Here are the best melee skins in VALORANT

Even though VALORANT‘s knifing mechanic doesn’t always work properly, at least players can count on cool melee designs and fascinating animations.

Players can take on almost any form of melee weaponry available, with knives being at the forefront of the up-close and personal fighting technique. Teammates will always get to see your melee weapons. Guns are situational, and knives are forever.

Half the time when you’re spectating teammates, they’ll be pressing the 1 and 3 keys. The last thing you want to look at is the default knife.

Once you’ve donned your new knife, it’ll always be in your inventory.

Here are the best melee skins in VALORANT.

Elderflame Dagger

There’s nothing better than having the power of dragons at your fingertips.

The Elderflame Collection, VALORANT’s first-and-only Ultra Edition skin line, lets players wield dragon-inspired weapons. Some weapon skins distract players and cause the biggest of whiffs. The Elderflame Dagger is seamless and there for a good time. It doesn’t distract players, it just sits perfectly in your agent’s hand waiting for its moment.

Once you’ve equipped this bad boy, the dagger flips showcasing its deadly flames and embers following its trajectory. It pairs perfectly with your dragon phantoms and vandals. While this is a pricey melee weapon, it just looks incredible.

The Elderflame Dagger’s distinct look is more than enough of a reason to purchase this melee weapon and is a must-buy for fantasy VALORANT enthusiasts.

Oni Claw

The Oni Claw really helps you sink your teeth into VALORANT.

The Oni collection is a fantastic piece of art. The Japanese folklore-inspired weaponry is a classy and deadly addition to your arsenal. Players will grasp this demon-like ogre and pierce enemies with its sharp fangs. Users can also upgrade the weapon, unleashing its green spiritual aura which leaves a trail following with each swing.

BlastX Polymer Knifetech Coated Knife

The BlastX Knife isn’t flashy, but it gets the job done. Fortunately, for BlastX users, plastic or rubber does the same amount of damage as a sharp knife. This knife is suitable for all ages and still works on the battlefield as well as any other knife. This melee weapon has some variants to go along with it, the Magepunk, Ego, and Winterwunderland give players all the choices they could desire with one knife.

Celestial Fan

The Celestial Fan is, without a doubt, the best melee skin to use on a hot summer day. The Celestial Collection was created to celebrate the Lunar New Year, with the fan featuring an ox on the gold handle. The beautiful design showcases majestic clouds, mountains, with a bright sun looming over the horizon.

It’s a great way to cool off, as when players inspect their weapons, the fan animation starts. It also works well as a weapon, don’t let the imagery fool you.

Glitchpop Axe

VALORANT is home to several axes, but none are as spectacular as the Glitchpop Axe. The axes in VALORANT are an underappreciated melee weapon. While a lot of the knives and hell even the baseball bats are cool, this Glitchpop cyberpunk aesthetic is all you could want in a knife.

The neon hues and holograms spice up the sometimes boring melee weapons, providing a futuristic and appealing look that most fans can get behind.

Gaia’s Wrath

Here are the best melee skins in VALORANT

Gaia’s Wrath is a beautiful axe. The wooden handle with the red gem inside the hilt adds so much detail to a simple design. The red stands out against the white handle, providing a gorgeous contrast to the Game of Thrones-like tree trunk. This is definitely one of the more simple but elegant knives in the VALORANT collection
