Valorant skins: bundles, prices, tiers, and more

If you want to play Valorant in style, then chances are you’ve had your eye on new Valorant skins for a while. But if you haven’t, and you’ve simply arrived at this here page with green, envious eyes after playing with a teammate’s Glitchpop Vandal, then don’t worry, we understand – we get jealous too.

There’s something so alluring about a weapon skin. While they’re just digital pieces of artwork slapped onto a weapon of your choice, finally getting a chance to take down that Jett that’s been destroying you every single round with a fancy animated skin is just glorious.

So if you’re here to work out which Valorant skin you’re going to spend your hard earned cash on, we’ve got you covered. Here’s everything you need to know about Valorant skins, including how to pick them up, how much they’ll set you back, and what you’ll need to do over time to upgrade them.

HOW CAN I BUY VALORANT SKINS?

Valorant skins can only be bought in one place – via the in-game store. A collection of the latest skins will be placed in the spotlight for a week or so, but individual skins are refreshed every single day.

You can also earn some skins through the game’s battle pass. These are refreshed with every Act, so make sure you check out each and every tier to see what you can pick up over the course of your Valorant ranked journey.

Valorant skins price

If you’re looking to kickstart your Valorant skins collection, there are a couple of things you should know. Firstly, the skins are priced in tiers and secondly, the top tier can set you back a fair amount.

Here’s what the Valorant skins tiers currently look like:

Edition Price
Select
Edition
Single skin:  875 VP (~$10 / £7)
Bundle: 2,930 VP (~$34 / £24) / 3,500 VP (~$41 / £29)
Deluxe
Edition
Single skin 1,275 VP (~$16 / £11)
Bundle: 5,100 VP (~$62 / £44)
Premium
Edition
 Single skin: 1,775 VP (~$23 / £16)
Bundle: 7,100 VP (~$82 / £59)
Ultra
Edition
Single skin: 2,475 VP (~$30 / £21)
Bundle:  9,900 VP (~$119 / £86)
Exclusive
Edition
Single skin: price varies
Bundle: price varies

While you might be buying a single skin or a bundle of skins, it’s worth knowing that every skin comes with its own animations, sound effects, and sights. Some can even be upgraded over time, giving you a chance to change the appearance of a weapon.

To do that though, you’ll need to spend Radianite Points – a type of currency you can earn through completing set Battle Pass challenges or through exchanging Valorant Points. Once you have enough RP to upgrade your weapon (this usually costs 10/15 RP per tier), you can head to Collection, select the weapon you wish to upgrade, and select the tiers on the right hand side.

Before you commit to the upgrade though, it’s worth checking out each and every tier since they change your weapons in different ways. Some will change the colour of the gun and others will change the animations.

This means that users will be able to download and run various apps through the Epic Games Store, including the already available Spotify.

The newest additions to the platform’s app page include Itch.io, Brave, KenShape, Krita, and iHeartRadio. Here’s a brief description of each of them along with any limitations that have been listed by Epic. 

  • Itch.io: DRM free, indie-focused game store where developers run a “pay what you want” pricing model for consumers. 
  • Brave: Open-source browser that automatically blocks ads and website trackers while letting users send cryptocurrency contributions to content creators and websites they want to support. 
  • KenShape: Software used to generate 3D models based on 2D pixel art drawn using various shapes, which is directly compatible with most game engines. 
  • Krita: Digital painting app that’s used by millions to create illustrations, comics, animations, sketches, paintings, and more. 
  • iHeartRadio: Free all-in-one digital music, podcasting, and livestreaming radio service that also offers subscriptions that give access to on-demand features. 
    • Available only in North America.

Epic is also launching a Fortnite partnership with Spotify today at 7pm CT, where Fortnite Crew Members will receive three free months of Spotify service if they’re new Spotify premium subscribers. 

More apps are going to be coming to the Epic Games Launcher in the future, including Epic’s face-to-face social network Houseparty and Discord.

When is the Destruction of Verdansk Part 2 in Warzone?

