8 RIDICULOUSLY Expensive Video Game Skins (We Totally Want)

Looking flash. Spending cash.

One of the best parts about playing video games is the sense of agency you have over your character. Your decisions and actions directly shape the events of their narratives, and can often be the difference between life or death, win or loss.

As such is it any surprise that many players become very attached to their favourites? After all you're spending countless hours pushing them along their adventures, or learning every single combo to help them come out on top, and so of course there are many of us who simply love to customise our avatars, and pay through the absolute nose to do so.

The entries on this list are examples of players not just swapping colour palettes and calling it a day, these are examples of wallets being emptied, credit cards being maxed out and loans going unpaid, all in the name of some digital dressing up.

And you know what? These skins are so cool that even the most frugal of us has to admit, if we had the cash we'd (probably) have done the same.

8. The Olive Branch Pan - PUBG - £1000

One of the most iconic video game weapons of the last decade hasn't been some sort of world destroying laser cannon or sword that could cut through a mountain, it's bizarrely been a humble frying pan.

Thanks to the rampant success of the almighty PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS the humble cooking utensil has flown from the kitchen to the most sought after item in the game, and for good reason as it's placement over the characters butt actually offers a chance at deflecting bullets, AND it can of course be used to scramble the eggs of any player close enough to use it on.

As such players were very keen to hear that an update in 2018 added in a chance, and by that I mean a 0.0009% chance of getting "The Olive Branch" frying pan skin. As this was such a low drop rate chance, the demand for such an item skyrocketed and it commands a quite frankly insane price of well over $1,000 at the time of writing.

However you can't deny it doesn't look cool. The shiny metallic effect and the PUBG logo might attract the attention of a sniper a county mile over with it's shine, but it'll attract all sorts of envy and awe when you stroll through populated areas with this hanging from your waist.

While the pan itself might be non stick, it seems for now that the price is set at around $1,000
