Since its closed beta phase, the popular game called Valornat has released some of the best weapon cosmetics compared to the other games. Even though they give nothing in the battle, skins are still the most favorite ever since they can make one stand out among the crowds.
There are several types of skins in Valorant. One of the variants is free skins, which are more known as Agent cosmetics. In order to get these kinds of skins, you will have to fulfill the whole contract of the Agents.
Apart from the skins, you may also want to get an in-game currency that is called Valorant Points or VP. This currency is able to be used to buy skins in the game.
