Valorant has officially gone live, and that means there’s a shiny new battle pass full of cosmetics waiting for players. As with the battle passes from many other games, Valorant’s dozens of cosmetic-only items for players to unlock. Players can earn these items by gaining XP from playing the game and completing quests to level up through the pass’ 50 tiers.

The battle pass is tied to the game’s current content episode, called Ignition. Riot will continue to update Valorant with new episodes every few months, in the same way that many games have seasons.

The Episode 1 battle pass sells for 1000 Valorant points ($10). The pass has 12 gun skins and one knife skin, which is the last item to unlock in the pass. On top of those items, the pass also has 130 Radianite Points that players can earn, which can upgrade certain weapon skins in the game.

Players that don’t want to buy the battle pass won’t be left out of the action entirely. Riot is also offering a free pass that will give players a few rewards like titles, sprays, and eventually even a weapon skin. On top of that, everyone, whether they pay or not, will earn XP for the battle pass overall, so if you decide to buy the pass later you’ll get credit for all the tiers you’ve already unlocked.

Riot hasn’t announced how long Episode 1: Ignition will be, or how long players will have to unlock all the tiers in this first battle pass.
