Apex Legends undoubtedly has one of the finest collections of skins in any battle royale game that is out there right now in 2023. 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 used 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 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 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 Apex Legends in 2023.

Top 10 Rarest skins in Apex Legends
10. Aerial Evolution
Aerial Evolution was a part of the Apex Legends Season 10 Emergence Battle Pass. You could only acquire this skin by purchasing the Battle Pass during Season 10. The skin never made it into the shop later.
9. Prince of Darkness
Prince of Darkness is one of the earliest released skins on this list. It was part of the Season 2 Premium Battlepass. So, most people who started later won’t have this skin. However, Respawn released a recolor version of Prince of Darkness in the Season 8 Anniversary Collection Event named Mad King. So, many might not consider this skin as rare as the other skins on the list.
8. Crafty Kitsune
Crafty Kitsune was a part of the Apex Legends Season 9 Legacy Battle Pass. You could obtain this skin by purchasing the Battle Pass during Season 9 and reaching Level 25. Rampart mains who own this skin prefer it over other skins due to its uniqueness and rarity.
7. Iced Out
Like most other skins in the list, Iced Out is also a Battlepass exclusive Legendary skin that was only obtainable in Season 3. This skin has a huge fanbase; mainly the pathfinder mains adore it due to its unique design.
6. Fool’s Gold
Fool’s Gold was released in Season 5 as a reward for Battlepass and could be unlocked at level 25. Mirage has many similar-looking skins. So, despite being rare, the skin doesn’t attract Mirage fans much.
5. Sky Marshal
Similar to Fool’s Gold skin, the Sky Marshal also can be found in the Season 5 Premium Battlepass. You had to reach level 50 in order to unlock the Sky Marshal skin. Only those who got hold of this skin now have it.
4. From the Ashes
Released in Season 4, From the Ashes is one of the unique skins not only for Lifeline but in the game overall. The skin has a very creepy vibe which opposes Lifeline’s persona. Nonetheless, many prefer it over other Lifeline skins.
3. Perfect Soldier
Similar to Lifeline’s From the Ashes skin, the Perfect Soldier also can be found in the Season 5 Premium Battlepass. You had to reach level 25 in order to unlock this skin. This skin never appeared again in the game. Not even as a recolor.
Players needed a Nintendo Switch in order to obtain Pathfinder’s P.A.T.H skin. Any player that logs onto Apex Legends via Switch will receive the P.A.T.H. skin as a gift. Unfortunately, people who didn’t have Nintendo Switch couldn’t get the skin, and it never made it to the store ever again.
1. Omega Point
Omega Point is also a Pathfinder skin in the list. The Omega Point was rewarded to players with Twitch Prime. Many players took the skins with the help of a glitch. However, Respawn fixed the bug immediately, and the skin was removed and never returned to the store. Omega Point is one of the oldest skins in the game. As a result, it is the 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 later. Also, in recent times, Respawn has started to bring back some old recolors and 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.
