Birthdays are meant to be happy events. Our favorite first person shooter is finally turning one. And in order to celebrate this day, Riot Games is handing out a free event pass.

This event pass, dubbed as the YR1 Event Pass will go live on June 22nd, 2021.


Key features of the YR1 Event Pass

This event pass will contain a few cosmetics that you'll be able to use in game. Other than that, you will also receive 20 Radiante points in the game.


You can use these Radiante points to upgrade your gun skins in Valorant. The prices go up as the skin levels increase, but the animations and effects are really cool, so the upgrade doesn't sound quite bad.

That being said, you need to keep in mind that these skins and upgrades provide better cosmetic effects only. It does not affect gameplay in any way.

Moving on, you also get this cool looking reflection card from Episode 3.

You'll also be receiving a cake themed gun buddy, because it's a birthday celebration. And is it even a birthday if there's no cake involved?

And finally, you'll be receiving another Year One card along with the YR1 and Year 1 titles. Pretty cool gifts in my opinion.

That being said, the path ahead for Valorant looks very interesting for now. We'll be seeing a new agent join the ranks very soon. It'll be interesting to see how the community reacts to the new agent.

Furthermore, we're pretty sure that the new agent will shake the meta too with the abilities they have. It'll be fun to watch the new strategies that the community brings to the table with the new agent in the middle of it all.

Here's to a very happy birthday to Valorant!
