The “No Valorant Points In Battle Pass” Explained

It seems Riot is not loosening up on VALORANT points in battle pass, and VALORANT revenue lead Joe “SWAGGERNAU7” Lee decided to answer that as one of the hottest questions fans throw at Riot.

SWAGGERNAU7 steadfastly addressed the “Why can’t players earn VALORANT Points (VP) instead of Radianite in the Battle Pass?” question, and accordingly broke down the company’s decision to avoid offering VP through the progression, all in the Ask VALORANT blog. “We want the battle pass to be the highest value product we offer as well as a compelling experience, but by adding VP as an incentive we hurt our ability to fund our long-term vision for the battle pass,” said Riot dev SWAGGERNAU7.
