Valorant entered the third Act of Episode 3 on November 2, 2021 with the release of their latest battle pass. New skin collections drop every two weeks, with Magepunk 2.0 being the game's latest feature in the store.

Skins in Valorant offer a variety of features that can be unlocked using Radianite Points (RP) once the skin is purchased from the store. VFX, Animation and Finisher are some of the unique features of weapon cosmetics in Valorant when compared to most other FPS titles. However, skins in the game have no direct impact on a player's performance.

Phantom is one of the top two weapons used across all lobbies in Valorant's competitive matchmaking. Being the go-to option in the game for a good fraction of the community, players are always demanding new skin drops for the Phantom.

Keeping that in mind, Sportskeeda lists the five best Phantom skins available in Episode 3 Act 3 on the basis of - VFX, Finisher, cost effectiveness, and style.
