Valorant Episode 3, Act 2 battle pass skins, buddies, player cards, and sprays

Find out all the goodies the Valorant battle pass had to offer in Episode 3, Act 2.

 The Valorant Episode 3, Act 2 battle pass has since expired and is no longer available.

Valorant Episode 3, Act 2 arrived in September 2021 and its delayed release more than paid off back in the day. There was a new map called Fracture, which helped us learn more about the mirrorverse and the ongoing conflict within it. There were even more teasers for future agents and, of course, there were new battle pass goodies up for grabs.

Sure, teasers for Valorant’s Deadeye agent and new Valorant skins didn’t change up the gameplay, but the new arena was a blast. You just had to make sure you had the best Valorant crosshairs at the ready – though that’s still the case today.

Valorant Episode 3, Act 2 battle pass skins

Running from Wednesday, September 8, 2021, until Tuesday, November 2, 2021, the Valorant skins featured on this pass were rather indulgent indeed. We were particularly fond of Artisan’s royal blue variants – and look at that rapier-esque melee, stunning. Meanwhile, Varnish looked like the skins team had somehow found a way to weaponise an old manor house’s drawing room.

Finally, the Nitro set mixed sharp lines with splashes of carbon fiber to offer something a little more high-octane – perfect for when you needed to quickly rotate after your enemies bait you and plant on the opposite side of the map.

Valorant Episode 3, Act 2 battle pass buddies

The Valorant Episode 3 Act 2 battle pass also sported some of the best buddies to date. Senior producer Preeti Khanolkar wasn’t wrong about Follow Me being “the best buddy” Riot had dropped into a pass at that point in time. We were also big fans of the Bruno Coin because, well, Bruno.

Valorant Episode 3, Act 2 battle pass sprays

Riot said it was leaning further into the memes, and the studio wasn’t kidding. ‘Nice Try!’ perfectly epitomised the feeling of whiffing your pistol shots after a successful lurk, resulting in a fat L. And that ‘Not Impressed’ Viper spray? Exquisite.

The Valorant Episode 3, Act 2 battle pass marked the first time an Operator, Phantom, and Vandal skin had all featured on one pass. This made it a particularly fun affair considering the meta.

Art lead at the time, Sean Marino, explained “Artisan and Varnish should feel like they’re made of luxury high-end materials, while Nitro is very graphic and flashy. For the accessories, we tried to incorporate a lot more jokes and memes into this battle pass, especially since players really seemed to enjoy some of the more meme stuff we’d put into others.”

And there you have it, everything that came with the Valorant Episode 3, Act 2 battle pass. With this new drip, you could only hope that it would help you grind through the Valorant ranks all the way to the top.
