With the launch of the new act in Valorant, the buzz for the game is soaring. No doubt thanks to the end of the ranked season as well as the new character Gekko being launched. And with the new character now in the mix, there’s more flexibility within the game; players can test out various lineups. Along with the new act, a new battle pass was launched. We take a closer look at what’s inside to see if it is worth the value or not.
Episode 6 Act 2 Valorant Battle Pass: Gun Skins
Every player looks at the available skins first when they’re deciding if they’ll buy the battle pass.
This act seems like Valorant has gone with quite colorful schemes for their latest skins. Plus they’ve made sure there are skins available for each gun in the game. One thing worth noting is that the skins available in each battle pass are exclusive. This means once the battle pass expires they’re impossible to unlock. In the latest battle pass, we have three variants of skins available to unlock; Signature, Tilde, and Topodek.
In the Signature skin line, the following guns are available:
They have quite a similar style to the glitch pop skins. While having a playful spray paint aesthetic. Within this skin line, the gun with the most unique variant is the sheriff's skin. Rocking a dragon and flair vibe on the main skin. It also consists of a bullet, tongue and jaw similar to that of a monster.

The Tilde skin line includes the following guns:
These skins have a formal silver colorway with a gold accent. Upon inspection in-game, the guns have a nice matte finish as well. A sleek and classic style.
Finally, we have the Topotek skin line which offers the best of both worlds. The guns featured on this skin line are:
These guns have a metallic feel to them. Similar to the Tilde skin line they rock a heavy silver border on some guns. While still borrowing from the color and style of the Signature skin line including blue and purple accents.
Should you buy the Episode 6 Act 2 Valorant Battle Pass?
The skins in this battle pass pack quite the punch. The Tilde skin line has that classic, metallic vibe to it. The Signature skin line is simply a manifestation of the style and aesthetic of street graffiti. And finally, the Topotek skin blends the best of both worlds, offering a futuristic artistic vibe to each of the skins in the game.
All in all, even without an exclusive vandal skin, it seems to be well worth 1000 valorant points. This time it feels like the Riot devs have outdone themselves, and this battle pass is worth the investment.
