Ever heard of an overpowered sidearm in Valorant? Well, that is exactly what the Frenzy is all about. It is often the first choice of professionals and newbies alike. Everybody likes to have a machine gun at the start of every eco round if one can control the bullet spread. And, while you sport that machine pistol, why not have some awesome Valorant skins for it?
There are many great Valorant Frenzy skins to choose from. For that reason, we have compiled a list of the top frenzy skins available to you in Valorant today. We want to help you understand the best choices available to you.
Brief Frenzy Weapon Overview
Frenzy is included in the pistol category (sidearms). It is a machine pistol that can fire on full automatic. It is a complete substitute for SMGs, and due to its low cost, some people consider it to be too OP in Valorant. Yes, it does sound unbalanced till you have to deal with its low ammo, short range, and bullet spread issues. Nevertheless, if you can overcome these limitations with skill, it is the most OP sidearm in Valorant.
This sidearm works like a charm at close range and medium range. At long range, you usually need to aim for headshots, firing one bullet at a time to control the bullet spread. Beyond being meant mostly for close range, the Frenzy pistol only has 13 bullets per magazine and comes with 3 magazines in total (i.e. 39 total rounds).
The reload speed is quite good, coming in at only a 1.5 seconds delay. It is great for 1v1 combat or spamming through smoke. We hope we’ve level set a little on what the Frenzy weapon should and should not be used for in Valorant. Given its role as an early game machine pistol, it will be a prominent weapon for part of the game, and you will likely want to boast and show off your prowess with one or more great Frenzy Valorant skins.
Ranking the Top Frenzy Skins in Valorant
We have compiled a list of the four best Frenzy skins in Valorant.
1. Elderflame Frenzy
You can’t go wrong with a dragon in your hand instead of an automatic pistol, and the Elderflame frenzy skin is exactly what it sounds like. The Elderflame Frenzy is one of the most premium and VIP skins in all of Valorant. There is nothing else like it, except maybe the Elderflame Vandal skin. Any player who slays with a dragon is someone to be reckoned with.
You may know about this skin’s existence from seeing others use it on their Frenzy in Valorant, but we will still try to round out the appearance in detail. The Elderflame frenzy skin is literally a dragon holding onto the magazine. The covetous dragon’s tail goes around the magazine and also has a face that shoots fire bullets from its mouth.
Furthermore, the dragon has a mixture of lava fire and scale appearance, making it absolutely stunning from every angle. If you are spending extra on this Frenzy Valorant skin, there are going to be upgrades and variations available for you to enjoy.
There are a total of 4 variations in Elderflame frenzy skin, while the default is black dragon and lava fire-red magazine. The second variant is a red dragon with the same lava fire-red magazine, the third variant is a blue dragon with lava fire-blue magazine, and the fourth is a dark black/blue dragon with lava fire-blue magazine.
Upgrades Available for the Elderflame Frenzy Skin in Valorant
Whatever you pick will be amazing, and your Valorant friends will rush towards you, looking out for that jaw-dropping frenzy skin. Coming to the skin upgrades, you get VFX, SFX, animations, and a finisher as well.
When you fire the gun, the dragon head moves, and fire spits out of the mouth in place of bullets. There is a dragon breath-type sound effect, and when you reload, the dragon completely moves around as if it is alive. Did we forget to mention how cool the finisher is? Well, the victim of a finisher is burned by a dragon fire that appears from above. Imagine how cool it looks inside the game.
You can get Elderflame frenzy skin for around 2475 Valorant points. While this is a high price, it is justified by how much effort went into making this weapon skin pop!

2. Glitchpop Frenzy Skin
If Elderflame didn’t exist for Frenzy, Glitchpop would have been on top. The Glitchpop Frenzy looks absolutely mouth-watering at first sight, and to justify it, many professional players have it equipped. As everyone knows, “Glitchpop gives you aimbot” the pop sound, physical appearance, and upgrade options are insane here.
