Jinx has plenty of skins to choose from, so let’s see which ones are worth buying.

If I had to choose the most iconic League of Legends champion, it would likely be Jinx. The champion was released back in 2013, which is almost a decade ago. But despite being a decade old, Jinx remains one of the most popular champions in the game. The reason for her massive popularity is her gameplay.

Jinx has a straightforward yet very fun kit. In addition, She has a very high damage output compared to other marksmen and has one of the highest auto attack ranges in the game. Jinx’s massive auto attack range allows her to maintain range and rain bullets from afar. Also, her passive “Get Excited!” gives her movement speed and attack speed for getting a takedown, making her a high threat in team fights.

Now that all the gameplay stuff is out of the way, let’s talk about her skins. Over the years, Jinx has received a good amount of skin; some are good, and some are bad. So, In this article, go through all her skins and find out which ones are good and worth buying.

How Many Jinx Skins Are There in 2023?

As of writing this article, Jinx currently has Twelve Skins in total. The majority of her skins are distinctive and generally well-made.

Crime City Jinx, previously known as Mafia Jinx, is the first skin that was released for Jinx. It’s a fairly old skin and has held up pretty well over the years. But as Riot released more skins for Jinx, the newer skins simply outclassed Crime City Jinx. Which leads to the skin being the worst skin on the list.

Zombie Slayer Jinx thematically in one of Jinx’s best skins. It perfectly captures her crazy yet fun-loving nature. But when it comes to effects, the skins fall apart. The skin doesn’t have any noteworthy animation or sound effects and doesn’t even have chromas. Thus, the skin is so low on our list.

9. PROJECT: Jinx

The PROJECT skin line used to be considered the pinnacle of League’s skin design. But as time went on, Riot started releasing PROJECT skins for all the popular champions, thus resulting in champions that didn’t match the PROJECT theme getting PROJECT skins. And one of these skins is PROJECT: Jinx.

8. Ambitious Elf Jinx

Who doesn’t love a little Winter/Christmas-themed skin? Riot has been spot-on with their holiday-themed skins, and Ambitious Elf Jinx is no exception. The skin has excellent visual/audio effects and solid animations. In addition, the skin has one of the best recall animations out of all Junx’s skins.

  • New Model
  • New Animations
  • New Recall Animation
  • New VFX/SFX

Heartseeker Jinx is yet another of Jinx’s skin that doesn’t thematically fit with her lore. In her lore, she is supposed to be a “Joker” esque character that shoots and blows up stuff, which is quite the opposite of what Heartseeker represents.

But credit where credit is due, the skin is actually well made. It has some solid effects and animations and has very smooth auto-attack animations. In addition, it has some really good chromas.

6. Firecracker Jinx

  • New Animations
  • New Recall Animation
  • New VFX/SFX

Firecracker Jinx feels like the most used Jinx skin. Every time I hop into a game and see a Jinx, most of the time, they are using the skin. There’s a good reason for the popularity of the skin: it has some of the smoothest sound effects of all Jinx’s skins. It also has some excellent particle effects, especially the fireworks particles. In addition, many of the Pro players use the skin when playing Jinx.

5. Odyssey Jinx
