  • You may also want to read the developers’ statement upon the return of the Reaver on Valorant on their official website. They said, “We’ve seen so many of you in our own games use the OG Reaver skins and it’s been such a thrill to see pros use it during esports tournaments (remember, we weren’t even sure if our top players would want to use premium skins due to gameplay concerns). And we’ve put so much love and care into this skin set in hopes of pleasing all of you. That’s why we hope to see you all fall in love with this new Reaver set just like we have (especially the karambit white variant, which has become a dev team favorite—we literally got a message today that said “it is so sick holy smokes”).

We do hope we can see the newest skinline weeks from now on Valorant!
