The Best Warwick Skins in League of Legends

Warwick has a special place in many LoL players’ hearts. He’s one of the first ever champions to grace the Rift, has a character design that has stood the test of time, and a kit that virtually anyone can love. Plus, his voice lines make you feel like a total badass in game. As such, we’ll be ranking each skin for Warwick and determining which one is the best at making you feel like an apex predator in LoL.

Though before we dive in, we have to give Riot credit where credit’s due. Warwick’s base model is pretty impressive. It perfectly immerses you in the monstrous, wild theme, pays homage to his backstory, and the color scheme is top tier.  

For our rankings, we’ll consider each skin’s aesthetic, animations, sound effects, and splash art.

12. Feral Warwick

  • Release Date: November 16, 2010
  • Cost: 975 RP

Feral Warwick is pretty disappointing — mainly because it doesn’t live up to the “Feral” part of the name. It essentially turns Warwick into a doggo version of Singed, equipped with a lab coat, mask, and poison-filled vials.

While I can certainly imagine it as a fun Halloween skin, it falls flat as a standalone skin. It definitely does pay homage to his lore though, which some may appreciate. 

11. Urf the Manatee & Urfwick 

  • Release Date: March 31, 2010 & November 08, 2017
  • Cost: 5000 RP or 150,000 BE 

Urf the Manatee and Urfwick are technically two separate skins. However, they’re practically the same, with the only difference being that the OG skin has a tiny crown.

While these skins are rare — not many people are willing to fork out 150,0000 blue essence or 5000 RP — they aren’t worth your buck in my opinion. Sure, the Urf theme is hilarious and it’s pretty fun to slap enemies while dressed as a manatee, but at the end of the day it’s just a gimmick (and an expensive one at that!).

10. Hyena Warwick

  • Release Date: December 05, 2011
  • Cost: 975 RP

You definitely get a lot more value out of Hyena Warwick than Feral Warwick…and it honestly does the “Feral” theme better. However, I still can’t put it any higher up on this list. There’s just something disturbing about it. It kind of makes Warwick look like a rejected character design from the Crash Bandicoot universe. 

I know this is pretty controversial — many people put this skin as their no.1 pick! But even though it brings a whole new concept to the table, I’m just not a huge fan of the “whacky” vibe. Still, it does have some good points even I can appreciate; the mohawk is a cool touch and that cackling laugh is iconic. 

9. Tundra Hunter Warwick 

  • Release Date: August 15, 2010
  • Cost: 520 RP

Game of Throne fans out there, rejoice: unlike the finale of the series, this skin certainly won’t disappoint! It essentially transforms Warwick into a direwolf, giving his dark coat an icy-grey, Arctic makeover. 

But this skin isn’t just a simple recolor of his base model; you also get some new, nifty visual elements that help up his badassery by tenfold. He now sports formidable saber-like teeth, an ice crystal backpiece, and a frozen arm that is sure to pack a punch (we’re talking Vi-level “pow energy”). 

My favorite part of this skin though has to be the new W particle effect. Warwick’s eyes glow a piercing blue as he hunts for his prey, which truly helps capture his insanity and senseless lust for destruction.

8. Marauder Warwick

  • Release Date: February 17, 2015
  • Cost: 750 RP

If you’re an avid RPG fan with a particular love for swanky armor, this skin will be right up your alley. It gives Warwick a whole body of badass armor, with each piece packed with intricate details, sharp, shiny edges, and eyecatching purple hues.

There’s also a nifty wolf-themed helmet, which adds a mysterious flair to his champion while giving off “main character” vibes.

7. Winterblessed Warwick (& Prestige Edition)

  • Release Date: December 08, 2022
  • Cost: 1350 RP 

Winterblessed Warwick is essentially the upgraded version of Tundra Hunder Warwick, and I’m here for it. It makes Warwick look like something straight out of the Ice Age. Each attack is also imbued with wintery goodness, with snow, ice, and aurora borealis-inspired hues. 

