Since Riot Games launched VALORANT last year, many players have requested a butterfly knife added to the game. The butterfly knife was iconic in Valve's tactical shooter CS:GO, and since many players have switched to VALORANT, it's not surprising that many players have requested Riot to add it in the game.

Riot Games granted the players' request, and included the butterfly knife melee in the latest weapon skin bundle, which costs 7,100 VP, but players can buy the cosmetics individually, and the butterfly knife costs around 3,500 VP. Players will need to use Radianite Points to upgrade the butterfly knife to get the cool animation.
