It is safe to say that 2023 might be the most impressive year of VALORANT thus far. From its esports to its in-game content, it didn't miss a beat. New maps, new Agents, and tweaks to help the game progress were constant, but we all know the mass of weapon skins added to VALORANT in 2023 are the most-talked about additions.

Follow along with for the five best weapon skin sets released in the first-person shooter in 2023.

Best VALORANT skins added to the game in 2023

Taking a look back on the best VALORANT skins in 2023, there are quite a few that could be included. But this writer picked out his favorites and will rank them for you. Here we go.

5) Oni 2.0

We'll start with the second iteration of the Oni skinline. Oni 2.0 was perhaps one of the most anticipated VALORANT skins to release in 2023. Everyone was waiting for its arrival.

Not only did it come with a Vandal, but its melee is a Katana. That saw the VALORANT community as hype as they've ever been for a new set of weapon skins. Oni 2.0 is a good one.

4) Overdrive

The Overdrive bundle came a bit late in the year, but easily cemented itself as one of the best VALORANT skins of 2023. It's got a lightning-like feel to it with a variety of color variants that everyone can enjoy.

It also has some pretty great good accessories, with its Gun Buddy being the standout item from that category. Overdrive is definitely one of the flashiest collections we've gotten, not just this year, but overall in the game.

3) Imperium

There's only one word to describe the VALORANT Imperium bundle. And that is "regal." The sleek design is beautiful, no matter the color variant you choose. And its effects are pretty much perfect.

The sound it makes when you net a kill with it fully upgraded is downright intense. Then you've got arguably the best finisher in the game. Get the last kill in a round with an Imperium gun and a dragon pops out and strikes down at the enemy.

2) Champions 2023

Each year, we have the Champions bundle to look forward to. Riot Games puts together a smaller collection than others, but the design is top notch. As well, some of the proceeds from the bundle go to the teams that make it to the championship tournament.

The 2023 edition easily slots in as one of the best VALORANT skin sets of the last 365 days. While it only came with two weapons and three accessories, the Vandal and Kunai melee are incredible.

1) Radiant Entertainment System

The Radiant Entertainment System is hands down the most ambitious skin bundle ever released in VALORANT. It was also the most expensive at the time of its arrival. You get four weapons and melee, but it's really much more than that.

It ranks as the best VALORANT skin set in 2023 because of its upgrades. There are three designs for each weapon, all based on a different game that can be played if you inspect the gun. It also gives accessories for all three games with no additional purchase. It is stacked, and just plain cool
