How can I get a free VP in India?
Though in order to get Valorant Points you have to pay money. However, there are ways you can get some of the Valorant Points for free. If you just need a few Valorant points (50 or fewer) to buy a skin or a battle pass, you can send in graphics or share any personal fan design you’ve created to get the VP you need.
This applies to all Riot Games games you play, not only Valorant. It doesn’t matter how well the artwork is done; if you ask delicately enough, your wish will be granted. Please be aware that this only applies in specific circumstances, and requesting Valorant Points repeatedly will result in your request being denied.
To get free Valorant Points from Riot Games, follow these steps:
- Go to the Valorant Support Page.
- The options are General Game & Feedback and Purchase & In-Game Content.
- Add a thoughtful remark or a scanned copy of your artwork.
- Specify the item you wish to purchase from the shop along with the number of Valorant Points that you require. (Do not request more than 50 VP).
- Wait for a response after submitting the request.
Other than this, there is no other way for obtaining Valorant Points, and any websites with questionable connections or codes are just not valid. On the other side, Amazon Prime/Prime Gaming will soon provide Radianite Points. Make sure not to fall for any website that claims to offer free Valorant Points, you may end up losing your account or other important data.
How do I gift VP in India?
There are many online and physical retailers that sell Valorant gift cards, but you should be careful which ones you trust. You should never buy codes from any other source other than those on the official list of stores that Riot Games has collaborated with. Since Riot Games combined its League of Legends prepaid cards into “Riot Gift Cards” that can be used for League of Legends, Teamfight Tactics, Legends of Runeterra, and Valorant, there are no longer any special Valorant gift cards available.
There are authorized vendors of Valorant Points, such as Codashop, who allow you to top off your account at the same cost as the in-game shop. But these authorized sellers operate in the US only. So in order to gift VP to a friend, you can use Codashop. How Codashop works? You can read it in the “How to buy VP in India” section.

Why did the UPI payment fail in Valorant India?
In 2021, Riot Games made it possible to purchase Valorant Points (VP) in-game using BHIM UPI. Indian gamers were initially dependent on Paytm to purchase virtual currency (VP), but the publisher made it simpler for them to only scan the QR code and pay using their UPI IDs. Many Valorant players, however, have been complaining on social media about a current issue with the payment mechanism that stops South Asian and Indian players from buying in-game content.
The BHIM UPI option enabled players to pay in Indian Rupees, but they could still choose to pay with credit cards or through PayPal (both of which required them to pay in Euros). On Twitter, Riot Games discussed the problem and acknowledged it.
A statement from Riot Games concerning the UPI payment method
The Valorant // India & South Asia Twitter account for Riot Games said on March 9 that they were aware of a problem with the UPI payment system that was preventing players from buying in-game items. You can submit a ticket at https://support-valorant.riotgames.com/hc/en-us/ while we are working on it. We will provide support once we get your ticket.”
At first, the store included a UPI payment option, but when users clicked it then were redirected to Codashop for the transaction, the method of payment was not working. Soon an error message popped on the user’s screen and it said, “Sorry, we are unable to complete your purchase. The payment channel is under maintenance and will [be] back up soon. Need help? Visit our Help Center (error: 1301)”
But as of the present time, the client doesn’t appear to have the option anymore. Notably, the Paytm option vanished from the client in 2021, however, Riot Games later acknowledged that a glitch was to blame.
The PayTM payment option from India is not presently accessible due to a technical issue, according to a tweet from the Valorant // India & South Asia Twitter account on August 13, 2021. “We are working on the fix and apologize for the inconvenience.”
Another one of these technical issues may have caused the UPI option to vanish, but Riot Games is currently trying to fix it, so it may be fixed within a few business days.
However, at the moment of writing this article, Codashop currently says, “UPI is unavailable on Codashop. Rest assured, we are working on bringing UPI back to Codashop.”
So the wait for the community doesn’t end here, however, we may see an announcement from Riot Games, regarding the UPI payment failure. Hopefully, we get a piece of positive news.
