Best Apex Legends Weapon Skins with Clean Iron Sights in 2022

In this article, we’ll guide you through the best skins with clean iron sights that Respawn has released so far in Apex Legends.

Apex Legends does not require players to spend money as it is a free-to-play game. But, the players can customize their weapon skins according to their taste and preference. They can collect these rare cosmetic items from loot boxes, battle pass, and events or buy the skins directly from the Apex store using real money.

Apex Legends offers a bunch of legends and weapon skins, charms, and more to its players. Among them, weapon and legend skins are the most exquisite and practical as they are easily visible in the game.

However, even among the Legendary weapon skins, some skins are more sought after than their alternatives. These skins are mostly preferred because of their clean iron sights in the game. They are also sometimes referred to as “pay to win” skins because they provide a significant advantage over regular iron sights.

Best Weapon skins with Clean Ironsights in Apex Legends

Here we’ll rank the 10 weapon skins that have the best iron sights in the game. Some weapon skins give you an absolute advantage over other skins with no exceptions. Consequently, these skins will be on the S-Tier of our list.

The A-Tier skins also have impressive iron sights but fall slightly short behind their S-Tier counterparts. Contrarily, some skins can only give you only a slight advantage over others, and you can get away without using these skins. Likewise, these variants will typically go to the B-Tier.

As with any other tier list, this one will also be highly subjective. This list will be ideal for newcomers and returning veterans looking for the best “pay to win” skins with clean iron sights in the game. In addition, we’ll rank this tier list from worst to best.

Best (S-Tier)Red Rocket, Totally Gnarly, Heat Sink, Northern Lights
Good (A-Tier)Zero Point, The Galvanizer, The Noble Cause
Average (B-Tier)Teal Zeal, Polished Perfection, Supersonic

Top 10 Pay To Win Skins With Clean Ironsights

Though there are tons of legendary weapon skins in Apex Legends, only a select number have clean iron sights. Some skins also have different variants and recolors. However, we’ll only highlight a single variant of those skins in the list.

10. Supersonic

Supersonic is a reactive battle pass skin, released in Season 6. Though almost every G7-Scout skin has a pretty similar ironsight, this one has subtle tweaks that improve visual clarity in-game. However, a G7-Scout is pretty useless without a 2,3,4X. So the iron sight will only be good if you’re fighting out of the drop.

Other alternatives and variants:

  • Hypersonic.

9. Polished Perfection

Prowler is one of the weapons that have the worst iron sight in the game. It is really hard to see through the iron sight without 1x HCOG. However, with Polished Perfection, you can get a better vision because it has two extended vertical metallic parts that let you focus more on your target.

Other alternatives and variants:

  • N/A

8. Teal Zeal

Teal Zeal is a Flatline skin that was released in the Lost Treasures Collection Event in Season 5. Though Flatline’s Season 4 reactive skins are second to none, Teal Zeal is the second-best option you could get for a Flatline.

Other alternatives and variants:

  • N/A

7. The Noble Cause

The Noble Cause is a legendary Peacekeeper skin that originally made its debut in the Iron Crown Event in Season 2. Even though it has a more bulky-looking iron sight, many players prefer it more than the Slimmer ones.

Other alternatives and variants:

  • N/A

6. The Galvanizer

Credit: EA

The Galvanizer is a default legendary Alternator skin. The Alternator already has a better stock iron sight. However, the Galvanizer iron sight is considerably better because it lets you focus on your enemy clearly.

Other alternatives and variants:

  • LED Rez
  • Palate Cleanser
  • The Illuminator
  • Ocean Spray

5. Zero Point

Zero Point R-99 skin has one of the best iron sights in the game. Arguably it has the best iron sight that is on per with the Totally Gnarly R-99 skin. However, the only downside is that it was only available with the Season 4 battle pass.

Other alternatives and variants:

  • N/A

4. Northern Lights

The default peacekeeper’s iron sight is very obstructive, and you can hardly aim with it without an optic. However, the Northern Lights Peacekeeper has a pretty neat iron sight that does not block your view and lets you aim flawlessly.

Other alternatives and variants:

  • The Lonestar
  • The Superstar
  • Old Blue

3. Heat Sink

Heat Sink is by far the best Flatline skin with clean iron sight in the game. Not only does it have a great iron sight, but the skin also looks stunning because it is a Season 4 reactive battle pass skin. However, Heat Sink is not easy to come by. Only a few people who got to complete the Season 4 battle pass have this skin. Nonetheless, a recent rumor says a recolor version of Heat Sink may be available in the future.

Other alternatives and variants:

  • Heavy Metal

2. Totally Gnarly

Credit: EA

Totally Gnarly is a must-have R-99 skin for Apex Legends players. We all know how awful the default R-99 iron sight is in the game. So, going for Totally Gnarly or a similar R-99 variant is a worthwhile investment. The Season 7 battle pass reactive R-99 skins also have equally good iron sights. However, they are not available in the game right now. If you got the hold of any of those, consider yourself lucky.

Other alternatives and variants:

  • Outlands Avalanche
  • The Kill Switch
  • The Unloader
  • Cutting Edge
  • Revolutionary

1. Red Rocket

Similar to the R-99, the Red Rocket is also a must-have weapon skin to have in Apex Legends. Wingman is an important firearm to master if you want to become good at Apex Legends. And, skins with good iron sights can take your Wingman mastery to the next level.

Other alternatives and variants:

  • The Death Ray
  • Merciless Wing
  • The Dismantler
  • The Sunburst
  • Brass Beast

How To Get These Skins?

Some skins in this article, such as the Totally Gnarly, Red Rocket, and Northern Star, are recolor variants of some default legendary skins. These skins come to store rotation every now and then. To acquire these skins, you need to first purchase the original version of the weapon skins from the Loadout tab in Apex Legends. After that, when recolors come to store rotation, you can get that by purchasing with Legend Tokens.

The default legendary weapon skins usually cost 1200 Crafting Materials or 1800 Apex Coins. The recolors usually cost 10500 or 6500 Legend Tokens. On the other hand, the Heat Sink and Zero Point are battle pass exclusive cosmetic items that don’t come to the store. But, Event-specific cosmetic items such as the Teal Zeal and The Noble Cause are often made available in Apex Store.
