My Take On Best Knife Skins In Valorant

Knife Skins have a much bulkier price tag compared to other weapon skins like the Vandal or your secondary guns. That’s why I’ve only kept 5 knife skins in my inventory, which I use alternatively depending on my mood. There’s no doubt that the Araxys knife skin looks the best, courtesy of the entire Araxys bundle looking futuristic and with satisfying audio.

My least recommended knife skin in Valorant is the waveform knife, as it is the most costly knife in the game, and there’s no real benefit from buying it. You should also focus on setting the crosshair that best suits you. This will give you even more control in the game while aiming for the enemies’ heads.