When is the Destruction of Verdansk Part 2 in Warzone?

When is the destruction of Verdansk Part 2 in Warzone? Activision kicked off Call of Duty: Warzone’s end with a big nuclear event. Although the game crashes made it difficult for players to fully enjoy the experience, what comes next is just a few short hours away.

The next phase of the event kicks off at 12 p.m. PST. For now, players have only been able to access Rebirth Island’s night mode. Part two of the event comes 24 hours after the nuke’s launch, which saw a missile launch from one of the silos around Verdansk. A mushroom cloud engulfed Stadium and Downtown, and the explosion immediately spread throughout the map.

Part two of the event kicks off in Rebirth, so you’ll need to hop into the night mode if you want to see this next step for yourself. There will be plenty of live content creators checking out the event live if you’re unable to make it.

What can we expect next? It’s sort of hard to anticipate what is to come, but it’s essentially confirmed that players will have access to a 1984 reskin of Verdansk. In the meantime, Season 3 is officially live, and there have been a lot of changes to popular weapons in Warzone.

Live-Action Call of Duty: Warzone Season 3 Trailer Released

Activision has released a brand new live-action trailer for Call of Duty: Warzone Season 3.

Titled “Squad up the World,” the trailer went live early on Thursday, April 22—marking the definitive start of Warzone’s Season 3. Its release marks a welcome return to live-action footage as fans haven’t seen a new trailer of this type since 2017. Squad up the World featured appearances by several notable celebrities and musicians, dipping in and out of “game” as they performed military-style feats to the prolific track “Thunderstruck” by AC/DC.

The trailer, itself, primarily focused on capturing the intensity experienced by players as they band together with friends to dominate Verdansk. Directed by Gibson Hazard—best known for his work on the music videos of Drake, Billie Eilish, and more—fans had a chance to see some of the biggest names in hip hop and gaming, alike, come together and showcase exactly what Warzone is capable of.

Names such as Saweetie, Swae, Young Thug, Michelle Viscusi, Mookie Betts, and even Nadeshot flashed across the screen firing well-known weapons, operating copters, and careening through the city streets in a high octane, action sequence reminiscent of in-game events.

In an attempt to bring that feeling home, the audience even got a chance to see them sitting behind screens, themselves, controllers in hand, and headsets secured reacting to the actions their “in-game” counterparts just performed.

Regardless of Season 3’s rocky start in the past 24 hours, long-time players are no doubt feeling a bit of nostalgia following its trailer release. Perhaps this is the turning point Activision needs to win its player base back and kick off the next segment of Warzone in style.

League players raise more than $7 million for charity with Elderwood Ornn fundraiser

Avatar

Published

After years of waiting, League of Legends fans finally got their hands on a second Ornn skin with Riot’s latest charity fundraiser, Elderwood Ornn, in December 2020. That skin, it turns out, raised more than $7 million for charity from the end of last year to early January, the developer revealed today.

The purple and bright blue skin, which cost 1,350 RP (or roughly $10), raised money for the Riot Games Social Impact Fund at Impact Assets, the developer’s charitable financial partner, beating Dawnbringer Karma’s $6 million charity record from the previous year.

“Thank you all so much for continuing to support highly impactful organizations around the world,” Riot said. “We hope you’ll join us again in this year’s charity fundraiser, so we can continue to build a better world together.”

Image via Riot Games

The Social Impact Fund was created in 2019 as a “unique philanthropic venture” fund that allows Riot to make “direct investments” into a variety of “global organizations” aimed at “solving some of the world’s most pressing issues.”

Since establishing the project, the League community has raised over $13 million for charity, not including the many millions of dollars contributed for skins like Dark Star Cho’Gath in 2018 before the fund was created. 

Altogether, that money has been donated to more than 25 different causes around the world. 

“The Riot Games Social Impact Fund is an independent entity separate from Riot Games the developer and publisher,” Riot’s fundraiser page reads. “It is also structured in such a way that all funding must be used to pursue positive social impact.”
