Riot Games has announced the next major skin bundle to launch in Valorant, which is the Gravitational Uranium Neuroblaster skin line, or G.U.N. for short. The set turns your weapons into something out of a 1960’s style Sci-Fi adventure, and wouldn’t look out of place in Fallout or The Outer Worlds.
The striking designs in the G.U.N. bundle can be equipped on the Operator, Bucky, Spectre and Classic, with a melee skin also being available alongside a cool robot gun buddy. All of them have a similar design, so picking up the full bundle will give you a great matching set.
The G.U.N. skin bundle is in the premium edition category of skins, which means you can purchase them individually for 1775 Valorant Points. Riot is yet to confirm the total bundle price, but with four weapon skins and a melee option, you would expect it to cost 7100 Valorant Points, as other premium edition skins have done.
The skins are inspired by space exploration and scientific discoveries of the 1960s, with Riot Games mentioning the likes of Frank Herbert, Isaac Asimov, Arthur Charles Clarke, Strugatsky brothers, Ivan Yefremov and many other authors as inspirations for the skin line. They are certainly striking, and really do change the look of some weapons. The Classic could be difficult to identify compared to other pistols based on the renders we have seen so far.
Riot Games has really been pushing the boat out when it comes to skin designs in Valorant. While the infamous Elder Flame set that turned guns into dragons is perhaps the most well-known example, there have also been a large number of other top quality skins released, with each having a very unique design. From the crazy bright colours of the GlitchPop skin line to the mind-bending space scenes seen in the Nebula bundle, these really are some of the best weapon skins we have ever seen in an FPS.
With Act 2 due to end in a few weeks, you can expect to see a lot of new and high-quality skin lines with the start of Act 3, with a new battle pass expected to bring a number of new skin sets to the game as was the case with Act 2. Exactly what Riot has in store for us remains to be seen, but you can be sure that fans will be quick to snap up any new skins released, as has been the case so far.
