The Valorant Kuronami skins are coming in Episode 8 with a one-of-a-kind finishing animation.
Valorant Episode 8 Act 1 is just a few days away, and the major update is bringing everything from fresh cosmetics to new weapons to Riot Games' FPS. The Outlaw Sniper is set to make its debut in Valorant on Jan. 10, joining the Marshal and Operator as the third sniper in the game. Plus, Icebox is back with some changes to the B Site, and Lotus is launching with significant adjustments as well.
Additionally, a new skinline is hitting the Store that fans are eager to purchase. Here's a breakdown of the Valorant Kuronami Bundle's weapons, price, and release date.
Valorant Kuronami Skins: Weapons
The Valorant Kuronami Bundle comes with skins for the following weapons:
- Melee (Kuronami no Yaiba)
Each weapon will contain a white, black, purple, and blue variant. Plus, if you manage to get the final kill in a round using a weapon equipped with a Kuronami skin, you will see its finishing animation, which traps your opponent in a large smoke, and then summons a thunderstorm to the map. Check out the finishing animation in action below.
Valorant Kuronami Skins: Price
The Valorant Kuronami skins cost 9,500 VP for the entire bundle. Each skin costs 2,375 VP, and the Melee is priced at 5,350 VP.
At first glance, the prices might seem a bit high, but the Bundle will likely headline the upcoming Episode, and therefore priced as you would expect.
If you are running a bit low on VP after Episode 7 Act 3, you can purchase more in-game currency from Valorant. Simply click the VP icon next to the Store tab, and follow the on-screen instructions to add more VP to your account.
Valorant Kuronami Skins: Release Date
The Valorant Kuronami skins will likely be released on Wednesday, Jan. 10, 2024, as Episode 8 Act 1 goes live. Riot Games always ushers in a new Act with an S-Tier bundle, and it seems like the Kuronami skins are ready for their moment in the spotlight.
