Please Stop Asking Our Employees For Valorant’s Fist Bump Gun Buddy, Riot Says
Riot released a PSA today on how Valorant players can earn a Fist Bump Gun Buddy charm. But really, it was Riot’s polite way of asking players to stop spamming dev Twitter DMs for charm, because players can only get charm by “showing good sportsmanship when playing games.” ‘a match with a Riot employee’.
Riot specifically pointed out that it’s not a good idea to ask a Riot employee for the charm. “There’s a limit to the number of Fist Bumps each Rioter can give out,” Riot said. “So they’re unlikely to give you one just because you asked for it – if anything, that lessens your chances.”
Riot also stated that no Rioter will ever offer players to sell a Gun Buddy and that submitting a ticket for a Gun Buddy while claiming good sportsmanship will not work either. The company added that following Rioters on Twitter and sneaking into their DMs won’t work either – guess what?
“You made us do this,” Felix Morgan, Head of Action Games at Riot tweeted. Greg Adler, League Operations Manager at Riot, also tweeted the PSA with a funny reaction to the look of his DMs – seagulls chanting “Mine”. Another Riot employee reminded Valorant players that Rioters often play incognito, so it’s best to play with good sportsmanship at all times.
There you have it, Valorant players: getting a Fist Bump Gun buddy will simply depend on your chance of encountering a Riot employee in a match.
