Riot is offering free loot to its players in commemoration of the first year of VALORANT.
What VALORANT officially turned one year old, Riot today unveiled a host of YR1 events. You’ll see a flood of new content, including a limited-edition set of YR1 player cards and a complimentary YR1 event pass.
The player card set celebrates Episodes 1, 2, and 3, and each can be redeemed separately. To redeem the Episode 1 card, you must go to the redemption page from VALORANT on June 9 and use the code YR1. The Episode 2 card is obtained through a special Prime Gaming YR1 drop on June 14. And the Episode 3 card is obtained as a reward in the first pass of the YR1 event.
The YR1 event pass begins on June 22 and lasts until July 6, offering seven levels of exclusive items. Although the battle pass usually costs $ 10, in this case you will not have to spend VP to advance. All you have to do is play, earn XP, and unlock cosmetics, such as the Episode 3 player card and a weapon charm.
There will also be a Community Battle Pass that will be unique to each region, as each region of VALORANT You will vote on the single item that best reflects your region (such as graffiti, weapon charms, and titles). Top rated items will appear in a future “Community” Battle Pass in Episode 4. Voting for this pass will take place locally, so the date for each respective region should be revealed soon.
