How to buy VALORANT’s battle pass

Riot Games is following the trend of many recent games and will release fully-fledged battle passes for VALORANT on a season-to-season basis.

The battle pass is an affordable way to reward you for the time you put into VALORANT with unique cosmetic items, from skins to gun buddies.

The more you play, the more rewards you get. In total, it takes roughly 100 hours to complete, with XP scaling up each week.

The first week offers 28,350 total XP and the last requires 60,750 total XP. This means you should easily be able to complete the battle pass without having to break a sweat.

There’s a free version of the battle pass, offering the bare minimum, and a premium version. With the premium battle pass, you’ll have the chance to unlock bigger and better rewards.

The quality of the battle pass rewards also increases over time. The battle pass offers sprays, gun buddies, and titles in the initial few weeks of the season. But over time, weapon skins and even a knife will gradually become available.

How to buy the battle pass

The premium version of the battle pass costs 1,000 VALORANT points or roughly $10.

To purchase the battle pass, login, and navigate to battle pass icon at the top left of your client. It should say “Ignition: Act 3.”

If the icon is gray, it means you have insufficient funds. To buy your 1,000 VALORANT points, head to the top right of the client and click the little V symbol. This will give you a number of options for buying points.
