[Top 15] Apex Legends Best Skins That Look Freakin Awesome!

Apex Legends Best Skins
Bloodhound calls upon the Allfather.


Void Specialist

It's like something out of an 80s Sci-Fi anime.

Looking like it’s straight out of Akira or Cyberpunk 2077, it’s easy to see why Wraith’s Void Specialist skin is a common fan favorite.

  • Adding a surgical mask and ditching the scarf makes Wraith look even more menacing than she already was.
  • A flash of bright pink is all enemies will see before you dome them with a wingman.
  • The dangling cords and tubes around her jump-pack make it look detailed and fresh.

Void Specialist can be earned with crafting points or purchased directly with Apex Coins.

Dynastic Cycle

It has been brought down for many generations.

Many Legendary skins are large and can restrict visibility for players. The R301’s Dynastic Cycle isn’t one of them. It maintains a high level of detail and intricacy while not expanding on the R301’s slim footprint.

  • Asian themes are always fun to see.
  • The R301 is one of the most popular weapons in the game, so most players know their crafting points are going to be well spent.
  • Since the footprint of the gun doesn’t change, it looks great with any sight. *Cough* Triple Take *Cough*

Dynastic Cycle can be earned with crafting points or purchased directly with Apex Coins.

The Alchemist

Transmute yourself some kills.

Unlike Dynastic Cycle, the R99’s Alchemist skin greatly restricts visibility with it’s outward facing spikes, but that’s what players love about it. Such an audacious display of aggression is perfect for the close quarters combat the R99 demands.

  • The skin makes the gun feel truly different and legendary from any other skin.
  • Spikes.
  • The cool alchemic etching might transmute you some eliminations.

The Alchemist can be earned with crafting points or purchased directly with Apex Coins.

The Lifesaver

Lifeline? More like flatline.

Widely regarded as one of the best weapon skins in the game, the Kraber’s Lifesaver skin changes almost every aspect of the weapon. It’s almost as if the Lifesaver tells a story, \ of life outside  the arena.

  • Finding a Kraber can be hard, but the Legendary skin is so cool it’s almost worth it.
  • Saving lives is the opposite of what you’ll be doing.
  • Mountain Rescue, another Kraber skin, is very similar to Lifesaver, so players have a good chance of getting something they’ll like in a loot box.

The Lifesaver can be earned with crafting points or purchased directly with Apex Coins.

The Superstar

Like something out of an 80s thriller.

The Superstar looks like nothing else Apex Legends has to offer. It’s electric pink and star-dotted color scheme bring about feelings of the 1980s. One handed, Terminator style reloads are recommended for maximum 80s feel.

  • The only skin even close to The Superstar’s aesthetic is Wraith’s Void Specialist skin.
  • Players lucky enough (or rich enough) to purchase both should rock the all pink look.
  • It’ll make you a Superstar for eliminations.

The Superstar can be earned with crafting points or purchased directly with Apex Coins.

The Pride

The Prejudice is all black.

The RE-45’s Pride skin is a great example of a weapon’s footprint drastically increasing. On the bright side, the RE-45 is so small it almost doesn’t matter. The skin is just as glorious as it is ridiculous, but it doesn’t impact gameplay.

  • Only a few weapon skins have an animal theme, so seeing The Pride is refreshing.
  • Even fewer skins have a gold color palette.
  • “She’s fast like me.”- Octane 2019

The Pride can be earned with crafting points or purchased directly with Apex Coins.

The Death Ray

The name says it all.

Following the sci-fi aesthetic of some other top skins, the Wingman’s Death Ray is a great retro-inspired ray gun skin. 

  • You feel like you’re zapping lasers instead of shooting lead.
  • The inspect and reload animations are even better than the stock skins.
  • Even with all the nerfs the Wingman is definitely still a viable weapon.

The Death Ray can be earned with crafting points or purchased directly with Apex Coins.

Imperial Warrior

Time to conquer some enemies.

