Is there a VALORANT Worlds song in our future? Fnatic’s Jake “Boaster” Howlett seems to think so.

Sentinels might have been the champions of the VALORANT Champions Tour Stage 2 Masters but Europe’s Boaster won our hearts.

The cheeky and charismatic IGL made the most of his Iceland appearance and became an overnight sensation. He grew from 10,000 followers on Twitter to amassing nearly 40,000 in just one week. While Boaster was known in the European pro scene, Iceland gave him new opportunities to elevate himself in the international VALORANT community.

From his quirky on-stage celebrations to funny interviews and reactions for the cameras, the 26-year-old was always the center of attention throughout VALORANT’s first international LAN event.

This week, Boaster joined Upcomer’s Showstopper hosts Yinsu Collins and Tyler “Fionn” Erzberger to speak about his new-found fame and his biggest challenges as a less experienced in-game leader.

Not only has Boaster won our hearts, but he has recently gone viral in China for covering Mandarin songs. He also revealed a particularly ambitious dream about being chosen to sing the first-ever VALORANT Worlds Song.
