How To Redeem New Valorant Player Card YR1?

If you did redeem the Duality card from Valorant’s site, this process will seem completely familiar. Most importantly, note that the card will be available from 9th June to redeem.

To redeem the new Valorant player card called YR1, follow these simple steps on 9th June:

  • Go and login from your Riot account on this site.
  • Enter the code “YR1”.
  • Redeem your free new limited edition YR1 Valorant Player card.

The site is currently facing issues at the time of writing which is common for such times.

Update: Riot changed the information around the 1st card and have updated their announcement’s info as: “Keep your eyes peeled for where to find this drop” instead of the code and the site link. We will keep you updated when the announcement updates as well.

Moreover, there are 2 more player cards coming your way from Riot. They promise to release 3 in total to celebrate Year 1 of Valorant and this one is for Episode 1.

The game’s Episode 2 will also have a Player Card that you can redeem via “a special YR1 Prime Gaming Drop” on or from 14th June. As for Episode 3’s Player card, it will be available in the YR1 Event Pass in-game that releases on 22nd June.
