One of the most popular machine guns in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, the M249 is a weapon available to both teams. It's renowned for its high damage rate, and it can kill any target with a headshot instantly, regardless of the armor. Furthermore, it has great penetration damage, making it an excellent weapon for suppressive fire.
Its drawbacks are strong recoil and low accuracy; heavy size, and very long reload time; and since it's one of the most expensive weapons in the game ($5200), so it is rarely used in competitive matches. In this article, we’ve made a list of the 10 best skins for this weapon so that picking one will be much less complicated.
