Splitgate, released in Infinite Beta form less than several months ago, is the latest multiplayer FPS title making noise in the gaming community. Splitgate is a welcome addition to the multiplayer space, noted for its fast-paced gameplay coming off as a fusion between Halo and Portal. It is a refreshing addition to a space filled with games that are virtually indistinguishable.
We have already talked in length about the best guns to use in Splitgate, but weapons aren’t everything. If you are going to be running and gunning, you may as well do it in style.
There will undoubtedly be many more skins to come in the future, but for now, here are our picks for the ten best character skins in Splitgate.
10. Legendary: Shogun- Gold
Available for 1200 Splitcoins, the Legendary variant of the Shogun skin, the Gold Shogun stands out far more than its’ Epic counterpart Midnight. This skin reminds of Jorge-052 from Halo Reach, due to the bulkiness.
There aren’t as much distinctive details as I would like from a set of Shogun armor. I would say lack of full commitment to themes is the biggest gripe I have with skins in Splitgate right now. But nevertheless, this is a pretty fantastic skin.
9. Legendary: Oliver- Clay
The Oliver skins are Oliver Twist from Oliver & Company if he grew up, became anthropomorphic, and got teleported into an FPS video game. The Oliver skins contrast widely with most of the other skins in the game. While many others draw inspiration from games like Halo and Dead Space (In my opinion), Oliver looks like someone from the 1920s on his way to see a Babe Ruth game.
Available for 1200 Splitcoins, the Clay variant of the Oliver skin is one of the most sought after in Splitgate. It looks like what would happen if Oliver took a swim into Willy Wonka’s chocolate lake and the milk chocolate stuck to his body permanently. It stands out but does so in a good way. It also makes me crave chocolate. That may or may not be a good thing, depending on what I have in my house at the moment.
8. Legendary: Old Bones- Gold
The name Old Bones might lead you to believe that this would be some skeletal skin, but far from it. Another one of Splitgate’s awesome all-gold skins, the gold variant takes the pretty pedestrian, standard Old Bones and gives it some new glow.
Gold Bones looks like a fusion between the MCU’s Yellowjacket suit and the battle armor from Haze (A mildly awful FPS from the PlayStation 3 days). It definitely deserves Legendary status and 1200 of your Splitcoins.
7. Legendary: Rhino- Gold
6. Legendary: T-200- Gold
5. Legendary: Vulture- ROFL
4. Legendary: Assassin- Gold
3. Legendary: Chance- Major
Taking a break from the gold, Yukon Cornelius now has his eyes on silver. And no better all silver skin exists in Splitgate than the Major Chance skin.
Just like our previously listed Oliver skin, Chance stands out for not being just another Sci-Fi-inspired combat suit. Instead, he’s someone else.
No, not Oliver Queen from CW’s Arrow.
A crazy miner from Mad Max or Borderlands? A Legendary raider from Fallout 4? That guy Kevin from Sin City? There are a lot of ways I could describe this skin, but one word suits it best: awesome. The noir-like look of this skin does wonders for adding variety to the roster of Splitgate, and we hope 1047 games create more sets like this in the future.
