CS2 Skins With Historical Context: SMG Edition

Ah yes, submachine guns: the little brother of the rifles. The weapon we use when we don't have enough to purchase a rifle, but we need something that is still useful for pushing the site, especially if we need to rush B Site with the infamous P90. Here are some fantastic skins with interesting historical context that might just make you stop a minute and think about the amazing history behind them!

MP9 | Hydra

The MP9 | Hydra, released in 2019 in the CS20 Case to celebrate 20 years of Counter-Strike, is a classified SMG skin that links us back to Operation Hydra back in 2017. In Greek and Roman mythology, the Lernaean Hydra, or as we know the Hydra is a serpentine water monster with nine heads which can vary but one of the heads is immortal The location where this beast stays is in the Lake of Lerna in the Argolid, which if you did not know is the site in which the myth of Danaïdes unfolds. The skin itself follows the same theme as the Operation Hydra logo, lime green, and the Hydra in a dark black matte finish. Instead of having 9 heads, the MP9 | Hydra has 4 heads and is extremely detailed with small scales covering the whole body. Best of all you can get this MP9 skin for as low as 3.44$ on BitSkins instead of paying $5.21 on the Steam market.

MP9 | Dark Age

Released in The Cobblestone Collection in 2014, the MP9 | Dark Age is a Mil-Spec SMG skin. The Dark Ages was a period associated with the Early Middle Ages or the entire Middle Ages. It is set in Western Europe after the fall of the great Western Roman Empire which was marked by economic intellectual but cultural decline. The skin itself keeps the same theme of dark and is only a few tones of black, dark, and light grey. The skin is covered in a typical pattern used during the Middle Ages, a similar pattern compared to mosaics used in Churches as religion was extremely important during this time stamp. It has stars, crosses, beads, and more to reflect the connection with art and religion during the Dark Ages. You can find great deals on this certain skin at BitSkins.

MP9 | Pandora’s Box

The Gods and Monsters Collection released in 2015, which has a lot of historical context, gave us the MP9 | Pandora's Box which is a Mil-Spec SMG skin. The Pandora's Box, a fictional artefact, is a gift from the gods to Pandora who was the first woman on Earth, the box itself contained all the evils of the world that would have been released if Pandora had opened the box, However on the other hand it also contained hope and destiny which also remained inside the box. The MP9 | Pandora's Box doesn't link to the actual box but has its playful and cartoony version of different monsters covering the full body, mag, and handle of the SMG. It could be said that each monster designed on the skin is the monster labeled as evil trapped in the box. If you are looking for a perfect blue MP9 skin well you are in luck because you can purchase the MP9 | Pandora’s Box on BitSkins for $95.99 which is 24% cheaper instead of paying $126.19 on Steam.

PP-Bizon | Judgement of Anubis

Being the only covert tier PP-Bizon as of today, the PP-Bizon | Judgement of Anubis was released in 2016 with the Chroma 3 Case. Anubis also known as Anpu, is an ancient Egyptian god of the dead, who is represented as a man with the head of a jackal. A jackal is a medium-sized canid native to Africa and Eurasia. It is believed that Anubis is the guardian of the cemetery and attends to protect all mummies in their tombs, he also oversees the ritual of embalming (which is a word for preparing a body to be wrapped or mummified) of the human bodies. The name of the skin "Judgement of Anubis" is also a reference to a Yu-Gi-Oh! The card which negates the activation of Spell Cards. The PP-Bizon | Judgement of Anubis is very detailed, as on the body we can see the head of Anubis with glowing green eyes. If you look at the skin, the eyes are giving off light to let people focus on the jackal's head more than the rest of the skin. The rest of the skin is a doodle-like line covering the whole skin with accents of gold, red, and blue which are the main colours Anubis is represented by. What makes the skin even better is the discount of up to 40% that you can get when buying a PP-Bizon | Judgement of Anubis on BitSkins.
