Riot Games recently released the Year One Anthem trailer for Valorant and some sharp-eyed fans were quick to spot a new melee skin. In the video, at 3.15 timestamp, Riot teased a Zedd-themed melee weapon skin that is likely to be added in the future.
The item looks like a sword with the letter ‘Z’ on its hilt and a pink-tinted blade. This weapon skin seems to be inspired by world-renown DJ Zedd who also happens to be a huge Valorant fan. Apart from the Z on the hilt, his name can also be seen in the background. He also made an appearance in the Year One Anthem video.
As of now, neither Riot nor Zedd has confirmed anything about the addition of a new melee weapon skin. Valorant currently houses more than 30 knife skins with varied looks and styles. If Riot adds this Zedd-themed skin, it would be the first celebrity-themed skin in the game and players would definitely want to get their hands on it.
Make way for Episode 3
Riot is releasing Act 1 of Episode 3: Reflection in Valorant later today. An update will be rolled out that will bring a new battle pass and new weapon skins to the game. It is likely that Riot will add the Zedd-themed skin with this update itself or in future acts. Additionally, a new agent called ‘KAY/O’ is coming to Valorant.
