For 2024’s Pride Month in June, Riot Games is giving players the chance to unlock special cosmetic items League of Legends, Valorant, and its other titles.

Riot has been celebrating Pride since 2021, mainly with free cosmetics. Sometimes it recycles items and other times, it introduces brand-new items. Every year usually contains the option to unlock Rainbow trails and icons or emotes of queer characters. Fans have been eagerly waiting to see what this year’s Pride celebration would bring.

Here’s how players can gain Pride items in different games and even share their own art and memes. 

All Pride Month items in Valorant, League of Legends

Valorant and League of Legends have an assortment of Pride Month-themed emotes and profile items that players can unlock through missions or purchase through the in-game shop.

Here’s what’s available across each title:

  • League of Legends – Emotes, icons
  • TFT –  Past Pride releases, trails, brand-new emote
  • LoL: Wild Rift – Rainbow for All trail, emotes, previous Pride gear, icons, love banner 
  • Valorant – Title card, Pride title, Tactibear Gun Buddy

Riot is also encouraging players to participate and engage outside the game itself through its Community Pride Hub.

It’s also seeking submissions of Valorant, League of Legends, and Arcane fan art or cosplay photos that celebrate Pride Month from fans.

Most Pride rewards are available from May 31 until the end of June, though all unlocked items are permanently added to players’ collections.
