VALORANT continues to hype up fans with its latest weapon skins. Episode 4, Act 1 is just around the corner, and now, Riot Games has officially revealed the Protocol_781-A weapon skin bundle. The tactical shooter is known for its sci-fi themed weapon skins, and the latest one has a dark and futuristic design.
In the lore of VALORANT, the Protocol skinline was created by an oppressive shadow government who must quell disorder in its ranks, and Protocol 781-A is described to be an arsenal specially designed to provide combat assitance, monitor performance, and enforce compliance with every command. The skins have multiple level styles that players can unlock with Radianite Points (RP).
The entire bundle costs 9,900 VP (about $105 USD), and it includes:
Personal Administrative Melee Unit (melee)

- Protocol 781-A Sheriff
- Protocol 781-A Gun Buddy

This trailer gives dark Terminator vibes, and the aethetics of the new weapon skins definitely look inspired by robotic visuals. Seeing the mechs would really make you wonder if Riot has any plans to add mechs in VALORANT, and of course, many fans of tactical shooter are against that.
Players can also unlock the finisher animation which features a giant robot firing down. There are three different variants players can unlock: red, brown, and grey designs.
Here's the player card that comes with the bundle:
The new weapon skin bundle will be available in the VALORANT store when Episode 4, Act 1 launches on Tuesday, January 11 along with the new agent Neon, new Battlepass, and other updates.
