In this article, we’ll showcase our pick for the top 10 best skins to use for Octane in Apex

Respawn made a surprise launch of Apex Legends back in February 2019. It was a massive hit despite the unannounced release of the game. And within one month of the launch, 50 million people had registered to play Apex Legends. More than 130 million people play this game worldwide across multiple platforms.

Apex Legends is a battle royale game, but the hero-shooter aspect, precise gunplay, movement, and character differentiations have made the game popular among all sorts of player bases across the globe. For those who like to do flashy tap strafes, wall bounces, and rope jumps, Octane is the perfect legend for such movements. Naturally, for a flashy legend like Octane, there needs to be some garish cosmetics equipped that can make the gameplay experience a whole lot better.

Our 10 Favorite Octane Skin Picks

Octane has a wide collection of skins inside his wardrobe. However, not all skins are created equal. Some of the skins may not be suitable since they are too plain or too outrageous.

So, without further ado, let’s get started.

Peak Performance has a superhero and supervillain vibe at the same time. The cosmetic has a bulky plastic suit made of an orange and off-white color.
