Valorant Episode 5 Act 2 is releasing on 23rd August, which means the ranks will be reset along with the introduction of new in-game items to the game, including a new Battle Pass. Valorant Episode 5 Act 2 or the 5.04 patch won't feature any new agent or map. Instead, it will have some quality-of-life updates, including the addition of custom crosshair color.

If you have been playing Valorant, you might be familiar with all the amazing in-game cosmetics Riot Games releases for their player base, including the unique gun skins, player cards, sprays, and more.

Though some of these cosmetics are time-limited and a bit expensive, Riot introduced the battle pass system to solve this issue. This allowed players to grab some beautiful and unique in-game cosmetics at a reasonable price.

Valorant battle pass costs 1000 VP, which is approximately equal to $10, but if you are not happy to spend any money, you can still grab the free rewards by leveling up.

The Valorant battle pass has a total of 50 Tiers, and each tier offers unique rewards, including gun skins, gun buddies, sprays, titles, and Radianite Points, and all of these can be unlocked if you purchase the battle pass.

Each Act has its own unique battle pass rewards, and the Valorant Episode 5 Act 2 isn't different; if you are wondering if the new battle pass is worth buying or not, keep reading to get the answer.

Well, this time, the answer is a bit complicated, as the rewards available in the new battle pass are not as appealing as some of the previous ones. The Valorant Episode 5 Act 2 battle pass has a central theme of Myths and Legends; some might like the concept, others might not.

Laura Baltzer, the Producer, said, "We did this for a few reasons. We wanted the Battlepass to reflect some of the things that were going on in VALORANT and make it feel like a memorable part of this moment in time for players."

She further added, "Champions is just around the corner, and we can't wait to see what legends are born from it. Also, at the beginning of Episode 5, we saw in our Shattered cinematic that our Agents saw themselves in a heroic light. When players equip the Obsidiana or the Immortalized Vandal, we want them to feel just as legendary on their ranked climb as the pros playing on the main stage, or as our Agents immortalized in comic books."

If we go through the Battle Pass rewards, it offers loads of gun skins, including Vandal, Phantom, Ghost, Classic, Melee, and more, along with funny sprays and player cards.

But the question arises, are these cosmetics worth $10 for players like me who like elegant cosmetics and already have other skins, including the fancy RGB butterfly knife and other items in the game? The answer is no; I don't think the new Battle Pass is worth it.

Although if you are one of the players who have just started playing the game or someone who doesn't want to spend on the Skin Bundles and wants to have some skins in the game, then you should purchase the new battle pass as it will provide a lot of value to your Valorant Collection.

The battle pass also allows you to get free Radianite Points that can help you to upgrade your skins, along with a Piedra Del Sol Melee. This isn't the greatest battle pass Melee we have seen, but you can equip it if you are bored with your default melee.
