The Operator in Valorant is a clever wordplay on the AWP from Counter Strike, and does the same job of getting one-hit kills. The Operator is the premium sniper rifle in the game with equally great skins, which ensures that players can increase their score with style.
The Operator is the most powerful and costly weapon in Valorant’s arsenal. It is a must buy when there is no a problem with the economy of the team, and it is a full buy round. It becomes easier to get first blood and kills from a distance with this weapon.
Initially, fans did not like the Operator, as they deemed it too overpowered. However, Riot Games has managed to balance out the weapon to suit the in-game meta to an almost perfect level in Episode 4.
As of Episode 4 Act 3, Valorant has a variety of amazing skins for the Operator that vary in Editions and are available through the in-game store. This article will list all of the available Operator skins that have been released for players looking for new skins to complement their sniping skills.
