Valorant: Battle pass, ranked mode and cosmetics detailed

Valorant: Battle pass, ranked mode and cosmetics detailed

Qwixzo — IGN-Benelux affiliate — gives us more information on what might be in Valorant. Nothing was confirmed by Riot Games.

Valorant is still full of mysteries just a few months away from its release. Many questions remain unanswered for a community that is largely enthusiastic about laying hands and experiencing the first few minutes of in-game gameplay. Today it's Qwixzo — a YouTuber belonging to the IGN-Benelux network — that has delivered his video full of information about Riot Games' FPS. He was present at the game's play-test and here is a list of the main information he highlights.

Please keep in mind that some of this information may not be final since the game will only be released this summer and a lot of changes can be made between the play-test and the official release. RiotZulu was quick to react to Reddit saying that some of the information presented in the video wan't entirely accurate.

  • They will offer a lot of free items while proving a shop with several cosmetics — like in League of Legends.
  • There is a battle passe system with rewards, as we know it — even if Riot Games doesn't call it that since it seems to be free.
  • These rewards are obtained by gaining experience with an agent.
  • An example is taken with Jett. The player can reach 10 levels by playing with her. Each of these levels unlocks an item for your agent.
  • You can get all the cosmetics for free if you play a lot.
  • Agents have missions to complete that give in-game currency — to buy items.
  • These missions should consist of making eliminations, damages, or using your ultimate abilities.
  • Some missions are free, others can be purchased with Riot Points.
  • For the moment cosmetics are mainly weapon skins — but not hero skins.
  • Qwixzo says that Valorant should come out with 12 available agents.
  • There will be "Urf" weapon skins in reference to League of Legends.
  • Valorant shouldn't have lootboxes.
  • There will logically be a ranked mode, which won't be available from launch, but rather towards the end of the year.
  • From Iron to Challenger, the ranking system in Valorant will be similar to League of Legends in terms of divisions.
