The 2021 Valorant Champions skins earned Riot Games over $18.7 million USD while it was available from the in-game store. The Champions Collection featured only two skins for the Vandal and the karambit, and was priced at 6260 Valorant Points.

The Champions Collection ran from November 24 to December 12, going live the same time as the first VCT. One unique trait of the weapon skins was the glowing effect it had for top fraggers of matches. It also played the official song for VCT 2021, Die For You, when inspected or used to deal a finishing blow to an enemy.

Kath is just a small-time gamer with dreams of getting a simulator game that's like Sims 4, Stardew Valley, and Animal Crossing all rolled into one. In their spare time, Kath hosts streams with friends while playing online multiplayer games like Valorant and Call of Duty. There isn't any type of game Kath shies away from... except if it's a horror game. Make Kath choose between eating a ghost pepper or playing Outlast and they'll endure the pain that comes with eating a ghost pepper. At the moment, Kath is getting lost in the world of Teyvat with Raiden Shogun, Zhongli, and Venti on their current team. Instead of going for the meta, Kath's main goal in Genshin Impact is to have all the Archons on her roster. Ask Kath what Genshin Impact is and prepare yourself for a very lengthy and detailed conversation about the open-world RPG. Aside from gaming, Kath also likes to dabble in playing music and some creative writing. With all of these hobbies and interests, it's a surprise Kath still gets bored from time to time.
