.

2. Fade

Fade is one of the oldest skins added to the series. It was first introduced alongside The Arms Deal update. Only the slider part is painted with chromatic shades of purple, pink, and yellow, creating a faded look. The unique part of the skin is its gradient effect, which changes with the various patterns available. CS2’s updated lighting and rendering also make the translucent effect more visible.

The design has black and white as the dominant color scheme, with a hint of pink, magenta, and blue. This skin was first added as part of the Operation Broken Fang Case.
