Best VALORANT weapon skins
Check out the five best VALORANT weapon skins to see which of the sets reign supreme and if you have them in your collection.
While VALORANT skins have no return value like those in Counter-Strike, players still love adding new sets to their collection. This is because of their sleek look and flashy effects. The best VALORANT skins are those with variants and a finisher to show off when you get the final kill of a round.
Top 5 VALORANT weapon skins
Here are the five best VALORANT weapon skin sets. You'll want to grab a weapon from them if one appears in your shop. Or you might get lucky and find one in your Night.Market.
Note: This list is subjective.
The BlastX collection was a mighty 8,700 VALORANT points upon release. It coincided with Christmas 202, arriving on December 8. The skins resemble toy guns that shoot foam darts and it's melee weapon is a plastic toy knife.
If you upgrade to the finisher, it will wrap the enemy in a present box. BlastX is one of the most unique VALORANT skin lines. It takes elements of the real world and adds that bit of flair the FPS is known for with its skins.
Prime was the first true universal fan-favorite skin in VALORANT. Everyone asks for a drop when you're flexing your Prime Vandal. Other skins have definitely soaked up some of its spotlight, but it remains one of the best around.
It has one of the coolest finishers that changes colors depending on which variant you are using. A wolf appears and bites down on the head of the final enemy. Then it explodes and leaves a really nice effect on the screen for everyone to view before the next round kicks off.
The Recon collection is a set of military-inspired skins. It's uniqueness come from the random attachments added once upgraded. At Level 2, each Recon weapon randomly receives a Flash Light, Laser Sight, or Rail Cover.
Primary weapons, at Level 3, can also randomly receive a Finger Stop, Angled Foregrip, or Vertical Foregrip. You'll often find professional players using the Recon Phantom in the VCT. And for good reason. It's a smooth skin that does no wrong.
Radiant Entertainment System
The most expensive collection in VALORANT to date holds some of the best skins to date as well. Radiant Entertainment System is a callback to old school arcade titles. And you can play the games right through your weapons and melee by inspecting them.
RES is the only skin line to have three different skins in the collection. It starts with the blue Bazooka Badger skin, and upgrades allow you to unlock both the purple Dance Fever and orange K.nock O.ut!! skins. Each comes with its own animations, kill banner, and finishers for its respective game.
There's nothing that beats the original Reaver collection. It is hands down the best VALORANT skin set. With red, black, and white variants, each weapon in the Reaver line is beautifully designed and is everything a VALORANT player wants in a skin.
The fully upgraded firing noise is incomparable. The reload animation is as clean as it gets. And the finisher that sees the enemy dragged straight to hell is a sight to behold. The weapons in the Reaver set are what players hope for whenever their shop resets.
