Frag with style.
Knife skins are perfect for sending a message and playing mind games with your opponents. They might come with a hefty price tag, but they’re well worth the investment.
Riot disappointed fans with its lackluster skins in the game’s closed beta in April, but the devs have upped the ante and made improvements across the board following VALORANT’s official launch. Now, knives have new animations, colors, shapes, and sizes—and there’s more to come.
Here are all of the knife skins in VALORANT and how to get them.
Reaver – 3,550 VP
The Reaver takes on a gothic theme. Its sharp edges and its purple hilt add up to one impressive knife. It’s simple, clean, and deadly. An Omen main, especially, would look good with one of these bad boys in their hands.
Imperium – 2,550 VP
The Imperium’s rich golds and emerald greens stand out among the crowd. It’s noticeably smaller than the other knives, but it makes up for that with its sophisticated look. Its golden dragon only adds to its aesthetic.
Luxe – 1,750 VP
Prism – 2,550 VP
The Prism is one of VALORANT’s slickest-looking knives. It’s dark blue with shades of purple and it looks like it came straight out of Counter-Strike.
Prime Axe – 3,550 VP
The Prime Axe breaks the mold. It’s a great big golden ax with a purple hilt. What more could you ask for? Its animation is also drastically different than its contenders and chops just like an ax.
Sovereign – 3,550 VP
The Sovereign looks like it came straight out of The Lord of the Rings. What more could you ask for? It glows, it has a nice shiny bronze finish, and it’s absolutely huge.
Kingdom – available through Act 1’s battle pass
he Kingdom has a similar look and feel to the default knife, but it includes silver and a streak of bright yellow. It’s affordable and easily attained through the battle pass, and it’s accessible to almost everyone.
Elderflame – 4,950 VP
Oni – 3,550 VP
Hivemind – available through Act 2’s battle pass
Glitchpop – 4,350 VP
Nebula – 3,550 VP
Spline – 3,550 VP
How to get knives in VALORANT
Each of the knives on this list are available to buy from VALORANT’s store.
A knife skin can cost up to 3,550 VALORANT points on its own, but in a bundle, it’s significantly cheaper. You can buy a knife skin together with a range of gun skins for around 5,325 VP ($34.99). This varies.
When sold separately, knives go for as little as 1,750 VP. If you’re keen on bagging yourself a knife and you’re not interested in buying a bundle, simply wait for your favorite knife to be featured in the store.
Weapon skins rotate in the store on a daily basis but knives usually take longer to make an appearance.