Bloodhound has some amazing skins, so picking the best one for him is difficult. Some players like the all black Plague Doctor, and others enjoy the limited time season pass skins. Imperial Warrior is a great middle-of-the-road option n that offers great depth of color, custom armor and headpieces, and a slightly different look from a first person view.

  • Recolors are always in the shop for Imperial Warrior.
  • Being executed by an Imperial Warrior Bloodhound is terrifying.
  • V stands for Victory, baby.

Imperial Warrior can be earned with crafting points or purchased directly with Apex Coins.

Blackheart

Blacklung*

Caustic’s Blackheart  is easily the most intimidating skin Apex Legends has to offer. Not only is Caustic’s player model massive, but he takes 15% less damage than other Legends. Seeing a Blackheart barreling down a hallway on bunker is a terrifying sight.

  • Futuristic Game of Thrones aesthetic.
  • Gold mask to represent all your first place finishes.
  • Black leather to show enemies how much of a badass you are.

Blackheart can be earned with crafting points or purchased directly with Apex Coins.

Bunker Buster

Storming the beaches of Capitol City since 1945.

Gibraltar is a rarely used Legend, but he can’t be excluded. Somewhere out there is a Gibraltar main that wants validation from his incredible skins. They’re all amazing, but Bunker Buster stands out among the rest.

  • The 1940s theme is unlike anything else in the game.
  • The low helmet and high rising armor make him look unfriendly and intimidating, which is unlike his other skins.
  • The Toxic Danger sign is on his crotch.

Bunker Buster can be earned with crafting points or purchased directly with Apex Coins.

Vital Signs

Pretty sure that's a car battery on her left leg.

Lifeline’s Vital Signs skin is part of the best skin pairing in the game. Add the Kraber’s Lifesaver, and you’ve got one hell of a combo.

  • Nothing is cooler than seeing Vital Signs with Lifesaver.
  • Nothing.
  • Not even Void Specialist and Superstar.

Vital Signs can be earned with crafting points or purchased directly with Apex Coins.

Old Town

I got the horses in the back.

Oh, I’m gonna take my cloak to the Old Town road,

I’m gonna

Flank ‘till I can’t no more.

  • A ridiculous cowboy outfit is perfect for Mirage’s outgoing personality.
  • It’s a fairly new skin, so not many people have it.
  • Seeing it in battle is a definite treat for more seasoned players.

Old Town is a limited time skin for the Halloween event, so it’s no longer available for purchase.

The Masked Dancer

He's going to enchant enemies with a spell for DCing.

Everyone and their dog has The Hired Gun skin, so seeing The Masked Dancer on the battlefield is fun and almost distracting. The colors are great, even from a distance.

  • The exotic, bird of paradise/islander aesthetic is unique to Apex Legends.
  • Masks in Apex have proven to be extremely popular, and a good way to make the character model feel different.
  • Crypto’s goofy run animation looks even better when he looks like a bird.

The Masked Dancer can be earned with crafting points or purchased directly with Apex Coins

Cyber Security

Blade Runner 2049 anyone?

Wattson generated quite a bit of buzz (pun intended), as she was one of the first new character editions to the game. Her defensive playstyle is unique in a mass of offensive characters.

  • Her player model is right in the middle of the Uncanny Valley, making it the most disturbing skin in the game.
  • Her execution animation makes the skin even more terrifying.
  • Her triangular, clear jacket looks fantastic in loading screens and victory screens.

Cyber Security can be earned with crafting points or purchased directly with Apex Coins.

Angel City Pacer

The perfect pairing of struts and fairings.

Pathfinder’s Angel City Pacer skin was one of his first legendary skins, and among the first set of legendary skins in the game. Many players focused on his skin as their first goal, and it’s remembered in the hearts of seasoned players as an icon before competitive play and the new map.

  • Angel City is a map from the original Titanfall game.
  • Angel City Pacer is the perfect example of a subtle, yet artistic skin.
  • Nostalgia is powerful.

Angel City Pacer can be earned with crafting points or purchased directly with Apex Coins.
