VALORANT Reveals the Primordium Collection Launching with Episode 8 Act II

Riot Games and VALORANT today revealed the Primordium Collection, a skinline inspired by ancient beings of lava and bedlam. Featuring a lava thematic that flows with growing intensity the more a player fires and when the weapon is cooling down in between, this skinline will also introduce a new dual sword melee archetype with brand new unique attack, running, and equip animations – the Blades of Primordia.
