Wondering how to get the "Keep it Safer" Gun Buddy in Valorant? We've got you covered.

At the start of 2022, Riot Games officially launched its two-factor authentication (2FA) electronic security measures to help keep its players' accounts safe across the Riot Client, Riot Mobile and RiotGames.com.

Per Riot, over five million players have enabled 2FA since. In celebration, as well as to encourage more players to follow suit, Riot has released some exclusive in-game rewards for anyone who's had, or now enables 2FA in League of Legends, Valorant, Legends of Runeterra and Teamfight Tactics. Here's a breakdown of how to get the Keep it Safer Gun Buddy in Valorant.

How to Get the ‘Keep it Safer’ Gun Buddy in Valorant

To get the Keep it Safer Gun Buddy, players simply need to verify their email on their accounts page, and then enable 2FA.

For those who have already had 2FA enabled, it does seem that you need to disable 2FA and then re-enable it to get the buddy.

If done properly, the Keep it Safer buddy will automatically be added to your Valorant Collection.

As mentioned earlier, all players can earn this reward moving forward, and it doesn't appear that there is an expiration date for the promo in sight.

Ultimately, enabling 2FA is a smart idea in just about every case applicable as it helps keep your account protected from potential threats. By enabling 2FA, you’ll be protecting your password, payment information and your champions and collections. While this is an opt-in feature, all players should enable 2FA to gain an extra level of security and peace of mind.
