Weapons or Characters skins have been common business models for free-to-play games. Over the years this trend has been adopted by popular games such as PUBG: Battlegrounds, Fortnite, Apex Legends and many more. Similarly, Valorant is not an exception here. Since its early release, VALORANT quickly grabbed gamers’ attention with its unique gun skin styles. Valorant skins

We can’t forget the early days’ craze of Elderflame and Reaver skins bundle. One thing was pinching at that time: the high cost of the VALORANT bundle, which still stands true now. But what if I say that VALORANT is silently increasing the VALORANT Skins bundle price? and surprisingly this is not happening all of a sudden, but for a while now.

One of the discussions on Reddit perfectly raised this issue with some users. Although this thread is four months old now, now things are becoming more noticeable. He noted that bundles like the crimson dragon and the soul strive cost the same as the Reaver but the animation quality and variants are not even fractions of that. He also mentioned that Revear 2.0 knife cost more than the rest of the bundle. To be honest, it is correct even if we take the currently released Oni 2.0 bundle. The melee weapon skin cost more than half of the bundle price.

Is Valorant Skins Bundle Cost Justified?

Before answering this question, we must have a clear picture of how much it takes to develop skins in any game. The cost of developing a skin in Valorant and CS:GO can vary widely depending on several factors such as the complexity of the design, the experience of the designer, the time required to create the skin, and the tools used to create it.

In general, the cost of developing a skin can range from a few hundred dollars to several thousand dollars. A simple skin with basic design elements may cost less, while a more complex skin with unique textures, animations, and effects may cost significantly more.

However, whether or not the high prices of skins in these games are considered “legit” is subjective and can vary depending on personal opinions and perspectives. Some players may be willing to pay premium prices for unique and rare skins, while others may not see the value in spending large amounts of money on virtual items.

Ultimately, the pricing of skins in CS:GO and Valorant are determined by the market, and players are free to decide whether or not they want to invest in them based on their personal preferences and budget.
