Best Cheap Valorant Skins For You To Buy In 2024

Are you looking for some budget buys? Here are the best cheap Valorant skins you can purchase in 2024


Gamers, in general, are highly drawn toward purchasing in-game skins. While they're essentially pixels on a screen, this does not hinder a gamer’s enthusiasm in any way. Despite not affecting gameplay, these skins undeniably enhance the overall gaming experience and significantly elevate the enjoyment of playing.

Valorant skins typically come at a high price point, and the current trend shows a continual rise in their cost, gradually reducing the options for attractive yet affordable skins. Nevertheless, that is not to say there exists no appealing and budget-friendly options currently in the game. This article will spotlight the best cheap Valorant skins available.

Best Cheap Valorant Skins

In Valorant, skins are classified into five tiers, each reflecting different price ranges.

  1. Select- 875 VP (Gun), 1775 VP (Melee)
  2. Deluxe: 1275 VP (Gun), 2550 VP (Melee)
  3. Premium: 1775 VP (Gun), 3550 VP (Melee)
  4. Exclusive: Varies
  5. Ultra: Varies

For our consideration of cheap Valorant skins, we define them as those priced below 1275 VP for Guns and 1775 VP for melees. As a result, only the Select and Deluxe editions of weapons will be included in this list of the best cheap Valorant skins.

Infantry

  • Edition: Select
  • Available Skins: Ghost, Spectre, Guardian, Operator, Ares
  • Cost: 875 VP

The Infantry skin bundle was released in March 2021. In the realm of Valorant, where everything is flashy and futuristic, a minimalistic skin that gives off old-school vibes immediately catches the attention of many.

While all the skins in the bundle are quite good-looking, if we were to single out, our choices would be the Operator and the Ghost skin. Both skins look very similar to their real-life counterparts. One of this skin line's most significant selling points is how different it looks from the other skins in Valorant, making it an excellent value for the money.

  • Edition: Select
  • Available Skins: Classic, Guardian, Phantom, Marshal, Melee
  • Cost: 875 VP (Gun), 1775 VP (Melee)

While this bundle includes four gun skins, we dare say only the melee weapon is worth spending the money on. The selection is quite limited when it comes to more affordable knife skins in Valorant. Under the 2000 VP price range, there are only three choices: Smite, Luxe, and Reverie. Among these options, the Smite skin bundle is universally disliked. As for Luxe Knife, it has a decent design, but the default knife animation somewhat kills its appeal. That leaves us with the Reverie Sword.

Swords are always a very favored category of melee. The Reverie is basically a poor man’s Sovereign Sword. The fact that you can buy a melee sword for only 1775 VP makes it a good enough deal.

Wasteland

  • Edition: Deluxe
  • Available Skins: Shorty, Sheriff, Spectre, Vandal, Marshal
  • Cost: 1275 VP

Launched as one of the earliest Skin lines in Valorant, the Wasteland bundle did not take long to gain popularity. Embraced for its simplicity, similar to other affordable skins, this bundle became an instant favorite to the pros and casual players alike.

Among the collection, the Vandal and the Spectre stand out as the top picks in our view. The Vandal was massively popularized by none other than the famous streamer and ex-pro, Michael “shroud” Grzesiek, to the point that people started calling it the “shroud vandal.” All in all, if you are into junkyard/post-apocalyptic-themed weapons, Wasteland is the ideal choice.

Sakura Vandal can be a great respite from all the flashy skins with their customized finishers, animations, and variants. Although released as a bundle in August 2021, the Sakura collection was available in stores from the very first act. The bundle contains some of the cleanest and most aesthetic-looking skins that showcase exceptional artistry.

Although the collection has three more gun skins, the Vandal is the heavily favored one among the community. Along with the aesthetics, people’s fondness for cherry blossoms certainly plays a part in this bundle’s appeal. Additionally, many players desire the familiar sound and feel of the default Vandal every now and then. Therefore, if there's an option to use an artistic skin that offers the same sensation as the plain default Vandal, why wouldn't one choose it?

Minima

  • Edition: Deluxe
  • Available Skins: Sheriff, Spectre, Phantom, Operator, Ares
  • Cost: 1275 VP

Minima is hands down one of the best cheap Valorant skin bundles in Valorant. The Valorant community almost unanimously agrees on this. If you are someone who gets distracted by the VFX and the jagged edges of most skins, you will love this one, too.

No other bundles have as many skins that pros in the VCT events have frequently used. This collection takes the concept of minimalistic design to an extreme. It's remarkable how closely it resembles the default skins, yet subtle alterations in shape and design elevate it to a far superior option.

Regarding our recommendation from the five available skins, we would suggest the Phantom. It has seen frequent use by players in the community, maintaining its popularity even three years after its release. At a cost of only 1275 VP, you won't find a better Phantom on the market.
