The Best Shorty Skins in Valorant
Shorty is perhaps the most satisfying gun Valorant. It isn’t objectively good, but one-banging someone at point-blank range just hits different. So, why not make the one-tap frags even more exciting with some great skins?
Let’s begin with the Hivemind Shorty skin, which was added to Valorant on August 5th, 2020, as a part of the Ignition: Act 2 Battle Pass.
You can’t buy the skin anymore, but we still thought it should be included. Because, if nothing else, this is certainly the most badass shorty skin. It just ain't here to mess around – it’s here to get the business done. But the purple-on-black thing might be a bit too simplistic for some of you guys.
If that’s the case, then allow us to introduce the stylish and elaborate Oni Shorty skin.
Now, I love the Oni skins because they just scream dignified samurai vibe to me, but they will cost you 1775 VPs. However, if you're into such vibes, you should totally go for it.
But if 1775 VPs is just too much to ever spend on a Shorty skin, then how about this one.
This one is just 1275 VPs! However, this is a non-upgradeable skin, so you have to like the Wasteland look. Personally, I do, but I always picture the Wasteland Shorty as a kind of Mad-Max, dystopian western-style gun. And I love that.
If you’re looking for a cleaner look, though, then check out the Snakebite Shorty.
This is a neon green and black skin, and it looks pretty menacing. But the best part? It’s completely free. All you need to do to unlock this skin is complete the entire Viper contract.
Let's end things with another Battle Pass skin.
This is the Ruin Shorty Skin, that was available as part of the Ignition: Act 3 Battle Pass. This is the most majestic skin for the Shorty in the game, and while it’s no Prime, it does look very premium.
Well, folks, that was your rundown of the best Shorty skins in all of Valorant. Well, you may not be winning so much with this wacky weapon, but at least you'll have some style.
