[Top 5] Valorant Best Judge Skins That Look Freakin' Awesome

Kay/O Holding a Judge

The Judge is one of the best, if not the best, effective close-range weapons. And depending on your RNG it might even be a good medium-range weapon, but only in the hands of your enemies…

That being said, if you’re not a fan of how the base skin looks or if you just want a fancy-looking one, we got you covered!


5. Luxe

Luxe Judge


Starting off this list, we have the Luxe judge. If you don’t want fancy effects, but you do want a sleek-looking Judge, this is the skin for you. As the name implies, the skin gives off a premium aesthetic. The color scheme is simple but elegant, white and blue.

The skin truly shines when you notice all the little details. Details such as:

  • The added textures on the metal bits
  • The glossy finish on the paint
  • The soft-looking leather grip
  • The subtle, yet noticeable, 3D model changes

It’s not much, but it is a great-looking skin for people who are looking for that aesthetic. Not to mention that the skin is also extremely cheap, especially when compared to other skins on this list. 

This skin will set you back 875 VP, with no added upgrade costs.

You can take a look at all the details of the skin here:



4. Snowfall

The Snowfall Collection


If the Luxe Judge isn’t doing it for you, and you want something more festive, the Snowfall Judge has you covered! Even though the Snowfall skin uses the same 3D model, it’s still a great skin. Why is that the case?

Well, you’re getting tiny Christmas decorations inside the gun! These decorations include:

  • Christmas trees
  • Gifts
  • A tiny house
  • Christmas lights that flicker

Plus, this isn’t a “green screen” skin. The gun itself is transparent, and inside of it, you can find the objects sitting on a pretty thick blanket of snow. And yes, these are all separate 3D models inside the gun! 

To get your hands on this skin you’ll have to pay 1275 VP, with no added upgrade costs. With that price, you also get a day and night cycle inside the gun, and snow falling from the sky. It’s a pretty good deal if you ask me!

3. Celestial

Celestial Judge


Keeping the festive theme for our number 3 spot, we have the Celestial Judge. If Christmas is not your thing, but you still want a holiday-themed skin, VALORANT’s Celestial skin line has you covered. This collection also includes the Judge, and it’s a pretty good-looking Judge!

Even though this skin uses the same 3D model as the default skin, it still manages to look amazing. Mainly because of the artwork on the gun, and the effects that accompany that artwork. The shape and size of the Judge works well with the stylized mountainous scene drawn onto the gun, and the effects are just pretty to look at. 

These effects include:

  • Moving clouds
  • Falling stars (or meteors depending on who you ask)
  • Moving waves
  • A moving sun

It’s may not seem like much, but if you’re a fan of the Lunar New Year, this might just be the skin for you! The only unfortunate part is that this skin costs more than the Snowfall judge, being priced at 1775 VP, with no added upgrade costs.

2. Glitchpop

Glitchpop Judge - Blue Variant


Glitchpop needs no introduction for most VALORANT players. It’s considered one of the best-looking skin lines in the entire game. The dystopian aesthetic captivated the player base the day the skins were announced.  And this dystopian-looking collection also happens to include a Judge! 

The Glitchpop Judge has all the bells and whistles of all the other Glitchpop skins:

  • Lots of moving parts
  • A hologram on the side of the gun that changes every time you equip it
  • An added glitch effect when you equip the gun
  • A futuristic sounding firing effect
  • An amazing kill banner and finisher

And that’s good, but it doesn’t matter if the skin itself doesn’t look good. Fortunately, that’s not the case. The skin looks amazing, it makes the Judge feel more powerful and more satisfying to use, and the fade effect looks great on a large shotgun! Pair that with all the effects, and you get one of the best Judge skins in Valorant!

To get it, you’ll have to pay 2175 VP and 30 Radianite Points for the upgrades. You’ll have to pay 15 extra points for every variant you want to unlock.

1. Elderflame

Elderflame Judge - Dark Variant


To no one’s surprise, the Elderflame Judge takes the number 1 spot on this list.


Because it’s a dragon! A dragon that incinerates your enemies on command!

The skin just looks amazing. Having a living, breathing dragon never gets old. And the Judge does it better than some of the other skins. The bulkier frame of the Judge translates into a beefier dragon, and some people like that more than a huge Wyvern. There are lots of great-looking effects that come with this skin, but you really need to upgrade it. Unless you want to have a stiff dragon.

If you decide to upgrade tho, you’ll get:

  • A unique equip animation where the dragon crawls on your arm
  • A reload animation where the dragon snatches the magazine
  • A breathing animation for the dragon
  • A more powerful sounding gun
  • An amazing kill banner and finisher

It’s overall a really good skin, especially if you want something that’s more fantasy-focused. If you like dragons, this is the skin for you. Just don’t think too much about where the trigger is… And if you’re neutral about dragons, you can still appreciate all the work that has been put into this skin, there really isn’t another skin like it.

That being said, the best Judge skin also has the highest price. You’ll have to pay 2475 VP if you want to get it. You also have to add 30 Radianite Points if you don’t want to own the forbidden stiff dragon.
