Valorant Best Marshal skins

The Marshal is a low-cost sniper rifle in VALORANT that can bring immense value in the hands of a honed sharpshooter. Here, we’ll be listing the top ten Marshal skins from worst to best.

This bolt-action sniper rifle comes in at 950 in-game credits. This price tag allows the Marshal to be bought straight from the second round onwards as well as on half-buy rounds. It deals 101 damage on body shots, so it is extremely effective on rounds when you know the enemy will have no armor. On top of that, this sniper is more mobile and has a higher fire rate than the Operator. It is also the only sniper to have a very accurate unscoped firing mode. This is why a popular strategy against armored opponents is first landing a scoped shot, then immediately following up with an unscoped body shot and securing the kill.

The Marshal is a lever-action sniper, reloading one bullet at a time. Players can reload one bullet at a time after every shot, which would be very efficient and increase the magazine’s capacity to the entire available reserve.

Skins in VALORANT are merely decorative and do not offer any real in-game advantages vs. the default skin. Although compared to other games like CS2, which only offer recolors of the same exact weapon, the devs at Riot went a bit overboard with the skins in VALORANT as they completely altered the look of the weapon, added special VFX, GFX, and one skin turns your weapon into a literal dragon!

While choosing a good Marshal skin for yourself, you should determine if you like the theme of the skins, the looks, the inspect/equip animations, the finisher, and the firing sounds. Unlike other games like CS2, which has individual pricing for skins, the skins in VALORANT come at a fixed price, depending on their collection. Select Edition skins cost 875vp, while Premium and Exclusive Edition skins cost 1775vp and 2175vp, respectively.

How Many Marshal Skins Are There?

As of this writing, there are currently a total of 31 Marshal skins available in VALORANT. This includes skins from different skin bundles and Battle Pass.

Finally, we have the Sovereign Marshal at our #1 spot. The Sovereign bundle is one of the oldest but best-looking bundles in the game. It features an angelic or holy theme with intricate patterns in white with gold accents. When you upgrade, it also shines in blue.

How to Get These Marshal Skins?

Marshal Skins can be obtained from a variety of sources in VALORANT. To begin, the majority of Marshal skins are only available as part of specific skin bundles. For a limited time, these skin bundles are available for purchase at the VALORANT store. You can purchase the entire bundle or just the Marshal skin for a fraction of the overall bundle price, and the skin will be yours to keep forever.

However, it is understandable if you did not have the opportunity to purchase a specific Marshal skin when it was first released. But that doesn’t mean it’s gone for good. The skins appear in your VALORANT store at random after certain time periods. Moreover, every two months, the skins also appear at random in the Night Market. So keep an eye out because your favorite Marshal skins might be waiting for you at the store or Night Market. However, because VALORANT has such a huge selection of weapon skins, it’s unlikely that you’ll find the exact skin you’re looking for there.

So, another way to get Marshal skins is using the Battle Passes. VALORANT generally includes three sets of skin collections in a Battle Pass, one of which is a melee. A Marshal skin is almost certainly in one of these collections. If that’s the case, you’ll have to grind through the Battle Pass tiers to get your hands on the Marshal skin of your choosing.

Is it Possible to Get Free Marshal Skins?

VALORANT does offer some free weapon skins from Agent Gear and Battle Pass competition. Unfortunately, all of these skins are only for pistols. For example, Sheriff, Shorty, Classic, Frenzy, or Ghost. So, there is no way to get free Marshal skins in VALORANT.

So this wraps up our top 10 Marshal skins in VALORANT. Note that, like all lists, this is subjective, and your personal rankings might differ from the ones we have here. You can also take a look at the best skins for other weapons in the game:
