If there’s one thing we can get behind when it comes to the tactical shooter Valorant, it’s a decent reason to buy more snazzy new Valorant skins before we try to climb the Valorant ranks to Radiant. And, well, that’s what Riot Games is doing with the return of its charitable Give Back bundle. From November 16, Riot Games is releasing the Valorant Give Back 2022 bundle with several fan-voted skins. It will be available to purchase in-game until November 30.
If you’re wondering what skins will be available, Riot Games has revealed that the following cosmetics will be included in the selection of Valorant Give Back 2022 bundle skins: Neptune Vandal, Gaia’s Vengeance Ghost, Forsaken Operator, and Magepunk Spectre. The bundle will also include an exclusive Give Back 2022 gun buddy, card, and spray – so, you can show off your support.
But, what exactly are you supporting when you purchase the Valorant Give Back 2022 bundle? Well, Riot Games has confirmed that 50% of the proceeds from the weapon skins and 100% of the proceeds from the accessories in the bundle will go to the Riot Games Social Impact Fund.
Last year’s Give Back bundle reportedly raised over $5.5 million for the Riot Games Social Impact Fund, a “nonprofit that fuels [Riot Games’] collective efforts for global social impact” – according to senior manager for social impact Jimmy Hahn.
If you’re looking for a slightly more visual representation of what you can get your hands on through the Valorant Give Back 2022 bundle, you can find that below:
Riot Games’ goal “is to provide players with an opportunity to give back in a fun and engaging way”, says Hahn, and we’re certainly impressed with what’s on offer. Anson Tan, a concept art manager at Riot Games, also added that “the goal was to create bright and energetic visuals while staying in line with the beloved format and composition of two agents joining hands for a fantastic cause”, when discussing the new Give Back 2022 bundle accessories. We don’t know about you, but we think they did a decent job of that.
We know Valorant’s VCT partnership system drew heavily from League of Legends, but we hope other online games will draw from Riot Games’ initiative when it comes to these sorts of opportunities to give back when getting some in-game cosmetics.
