Now that Valorant has been fully launched and the beta has come to an end, the team at Riot seems to be freed up to bring some exciting and outlandish features to the game. A good example of this is the new Elderflame weapon skin, which will turn your Agent's gun into a dragon. Yup, you read that right. With that, here’s how to get dragon skins in Valorant.
Valorant Elderflame - How to Get a Dragon Skin
Valorant’s new Elderflame skin will be the first Ultra Edition skin to be released in the game. Further, players who want to give their guns a dragon skin can do so by purchasing the Valorant Elderflame Ultra Edition skin, which will be available in the store on July 10. Unfortunately, at the time of writing we do not know how much the skin will cost, but since it is only a few days away, we will find out soon enough! Further, it’s also unclear how long this item will be available, so if you’re interested in it, you better grab it in case it goes away!
If you’d like to see the Valorant dragon skin in action, you can catch out the Elderflame trailer in the video below.
As we mentioned earlier, this is the first Ultra Edition skin to be added to the game, so it should be interesting to see if Riot adds in more animal-themed weapon skins or pivots to something else. In all likelihood, it will depend on the community's response, so if you like the dragon skin, be sure to let the developers know on social media!
Earlier this week, Riot released the Valorant 1.03 patch which focused on making the Guardian weapon a bit more affordable and changing how surrendering matches works. Per the update, the Guardian weapon now has increased stats and will only cost 2,500 credits. Further, surrendering Unrated matches now only requires an 80% player vote, as opposed to 100%.
