Genshin Impact is cozying up with Valorant in this fun, fan-made crossover that no one expected.
Valorant has previously joined forces with its sister game, League of Legends. But other than that, crossovers have been non-existent for Valorant. That hasn’t stopped creative players from whipping up their own bizarre fusions with other gaming IPs. This new agent-select trailer has proved that Riot’s tactical shooter can blend together with other titles nicely.
A fan redesigned the Genshin Impact using the agent select screen from Valorant. The features of the two games line up surprisingly well.
Valorant player creates a Genshin-style agent screen
A player named Stealthless took a few Genshin Impact characters and added them to Valorant’s agent select screen. Apart from the Valorant theme and overlay, everything was inspired by Genshin’s fantasy world. Ritou, a major city in Genshin Impact, serves as the map. The entire scene looks like Valorant, except the characters and maps are different.
The loading screen then dips to black, transitioning into agent selection. The boxes dividing the characters, powers, background music, and lock icons are all there. However, they include tiny headshots of Genshin characters. Kuki Shinobu appears first, toying with a knife in a way similar to Jett. Her animation is designed to make her look like any other Valorant agent.
The agent selection screen included Valorant-style animations of Yelan, Raiden Shogun, Zhongli, and Venti. Yelan walks into the limelight in Reyna’s style, running to the camera in purple silhouette. Raiden Shogun is animated similarly to Kay/O’s explosive screen with knife-edged fashion and electrical zaps. Zhongli is a mix of Astra and Chamber, whereas Venti looks like the spitting image of Sage.
It’s safe to say Stealthless’ crossover is on point. He’s perfectly incorporated the magical characters of Genshin into Valorant’s stylized menus. This isn’t the first time a fan has combined Valorant with a random game. Previously, a GTA and Valorant crossover made waves for smooth animation and an on-the-spot theme.
Do Valorant skins have an aimbot?
Skins don’t directly impact gameplay and don’t have any aimbot effect, but they do sometimes have visual and audio effects that can make players feel better.
Most Valorant skins share the same sound effects, so you don’t have to buy every new skin to get a boost. Players have said they feel more comfortable or accurate with different skin lines, though this is entirely a placebo effect.
