Valorant Corbins Light

Riot Games has created a special new gun charm called 'Corbin’s Light' in honor of a young Valorant fan who died of cancer earlier this year. Corbin was a huge Valorant fan who had submitted a request to work with Riot on a design for a Valorant gun skin through the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Sadly, Corbin passed away a few short days after making his request. His family took it upon themselves to share his wish via social media and it thankfully got the attention of Riot fans and developers. Valorant designers then got in touch with Corbin’s older brother who shared Corbin’s ideas with them.

Corbin’s design was inspired by his immense love of stars and space. The design even included the coordinates of a star that was named after him by the Make-A-Wish Foundation. “Corbin’s Light holds deep personal meaning,” explained Catalina Faerman, an associate integration artist at Riot Games who worked on Corbin’s Light. "It was made for one of our players who sadly passed away during his battle with cancer. The Make-a-Wish Foundation named a star after Corbin, so we decided to honor him by creating a Gun Buddy inspired by his star, and additional design notes from his brother.”

Corbin’s Light will be free to all players in Valorant’s Episode 5 Act 3 battle pass.
