The All New Map: Breeze
Players were waiting for a new map more than expecting a new character this time. The gamers are on their toes as valorant quotes on their official video “You are now arriving at our Caribbean getaway, Breeze. Don’t get too comfortable. Open spaces and long-range engagements await on Breeze, landing in Act III”. Breeze is a map with good scenery and a perfect Caribbean Island setup, we can’t wait to see the big brain plays as the diversity of the game will change in favor of Breeze.
Valorant doesn’t set back when it comes to their special skin bundles, and this time they have named the new bundle ‘Forsaken’. The new skin bundle matches the vibe of the earlier released ‘Reaver’ skins and also the ‘Sovereign’ skins. The Forsaken skins contain the following weapons: 1. Vandal, 2. Spectre, 3. Operator, 4. Classic, 5. Melee. It also includes a player card, 2 sprays, and a buddy for the weapons. The Forsaken skins include level 4 animations, which means they all will have kill animations. This skin set has 2 variants, one with a dark and more corrupted setup, and the other variant is of the sovereign. Many of the players are referring to the Forsaken skins as ‘Sovereign 2.0’ skins as of the resemblance and earlier released ‘Glitch pop 2.0’ and ‘Prime 2.0’. The Forsaken skins offer a very unique and dark kill animation which we think the players will cherish as the new sound effects are off the charts, the Forsaken kill animation is followed by the death of the certain character to which the dark crow’s dash in and the whole thing fades away in the nick of time.
Alongside an all-new map and the ‘Forsaken skins’ collection, the Act 3 Battle Pass is something that the majority of the valorant fan base is looking forward to.
The All New Battle Pass:
As usual, the Valorant Battle Pass will contain separate reward lines for free and paid tracks. While players can receive the free rewards without having to buy the pass, buying the pass will significantly improve the number and quality of rewards obtained from the pass.
For Free Track:
- Lightwave Frenzy and 3 variants
- Lucky Rabbit Buddy
- Lobster? Spray
- Bloodline Card
- Paul’s Pizza Party Card
For Paid Track:
- Lightwave Phantom (Level 25)
- Depths Vandal (Level 45)
- Songsteel (Melee)
- Mementos Pt. 1 Card
- Knife Fight Card
- Dan the Penguin Buddy
- Get carried Buddy
- Ancient Mysteries Revealed Buddy
- This is also Fine Spray
- Dabbing Dan Spray
The Lightwave skins are color gradient skins and the little strips always change color like an RGB Strip, these skins also offer some cool variants up to your choice at a cost of only 15 Radianite Points. The Songsteel skin on the other hand has a different outlook and is thus like a classy old fashion skin. The Depths skin is a Greenscreen skin and it feels like the weapon is totally a transparent one. This is the first time Riot has included Greenscreen skins to the battle pass and rather than a full bundle.
Apart from skins, cards, and sprays, this battle pass has some cool buddies too. The overall offering of this battle pass is good and by the looks of it, there is a chance that a greater number of players will buy the battle pass this time. Like the previous Battle Passes, the Act 3 Pass will also cost players a pocket pinch of 1000 VP.
New Character Changes Expected?
With the latest character being ‘Astra’ coming out recently we won’t see a new character with the update of this act, but that is very much expected as recently some characters had very vast changes such as ‘Viper’ and ‘Yoru’. Things are settling down as the game is getting balanced day by day as the developers planned, the agents with the least pick rates are getting high pick rates now. Maybe Valorant is waiting for things to settle down after the big changes and that’s the reason why Riot didn’t make any character tweaks this time.
New Weapon Changes Expected?
With all the weapon changes that came with the earlier patch fixing the ‘Stinger’, ‘Frenzy’, and the shotgun ‘Bucky’ there is no further news of any weapon changes in the upcoming patch but there are still some factors to work on. The pros are shifting from the ‘Vandal’ to the ‘Phantom’ which is not at all an expected thing to happen but people are finding Phantom to be more precise and controllable than ‘Vandal’. There are rumors that Valorant might include another weapon into its massive inventory, the rumors are about a Sub-Machine Gun, but as we said it’s basically a rumor. We don’t even know what’s the next new thing that Riot might bring us, it’s always exciting to expect good stuff in the future.
That’s basically it for the whole new Valorant Episode 2 Act 3. Overall the players are very excited and thrilled to have a fairly needed update, Valorant is constantly increasing its popularity as every day more and more players are joining the hustle of the greatly versatile game. Valorant’s animated but appealing graphics and gameplay features have been cherished by the people from the very start, Valorant has become the modern-day competitor of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and many other games. The game brings the players together and offers a pleasant overall experience. We are sure that the players will like the new Act and everything new that comes with it.
