Wrapping up the first Act of Valorant’s full 1.0 release, Riot Games published a YouTube trailer teasing the upcoming Act II battle pass. Despite criticism over the rewards in the first battle pass and the experience grind required to reach the skins, this second wave of skins and creative cosmetics certainly stands out in a crowd. Costing the same $10 barrier to access premium rewards, there is much more value compared to the previous seasons battlepass rewards. The trailer prominently showcases a variety of weapons, sprays, buddies and more.
The skins for the new tiers are all categorized into three distinct design flavors. The first design is the metallic Red Alert for the Operator, Classic and Bucky. The sleek red and black designs are eye catching for sure with a mini-shark portrait.
The POLYfox series showcases the white and orange polygonal fox design, the Sheriff, Guardian and Bulldog all brightly showcase the luscious design. For a more devious scheme, the Hivemind series brings the deep purple and black to weapons like the Vandal, Spectre, Shorty, Ares and a knife. With the knife and the vandal being some of the last items in the battle pass, all of the skins are spread out over a variety of different tiers for players to collect. Alongside the newly added Glitchpop skins, the world of Valorant is bound to be full of colorfully painted weapons to eliminate other Agents. Here are the new models that can be found in game.
