The latest Valorant update will have a new currency that will help players to unlock a variety of cosmetics. These credits will be earned even when players are completing dailies or the agent contacts.
These will be used everywhere, from unlocking agents, getting cosmetics and more.
Agent contracts have been changed to be Agent Recruitment events, where the free event pass will automatically activate the day the new agent releases. This will stay active for a few weeks. Progress will be obtained by playing, but players can also buy the agent with VP if they want it urgently.
If you couldn’t unlock the agent through the event you can spend Kingdom Credits to unlock it from the Valorant Store, after the end of the event.
Agent Gear and Accessory Store
The new update will have agent exclusive gear that can be unlocked using Kingdom Credits. The Accessory store will be a brand new addition to Valorant, and will contain refreshing rewards from previous battle passes. These will refresh every week and will require Kingdom credits to purchase.
