The best Valorant skins released in 2021 so far include both original creations and redux versions of previous skins. The developers at Riot Games have made continuous efforts to add new content to Valorant, and weapon skins are no exception. Numerous weapon skin bundles have been released throughout Valorant's lifespan and can be unlocked by completing Battle Pass missions or by purchasing them from the in-game store.

Weapon skin bundles customize a specified assortment of weapons and are the primary way of showing off a player's personal style in Valorant. They come in different price tiers based on their availability and aesthetic appeal, with Exclusive skins being the most prestigious. Most Exclusive skins feature an Evolving design that changes the skin's appearance as the player advances to different tiers in the Battle Pass.
