As of Feb. 21, VCT team capsules are available for purchase within the VALORANT client’s esports hub for the 33 teams from the Americas, EMEA, and Pacific leagues. The Chinese teams will unveil their team capsules in May as a part of Masters Shanghai. Stocked with branded esports goodies, every team capsule includes four cosmetic items: a Classic skin, a player card, a team logo spray, and a team logo gun buddy. In North America, each capsule will cost 2,340 VALORANT Points, though the price varies slightly depending on your region.

The Classic skin for each VALORANT team includes AR effects when the weapon is inspected, showing VCT ’24 and the team’s logo and abbreviation, in addition to sound effects when firing. The unique player card in each team capsule was designed not only by Riot artists but in partnership with each org, capturing a piece of each team’s unique identity that has developed over the first year of the VCT. Each player card is different from the next, as every org came up with something different to represent their team, players, and fans.

Paper Rex’s team card features a dinosaur, for example, while DRX’s player card showcases a hooded figure on the Seoul skyline. Other teams took a literal approach, like Cloud9 and Team Liquid, whose designs feature clouds and a waterfall, respectively.

The VCT team capsules not only let everyone in the lobby know who your favorite org is but will also support each org directly. Similar to the VCT Champions bundles of seasons past, a percentage of team capsule sales will be shared with the VCT teams throughout the year. This time, each team will also receive the profits from their specific bundle, so if you want to support one of the orgs directly, this is a fantastic way to do so.

VALORANT esports head Leo Faria said in a press release that part of the goal of releasing team capsules is to continue building a sustainable esports model with the VCT, creating more opportunities for orgs to drive revenue. After a 2023 season full of intense storylines treasured by new and dedicated fans alike, now is the perfect time for fans to commit to their team.

The 2024 VCT team capsules will be available to purchase in the VALORANT esports hub for the duration of the 2024 season.
