Here is a quick guide on how to get the Valorant Ignition player card as well as details on when the next two cards will be available. 

Redeeming the Valorant Ignition Card

Unlike Duality player card which was initially distributed via codes, Riot Games is directly sending out the Valorant Ignition card to all players.
