Valorant’s closed beta is in full swing, with ranked mode recently going live. For players who are lucky enough to get into closed beta. There are a few incentives for the players who grind enough to earn those rewards. Riot has released plans for a full store and a detailed breakdown of cosmetics and how they will function in-game.
Skins will be designed with purely cosmetic intentions in mind, if a skin was implemented that provides an in-game advantage, this is an error and Riot has pledged to fix all such issues. It is unclear at this time if cosmetics will also extend to agent skins (currently only weapon skins are available in the closed beta).
Skins will also never change the audio sounds in-game or obstruct vision more than the base skin would. One such skin available in-game is the “Reaver”. Weapon skins can also be evolved over time using Radiante points. The primary way to earn Radiante points will be the Battle Pass (will not be available till full launch), however Radiante points can also be purchased in the store.
Currently, when the closed beta ends all player progress will reset, with the exception of a closed beta gun buddy
Players can also obtain a player card via watching on twitch, to earn drops, which is currently the only way to enter the closed beta.
As thanks for all your interest in the VALORANT closed beta and hanging out with the @Twitch community, we have a small gift: an exclusive player card for anyone who's watched enough streams to be eligible for CB. Even if you don't get in, this'll be in your account at launch. pic.twitter.com/a1BV1DGVg1— VALORANT (@PlayVALORANT) May 4, 2020
