‘That Is Whack’ Shroud Is Unimpressed With the Upcoming Skin Bundle of Valorant

Published 07/30/2021, 10:42 AM EDT


Shroud has been backing Riot Games’ FPS title Valorant ever since it was released in 2020. The retired professional player has been streaming the game routinely for over a year. The outbursts of cheaters and hackers in other prominent titles caused the community to become frustrated. Moreover, Valorant created a brand new FPS branch that offered a mixture of abilities and crisp gunplay.

Riot Games has also done a fantastic job in rolling out top-notch cosmetic items that are extremely attractive. However, the upcoming skin bundle ‘ Sentinels of the light’ has failed to leave a positive impact on the retired streamer.

” What the f**k, that is whack, I um don’t like it. I do not like it. It’s like a scuffed singularity. Oh, there is a knife? Knife’s gotta be cool then, right? Okay, the knife is pretty cool, alright I will admit, the knife is pretty cool. It’s not that cool but you know, it’s not, this ain’t it, this skin ain’t it, but dope finisher.”

Shroud prefers simplicity over complexity

Shroud likes weapons and skins that carry a simple design. Any bundle that overcomplicates things like the aforementioned bundle tends to rub him the wrong way. The famous streamer’s favorite weapon skin is the wasteland Vandal, as it offers clean sightlines and an uncomplicated design. Sadly, the community does not seem to agree with the streamer as his fans have requested him to do away with the wasteland. The streamer now can be seen using Reaver skin instead of the old-school design.

He has also stated that skins with more complex animations and moving particles are bad for players. These things can easily distract players from focusing their shot on the enemies and instead draws attention away from the game. He even called these designs of skins ‘pay-to-lose’ as they do not fit into the game.

Shroud has merely shared his personal opinion about the upcoming skins. Fans can still disagree with the streamer if they don’t feel the same way about the cosmetic bundles.
