When you queue up for a ranked game of VALORANT after a long day at the office, the last thing you expect is to get wrecked by Kourtney Kardashian. Imagine a Raze Blast Pack-ing out of A Main on Breeze to shoot you in the face with a shotgun. Later, you find out you’ve been deleted from the server by a Kardashian.
On Sunday, Kourtney Kardashian posted a photo of Riot Games’ popular tactical first-person shooter to her Instagram story, a platform where she has 161 million followers. Kardashian is a model and media personality known for appearing on the show, “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.” She has accrued a massive following across several social media channels.
The VALORANT community was in disbelief to see that the American model had dipped her toe into the gaming world. Her fiancé Travis Barker, the drummer for rock band Blink-182, has a history with video games that makes Kardashian’s foray into the world of gaming a little less surprising. She’s also not the first mainstream celebrity to get into VALORANT, with people like Zedd and Jordan Fisher being avid fans of the game.

While the photo posted to Kourtney’s Instagram doesn’t show much, the keen viewer can pick out a few things of note. For starters, she’s playing Raze. If you had to predict who Kourtney Kardashian would main, would you have guessed Raze? Better than a Jett insta-lock at least. She’s also rocking the RGX 11Z PRO katana knife skin. It costs a cool 4350 VP — about $50 — but if anyone can afford to splurge on knife skins, it’s probably Kardashian.
One question you probably weren’t asking yourself a few days ago is ‘what are Kourtney Kardashian’s peripherals?’ From the Instagram story, Kardashian appears to be rocking a Ducky One 2 Mini Black keyboard and a Finalmouse that looks like the Ultralight Pro – White. Both are certified Gamer™ choices that are, if not necessarily top of the line, wholly respectable choices.
