Sentinels say these Valorant weapon skins give you an aimbot
Skins allow you to kill more.
To succeed in Valorant, you need a clear focus, in-depth strategies, and excellent team coordination.
But having something extra doesn’t hurt either – like a perfectly timed lineup or a Valorant weapon skin with custom sound and visual effects that make you feel like a star.
Even pro gamers swear by certain weapon skins. In a recent behind-the-scenes video from their bootcamp ahead of the VCT NA Last Chance Qualifier, Sentinels players revealed their favorite in-game weapon skins that help them play better.
According to them, these skins are just different.
The Valorant Sentinels list names their favorite Valorant weapon skins
Shahzeb “ShahZaM” Khan immediately chose the Ion beam as his favorite skin set. In fact, the 28-year-old waited five months for Sheriff Ion to show up at his Valorant in-game store.
However, Sentinels coach Shane “Rawkus” Flaherty is biased towards the First vandal. It’s one of the best skins in the game, he said, and ShahZaM also agreed.
“I always come back to Prime Vandal,” ShahZaM said. “Feels like you just multi-killed with the Prime Vandal.”
The Reaver Vandal also received a special mention from the Sentinels game leader. “With the Rampager Vandal, I just get a tap,” he said. “And if you take the Reaver Vandal from someone else, it gives you better aim.”
That said, the popular RGX package didn’t get much love from The Boys in Red as ShahZaM stated his dislike of the skin pack. “If you drop an RGX Vandal on me, I’ll give it to someone else and buy a gun,” he said.
Nor did Tyson “TenZ” Ngo favor the set of RGB-inspired skins. “I’ve never felt more than with the RGX Vandal,” said TenZ.
On the other hand, Michael “Shroud” Grzesiek was surprised to hear his teammates’ opinions on the RGX pack, especially since it was his go-to weapon skin.
“I use all the RGX. Everything,” Shroud concluded.
Elsewhere, Michael “dapr” Gulino selected inspired Japanese folklore Oni Bundle as his favorite weapon skin, while new addition Jordan “Zellsis” Montemurro chose the alien look Spline set.
It’s not even the fanciest skins that win all the time. In a surprising twist, TenZ added that the Recon Ghost – a military-style set that’s one of the most realistic in the game – actually gives him an aimbot.
|SENTINEL PLAYER/COACH||FAVORITE VALORANT WEAPON SKIN|
|TenZ||Reaver Vandal, Recon Ghost|
|ShahZaM||Ion Operator, Prime Vandal, Singularity Phantom|
|Rawkus||Prime Vandal, Recon Phantom, Gaia Vandal|
You can catch the Sentinels in action again at the VCT NA Last Chance Qualifiers in August.
