This year is represented by the rabbit, so just as with the Celestial bundle in 2021 and the Tigris skins in 2022, 2023’s Lunar New Year Valorant skins are inspired by the adorable little bouncing mammal.
Entitled ‘Luna,’ the skins themselves are a little reminiscent of Reaver or Ruination, but stray away from the darker themes of their predecessors with swirling golden inlays and sleek aquamarine bodies. The melee is a nasty looking curved dagger that glows an ominous neon blue, and is perfect for those who love dual-sided knives.
The real standout of the bundle, however, is the gun buddy. Much like the tiny bull that accompanied the Celestial skins, this year we have an adorable little white rabbit that, when players fire their weapons, turns into a particularly angry looking blue version of itself.

While I’m not exactly enamoured with the bundle itself, I’m absolutely in love with the buddy. I remember logging on specifically to pick up the bull back in the day when I didn’t even buy anything from the bundle, and I can see me doing the exact same this year.
Sure it’s just a gun buddy, but I’m really glad to see something a little different in Valorant. None of the recent bundles have really bowled me over, and while the battle pass accessories are fun they’re just that: accessories. This little charm feels reminiscent of the good ol’ days of Valorant, and that’s exciting.
