Quiet gun, loud looks.

In VALORANT, one of the most important weapons in the game is the Ghost. Even though it might not be the hardest hitter, it is one of the most cost-efficient weapons available, especially when trying to save some credits after a lost round in a game.

The pistol is relatively accurate at range, and can usually two-tap opponents if players hit their headshots. Its consistency makes it a great complimentary weapon alongside a rifle, or another way to surprise enemies when your economy is struggling. The suppressor also acts as a way to silence the gunshots, making it great for sneaking up with a flank attack.

It is also important that you look just as good as you play in VALORANT, and the Ghost has a good selection of skins for players to peruse. There are, however, only a few skins that stand out among the rest of the pack.

Here are the best Ghost skins in VALORANT.

Gaia’s Vengeance

This beautifully-animated skin brings nature to the battlefield by wrapping the Ghost in organic-looking vines, while the gun itself is made of glowing crystals and wood with intricate designs carved into the bark.

When inspected, the weapon shimmers and hums with energy, and when the gun is first taken out and cocked, vines materialize around its barrel. It’s clean enough to not be distracting to the player, but still flashy enough to be an attention-getter while grabbing some frags on the battlefield.

Magepunk

Featured as a marriage between the classic steampunk aesthetic and magical elements, the Magepunk skin line brings a unique firing animation where the back of the gun pops up when you pull the trigger. Lights flicker in the gun while you idle, and when you inspect the weapon, it crackles and pops with electric energy.

If you want a weapon that will remind you a bit of games like Bioshock, this will bring you to times when science was king of the world.

Recon

Clean and simple, the Recon skin will be familiar to many players who have frequented other first-person shooters like Call of Duty. In fact, it is very reminiscent of the USP-S in CS:GO, which is one of the most iconic weapons in the game.

The unique aspect of this skin is that the Ghost will have a different look every time you buy it from the shop. From a laser sight to a flashlight, the pistol will pick a random attachment to appear on the gun. With nothing else to distract you from the fight, the Recon skin is a perfect skin for anyone looking for a more modest look.

Ruination

The Ruination skin line connects the world of VALORANT with the League of Legends universe by bringing skins inspired by the aesthetics of Runeterra’s favorite scorned leader, Viego the Ruined King. The Ghost is shrouded with an eerie, bluish glow, while ghastly smoke emanates from within.

When a player first takes out the gun, it comes out of the shadows, as ghost-like sound effects echo. The skin’s firing sound is really satisfying, and the final kill animation causes their enemy to become possessed by the Black Mist. If you’re trying to join the forces of evil, pick up a Ruination Ghost to show your support for Shadow Isles.
