Prime Vandal

Prime Vandal – Best Valorant Skin

Released back in 2020, the Prime Vandal is still considered to be the best Vandal skin. The things that make it stand out are its design, VFX, and animations. The gold plating around the gun gives a premium feel to it and makes it stand out from the crowd. On top of that, the main reason everyone loves this skin is because of the firing sounds.

  • Bundle: The Prime Collection
  • Upgrades: Base, VFX, Animation, Finisher, and Variant
  • Variant: Orange, Blue, and Yellow
  • Original Cost: 1,775 VP

Reaver Vandal

The Reaver skins were initially released during the Valorant Beta but were later removed. They had a darker color but were pretty much the same in terms of looks. However, this variant has phenomenal reload and death animations. On top of that, the kill sound is satisfying to hear.

  • Bundle: The Reaver Collection
  • Upgrades: Base, VFX, Animation, Finisher, and Variant
  • Variant: Original, Black, Red, and White
  • Cost: 1,775 VP

Elderflame Vandal

Elderflame Vandal has a unique look to it. Unlike the simplistic and elegant Prime Vandal, this weapon stands out immediately due to its design. Its finisher, dragon animations, and VFXs are all top-notch. Whenever you reload, you will see the dragon breathing fire which is a good addition. Your initial thought would be to not have a flashy weapon but this one is too good to miss out.

  • Bundle: The elder flame Collection
  • Upgrades: Base, VFX, Animation, Finisher, and Variant

The A-Tier includes Origin Vandal, Glitchpop Vandal and Forsaken Vandal skins.

Origin Vandal

The Origin Vandal has one of our favorite kill effects in the game. It is extremely unique and always fun to look at. On top of that, the sound effects are sublime and the reload animation is quite decent. The only reason why it is ranked low is that the effects can be distracting. If you use this weapon for the first time, you will certainly be distracted by the kill effects.

  • Bundle: The Origin Collection
  • Upgrades: Base, VFX, Animation, Finisher, and Variant
  • Variant: Original, Green, Red, and White
  • Cost: 1,775 VP

Glitchpop Vandal

This is an interesting skin as it makes your gun stand out. The Glitchpop Vandal skin is vibrant and colorful. When compared to other Vandal skins, this one is quite different due to its bright colors. That’s not all though. The sound effects, VFX, and the Finisher are all amazing to look at.

  • Bundle: The Glitchpop 2.0 Collection
  • Upgrades: Base, VFX, Animation, Finisher, and Variant
  • Variant: Original, Blue, Red, and Gold
  • Original Cost: 1,775 VP

Forsaken Vandal

Forsaken Vandal Skin – Valorant

This skin is one of the latest of the bunch. The sound effects – especially the kill effects – are superb and satisfying to hear. If this is your first Vandal skin, you will love it. Otherwise, there are better options out there because the Reaver skin is considered to a better version of this.

  • Bundle: The forsaken Collection
  • Upgrades: Base, VFX, Animation, Finisher, and Variant
  • Variant: Original and Gold
  • Cost: 1,775 VP


The B-Tier includes Sakura Vandal and Silvanus Vandal skins.

Sakura Vandal

The Sakura Vandal looks great and has a nice finish to it. Being a fan of Japan and anime, this one is one of my favorites of all time when it comes to looks. However, the overall effects – sound and visual – aren’t that good, hence why it’s in the B-tier. However, it is good enough to be considered in the low A-tier as well.

  • Bundle: Sakura
  • Upgrades: Base
  • Variant: Original
  • Cost: 1,275 VP

Silvanus Vandal

Silvanus Vandal Skin in Valorant
Silvanus Vandal Skin – Valorant

Silvanus Vandal is a very elegant vandal skin without any VFX or animation but with a nice look. The skin has a nice animated ‘snowfall at night’ design which animates as you move with the weapon or look around.

  • Bundle: The Silvanus Collection
  • Upgrades: Base
  • Variant: Original
  • Cost: 1,275 VP


The C-Tier includes only the Prism II Vandal skin.

Prism II Vandal

A basic recolor of the standard Vandal, Prism II Vandal, looks pretty cool in metallic hot pink and is also the cheapest good-looking Vandal skin. It looks decent but the color scheme and everything are not for me. Though, thanks to its cheap price, it enjoys its place in C-tier.

Bundle: The Prism II Collection
Upgrades: Base
Variant: Original
Cost: 875 VP


The D-Tier includes only the Ruin Vandal skin.

Ruin Vandal

Ruin Vandal Skin – Valorant

This weapon looks really cool and the color scheme is also quite good. However, it doesn’t deliver what was expected of the Ruin skins so that’s why it sits in the D-tier. The overall effects of this gun aren’t that good either.

Bundle: The Ruin Collection
Upgrades: Base
Variant: Original
Cost: 1,000 VP
