Valorant player will donate $27 to charity for every shorty kill at VCT LOCK//IN
Vitality placed second in their group at Red Bull Home Ground.
Team Vitality player Karel ‘Twisten’ Ašenbrener has pledged to donate 25€, or about $27, for every kill with a shorty at the VCT LOCK//IN tournament.
The VCT LOCK//IN event is set to take place February 13 through March 4 and feature all 30 partnered Valorant teams along with two invited squads from China. Twisten, from the partnered team Vitality, announced on Twitter that he would donate $27 to an unnamed charity for every kill with the shotgun sidearm, the shorty, at the tournament.
The event will feature over 30 matches, all of which are best-of-three outside of the semifinals and finals which are best-of-five. This will give players at the event many chances to purchase the sidearm and earn a kill with the weapon.
The shorty might be a popular purchase at VCT LOCK//IN
The shorty is the cheapest purchasable gun in Valorant. It has two shells in a magazine, with 10 in reserve, and is commonly used on eco rounds to catch opponents off guard in tight corners or as a sidearm for buy rounds. The gun is often used as a surprise purchase, or as a secondary close-ranged option for players using an Operator.
When asked what charity he will donate to, Twisten told Dexerto he will give his contributions to either an animal charity, a charity that deals with mental health or a charity for the victims of the recent earthquakes in Turkey and Syria.
