And when it does happen, it's good to have some nice skin on hand. Well, that's why we've put together a list of the top 5 Valorant weapon skins for Guardian. Pick your favorite and beautify every single moment of your gameplay using this Valorant gun!
Infantry Guardian Skin
The Infantry Guardian skin was added to Valorant on March 18th, 2021, as a part of the Infantry Collection. It’s a non-upgradeable skin, and it only comes in one variant. You can purchase the Infantry Guardian skin for 875 VPs in the Valorant Store.
For starters, something from the budget Valorant skin collection. Infantry Guardian turns our weapon into an old-school hunting rifle. Ready to hunt some headshots? In our opinion, such a classic/woody design fits much better with Guardian than a default one. It would be so lovely if Riot would produce a Phantom skin with that design.
Ruination Guardian Skin
The Ruination Guardian skin was added to Valorant on July 21st, 2020, as a part of the Ruination Collection. It’s an upgradeable skin, and it comes in four variants — Default, Purple, Orange, and Green. You can purchase the Ruination Guardian skin for 2175 VPs in the Valorant Store.
Next up, a skin straight from the Shadow Isles. Literally, because the Ruination Bundle came out during a Sentinels of Light event. It has four different variants and looks stunning in all of them, and the orange variant makes us dream of the Elderflame Guardian. Shortly after this one came out, even Shroud said that weapons from the Ruination skin line look too cool not to play them, even if they are a bit distracting.
Oni Guardian Skin
The Oni Guardian skin was added to Valorant on July 21st, 2020, as a part of the Oni Collection. It’s an upgradeable skin, and it comes in four variants — Default, Black, Green, and White. You can purchase the Oni Guardian skin for 1775 VPs in the Valorant Store.
Oni weapon skin bundle is mainly known for Oni Phantom and a Melee Weapon skin, but you have to admit that the Guardian skin looks premium too. That said, maybe it’s worth buying the entire skin collection instead of an individual skin? Think about it when such an offer appears in the Valorant store, as these are really one of the better evolving skins in the game.
Sovereign Guardian Skin
The Sovereign Guardian skin was added to Valorant on June 13th, 2020, as a part of the Sovereign Collection. It’s an upgradeable skin, and it comes in four variants — Default, Gold, Silver, and Purple. You can purchase the Sovereign Guardian skin for 1775 VPs in the Valorant Store.
We thought a bit about whether Sovereign was better than Prime skin, but we figured it wasn't even close. Both have that royal vibe, but you can feel it much more here. Plus, Sovereign Guardian is much more versatile because each variant has a different style, so everyone should find something for themselves. The downside is that it costs the same as 1775 Valorant Points, and it is tough to decide which of the two is better.
Reaver Guardian Skin
The Reaver Guardian skin was added to Valorant on November 3rd, 2020, as a part of the Reaver Collection. It’s an upgradeable skin, and it comes in three variants — Default, Red, and Black. You can purchase the Reaver Guardian skin for 1775 VPs in the Valorant Store.
Finally, Guardian from the Reaver Bundle; a collection that is known for its Vandal skin and some of the best upgradeable skins in the game. That extra steel on the skin makes the Guardian look even heavier and a “more serious” weapon. When you look at all the VFX and animations, the only thing that comes to mind is “shut up and take my Radianite Points.” Moreover, consider using it with a Forsaken Gun Buddy — it fits perfectly.
Unfortunately, we didn't include any Battle Pass, free, or new skins in this listing. We consider all the skins in this listing worth every single Valorant Point, so we wish you to have these in your shop. And when they do, reach for your favorite and spice up your Guardian frags!
