Weapon skins in Valorant are amazing, to say the least. They not only enhance the weapon's visual appeal, but some skins also include audio effects and animations. Players go as far as to claim that they hit shots better with certain skins, but it's all a placebo effect. Using different weapon skins also changes the way the weapon feels while shooting, all thanks to the audio effects.

These weapon skins often come at a price. Starting from 875 VP ($10), they can reach upwards of 2475 VP ($30) per skin. Although Valorant does provide charming skins, they can surely drill a hole in the pocket. By no means are these skins considered cheap. Moreover, these skins appear on a rotation basis. So just because players want a certain skin, they won’t be able to buy it unless it appears in their store.

Five best pocket friendly Vandal skins in Valorant

Vandal is one of the most used weapons in the game. Considered one of the only two best primary weapons in the game alongside the Phantom, Vandal outperforms the Phantom when it comes to raw damage output. Despite firing slower than the Phantom, the Vandal deals more damage and will do 1 shot-headshot kill at any given range.
