Valorant’s Champions 2021 bundle may have convinced dedicated players to spend big bucks, but Félix “xQc” Lengyel doesn’t agree. Though it didn’t stop him from accidentally buying a particularly expensive item. 

Valorant Champions Tour has wrapped up in Berlin with Acend as the ultimate Champions of 2021. To commemorate the event, Riot Games introduced a sleek-looking royal bundle in Champions 2021, which can be a bit too pricey for the average Valorant fan. Popular Twitch streamer xQc agreed that no one should buy the “s—” skins, but he accidentally ended up purchasing them anyway. 

Valorant’s over-the-top animated skins can make the playing experience all the better. The custom sound elements are worth every penny to some players as they help players to feel more confident. However, Riot Games went a little overboard with the latest limited-edition Champions 2021 bundle price tag. A mere two guns cost almost $90, beyond most players’ price range by far. 

xQc recently logged into Valorant and casually took a look at the market that also featured Champions 2021 bundle that has raised about $15 million for Riot Games. The popular streamer gave his verdict on the pricey karambit worth over $50, calling it “s—.” 

“Who the f— would buy this s—?” xQc said right before clicking on the buy icon. “Ah! I just bought it.”

The buying process for Valorant skins is pretty simple. If you already have Valorant points in your account, all you have to do is click on the green purchase button. That’s precisely what xQc did since he already had the required VP. His lack of Valorant knowledge cost him $50 that he spent on a melee skin he didn’t even like. 

xQc is a variety streamer who plays a variety of games on his stream and isn’t as intimately familiar with Valorant. So it makes sense why he’d make the mistake of buying an overpriced karambit. For what it’s worth, the karambit knife will become of the rarest Valorant skins once it’s off the market. So xQc’s money hasn’t just gone down the drain. The Champions 2021 bundle is one of the most valuable skin lines in Valorant, and it’s worth the hefty price tag for many.
