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

The Spectre is one the most popular guns in VALORANT, right after the main two rifles. Here we’ll be ranking the Spectre skins from worst to best.

The Spectre is an inexpensive sub-machine gun in VALORANT. It is good at medium to close range, so it is popular in half buy, anti eco, and rush rounds. It costs 1650 credits, and it is fairly accurate at close range while running, making it an ideal but annoying run-and-gun weapon. According to stats by Riot, the Spectre has the 3rd highest most kills in the game, coming in the right after Vandal and Phantom.

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 Spectre skin for yourself, you should determine if you like the theme of the skin, 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. For example, select Edition skins cost 875vp while Premium and Exclusive Edition skins cost 1775vp and 2175vp respectively.

Best Spectre Skins in VALORANT: A Complete Tier list

Since the game’s release, Riot has released 28 different Spectre skins in VALORANT as a part of weapon bundles 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, so our top 10 will remain unaffected with their exclusion.
