VALORANT Episode 3 Act 1: Reflection Battle Pass Guide
VALORANT Episode 3 Act 1 is coming soon and we’ll be seeing the dawn of a new agent “KAY/O”. Along with the new agent will also be a brand new battle pass. As usual, the battle pass will be filled with cosmetics and other unlockables too. The battle pass will cost 1,000 VALORANT Points, also as usual.
The beginning of a new act always gets the players excited because everyone is expecting to see what’s in store in the act’s battle pass. This time around, players now have more reasons to be exhilarated since Riot has mentioned that the upcoming battle pass will appeal to a wide and diverse audience. Not to mention that fans have been asking for more lore-based content which now gives the devs a reason to shake things up with the battle pass. In fact, some players and content creators agree that the next act’s battle pass is the best one yet.
New VALORANT Battle Pass Weapon Skins
Episode 3 Act 1 will feature three new gun skin collections namely, Jigsaw, K/TAC, and Monarch.
The Jigsaw skin collection is showing shades of the “VALORANT GO!” collection, featuring agents wrapped around the weapons as skins. The featured agents for this collection will be Astra, Killjoy, Skye, and Yoru. It will include skins for the Ghost, Judge, Ares, and Guardian.
Before K/TAC came to surface, Riot had originally planned for this skin collection to become the base weapon skin of the game. Now that the idea has been scratched, the K/TAC skin collection now has an origin story attached to it making the collection more special. It will include skins for the Sheriff, Bulldog, Operator, Vandal, and Melee.
The Monarch skins are a pretty sleek looking collection. It has a nice touch of white, gold, and black with a clean glossy finish. This collection includes skins for the Shorty, Frenzy, Bucky, and Marshal.
Gun Buddies: New Weapon Charms in Episode 3, Act 1
Who doesn’t love these cute little weapon charms? They add so much character to weapons and whatever a player chooses to equip can say a lot about their personality. For this act, there will be nine Gun Buddies up for grabs:
- Island Dreams
- One Direction
- Rubber Ducky
- Salmon Nigiri
- The Key to Ancient Mysteries
- Coin EP3
- Icy Crate
New VALORANT Player Cards
Just like the Gun Buddies, Player Cards are another way for players to show-off their taste in style as these cards serve as your profile’s representation.
Here’s a list of Player Cards that you can acquire:
- Best for Last Schema
- Cosmic Connections
- Feel the Rush
- Naked Op
- Naked Op Gold
- Roti Boatie
- Testing Grounds
Sprays have always been a fun way to either communicate, show-off, or taunt other players. Back then, sprays were a lot simpler and was just an innocent way to interact with other players throughout the match. As the acts have come by, the devs have been getting creative with the sprays making them humorous, witty, and somewhat insulting. Recently, the devs have decided to correlate terms that players use in the new set of spray.
Here’s a list of the new set of sprays:
- Cracked Gold
- Jumping for Joy
- Max Money
- No Guardian
- No Pen
- Sand Castle
- Sorry Sova
- Sweaty Breach
- Rank Down
- Rank Up
VALORANT’s new agent may be the highlight of the next act, but the battle pass is definitely worthy of praise as well. VALORANT Episode 3 Act 1 is scheduled to come out on June 22, 2021 and is expected to end by August 24, 2021. Get grinding Radiants!
