Prime Gaming subscribers, VCT viewers, and regular Valorant players already benefit from freebies, but Riot has new plans to reward those extra cautious with their accounts’ security. To guard the accounts with exorbitant skins and progress, Riot introduced 2FA (two-factor authentication), but a few were actually using it. So now, the developer is convincing the players by offering free items. 

Players across Riot’s various titles, including League of Legends, Legends of Runeterra, Teamfight Tactics, and Valorant, will get in-game cosmetics just for activating 2FA. So, If you haven’t enabled 2FA yet, you should! Besides receiving gifts, you’ll be protecting your password, payment information, and all your collections.

How to get the Keep It Safer gun buddy in Valorant

Riot is offering a golden lock chain called Keep It Safer gun buddy to those who enable their 2FA in Valorant. The tiny gun charm goes well with all your golden and black weapon skins. 

In Valorant, cosmetics can cost an arm and a leg. Due to the rarity of skins, collectors often stack up items that are time-limited and hence, highly sought-after. So, it’s crucial to double-check all locks in order to protect your valuable inventory. However, by enabling 2FA, players will be handing the keys to Riot’s credible hands to protect their accounts. 

Now, every time you attempt to sign in, you’ll receive an email containing a unique six-digit code. Enter that code into the prompt then continue logging in as normal.
