Top 5 Phantom Valorant Skins in 2021

Phantom is the rifle we use in every single Valorant match; so why not make it more stylish?

Phantom is the primary weapon in Valorant. No wonder why; Phantom's functioning, fire rate and recoil pattern are similar to the most popular rifles in other FPS games, making it more convenient to use. Apart from that, it is simply effective in its own right. The community already talked about its effectiveness in the early days of Closed Beta, which you can see by looking at some of Shroud's tweets from that time. So, since this is the weapon we use most, why not make our frags more appealing with some new skins? 

Singularity Phantom Skin

The Singularity Phantom skin was added to Valorant on October 13, 2020, as a part of the Singularity Collection. It’s an upgradeable skin, and it comes in four variants — Default, Blue, Red, and Purple. You can purchase the Singularity Phantom skin for 2175 VPs in the Valorant Store.

Phantom Singularity Skin

Let's start this listing with a Singularity Phantom, with which you will send your opponents into the cosmic abyss. This one came out in the same Valorant patch as Act 3, Episode 1 of the Ignition Battle Pass, which is October 2020. For 2175 Valorant Points, you get a weapon skin with a galactic design and smooth animations. It’s one of the most worth upgrading skins in the game, as its VFX and finisher are genuinely out of this planet.

Spline Phantom Skin

The Spline Phantom skin was added to Valorant on September 1st, 2020, as a part of the Spline Collection. It’s an upgradeable skin, and it comes in four variants — Default, Green, Red, and Blue. You can purchase the Spline Phantom skin for 1775 VPs in the Valorant Store.

Phantom Spline Skin

Phantom Spline is one of many evolving skins in Valorant, although you cannot enhance it with any additional animations or VFX. Nevertheless, the last two levels make the Phantom one of the most beautiful weapons in the game. On Level 3 you get the red variant, which carries such a “bloody” vibe. However, if that’s not your thing, try leveling up to 4, where some skin parts look like they’re filled with amber.

Ion Phantom Skin

The Ion Phantom skin was added to Valorant on November 11th, 2020, as a part of the Ion Collection. It’s an upgradeable skin, but it only comes in one variant. You can purchase the Ion Phantom Skin for 1775 VPs in the Valorant Store.

The name consists of the same letters as Oni Phantom, but otherwise has absolutely nothing to do with it! Ion skin comes with a clean design and smooth animations that may make you think your rifle has become lighter. Just like Singularity Phantom, it gives an intergalactic feeling, so you can say that it is a kind of budget alternative to this skin (but it doesn’t mean that it is worse, it all depends on your taste).

Glitchpop 2.0 Phantom Skin

The Glitchpop 2.0 Phantom skin was added to Valorant on February 4th, 2021, as a part of the refreshed Glitchpop Collection. It’s an upgradeable skin, and it comes in four variants — Default, Blue, Red, and Gold. You can purchase the Glitchpop Phantom skin for 2175 VPs in the Valorant Store.

Phantom Glitchpop Skin

Glitchpop 2.0 seems to be quite candy-like at its first level — lots of stickers, ponies, rainbows, etc. However, with every level, this skin becomes more and more “serious,” especially when you look at the differences between the first level of the skin and the last one (7th). These black and gold colors make this skin look incredibly prestigious, and yes — it loses the candy climate, but that cyberpunk feel remains. Overall, if you like this type of design, consider buying the whole Glitchpop 2.0 skin bundle instead of the individual skin (you can save about 5k VPs). After all, every Valorant Point is money.

Prime 2.0 Phantom Skin

The Prime 2.0 Phantom skin was added to Valorant on March 2nd, 2021, as a part of the refreshed Prime Collection. It’s an upgradeable skin, and it comes in four variants — Default, Blue, Red, and Gold. You can purchase the Prime 2.0 Phantom skin for 2175 VPs in the Valorant Store.

Phantom Prime EP2 Skin

Almost every Valorant player remembers the Prime collection as the one “giving aimbot”…. and the revamped Prime skin line is no different. All the weapons in the Prime 2.0 skin collection (well, except maybe the Melee Weapon one) have a shooting animation that makes it easier to see how the bullets go — and some even believe that it helps with controlling recoil. We wouldn’t say that this skin will give you some extra skills you didn’t already have, but this Valorant skin definitely looks premium and possesses one of the most superior VFX and animations in the game.

We expect that the lack of any Battle Pass exclusives, the famous Oni skin, or the Phantom from the Ruination Bundle or Elderflame Collection may be surprising to you. Unfortunately, if we are to pick only the top 5 cosmetics for this rifle, they are not even close to the ones we listed. Their design, sound effects, reload animation, and that sort of thing aren't that spectacular, although if this list was going to have 10 skins, we might have included them.
