Valorant Episode 6 Act 3 features tons of new content including a brand new Premier mode, that allows players to compete against each other in a competitive setting directly in the game client. There is also a brand-new battle pass available with limited-time cosmetics in both the free and premium tiers. If you are looking for a quick summary of the new update, here is a rundown of everything new in the Valorant Episode 6 Act 3 update.

Valorant Episode 6 Act 3 Battle Pass

The new battle pass introduces three new series of cosmetics - Bound, Moondash and Monstrocity.

  • Bound skinline: Bulldog, Classic, Judge, Melee, and Phantom

  • Monstrocity skinline: Ares, Sheriff, Spectre, and Vandal

  • Moondash skinline: Frenzy, Guardian, Marshal, and Stinger

If you want to get all of the skins, you need to purchase the battle pass for 1,000 Valorant Points ($10 USD). There are plenty of free items in the battle pass as well in case you do not want the premium cosmetics.

The mode will allow players to create their own teams and compete in a structured tournament environment within the Valorant client. The weekly matches will kick off on 29th April and the first Playoffs will take place from 21st May.

Balance Changes

There are not too many balance changes in the new Act. Gekko and Killjoy received some minor changes and we also got plenty of bug fixes. You can check out all of the changes in the official patch notes.

When does Valorant Episode 6 Act 3 end?

The ongoing Act should end sometime during late June or early July. Players have plenty of time to complete the new battle pass and we should also get teasers for Episode 7 as we get closer to the end of the current Act.
