Recently, Mike Shinoda, the co-founder of Linkin Park, confirmed that he is a big fan of VALORANT. In fact, the singer admitted that he is more into Valorant than League of Legends.

Riot Games’ VALORANT is a popular FPS tactical shooter that came out in 2020. The multiplayer game flaunts incredibly competitive gameplay with several unique agents in the game. So, it’s no wonder why the game has become one of the biggest esports titles very quickly.

Of course, Valorant flaunts a playerbase of millions from all parts of the world. But recently, several famous artists are coming forward to admire their love for Riot’s title.

Mike Shinoda Is More “Deeper Into Valorant”

We already know that Anton Zaslavski, also known as ZEDD, is a big fan of Valorant. The popular German DJ has appeared in Valorant’s Year One Anthem video. After that, ZEDD collaborated with Riot to launch the Spectrum skins bundle in the game.

Well, apart from ZEDD, Linking Park’s Mike Shinoda also loves playing VALORANT. The singer confirmed this at the Global Premiere event of Riot Games’ Arcane anime series. The animated show is based on League of Legends, and when asked about the game, Mike said that he played League years ago when the game was a “Little Smaller.” After that, he watched the game from the sidelines, but he is not “super deep” in it. On the other hand, the singer admits that he is a “lot deeper” into VALORANT (Clip via FionnOnFire/Twitter).

We’ve seen Mike streaming Valorant on Twitch several times. However, watching him at the global event of LoL’s Arcane and talking about the FPS was definitely a delight for the fans. Also, this makes us wonder if Riot will someday collaborate with Mike to launch exclusive weapons skins.

Talking about Valorant, the much-awaited Episode 3 Act 3 is finally here. The new Act has arrived with a brand new battle pass and some massive nerfs/buffs. However, the entire community is still waiting to get their hands on Chamber, scheduled to release with Patch 3.10 on November 16th, 2021.
