New Valorant ‘Radiant Crisis’ Skin Bundle Features Baseball Bat Melee & Comic-Book Aesthetic

Valorant Episode 3, Act 3 kicks off this week, and while its main attraction, the new Agent Chamber, has been delayed by two weeks, there is at least a new weapon skin bundle to look forward to. It’s called Radiant Crisis, and it’s designed a cool comic-book aesthetic complete with whimsical SFX and animations.

One particularly appealing feature is its melee weapon, a cool baseball bat that is sure to go down a treat with fans of the game.

Sean Marino, associate art director at Riot Games, said of the design process in a press release:

We looked at a number of different comic styles and eras, and even pulled references from some other games over the last few years that have executed a similar-looking 2D style in a 3D world. One of the biggest “Aha!” moments during this reference period was when one of our producers showed us a video of an artist who paints Gundam models as if they were drawn for the manga or anime. This bizarre juxtaposition of seeing something that looked as if it was made for 2D animation but represented as a physical object was exactly that kind of feeling we were going for, and with a combination of styles and references we were able to make something that we feel is incredibly unique for a skin.

Here’s an overview of the bundle’s key features:
