Valorant drops a teaser for the League of Legends crossover

Valorant’s team dropped a teaser trailer for an elaborate crossover that features the upcoming skin bundle Ruination skin. This new skin carries a particular animation and skin color that points to a potential League of Legends character.

This skin seems very familiar to a particular assassin class champion, Viego, aka the ruined king. The skin showcases a similar green aura and a death animation that will remind you of the particular character. The trailer showcases the newest agent in a particularly difficult situation, where he must defend the site all alone.

KAY/O is in the middle section of the Breeze map on A site. All  5 enemies are approaching him from all sides, and he is only equipped with a shotgun. The agent manages to frag 3 agents in Jet, Cypher, and Astra near the metal door area. Out of nowhere, he discovers a guardian that jet dropped on the map.

This guardian carried a green color and a unique pattern, which he uses to frag Sova, and finally Reyna. However, the final frag reveals a new death animation that brings us back to Viego from League of Legends.
