Valorant Episode 2 is around the corner, and that means the next battle pass is on its way, but a leaker has already spilled the beans on all its content, including all the tiers and rewards. Here’s everything we know so far.

Valorant Episode 1 has been a success, but now that it’s coming to an end after three long Acts, players are already looking forward to Episode 2. Naturally, that means leakers have been on the hunt for whatever details they can find, and it seems like they’ve hit the jackpot.

One leak has already unraveled a lot of information about Agent 14. Now, another one has gone a step further and discovered all the tiers and rewards in the upcoming battle pass.

Keep in mind, though, that the source is Russian. So, not all the names and descriptions are official. Instead, they’re a best-guess based on the images and videos provided. We’ll be sure to update them once more information is available.

The Battle Pass in Valorant Episode 2 has an interesting range of weapon skins, sprays, bling, and more. They can all be seen in the video above.

However, it’s already generating mixed reactions. Some fans feel the content is a little “disappointing”, while others think it’s perfectly fine. Either way, there’s bound to be something for everyone, and it’ll give players something to work towards throughout the upcoming season.

We’ll be sure to update you when the Battle Pass is released in English too.

Blizzard changes Overwatch Priority Pass again to stop system abuse

Blizzard has implemented more changes to their Overwatch Priority Pass program to stop players from abusing the system to get their preferred role more often.

The Priority Pass system in Overwatch has been a successful addition so far. Giving players the option to jump the queue for high-traffic roles by sacrificing a few games has helped tackle the game’s long queue times.

However, it hasn’t been without its flaws. Game quality has been pulled into question, with people playing off-role for these passes. Also, people have been abusing the current system to just stack passes quickly by intentionally losing.

Priority Passes have been a hit with Overwatch players, but it’s not perfect.

Blizzard are looking to crack down on the latter issue with their latest changes to Priority Pass on January 15.

“Our data indicates that the Priority Pass is functioning as intended, generally providing shorter queue times for those who use them. The goal of the Priority Pass is to improve player experience and get players into matches quicker,” community manager Josh Nash told players.

“In the same vein, we don’t want this feature to have a negative impact on the quality of matches for yourself or others. We want to do our part to discourage players from intentionally losing and ruining matches for the sake of earning priority passes.”

If you lose a match while playing for passes, you’ll only gain one pass instead of two. This will stop players from just inting their games for the ticket.

Blizzard are also refunding passes to players if they queued up for a role using Priority Pass, but then had to wait longer than the estimated time for it.

These changes mean you won’t burn through your passes as quickly.

These changes are active immediately, so you can make use of them straight away. Blizzard are continuing to tweak the system as time goes on, and are “ looking into how we can better communicate when you are rewarded passes after playing a match.”
