The new ‘Account Leveling’ system has arrived in VALORANT with the much-awaited Episode 3 Act 1 update. And we have everything you need to know about the new progression system.
Episode 3 Act 1 is titled ‘Reflection,’ which comes with a new KAY/O. The devs have also brought in several competitive changes with the new patch. Every existing agent in the game has gone through some changes. For instance, Jett can no longer dash through Cypher’s tripwire, a change that is definitely bad news for Jett mains.
Besides all the Ranked and performance changes, Riot has finally released the new Account Leveling system.

New Valorant Level System Explained
Apparently, the new progression system is there to appreciate you for playing VALORANT. To do that, the system will reward you with a numeric level that will display on your player card.
The numeric level will depend on the number of hours you’ve invested in playing VALORANT. Also, it doesn’t matter what game mode you play, the leveling system will work the same; even if you only play Unrated or Spike Rush. So, basically, you can predict how much time players have invested in the game by seeing their Account level badge.
The badge, which comes with a numeric value and a border, will change after every 20 levels.
To level up, all you have to do is earn Account Points (AP) by playing the game. The number of AP you earn will depend on the time you spend on every match. Interestingly, your match’s result will also affect the AP, and you will be rewarded with bonus points for your first win of the day.
Once you’ve earned 5000 AP after grinding the game, you will level up and earn a higher badge. For instance, players at level 180 would jump to level 200 after they earn 5000 AP.
Fortunately, the time you’ve spent on VALORANT before Patch 3.0 won’t go to waste either. Riot confirmed that it would reward you between Account Level 1 to 100, depending on how many matches you’ve played before the latest patch.
Besides the ranks, the VALORANT Account leveling system will become another motivating factor for players to grind Riot’s FPS title even more. That’s because everyone would want to earn a badge with a higher level to flaunt it on their player card.
