Imperium skinline: price, release date, and more
The Riot team is adding a new bundle named “Imperium,” and fans will shortly meet the skins in the game. Today, we will explain to you everything you need to know about the Imperium skinline, release date, price, gun skins, melee weapon, and many more.
VALORANT’s Episode 7 Act 2 is here, bringing about potential changes to the game's meta once again. Jett has undergone significant nerfs this time, and other popular agents like Astra and Skye have also seen adjustments, all seen in the VALORANT Patch Notes 7.04.
Apart from all of these changes, the new Act introduced a fresh map called Sunset, a straightforward location based in LA.
Amidst these updates, a premium skin collection named Imperium will make its debut alongside Episode 7 Act 2. The theme of this skin bundle is characterized by elegance and magic, complete with a finisher animation that summons a dragon.
What is the VALORANT Imperium skinline?
The upcoming Imperium bundle is the latest set of skins arriving in VALORANT as part of Episode 7 Act 2. The Imperium skinline includes skins for Judge, Operator, Sheriff, and Vandal as well as a dual-handed Melee named “Blades of Imperium. There are three variants: Black, White, and Red.

“We were inspired by the dragons of the East and jewel materials. We worked with our China team and looked at artifacts from China to see how we can incorporate the gold ornaments in the gun design. Our goal was to make the weapons feel like they were treasures imbued with magic. The variants were inspired by Chinese mythology, with each weapon variant representing different dragon kings and their respective colors,” said Art Direction Senior Manager Kerwin Atienza about the new Imperium skinline.
Imperium skin weapons
The new Imperium skinline includes four weapon skins and a melee skin. Here are the Imperium skin weapons:
- Imperium Judge
- Imperium Operator

Imperium skin release date
VALORANT Imperium skinline will be released on August 29, 2023 alongside Episode 7 Act 2. Players will be able to buy the bundle or any of the skins in the game store.
Imperium skin price
Just like the previous bundles and skinlines, Riot will let players get the whole bundle or choose whichever skin they want within the bundle. Here are the Impierum skin prices, including the whole bundle and every weapon individually:
- Bundle: 8,700 VP
- Blades of Imperium (dual-handed melee): 4,350 VP
- Judge: 2,175 VP
- Operator: 2,175 VP
- Sheriff: 2,175 VP
- Vandal: 2,175 VP
The melee weapon of the Imperium bundle, a.k.a the Imperium knife in VALORANT, is a one or dual-handed weapon that fascinated many fans in the teaser video. The Imperium melee is only a one-handed weapon when it is first purchased in the game. Still, you can spend some of your Radianite Points to boost it to the second level to get slick animations, an extra attacking style, and a second weapon into your other hand. It becomes a dual-handed melee weapon that looks pretty sick when improved to level two.
