Apex Legends undoubtedly has one of the finest collections of skins in any battle royale game that is out there right now in 2021. Unsurprisingly, some of these skins are very rare and highly sought after by the community.
As Apex Legends is a free-to-play game, Respawn decided to use the ever-popular “freemium” model to monetize the game. Meaning Apex Legends doesn’t have any barrier to entry and players don’t actually have to spend a dime in the game if they don’t want to.
However, they can spend real-world money to purchase cosmetic items such as skins to customize their play session in the game. Since the game has been out for a while, some of these weapon or character skins have become really sought after by the community mainly due to their rarity and unique design.
Usually, Respawn releases two random recolors of the four basic legendary characters or weapon skins every week. Following that time period, Respawn removes these skins from the storefront. So, only players who collected these skins within that short time period have them in their inventory.
Consequently, after some time, these skins become really rare and highly coveted. Here we’ll talk about 10 of the rarest skins in the game in 2021.

10 Rarest skins in Apex Legends
Wraith’s Airship Assassin (Requires Void Specialist)
When it comes to the rarest skin in the game, Wraith’s Airship Assassin has to be at the top of the list for every Wraith one trick. This dark brown recolor of the original Void Specialist skin has been one of the most sought-after skin, according to many players. For a long time, it was only available in the hands of elite few players.
Pathfinder’s Green Machine (Requires The Aviator)
This watermelon-colored green and red skin is very popular among Pathfinder players in the game. Since this skin came out a long time ago, very few players actually owned this recolor. This one is a must-collect item for any Pathfinder main.
Octane’s Red Shift(Requires El Diablo)
The red variant of the basic El Diablo legendary Octane skin is on the same level in terms of exclusivity as Wraith’s Airship Assassin. Speed junkies in the Apex Legends community consider this to be one of the rarest Octane skin in the game.
Mirage’s Dark Artist(Requires Ghost Machine)
Mirage’s Dark Artist is currently one of the rarest skin in the game right now in 2021. As this dark recolor of the basic Ghost Machine skin hasn’t made a return to the store yet, this is currently very rare among the player base.
BloodHound’s The Centurion
BloodHound’s knight-themed “The Centurian” skin first made its debut back in 2019 with the Iron Crown collection event. And it is undoubtedly the rarest BloodHound skin in the game right now in 2021.
Bangalore’s Full Metal Jacket(Requires The Spacewalker)
Bangalore has a couple of rare skin in the game but among them, the dark recolor of the basic Spacewalker skin has to be the most sought-after skin, according to the player base. Also, this skin features a really nice color contrast between dark grey and gold.
Revenant’s Forged Knight
The Forged Knight was a part of the champion edition skin bundle for Revenant. And to date, it is one of his most exclusive and rare skin in the game. Revenant has one of the sickest skin collections in the game apart from Wraith.
Lifeline’s Judge Jury Executioner
The Iron Crown Collection event had one of the best collections of skins in the game. And Lifeline’s Judge Jury Executioner was definitely one of them. As such, it is also very rare. Thus, making it really sought after by Lifeline mains.
Wattson’s The Warrior Empress
Similar to other legends in the game, Wattson also received a really unique and rare legendary skin in the Iron Crown collection event called “The Warrior Empress”. To date, this one is one of her rarest skin in the game.
In the system override event, Caustic received this one-of-a-kind villain skin straight out of a silver age comic book. It definitely has a Darkseid vibe to it. Unsurprisingly, this is undoubtedly one of his rarest skin in the game.
Will these rare skins ever return to the game?
According to data miners, some of these skins are already scheduled to be released in the latter parts of season 10 Emergence. Also, in recent times, Respawn has started to bring back some old recolors as well as skins that were originally released as a part of past limited-time events.
Therefore, there is a good chance that the unique and rare skin that you are holding your breath for might return to the cosmetic store in one form or another soon.
