Here, we’ll list all the Premium Edition skins in VALORANT alongside their looks, release dates, prices, and more.

VALORANT is a free-to-play tactical shooter from Riot Games, the developers of League of Legends. As such, they opted to implement their tried and tested “freemium” model to monetize their new title.

Basically, it means players can enjoy this FPS game without spending a dime. However, players can choose to customize their play session by purchasing cosmetic items such as weapon skins, battle passes, gun charms, banners, and more directly from the in-game digital store.

Among these cosmetic items, premium editions of skins are really popular in the community. While they aren’t as advanced and feature reach as the Exclusive or the Ultra edition skins in the game, they still provide enough customization options to please even the most demanding players.

Unfortunately, the Nebula skin line didn’t feature any additional VFX or color variants for players to further customize this skin set. This skin line clearly took heavy inspiration from the mysteries of space and event horizon.

VALORANT GO! Vol. 1 more commonly known as the anime skin line, was unsurprisingly a massive hit among the player base. Since players were bugging Riot Games to add some anime-inspired skins in the game, the cosmetic department happily obliged and hit this one out of the park.

Forsaken came as a direct continuation of the whole light vs. dark theme in VALORANT skins. It was the total opposite of the sovereign skin bundle in Valorant. Where the Sovereign skin bundle has a light theme, the Forsaken bundle is the polar opposite and features a dark theme.

Surprisingly, players can customize these skins to look exactly like the original Sovereign bundle, as one of the color variants is the same as the Sovereign skin line. The other color variant is the default green one.

The Recon skin bundle introduced the highly requested butterfly knife to VALORANT. While the military-inspired camouflage weapons skins in the recon bundle were jaw-dropping, it was the butterfly knife that really stole the show.

Riot Games went all-in in the melee inspection department and gave players really cool-looking knife-juggling animations. Fortunately, this recon bundle features color customization options even for the butterfly knife. The color options are the default grey, red, ash, and lastly, a military-inspired green and grey color combo.

The Radiant Crisis 001 is another comic book panel-inspired skin bundle. Unlike the other anime or comic-inspired weapon skins, this specific bundle features an entirely different art style.

The Xenohunter bundle looks very close to default skins, which may upset skin collectors. The only cool factor about each skin is that it has a heartbeat sensor on its side. In addition, these skins will also feature unique equip animation for every weapon.

You might have seen him in different forms in many anime and movies. Like most heroes and great characters, Sun Wukong wields a unique weapon that is exclusive to him. The weapon Wukong carries is called ‘Ruyi Jingu Bang.’ Fortunately, VALORANT didn’t forget to introduce the weapon as a melee named ‘Ruyi Staff.’ Not only that, but you’ll also be able to see the Ruyi in every other weapon’s finisher animation.

How to Buy Premium Edition skins

So, you have fallen for a particular skin bundle in the premium category in VALORANT, but don’t know exactly how to get your hands on them. Let this guide help you.

First of all, there are three ways to purchase a premium edition skin in VALORANT. The first way is to get the whole bundle when it first arrives in the digital store. Each skin line usually stays in the shop for around two weeks.

Players can only get the whole bundle within that two-week window. After that, Riot usually removes them from the storefront to make space for the next skin line.

Valorant shop

The second way to buy premium edition skin is through the daily rotating skin shop. VALORANT’s in-game store rotates four different skins from past skin lines. And if you are lucky, you might get a particular skin in the premium category from the past skin line that you like. If it arrives in your daily rotating shop, you can purchase only that skin, not the whole bundle.

The last way to get a premium edition skin is via the Night Market, which provides randomly generated discounts on randomly selected skins from the game. Also, Riot sometimes brings back old premium skins in the form of a special event like the past run-it-back bundle.

Do Premium Edition skins go on sale?

Yes, as mentioned above, a premium edition of skins in VALORANT can go on sale via the Night Market. In short, Night Market usually provides random discounts on six randomly selected skins from previous skin bundles. In short, premium edition skins can go on sale.

Upcoming Premium Edition Skins

There has not been any update regarding any future premium edition skin in VALORANT. The last premium edition skin line that the game introduced was the Valiant Hero bundle.

Unfortunately, data miners have not revealed any new details surrounding future premium skin releases. We’ll definitely keep an eye on that one and update you if we find something. As premium edition skins are really common, expect Riot to introduce another one fairly soon.
