The best Phantom skins in Valorant are the ones that do not have too many fancy animations that get in the way of gameplay. Riot Games has added quite a few skins for the weapon as it competes closely with the Vandal in terms of popularity. Here are our picks for the five best Phantom skins in Valorant that allow you to defeat your opponents in style. The list is completely subjective and your picks may vary. Most of the best Phantom skins in Valorant are still available in the store and you can pick them up directly or via the Night Market if you get lucky with the drops. 

Best Phantom Skins in Valorant

Here are our picks for the best Phantom skins in Valorant 

1. Singularity Phantom 

The Singularity skins are among the best Riot Games has released so far. While it does have similar-looking variants that can be unlocked, the designers did a really good job with the colors and it is one of the best Phantom skins in Valorant once you fully upgrade it. The only downside to using the skin is that many people do not like the sound effects despite it being one of the best-looking skins in the game. 

2. Ion Phantom

The Ion collection is one of the newer releases when it comes to Phantom skins. It has a futuristic aesthetic  that makes the weapon look elegant. The animations are really well done and it has one of the best colour schemes of any skin collection. 

3. Oni Phantom

The Oni skins look a lot less futuristic compared to the other skins we have in the game for Phantom. It has some really good recolors that you can unlock and it is worth picking up if you don’t already have a great Phantom skin. 

4. Smite Phantom

If you are on a budget and do not want to spend too many Valorant Points on a single skin, the Smite is a great option. While it might not have the same elegance as some of the other skins on the list, it looks cool and futuristic and is a great pickup at just 875 VP.

5. Spline Phantom

If you want a skin that stands out from other options, the Spline is a great pick. It looks alien and offers a different aesthetic compared to the futuristic skins we are normally accustomed to. It looks interesting and while it might not be our number one pick, it still is one of the best Phantom skins in Valorant.