The actual animations also feel slick and really help you feel the power in every hit. 

However, I can’t put this skin higher up on the list; the “upgraded” Prestige version of it just isn’t worth the buck. In fact, it actually makes the skin look worse in my opinion, turning Warwick into a cartoonish wolf instead of a monstrous Ice Age entity. With that said, it is ultimately down to personal preference, and the base skin is still a great all-round pick.

6. Big Bad Warwick

  • Release Date: April 27, 2010
  • Cost: 520 RP

Okay, you’ve got to love this skin. Granny vibes, bunny slippers, frilly pajamas — it’s absolutely hilarious. Sure, I certainly won’t be playing with it in my ranked games, but whenever I need a pick me up “Big Bad Warwick” is the go-to skin.

It just soothes the soul and makes me want to bake cookies even for my enemies. Yep, even those enemies who are BMing in all chat with “get guds” and “uninstall.”

5. Grey Warwick

  • Release Date: July 08, 2010
  • Cost: Level 5 honor token

Grey Warwick used to be an incredibly rare skin. Well, it still is for those who can’t resist a good ol’ flame war. Jokes aside, Grey Warwick is pretty nice considering you can get it as a reward for being honorable.

It gives Warwick an incredibly badass headpiece, a killer snarl, and a ghoulish appearance. There’s now also a demonic blade lodged in Warwick’s back, upping his chaotic energy tenfold. And yes, we agree — it does take backstabbing to a whole other (literal) level.  

4. Firefang Warwick

  • Release Date: March 29, 2011
  • Cost: 975 RP

Elemental skins don’t usually sway my heart. However, Firefang Warwick is one of the few exceptions: it’s a fiery, hellish masterpiece that even Satan would approve of.

Every element of the skin transforms Warwick into a nightmare-inducing hellhound, from the demonic eyes to the deadly molten armor. His fiery W animation also ups his fear factor by tenfold. It feels a bit like a pay2win feature; after all, you don’t need mechanical outplays when you can scare your enemies to death!

Aside from the W though, all the other animations have pretty much just received a red recolor. But for 975 RP? I can’t exactly fault it. This skin offers unbelievable value. Plus, it also comes with one of the best Warwick splash arts out there. 

3. PROJECT: Warwick

  • Release Date: August 01, 2019
  • Cost: 1350 RP

The PROJECT skin line has produced some amazing, top-tier skins over the years, with one of them of course being PROJECT: Warwick. The skin gives Warwick a mecha glow up, transporting him to an alternate dimension where he’s now a robotic pup wreaking havoc on spaceships and distant planets. The overall look is sleek, Evangelion-esque, and packed with intricate details. 

To top it off, the attack animations and recall are showstopping and incorporate the sci-fi theme beautifully. 

2. Old God Warwick

  • Release Date: August 12, 2021
  • Cost: 1350 RP

This skin lives up to its name: it truly makes Warwick look like a fearsome, evil god capable of reigning Hades. His whole body is covered in skeletal, otherworldly armor, imbued with mystical power, and adorned with glowing purple marks that resemble eyes, giving him an all-knowing, chilling presence.

The animations are also visually impressive. Each attack immerses you further in the darkness while feeling smooth, impactful, and distinct. My all-time favorite animation though? The recall. That roar is sure to resonate deep in your enemies’ souls (well, whatever’s left of them).

1. Lunar Guardian Warwick

  • Release Date: February 08, 2018
  • Cost: 1350 RP

If Old God Warwick makes you look like you came from the depths of Hades, Lunar Guardian makes you look like you came straight from the gates of heaven — the skin is absolutely divine and mesmerizing in every way. You get to see Warwick take on the form of a lunar deity, with gold armor, an ornamental helmet, and a glowing, mystical backpiece. 

But the main reason why I put Lunar Guardian Warwick at the top spot instead of Old God? The attack animations. Each attack gives Warwick a gold and electrifying aura, making you feel like a Super Saiyan. Yep. You can finally live out all your Dragon Ball Z childhood dreams.
