Leaks reveal new Valorant skins, gun buddies based on agents
As chatter picks up regarding patches and balance changes fans have likely gotten a sneak peak at the next two skin bundles. Both bundles are for multiple weapons and include other cosmetics like gun buddies, sprays and player cards.
Data miner ValorLeaks produced footage of the new skins in action, and they're unlike anything seen to this point in Valorant.

~ Celestial Ares (1775VP)
~ Celestial Frenzy (1775VP)
~ Celestial Judge (1775VP)
~ Celestial Melee (3550VP)

The Celestial line of skins looks to be inspired by Chinese New Year and is themed around the year of the ox. All weapons in the bundle are bronze with a pulsing light that adds a level of dynamism without going over the top like the GlitchPop! line. As for the melee weapon, the stock knife has been turned into a fan with an ox design on the hilt. The animation also has players slashing through enemies with the fan unfolded.
This line will be available for the Phantom, Ares, Frenzy, and Judge for 1,775 Valorant Points apiece. As per usual, the melee cosmetic will be a little more pricey at 3,550 Valorant Points. Purchased together with the bundle discount, this line of cosmetics should cost 7,100 Valorant Points.

Much more unique are the GO skins, which are heavily inspired by anime and have some of the game’s agents displayed on the guns. This bundle is larger than the Celestial bundle in terms of the number of cosmetics available and arguably much more interesting. Each weapon in the bundle is based on a different agent, combining the different characters with their preferred weapon. For example, the melee skin is a Kunai adorned with a stylized picture of Jett.
The weapons available for this bundle are the Phantom, Spectre, Guardian, and Ghost at 1,775 Valorant Points. The melee cosmetic is also priced at 3,550 Valorant Points. Along with those cosmetics, players can purchase gun buddies, sprays, and player cards for the GO line.
Because of the numbered volume for this bundle, there will likely be more skins added in the future. Both cosmetic bundles will likely be available for purchase soon in the Valorant store.
