Valorant’s Duo’s Day bundle spices up Gun Buddy with love-themed twist

Duo's Day Bundle Valorant

The Duo’s Day bundle in Valorant went live today on Valentine’s Day, coupled with a love-themed twist to the gun buddy!

Valorant is a competitive first-person shooter game developed and published by Riot Games, the company behind the popular League of Legends. Since its release in 2020, many players have enjoyed the game both casually and competitively.

A few things that players look forward to besides the map and agent updates and changes are the new gun skins, buddies, and player cards. Currently, there are 774 weapons skins, 429 gun buddies, and 478 player cards.

For this year’s Valentine’s Day, Valorant released its Duo’s Day Capsule, which includes only a gun buddy, animated player cards, sprays, and titles. The bundle does not include any weapon skins. The limited edition bundle will be available in the store from February 13 to February 28 for 1,650VP. Players should also know that this can only be bought as a bundle.

Many players were outraged by the bundle’s price and what it contained. A Twitter user replied to Valorant’s tweet, saying: “$20 for some cards, sprays and gun buddies? At this point y’all are robbing us.” Another user implied that the game copied the concept of “Milk & Mocha.”

Some players were upset because a screenshot of a previous tweet on February 13 stated that people only needed to log in to acquire the bundle. Despite the bundle being pricey, others still believe that many couples would buy the set.

How the Valorant Duo’s Day Gun Buddy Work

Preeti Khanolkar, the Lead Designer for cosmetic content for the game, shared how the gun buddies from the Duo’s Day bundle work. According to her, the gun buddy has four states:

  1. Normal Solo (No one else on the team has the buddy equipped) – The gun buddy will have a regular happy face (orange).
  2. Normal Duo (Someone else on the team has the buddy equipped) – The gun buddy will have heart-shaped eyes (pink).
  3. Shooting while Solo – The gun buddy will get angry and glow (orange).
  4. Shooting while Duo – The gun buddy will “run” surrounded by hearts and glow (pink).

People are torn whether or not they’ll get it with their duos, but this is a limited edition bundle that won’t appear in the store in the future. Ultimately, it’s up to you to decide!
