Everyone has been in a situation where they messed up the Vandal spray & faced the wrath of their teammates. Most people prefer Phantom over Vandal in Valorant, primarily because of the spray control & the rate of fire of 11 rounds per second that the rifle offers.
The spray pattern is easy to learn & the damage varies from range to range. Another significant aspect of Phantom that makes the weapon this popular is the wide range of skins. Valorant has some of the best skin collections for its inventory in the gaming industry.
From the Ion collection to the most popular Reaver collection, we have seen the best designs & animations a gun can have.
But when we talk about Phantom skins, you can see some incredible art with skins like Oni. So here are the best Phantom skins in Valorant that you must have in your inventory.
Note that these are purchasable from the Valorant store for real money. You can even purchase the battle pass that comes every now & then for a collection of skins instead of just one.
Best Phantom Skins in VALORANT
Let’s look at the best Phantom skins in Valorant that you must try if you use the weapon:
Oni Phantom – The GOAT
If you’ve played Valorant even for a little bit & know something about Phantom skins, you know what place Oni Phantom holds in the heart of players.
There’s no list of best Phantom skins in Valorant without Oni Phantom being the #1. The Japanese-inspired artwork on it with slick animation is a treat to the eyes.
The skin comes in 4 variants, everyone being better than the other. No other skin comes even close to Oni in Phantom skins.
It got released in the 1.04 patch as a bundle costing nearly 7100 Valorant Points (VP), whereas the Oni Phantom skin alone costs a 1775 VP.
Released in the early days of Valorant, Ruination had some of the best skins in Valorant, including the Phantom. It has the most premium feeling in Phantom skins with the wavy dark animation that it carries.
If you love the Reaver collection, you’ll like Ruination, as the animation has that similar smoky effect. The Phantom skin comes in four different variants. The first one is the default blue-green color which is considered the best among them. Other variants are purple, orange, & green.
Ruination Phantom costs 2175 Valorant Points (VP) & the entire bundle is around 8700 Valorant Points (VP).
Ion is one of the most successful Valorant skin bundle packs. The Ion Phantom has a clean white finish & a futuristic design with a glowing blue orb in the middle. Even the SFX, while shooting, is a pleasure to the ears.
When you reload any Ion skin, the orb stops glowing & then again energizes after the magazine is loaded, which shows the attention to detail by the artists. On the finisher kill, an orb similar to that in the gun appears & absorbs the enemy.
The Ion Phantom costs 1775 Valorant Points (VP) & the complete bundle is purchasable for 7100 Valorant Points (VP).
Spectrum Phantom – Zedd collection
The Spectrum skin collection in Valorant got launched in collaboration with the famous DJ Zedd. He designed the SFX for all the skins in Spectrum. The Spectrum Phantom has a premium white finish & Zedd’s logo in the middle.
The finisher animation on this Phantom skin is one of the best. The entire environment transforms into a club with lights & a sick beat. But, due to the collaboration, the Spectrum bundle is one of the most expensive ones in Valorant.
The Spectrum Phantom skins cost 2675 Valorant Points (VP) & the bundle is available for a whopping 10,700 Valorant Points (VP).
The Glitchpop bundle is no less than an aimbot for the weapons. As the name suggests, this Phantom skin has a glitchy VFX & a satisfying SFX. The holographic design gives off a futuristic vibe to the skin.

Singularity Phantom has that sci-fi look, with the skin having a disintegrated design. The finisher animation & concept seems inspired by a black hole. The environment turns into space with a black hole forming behind the enemy’s body.
Whenever you equip the Singularity Phantom, the fragmented body comes together to form the skin. It has three variants other than the default one, namely, purple, blue & red.
The Singularity Phantom costs 2175 Valorant Points (VP) & the entire pack is purchasable for 8700 Valorant Points (VP).
