Valorant Act 2 Episode 3

From the appearance of a new valorant map called Fracture that continues the Valorant lore, Valorant has also introduced some agent nerfs & buffs, a new valorant Gun Bundle, and of course, the new valorant battlepass.

So, with the abundance of novel possibilities that you can now enjoy with your friends and global valorant players, let’s get an overview of everything new about Valorant!

New Valorant Battlepass!

Starting with the Valorant Battlepass, whose information was recently leaked, Valorant has included the Varnish, Nitro & Artisan Gun Skins for the 12 different guns in the battlepass. It is also said to be the first battlepass to offer so many weapon skins.

Beyond the weapons skins, the Valorant Battlepass also features numerous Valorant Sprays, Player Titles, Valorant Player Cards, Gun Buddies, and of course, Radianite Points. Moreover, the Valorant players will now also receive a 3% XP boost from every matchmade valorant game they complete.

Here’s a rundown of every cosmetic item you get from the new Valorant Battlepass:

Valorant Gun Skins

There are three different types of Valorant gun skins available with the battlepass. Players can unlock them from their respective tiers by obtaining the required XP points, which they can do by completing their daily and weekly missions.

Alternatively, you can also unlock all the items in the battlepass by using your Valorant Points (VP). It is the same currency you use to buy the battlepass and valorant gun bundles, so you’ll be exchanging approximately 15,000 VP to complete your battlepass progress until Chapter 10.

Note: Players cannot unlock items belonging to the Epilogue chapters with VP purchase.
