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

The Sheriff is the deadliest pistol in VALORANT, and in the right hands, one can get sick plays with it. Here, we’ll be ranking the skins from worst to best.

The Sheriff is the most expensive pistol in the game, coming in at 800 in-game credits. This makes it so that you cannot buy any abilities or armor if you buy the Sheriff in the pistol round. But with its high cost comes high rewards as well. The gun is capable of delivering 55 dmg to the body and 145-159 dmg to the head, depending on the range. This makes it so that you can 2 shot unarmored enemies to the body while armored enemies go down in 3 shots.

It can also 1 shot headshot at close to medium ranges to full armored opponents. This makes it so that it can be a highly effective eco-round weapon in the hands of players like Scream and Tenz with a godly aim.

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 altered the look of the weapon, added special VFX, GFX, and one skin turns your weapon into a literal dragon!

While choosing a good Sheriff 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 CS:GO, which have 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.

Best Sheriff Skins in VALORANT 2022: A Complete Tier list

Since the game’s release, Riot has released more than 26 different Sheriff skins in VALORANT as a part of weapon bundles, agent contracts, and battle passes. Since battle pass skins are obtainable only during their respective act and cannot be obtained later in the store, we excluded those from our top 10 but included them in the tier list. Battle pass skins are occasionally good, but they aren’t usually better than skins from featured bundles and some agent contracts, so our top 10 will remain unaffected with their exclusion.

Bonus: Arcane Sheriff skin

The Arcane Sheriff was introduced in the game in collaboration with Riot’s web series: Arcane. In the series, one of the main characters, Powder, makes some crazy armaments, including a Hand cannon, in a surprising turn of events that will not be mentioned because of spoilers. The Arcane Sheriff skin in VALORANT is meant to resemble that. The skin has the coolest equip animation in the game, similar to Counter Strike’s Deagle equip animation. The firing animation is also unique as the player fans the hammer with every shot. Unfortunately, it was a limited-time event, so the skin is not available anymore to purchase. However, Riot might do a rerun of the event sometime in the future.

  • Rarity: Arcane
  • Price: 2377 VP (Bundle)
  • How to Buy: Limited time Store
  • VFX, GFX, Finisher: Yes (No finisher)
  • Color Variants: No
