​30 of The Best Free 3D Models on CGTrader

You can't buy everything - and sometimes, you don't even need to! The great artists in our community often upload free models to give people a taste of their skill. We wanted to make a list of the best free models on CGTrader and we had a hard time doing it - you have uploaded so many free models! But we huffed and we puffed and we made this list of 30 best free 3D models!

1. AKM - Model and Textures by chamferzone

No modern day FPS game can do without an AK-type weapon. And this AKM low poly gun rivals Call of Duty and Crysis in detail, as well as texture, while being totally free!

3. MK2 Grenade - Models and Textures by chamferzone

The humble classical MK2 Grenade, also called “the pineapple”. Only the Stielhandgranate comes close to it’s iconic status. You wouldn’t want your FPS game to have unpopular grenades, would you?
