Since February 5, 2014, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive has allowed players to add fun stickers to their weapons. In this update, players gained the ability to attach stickers to any weapon or gun skin. You need to pick wisely, as most weapons could only hold four stickers at a time. Many players think that anime stickers make the best weapon additions in CSGO.
Any sticker on a weapon will remain on it even if the player traded it. This does not, however, apply to vanilla weapon skins, as they cannot be traded.
How to Obtain Stickers
Players can obtain stickers by opening a Sticker Capsule, purchasing stickers from the in-game shop, trading stickers with other players, and purchasing stickers via the Steam Market.
The stickers’ rarity is determined by their color as follows.
Stickers are classified into different variants, as seen in the table below.
|Standard gloss||The standard sticker is shiny but has no backing. It can be scraped off.|
|Paper-backed gloss||Similar to the glossy sticker but with a solid backing.|
|Holographic||This sticker has extra textures that form a holographic image.|
|Color-replace pattern/graffiti tags||Players can choose one of four colors.|
|Embossed foil/metal leaf stickers (Foil rarity)||Gold outlined/metallic foil outlined.|

The Popularity of Anime Stickers
It is understandable why anime stickers are so popular in CSGO. Despite having a manga aesthetic, they have a very uniform appearance that makes them ideal for collecting or placing on your best CSGO weapon skins. Unlike most other stickers, anime stickers often stand out as they are vibrant and playful. However, because there are so many stickers in CS: GO, finding the best anime sticker for you can be challenging.
The 6 Best Anime Stickers in CSGO
Most of the best anime stickers currently available in CSGO can be observed below.
6. T On Cat
T On Cat takes a different art style than most other anime stickers out there. While the rest tend to resemble the more familiar Japanese manga/anime art style, T On Cat takes a more Western, cartoonish style that would be at home in a newspaper comic. It represents a Terrorist riding on a huge cat in an adorable illustration. This CSGO anime sticker was added to the community market as part of the “Community Stickers Series 2” capsule. It goes for as low as less than $1 on the market.
It is an excellent addition if you prefer a more western anime art style than the rest on this list.
5. Kawaii T and Kawaii CT
As part of its forthcoming birthday celebrations, Valve launched an open community event called the “CSGO10 Sticker Contest” in March of this year. Since then, countless artists have submitted thousands of outstanding sticker ideas and concepts based on numerous subjects. None of the other submissions have achieved the same level of popularity as the two anime-styled stickers known as “CT Chan” and “T Chan.”
The “T Chan” sticker depicts a female anime-styled woman wielding a knife in each hand and a star in the center, representing the CS: GO attacking side insignia. The sticker recently hit the game with the name “Kawaii T.” It comes in a holographic form where the knives and the star have an iridescent sheen. Additionally, the cheeky line “How could you…Scraping me?” is revealed when the sticker is scratched.
The other anime-styled female character is shown on the “CT Chan” sticker, standing with her arms raised in the air. She has been depicted with wings, which in CS: GO stands for the defending side. This anime sticker also hit CSGO alongside her sister in a holographic form, which enhances her wings with a rainbow shimmer. Additionally, scratching the sticker reveals an alternative angle of the female image and the question, “Why are you scraping me?”

4. Water Gun
Water Gun is closer to natural human proportions than the other anime stickers in CSGO, which often use the chibi art style. The character on this sticker has a more sophisticated appearance than the characters on our list’s preceding stickers. She has white cat-ear headphones and an orange cap on. The name appears to have been inspired by the character’s enormous water pistol.
Although the water gun seems like a powerful rifle, its ammunition is stored in a harmless-looking water cask. It’s one of our favorite CS: GO stickers because of the water gun’s incongruity.

3. Kawaii Killer T
The sequel to the original Kawaii Killer is known as Kawaii Killer Terrorist. Kawaii Killer Terrorist is dressed in the default clothing for terrorist players in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. Terrorists are thus marked apart from a professional military or police force.
She has covered her neck with a bandana and is dressed in cargo pants and a top. She has dark blue eyes and blue hair. Similar to the original Kawaii Killer, this sticker clutches a weapon while making the peace sign. The terrorist sticker’s weapon resembles an AK-47, while the real one holds a weapon that is likely to be an M4A4 weapon skin (shown below).
2. Kawaii Killer CT – Runner-Up to the Top Anime Sticker in CS: GO
Kawaii Killer was the first sticker that inspired numerous imitators. A Kawaii Killer CT original sticker can currently be purchased for just over $1, which is a reasonable price. An anime girl with orange hair, blue eyes, and a purple outfit that resembles the default CT outfit can be seen on the sticker.
With her right hand, she makes the peace sign, while her left-hand holds a rifle. She resembles a special operations soldier, very fitting for this game!
Since it is arguably one of the most well-known and best CSGO anime stickers. Do not miss out on adding this amazing decoration to your collection!
1. Cheongsam – The Best of All CSGO Anime Stickers
Cheongsam costs slightly more than $1, and the price has remained relatively stable over the previous few months. The character in the sticker is dressed in a Cheongsam, a classic Chinese garment. A Cheongsam style robe is typically tailored to the user. This one barely covers the character’s legs. In one version, the character has golden eyes and blond ox horns styled in a bun cover. She is holding her pink AK-47, according to the hanzi script on the sticker’s heart. It comes in 2 variants: holo and the good ol’ glossy finish.
Making Your Own CSGO Anime Stickers
For CS GO, you may even make your own anime stickers. The Steam community will vote on your artwork if you wish to make a CS: GO sticker. The best Stickers (those that are appropriate for CS GO and are self-created or legal) will be selected by Valve and uploaded directly into Counterstrike. Use your imagination, and we may see your sticker in the next update!
