Here, we will highlight the 10 best Caustic skins that Respawn has released in Apex Legends so far.

Apex Legends was launched back in 2019, and following its release, it quickly cemented itself as the best BR shooter at that time, mainly due to its diverse roster of Legends, all featuring unique abilities. Among all the first-released Legends, Caustic stood out from the crowd. While most Legends had abilities that were meant to push toward your enemies, Caustic’s whole kit was centered around his toxic Nox gas to bunker down an area. This difference in playstyle garnered a dedicated fan base for Caustic mains.

Respawn has catered to this specific group of fans, as Caustic has a wide selection of interesting and amazing skins. In this article, we will be talking about our best picks from all the skins.

Our 10 Favorite Caustic Skin Picks

As we mentioned before, Caustic received quite a lot of unique skins over the years. From scary-looking clowns to the holiday-inspired Santa Claus, Caustic has it all. Over the years, Respawn has released a lot of skins with different themes and aesthetics. Our list will be a mix of the themes, the more light-hearted cosmetics, and some of the more personalized ones as well.

10. Third Emperor

Release DateJune 14, 2020
Available viaGrand Soirée Arcade Event

The third Emperor is one of the earliest legendary Caustic skin to be added to the game. It was added a bit later than the other four basic legendary skins. It features a dark purple theme. This skin will remind players of Scorpio or Sub-zero from the Mortal Combat franchise.

9. The Trophy Hunter

Available viaRecolor of Blackheart
AlternativesBlack Heart, Philosopher’s Stone, Waste Management

The Trophy Hunter is a recolor of the original Blackheart Caustic skin. This one features a very contrasty-looking black-and-white colorway that makes it really stand out from the other skins. Players who love minimalistic skins will most likely prefer this one over all the other flashy-looking skins for Caustic.

8. The Last Laugh

Release DateOctober 15, 2019
First Available viaFight or Fright 2019 Collection Event
AlternativesSweet Dreams

The Last Laugh Caustic Skin was first released back in 2019 with the now fan-favorite Fight or Fright collection event. As it was a holiday-themed spooky event, the cosmetic team at Respawn went all out and gave Caustic a truly terrifying clown makeover. Later down the line, Respawn even released a dark recolor of this fan-favorite skin called “Sweet Dreams.”

7. Prince of Darkness

First Available viaBattlecharge Battle Pass
AlternativesMad King

The Prince of Darkness was launched back in season 2 of Apex Legends as a battle pass exclusive skin. And soon after its release, it became quite a hit among the Apex player vase. The gold and red colorway with crazy-looking armor also proved to be a perfect combination for Caustic skin.

6. Field Research

Field Research
Release DateAugust 9, 2022
Available ViaHunted Battle Pass

Caustic, at the end of the day, is a scientist. Researching in the field is what he does best, and he probably enjoys it the most, too (outside of experimenting on his test subjects). So, what better way to conduct some research with the kit to do so?

5. Deputy of Death

Release DateMarch 9, 2021
Available viaChaos Theory Collection Event

The Deputy of Death was the first cowboy-inspired Cautic skin in the game, and it was released alongside the Chaos Theory collection event. The gold and red colorway with that cowboy hat really made this skin stand out from the crowd.

4. Necrosis

Release DateMarch 3, 2020
Available viaSystem Override Collection Event
AlternativesNoxious Nobleman

The Necrosis Caustic skin was released alongside the System Override collection event in Apex Legends. Respawn clearly took inspiration from Darkseid, who is one of the main antagonists in the DC comic book universe, to make this skin. Also, the green color scheme looks really unique.

3. Silverback

Release DateMay 18, 2021
Available viaALGS 2021 Championship Stage

The Silverback gorilla-inspired skin was quite special to the competitive Apex Legends scene, as the money from selling these skins went on to fund the prize pool for the ALGS Championship tournament.

2. Furnace Fury

Furnace Fury
Release DateMay 9, 2023
Available viaLocked and Loaded Store

Caustic was always a bit on the edge. Instead of toying with toxins, you can now play with fire. Burn your foes with your toxic flames with this skin apt for a man who is not to be messed with

1. Professor Nox

Professor Nox
Release DateAugust 22, 2023
Available viaBattle Academy Store

Released in the Battle Academy store sale, this skin is the perfect combination for the mastermind that is Caustic. He is an intellectual who will have the psychological upper hand. It’s only fitting he dresses to impart his teachings on his unfortunate test subjects.

Caustic got his Prestige skin as part of the Season 16 Veiled Collection Event. Respawn did an excellent job with Apex Contagion skin that perfectly matches Caustic’s personality. The name of the skin itself gives a decent impression of how the skin looks.

Apex Contagion’s attention to detail, from Caustic’s mask to his special boot, demonstrates why this might be the best Mythic skin in the game. The Apex Legends community also shares a similar opinion.

Will Past Event-related Caustic Skins Ever Return?

Respawn has announced that battle pass skins from Season 11 and onwards may be available in an event-specific skin package in the future. So, the event and recolor skins may ultimately make their way to the store. However, older skins from Battlepass may never make it into the game.

Upcoming Caustic Skins

There has been no updated information on any future Caustic skins in the game as of the time this is being written. More Caustic skins will be shown as soon as they are revealed or leaked. In the meantime, check out the Upcoming Leaked Skins article to find any forthcoming skins that will be available in the future.
