Developer Riot Games has recently announced that its highly-acclaimed tactical first-person shooter Valorant now has its very first merch line available for players to purchase. The collection of products features clothing items that are themed around Valorant, such as sweatshirts and t-shirts.
All of these items are currently available on Riot Games’ online store, with a price range of about $30-$65. The new merch line was officially released yesterday, and most of the items highlight Valorant’s roster of Agents, with hints of the game’s first Episode called Ignition.
At the moment, the clothing line only has two t-shirts and three sweatshirts available for sale, but Riot Games previously sold a Valorant-themed hat on its merch store. The first apparel on sale is a unisex hoodie called “VALORANT Ignition,” which is priced at $65.

The white-colored hoodie has an image of Jett and Phoenix, two Valorant Agents, emblazoned in the center. There’s also a fine-print text on the image showing the Agents’ respective in-game roles, among other information.
The sides of the hoodie contain more printed designs, while the hem features a tag of Valorant’s logo. At the back of the hoodie, you’ll find a print of the word “FIRE” with a Korean text on top of it, representing Jett’s home country.
There’s also another pullover hoodie available, as well as another similarly-designed zip-up hoodie. Both of these products are listed as “VALORANT PRTCL.” Both are priced at $65 as well, and tout a navy blue color with minimalist designs.
The pullover hoodie has “VLRNT” written on the front as a centerpiece of the whole look, but the hood features multilingual text while “VALORANT” is embellished on the arm. On the other hand, the zip-up version has a small piece of text written on the front which indicates that it is included in the “classified” Ignition protocol.
When used, the zip-up hoodie has “VLRNT PRTCL” written on the back. The inside of the hood also has colorful yet minimalist designs, while the drawstrings and zippers of this specific item of clothing come in bright red.
On the other hand, the Valorant-themed t-shirts are being sold at $30 each. The white “Valorant Agents Tee” showcases some of the game’s original playable characters with the text “VLRNT” printed on top.
Half of the characters are colored in red, while the other half is in black and white. Last but not least, the “Valorant PRTCL Tee” comes in black and has the full VALORANT name written on the front in yet another bright red color. If you view this shirt from the side, you will see “VLRNT PRTCL” written on the lower half of the shirt.
These are all the clothing items currently available in this collection, and Riot Games still hasn’t confirmed whether or not more apparel or other products will be included in the near future.
Valorant continues to rise above the ranks as a battle royale title. Even though the developer had to roll back and then redeploy the game’s 1.11 update recently, the fans’ dedication to the free-to-play title hasn’t wavered.
