Although the skin has been around since the Glove Case was released in 2016, some players still fail to see through the green camouflage pattern to discover the irony of the skin. Painted on the body of this weapon is the ironic phrase: “make love, not war,” as well as other anti-war messages and symbols. Despite being almost 7 years old, this skin is still one of the cheapest M4A1-S skins.
