Game company Riot Games has released information about the new Battlepass for Valorant for Episode 3, Act I.
Senior Producer Preeti Khanolkar shared their goals for designing the Battlepass. She revealed that they wanted to create content that would appeal to a wide and diverse audience. “A player may not like everything in the battlepass, but there should always be at least one thing they absolutely love.”
Khanolkar revealed that the team created the K/TAC and Jigsaw pistol skins as recalls for the acquaintance and agents. They wanted this pass to be a reflection of the past, as it’s been a year since the game launched. They also wanted to make things that players will find funny, such as the “Too Heavy” and Clutch of Kick sprays.
The K/TAC skins were actually based on/inspired by the old Kingdom gun skin designs. The Jigsaw skins were due to their love of the most important art for all agents and they wanted to use it somehow. There are variants for agents such as Killjoy, Skye, Yoru and Astra.
The senior producer also shared that this particular battlepass was the most fun metagame content they’ve ever done. Players loved what they did in the past, so they added Force and Save Cards, Max Money, Clutch of Kick and No Pen sprays, and Naked Op Card. The Competitive Team has also asked them to add the highly increased and greatly decreased sprays as a small thank you to the community for all the feedback on the ranked system.
