Wattson was a nice addition to the Apex Legends roster. Her Perimeter Security fence and Interception Pylon gave players the chance to properly defend themselves from incoming projectiles and enemies. This proved very useful to players, allowing them to hold down a certain building or point of interest more efficiently. Wattson isn’t a starter legend, however, and she was added to the game during season 2. She doesn’t have as many skins as some of the other original characters do, but the ones she does have are awesome, and they were treated as equally as the rest. With all of that being said, today’s list will focus on the best Wattson skins Apex Legends has to offer.
Ace of Sparks
The Ace of Sparks skin for Wattson is not part of a specific Apex Legends Season Battle Pass or Event. It’s a legendary skin that can be crafted for 1200 Crafting Materials via the Legends menu in-game.
The Ace of Sparks skin stays true to Wattson’s original aesthetic, and just enhances the best parts about her default outfit. The color scheme works well with every aspect of this skin and how it was created. The goggles in particular are a nice touch, and the back piece works very well with the vibrant red jacket. It’s a very solid skin that can be crafted for only 1200 Crafting Materials - that’s a bargain in our book.
The Electric Royalty skin for Wattson was part of the claimable Prime Gaming loot for Twitch Prime subscribers in 2021. It was an exclusive Epic skin, and was only claimable through the aforementioned source from October 9th - November 18th, 2021.
It’s a damn shame for anyone who didn’t manage to snatch this skin whilst it was available a couple of months ago. It’s one of the most, if not most authentic Wattson skin out there. And that is because both the color scheme and design fit her original style perfectly. Given how Wattson is French, the purple color scheme and gold accents are more than fitting. Every Wattson main deserves this particular skin, and we hope it makes a return to the Apex Item Store.
The Cyber Security skin for Wattson is not part of a specific Apex Legends Season Battle Pass or Event. It’s a legendary skin that can be crafted for 1200 Crafting Materials, or could’ve been bought for 1800 Apex Coins in a bundle.
The Cyber Security skin is themed after everything related to cyber technology. The theme of the skin is based on Cybernetics, and the concept artists have once again managed to blow it out of the park with the details on this skin. Most legendary skins are either insanely rare, or are simply out of the item store rotation. Fortunately for you, the Cyber Security skin is available and can be accessed via the Legends menu.
The Strange Attractor skin for Wattson is not part of a specific Apex Legends Season Battle Pass or Event. It’s a legendary skin that can be crafted for 1200 Crafting Materials via the Legends menu in-game.
The Strange Attractor skin is a bit more unique when compared to Wattson’s usual skin designs. It’s a bit more futuristic in almost every regard, and adopts this sharp-edged style. The color scheme on the other hand works great with the aforementioned design. Wattson’s head is the most unusual addition in regards to this skin, but it’s also what makes it unique in the end.
The Ruby Joules skin for Wattson is not part of a specific Apex Legends Season Battle Pass or Event. It’s a legendary skin that can be crafted for 6500 Legend Tokens only if you have the “Strange Attractor” skin for Wattson.
The Ruby Joules skin is a very similar reskin of the “Strange Attractor” skin that was covered on this list beforehand. The reason why we put both skins on this list is that both have exquisite color schemes and designs. Sometimes it’s better to keep it clean, and Ruby Joule’s vibrant red ruby color is exactly that. We highly recommend picking up this skin if you’re looking for an objectively good Wattson skin.
The Rocket Scientist skin for Wattson was released as part of Apex Legends Season 8 Anniversary Collection Event in 2021. It’s a legendary skin that could’ve been crafted for 1200 Crafting Materials, or bought for 1800 Apex Coins.
Most, if not all of the skins released for the 2021 Anniversary Event look absolutely amazing, and bring a very elegant color scheme to the table. Putting aside the stunning color scheme, the design is equally stunning and is worthy of being featured in an anniversary event. Be on the lookout for this skin during the next anniversary event. The Rocket Scientist is also a recolor of the “Silver Age” skin.
The Chaos Conductor skin for Wattson was released as part of Apex Legends Season 8’s Chaos Theory Collection Event in 2021. It’s a legendary skin that could’ve been crafted for 2400 Crafting Materials, or bought for 1800 Apex Coins.
The Chaos Theory Event was Respawn Entertaiment’s attempt to introduce medievalesque type skins into Apex Legends. Wattson’s Chaos Conductor skin is one of those, and it’s safe to say that it looks medieval. The design of the outfit has Wattson’s default attributes, mixed in with ancient clothing and armor. We’re not sure when this skin will return to the Apex Item Store.
The Haute Drop skin for Wattson was released as part of Apex Legends Season 7’s Fight Night Collection Event in 2021. It’s a legendary skin that could’ve been crafted for 2400 Crafting Materials, or bought for 1800 (2150 if in a bundle) Apex Coins.
The Haute Drop skin leans toward a more modern theme when it comes to the design. The color scheme is nothing special, but the style that they went for here is the main selling point. It’s definitely a more alternative look, which makes it stand out even more. It was released among many other skins back in Season 7, so we’re not sure when it will return to the Apex Item Store.
The Warrior Empress
The Warrior Empress skin for Wattson was released as part of Apex Legends Season 2’s Iron Crown Event in 2019. It’s a legendary skin that could’ve been bought for 1800 Apex Coins.
Here comes another skin designed with an ancient theme in mind. The Warrior Empress dresses Wattson up in a full suit of what seems to be some sort of ancient Asian armor. There’s not much else to say here; the armor looks meticulously designed, and the colors complement it nicely. It did make a return during Season 9, but we’re not sure if it’ll make a reappearance anytime soon.
Wired for Speed
The Wired for Speed skin for Wattson was released as part of Apex Legends Season 6’s Aftermarket Collection Event in 2020.
The theme for this skin is obviously related to racing and everything that encompasses it. The design is fairly straightforward and offers a nice alternative design for racing fans that play Apex Legends. It did make a brief return to the Apex Item Store in 2021 where it appeared in a bundle. However, we haven’t seen it since.
The Winged Menace skin for Wattson was released as part of the Fight or Fright Event in 2019. It’s an Epic skin that could’ve been crafted for 800 Crafting Materials, or bought for 1000 Apex Coins.
The Winged Menace isn’t anything unique nor special, but the design is a far better rendition of the default Wattson skin. This, and the fact that it’s part of an event, made it very rare and popular amongst Wattson mains who were looking for a design that stays true to Wattson. The only way we’ll see the return of this skin is if Respawn Entertainment releases another bundle with it, but other than that the chances of it coming back are slim.
Wattson definitely has a large inventory of unique skins. But, her skins aren’t the only ones that deserve the spotlight, which is why we’ve created lists for top-tier skins of other legends. These are the top Caustic Apex skins, the top Revenant Apex skins, the top Fuse Apex skins, and finally, the top Mirage Apex skins. There are many more legends and skins to cover in Apex Legends, which is why it would be worth checking out our list of articles focused on showing you the best skins in all of Apex Legends.
Wattson might not be the most popular pick, but she’s definitely a crucial part of a squad’s defense. If you’re not already on Team Wattson, at least consider it the next time you’re booting up the game.
