A new weapon pack has been revealed for Valorant which turns the game's guns into dragons – and will cost you nearly $100 dollars for the full arsenal. You can check out the Elderflame skin reveal trailer here, with the first "Ultra Edition" guns arriving in-game this Friday, the July 10.
The developer has gone above and beyond as far as cosmetics are concerned - the guns are literally sentient dragons, and will emote when you get kills, reload, aim down the sight and so on. Even the bullets appear like fire shooting from the mythical creature's mouth. Whether it's all a bit too garish to allow for proper focus in a tense match is another story... Regardless of your opinion on these new cosmetics, the price is something to behold. Valorant's Revenue Lead Joe Lee posted the breakdown to Twitter, noting that the full set will cost you 9900 Valorant Points. The closest VP bundle you can buy is 11,000 VP for $100, so be prepared to shell out if you want the full set.

You can also purchase it using real money to quickly level up and unlock every animation for each gun. A fully tricked out Elderflame set is potentially going to cost you a lot of money. We reviewed Valorant back in early June, scoring it a 9/10 and calling it a "clever tactical hero shooter that's plenty deep."
