The Valorant system has been the subject of much debate and confusion since its inception. Unfortunately, Game Developer documentation on it has been sparse and lacking in important details.
After reviewing two years of archived chat logs between players, the following points appear to be agreed upon by consensus.
what are the valorant ranks?
The valorant ranks are a means of measuring the time you have spent as each class and job combination. The numbers can be viewed by pressing L1+R1 on your keyboard (default controls, so if you use someone else’s keyboard, such as at an internet café, keep in mind that this may not work), or using the character menu (the default hotkey is “c”).
They appear to be theoretically infinite – in other words, if you switch jobs/classes enough times, your total time playing each job/class will eventually equal the total number of available combinations. The numbers also seem to be per character. If you have two characters that are identical in every way except gender, they will have similar but distinct valorant numbers.
How to get sweaty skins in Fortnite
Once you have selected a character, press L1+R1. The valorant ranks will appear at the top of the upper left corner of the screen. A small bar appears indicating what class/job combination you are representing with that rank. Below that is a number, followed by -% for all the classes and jobs the character has at that rank.
For instance, if you have 5 characters with 175 ranks each for bard and nothing else, your total would be 875 -% (175*5) and there would be a bar representing each of those bards below the number. If all 5 had 150 ranks in pugilist, the total would be 875 -% (150*5), with 5 bars.
At any time you can switch to a different character. Your valorant rank for that combination will remain the same, but it will now be represented by a different bar in the upper left corner of your screen. Your current job/class combination has
What do the sweaty skins look like in Fortnite
Once you have selected a class/job combination, press L1+R1 to view your valorant ranks. A bar will appear in the upper left corner of your screen representing that class or job you are currently assigned to. This is reflected by the first number below that bar. If you are using multiple characters who are all identical, the bars will only appear once, despite them being for different characters.
Below that bar is a number -% which represents how many total ranks you have accumulated in that class/job combination.
Which sweaty skin is the best in Fortnite
For instance, if you have 150 ranks in Dragoon and 30 ranks in Bard on your character with 200 total jobs/classes, the first number will be 150 -% and the second 0.
It should also be noted that there is no indication how many levels each rank is equal to. However, it seems to average around 5-10 levels depending on level and class/job combination.
For instance, a character with 250 ranks in pugilist will have the same rank as a character with 200 ranks in gladiator (assuming both classes are 50). A character that has 100 levels in gladiator and 150 levels in pugilist will have the same rank as someone who has 200 levels in gladiator (assuming pugilist is 50).
The ranks seem to be assigned based on the percentage of time you’ve spent playing a class/job combination. For instance, if you have played bard for 3 months and pugilist for 1 month, your bard rank will be higher than your pugilist rank – and within that category it will likely be significantly higher.
