Next is an exclusive "Dad Hat Buddy." The Gun Buddy is available at the end of LOCK//IN. You need to watch the Grand Finals on March 4. It will be a best-of-five series to determine the winner of the competition, so why not enjoy it and get yourself an in-game item by simply being in the stream.

How to earn the VCT LOCK//IN drops

Before you can earn the VCT LOCK//IN drops, you'll need to connect your VALORANT account with your YouTube or Twitch account. Riot has put together helpful guides on how to do so for both streaming platforms.

Once your account has been linked to your preferred viewing destination, all you need to do is watch during the aforementioned periods on a channel with drops enabled. You'll receive a notification saying the reward has been earned, which will allow you to claim it and acquire it in VALORANT.
