Here we will talk about all the best Valkyrie skins that Respawn has released in Apex Legends so far in 2022.
Apex Legends was published in 2019 as a battle royale spin-off of Respawn’s successful FPS game Titanfall, and it quickly established itself as the greatest battle royale game on the market. Because the game was free to play, it attracted a large number of players in a short amount of time.
Upon its release, Respawn introduced a few legends with distinct abilities and roles, that made Apex Legends more unique than other battle royale games on the market. The characters in Apex Legends are divided into four categories: offensive, defensive, recon, and support.
Recons characters are specialized for gathering important intel about the enemies. These legends can also find the next ring location by scanning the survey beacon ahead of time. Since 2019, Respawn has released 5 different recon legends throughout the lifetime of Apex Legends.
One of such recon characters is Valkyrie. She is the second latest recon legend that respawn has introduced in season 9 of Apex Legends. Upon Valkyrie’s release, she became very popular because of her ultimate ability to get her team out of some difficult and tricky situations. Apart from the ultimate, her offensive tactical and VTOL Jets passive has also made this character fan favorite to many Apex Legends enthusiasts.
Valkyrie was launched in season 9 of Apex Legends, and because of that, the character does not have tons of legendary skins. However, Respawn has been releasing some great cosmetics for this flashy legend, and there are quite a few insane-looking skins for Valkyrie that every Valkyrie main will love to have.

Best Valkyrie Skins in Apex Legends (A Complete Tier List)
Here we’ll rank all the Valkyrie skins that Respawn has released so far in the game. We’ll put all the skins into three distinct tiers such as S-Tier, A-Tier, and lastly B-Tier.
The S-Tier Valkyrie skins are the elite skins that every Valkyrie player wishes to own. The A-Tier skins are rare and follow closely behind the S-Tier counterparts. Lastly, B-Tier skins are legendary cosmetics, but they feel very ordinary compared to the S and A-Tier Valkyrie skins.
We have ranked these Valkyrie skins based on their looks, rarity, and popularity. Like any other tier list, this one is also purely subjective, and any of the mentioned skins can be put anywhere on the list. This list is intended chiefly to assist novices and veteran players looking for some of the best-looking legendary Valkyrie skins.
- Best(S-Tier): Brightright, Blue Bomber, Air Orchid
- Good(A-Tier): Aerial Evolution, Omutsuri Fury, Azure Blessing, Golden Opportunity
- Average(B-Tier): Air Show, Ultra Legend, Cloud Marauder.
Top 10 Best Valkyrie skins in Apex Legends
Here, we’ll aim to highlight some of Respawn’s best-looking legendary Valkyrie skins thus far in Season 12. Though Valkyrie has limited legendary skins, she has some of the coolest-looking ones, and this top ten list will serve as a reference for players. In addition, this list will be ranked from worst to the best.
10. Cloud Marauder
“Marauder” means a person who raids or a raider. Unsurprisingly, Cloud Marauder was released in the Raiders Collection Event in season 11 of Apex Legends. This cyan-colored cosmetic with a red bandana on her forehead is one of the badass skins Respawn released for Valkyrie. So beware of any Valkyrie enemy with this skin because she will surely try to kill you and raid the loots from your death box.
9. Ultra Legend
Ultra Legend is a blue and orange-colored Valkyrie skin that resembles a lot like a fighter jet. The battle scars on her skin show that she went through a lot of struggles throughout her lifetime. Ultra Legend is a recolor version of Valkyrie’s default legendary Skin named Military Grade, and this skin first appeared in February 2022.
8. Air Show
Air Show is a minimalistic-looking Valkyrie skin that is a recolor of another default legendary skin named Titan Tested. This skin does not have any flashy colors or designs and is perfect for those who want a simple legendary skin for Valkyrie. Air Show was released in the store in September 2021.
7. Golden Opportunity
Golden Opportunity is an original Valkyrie-themed skin from Norse mythology that served the god Odin himself. This super gorgeous Valkyrie cosmetics with gold-plated armor all over her skin shows why she is not an ordinary human. Golden Opportunity is a default legendary skin for Valkyrie that can be crafted with 1200 metals.
6. Azure Blessing
Azure Blessing looks very similar to Golden Opportunity but with a different color combination. It has bluish silver armor all over her body with red highlights on her helmet, hands, and legs. The subtle designs throughout the skin make it look more stunning than its golden counterpart. Azure Blessing is also a default legendary skin for Valkyrie.
5. Omatsuri Fury
Omatsuri Fury is inspired by the Omatsuri Japanese festival, where people show their gratitude toward nature. This Vibrant short yellow Kimono skin has a Japanese culture mixed with it, and many players, including the Apex professional player, Snip3down, love this cosmetic for Valkyrie. The skin was released in the Genesis Collection Event in season 9 of Apex Legends.
4. Aerial Evolution
Aerial Evolution is one of the most unique-looking Cosmetics for Valkyrie. The helmet, goggles, and the outline of the skin confirm that the skin is inspired by dragonflies. The glowing pink color also makes the skin stand out. Aerial Evolution was a part of the premium battle pass in season 10 that unlocked at level 25.
3. Air Orchid
Air Orchid is a cyberpunk-themed futuristic skin for Valkyrie. The skin looks amazing because of its cyborg-like features. This skin made its first debut in the 3rd Year Anniversary Collection Event in season 12 of Apex Legends.
2. Blue Bomber
Valkyrie always wanted to become a Pilot, following in the footsteps of her father. The Blue Bomber is one of the two skins that were the reminders of her becoming the Pilot she always wanted to be. The Blue Bomber is a recolor of the original Birthright skin, which was featured in the End of The Year Sale in 2021.
Birthright is the original skin that gave birth to the fan-favorite legend, Valkyrie. The birthright suit was made with her father’s Northstar and the helmet he left her. The skin features an Apex Predator logo, unsurprisingly because her father worked as a mercenary for the Apex Predators. Birthright was exclusively a part of the Valkyrie Launch Bundle in 2021.
The event and recolor skins may ultimately make their way to the store, and skins like Birthright, Blue Bomber, and Air Orchid may still be available. However, skins such as Aerial Evolution from the battle pass will not be available in the Apex Legends store.
However, Respawn has announced that battle pass skins from Season 11 and onwards may be available in an event-specific skin package in the future.
