As 2020 comes to an end, the premium cosmetic team at Riot Games who are currently working on VALORANT made some interesting comments regarding new types of cosmetic items going forward.

The whole VALORANT community mostly agrees Riot does an excellent job with their cosmetic items like weapon skins. Every new bundle has so many different attributes and personality baked into them.

Each of these skins lines tells a different story. On top of that, most of the premium or ultra-tier skins have extra VFX and animation to let players customize their playing session in VALORANT.

VALORANT championship skins

In League of Legends, Riot Games already make amusing skins based on that year’s World Championship winner. Usually, the winning team gives suggestions on their championship skins.

In a recent Reddit thread, a fan asked devs that are responsible for most of the cosmetic items in the game if they have any plan to include exclusive championship skins just like they already have with League of Legends.

In reply, Preeti Khanolkar who is a producer at Riot Games explained that they would love to do something similar in VALORANT, but right now they are still not 100% sure on the exact implementation. However, they definitely intend to do something similar in the future.

The Championship skins are a great way for top talents to become legends in the scene. For most fans including the pro players, this is more of a recognition thing rather than just another shiny piece of cosmetic item that players can buy in the store.
