Valorant’s First Success
A year ago, Valorant began its beta, and from then, the game has been successfully rising. According to Riot Games, it has reached over 14 million active players with over 500 million matches. Moreover, Twitch statistical data verifies that Valorant is included in the top watched FPS games in the market at the moment. Reaching this success in just a year is indeed celebratory. Therefore, Riot Games is returning the favor as a way of saying thank you to their players all over the world.
The Give Back Bundle
The Give Back Bundle is part of the surprises for its first anniversary. On June 22, Riot Games will roll in the Give Back custom bundle that will comprise the crowd favorite in-game cosmetics. Valorant players can vote for their desired weapon skins starting from June to June 7. Afterward, the game developer will craft a bundle with five from the top picks. Furthermore, 100% proceeds from accessories and 50% from the Weapon skins will be collected to the Games Social Impact Fund, collaborating with Impact Assets.
What’s more, there will be an additional Premium and the most-desired skins included in the bundle. Among these skins are Operator, Reaver Vandal, Magepunk Ghost, Prime 2.0 Phantom and Vandal, Ion Phantom, and a lot more.
Cards and Event Pass
Additionally, there will be player cards and Year 1 event passes. The limited-edition Year 1 set has episodes 1, 2, and 3 with many ways to redeem. The bullets below show how to redeem them:
- Episode 1 – Make your eyes stay peeled to know where to search this drop
- Episode 2 – On your way through a YR1 Prime Gaming Drop
- Episode 3 – Collect as one of the YR1 Event Pass
All players can unlock the YR1 pass with no prerequisites and premium prices. Everyone has equal chances in receiving all the items like a Gun Buddy, Episode 3 Player Card, and many more.
Squad Boost is a feature that allows players to earn extra XP for playing with their friends. Get an extra 8% by queuing as a tag team, 12% for forming a triple threat, and 20% for reaching a five-stack. However, it will only be in the game for a month; it will end on June 26.
