Minecraft skins are essentially textures that replace the standard player model in order to give it a more personalised look. Skins are also available for mobs, which are the rest of the living creatures in the Minecraft playing environment. A player can create their own skins either from scratch or using a skin template, or they can simply download one of the hundreds already available online. Of the latter, a few stand out as marks of exceptional quality, artistic flair and creativity. Let’s take a quick peek at two of the best Minecraft skins currently on offer:
Assassin’s Creed Altair Skin
This skin is based on the legendary mentor Altair, a key character in the Assasin’s Creed adventure games series. In that game, unlocking this character takes quite a bit of work, but here in Minecraft, you can enjoy the skin with a simple download. This skin makes your character look like a true, brutal assassin.
Storm Trooper Minecraft Skin
This skin is based on the famous Star Wars film series, which has a huge following and has given its name to lots of games, toys, and now even Minecraft skins. The “Storm trooper” skin is based on the main soldier unit in the Star Wars series, the one that makes an appearance in all episodes of the series. If you’re a fan, this one is tough to pass, and a lot of Minecraft players have commented that it is one of the best Minecraft skins they have come across. Kudos to its creator, Hadowkai.

Both the above skins are what we consider to be some of the best Minecraft skins to be found on the internet. This reflects not only our own opinion, but also that of a big part of the Minecraft community. It does not mean, however, that there are no other skins worth of praise. If you feel another skin deserves a mention in a list of best Minecraft skins, do not hesitate to suggest it to us.
