The LVL Clash 2 Valorant Ignition Series event marks the final event in the tournament series for Europe. 16 of the region’s best teams battled it out for €15,000 and regional glory, with G2 Esports coming out on top.

European Valorant has been dominated by one force ⁠— G2 Esports. They’ve hardly been challenged, having only lost one best of three across all the previous Ignition Series events.


Many wondered if the balance of power shift just as the Ignition chapter ends. And the answer is no, as G2 comfortably (for the most part) overtook all opponents in LVL Clash 2. Following on from the successful first clash in beta, this event had more on the line and bigger bragging rights up for grabs.

With almost double the prize pool on offer ⁠— €15,000 ⁠— and plenty of bragging rights, this was arguably the most important event in European Valorant so far. While FPX proved a tough test and Bonk made an incredible run, G2 ultimately cemented themselves as the best team in Europe (at the very least). And they didn’t think it was surprising at all.


Who played in LVL Clash 2?

16 of the best Valorant teams in Europe took battle in LVL Clash 2, split into four groups. 13 of the teams, including Liquid, G2 Esports, BIG, Ninjas in Pyjamas, FPX, Giants Gaming, and BBL Esports were invited.

Valorando ⁠— a German squad ⁠— were invited after taking home the beta tournament. Angry Titans and Wave Esports qualified through the Contenders Cup on August 23. But it was G2 who separated themselves from the pack, not losing a map, and deciding that they’re tired of Europe and want to beat TSM on LAN next.

How to get free Valorant ‘Pay Respects’ Gun Buddy with Prime Gaming

Published: 20/Oct/2020 11:10

Riot Games and Twitch have come together to offer Prime Gaming (formerly Twitch Prime) users and Valorant players free in-game cosmetics, with a new Gun Buddy able to pick up and attach to your weapons available now.

Valorant and Twitch have worked together in the past, with fans able to get beta keys from watching select Valorant Twitch streams when the game was in its beta phase.


Now, they’re keeping fans interested with yet another Gun Buddy attachment after giving away the Netter Treter previously.

The charm attachment isn’t likely to make you better at the game, but the new Pay Respects Gun Buddy is a funny one and will at least make for something cool to show your friends (and your enemies).

Valorant Act 3 brings a bunch of new content — but Prime Gaming offers even more on top of that.

Valorant ‘Pay Respects’ Gun Buddy

If you weren’t able to get the Netter Treter Gun Buddy when it was available, or wasn’t sure how, fret not, because we’ll be able to help you with the new Pay Respects cosmetic so you can adorn it on your weapons.

Here’s what you’ve got to do to get the new Gun Buddy, as well as any drops made available in the future:

  1. Head to your Twitch connections to make sure your Twitch and Riot Games accounts are linked.
  2. Head to the Valorant page on Prime Gaming.
  3. Make sure you’re logged in to Amazon Prime Gaming, or sign up for it (reminder: this costs $12.99 per month).
  4. Once logged in, click ‘Claim Now’ on the Pay Respects Gun Buddy and the item should be added to your in-game inventory next time you play!

Some rewards have already been and gone, but more are on the way.

On the Valorant Prime Gaming page, it states that members can “Unlock Gun Buddies and a Spray in Valorant,” which suggests the next drop might be a new spray, but you should keep your eyes peeled to see what else pops up.


The ‘Pay Respects’ Gun Buddy pays homage to the age-old “Press F to pay respects” meme, so maybe we’ll see something similar from Riot and Twitch in the future.
