Valorant Episode 8 Act 1 Release Date

Tuesday, January 10, 2024, is when Valorant Episode 8 Act 1 is anticipated to be released.

Riot Games typically releases updates on Tuesdays, so given that the current Battle Pass expires on January 9th, it is quite likely that the upcoming update will arrive on January 10th. A few hours prior to the update becoming available, players can anticipate that the servers will be down for maintenance; at this period, the game will not be accessible.

A new battle pass with corresponding cosmetic prizes is the very least that can be expected in terms of content from Valorant Episode 8 Act 1. Still, it wouldn't be out of the question to expect a new skin bundle in addition to a new weapon—the Valorant Outlaw weapon.

Valorant Episode 8 Act 1 Weapon - Outlaw

The Valorant Outlaw, akin to a beefed-up Marshal, has been detailed by data miner valohabercisi. This sniper rifle can eliminate partially armored foes with a single shot, firing twice per click like the Shorty, delivering 140 damage on body shots.

While the Outlaw's single-shot capability against half-armored enemies is formidable, missing the two available bullets requires a retreat for reloading. It's a solid choice for players favoring long sightlines on larger maps, offering high stopping power, especially against economically challenged or resource-deprived teams.

Here are the leaked stats of the Valorant Outlaw weapon:

    • Head - 238
    • Body - 140
    • Legs - 119
  • Mag Size: 2, 10 in Reserve
  • 1.25s Equip Time, 2.75 Firerate, 80% running speed
  • 1 Scope Level akin to the marshal; unscoped accuracy sits between the marshal and the operator.
  • The gun boasts the highest penetration possible.

Another unconfirmed aspect is that the Outlaw's reload speed might be quicker when one bullet remains in the magazine.

Valorant Episode 8 Act 1 Launch Bundle - Kuronami

Almost every new patch in VALORANT introduces fresh skin bundles, and Episode 8 Act 1 won't be an exception. Recent leaks confirm the Kuronami skin bundle for this Act.

Presently, only the images of the Vandal and melee skins from the Kuronami bundle have been unveiled. The Kuronami Vandal and melee, with its purple hue, might bear a resemblance to the Reaver Vandal at first glance.

The other weapons featured in the Valorant Kuronami bundle include:

  • Vandal
  • Sheriff
  • Spectre
  • Marshal
  • Melee

Currently, it seems the Kuronami skin bundle might belong to the Premium Edition category. If so, expect a price of 8700 VP for the entire bundle.

Valorant Episode 8 Act 2 Agent 25: Smokedancer

With the release of Valorant Episode 8 Act 2, players can expect the debut of a new agent—though not in Act 1.

According to the leaks, the Valorant Agent 25, also known as Smokedancer, is a Controller with stunning visuals and mesmerizing pink smoke abilities. Riot Games hasn't disclosed many details regarding Smokedancer, but leaks have shown that this agent will have special gameplay features.

An image reportedly teasing Valorant Agent 25 was posted by renowned leaker ValorLeaks. The artwork seems to indicate a connection between butterflies or flying insects and the new agent's kit, despite its cryptic nature. A cocoon and a butterfly emerging from it are shown in the teaser, suggesting possible Valorant Agent 25 skills.
