VALORANT: How to Get the Pocket Sage Gun Buddy for Free

Riot Games’ 5v5 competitive shooter has become one of the most popular FPS games. With its unique roster of Agents, interesting maps, powerful guns, and exciting cosmetics, it is not hard to see why Riot Games’ tactical shooter shot up the FPS popularity charts just two years after its initial release.

Riot Games has also given players a ton of choices when it comes to in-game customization. Players can buy and slap on their favorite weapon skins, gun buddies, and other in-game vanities that can show other players their own style in-game.

While some of these cosmetics can be free, almost everything else is locked behind a paywall. The good news is that there are ways to get some free cosmetics in VALORANT. You can pick up a free Pocket Sage Gun Buddy by linking your Riot Games account with Game Pass. We will show you how you can do that in this guide.

This isn’t the first time Riot Games has given away free cosmetics in VALORANT. If you are a regular here in PlayerAssist, you might have already seen our guide on how to get a free Gun Buddy in the Keep It Safer Gun Buddy by simply turning on Two-Factor Authentication for your Riot Games account. Another Gun Buddy that Riot Games have given out for free is the ultra-exclusive Riot Fist Bump Gun Buddy, which Riot devs can only give out.

This time, Riot Games is giving players a chance to get a free Gun Buddy by linking their account with Game Pass. Here is how you can pick up the Pocket Sage Gun Buddy for free.

There are tons of Gun Buddies up for grabs in VALORANT. There are as many as 200 unique Gun Buddies in the game. If you’re looking to collect them all, expect to spend quite a bit of money to acquire them all in-game.

With that said, some of the most exclusive Gun Buddies can only be acquired through special limited-time promotions. With VALORANT’s introduction to Game Pass, Riot Games and Microsoft give players a free Gun Buddy to commemorate the partnership.
