Valorant has a new set of weapon skins coming. But this time, its collaborative. Riot has revealed a line of upcoming skins based on the hit EDM musical artist Zedd.
Dubbed Spectrum, the line of alternate weapon skins will include options for the Phantom, Guardian, Bulldog, and Classic guns, along with a different knife melee skin. Each skin will have three variations of color, including purple, red, and black. The base color, seen in the header image, is a sleek white coat with bright neon lights bursting out of center points in a cracking pattern. The light color changes as you move, too.
Theyre more than a new texture, though. The alternate skin also includes unique animations for kills, different firing sounds, and a new round finisher upgrade that converts the map into a rave.
Heres the rough part: the price. Due to drop later today, the bundle that includes all skins, two gun buddies, a player card, and a new spray, will cost a hefty 11,000 Valorant points. When converting to real world dollars, were looking at about $100. While these are arguably the most interesting skins theyve released yet, thats a bit of a rough bill for our tastes.
While a first for Valorant, this isnt the first time Zedd has worked with Riot on their games. In 2016, the musical artist made the theme song for the League of Legends World Championship.
Heres a fun number for you. Zedd has a concert coming up in Chicago, where tickets cost $65 plus fees. So this skin bundle costs more than actually seeing Zedd perform live.
