If you've ever been playing a match and heard the police sirens echoing all over the map then you've probably seen a riot skin. Since the release of League of Legends there have been many limited edition themed skins released by Riot. One of the most popular skin themes are the riot skins. There are currently 6 riot skins that have been released and all feature characters in police riot gear. Most of these skins are only available on new accounts as back in summer 2014 Riot disabled all skin code coupons. In this list we’ll be looking at each of the individual riot skins and the details of each one.

This riot skin also has some new animations included such as a completely new recall animation that features police drones when teleporting back. There are also new particles for her Righteous Fury and new auto-attack sounds.This riot skin is often considered the best in the group as the attention to detail on the model and animations is exceptional.

This rare riot skin was originally gifted at Gamescom 2010 and other events such as PAX and E3. For a limited time only Riot enabled the skin at the in game store, allowing anyone to purchase it for 975 RP which is around $7.50. The last time this happened was in 2011 at PAX Prime, making it one of the rarest riot skins. The skin itself features Singed in full riot gear including a new riot shield and tear gas cannister on his back. Unlike other websites claim, the colour of his poison does not change and stays the default green as he wouldn’t change his trademark chemicals!

Riot Nasus

Riot Skins Riot Nasus

Initially gifted at Gamescon 2011 and only obtainable through skin cards handed out, this riot skin is also considered one of the rarest. The skin was available on the riot store for a limited time in August 2012 for 975 RP which is around $7.50. The skin features Nasus in K-9 protective riot gear and a new police baton weapon. The skin itself also changes certain animations and includes a new texture for his ultimate Fury of the Sands. This skin is sure to attract attention from other players who will be left wondering who let the dogs out?

As you can see, almost all of the riot skins listed above are not available in the store any more. Currently Tristana is the only riot skin from the list that you can get your hands on. But don’t worry, there is always the chance they will come back to the store in the future. If you are looking to get a different riot skin then the only way you can do this is by buying an account with it already redeemed.
