Valorant Episode 4 is about to launch its final act, and of course, there is a new Battle Pass for players to buy and play through the course of their next two months. As always, though, the big question is whether it’s worth it for the cash. Here we’ll be revealing the weapon skins and everything else that’s new.
First things first, Riot Games ‘Valorant producer Laura Baltzer highlighted some of the creative thinking behind The Battle Pass’ design in a press release sent to Twinfinite:
“This battlepass with players of a wide variety of skinlines that we wanted to create. Players who’ve been with us for a long time have taken on a new take on the .SYS line. This line has a Vandal, Bucky, Sheriff, Stinger, as well as a Melee. This is the pass for our variant skinline: Cobra which has a more grounded look and feel. Finally, Hue Shift is for players who can’t decide between having a pink or blue weapon;)
As usual, the Battle Pass will cost 1,000 VP and feature both free and paid tiers, with each reward spread across weapon skins, gun buddies, player cards, sprays, and Radianite points (to upgrade premium skins).

Here’s a look at examples of each skin line:

Is Valorant Episode 4, Act 3 Battle Pass Worth It?
Ultimately, whether you think this latest Valorant BP is worth buying is your personal taste, but if you ask us, it’s a pretty strong showing. The .SYS skin line, in particular, is very snazzy and wouldn’t look out of place as a standalone, cheaper premium skin advertized on the store. The melee Axe is a design we’ve seen before, but again, it looks cool in the .SYS aesthetic. The other two skin lines are also neat in their own right, and the various player cards featured in The Pass are also solid.
Obviously, for those who are certain they’ll be playing a lot of Valorant over the next two months then it’s not worth it. After all, it takes quite a few hours of gameplay to unlock all the tiers, and if you’re after the melee weapon (which is usually one of the final tiers), you’ll need to put in a fair bit of gameplay get it.
Still, you can always accelerate the process by making sure you’re ticking off the daily and weekly challenges.
