Valorant developers Sean and Preeti showcase a new upcoming skin collection called ‘Origin’ in an exclusive interview with DiegoteTV. We get an in-depth look at the Premium Edition skin set during the interview, featuring weapons like the Frenzy, Bucky, Vandal, Operator, and Melee. The sci-fi-inspired Origin skin collection will release in Valorant in the next patch.

The skin features a unique inspect (Y key) animation at higher tiers, which causes the weapon to levitate in front of the player until they take action with it. It also features many unique animations at tiers two, three, and four. Players also have a few colorway options to choose from, including default white and gold, black, green, and red. Most notably, though, new sounds come with each weapon.

The Origin skin collection features cosmetics for the following weapons:

  • Frenzy
  • Bucky
  • Vandal
  • Operator
  • Melee

The Origin skin collection features a charging handle and rune carvings. Further leveling up the skins unlock some very cool features in this set. At level two, players will notice a green muzzle flash, and level three brings in a new weapon animation. You’ll also see an equip and reload animation at level three. Finally, level four unlocks the finisher and kill banner.

Origin Melee

The melee is a bladed weapon that slashes instead of stabs. It features the same unique colors and one of the coolest inspect animations we’ve seen yet in a melee weapon.

How much is the Valorant Origin skin bundle?

The Origin skin collection is a Premium Edition skin set, which means each skin costs around 1775 VP, and the whole bundle costs around 7100 VP. Players can pick up the Origin skin collection during the next Valorant update at the in-game store.
