Best Lúcio Skin in Overwatch 2021: Ranking all the skins from Worst to Best

Here we will be ranking the best skins of our favorite Brazillian speedster, Lucio.

Lúcio Correia dos Santos grew up in Rio de Janeiro, in a poor favela hit hard by the aftermath of the Omnic Crisis. From a young age, he was into sports, and football was one of his favorites. He found his talent in music and uplifted war-torn Brazil with his music which brought people together.

But after the Vishkar Corporation took over the city in promises of law and order, it was instead an imposing society with strict curfews and exploitation of the populace as cheap labor. To fight against it, Lucio stole Vishkar’s sonic technology (which his father played a major role in developing) and used it to rally the people and drive away the Vishkar. A popular misconception is that Lucio doesn’t have legs but in fact, he has futuristic boots on which allows him to glide across angled surfaces.

Lucio is a healer in Overwatch who uses a Sonic amplifier as his main weapon attacking with sound bursts and pushing away enemies with a sound wave commonly referred to as a “boop”. Crossfade allows him to switch between healing and speed-up mode. His ability is to Amp up the rate of healing or speed and his ultimate is a sound barrier that provides allies with overheal.

Because of his inspiring personality and usefulness in-game especially with slow-moving compositions needing the speed boost, he is a very popular and much-loved hero in the game. As Lucio, chaining wall rides and booping enemies to their death is one of the most satisfying things in Overwatch. Lucio has received a lot of skins and cosmetics in the game and today we will be ranking them all.
