VALORANT players, brace yourself for more unique weapon skins!

From the Elderflame to Glitchpop, Riot's tactical shooter has featured some brilliantly-designed weapon skins, and more are coming in Episode 2, Act 3, and a couple of bundles have been leaked: Tethered Realms and Minima.


Minima Weapon Skin Bundle

The Minima weapon skin bundle features the simplest designs for the Sheriff, Aries, Spectre, Phantom, Operator. While it looks similar to the default basic design of VALORANT weapons, the Minima weapon skins look slicker and it kind of reminds me of the weapons used in The Matrix


The next one is probably one of the most innovative VALORANT weapon skin bundles we've seen. 


Tethered Realms Skin Bundle

The Tethered Realms bundle features a green screen-like animation across their guns on the Forsaken model, and the design gives us a glimpse into the world from where the Forsaken and Sovereign bundles originate from in the lore of VALORANT. Depending on where you are, the weapon skins reflect either Forsaken's dark world or Sovereign's bright world, so they alternate as you move to different areas. 

Tethered Realms bundle comes with weapon skin designs for the Ghost, Guardian, Vandal, Operator, and a badass sword. An unique aspect about the bundle's sword is that on its level two upgrade, you get to dual-wield the sword and the dagger, but note that the dagger is not visible from third-person view. 

In a YouTube video by aSmoogl, the VALORANT developers at Riot Games talked about the process behind designing these skin bundles. Watch the video below:
