Best Ghost Skins in VALORANT 2023: Ranking All the Skins from Worst to Best

Here we’ll rank all the Ghost skins Riot Games has released so far in Valorant.

Riot Games entered the highly competitive tactical shooter genre of video games with Valorant. Simply put, Riot took movement and gunplay from CSGO and hero-based abilities from Overwatch and combined them in such a manner that attracted the attention of diehard tactical shooter fans.

As it is a game developed by Riot Games, it is obviously a free-to-play game. Consequently, there is no barrier to entry while playing this game. However, players can still purchase weapon skins using real-world money to customize their play sessions.

Since Riot’s main revenue source from VALORANT is paid cosmetics, they have already released a quite diverse roster of skins for all the different weapons available in the game.

But here we’ll shed some light on Ghost, which is a pistol mostly used in early or low-buy rounds in VALORANT. Like other weapons in its class, Riot has released some amusing-looking reactive skins for this weapon.
