It looks like Riot Games is about to make significant changes to the weapon prices in VALORANT in an upcoming patch, according to new leaks that surfaced recently from the ValorLeaks Twitter account.
Nine different weapons are reportedly getting price changes, with only the Judge getting an increase. Eight of those adjustments are drops in price, and the two significant movers are the Operator and Judge. Both of these guns are seeing a lot of use in both solo queue and professional play.
Here are the future VALORANT weapon price changes:
~ Frenzy : 500 >>> 450
~ Stinger : 1100 >>> 950
~ Bucky: 900 >>> 850
~ Judge: 1600 >>> 1850
~ Bulldog: 2100 >>> 2050
~ Guardian: 2400 >>> 2250
~ Marshall: 1000 >>> 950
~ Operator: 5000 >>> 4700
~ Ares: 1600 >>> 1550
With streamers like Twitch star Michael "shroud" Grzesiek demanding nerfs to the seemingly overpowered weapon, Riot has heard players' pleas and increased its price by 250 Creds onto its current cost.
The price of the Operator sniper rifle was dropped to 4,700 creds from the pricey 5,000, and while it's still the most expensive weapon in the game, the 300 price drop should allow more players to use it at earlier rounds.
It looks like VALORANT patch 2.11, which is set to drop on June 8, will shake things up. The latest patch is also expected to make the Origin weapon skin bundle available in the store.
