The Valorant Champions 2021 Collections and in-game items were officially announced by Riot Games on Tuesday.

In preparation for the VCT's end-of-year, culminating esports event, Champions 2021, Riot is set to drop a limited-time bundle as the next premium in-game cosmetics offering, as well as some free items that players can earn.

Valorant Champions 2021 Collection

Being that Champions 2021 is set to take place from Dec. 1 to Dec. 12, Riot is planning to get the festivities started early.

On Nov. 24, the Valorant Champions bundle will be going live for 6,264 VP, according to @ValorLeaks on Twitter.

Not only will 50% of the revenue from the bundle be split equally between all Champions-qualified teams, but the offering also will never return to the Store or Night. Market once it leaves the game on Dec. 12.

The Champions 2021 bundle will consist of the Champions 2021 Vandal, three Champions 2021 player cards inspired by the Champions “Die For You” music video, the Champion title, and the Champions 2021 Karambit.

The Champions 2021 Vandal is said to feature the Champions Aura — a glow that appears on the skin when scoring a kill or being held by the top fragger in the match — the instrumental of the Champions anthem on inspect and a unique finisher that will "immerse" players in the world of the music video. Meanwhile, the Champions 2021 Karambit comes with its one-of-a-kind animation and inspect.

When Valorant Champions kicks off on Dec. 1, players should also be on the lookout for several exclusive, limited-time items that can be earned for free via stream drops.

In order to be eligible for drops, players will need to link their Valorant accounts to Twitch, Youtube, Afreeca or Trovo and watch matches during the Champions broadcast and Watch Parties.

Up for grabs will be the VCT spray from Dec. 1 to Dec. 11, while the VCT Gun Buddy will be an exclusive drop during the finals starting at 9 a.m. PT on Dec. 12.

Lastly, Riot has reportedly just granted all active Valorant accounts the Champions 2021 player card for free, so be sure to check your in-game Collection for that.
