How Does the AK-47 Fire Serpent Look?
There are a few important factors that contribute to the popularity and price of the AK-47 Fire Serpent. Its design is among these factors. The skin looks absolutely stunning, given that it's in Factory New or at least Minimal Wear condition. Even in the lower classes, it still looks better than the standard weapon without the Fire Serpent skin.
Regarding design patterns, the weapon is painted with a fire serpent motif. The main body of the rifle holds the serpent creature. It resembles a green fire serpent from Mayan mythology. Around the serpent's body, there are blue and white thunder clouds. The image doesn't spread all the way to the handguard and the buttstock, as these parts are simply made out of what appears to be high-quality wood with rich colors. The handle comes in just one color, dark brown. The only noticeable unaffected part is the rifle barrel.
Considering that you play CS:GO with a Factory New or at least Minimal Wear AK-47 Fire Serpent, you will be among the rarest players to own such a rifle skin. It's relatively rare to see them in a public match, as they are pretty expensive.
How Much Does the AK-47 Fire Serpent Cost?
One of the most significant factors that determine the price of these skins is their quality. Ideally, the Fire Serpent can cost anywhere from $300 up to $2500, and much more in more rare cases. Here is what you can expect if you want to either sell or buy AK-47 Fire Serpent skins.
Most CS:GO players who dabble with buying and selling skins will know that a Factory New skin is among the best type of skin you can own. These don't have any wear and are brand new. Having said that, they are worth the most because they simply look the best. With no wear whatsoever, the Fire Serpent motif looks stunning and as shiny as it ever will.
According to Steam and many other platforms that have anything to do with buying and selling skins, Minimal Wear is also a highly desirable skin quality. A Minimal Wear Fire Serpent AK-47 will look similar to a Factory New one. Some differences may be noticeable regarding shine. It won't be as shiny as a brand new one, but it will still have a lot of life left in it.
A covert weapon such as the AK-47 Fire Serpent can be found in all of these quality and price ranges. A filed-tested CS:GO skin is among the most popular. These types of skins are the closest you will get to a skin that looks relatively new and not be extremely costly to buy on Steam or any other market. When it comes to CS: GO's community, field-tested skins are always a good investment.
A well-worn Fire Serpent AK-47 is probably going to be a bit more difficult to sell. However, these also hold their price, as one of this quality and wear still goes for as high as $500-$600. Having said this, it's still worth listing your well-worn AK-47 Fire Serpent for sale. In fact, its price is surprisingly close to a field-tested one.
You're probably aware that a battle-scarred skin is one with the most wear out of all of these categories. Unlike the AK-47 Fire Serpent, which is a rare and covert skin, many other skins will be almost worthless in this condition. However, the battle-scarred version of this one is still worth a couple of hundred dollars. But, the damage is definitely noticeable. The magazine almost loses all of the paint, the Fire Serpent motif loses a bit of its color and shine, and it generally looks worse.
Stattrak AK-47 Fire Serpent
There are several more categories of this skin that you may be able to find them in. First of all, let's make clear what Stattrak actually is. This is an added feature to buying the skin. You can buy or sell the AK-47 Fire Serpent as Factory New, or Field-Tested, or Battle-Scarred, and the rest, but you can also get it with a Stattrak feature in all of the wear conditions as well.
The Stattrak feature tracks certain stats regarding the skin it's embedded in. For example, you can have an AK-47 Fire Serpent that tracks Confirmed Kills. Lots of items like this one can use Statrak to track different statistics. It's important to know that a Statrak Fire Serpent will cost more than a regular one.
We can't deny that this skin is among the most gorgeous and coolest-looking ones CS:GO has to offer. It's also one of the rarest ones as well, as it is hardly seen in your average CS: GO match. Whatever it is that you plan on doing with this skin, you now know all you need regarding the Fire Serpent.