When you look at Glitchpop, you see a funky-looking frenzy with RGB holographic effects everywhere. It has a lot of color combinations and comes with that iconic unicorn sticker on the side. You will be amazed to hear why that unicorn exists, which we will discuss later.
So, coming to the point of variations, you will be presented with a total of four varieties, with the iconic purple/blue/cyan being its default one. The second variant comes with that red/blue tone with a change of pattern, the third has a changed pattern with a red/white shade, and finally, the fourth variant has a golden/black shade with a trigonal pattern.
Honestly, the most famous is that default one, followed by the red-shaded Glitchpop Frenzy skin. All others also look amazing, as it is a matter of preference over the looks. You get everything here in terms of upgrades; there are VFX, animations, SFX, GFX, and finisher improvements as well.
When you fire the gun, there is that glitch pop sound with holographic effects, which is the same for reloading. Remember when we mentioned unicorns? Yes, that unicorn appears when the finisher activates, and you have to look up to get the full image of that RGB holographic unicorn.
You can get Glitchpop frenzy skin for around 2175 Valorant points. This slightly reduced cost compared to the Elderflame skin echoes our opinion that it is only slight second to the other skin.
3. Blast X Frenzy
You might be surprised to see Blast X Frenzy taking the third spot in our list of the best Frenzy skins in Valorant. There is a close competition between the third and the fourth one, so stick with us to the fourth to figure out why.
First of all, the Blast X is unique (really unique). It comes with special effects and sounds that no other skin has. It is genuinely based on Nerf theme and looks as if someone made the Blast X collection out of Nerf guns. For that reason, some people like it, while others don’t even stand the sight of a Blast X weapon skin.
Still, it is amongst the best Valorant skins that Riot Games came up with for the Frenzy. Being a Nerf gun that you probably can see at the toy stores, rubber bullets are coming out after firing. The sound is exactly what you did imagine – a plastic Nerf-like toy firing rubber bullets out an end.
Being one of the greatest, there are four variants you can shift to, while the default one is green and purple with a white grip. The second variant is a blue/green tone with a black grip, the third variant is a blue/green/red tone with a yellow grip, and the fourth variant has that ping/purple/green tone with a purple grip.

Upgrades to the BlastX Frenzy Skin in Valorant
The color combinations sound interesting, but the theme matches exactly with the variants. On the upgrades side, you will have everything ranging from VFX, SFX, animations, effects, GFX, and finisher.
When the finisher activates, the enemy gets wrapped in a gift wrap. Did we just forget to mention the reload and equip effect? The best thing about this gun is that when you reload the gun or equip it back, there is a gift wrap effect, which is the most beautiful thing you will see ever in your life.
You can get BlastX Frenzy skin for around 2175 Valorant points.
4. Prime 2.0 Frenzy Valorant Weapon Skin
You probably saw it coming from the start of the list. Whenever there is a list of top skins, Prime will likely be in the top 5 for every Valorant gun, and the frenzy skin is no exception. Being a close competitor to the third one, Prime 2.0 Frenzy has a clean, shiny, and edgy finish.
The Prime 1.0 was the star of the series, but sadly it didn’t come up with a frenzy skin. But soon, because of its popularity, Prime 2.0 came up with a frenzy, and boy, it looks fantastic. If you don’t want an “off the roof” type skin with funky effects, then prime 2.0 will be your best friend. That is why we have it on fourth instead of third!
Don’t worry, it has all the variants and upgrades you will get in other skins on the list. There are four variants, with golden/white/black being its default. The second variant has a black/chrome copper/black tone to it, the third one has a green/blue shade, and the fourth one comes with a combination of orange/red/black shades.
In terms of upgrades, you will get VFX, SFX, graphics, animations, effects, and a finisher. There is a flash of gunfire with a soothing sound. When you reload the gun, there is an energy crystal that your character changes and inserts back into its holder. Finally, when the finisher activates, a bull emerges that head-butts the victim into the air.
You can get the Prime 2.0 frenzy skin for around 1775 Valorant points (the cheapest on the list).
