Valorant is a free-to-play game but the community spends heavily on weapon skins and the battle pass. If you’ve purchased a skin accidentally, this guide on how to refund skins and VP (Valorant Points) in Valorant will help you.

Free-to-play with micro-transactions is the most common model for multiplayer games nowadays. From Valorant and Overwatch 2 to Fortnite and Apex Legends, the biggest games in the world are now free-to-play and you can spend real money on skins and cosmetics items.

In competitive games, cosmetics generally do not provide any competitive advantage. Players purchase them majorly to stand out among others and flex their in-game wealth. However, not every purchase leads to the utmost satisfaction and in such a case, requesting a refund is the most obvious choice.

On that note, here’s how to refund skins and VP in Valorant.

Eligibility criteria to refund skins and VP in Valorant

Valorant initiates refunds only on unused in-game content and unused VP purchased within the last 14 days. Do note that in-game content is considered used once you’ve entered the loading screen of a match in any game mode (including custom games and practice).

Based on these criteria, you cannot get a refund for the following items in Valorant:

  • Used weapon skins
  • Upgraded weapon skins
  • Used in-game cosmetics such as player cards and gun buddies.
  • Character contract levels
  • Weapon skin levels
  • Weapon skin bundles
  • Premium Battle Pass and its levels
  • Radiante Points

Once you’re sure that the items you want to refund are unused and were purchased within the last 14 days, you can submit a refund request.
