The M4A4 is one of the most popular weapons in CS:GO and due to that, the skins for it come in all shapes, sizes, and colors, and there is truly something for everyone. As it is the case with all weapons, some of the M4A4 skins are rarer, and therefore more expensive than others, so in order to save you the trouble of digging through piles of M4A4 skins, we have compiled a list of what we think are some of the best of them.

About M4A4 Howl:
The M4A4 Howl is a contraband rifle that was added to the game in May 2014 during the Hunt Begins update and is no longer obtainable in the game by regular means such as dropping from a case or as a random drop. This is due to an incident regarding a dispute over the intellectual property of the design. This caused Valve to completely remove the skin from the game and label it as “contraband”. Nevertheless, the M4A4 skins that entered circulation prior to the incident were left in the game, and due to the Howl being unobtainable, the value of the skin has skyrocketed. Unfortunately, the precise value is unknown as the Howl skins never reach the open market, however, Steam estimates the value to be over $2000.
