Competition brings progress, a very well known axiom in business and economics. So having a shooter like VALORANT next to our beloved Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is very important: Valve’s developers start acting a little more lively, the players are learning both ways, and the community can see how the skins look in another esports shooter and draw ideas from there.
After all, s1mple spend his entire summer vacation in this game! So it’s definitely worth at least trying.
VALORANT should be respected also for its unusual approach to weapon-design and skin models. Yes, they might be expensive to purchase, but they look very epic and change a lot. CS.MONEY Blog compiled a selection of ten skins that already exist in CS:GO and would fit perfectly into the slightly futuristic world of Riot Games’ FPS, which also has a place for mythology and mysteries.
VALORANT has a silenced pistol too, and this handsome USP-S skin would merge perfectly with the overall black and red game design leitmotif. And, of course, it has to be a StatTrak, since VALORANT loves high-tech devices. This CS beauty can be acquired for only five dollars.
This pretty cheap but nevertheless epic and evil Deagle hints: one bullet for one body. Yes, it is not a colorful and bright skin, yet it could become a villain, an antagonist, a kind of universal evil in the world of VALORANT.
A futuristic gun priced from two to ten bucks can be paired with the Cyrex USP-S mentioned above: black and red colors, tech-style and even the font on the barrel hints that it has to be transitioned to VAL. Maybe R8 Revolver will finally become a popular and important weapon there?
Looking as it came straight from Split map, this urban and technological rifle fits perfectly into the design of both shooters. And it’s very cheap!
Recognized, respected, good old Galil ECO fits all the rules of VALORANT weapon design: bright and simple, and besides, it carries an important semantic in it. Perfect!
Phantom fits into the group of standard sci-fi futuristic skins, along with R8 Reboot and USP-S Cyrex. It would have been even a stock model in VALORANT. But wait, VAL already has a gun very similar to SG553 and it is literally called Phantom!
By the way, in VALORANT, machine guns are a thing, they are popular and useful. And this NEGEV, thanks to its coloring, would feel like a native: bright yellow colors spiced with soft turquoise. And the price is super pleasing: only up to five dollars!
Another serious futuristic skin made for urban skirmishes in narrow spaces. Trigon isn’t cheap, starting from 12 bucks, but it looks furious. Animate the details and it’s good to go!
UMP45 Momentun echoes VALORANT with its colors. What else needed?
Personally, we prefer the karambit knife, which is also represented in VALORANT, but in general, any other knife from the Autotronic series fits into the group of slightly technological skins. And Shadow Daggers are also great for some VAL characters in terms of lore.
What skin do you think would ideally migrate to VALORANT from CS:GO?
