VALORANT Episode 5 Act 3 Battlepass: New skins, Gun Buddies and more

Valorant Episode 5 Act 3’s battlepass will introduce a variety of new skinlines, gun buddies and more!

Valorant Episode 5 Act 3 is soon upon us! And with that comes a brand new battlepass for players to get their hands on. The new act ties in nicely with the recent changes to Fracture and Pearl. Act 3's Battlepass is set to bring new skin lines for the game's most popular weapons, new buddies to kit out those guns with and so much more. Esports.gg has the breakdown of everything to expect in the Valorant Episode 5 Act 3 Battlepass.

When will the Act 3 Battlepass be released?

Riot Games is set to release the Valorant Episode 5 Act 3 battle pass on October 18. From there, players will have until the end of the act's duration to unlock all of the cool accessories that come with it. Every act lasts for around two months, which is more than enough time even for casual Valorant players to climb the levels.

How much will the Act 3 Battlepass cost?

As is the case with every Battlepass thus far, the premium version of Act 3's Battlepass will cost players 1000 Valorant points, which is the equivalent of $10. Players who do not purchase the Battlepass will still have the chance to earn free items for completion of the levels.

What skins will be in the Battlepass?

Riots inspiration around the new Battlepass skins

For this Battlepass, we were inspired by the adventurous nature of our newest Agent, Harbor. We wanted to fill this pass with items that gave a feeling of mystery and beauty. For example, with the Iridian Thron skinline we were trying to create weapons that felt like a fusion between ancient technology and the natural mystery of a rare flower. At the same time we have Starlit Odyssey, the skinline with variants in this battlepass. This skineline takes cues from the tradition of adventurers using the stars to navigate their way to their destination. As always, our Gun Buddies, Sprays and Player Cards take inspiration from a multitude of sources. We hope that there’s something for everyone in the accessories here.
