The Fist Bump gun buddy, better known as the Riot gun buddy, is one of the most coveted Valorant collectibles.
It is so rare that most players want one simply because so few people have it.
The Riot gun buddy cannot be purchased through Valorant’s in-game store, nor can it be unlocked through a Battle Pass or any limited-time events.
The only way to obtain the sought-after gun buddy is through a player’s actions, which Riot Games employee DullMoment detailed on the developer’s support page.

If someone doing that claims to be a Riot Games employee, DullMoment advises that players report the individual in-game.
