Riot Games has had plenty of time since Valorant's first appearance to develop unique weapon skins. Cosmetics are a fun way for gamers in the FPS title to be able to express themselves. With the Guardian being one of the most popular weapons in the game, there are several skins available for the rifle.
Since the start, Valorant has used a free-to-play model and as a result, Riot Games has commercialized the game by selling skins and cosmetics for real money. Many Guardian skins have been released since Valorant's release in June 2020.
