Ballin' on a budget: Top five MP5-SD skins for $15 or less ⚡⚡⚡ Esports news, analytics, reviews on WePlay! The latest news on WePlay!

Want to frag out in style but don't want to break the bank? No worries! We can get you looking good on the CT side for $15 or less. The MP5-SD is a popular pick for eco rounds in CS:GO. It isn't the cheapest next to the MP9, but it allows the CTs to defend a bomb site from the Ts and houses a quick fire rate, and is a big improvement over the MP9. Its low price, but high damage output makes it a perfect pick up when you or your team's economy is less than ideal, but you need something more than a USP-S to defend a bomb site. Let's dive in so we can get you ecoing in style.

Number five

Coming in at fifth place for the MP5-SD is the Acid Wash. The MP5-SD Acid Wash is a greyish-blue and brown skin with a splatter type design. The aesthetic is that the splatter is acid that has eaten away at the base color, resulting in that bronzey type color you see. The MP5-SD Acid Wash happens to be the MP5-SD skin I use, as I pulled a StatTrak not too long ago. The MP5-SD Acid Wash will only run you about $0.20, or a StatTrak will run you about $1. The MP5-SD Acid Wash can also be pulled from a Shattered Web Case.


Number four

Earning the number four spot for today's top five is the MP5-SD Desert Strike. The MP5-SD Desert Strike sports a khaki and charcoal color scheme with different labelings on the magazine, barrel, and trigger area. The MP5-SD Desert Strike fits its name so well, and the CT side, while also being a pretty cool looking skin. The MP5-SD Desert Strike can be yours for about $0.25, or a StatTrak will run you about $1. The MP5-SD Desert Strike can be pulled out of the newest CS:GO case, the Prisma 2.


Number three

Taking the bronze medal for MP5-SD is the Gauss. The MP5-SD Gauss replicates a Gauss cannon in design with stamped steel. The magazine, grip, and buttstock are a dark brown color, while the rest of the weapon is a charcoal type color. The Gauss design could pair well with other futuristic type skins, in which a number can be obtained for $15 or less. The MP5-SD Gauss can be all yours for about $0.50, and a StatTrak will run you about $1. The MP5-SD Gauss can also be pulled from a Prisma Case.


Number two

Getting second place for today's top five is the MP5-SD Agent. The MP5-SD Agent captures the CT side aesthetic perfectly with a navy blue body, unpainted attachments, and a yellow trim with the FBI and CT symbol towards the stock of the weapon. The MP5-SD Agent, even more so than the Desert Strike, embodies the CT aesthetic and is a must-have if you use the FBI SWAT Operator. The MP5-SD Agent will only set you back about $1, while a StatTrak will run you about $2. The MP5-SD Agent can also be pulled out of a CS20 Case.


Number one

Taking home the trophy for the MP5-SD is the Phosphor. The MP5-SD Phosphor is a primarily blue bodied skin with turquoise, green, and pink neon paint poured over the top. The MP5-SD Phospor will pair well with other neon type skins like the AWP Fever Dream, which can also be obtained for $15 or less. The MP5-SD Phosphor will set you back about $4, and a StatTrak runs about $7. The MP5-SD Phosphor can also be pulled out of a Danger Zone Case.
