Riot Games will now reward players with gun buddies in VALORANT for making their accounts more secure.

VALORANT was Riot Games’ first foray into the tactical shooter market. And despite the intense competition from established players, Riot somehow managed to carve up a solid niche for themselves in this competitive genre.

Like most free-to-play multiplayer first-person shooter games, security is a big deal for Riot Games. As such, VALORANT allows players to turn on two-factor authentication to keep their account safe from unwanted attacks.

And by doing so, Riot will now reward players who enabled 2FA with a gun buddy that looks like a lock. So, without any further delay, let us guide you on how to enable this procedure that will make your account safer.

How to Unlock “Keep it Safer” Gunbuddy

As mentioned earlier, to unlock the “Keep it Safer” gun buddy, players will need to enable two-factor authentication on their Riot account.

Step-by-step process on how to turn on 2FA:

Here’s how you can enable Two-Factor Authentication to your Riot Games account:

  • Go to the official Riot Games site
  • Sign in with your Riot account
  • There should now be a banner at the top that says, “Two-factor authentication is now available”
  • Click the “Enable 2FA”
  • An email should be sent after that, click “Enable Two-Factor Authentication” from there as well
  • You’re all set

After you are done with this process, the “Keep it Safer” gun buddy will be added to your account.
