How to Get Episode 5 Rank Gun Buddy in Valorant

To get the Episode 5 Rank Gun Buddy in Valorant, all you have to do is download the latest update, 6.0. When you do, you should get a notification giving you instructions on how to pick up the special cosmetic. Apparently, it might actually take a few days before you get the notification, but it will work eventually. Hopefully. We’ll explain that in more detail in the next section. Either way, the cosmetic you will get will depend on the rank you’ve achieved in the previous season. Or, at least, that’s the way it should be. Unfortunately, there have been some problems with that, too. So, let’s cover that in a bit more detail, shall we?

Valorant No Rank Gun Buddy Bug Explained

If you didn’t get the correct Rank Gun Buddy in Valorant, or haven’t received one at all, then you’ve run into a bug that has impacted a lot of people. On the bright side, the developers are aware of this problem and are working on fixing it. As this official tweet reads: “Heads up that we’re aware of and investigating a bug that is rewarding the incorrect Episode 5 Ranked Gun Buddy in some cases. We’ll follow up when a fix is out.” The bad news is that there’s nothing you can do on your end to work around this bug. You have to be patient and wait for the developers to do their thing. The best advice I can give you is to get in touch with Valorant support and log your complaint. Good luck.
