Valorant 'Ruination' Weapon Skin Bundle Leaked
By Jack O'Dwyer
Valorant's latest weapon skin bundle has been leaked on Twitter ahead of its official launch.
The leak was brought to light by the HITSCAN team, made up of Ryan (@RyanCentral_) and Mysca (@Mysca_) through both their Twitter and YouTube accounts early on Wednesday, July 7.
The skins, themselves, are invocative of a certain ethereal aesthetic commonly seen in powerful undead or ice-like lich characters. Its primary scheme is a fluctuating dark turquoise crystal with black stainless metal accents that seem to contain the crystal and hold the frame of each weapon. Each gun features a sharp-toothed skull motif on the back, facing the player.
Here's everything we know ahead of its launch.
Valorant "Ruination" Weapon Skin Bundle Leaked
According to the leak brought forward by @HitScan, the set includes skin options for the following weapons:
- New Melee (Ruin King's Sword)
It also includes a spray, player card, and gun charm modeled after the king's wedding ring. There will be color variants for the bundle, as well.
The bundle is set to run alongside the new League of Legends event of the same name—which its visual appearance certainly matches. The colors and aesthetics match the Ruin King to the letter. Valorant developers also pointed out the theme of exclusively outfitting spirit-themed guns in this bundle. They claim Ruination to be on par with their previous large-scale project, "Dragonflame."
As far as a release date goes, fans can expect to see this set hit the in-game shop around the same time the Ruination event for LoL goes live—either on Thursday, July 8, or the days immediately following.
A price point has yet to be confirmed at the time of writing.
