This chapter of the Valorant guide has all the information about the Battlepass - what it is, how much it costs, and whether its Premium version is worth buying.
Battlepass in Valorant is a set of cosmetic items that players can obtain for increasing their Battlepass level. Among the possible rewards, you will find e.g.: weapon skins, sprays, gun buddies charms, character cards, and even some Radiante Points.
Each player is given access to a free version of the Battlepass and can earn rewards labeled as "free". Other prizes are available when you purchase a special Premium version of the Battlepass. The Valorant Battlepass is divided into 10 acts, and on each one, the player can earn a certain number of free rewards (marked with the green frame) and premium prizes (marked with the red frame). Each chapter of the Battlepass contains one or two free rewards.

Premium Battlepass - how much does it cost?
Premium Battle Pass for Valorant costs 1,000 Valorant Points, which is about $10. It is worth noting here that if the player decides to purchase a Premium Battlepass later, they will immediately unlock all cosmetic items and Radiant Points assigned to the player's current Battlepass level.
Battlepass - how much time does it take?
Given the fact that to level up the Battlepass in Valorant and win all 50 exclusive rewards the player needs 1,372,000 XP and has only 2 months to do so, they will have to spend about 100 or even more hours to get everything! The player will need time to complete daily missions (4,000 extra XP) and play several additional matches each day, most of which must be victorious. Of course, they can't miss any of the weekly missions either. Things get complicated when a bad streak hits and matches end with a poor result and losses, such as 3:13. This will make leveling up the Battlepass take more time.
The developers of Valorant have informed the community that to make leveling up the Battlepass easier, the experience points received for performing weekly missions will increase with each successive week. You can get a total of 28,350 XP for completing the first set of weekly missions. Doing the last set will give you 60,750 XP.
Premium Battlepass - is it worth buying?
If getting cosmetic items in Valorant is important to you and you know you will have enough time (about 100 hours throughout 2 months) to level up the Battlepass, the Premium variant will be worth buying. Remember that you don't get any Valorant Points - you won't be able to partially compensate for the purchase.
Battlepass - how to level up fast?
Unlocking all items from Battlepass can take a long time, so it is worth knowing how to speed up this process and how to gain experience points in Valorant. We present several ways that will significantly speed up the process of gaining experience in Valorant and unlock the Battlepass rewards.

Daily and weekly missions
Before you start a match in Valorant, take a moment to check out the available Daily and Weekly Missions. You will learn what to pay extra attention to during the game. You can get a huge amount of extra experience points for completing each of the active tasks.
The current daily and weekly missions available in Valorant always appear on the left side of the game's main screen. The window highlighted in the image above shows that daily missions get reset every day. There are many different daily and weekly missions available in Valorant - they all give you a certain amount of experience points.
Daily and weekly missions - types
Daily missions in Valorant are selected from a specific mission pool and assigned randomly to each player. This means that each player in the team can have different goals to achieve. Among the daily and weekly missions available in Valorant you can find:
- Use the Ultimate ability several times;
- Purchase a certain number of armors;
- Collect the orb that adds one point to the Ultimate ability;
- Purchase a certain number of weapons;
- Plant or disarm a Spike;
- Kill someone with an opponent's gun;
- Score a few headshots;
- Score the first kill of the round;
- Purchase a certain number of skill charges;
- Play a certain number of matches;
- Cause a certain amount of damage;
- Kill an opponent when one of the allies is planting or disarming a Spike.
Some of the daily missions in Valorant can be easily completed during a single match, like those where you have to purchase weapons or armor. Others are more difficult to perform, such as using the ultimate ability 5 times. You will have to play at least two matches to complete it. Weekly missions require more involvement from the player, e.g. play 10 matches or use the character's abilities 200 times. However, the player will be able to earn up to 12,000 additional experience points.
Unlike daily missions, weekly missions in Valorant don't reset. This means that the player has unlimited time to complete them, but they won't get new tasks before the next week starts.
Daily missions - when do they reset?
Each player in Valorant has exactly 24 hours to complete all daily missions. Daily missions in Valorant reset each day at 10:00 a.m. GMT.
Experience points and match result
Playing consecutive matches is the main way of gaining experience points in Valorant. For each round played and/or won, players can earn a certain amount of experience points. At the end of each match, the player is given an accurate summary of the number of Experience Points earned.
- 100 Experience points for each round played;
- 200 experience points for each round won;
- Additional experience points from completing a specific daily mission.
The player can earn points for each round played and/or won - you can get the biggest amount of points by playing even matches that end with a score of 13:12. Therefore, if you want to gain a huge amount of experience per game, you have to give your best and work with the team.
