Best Odin Skins in VALORANT 2022: Ranked from Worst to Best

The Odin is a heavy machine gun in VALORANT, and in the right hands, it is one of the deadliest weapons in the game. In this article, we’ll rank the skins from worst to best.

The Odin is a high rate-of-fire heavy weapon in VALORANT priced at 3200 in-game credits. It is on the more expensive side compared to rifles at 2900 credits. But in the right scenario, the Odin can be one of the deadliest weapons in the game. As it is a machine gun, it is used to defend a site or get kills through walls. You can kill an enemy with two shots to the head or one shot to the head & two shots to the body.

The Odin also has high penetration power, a high rate of fire, and a huge magazine, making it the best gun to wallbang enemies through to get some cheeky kills. It is common to see Sovas propped up with an Odin and using their recon arrow to spot enemies. After revealing an enemy, they can get easy kills with the Odin.

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 CS:GO, 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 alter the look of the weapon, add special VFX, GFX, and one skin turns your weapon into a literal dragon!

Best Odin Skins in VALORANT 2022: A Complete Tier list

Since the game’s release, Riot has released more than 12 different Odin skins in VALORANT as a part of weapon bundles and battle passes. The Odin definitely did not get as much love as the other weapons since it has a third of the number of skins compared to the more mainstream weapons. The majority of Odin’s skins are included with battle passes, with only a few as a part of premium bundles. This is why our top 10 list will include bundle skins along with battle pass skins.
