Jealous of that dragon skin Vandal you’ve spied in other agents’ hands? Wondering what’s the deal with that freaky demon-faced green smoke-blowin’ skin? Or are you just a skin junkie whose dreams and waking thoughts never stop swirling around all those gorgeous skins in VALORANT? (hey, we’ve all been there!)

Here you’ll find things like…

  • All the need-to-know VALO skin basics.

VALO skins 101

VALORANT skins are in-game cosmetics that alter the appearance of your guns and melee weapons. There are at least 672 different skins in VALORANT right now, but Riot Games regularly releases patches that add new skins to the store.

These skins are considered one of the biggest attractions of VALORANT, right alongside the unique abilities of each agent. They give players a way to express their style, but they’re not just a pretty shell.

Skin upgrades

Some VALO skins are upgradable, changing the VFX, SFX, animations, and finishers each gun treats you to. To upgrade your weapon skins, you’ll need to spend Radianite Points (which you earn through Battle Pass challenges).

Between how upgraded a skin is, the limited-time availability of some rarer skins, and the pure skill it takes to grind enough to add some to your collection, skins in VALORANT are more than just aesthetic – they’re a status symbol.

Some skins = instant respect.

Unlocking VALORANT skins

You can unlock new skins in a few ways:

  • Buy them from the in-game store with VALORANT Points (VP).
  • Buy them from Agent Rewards with Kingdom Credits.
  • Earn them through Battle Pass challenges on the paid track.

You have to spend real-world money to get VP and to get onto the Battle Pass paid track. You earn Kingdom Credits through regular gameplay, but you can only buy a limited selection of gun skins with them.

You can’t buy just any skin in the store at any time though. VALORANT’s store rotates its stock every 24 hours, and you can only buy skins currently on sale.

Riot has a refund policy for skins, but there are some specific terms.

The store also features longer-lasting stock – skin bundles (see below).

Skin lines

When Riot releases new skin designs, you’ll often find those skins available for four to five different weapons. It’s pretty rare to find a design only for one weapon, but it does happen now and then.

You can buy these skin bundles cheaper than if you bought every skin in the bundle individually. As with individual skins though, you can only buy a bundle that’s currently on sale.

Skin tiers

Skins in VALORANT are ranked by a tier system. You can spot which tier a skin belongs to through its tier symbol.

Ultra Edition

  • Individual skin cost: 2475 VP (roughly $25)
  • Skin bundle cost: 9900 VP (roughly $100)

  • Skin bundle cost: 2930 – 3500 VP (between $30 and $35)

How to browse skins

Players browse skins in two ways: skins for a particular weapon, or a specific design.

Some want to see every skin VALORANT has to offer, others are on the lookout for specific Sheriff skins, Guardian skins, or Ghost skins. Others still come looking exclusively for VALO’s Oni skins or Infantry skins.

The choice is yours, and we’re here to make finding the skin need easier than fragging a lone AFK agent.

You’ll find every VALORANT skin line detailed in our comprehensive gun skins post, but we’ll give you a quick rundown of the fan favorites and their skins here too.

You’ll find our full content catalog super useful if you’re looking for a skin for a specific weapon, but here’s a list of the most popular weapons and all the skins you can get for each:

VALORANT Magepunk Vandal skins

Vandal skins

The Vandal is hands-down the most popular gun in VALORANT. There are currently 55 Vandal skins, not including the default skin. These skins include fan-favorite designs like Oni, Forsaken, Ion, and Elderflame (aka the dragon skin).

Melee skins

VALORANT has a mighty 85 knife skins to modify your melee experience. Some remain simple knives, but many skins transform the melee weapon into more exciting knife variants like the karambit and butterfly knife. You’ll even find the occasional sword, scythe, and hammer in these melee skins (plus one uniquely gorgeous katana – thank you Oni skins!)
