Should you buy the Lunar New Year bundle in Valorant?
Unlike in other shooter games, skins for your guns in Valorant do not provide any sort of advantage. They do not make your aim better nor do they improve your gameplay in either Unrated or Competitive modes in the game. However, some people feel that with the right skin equipped on your gun, you’re sure to have what players call “skin buff”.
This is also where Riot generates most of their income. Since Valorant is a free-to-play game, anyone with a device capable of running the game can play it. Skins are made unique by their design and the effects that they give off. Players also have the ability to purchase bundles at a discounted price. In bundles, you get skins for up to four guns, one melee weapon, and other cosmetics like gun buddies and player cards.
Now that Valorant has released a bundle to celebrate the Lunar New Year, players are weighing their options. Should they buy the bundle or save their VP for the next Night Market drop?
Before we get into it, these are the guns included in the bundle:
As for the extra items you get by buying the Lunar New Year bundle in Valorant, you will get a melee weapon, Gun Buddy, Spray, and Player Card.
Is it worth buying?
At first glance, the bundle looks interesting. The skins for both the guns and the melee weapon are covered in blue marble with gold wavy patterns. However, the only catch to this bundle is that the skins do not have any sort of effects. Aside from the visual effects of the melee weapon, there aren’t any Finishers or other effects for the guns.
- Based on that alone, it’s already looking like the Lunar New Year bundle in Valorant is not worth buying. You’re better off saving your Valorant Points for guns that have special effects.
- Before the Lunar New Year bundle dropped, the Araxys bundle was available for a limited time. This is a top-tier skin bundle where every gun had Finishers and other variants you can purchase.
- The only purchase that’s worth it in this bundle is the Gun Buddy, in our honest opinion. The melee skin comes in second for its design. Other than that, we don’t see the gun skins as a purchase that is worth it.
- If you really want to make the most out of your purchases, consider waiting for other guns that may appear in your daily Store rotation. Moreover, you can wait for the next scheduled Night Market in Valorant.
