The best skins for Wattson in Apex Legends

Dressing for the shock and awe.

Apex Legends players who mainly use the electrifying Wattson are bound to feel the need to spend thousands of Apex Coins each season. Unlike most characters, the Legend often earns brand new skins that dramatically alter her design and the deployable pylon on her back. So far, these cosmetics have morphed her into a cyborg, a knight, a Naruto look-a-like, and much more. But, as there are over 70 skins for you to choose from, finding the greatest isn’t easy. So, here are the absolute best Wattson skins that have come to the battle royale, listed in alphabetical order.

Bionic Wonder

Released as a spin-off of the beloved Cyber Security skin, Bionic Wonder substitutes its predecessor’s all-black style for a neon yellow jacket and blue spacesuit. What makes this Legendary skin so great, though, is that Wattson’s head appears similar to a cyborg from I, Robot. Thus, its expressionless pale face should certainly place fear into all opponents that see it up close. That said, the skin has not been on the market since August 2021, but buyers will need 10,000 Legend Tokens and Cyber Security once it returns.

Chaos Conductor certainly is not a rare skin and that works in favor for those desiring one of the Legend’s most detailed costumes yet. The cosmetic transforms Wattson into somewhat of a futuristic knight, lending her a sci-fi outfit with steel knee pads, body armor, and a silver helmet. Chaos Conductor last made an appearance in the Apex store in April 2022 and could be bought with 1,800 Apex Coins or 2,400 Crafting Metals.

Cyber Punked

A skin like the Legendary Cyber Punked changes so much about the character that is it hard to tell it is even Wattson. Players will first notice the cosmetic gives her large red horns, a lengthy black jacket and even a stylish eyepatch. But, with a closer look, you will find parts of Wattson’s arms and legs are see-through, revealing her interior being made of wires and gears. Cyber Punked was only available to players who progressed through the Season 4 Battle Pass, though we are hopeful a recolored version lands in the store at some point.

Electric Royalty

Some of Wattson’s greatest skins even stretch lower than Legendary rarity. Somehow only classified as Epic, Electric Royalty paints the Legend’s iconic jacket and bodysuit with purple stripes. Though, its best trait is that it features golden wires and patterns along her sides that truly make the skin shine. The dazzling cosmetic was an exclusive offering to those with an Amazon Prime Gaming membership during October 2021. So, Electric Royalty may be as good as gone for players not able to claim it.

Kawaii Voltage

Rare skins are typically quite bland, but Kawaii Voltage is the lone cosmetic that says otherwise. It alters her base style with a sky blue jacket and pink pants, along with colorful striped gloves and socks. However, the skin is adored for the abundance of star and heart patches placed all around her back and jacket. Although a recolor should not be ruled out anytime soon, Kawaii Voltage was only available in an Arenas event tracker in June 2021.

Rocket Scientist

Widely considered to be her best cosmetic, Rocket Scientist is a Legendary skin that came alongside the Season 8 Anniversary Collection Event. It is made up of scarlet red and gold body armor, though there are also blue pulsating lights that glow on her chest and sides. Meanwhile, the skin even comes with tiny wings that sit on each end of her deployable pylon. Rocket Scientist has already made one store appearance in 2022, so its return could come later this year.

Ruby Joules

Ruby Joules is another cyborg-themed Legendary skin that dresses the Legend in nothing but Ruby-colored clothes and a sleek black deployable pylon. However, it can come off as terrifying with Wattson sporting red warpaint around her eyes. It is debated as one of Wattson’s rarest skins since the cosmetic has not been available since Season 5 in May 2020. If it does manage to come back, Ruby Joules can be crafted with 6,500 Legend Tokens and the Strange Attractor skin.

With Ruby Joules becoming so difficult to obtain, some players may find it best to simply settle for its spin-off skin, Strange Attractor. We don’t blame them either, as it is a much more vibrant take on the character. The Legendary skin consists of an orange and yellow one-piece suit with her coat entirely covered in black spikes. Better yet, Strange Attractor is an extremely easy cosmetic to own. Players can unlock it through the Legends menu at any time for either 1,800 Apex Coins or 1,200 Crafting Materials.

The Warrior Empress

The first cosmetic that comes to mind when speaking of skins that greatly alter Wattson is The Warrior Empress. Instead of a skintight jumpsuit, it puts the Legend in weighty blue samurai armor and a matching helmet that includes a white mane. With it added, Wattson will even wear glowing green gems on her head, chest, and gloves. The Warrior Empress skin debuted inside Season 2’s Iron Crown Event and has only returned twice since then. Once it does make its way back to the store, potential buyers should look to spend a light 1,800 Apex Coins for it.

Thunder Kitty

The newest skin to join our list is the Legendary Thunder Kitty. That is because it hands Wattson a baseball cap with cat ears and neon lightning bolts displayed on almost every piece of clothing. The cosmetic is perfect for those wanting some summertime fashion, as it also features a white crop top and jean shorts. With Thunder Kitty coming from Season 12’s Anniversary Collection Event in 2022, it is likely to appear in another event within the next few seasons.
