Riot Games launched two new Valorant skin collections in March 2021 that saw a lot of positive reception.
The Magepunk skins were inspired by steampunk with futuristic elements embedded into them.
The Infantry collection on the other hand is more of a WW2-esque offering with classic designs and they are competitively priced.

Valorant got new skins last month that turned out to be instant hits. We got two new collections that launched in March which includes the Magepunk and Infantry sets. Valorant’s new skins have been very good recently and while the Infantry collection boasts of classic designs of an era gone by, the Magepunk skins announced last month offer a mix of futurism and steampunk. Here are the top 5 best new Valorant skins that you should grab if you are looking to pick up some of the new offerings listed in the Store. The list is completely subjective, and you should prioritize picking up skins for the weapons you love.

The Magepunk Ghost with the Level 7 upgrade is one of the most aesthetically pleasing new Valorant skins from March 2021’s releases. While the Ghost might not be the best weapon in the game, the skin is very beautiful and a must-have if you love the Magepunk theme. 

1. Infantry Ares

While the Ares and Odin get a lot of hate from players at times because they are “noob friendly”, there is no denying that the Infantry Ares skin is a sight to behold. Riot Games took a leap of faith with the entire Infantry collection and added skins that are a far cry from what you would expect from most Valorant skin releases. While heavy weapons might not be the best in the meta, the Infantry Ares is a very subtle and elegant skin for fans of the weapon.
