What does the RiotX Arcane event mean for Valorant? Let's find out!
The release of the long-awaited animated series from Riot called "Arcane" is coming up next week. You'll be able to watch it on Netflix on November 7, but (for the first time in Netflix history) you can watch its first episode on Twitch.tv and earn additional in-game rewards for doing so! As you can guess, RiotX Arcane is a big thing for League of Legends enthusiasts, but Riot has made sure that fans of all their games will benefit from it; you can get a free Valorant gun buddy for watching the first episode of Arcane on Twitch.
If you want to claim it or are interested in what Riot has in store for other games, be sure to check out our article on it here. Meanwhile, let's focus on what else the RiotX Arcane event entails for Valorant enthusiasts because it doesn't end with one free gun buddy.
Valorant Arcane Pass
To celebrate the release of Arcane, we got a free Battle Pass called the "RiotX Arcane Pass". It's virtually 10 free goodies that you can get until November 22 for earning XP. And it's super easy to complete, you can do the entire Arcane Pass in a few hours if you really try. Here's what the Arcane Pass rewards look like for every tier:
|Tier||Reward||Required amount of XP|
|Tier 1||"Arcane" Title||4000|
|Tier 2||"Welcome To Undercity" Card||4500|
|Tier 3||10 Radianite Points||5000|
|Tier 4||"Calculated" Spray||5500|
|Tier 5||"Liar" Title||6000|
|Tier 6||"Arcane Embrace" Card||6500|
|Tier 7||10 Radianite Points||7000|
|Tier 8||"BOOM!" Spray||7500|
|Tier 9||"Cupcake" Title||8000|
|Tier 10||"Arcane Cupcake" Gun Buddy||8500|
So, 3 titles, 2 player cards, 2 sprays, 20 Radianite Points, and a gun buddy! When you combine that with the fact that we have more than 2 weeks to do this and can do it in virtually one day, it sounds super good.

Arcane Collector's Set
In addition to the free Battle Pass, we also got a pretty exciting bundle in an entirely different style than all the previous ones. It's called "Arcane Collector's Set," and it's a bundle with cosmetic items related to Jinx from League of Legends. You can find it in the Valorant Store, right next to the new skin line.
Arcane Collector's Set contains five items:
- Upgradeable Sheriff skin
- "Monkey Business" Gun Buddy
- "Jinx" Title
- "TAG! YOU'RE DEAD" Spray
- "Arcane Mysteries" Card
You can't buy any of these cosmetics separately! That said, is it worth those $25? Well, you only get one weapon skin, but keep in mind that those cosmetics are exclusive and probably won't come back to the game ever again. So, if this bundle matches your taste — go for it!
Valorant x Arcane: Summary
Okay, let's summarize what this RiotX Arcane event means to Valorant. We could actually sum it up in 4 points:
- Free gun buddy for watching the first episode of Arcane animation on Twitch
- Arcane Battle Pass with 10 free goodies
- Jinx-themed bundle
In short — lots of free stuff and a fantastic bundle for League of Legends enthusiasts.
