The Duality player cards should be in everyone’s collection soon without having to insert any code.
Original story follows below
If there’s one thing that Valorant fans love, it’s snazzy new cosmetics to add to their inventory. From skins to gun buddies, sprays to cards, Riot Games’ flagship FPS has it all.
Releasing alongside the trailer is the new Duality Card, but it’s only available for a limited time. Here’s how to get yours.
Valorant Duality Code
In order to snag your Valorant Duality card, you’ll need to enter a specific code on redeem.playvalorant.com. That code is ‘YTILAUD,‘ which happens to be ‘Duality’ backwards.
Importantly, as there are millions of people scrambling to get the card, you’ll need to be patient as the website tries to cope with the demand.
How to get the Valorant Duality card
In order to claim your card, there’s a couple of steps you’ll need to follow. While they’re pretty easy, there’s a little bit of waiting involved.
- Go to redeem.playvalorant.com.
- As aforementioned, the site is incredibly busy. You may need to wait for 30 seconds for it to load.
- If you encounter a “504 Gate-Way Time Out” error, refresh and wait.
- Select ‘Sign in with your Riot Account.’
- If you receive the 504 error again, just close the error tab and click ‘sign in’ again.
- Enter the code ‘YTILAUD‘ when prompted (it does not matter that it isn’t 12 digits.)
- Same story if that error appears: refresh and you’re sorted.
- Jump into Valorant.
- Go to “Collection,” then the ‘arsenal’ tab.
- Click on ‘Player Card’
- Your Duality card should be there and ready for you to equip.
While there is a lot of back and forth with errors due to the rush of users on the site, it’s worth it in the end!
When do I need to claim the card by?
While the card was initially only available for 48 hours after the release of the Duality cinematic, issues with the website have led Riot to remove the time limit.
