2022 brings a lot of beautiful skins in online multiplayer games, and some skins are rated as excellent.
With online multiplayer games becoming popular, there is no shortage of different genres and styles of play to choose from. Battle royale titles offer intense, highly competitive matches that ensure a high adrenaline rush in late-game battles, while co-op titles encourage players to work together and communicate properly. Shooters reward targeting skills, while fighting games allow players to showcase their expertise with a character’s skill set. Despite the different genres, cosmetics/skins are a priority for most multiplayer titles.
For developers and publishers, cosmetics are often a source of money, but they are also an important way for players to express themselves. Throughout 2022, dozens of categories of memorable items have been released for beloved multiplayer titles like Fortnite and promising new titles like MultiVersus. From cool crossovers to stunning original designs, heavy skin collectors have a lot to strive for. In no particular order, here are the best skins released this year.
Multiversus – Cake the Cat
Some of the MultiVersus skins are skins that add new dialogue to the character, but Cake the Cat goes above and beyond and introduces a whole new voice actor to the character. Unlocked at the end of the Battle Pass, this gender-swapped version of Jake the Dog was created by Ice King in Adventure Time, and fans will be delighted when Roz Ryan returns as Fionna’s friend. All of her sassy is captured in new dialogue, with different winning and losing poses. With Cake’s visual design perfectly captured and the upcoming spin-off series Adventure Time: Fionna and Cake making the skins particularly relevant, it’s arguably MultiVersus’ best.
Overwatch 2 – Cyberdemon Genji
While the community has criticized Overwatch 2’s Mythic skins and their limited options, they still deserve their classification and serve as some of the best skins in the game. Of the two releases released so far, Cyberdemon Genji seems to be a bit more popular, with every aspect of the hero changed by this skin. Unlocked at the end of Season 1’s Battle Pass, Cyberdemon Genji’s Dragonblade Ultimate features special effects, his voice is completely altered, and the player can choose between several masks, bodies, and combinations. different colors. The part of the mask that opens to reveal a glowing green skull is a highlight, adding another special feature to the already detailed skin.
Fortnite – Darth Vader
Fortnite has passed many IPs, but there are a few that Epic Games keeps coming back to for new product launches. Besides Marvel and DC , Star Warsis the film with the most consistent features, with sequel characters like Rey and Kylo Ren appearing before fan favorites like Obi-Wan Kenobi join the roster. Battle Pass in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3, Darth Vader did not disappoint. The Sith Lord has shown off Fortnite’s art style very well, with his distinct helmet featuring sparkling eyes as fans expect. His center console has several separate buttons, and the player can use Vader’s lightsaber in the game.
Genshin Impact – Dark Crimson Diluc
While there are some interesting lore around the world of Genshin Impact, it is ultimately the characters who drive the game’s story and make it the successful title it is today. Praying on banners would be much less enjoyable without the lovable cast of characters and Diluc being just one member of a stacked list. Like the name suggests, Red Dead of Night emphasizes red, with Diluc’s alternate outfit matching his fiery hair. Besides the red and black tailcoat, he wears a gray waistcoat with a phoenix insignia. The chain on the back also ensures that the five-star outfit looks great from the back, and with some unique dialogue to go with it, this outfit is totally worthy of 1980’s Creation Stone.
Fall Guys – SpongeBob
Since first starting to make crossovers, Fall Guys hasn’t slowed down, as Mediatonic has made everything from Doom Slayer to Godzilla a reality in the game. However, SpongeBob SquarePants might just be the best skin ever released for this battle royale title. Mediatonic gives fans a square top and bottom, with a fun character casual outfit and a hole-in-the-wall body that looks just like it does in games like The Cosmic Shake. His crooked smile, long nose and positive attitude are perfectly reflected on the skin. Overall, SpongeBob is well worth the time it took to complete the Battle Pass Season 3.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 – Eth.3n
In recent years, Call of Duty titles have included cosmetic packs, and some of the most popular ones are reference packs. While the Kill Bill and Hitman packs are fun in Black Ops Cold War, as is the Punisher-inspired Vanguard skin for Wade, the Warfighters: Eth.3n pack directly appeals to the most casual players. The entire pack is themed around Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, with the collection’s central skin focusing on Ethan. One of the main characters in Infinite Warfare’s underrated campaign, players quickly fall in love with the cyborg Ethan thanks to his unique personality. Through the use of a cleverly designed helmet, the helmets have an Eth look.
Apex Legends – Sea Legs Octane
One of Apex Legends’ most unique visuals, Octane, received the Sea Legs skin during Season 13’s Gaiden Event. While it might look like an odd set of skins to many players, but it’s extremely special for anime fans, as this outfit is a near-perfect rendition of Monkey D. Luffy in One Piece. The character’s signature straw hat appears alongside the mask, while the gloves, exposed chest, jacket, and shorts are also present. With One Piece being such an iconic anime, this skin proved to be a huge hit with players.
Sackboy: A Big Adventure – Kratos
While Apex Legends goes the unofficial route with One Piece-inspired skins, Sackboy: A Big Adventure has consistently featured fully licensed skins based on other PlayStation exclusives. Whenever there is a new release like Returnal or Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart, free skins are added as DLC to celebrate the occasion. While God of War Ragnarok received three skins, Freya and Atreus both look great, it is Kratos who is the best skin of the trio. Besides his red face tattoo, Sackboy also wears a massive beard, creating a rather funny sight. Some bracelets and armor are also visible, although the standout feature is the Leviathan ax, which will make mischievous slaps a lot more terrifying.
Dead by Daylight – Sheva
Dead by Daylight’s two Resident Evil crossovers brought a variety of content to the multiplayer game. Albert Wesker and Nemesis play fearsome killers, while Ada Wong, Rebecca Chambers, Leon Kennedy and Jill Valentine play survivors. However, thanks to some special skins for Leon and Jill that cost 1485 Auric Cells each, the player can also become Carlos Oliveira and Sheva Alomar. Of these two legendary skins, Sheva’s is the more memorable, as her design is a big difference from Jill’s appearance. While it would be interesting enough if the character swap were purely for skins, it also comes with unique dialogues to allow players to sound like Sheva,
Fortnite – Spider-Gwen
Fortnite has two skins that rank as one of the best skins of 2022 showing how dominant the title is in the cosmetics sector. While Darth Vader serves as the best Star Wars costume to appear in this year’s game, Spider-Gwen has proven to be Marvel’s most exciting addition. Boasting a flashy white and black suit with pink eyes, the outfit looks as good as it does in her comics, ensuring that she doesn’t look out of place on the island of Fortnite. After unlocking Spider-Gwen in the Battle Pass Chapter 3 Season 4, players can receive an undisclosed variant as an extra bonus, allowing for several more options. With the maskless Gwen looking like her from Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse,
