Riot Games already has us accustomed to its free to play game philosophy, not only with its flagship League of Legends but also with its new IP, Legends of Runeterra, and Teamfight Tactics. Valorant follows the formula of its predecessors.
It is a game you can play perfectly without investing a single dollar, but the aesthetic accessories are not are included. Below, we explain the two types of coins that we can find in the game and how to get them.
The Valorant Points are the main currency of the title and get real money buying them in the store. With them, we can buy both weapon skins and Radianite points. Of course, these skins are only an aesthetic variant, and at no time will they improve our gameplay or increase our chances of winning. Of course, we will be more handsome.
The current equivalence table of Valorant Points as follows:
- 500 Valorant Points: $5.49
- 1150 Valorant Points: $11.99
- 2150 Valorant Points: $21.99
- 4400 Valorant Points: $43.99
- 5500 Valorant Points: $53.99
- 10500 Valorant Points: $99.99
To get an idea of what we can buy with them, a package with four weapon skins, an axe that replaces the knife, a pair of graffiti, a pendant, and an agent card costs around $70. In addition to the package they offer in-store, we can also purchase individual skins that will rotate weekly. For example, we can get an Operator Deluxe for less than $10 and a Stinger Aristocrat for just over $12.
On the other hand, Radianite Points can be obtained in two ways: with the battle pass or by purchasing them with Valorant Points. Unlike with the other currency, this will not serve us to buy skins but to improve them. In other words, once we have acquired the skin we like the most with Valorant Points, we can improve it in exchange for Radianite Points. These enhancements range from different colors to various visual effects.
Currently, this is the price ratio at which we can acquire radianite in store :
- 20 Radianite points for 1,600 Valorant Points
- 40 Radianite points for 2,800 Valorant Points
- 80 Radianite points for 4,800 Valorant points
Keep in mind that we cannot buy only the number of Valorant Points that we require for a specific skin. Instead, we can only acquire them in the batches specified in the first table. So in most cases, we will have an excess of points that we will have to save until a future purchase.
One of the keys to Valorant is knowing the strategic points to plant or disable the Spike on each of the maps, in addition to gaining control of the area. This is important to achieve more radianite points so you can upgrade your skins and to buy more Valorant points.
