The largest international event in Valorant history is coming up: the VCT Lock In, the world championship series of the competitive FPS game. For the duration of Lock In, Riot Games has announced a Valorant Twitch drops campaign, meaning you'll be able to acquire some sweet in-game treasure just for seeing the action online.
The 'Locked In' title and the 'Dad Hat' buddy on a notched red ribbon represent the stylized Valorant 'V' device in a brown ball cap with finger-painted accents and an eight-pointed Valorant star device.
The process of earning the drops is straightforward: you'll need to log into your Valorant account and connect it to a Twitch or YouTube account. Then it's a matter of following Valorant matches on channels that have drops enabled.
- To earn the Locked In title, watch live games from February 13 – March 4.
- To earn the VCT Lock In Dad Hat Buddy, watch a live game during the Grand Finals March 4.
The VCT Lock In capsule includes exclusive cards, a Raze spray, and a beautiful Misericórdia knife, each in four colours, representing one of Valorant esports regions.
