How to Get Free Skins in Valorant (In-Game Methods)
Riot Games' Valorant has arguably the coolest weapon skins you can get in online games. Some skins deck out way more for your gameplay than just a shiny new look—some have epic reload animations, some come with dope kill animation effects, and some have awesome new kill signs when you get multi-kills. Most of these cool skins have a nice fat price tag on them, though they do make the default weapons look a bit dull. However, there are ways to deck out your loadout without spending any cash! Keep reading to find out. Method 1: Obtain Free Valorant Skins Through Battle Pass Chapter Rewards Many active online games these days have battle passes loaded with cool items you can get just by playing the game and completing challenges. In Valorant, they're called "Act Passes." There are 2 tiers to the Act Pass; the paid-for premium tier loaded with themed goodies and the free tier. By playing matches and earning XP during the seasonal chapter, you'll gain levels on your battle pass and unlock some free cosmetics! If that premium tier is speaking to you, though, consider using Buff to upgrade to premium for free! Each Valorant Act Pass usually offers these free rewards: 3 player cards3 player titles3 gunbuddies (charms)2 sprays2 sets of 10 Radianite Points1 sidearm skin Method 2: Obtain Free Valorant Skins Through the Activation of Agent Contracts Agent contracts are a system that Riot Games implemented to get you to unlock new agents for your roster and get free cosmetics along the way. Agent contracts have 10 levels to get through by accumulating XP from games, and it's split into two chapters. Hitting level 5 (completing chapter 1) will unlock your new agent, and completing chapter 2 at level 10 will get you a flashy new sidearm skin. Just remember, you can only have 1 active contract at a time! Here's a breakdown of what you'll get per level: Chapter 1 Level 1: SprayLevel 2: Player CardLevel 3: Player TitleLevel 4: SprayLevel 5: Agent Chapter 2 Level 6: GunbuddyLevel 7: SprayLevel 8: Player TitleLevel 9: Player CardLevel 10: Weapon Skin We think it's pretty nice that Riot Games lets you keep your game free-to-play and earn cosmetic items without spending a cent. Though the items are a little less flashy, they're certainly worth the effort!

Online Call of Duty Tournaments—Entry Criteria Explained
Though the history of esports is shorter than that of traditional sports, its growth has been explosive. League of Legends went from a basement project to facilitating a live esports tournament that sold out the Staple’s Center (now the Crypto.com Arena), the same place as many music and sporting events like the NBA finals, in just a few years' time. The rising prize pools have reflected the growth in the popularity of esports, and one of the best ways to earn potentially millions from your blood, sweat, and controller crud is still through Call of Duty, one of the most OG games around. To see if you have what it takes (other than the skills to fend off all the sweaties) you need to make sure you meet the eligibility requirements to participate in online COD tournaments.

Is Rainbow Six Siege Still Popular
From its release in 2015, the Rainbow Six: Siege scene has come a considerably long way. With 11 maps and 43 new operators added to the game, there is no lack of complexity that R6 brings to the table. Every season, Ubisoft seems to 1-up their own cosmetics and game modes, bringing constant map changes and balances to the game—but is it enough to keep the player base active today? If you enjoy playing Rainbow 6: Siege, try out Buff for some free rewards, and keep reading to learn more about the active player count. Striking R6 Siege Statistics Rainbow 6: Siege steadily grew in popularity until it reached its first major peak of 176,000 players in March 2018, when the Outbreak game mode was first introduced. This game mode did so well that it served as a direct inspiration for Ubisoft's more recent game: Tom Clancy's Rainbow 6: Extraction, and it is still one of the highest-paid eSports titles today. The Effect of COVID-19 In the first quarter of 2020, there was a massive growth of interest in R6 when the COVID-19 pandemic hit. 15 million new registered accounts were made for the game, pushing the total registered accounts on all platforms up to 70 million! The game reached its highest peak to date in March 2021, with over 200,000 players actively playing at the launch of the Crimson Heist seasonal update, alongside a free-to-play weekend event. The State of R6 Now Since March 2021, the game has sadly seen a steady decline in players, currently showing a peak of 60,000 players, which is a massive 70% drop in player activity. The player count has not been that low since July 2017. It seems that Ubisoft will have to market and launch something big for Siege to bring back some of its player base; otherwise, we might see the game continue to lose popularity and eventually die out.
