For you to get the Riot Gun Buddy in Valorant, you first need to be in a match with a Valorant employee (Riot employee, to be exact). Then, you need to show good sportsmanship within the match, keep up the good spirits in your team, and to be positive overall. It’s a game, after all, shouldn’t be that difficult, right? RIGHT?!

Naturally, a piece of advice that we can share (which many have repeated on this matter) is not to beg a Riot Employee for the Riot Gun Buddy. They do not have an infinite amount of them to share.

No, you shouldn’t ask customer support to assign you one. That’s not happening either.

And no, you shouldn’t take up offers to buy a Riot Gun Buddy. That’s sus. Riot Employee will not sell it to you, so everyone trying to present a Riot Employee and claiming that they can sell you a Riot Gun Buddy is a fraud, most likely.

Here are some official sources you can consult for this matter:
