If you've ever played Valorant, you'll already know that you can use Valorant Points to purchase skins and cosmetics from the in-game store. You'll also probably be familiar with the fact you have to pay money for these precious points, making those skins seem even more precious, especially if you're purchasing one that can be upgraded with Radianite.

Some of the best skins cost quite a lot of VP, so we understand why anyone would hesitate before spending hard-earned cash for in-game cosmetics. However, there are other ways to get hold of these desirable credits.

How to Get Free Valorant Points

Valorant Points are a primary source of revenue for RIOT Games' FPS title, so we do urge you to support them if you're a big fan of the game, but if you can't afford them right now or you feel bad about using your parents' credit card, here are a few official ways you can get your hands on Valorant Points for free.

Request a Task/Submit an Artwork to Riot Games

RIOT Games has created a nice way for creatives to show their talents by presenting the community with cool opportunities like doing tasks for VP. It turns out that you can submit unique artworks to RIOT Games through their support program, and if they like it, you'll be rewarded with VP straight to your account. Here's how it's done:

  1. Sign in and submit a request in the form of a support ticket over at support-valorant.riotgames.com
  2. Choose “general” as your request type
  3. Make a preposition, and ask RIOT to see if they're willing to take a submission
  4. Wait for an email from RIOT to see if they are willing to give you VP
  5. Draw something unique for your submission—it doesn't necessarily have to be great, it just needs to be different
  6. Send it to RIOT, and the VP should appear in your account in a few days

Join Exclusive Events & Giveaways

There's Nothing Wrong With Free Rewards

With the cosmetic value of the skins in RIOT's FPS title, it makes sense why many people are willing to pay for VP. Although this does help support the devs, some people simply can't afford to spend real money on free games, and there's nothing wrong with getting some free cosmetics with one of the listed RIOT-approved methods.
