VALORANT: How to Get a Riot Gun Buddy

Riot Games is finally giving plebs like us the opportunity to get our hands on the highly sought-after Riot Gun Buddy in VALORANT.

Riot Games, the developers behind the highly successful MOBA League of Legends, made their first foray into the tactical shooter space with VALORANT, which is a mix of the tactical element of Counter-Strike and hero-based abilities of Overwatch.

Following its highly publicized release back in 2020, VALORANT gained a massive dedicated playerbase, which surprised absolutely no one as the game was really polished right out of the gate and somehow managed to fix some of the issues that similar titles were facing.

On top of that, it was a free-to-play game, meaning cosmetic items such as weapon skins and gun charms, or more commonly known as gun buddies, became a highly wanted commodity. Among these gun buddies, the Riot Gun Buddy that featured a fistbump logo became highly coveted among the playerbase as this gun buddy signified that you are a Riot employee since only they were able to get their hands on this virtual item.

Now, this exclusive item can be yours if you follow these simple steps below:

How to get Riot Gun Buddy

If you’re looking to obtain the ever-popular Fist Bump Gun Buddy, there’s only one surefire way to get it: demonstrate good sportsmanship while in a match with a Riot employee. That means being on your best behavior as well as being a positive and motivating part of your team.

While you should always demonstrate these traits, you only have a chance of receiving a Fist Bump if a Riot employee sees you in action. Also, keep in mind that it’s not a good idea to ask a Rioter for the Gun Buddy. There’s a limit to the number of Fist Bumps each Rioter can give out, so they’re unlikely to give you one just because you asked—if anything, this lessens your chances.

WILL A RIOTER EVER OFFER TO SELL ME A RIOT GUN BUDDY?

Never. If someone claims to be a Riot employee and offers to sell you a Fist Bump or tells you about a Riot Gun Buddy contest or giveaway, they’re trying to scam you.

A true Rioter will never ask you to pay for a Fist Bump or tell you to enter a contest for the Riot Gun Buddy. If this happens to you, please report the player either in-game by pressing Esc and clicking on the Report button next to the player’s name, or after the match at this link.

I’VE BEEN A GOOD SPORT IN EVERY MATCH I’VE PLAYED! CAN I SUBMIT A TICKET TO GET A RIOT GUN BUDDY?

Nope, doesn’t work like that! A Rioter has to see you in action!
