Prime skin bundle is one of the legendary cosmetic lines in Valorant. The Prime weapons have a unique sound animation that adds crispiness to aim and accuracy, making them a desired bundle. However, Riot Games' skin store doesn't sell a particular item for a long time as cosmetics keep rotating.
Many players couldn't get their hands on the Prime skin bundle due to the high price of 7,100 Valorant points, and some just missed them on rotation. RivalRudra has still managed to get his own Prime Vandal made out of box cardboard, coloured paper sheets, and glossy photo paper.
The designer revealed that he simplified the designs because he doesn't own advanced equipment like a 3D printer. The replica took two weeks to be completed, but it looks exactly like the in-game weapon due to detailing.
The cardboard skin had an exact gold, black and royal purple body as the virtual weapon. The creator used glossy paper to incorporate the realistic glass-like effect the Prime Vandal skins are famous for. The pictures of Prime Vandal were a carbon copy of the in-game skin, but the creator also attached a shooting video that looked like an animation clip straight out of Valorant. He even replicated the hand movement of the Valorant characters during the weapon inspection animation.
All in all, players loved RivalRundra's concept and asked for a guide or measurements. But the skins were "eyeballed," which is why the creator couldn't share more details. Valorant skins in real life is a new trend among creative players who are actively playing the game. Previously, another fan developed a realistic default Phantom and received praises from one of the developers at Riot Games.

While bundles don't return to the Valorant market after their rotation has expired after 15 days, players can still get their hands on certain weapon skins. The four-skin market switches up individual weapon skins after every 24 hours, so you may want to set your sights on that and pray for a Prime Vandal to pop up.

How to Get Rambo Skin in Call of Duty: Warzone
Up to this point, Call of Duty: Warzone hasn’t really been known for its crossovers with other franchises.
We’ve seen them happen in the past with the likes of Leatherface coming to the game as part of a Halloween event, but there’s been nothing quite on the level of Fortnite where a different crossover happened every week at one point.
With that said, some big names are coming to the game later this month and if you’re a fan of action movies, then this will be right up your alley.
Activision has confirmed that Rambo will be coming to the game in the very near futute and there have also been hints that point towards the debut of Die Hard hero John McClane as well.
Here’s a look at what we know so far.Rambo Arrives May 20

The wait for Rambo will be a quick one as he’ll be arriving into the game beginning May 20.
From there, he’ll likely just be available for purchase like any of the operators in the game. Warzone won’t be the only place you can play as him either as the teaser image includes Cold War and Mobile.
It makes a lot of sense to go down this path as Rambo, despite being a character that’s 40 years old, maintains mainstream popularity.
Outside of Call of Duty, he is a character in Mortal Kombat 11, so he’s definitely been making his rounds across the video game world. It also looks like he’ll have the likeness of Sylvester Stallone, so you don’t have to worry about some off-brand version of the character either.Don’t Forget John McClane

A teaser posted on May 8 hinted at John McClane coming to the game with Rambo. While this one isn’t as explicit, anybody who has seen the original Die Hard film would recognize all of the references.
Of course, the most prominent giveaway is the fact it says “Yippee Ki Yay,” which is Bruce Willis’s character’s catchphrase in the film.
No release date for him has been given, but we expect it to be some time around when Rambo comes into the game.
As for why all of this is happening, there’s a good reason for that. The recent live event took us back to 1984, so the game is able to take a bunch of characters from that era and introduce them to Warzone without question. Rambo and John McClane are all that have been shown so far, but there’s definitely room for more.
The new Verdansk 1984 map debuted back in April following a massive Warzone live event. There are plenty of new things to explore, so if you haven’t played the battle royale mode of Call of Duty in a while, now would be a good time to jump in.
If you’re a fan of movies from the 1980s, then you’ll definitely want to hope in and see everything the game has to offer now. Even if you’re not, there are plenty of reasons to give Warzone another shot because the game gets very frequent updates.
