To celebrate the VALORANT Champions Tour’s final event, Champions, Riot Games is releasing an exclusive bundle for the event and drops for watching the tournament. The new cosmetics will become available Wednesday, with 50% of the revenue from the Champions bundle going to the qualified teams.
Information on how to purchase the VALORANT Champions bundle, what that includes and how to get drops for the event are included below.
What is in the Champions bundle
The bundle is 6,264 VP, or about $64, and will include the Champions 2021 Vandal, Karambit, three Art of Greatness player cards and the “Champion” title.
The players cards have three separate themes: The Flame Card, Inspiration Card and Unbreakable Card.
The two weapons also have levels. The Karambit has three, and the Vandal has four. Both have a “Champion’s Aura” on their highest level, four for the gun and three for the melee weapon, that lights up when players have the most kills in the game.
Players can purchase these cosmetics together in the VALORANT shop in-game. They are available from Nov. 24 through Dec. 12 and will not return to the store in-game or the Night Market afterward, according to Riot Games.
How to get drops
The tournament begins on Dec. 1 and is the first day players can earn free drops and cosmetics by watching Riot affiliated streams on Twitch, YouTube, AfreecaTV or Trovo in whatever language they prefer.
Players can earn a gun buddy and a spray through watching the professional VALORANT matches. The spray will be available through Dec. 1-11, and the gun buddy can be earned during the finals which start at noon ET on Dec. 12.
Players can link their accounts through Twitch, YouTube and Afreeca by following the instructions through Riot, or going to Settings in their Twitch account and navigating to the “Connect to Twitch” option on the page.
