Riot have unveiled the latest skin bundle to come to Valorant and it is one that has been leaked and teased, not once, but twice in the past - yesterday being the most recent.
It's part steampunk, with a touch of the truly futuristic with blue bolts of electricity seemingly following through the weapons with the collection including the following weapons:
- Electroblade Melee
It also includes a Magepunk Card, Spray, and Gun Buddy.
The team behind the skin line spoke of trying to get away from what is typical steampunk aesthetic.

We set out to work on the design and make it feel like it came from a different world than you typically see with steampunk," said Sean Marino, Art Lead on Valorant. "We developed a backstory and a technology source for it, where instead of electricity being discovered at the turn of the century, it was magic. This discovery pushed society much further and we see the technology of that era starting to fuse with more modern designs."
Each skin includes variants, five for the melee and seven for each of the weapons. The variants include a custom muzzle flash and firing audio at level 2, a finisher and kill banner at level 4, and a changing of the colour of the "magic" electricity effect in the weapon with Blue, Green, Purple and Orange available.
When does the Magepunk skin collection come out?
The Magepunk skin collection will be released on 1st April.
How much will it cost?
The Magepunk skin bundle is a Premium Edition (PE) collection and each individual gun skin will cost 1775 VP with the bundle costing 6734 VP, the bundle of course also includes the melee/knife, Card (375 VP) and Spray (325 VP)
